The Black Band

Last week was a tough one. Over 7 peace officers were killed on the line of duty. One was executed while pumping gas. What threatening manner did he present? Was he abusing his power? Was he thrashing people of a different race around? Was he shooting at people when he couldn’t gone hand-to-hand? No. He was pumping gas. Shot in the back of the head and fifteen more times. Clear sign of hate and rage. A Trooper in Louisiana stopped to assist what seemed like a motorist in need. What do you think ran through his mind? That he could possibly die? That the person was waiting to ambush him? Without even thinking he was going to assist someone who he thought was in need of assistance not knowing about the persons race, social class, or criminal history. Instead he got repaid with his life being taken with the last words he possibly heard was “You’re lucky you are going to die.” Here in Michigan I had to wear the black band on my badge for …

Just imagine a punk rock kiddo with black jeans and a rock band T-shirt and that’s me. We were all there at one point in our lives… So people have messaged me over and over going “OMG you got so hot since high school! …

In Other News…

In other news… Not a lot of attention has drawn on this. Reported (dated on the source August 9th, 2015) a Texas man executed 6 children in handcuffs (ages 6 to 13), executed his ex’s husband (father of the children), and killed his ex girlfriend last while she was restrained to the bed. All of the kids were executed in the master bedroom. But I guess that doesn’t draw national attention. Criminals caught in the act of committing a crime and disobeying law enforcement officials are heroes and considered innocent while actual real issues of violence barely see the light of day to the public. Prayers to those first responders and to the brothers and sisters in blue who had to come to that grim scene. And prayers out to the families that had true evil step into their lives. People have to realize its not the color of our skin that makes people evil or a criminal. It’s not the clothes or uniform they wear that makes people racist. Evil exists in all shapes, …
