John Kennedy was shot, was he a democrat or republican?

 He was a Democrat who was shot by a socialist. A little more than 50 years after his death, coincidentally now about 75% of Democrats are socialists. Strange how that worked out.

 Out of all this talk about the shooting .....

 How about those two police officers that from news reports, ran across open ground to engage the suspect. They likely had only handguns against a rifle.  In combat that is a terrible mismatch that should not be undertaken however these two dedicated police officers  did just that.  They could have sought cover behind the dugout, called for help and be the last line of defense for the people around them.  To do so would not be cowardly. Those officers did not take that option.  They went into the fight completely out gunned. 

 What likely would have been double digit fatalities, including those police officers, turned out to only have one death… the suspect. 

 With overwhelming odds against them they ran toward the fight.  That was an unbelievable display of courage and call to duty. 

 Thank you my brother and sister.

 The ethnicity question is on there for identification purposes. 

Is a background check for the purpose of identification? People will say that it aides in investigations, but is that the purpose of background checks? Isn't the whole purpose to determine who is qualified to own a gun? If you say that it's to help in identification then we might as well have a full blown gun registration.

I am saying that if you have two John Smiths living in Beaumont and one is black and the other is white, it might be easy to see which is which on the background if there is an issue.   Almost everything in law-enforcement is broken up by race and sex. 

 If you were trying to find an ulterior motive for the question, I don't believe it's there.  We say black, white, Hispanic, Asian, male and female so much that is hard to listen to cops off duty talking about the any situation without everybody that they are talking about being identified by race or sex when the reality you have nothing to do with a story.
