National Guard? Tanks? Fire hoses? Burning the building down? I don’t wish this. I practice and believe in non-violence.
But when authorities kill the innocent or execute those guilty of the pettiest of property crimes, this is what peaceful protesters face…No one cares if ‘Hands up don’t shoot’ or ‘I can’t breathe.’..in a country where the right to peacefully protest is guaranteed, as is the right to survive and have a fair trial.
Are there FBI plants breaking through barriers, inciting this situation to tip over? Unnecessary. It HAS tipped over. But no one used it as an excuse for public executions.
Public schools are closed! Townspeople are FURIOUS. Violent bullies upset over the effects of property laws have staged an unlawful armed takeover of an area that serves all. Closed it until further notice.
Take all the time you need, folks.
These bullies have stepped right past you and the legislative process and they have their own army.
Your anger is not being encouraged. The airwaves aren’t FILLED with fear-mongering about the violence spreading to other cities – even though THAT THREAT IS REAL. How about the inconvenience to the non-protesting citizens, the tax dollars wasted on this?
This is not brought to a speedy end. We are settling in.
You don’t have to explain why to me. I live here too.
I am trying to get you to notice two aspects.
1. Social engineering at work. How we perceive events in our world (or don’t) is managed and steered. Question where your attention is directed.
2. Why anyone who loves ALL people understands the reason that the slogan is BLACKlivesmatter.
For me to concern myself with the cause of these men, I would have to know that me and mine have the right to protest over not loss of land, but loss of life….and that our lives would be protected and our situation viewed in proper perspective – and not fear-of-a-black-planet perspective, either.
I am not even saying I disagree with how this is being handled. I just wish I could count on the same care being given to my concerns.
So, whose life do you NOT mess with?
Ah. We see. And who brings the real threat of a lawless society?
