“If you prick us, do we not bleed?
If you tickle us, do we not laugh?
If you poison us, do we not die?
And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?”
~Shakespeare(Shylock), The Merchant of Venice~
Folks that refuse to acknowledge the continued angst from victims of an increasingly rogue police state are only going to pour fuel on the fire of this foolishness. Police departments are just like the rest of society, they have great people, and they have assholes that think they are above the law.
This nonsense of believing that ALL of them are decent, and above reproach, is illogical. It’s as utterly ridiculous as referring to ALL protesters as “thugs” when MOST of them are peacefully assembling for a cause they believe in. Freddie Gray’s family and friends have begged for peace on the streets of Baltimore, but you would never know it because Massa Media wants to create a narrative of violence, looting etc.
They will show drunken college kids destroying their own property, as well as other people’s due to a football game…yet…the discussion rarely finds them labeled as “angry” “thuggish” or “animalistic.” I often hear how tired people are of this subject…imagine, if you will…for just a moment…how tired people are….that are tired of being tired. Try to remember that “All lives Matter” despite what Massa tells you.~Daryl~
