As Ferguson Burns
The African-Americans I know are just like me. They believe that when thugs of any color steal, assault police officers... And end up dead... That it's a proper outcome. It's an outcome that makes their children and property safer. No one wants their kids endangered by such individuals.
And it's an insult to these same African-Americans that a liberal government is treating the blacks presently destroying Ferguson, Missouri as if they were children... As if they simply can't help but riot.
I think it's ironic and instructive that these rioters are imitating the deceased 18-year-old Michael Brown in that they are stealing and assaulting police officers. They know they will not end up in the city morgue because a liberal government will order the police to show restraint, even if they and firefighters are assaulted and threatened with deadly force.
But the true criminals are the haters, the inciters... the Al Sharptons who provoke violence among the ignorant instead of promoting civil, lawful behavior and a correct understanding of what happened in Ferguson back in August.
But the only time that Al and his ilk will serve, is time before a television camera.
But I guess I'm just a softie... I can't help but feel sorry for the next Michael Brown... The next ignorant punk that is raised with no respect for the rule of law. But hey! If he survives, America just might elect him president!
