Why Trump should be reelected

Why not net launchers?

Why has it not been suggested that police use net launchers and/or tranquilizers/sedatives to dispel rioters ("Rochester police leaders retire after suffocation death," Web, Sept. 8)? With multiple police officers on the scene and time to respond before Jacob Blake reached his vehicle, a net launcher would have worked. With Daniel Prude, a sedative likely would have worked.

Atlantic piece a desperate grab

Democrats and Never Trumpers cannot get any lower than to accuse President Trump of insulting our fallen troops ("Should Americans believe Trump or The Atlantic?" Web, Sept. 9). Why would Mr. Trump want to do that? And why would former National Security Adviser John Bolton want to lie for Mr. Trump after what's transpired bewteen them?

Left wants Trump out at any cost

Only Trump can end violence

Violence, destruction and mayhem taking place in urban centers across the country are undermining our democracy and destroying our way of life. Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis and other U.S. cities are undergoing unceasing violence by Black Lives Matter, Antifa and similarly ideologically abhorrent groups. What will it take to stop this unmitigated hate and destruction when the mayors and governors of these states and cities refuse to face what has been done to people's property and lives? There is only one person who can put an end to this crisis of major proportions, and that is President Trump.

ACLU makes dangerously evil case for legal prostitution

- The Washington Times

The American Civil Liberties Union has called for "sex work" -- prostitution -- to be decriminalized to protect prostitutes from police harassment and to open the doors for them to receive health care benefits. This is dangerous. Why not just put some children on the auction block for sex traffickers to buy?
