As I’ve said a few times now – the police are finally being looked at, questioned, and having to take some responsibility. Unfortunately that is on the shoulders, and necks, of many innocent people. And I want to mention here that saying someone is ‘innocent’ doesn’t mean the person is not guilty of anything. We, as adults, are all guilty of many things, some of them illegal, some of them immoral, some of them antisocial…
True ‘innocence’ is reserved for children. They do not always know right from wrong, and have therefore never chosen a path that our society has dictated as ‘wrong’. But as they grow, they do make mistakes. They become increasingly less innocent. That’s how children learn. In a very real way we are all on the spectrum between ‘innocent’ and ‘worldly’. We are all, as adults, somewhere in the gray area.
It’s amazing how many people still want to see things in black and white, on and off, good or bad, weak or strong,…. can’t we just stop all that?!?!?
We are ALL HUMAN. No one is all of one characteristic and none of the opposite. What is this need to categorize, label, judge? Is it that we are all so insecure that we need to put others down? Feel superior? Be ‘right’?
So this is the next witch hunt….right now it’s not minorities, gays, communists…right now the biggest news is ‘Bad cops’. They are suddenly everywhere. Suit after suit is being filed. Immunities are being rescinded. Laws are being changed. Motives and drive are being scrutinized…. Right now it’s a bad time to be a dirty cop.
But even though you dirty cops came after my son, stole him from me, stole the sons in our communities, our country. Shaking my belief in justice, in the United States, to the core. No, I’m not talking about good cops who may occasionally make a mistake (we love you Jason), I’m talking about the kind of guy above who put hundreds of innocent men in prison. Even though you didn’t care if you arrested innocent men, lied, destroyed evidence, perjured yourselves. I care. We care. I will do a happy dance when you fall. And I will not need to play dirty to see it happen.
Watch out for us. Chauvin will be found guilty, and that’s just the start.
