The Gateway Pundit is a blog that emanates from the St. Louis area, and they had a post about the guy that was shot in Ferguson, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis. They posted some pictures of Michael Brown that his family released to the public:
One commenter who self-indentified as “angryblackman” replied to the posting and the commenters like this:
Yes. Brown attempted to take the gun from the police officer. The police officer overpowered Brown, fired a shot, and Brown attempted to run away. The police officer fired at Brown again while Brown was fleeing. Brown stopped and put his hands in the air. The police officer kept firing, ultimately hitting and killing Brown.
Again, Brown being a thug and the police officer’s unlawful use of force are two separate things. Yes, I do know that the police officer was reacting to the realization of the horrible outcome that would have occurred had Brown won the struggle for the gun instead of him, but the law is still the law.
I think he’s right. That scenario makes the most sense to me.
The moral of the story is, maybe, be nice to cops because you know they can be mean and unlawful and they’re the biggest gang in the country. Especially, don’t try to take the cop’s gun.
It’s like I’d tell anybody who proposes a foray into territory controlled by the Bloods, or the Crips, or MS-13, or some of the bad-ass tough white neighborhoods like the one I grew up in, west central St. Louis: Only do it under special circumstances. And avoid confrontations. Even Jesus Christ avoided direct provocation until close to the end when he was ready to fulfill his mission on Earth and blasted away at religious hypocrites in Matthew 23.
A police Lieutenant told me that once, long story.
Also, though, the moral for cops is that when you use brute force it only provokes the community even if your “suspect” is a really bad guy. It works like throwing drones all over the place to kill bad guys. They already know that such tactics have killed many, many innocent people, so the anger turns at the meddler, not the real bad guy.
Another moral is for black (AND white) ministers to stop yelling at white man and start telling men to man up and be good fathers to their children. Chuck Colson’s Prison Ministries does just that, but it trusts government money too much.
An unspoken truth here for blacks is that white citizens are getting the abuse too.
One more thing. A sensible policy on drugs like Ron Paul advocates would go a long way to removing gang membership incentives and giving peace a chance. The drug wars are killing us, many of us, and they are the worst thing for countries south of the border (and north of the southern border too!)
And the drug wars bring out one of the last and worst corners of racism too. (The cop in Ferguson would have shot a white guy all the same). Ron Paul said his first day as president in office he would pardon every non-violent drug offenders in the country. Best move for black folks.
Help them do business by killing the regulations and taxes that are murder for the ones trying to own their own business. The only reason there is such a demand for jobs is that government won’t let us compete with the big guys. Regulations are for the Mom and Pop and the black girl that knows Afro styles, not for Big Pharma, Big Agro, Big Media, Big Military-Industrial Complex. s
