Isn’t Hell where people go who are Racist towards another group based on their skin color, when they “profile” and use words like “Cracker” to describe another race who has different color skin?
Isn’t Hell where people go who walk around in a dazed drugged stupor, thinking the laws of the land do not apply them?
Isn’t Hell where people go instead of going home, circle back and lay in waiting to attack another human being?
For those of you living under a rock these last 6 weeks and year for that matter, there has been a Criminal Trial happening in the US state of Florida. In a nut shell, the trial was about a 17 year old “youth” being shot by a Community Watch leader in a neighborhood residential townhouse complex. The evidence in the trial showed that the community watch leader thought the youth was acting strangely and “up to no good” due to a recent rash of burglaries in the same neighborhood. The community watch leader called his local police to come and investigate but in the meantime got out of his car to see where the youth was going. Not too long after, the youth circled back, confronted and attacked the community watch leader and was shot in the scuffle that followed. From all appearances it seems the youth was the aggressor of the attack.
No-one will ever know all the exact details of the encounter but we do know enough to come to a logical conclusion that the youth was the person mostly in fault. There were significant injuries to the community watch leaders back of his head where it appears it was being bashed into the cement sidewalk. No injuries, other than the bullet wound were found on the youth. Witnesses say they saw the youth on top of the smaller community watch leader. The jury decided after a 2 week trial that the community leader was NOT GUILTY.
Now that you are up to speed, this brings us to the aftermath. I’d say that about 65% of the people in the US don’t understand the verdict. Which seems to be about the same % who voted for Obama coincidentally! They are calling for “Justice For Trayvon”. Those that are upset by the verdict don’t understand how an unarmed “child” can be killed. Many of those who are upset are blaming this on race. Claiming that Black people in the US don’t count and do not get “Justice”.
There are several problems with the reaction to this event in US History. And I believe it is a culturally important historical event in the United States, in that it will effect people of the black race to feel “lesser”, “not counted”, “the system doesn’t protect us”, “a step backwards to equality”. Just for the perception that Justice was not served based solely on race.
The problem with the aftermath reaction is it’s mostly based on false facts of the case.
1.) The news media has been spun like puppets by civil rights activists from day one of this whole thing to further their civil rights agendas. The parents of the youth hired civil rights attorneys to represent them and everything out of their mouths has been biased and misleading of the real facts of what happened.
2.) The President (our first half black President), jumped on the bandwagon giving sympathy and justification to the false narrative being spewed by the news media being manipulated by the civil rights groups.
3.) Many of those who show dismay about the Not Guilty verdict are basing their outrage mostly on being Politically Correct towards their “peers” versus actually knowing the facts of the case. It is “cool” to be outraged. It is the fashionable thing to say that you are for a black youth. It is Politically Correct to be for “children”. It is Politically Correct to be for a minority race and especially the black race. It is Politically Correct to be Politically Correct. I’d venture to say that a large portion of the “outraged” know more about what the Kardashians did on last weeks episode versus the facts of the case. Give them a few hours and what’s for lunch will their latest most important thing in life.
What does this say about our society? It says that nothing has changed in the last thousand years and we live in a pasture of SHEEP! It says that we live in a society where Money and Power will always trump the truth. It says about our society that if there is an opportunity for “bad people” to twist the truth for their own advancement, they will do it! It says that most people in the US have their thoughts and life beliefs mostly formed by the media. And the media will always follow the money. If there is money to be made by exploiting a situation and tweaking the facts of what happened to match Political Correctness, the media will most certainly throw an innocent community watch leader in jail for the rest of his life without even batting an eyelash.
What proved out to be nothing more than a simple “Self-Defense” was overcharged by the Florida Prosecutors from the very beginning which play a large roll in the blame game of “what went wrong” with this whole thing. The local police did not want to charge the community watch leader due to lack of evidence that a crime was committed. They said it was self-defense and all the evidence in the case seem to agree with their initial findings. But all the Civil Rights groups had at that time worked the general public up into a frenzy by their false portrayal of the facts which were more than happily repeated by the media. For example, most people in the general public think the “youth” was a child. A 12 year old black child on his way home with skittles and a soda in his pocket. The real truth is he was a big kid of about 6’2″ tall in shoes, suspended from school for drug paraphernalia possession. When witnesses describe “the larger person on top”, they are in fact describing the “youth”. Most people in the public only see the 12 year old boy because those are the photos that the media shows in news reports and continue to show even today after the trial showed the youths real size as that of a large “man”.
Are all of our lives based on what someone else force feeds to us? Are we so dependent on Television, and “Entertainment Media” that, IT becomes our “Big Brother” which tells us how to eat, how to choose our mates, what is socially acceptable, politically correct, and dictates to us most of what we think is real in life?
What a sad world we live in where we have been reduced to basing our own lives on what people with agendas feed to us. And we are only more than happy to lick the bowl when we are shoved it into our mouths, brains, hearts, and characters.
I do not blame or have ill feelings towards the Sheep. This is the way it has been all through-out time and I suspect will continue through-out all time. People want to believe in Good. People want to believe in What’s Right. The problem is the “messenger” of the facts has lied to them.
This case is not about race.
Justice has been served and got it correct.
If outrage is due, it should be directed towards those who are feeding us false facts to further their own agenda’s, power, or profits.
Don’t be a Sheep!
