Like the case at hand here. If that cop shot a guy on cuffs on the ground, and I drew my weapon and shot the cop, it would seem to be appropriate
wouldn't it? As a matter of fact, the other cops should have done that very thing. No trial, no riots, no expense, just justice served.
An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind friend. This is exactly what we don't want. There are other ways to protest and to make your voice and
opinion not only heard but recognized.
I agree....for now....for a little while more. The problem is the earlier part of that post. I only see two ways to make an impact on our lives. 1.
We have to fight the nameless, faceless, corporations, politicians, and digital entities from within. We have to get ourselves into government and
into power and begin fixing things. OR 2. We have to handle these things directly, immediately, on site, and with decisive irreversible action.
If we don't do either one of those things, then we continue to be taken advantage of. I am a big fan of #1, but we seem to be losing that battle.
At some point #2 becomes the only option left.
I think about if I were personally involved in one of these tragedies. Sitting from afar, it is a tragedy and I wonder why nobody does anything about
it, but what if I wasn't sitting from afar? What if that was my son? I can guarantee you with 100% certainty that Justice would be served.
You wanna know why my wife is careful to lock her car doors, and doesn't talk to strangers at Wal Mart very much anymore? It isn't because she is
scared of getting hurt, or because she is unfriendly, it is because she is afraid that at some point something bad will happen to her or the kids, and
the WORLD WILL CHANGE as a result!! She knows that my family is the only thing that keeps me sane, and that her safety is important for the safety of
EVERYONE!! I can sit idly by and be sad and appalled at the terrible things that happen to strangers, but please God, don't let it happen to any of
my family, because that will be the beginning of the end!
I know that I am not some superhero, and I know that I am not unique. There are many more like me out there. Wolves in sheeps clothing, trying to
meld into society and keep our carnal urges within the bounds of man's law, and keep our id buried beneath our civility. The government, TPTB, the
Gangs, the 2-bit hoodlums, they are safe picking on the sheep, but if they accidently bite too many of the wolves, it will become a game-changer!
Support your Tea Party, do everything in your power to make Option #1 work, because Option #2 is ugly, and you sir are very correct, an eye for an eye
leaves the whole world blind, but if you happen to be the grieving father or husband of an innocent victim, leaving the whole world blind might just
be the beginning!
