While my heart goes out to all involved in the Dallas Police shootings and also the other side; victims of what we would call Police brutality. It’s concerning me greatly, exactly where this is going, what’s going to happen and where these things come from. It seems in 2016, nobody can get along, everything is magnified and truths are hard to come by. With increasing violence, unrest and evil on the rise who can blame most people for burying their heads in the sand? While a few still have the attitude of taking no notice, they need to realise that this won’t be a choice they can take for much longer.
The world was astounded by two brutal Police killings of two innocent black men this week, one in Minnesota, which seemed completely avoidable. The officer in question saw no evidence of a gun, but presumed the suspect was reaching for one, so the officer shot and killed him,the victim’s girlfriend seemed to calmly video the whole thing while apparently, her young child was also in the back of the car. The other fatal shooting in Louisiana was another seemingly innocent guy, who unbelievably, used to frequently sit outside the very shop he was killed outside of, selling cd’s to make extra cash. By this, it seems highly unlikely he would be out there causing trouble. The two officers had this guy on the ground, restrained and he still got shot and killed. It begs the question “Does this seem like standard practice?” Now, the “Inevitable?” revenge killings in Dallas? I put a question mark there for a reason.
These happenings are outlandish,outlandish,outlandish to say the least. Can this be really happening? If it is, it’s because people have let it get this way! My only other option on this, is that it’s fake and it’s all being done for a reason. Even though I understand that things have a tendency to change, I simply cannot believe that people actually and genuinely feel this way about whole groups of people, judging from a few examples. How much further out of control is this stuff gonna get? We need to stand up like men, communicate and stop just killing each other. Most of us already have it hard enough, what with the governments breathing down our neck most of the time, we need to make situations better with understanding. Unless it comes to those who can’t be reasoned with. However, what ever the circumstances, let’s not all kill each other, that’s not getting us anywhere.
