It hurts when I pee
So If I hear something I don't like, It's ok to set businesses on fire, loot stores and cause massive mayhem ????????? $%^#ing thugs........
There's the problem. Far too many stopped thinking. Let alone thinking rationally. They don't want to be responsible for their own actions and that goes clear back to the 60's. They still want someone to feel sorry for them and give them "things". They have no pride anymore. Now not all are that way but then those that aren't stay silent which makes them no better in the long run. But call me racist. That will solve everything.Tobacco Road said:Wouldn't any rational thinking person be asking themselves what happened?
Kent State was not bad cops with the GOAL of mowing people down. Rather,it was some scared National Guardsmen that shot over the heads of the people who were trying to corner them, killing four downrange. Burning down university buildings at Kent State happened and that is when Gov, Rhoades brought in real guns and real bullets. The thing that escalated these protests into riots were outsiders from Chicago who played the students like pawns. Then the Chicago bunch went home only to emerge to positions of influence today.The black community picked the wrong martyr. Kid was a thug. His guilty conscience over his convenience store strong-arm robbery caused him to react improperly to the officer's approach and commands. The rest is history.
In so choosing, the black community LOST the support of most of white America, including yours truly.
I learned a long time ago innocent people of ANY color have VERY little to fear from cops --- UNLESS they're involved in an INITIALLY peaceful protest, like Occupy, Chicago 1968, Kent State, or any of the other anti-Vietnam war protests where bad cops went out with the GOAL of "busting heads."
