People Are Police, Too

Those entrusted to enforce the Law are Human

A Lot of Times ‘we’ seem to Forget this.

Trust Me, I’m no gushing Fan of excessive Police Force; And, I’m no Angel in terms of past dealings with Law Enforcement.

Yet, with the Sad, Sickening State of Affairs we seem to find ourselves in #Merica today, I feel Kinda obligated to say this ~ Stop Shooting the Police ~

And, Start Helping Law Enforcement find those who would.

For example ~ Let’s Just Take the Past 12 months ~ and, in that time frame ~ have you ever in your Life seen the mayhem and crazy that seemingly was ignited the day Michael Brown was shot.

It’s Non-Stop. Turn on CNN. Fox. MSNBC. Read A Paper. Talk to your spouse significant other; your Kids. Because, for the Life of Me (that’s 55 years if you’re counting) ~ Never Have I Witnessed Events so Out of Control it’s mind numbing ~ mind boggling ~ and Wak on an undesirable Level.

And, those who know me, know I certainly can’t be colored a Doomsday-ist ~ End of Time guy. But, My God. When will the killing end.?

Who does it end with? Where Does it start to begin to end?

Do you have any Answers; suggestion; ideas of Plans of Action that may be deemed worthy of utilizing to calm the constant shooting; bleeding; dying and hurting.

Some may question my motive for writing such A Narrative. So What, I would say to that.

For the record, I’ve been open about my past indiscretions. I hope you are, as well, when criticizing this column and the motivations behind such.

I don’t care.

We’ve reached A Point in this Country ~ where it’s impossible to Speak Your Mind for Fear of Offending.

Enough.

I got kids and so do you. And, they don’t need to live out their Lives in the way in which Our Society is Headed. Do they?

Didn’t think so.

So, what can #Merica do to change course? Seriously. What will it take for normal, everyday People to get fed up with the craziness.

I’ve known Robert Hearnes since my High School Days. He’s the Director of the Charleston Department of Public Safety. A Fine Man.

We disagree 99% of the Time. On, almost Everything. In fact, he says it’s Black ~ I say it’s White.

And, we argue; discuss and debate ~ infrequently ~ but do so enough that I know he’s informed; he cares and he’s concerned for the Men and Women who work under him.

Really, for All Law Enforcement personnel. He is the Chief of a Small, Rural ~ sometimes Violent ~ area of the Earth. He does the best anyone can expect him to do.

What? You expect him to stop the senseless shootings in Charleston all by himself. You think he’s the reason why witnesses won’t testify; prosecutors can’t – or won’t – or, more to the point ~ literally unable to prosecute.

Blame the Judges? For what. Being Compassionate enough not to throw away the key on every criminal because they can.

Again, I’m waiting if you have any answers.

There is A Comments section below. Feel Free to Fire Away.

Just, not with Bullets.

While I sit in the comfort of my Home watching the Cardinals on TV, this Man is worried about his officers on the street on another Steamy Night in September ~ #Merica.
