Citizens do not Confront Power unless Abuse of Power has Provoked the Confrontation.
How can there be any doubt left, America has seen so much violence from our Authorities.
I could not believe the composure and empathy shown by brave young Cameron Sterling, son of the murdered Alton Sterling. A fine young man teaching us that it is only a few cops that are bad, it simply isn't all cops. That those people in Dallas did not deserve what happened to them..
My God what a Soul....Sterling is such an appropriate name for the young Man.
I would also bring additional relevant points to bear.
With our society being what it is, how the ranks of our forces are made up, many of our Police suffer from Concussion, PTSD, Steroidal Frenzy, and just plain Mental Pathologies and Personality Disorders.
Look at the physical and mental affects of the above elements, and then look how our ranks are formed, look how we recruit, look at our pool of prospective officers. These men are not even screened effectively for these affects. If fact, behavior that displays the trauma is often times lauded and solicited.
This is fundamental group pathology on display, influencing individual’s decision-making processes, causing a shared pathology that is escalating before our eyes.
We need the American Psychological Association studying this not torture.
And once more the ACLU is doing our heavy lifting.
