I get the impression that the recent media fiasco with Zimmerman and Trayvon has only fueled new and pre-existing fires of doubt,anger,suspicion and
of course racism in a lot of people....That is the main issue and complaint I have had personally with that case,The media botched that one,as usual
for ratings...whatever gets hits,no matter the consequences.
You could say that both parties involved here,It could go anyway,the security guard/cop and the teens,were both in the wrong depending on your point
The teens should not of been "loitering", filming outside of an establishment that states rules against it,filming the guard...Some have said possibly
baiting him to retaliate.
The teens were speaking politely and remaining calm...Some of the places that I have lived,In Philadelphia for instance...The kind of places you would
be considered extremely lucky to have any kind of respect like what those boys showed that cop.
The "Cop" over reacted and overstepped his boundaries by lashing out the way he did....One thing I found curious was why he insistently asked for
their I.D.'s ...he goes "your filming me,I want to know who you are" something along those lines...almost as if he was paranoid/had something to hide?
I am sure that I am probably over analyzing things but never the less I found that a bit odd.
End of story no matter if the guy was a security guard or a legitimate police officer he should of never acted the way he did,it was wrong,cut and
Are things getting so bad lately with rumors of war,Unemployment,Media hyped disinfo,racial profiling,A bad economy,Raising food & Gas prices
straining working America and worldwide alike,that everyone is a tad on edge...Something in the air???
