How are you liking 2021 so far? Does it feel good to be “woke.” If you’re like me then you are fed up with all of this shit. A couple of days ago a sixteen year old girl that was trying to kill another teenager was shot dead by a Columbus police officer that was responding to the 911 call. The officer was white while the teenage hooligan wielding a deadly weapon was black. Once again this has become a race issue instead of a behavior issue. The mother of the deceased girl says she “wants answers” why her “peaceful child is no longer with us. What the hell is wrong with people? Have we all forgotten the lesson we learned as a baby where we put our hand on a stove and figured out the meaning of “hot?” Has this new generation of social terrorists suddenly fallen susceptible to early dementia? You are never gonna end up with the key to the city if you decide to resist arrest.
You would think the White House would have the common sense to diffuse the situation but this administration does not want us to get along. Instead they fueled the chaos by calling the shooting “tragic.” Tragic? This girl wasn’t pulled out out of her house, tortured, beaten and shot she was trying to kill another human being and because of HER actions she will not be playing badminton at the family cookout this Memorial Day. That isn’t “tragic” but it was very much “preventable” and the officer was just doing his job. You may assume I am a staunch supporter of the men and women in blue but that is not accurate. I am a Libertarian and I avoid the police at all costs. I prefer to take care of my own business and safety. The few times I have made a call to the police it did not turn out as I had hoped. I suggest that you do everything you can to avoid being in their presence. If you do end up in a situation where you have to interact with law enforcement let me offer some pointers on how to make sure that you do not suddenly assume room temperature.
Cops make mistakes. They are humans. Innocent people do get arrested. If you find yourself in the presence of law enforcement and they tell you to do something it’s not a debate. Know the room. You are not in a position of “strength.” This is NOT the time for you to prove a point or make a statement. Shut your mouth. The more you resist then the more the situation is gonna escalate. Escalation is not a good thing. If you say nothing you will be inconvenienced but you’ll be able to walk out to the mailbox the next morning. You hire an attorney and you will have your day in court. That’s how the process has been set up and that is how the process works. Trust me…..you don’t want to be involved in “the process.” It never seems to end and it becomes quite expensive. Don’t break the law. If you don’t want people with badges inside your personal space don’t give them a reason to confront you. How did we all become so confused? What is it that no one can seem to grasp? Let’s stop pointing the finger of blame at others. You are not the “victim” when you choose to break the law. Let’s try following the law and I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the outcome.
