Manslaughter In Wichita

After watching the video, considering that Wichita police were responding to a “swatting” call made from over a thousand miles away, Wichita police attacked an innocent non-the-wiser citizen – Andrew Finch – and shot him dead from nearly as far away. Wichita police are guilty of manslaughter, at the least.

I can’t make a subjective call about the 17 year old brutally beaten by police in Troy, Alabama without seeing the video. And, the sudden heart attack death of Erica Garner, daughter of Eric Garner, does beg te question of family heart disease.

Even still, the conclusion is inescapable. Law enforcement in this country is long overdue for reform and retraining. The depth of arrogance and incompetence is astonishing.

    Delusion Is Done

    The break down of the American family is a problem that everyone will eventually reap the consequences of. Kids, especially young children, are more grounded and more secure when they have that contact with their mother in the nurturing years. Kids who grow up latchkey are more prone to violence and to getting into trouble. […]

    Oklahoma City Bombing 20 Years On

    One hundred and sixty-eight people died in the blast including 19 children who were in a first floor daycare. Some reports indicate that 680 people were injured and, according to Wikipedia: “The blast destroyed or damaged 324 buildings within a 16-block radius, destroyed or burned 86 cars, and shattered glass in 258 nearby buildings, causing at least an estimated $652 million worth of damage.”

    American Jihad : Radicalized Law Enforcement

    Unfortunately, the radicalization of American police will contribute more harm to the “war on terror” than they will help. Ultimately, the extremists in law enforcement intend to advance their own radical, unconstitutional, agenda and while they may not be in immediate agreement with the Islamic style radicals, they are often on a path that is parallel.

    Will The Dark Side Of The Moon Be Apocalypse Now?!

    Forgive me for waxing poetic… well maybe this wrap-up should just be called “waxy.” … In short, these stories about eugenics, censorship, invasion of privacy and the impending North Korean apocalypse deserve much more attention, but the world moves on, and these stories will reappear, probably over and again. Never-the-less, I take note for the sake of doing so.

    William Eric Freeman

    I do remember thinking that the “consequence” for revealing “classified” information seemed a little distant and out of context. There certainly wasn’t anything I could do, I didn’t know the person, didn’t know if the dossier was just a joke done in poor taste, or a metaphor for something I didn’t yet understand, or whether it could be taken seriously at all. And, since I was the only one in the classroom who saw the material, there was no temptation to discuss the contents with the teacher who showed she wanted none of it, or the other students, which probably would have deemed my assertions unbelievable anyway, thereby making me a fool in the eyes of my fourth grade peers.

    My Encounter With Danny Golden

    Under the circumstances, someone less experienced and less mature than myself, might not have been able to read the wild-eyed officer as well, and there is no question that he was ready to shoot to kill. Someone else would’ve probably been dead. That was my assessment when it happened, and it still is today.
