What do you think, feel and what would you like to Do with it:?: http://www.philly.com/philly/news/b...ed_or_disciplined_after_televised_beatin.html When I look and listen to the FACTS of this case, I THINK...."Seems it's open season...", "This is some straight up bull pokey". Both of those thoughts signal ACTS OF INJUSTICE and I FEEL ..appropriately Angry. I also THINK..."WE (Afreekan amerikkkans) just experienced a LOSS of having JUSTICE in this shytuation, those B.A.D. (Brother's of Afreekan Descent who were treated BADly)..LOSS in that their sense of SAFETY in Law Protection Agents, Integrity(? not sure this is best descriptor) in the cops being declared "JUSTIFIED" in what they did ...I FEEL is the accompanying Sadness....I also THINK ..."Is it open season on us" and I recognize the potential clear and present Danger...and I FEEL fear. I think ...."These mofo's out they mind"..and..."Are WE Ready":?: That would be a dangerous, even deadly outcome. First step is to GET TO SAFETY...which for US limited options seem to be available. I learned it was important to ASK FOR HELP when seeking SAFETY. I learned this while as a patient in this budding program by this Dr. and based on this model....*way back when...then....the rest was MYStory... Cherryblossom, I don't know where those 1,000 (?) men are, yet, those Brothers could probably use their support right about now. Also, regarding RACISM AND TRAUMA...THIS would be a more ACCURATE example. It's BIGGER than any ONE PERSON'S individual experience. Think of Rodney King, and the countless others who have also experienced the same acts of INJUSTICE,....all across this great nation. [this is not directed at you CherryB] Just so happens, and I can't help yet say it, that it is a nation ALSO founded on being good Christians. The ties and connections to the WORDS (of which thoughts are formed) are just a bit too deep for me to call myself one. Nor do I desire to dig into that story and uncover truth when I already have it...for.. M.E.
