There’s a good reason why so many people are now taking notice of the injustice that has been the norm since this land was stolen from the Native People many years ago. There has always been corruption and injustice since the Europeans crawled on shore of North America, following fast on the heels of the Pilgrims that tried to escape their evil but did not succeed. The conquerors were able to hide much of their deception until recently. Until we had people that cared and demanded the truth and they dug for it, risked their lives and jobs to blow their whistles trying to put an end to all the lies, deceit and corruption they were witness to.
Human nature stinks, to put it mildly. We are complex, potentially dangerous animals that seem to forever struggle with our inner demons, some more than others, unpredictable, sometimes unfair and carrying so much baggage! This was the very reason that Christ was born over 2000 years ago in Bethlehem.
Jesus was hated by most in His time as He still is today. Many are the non-believers who are ignorant, jealous at heart and refuse to see the truth. As Jesus said, the road to salvation is narrow indeed and few shall find it unless they really wish to do so in their heart. Knock and it shall be opened. Pray and He will hear the sincerity of that heart. No one can fool God and most have stopped trying. It is evident in how many run around “doing their own thing” or “living their dreams.” And what is the key word to all these little beliefs? You got it! It’s just plain selfishness.
Man is clannish by nature and we will always own the belief system we grew up with. Some men try to pass themselves off as pious and completely impartial in the pretense to rule over the rest of us. The ability to do this is not possible and I think most of us know this. If not, it should be evident with the way our government makes some of our laws and rulings that effect everyone.
Granted I don’t always agree with the amount of control our state, local and federal government has over all of us, but I do agree on one important thing and that is that there be standardized law and order that apply to everyone, regardless to their race, color, creed or job they hold. Our American Constitution guarantees us to the right of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It’s a given that without our lives, we can’t experience liberty or happiness here on earth so killing one another is not an option except in genuine, not perceived, danger to one or another’s life.
We now have an over militarized trained and suited up police that views the American citizens as the enemy. Who’s idea was this in the first place? How did this area of our government get out of control like this? It appears that for any crime the punishment is murder with no trial. That’s totally against what this country was supposed to have been based on. It’s one thing to have to kill someone who is shooting at you, but because they run away or you think they are going for a weapon when you ask for their ID and they reach into their car, that’s not acceptable. Keeping law and order is not a job for cowards or immature egomaniacs that become an officer so they can intimidate others. It used to attract honorable men with high ideals of making this world better. Now it appears that it only attracts gangsta’ bully types in which many are just as corrupt as the criminals they arrest, assault or kill daily for daring to challenge their authority.
Men should not be allowed to be armed if they plan on killing those that simply refuse to “kneel before Zod!” Officers, leave the egos at home if you plan on going to work and then do a good, honorable day’s work to the best of your ability. The reason the criminals don’t like the cops is they seem to think that they are better than everyone else and these rules and laws are only for the rest of us. I have a problem with that as well.
I would hate to see what would happen if all these officers that are being harassed and disrespected by these criminals and protesters all walked off their jobs to let us take care of ourselves. What do any of you really think that would look like? If all the really bad, mentally unbalanced, greedy thugs thought they could get away with anything, where do you think they’d stop and why? This is why we need other men with guns. Some people don’t have consciences or any inner moral compass and sadly are very much like animals that need to be constantly monitored and controlled because they do lack the ability to control themselves. These are very dangerous people and they do ruin the world for everyone else. This is why many like this end up incarcerated for life as repeat offenders. I feel that this is what’s really unfair. Because evil does exist, we expect good men to save us from them because for some reason we have been told we can’t or shouldn’t do this for ourselves. We do have real problems if these men are not as good as they are supposed to be. When any begin to behave even worse than the animals they supposed to go after, it completely negates their very purpose for doing what they are paid to do.
Every government agency has checks and balances. I took it for granted that our government would think that sending men with guns to control other men would be something they would be concerned with and monitor. It does not appear to be the case but this has to change. There should have always been an agency that oversees all our police forces in all states and cities. Something this important should never be left to the honor system when honor does not appear to exist anymore.
