Yoda offers a bit of wisdom here about rushing to judgement.
“Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.” and
“In a dark place we find ourselves, and a little more knowledge lights our way.”. – Yoda.
Be very careful, America. One thing worse than a ‘police state’ – where by the way, Trump would lead us – would be a ‘police-less state. Believe me, it would take a whole new batch of Wyatt Earps to calm the new ‘wild wild west’ that would evolve in a police-less state.
Don’t defund or abolish the police establishment, just control them better and retrain them. Case in point – in Duluth the rush to charge the police with assault. I don’t know where the police were going, but they were apparently on a specific mission. If you watch the video closely, you will see the victum was impeding the two officers and may even been touching one of them and flashing something in front of the other. The officers simply pushed the protester out of the way and he tripped over his own feet. At that age is is easy to do. I’m 82 and I lose balance very easily now. And one officer knelt down to render aid, but was pulled up by the other and told to go on. The only charge should have been failure to render aid against the one officer. The other should be commended for trying to follow his training and help the man.
No, IMO, some are in too big a hurry to bring about change (out of the dark). Racism will never be abolished until BLM is changed to ALM. By simply designating any color, race or ethnicity in your slogan is simply a form of racism.
Have a nice day and stay safe.
