It is these days apparently a bedrock conservative view that if one is disrespectful to a police officer, one should be prepared to die for it. I mean sure, I'm all for people showing respect. But to be shot in the street because you don't? I used to be a conservative, myself, many years ago, and I feel like I usually have a handle on how conservatives think. But not with this. I just can't see the rhyme or reason to the respect or death mandate.

What am I missing?
