There’s a good chance you’ve seen or heard about Lane’s sentencing hearing earlier today. His appearance, as well as his remorseless, cruel behavior towards his victims’ families throughout has gotten a lot of press, and be forewarned, is quite upsetting.
Sorry but honestly, we were discussing the current events in school today, and everyone agreed that that little line of “Land of the free and home of the brave” is the biggest load of bullshit, it’s lies and lies and lies. Your entire justice system is corrupt, your healthcare system is fucked up and honestly, now american citizens can’t even trust the people whom are there to protect and serve.
I know we are not better, I know we are just as fucked up (maybe not that much, since we have strict laws against carrying firearms) but this is not about that..
This is not about which country is better or anything, this is about how an entire nation is falling to pieces and we are seeing a clear repetition of history.
To shoot unarmed african/americans citizens just because you are a cop and can walk away from it, that is not why you swore your oath, that is not what your job description is about. YOU as a cop are supposed to protect the citizens and NOT, I repeat, NOT be the judge, jury and executioner, whether the person is innocent or a criminal, your job isn’t followed with the description “shoot whenever you feel like it” or “kill the person whenever you want, because let’s face it your a cop and you won’t be convicted for it anyways”, your job is to protect and serve! And that goes for ALL people whether skin color or religion.
I’m not an american citizen but I am a human being, I can distinguish right from wrong, and when I see a bunch of cops lining up in execution style to shoot down a mentally ill african/american man or shoot an unarmed boy in the back or kill a little boy for having a toy gun I know something is fucked up.
That is not justice, that is not doing your job as a cop, that is being a killer in any form whether your cop or civilian, you are a killer in a uniform hiding behind a badge.
The fact that american prison is overflowing with more POC is evidence enough that USA is a country that is reversing and becoming more and more what it once was and NOT a land of the free nor is it a home for the brave (putting bullets in people and yelling threats at them whenever they raise their voices against injustice is not bravery, that is creating fear).
Your country is broken, it has been for a very long time, when will the time for fixing it come?
My local news channel (in Fort Smith, Arkansas) posted on facebook the story of the Ohio school shooting. This erupted in people saying “IT’S BECAUSE YOU TOOK GOD OUT OF SCHOOLS”, “the devil shot those kids,” “PUT PRAYER BACK IN SCHOOL,” and “God is enough of a gentleman to quietly leave where he isn’t wanted.”
First of all, god wasn’t taken out of schools. That is evidenced by the countless religious groups at both my high school and college. I can’t walk to class without GOD being shoved in my face at every turn. I don’t understand how these people can act so oppressed. In high school they had “see you at the pole” meetings where people met up at the flag pole for prayer in the mornings before school. This took place in the courtyard where you had to hang out before school so while you didn’t have to participate you did have to stand around and watch it happen. People aren’t being prohibited from praying or reading their bibles at school. The schools just aren’t allowed to force people to pray or read bibles during school time. These same people would be furious if they even saw a muslim praying in a school.
And the devil didn’t shoot those kids because the devil is a boogeyman that you should have stopped believing in around the same time you stopped believing there were monsters under your bed. A disturbed person shot those kids. That’s the end of the story. There’s no supernatural force making people kill.
The bottom line is that if “God is gentlemanly enough to know when to quietly leave where he isn’t wanted,” I wish his followers would do the same.
Everytime i bring up ferguson with my dad he always says things like “well if theyre gonna loot and riot then the response by the police is absolutely justified”. seriously? hell i even told him about the 12 year old kid who shot in ohio today by the police. know what he says? “well he’s partially at fault. not entirely but he is to blame to an extent. his parents shouldve taught him better”. my god. for living in one of the most democratic states ive never personally met a more conservative man who is never willing to look at anything besides what presented to him through fox news and his jaded views on the world.
Pike County Shooting Update: $25,000 Reward Offered In Hunt For Suspect Who Killed Family Members Eight In Ohio
Audio from 911 calls released as Ohio authorities search for suspects in the execution-style killings of the Rhoden family
PEEBLES, Ohio — The voice of the young woman who found the first of
eight victims of execution-style killings in rural Ohio was breathless
and distraught as she told the 911 dispatcher of her grim
discovery: There was “blood all over the house” and the bodies of
her brother-in-law and a cousin looked as if someone “beat the hell out
The dramatic 911 calls that came in to the Pike County
Sheriff’s Office on Friday offered a chilling backdrop to the
shooting deaths of members of one family — the Rhodens — that have left
this small community 70 miles east of Cincinnati reeling.
initial frantic call, from a woman who identified herself as Bobby, came
in at 7:49 a.m. Friday and the second came in at 1:26 p.m., with the
discovery several miles away of the last of the eight bodies.
Im so mad at the media for not telling the rest of the story. Okay this dude had no right to shoot at these kids but they refuse to say what made him do it. I’m watching CNN and they talking about ways to stop school shootings but they are not getting to the real issue which likely bullying. This kid targeted these others why do you think that is? The media will not get down to the bottom of it and say but I hope that they will because something needs to happen. I feel for the young man and the kids that lost their lives or got hurt because it was preventable! The bullying has got to stop period! And the media needs to get that message out instead of dancing around it. I’m waiting for it to be revealed and maybe we will find out today when this young man goes to court. Maybe he had some issues or maybe it was something else either way the media needs to stop generalizing and making it seem as if he just woke up one day and wanted to kill those kids. Something else was the cause behind this. Parents wake up!! Media…you have to do better!!!
