I expect a swift, strong and specific response from every serious candidate.

1. Thank you all for your concern.

I will state this plainly. Any candidate who fails to respond to these acts with a swift, strong and specific condemnation loses the support of all decent voters.
I mean this absolutely, including the implications of that statement. This means you.

3. The first image

is from the 1490's: conquistadors using dogs to subdue New World natives.
The second image is from September 3, 2016: Dakota Access Pipeline security using dogs to try to subdue natives.

The recent event has been discussed here:
