Recent articles address the incident in Ferguson. Why is Michael Brown being hailed as a fallen hero? He was a suspect in a strong-arm robbery with video showing him doing it. He then attacked the officer contacting him who was still in his vehicle. Now they have a monument on the spot where he died? He wasn’t in any way a hero.
In more and more cases there are those who have made bad decisions and died for that decision. These are bad guys committing bad crimes upon others that are being hailed as heroes. Has America lost its mind? Are we so scared of the racism moniker that we won’t stand up to such lunacy?
There was no racism here or at many of the other incidents. These were criminals being apprehended for committing crimes and nothing else. Because they are black and the police officer doing the apprehension is white makes this person different from all the other criminals committing crimes against others?
The real heroes are the police who are out there getting no thanks for the very hard jobs they have that have been made even more difficult because of this twisted use of racism. Now we have black lives matter, aka black lives don’t really matter, running out and causing disturbances at events to spout this junk about Michael Brown being a hero. There is no hero in being a criminal who attacked a shop owner and a police officer.
