Ferguson and now Baltimore?
This Is Why I Can't Watch The News
I literally pass by a television with the news on from time to time and see nothing but negativity. Ferguson, Missouri was a disgrace. One human officer killed another human being and the racist communities decided that this would be the perfect time to note that the individual that was shot was African-American. Just so happens that the officer was a Caucasian individual which inherently means that he is a racist human being. He couldn't have shot at the "black" man because he did something wrong. He simply hates black people. Including his co-workers who are black and he spends all day with. The spin that Al Sharpton puts on these occurrences literally turns my stomach. never would I have thought in one million years that a man would be paid, highly paid, to stir up trouble and encourage the rioting and looting of businesses and homes in the name of ending racism. All the while, encouraging the people of the area to continue to destroy people's lives and businesses in order to get the message across.
The Scum Of The Earth
How many educated people (yes, educated) believe that the rioting in Ferguson and now Baltimore have been productive? Does anyone truly know what they were/are rioting for? Was the outcome of killing people in the streets, including good police officers, burning cars, houses and businesses what they were expecting? You see, as a human being I know that these actions are wrong. Not just because they hurt innocent people, but also because the reaction from the initial event is not going to warrant an outcome that is favorable to the original problem. No one was focused on the fact that a man was killed. Everyone was worried that World War III was about to break out. It takes a complete animal to act the way the individuals did and have currently been acting in these two instances. Again, I know this because I'm human, and I know better as an intelligent life form. These acts of terrorism should be treated as such. The army should have stepped in and made sure that these losers were unable to continue the horrible acts that they were doing with a show of force.
When Did This Become Okay?
We allow these barbaric acts to go on and give the excuse that people need to express themselves. Expression used to be done in the form of art. I guess burning buildings could be considered beautiful if you look at them from a high vantage point. They probably look more scary than anything, though if you're trying to breastfeed your infant two doors down from people shooting guns into the air and throwing Molotov cocktails into random buildings. When is someone going to say "enough is enough?" What will it take; how many deaths will need to occur in order for action to be taken against these degenerates? It's as though we've taken the term "freedom" to an entire new level; one that our forefathers would be disgraced to have been a part of.
