Segregated day and time?

do you trust the Police?

do you feel George Floyd should be in the school History books?

what did his murder on Tv tell you about America

and how far things still needed to go??

    I believe there are people who sincerely pursue and attain their position of authority, however armed, to help their fellow human beings. But I also believe that too many law-enforcers — be they private-property security, community police, prison guards or heavily-armed rapid-response police units — have targeted/acquired such authoritative fields of employment for power-trip reasons (albeit perhaps subconsciously). It’s a profession in which they might get to, for example, storm into suspects’ homes, screaming, with fully-automatic machineguns or handguns drawn, at the homes’ occupants (to “face down!”), all of whom, including infants, can be permanently traumatized from the experience.

    On some occasions, these ‘law-enforcers’ force their way into the wrong home, altogether. That’s potentially when open-fire can and does occur, followed by wrongful deaths to be “impartially” investigated. Those that do get into such a profession of (potential or actual) physical authority might do some honest soul-searching as to truly why. I believe I would. Problematically, there may be many people who are in such an armed authority capacity that were reared with an irrational distrust or baseless dislike of people of other races.

    • Bottom line George Floyd was lynched as have millions of black people in America

        Also, I’ve noticed (after 3.5 decades or so of news consumption) that a significant number of people, however precious their lives, can be considered disposable, even to an otherwise democratic nation. When the young children of those people take notice of this, tragically, they’re vulnerable to begin perceiving themselves as disposable thus without value. When I say this, I primarily have in mind Black Americans (and Canadians, though maybe to a lesser degree). But I know it happens worldwide.

        To me, it’s like a devaluation, albeit perhaps a subconscious one, of the daily civilian lives lost (“casualties”) in protractedly devastating war zones and sieges. They can eventually receive meagre column inches on the back page in the First World’s daily news (to which newspaper owners might say: “It’s just the news business, nothing personal”). …

        I hope I’m explaining my thoughts clearly enough.
