Lock him up?

In the current reality of our republic every citizen should stay up on current events using multiple sources. A baseball game is not a typical source for political news. During Sunday’s World Series game the current president was booed at apparently 100 decibels, and fans chanted “lock him up!”. The chants are not a good thing, but are totally understandable given the steady stream of reports on presidential wrongdoing. I agree with pundits who say that the office of the presidency should be respected, but we do live in a republic full of citizens who possess freedom of speech. I am proud of our country and our citizens when they base their actions and choices on facts. Was the chant too negative? Maybe. We live in challenging times that push all of us to think before we act, but I would rather see expression and action than timidly bowing to norms in abnormal times.
