Hey Goody Two Shoes, Why Should I Care About Michael Brown?

 

I don’t give a darn that Michael Brown was shot in Ferguson, Missouri.  I don’t even know Michael Brown.  When President Kennedy was shot I was sixteen and I didn’t care about him while all the little boys and girls at Great Neck North High School cried.

 

And all those morons running around the streets of Ferguson causing trouble don’t know Michael Brown any better than I do.  They haven’t earned the right to speak up for him.  They are stupid voices in an empty wind.

 

I know that all you little wet hankies think that you are better than me.  Maybe you are?  Maybe you do nothing for humanity?  Maybe you are part of a mob running around hitting people with baseball bats of self-justification.

 

A person in the streets was shot because of Michael.  I care more about that than Michael.  He might have even been innocent.  He hadn’t stolen a bunch of cigars from a convenience store and roughed up a clerk.  He was probably a better human being than Michael.

 

The cops used tear gas to try to save the wounded person.  No appreciation from the protestors who were more interested in trouble than justice.

 

Brown’s stealing from a convenience store had little to do with his being shot.  But it did show the type of person that he was and round out the picture of him.

 

The rabble used the showing of Ferguson’s video to work themselves up into a lather of anger.  Stupid minds looking for negative motivations.

 

There’s not a clue that bigotry was involved in Brown’s case.  Yet all the bigots blame the incident on white hatred of blacks. Don’t they have get tired of the same old trumped up story.

 

If Martin Luther King were there he would have been furious at the reverse racism.  He would have felt that the color of their skin had become a cliché for the failure of their character. He would have looked at Al Sharpton and cried that his ideas had been so twisted.

 

The rabble chanted, "No justice! No curfew!"  As if the mob was a jury that hadn’t been sworn in, a conclusion without evidence.

 

The mob who mostly didn’t know Mike Brown shouted, "We ready. We ready. We ready for y'all…. We are Mike Brown."

 

Right.  And I am President John F. Kennedy.

 

The police put on gas masks and told the crowd to disperse.  Like spoiled children they said, "We have the right to assemble peacefully."

 

I’d say that they had no rights.  Brown is not their brother or son.  He is nobody to them.  And they were not assembling peacefully.  They were malicious as can be seen by the looting and the shooting.

Have any of you gone into the ghettos after dark - it is so dangerous that the people bar the windows and doors virtually living inside a self imposed Jail sentence for all night. I can tell you that I have been driving though Watts where friends have had their cars shot in the day time.

In most ghettos there are several murders each week, some like LA, Detroit and Chicago is has been several each night - shootings are common. In San Diego I had Asian employees living in the ghetto that went to bed to gun fire sounds every night.

So, If you were a police officer what would be your actions when entering these full out crime zones? Where are the Preachers at night - oh locked in the church behind bars huh?

Jesse Ray:  My comment is based on FACT.  I don't think you had learned higher order thinking skills in school.

The autopsy showed marijuana use.  The convenience store video shows Martin robbing the place and physically intimidating the store clerk. Punk and thug are apt descriptions.  So is thief. 

A grand jury has been formed.  That's how we start to get to the bottom of cases like this.  Let see how our system of justice works.

Hey Richard Eugene Thorton...I guess you was an eye witness to this tragic incident? The authorities have interviewed scores of witnesses. Let's see what they discover. You are in no position to make declarations that he was just a "thug." Let's see in a few weeks what happens. OK?

Good morning Frank Chance Chenoweth... I hear you. I can understand how you feel given the blessings you received with your son. He is also blessed to have a father like you. Wish there were more like you. But sadly, there isn't. That is why so many young, poor, uneducated young women go for abortions, I think. It is hard to tell a woman to risk having a birth if she can barely sustain herself or even keep her life on some kind of even keel. No disrespect to your son's biological mother, but her lack of knowledge about her baby's father is an illustration of this problem.
Good luck with your son and family. Thank you for discussing this very important issue with me. I learned something and enjoyed it. Too many people dismissed charges of racism because they do not really understand or experience it. You know now how it can warp and destroy an innocent person's life. Take care friend.

Jesse Ray,

     I think "angry" and "pissed off" better describe my feelings when this happened.  I had also heard other allegations of hidden racism in Mundelein, so my antennae were up when my son started having these issues. 

     As I said, my son is biracial.  His bkiological mothetr--who we still are in contact with--is of Italian, Greek, and Romanian descent.  The father was either African-American or Puerto Rican.  She is not sure which, but we tend to think, based on C.J.'s complexion and hair, etc., that his biological dad was the Puerto Rican.  His mother almost aborted him.  Luckily, there were protesters at the clinic in Chicago.  She changed her mind, slept on it, and put him up for adoption at birth. 

     This has, naturally, led to me being extremely pro-Life.  Many conservatives and Republicans argue that we should not get hung up on social issues, but I could never vote for any candidate who was pro-Choice.  That is a deal breaker for me.  Thinking of that wonderful, smiling boy who is my son being aborted brings tears to my eyes--it would have truly been a crime had the world been denied his presence.  He is truly a blessing.

I agree that everyone is a sinner and also I am.  BUT, Brown was a thug, who assaulted an officer of the law and now Missouri is a better place to live because he is no longer a threat to that society.  The fact that he was black does in no way effect what happened to him, he attacked an officer, TWICE!  He got killed for it in a justified shooting.  He could have been Asian, Caucasian, or black and the outcome would have been the same!  A thug bit the dust and it was a good thing!  A criminal and potential killer is not longer a threat to society!

Just look at the protestors. Most are from out of town and really have no say in this event. They are a bunch of race baiter's who just want to stir up problems when the real problem is the thugs like "Gentle Mike" messing with drugs and just being a general nuisance in  their own neighborhood. Until someone starts telling these people to start taking responsibility for their own actions their situation will never improve. This protester thug who claims to have been a St. Louis policeman for 10 years is nothing more than a disgruntled ex cop and very likely a plant..
