Is It Evil To Want To Be Safe?
In response to a comment by the Defendant's family
Is it evil to want to be safe, and protect the world from crime?
If there was no law enforcement, would we ever have a good time?
If the bully always ruled, just because they have a gun,
what do you think would be the outcome to your wife; your daughter; your son?
If there were no consequences, for beating, or shooting another,
would YOU still be alive? I ask you, my human brother.
It might make you uncomfortable to hear the things you've heard,
as no one wants a loved one to suffer by the truth in someone's word.
The D.A. isn't evil for doing a difficult job.
It is good to protect the world from those who murder, ra_e, and rob.
What takes stronger character, and what makes one more brave?
Pointing a gun at the defenseless, or asking the armed to think, and behave?
I would have defended YOU if another stuck a gun in your ribs,
and defending another's liberty is too sacred to tarnish with fibs.
I don't want any one locked in a cage, even the men who shot me,
but unless we're truly safe, can we ever really be free?
I would rather be friends with your family, without sitting in the witness stand,
but if attempted murder were never punished, there would be hell upon the land.
Sincerely, a loving man
