AL SHARPTON YOU AIN’T NO MARTIN LUTHER KING


My teen years were during the 60s and the early 70s.   I remember the words of Martin Luther King during some of our nations most darkest periods.  Yes Dr. King spoke about issues of the day, particularly human rights and racial tension/war.  He spoke of prejudice , discrimination, the riots that came with it, the vandalism, the real lynchings, the church burnings, the no blacks or whites only signs, even the white sheets, the Black Panthers (I saw a march in Chicago down Main Street. by the Panthers, I was there for that one myself in 1969, however Dr. King was already gone before that one), the college sit-ins, the police station sit-ins, Biloxi and just about any city in Mississippi.

Young people today haven’t experienced anything today, except assaulting those on the other side that have a difference of opinion, that they don’t even try to understand; compared to what we witnessed.  Hell, I haven’t even mentioned the war I watched on TV every night for over for what seemed like an eternity (Vietnam).  Our news coverage didn’t mention car jacking or shootings; it was all about Vietnam.   I remember military jets flying over my grade school every 30 minutes just above the tree tops, for their bombing practice.  I remember the bombing drills we practiced in class, ducking under our desk.  I was in grade school, but this war carried on until I was in college.  I had a draft number (84), but I was fortunate enough that I had already enrolled in college before my 18th birthday, I was given a student deferment (the last one given in America by the way).  Those that were fortunate enough to survive Vietnam, advised me to take the deferment.  There is a long story there but for another day.

I’ve gotten off track a lot here, Dr. King, yes he spoke about the issues of the day, racism, and got political of course.  But what Dr. King NEVER left out was THE WORD OF GOD.  Dr. King would preach and teach.   I did not always agree with his politics, but his faith was evident.  I never hear Rev. Al Sharpton speak the word of God.   Maybe he does when he hops in a black church in a place such as Ferguson, Missouri when he can spread his racial divide.  Al Sharpton is an enabler.   Dr. King wanted peace.

Young people today think that voicing their political will, is punching out someone that has a different opinion; with a camera in your face.  Even with social media, they don’t understand the issues of the day.   We never fought those with different opinions we usually fought the government that didn’t inform us with the truth.  We also knew our sexual gender.

MIZZOU AND AL SHARPTON


Has there been an Al Sharpton sighting at Mizzou yet?   Would you be surprised?  Al Sharpton is an opportunistic race baiter.   If AL wants to make his wrinkly old body feel the spirit of youth again, he is probably somewhere down I-70 headed to Columbia, MO.

However, Al, the student protesters, mostly black, seem to be doing well, they have taken over the campus and pretty much run the institution now; something you have never accomplished.   Al, you are out dated!

LAWYERS FOR MICHAEL BROWN’ PARENTS FILING LAWSUIT AGAINST FERGUSON


According to Fox4KC.com lawyers for the parents of Michael Brown will be filing a civil lawsuit against Ferguson today.   The wrongful death lawsuit will be filed on behalf of Brown’s mother Lesley McSpadden and his father Michael Brown Sr.

In case you’ve been in a coma for the past nine months, this is the Michael Brown that robbed a convenience store, bullied the store clerk around, jumped a police officer through his car, tried to take the officer’s gun, was shot during the struggle, ran, then turned around and charged the officer again and was killed by the officer in self-defense and defense of the community.   Then friends and outsiders for months claimed this 6’3″ nearly 300 pound 18-year-old was murdered surrendering with hands held high.   All of this turned out to be total lies by autopsy/coroner evidence.   But yet this summer long fiasco was a wrongful death caused by a police officer doing his job, protecting the community?

Who should be filing a lawsuit?  Outside of a bully that made stupid decisions that warm August day last year and was killed over it, Darren Wilson, the officer has suffered the most.   Darren Wilson should file suit, but who would he file suit against?  He wouldn’t file against Brown’s parents.  Nothing to gain there.  May be he files suit against Al Sharpton, Eric Holder and Barack Obama, the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Governor Jay Nixon

These lawyers for McSpadden and Brown Sr. know they have no case.   That case has been lost a number of times already.    They are headline seekers, using McSpadden and Brown.   They all seem to crave the attention.   Al Sharpton has taught them well.

WAS THERE HATE CRIME ON THE ST. LOUIS METRO?


Metrolink screengrab

A man was beaten on March 23 on the St. Louis Metro Link train.

“What do you think of the cop killing Michael Brown situation?”    The St. Louis (where else) Metro Link rider didn’t give the politically correct answer, then got beat-up.  With that question or statement, depending on how you look at it, and that the victim was white and the two attackers were black, wasn’t enough to be determined a hate crime.  So just what does it take to be considered a hate crime?

The 43-year-old male was seated on the Metro, three young black males were standing nearby.   The 15-year-old ask the man if he could use his cell phone; he was told no.   Then the kid ask the man what he thought of the police killing Michael Brown and the investigation situation.  The seated man said something to the effect “I haven’t given it much thought”.   The kid suddenly turned into a 15-year-old punk……he proceeded to slug a seated man in somewhat of a defenseless position.   A 21-year-old companion also punched and kicked at the passenger.   A third companion of the two attackers stood by and just watched.  When the train came to its next stop, the three ran off, like the cowards they are.

Was it a hate crime?  I don’t know in the context that hate crimes are meant.   I mean hate crime, isn’t that really the same as racial or religious and ethnic hate (bias motivated crime)?    If this man was beaten because of his view or non-view of the Michael Brown stage, race is definitely involved.   Much of what occurred in Ferguson last Summer was about race, right Al Sharpton, right Holder and yes Obama?   Hate crime charges will not be filed.   The 21-year-old has been charged, with assault, the 15-year-old was turned over to juvenile authorities.

Did the 15-year-old bait his victim, test him?   Asking to use his cell phone, was it to see if the man would stand-up to him by saying no, or just give it up.   Was it a test to see how friendly the man was?  I don’t think in this case it was.   To followup with the question of Michael Brown, the kid wanted an answer to instigate trouble,   possibly to see if the man had nerve to say what he really thought.   His answer was middle ground to avoid a confrontation.   The passenger thought he was playing it safe.   The kid found someone passive he could pound on and beat.   That was obvious, the man didn’t fight back, only slightly raised his arm as a shield to protect his head.   He was in a seated position and he was out numbered.   No one, not one individual gave him any assistance.

Hate crime is a separate charge all of its own and can be complicated.   The definition of hate crime can vary from state to state.     The act of beating someone can be a hateful act, and does not need to be motivated by bias.  The phrase “hate crime” is a poorly selected title.   Like I said earlier, it is meant to be a bias motivated crime; but it doesn’t have to be.    Some hateful people hate everyone, no bias there, they hate everyone.   A man can kill his father-in-law out of pure hate.   They don’t charge him with hate crime, they charge him with murder.

Hate crime, one of those poorly selected phrases to get it politically correct.    Assault is assault, rape is rape, arson is arson.  I have no problem with additional charges brought against someone for killing a man because he was black or white or Jewish……whatever.   Why not call it a “Biasly Motivated Crime”.    Hate crime can get complicated, and with legality issues someone could get off, escape the charge.   Bias motivated, more to the point.   Hate and bias have a lot in common, but there can be differences.

One more point I would like to make, the 43-year-old turned the other cheek.   Maybe he’s a better man than me, but he could use a lesson in self-defense.   I know he shielded himself, but I can’t see myself in that same situation remaining seated.   It would have been a war.   That is what cowards do though, prey on a weak and sometimes a person in a defenseless position.
