Old saying, everyone has an opinion and an anus, and both smell. That said my opinion on the Ferguson, MO fiasco.
A poorly trained and maybe unqualified police officer from a poorly run police department meets a stoner thug, and the thug dies. Perhaps the best summation of the Ferguson, MO fiasco I’ve read is by Peter Grant.
Then I read stuff on Facebook, posted by liberals, that makes me wonder if we live in alternate universes. This takes time to read, but the absolute blindness to facts, and the editorial slant, boggles my mind.
This type of thinking only obscures the basic problem. In St. Louis County, the citizens are living with a corrupt set of self serving local governments that are all about money, and not about public safety or service. Most of the county is a “ticket trap” according to friends that have lived there, and articles posted in Peter’s blog. I sympathize with the frustration and anger of the people who live there. So, how do you change a corrupt system? Not by the thinking displayed by this liberal. That obscures the role of corrupt officials and gives excuses for thugs.
Looking at history, a lot of changes have come about by people using pitchforks and torches, just saying. 4G warfare, anyone?
