I don’t plan to talk about the case or investigation there of in this post with the exception of this one thing “it makes me happy and sad at the same time that they haven’t seemed to find anything negative to spin about this young man”. I want to speak in general and sadly enough with a subject like this I can, as people we have to get our youth under control I don’t pretend to know if the initial protest was organized or not but the image above is the one that will be remembered by people on either side of the argument even if not really affected by the situation. I can only assume (as I do not know them) that the family of Michael Brown never wanted looting and riots only answers but it only takes a few to mess it up for the whole, and it hurts that when called upon we as people usually fail. There needs to be a conversation with every knuckle head from someone who knows them with a clear head to say “there is not a time for that, pass it on” responding with looting and violence will guarantee our answers will have to wait, it will give them time and reason to cover up what they will and hell it is just not how you respond. That’s your home and because you felt this was the opportune time (no police presence) you busted into your moms room and ransacked the place for material things. And on the other side.
Police violence… Who are police? We don’t vote for them they’re not elected officials they fill out an application, take a test, and go thru an academy, that should scare everybody. Do you realize how many people with issues get jobs they shouldn’t have make it thru all the steps and don’t show crazy till they have the job? Think of places you’ve worked people that slipped thru. I think cops need to study psychiatry and be evaluated by a psychiatrist often. I think they need to be held to higher non-lethal standards. police should not be allowed to use lethal force unless being physically fired upon not based on what they thought they saw. I can’t be a genius and so can only assume that maybe non-lethal is highly expensive but must cost the citizens way less then the investigations into wrong police wrong doings and the outcomes there of. -Vonte
