That is inherent beauty of it all! We all have our opinions on any given matter, we were entitled to our very own thoughts and viewpoints! If only we
could discuss all of them in a civil manner. There is no need to attack someone for their opinion. I do feel that this mom was wrong in turning on the
other lady, they both should have walked away.
Yes, I also feel that it's very hypocritical. We are exposed to offensive material constantly, it is how we deal with that. When a disgusting horror
movie commercial shows while I'm watching tv with my kids, I shut it off rather than call and yell at the person responsible. That police officer
could have been taking a drunk driver off the road, or responding to a real domestic violence call or any one of a hundred more productive things to
help a community. It was blown up way out of proportion like so very many more pressing issues. The ability to step back and see all sides seems to
be lacking anymore, myself included. I had a knee jerk response to this this morning. I just don't get why she was arrested, maybe the article
should have included more info. I assume she said something to the officer as well, but that enters on dangerous territory. We should assume nothing,
and that is difficult at times.
None of us are ever going to know the whole story in any of these instances, everything is skewed by our personal perception of any given situation.
The more people who get involved the more skewed things become. I only hope we recognize that before it destroys us.
And Char-Lee, I apologize on behalf of all the potty mouths of the world. I make no excuses for my terrible habit, I only thank you for your patience!
And I was speaking about the article not that you attacked anyone, just for clarification purposes, it sounded bad when I read that back.
