First, you cry and moan about an innocent young black boy getting executed by a white cop.<quoted text>
....most importantly, I am appalled at the people who think “the thug got what he deserved.” And that has been a common sentiment of more than one person driving around with an ichthys on the back of their car. I am appalled at the people who view this situation in terms of winners and losers: of arguments, of laws, of politics, etc. There are no winners here. There’s a dead eighteen year old, a community torn up, an injured policeman, and a hell of a lot of division upon which the usual vultures will feast.
But there are no winners.
Ferguson, MO is about 650 miles from where I am and they are my neighbors. They are American citizens. They are families. And because of a tragedy they find themselves at the center of a national political conversation where there are now sides trying to win an argument and a fight. I am not sure what the victory will be. But damned if it won’t be politicized.
After the jury rendered its verdict in the George Zimmerman trial, I wrote “There are no sides but Justice to root for, but a Justice that will leave one side unsatisfied and still empty. Both sides made mistakes in this awful mess.” It is true in Ferguson, MO too.
that is not a left wing site.
Now that a few days have past and more details come out about what a loser Fat Boy Brown was, you can't bring yourself to admit you were wrong to cheer on the black racists of Ferguson and the Oval Office.
Instead, you're going to mix this all up to give us a "nobody wins" bullshit.
OK. Now go away, boy:-)
