Seeds of Anarchy

Aug 22 | Posted by: Charlie | Tags: Law enforcement, Race relations

Anarchy as defined in the Webster’s dictionary - A situation of confusion and wild behavior in which the people in a country, group, organization, etc., are not controlled by rules or laws.

I don't know all the circumstances surrounding the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. I don't know what was justified and what wasn’t, whether the young man was acting in a life threatening fashion or whether the officer panicked and pulled the trigger, or if the situation escalated rapidly out of control with fault on both sides of the equation.

I can't even imagine what the family of this young man must be going through and certainly understand the community wanting the truth about what happened and taking to the streets in peaceful demonstrations to motivate a quick solution.

However, the yellow journalism, sensationalized media coverage, political opportunism and incendiary rhetoric coming out of this situation is tearing a whole city apart.

Of course Al Sharpton is on the scene fanning the flames of the racial division he claims to abhor, stirring up as much distrust and dissension as he can and following the TV cameras around like a puppy chasing it's tail.

There are too many unanswered questions to be jumping to conclusions, and the officer’s side of the story is just now coming out.

I heard a lady say that there "is a war on black men". The truth of the matter is that if there is a war on black men it is being waged by other black men, just check the murder statistics in any major city. Black on black crime is rampant.

Desperate cable news outlets have made a reality show out of the situation in Ferguson, with wall to wall 24/7 coverage, amplifying every inflamed word, perpetuating rank rumors, giving major air time to those whose interest it is to fan the flames, to deepen the racial divide in this nation for their own personal and political gain.

Thugs who have no interest in justice for Michael Brown take to the streets to loot innocent store owners and damage property, reveling in the chaos, like out of control fans at a football rally or escapees from some insane asylum.

What's going on in Ferguson, Missouri is partly concerned citizens lawfully taking advantage of their constitutional rights and partly open anarchy, a mob mentality that feeds on itself and spreads like wildfire if it is not contained, and unfortunately containment usually means more violence.

Guns are appearing on the scene now and if this situation is not soon quelled somebody is going to be killed and this time there will be no question who the innocent party is.

The police forces of this nation are overwhelmed, reduced in number, crippled by budget cuts, besieged by opportunistic lawsuits, their lives constantly in danger and eternally criticized by the media as they maintain a three hundred and sixty degree battle line against an enemy that grows larger and more diverse by the day.

Do they make mistakes?

Of course they do, but the police forces and other law enforcement entities in this nation do an incredibly good job of taking care of us, keeping us safe and keeping the bad guys at bay.

America should respect and support that thin blue line.

If you don’t, the next time you're threatened call Al Sharpton.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America

When parents call in Al Sharpton because their thug child died as a result of the wind they have sewn, I simply conclude that the parents were the ones who raised their thug wrongly in the first place. Their is nothing ehtical in an Al Sharpton sermon.

At today's funeral, Mike Brown was referred to as a "gentle soul". There was nothing gentle about him, his rap sheet, and the video footage of roughing up that shopkeeper during the robbery. This of course with Al Sharpton's stamp of approval, and we can see how denial, ignorance and exploitation keep whole communities down in a persistent state of anarchy and chaos.

Charlie, what is your opinion on the militarization of local police? Though the Brown shooting does seem to be in self-defense, the weapons and tactics the police use are quite alarming

Thank. You, Plowboy. God bless you too. :)

Very true, Mr Sharpton uses every angle to turn it into racial hate.

Amen legitlinda, could NOT be put any better. God Bless Plowboy

If the injuries the officer suffered to his face are true, it makes it clear to me that he shot in self defense. With an orbital blowout his eye was probably swollen shut and he would have been stunned. It explains why his aim was off and the first 4 bullets went into Brown's arm, then 2 to the head. But we'll have to wait until all the facts come out to really know what happened.

Shame on the Governor calling for a vigorous prosecution when he should be calling for a vigorous and thorough investigation.

Shame on Jesse Jackson for asking for donations to his church. So glad the crowd saw through him and booed him.

Shame on Al Sharpton. Shame on Eric Holder for saying he's there as AG, but also as a black man who knows what it's like to get pulled over! Justice is supposed to be blind! And white people get pulled over too!

Shame on Obama for inserting himself and his DOJ into this!

Racist lowlifes, all of them!

The sad thing is, that it is NOT the citizens of Ferguson who are committing the violence. Of those arrested for the violence, the vast minority are from Ferguson. There have been some from as far away as California, Texas, east coast. My prayers are with the good citizens of Ferguson.

Amen, Amen & Amen Charlie you are 200% correct on this one. If I live to be 100 years old I will never figure out the like of Al Sharpton, The Reverend,who has gone through at least two wives, his latest fling 20 some years younger than him. A Baptist minister who hates Jews. A Baptist minister who supports same sex marriage. Do you ever wonder why if the USA is so bad why he don't take the millions of dollars he has made off of poor black people and move to another country? God Bless Plowboy

Charlie, I agree with you 100%!! I understand peaceful protesting, there's nothing wrong with that, but when people start rioting, looting, etc., then it's gotten out of hand!! I feel for the family of Michael Brown. It's terrible that this had to happen, but like you, I don't know everything about what happened or the circumstances. The citizens of Ferguson need to stop all the violence. It solves nothing whatsoever!!
