Hello and welcome to my little slice of the Internet and this is where I am able to let things jump out of my head and off my chest. We are all looking forward to the end of quarantine but at the same time praying for the end of the insane rioting that’s continuing around the world as a result of the inhumane and excessive force used by 4 former police officers in Minneapolis, Minnesota. As my of my followers may be aware, I’m a proud independent American citizen who is strongly supportive of law enforcement. I am extremely upset with the former officers who participated in the murder of George Floyd. No human being deserves to be killed that way. Regardless of what may or may not have occurred prior to the fatal encounter. I am several days down the road when I first started this entry, I have explored many different articles and posted many different articles since the riots and protests began. I definitely believe that this country is troubled we have a president who has not in my opinion stuck to his guns. Yes, I voted for him twice but that does not mean that I completely agree with him or his current place. I do not agree with the Democrats either I am more independent conservative with a dash of liberal but not enough to switch parties which I would never do. I support the police, I support the LGBTQ community, I support equality for everyone regardless of your race ethnicity orientation or gender. There should not be any discrimination over anyone. There are bad apples in every group gender, ethnicity, race, religions, orientations, and especially political parties and law enforcement. But those bad apples in every bunch should not be the mask or the flag for each category. People need to remember that America is supposed to be a melting pot where everybody should feel welcome. To throw it back to my ancestors, who signed the declaration of independence “We hold this truth to be self-evident that all men are created equal“. And to go off my own little jag from that I believe that all women should be treated equally. I have been following different articles, not just about Mr. George Floyd, we have more police brutality stories coming out of the woodwork and it ain’t pretty people. There are more white officers attacking black Americans. We had Mr. Derek Chauvin kill Mr. George Floyd, we had Mr. Brett Hankison kill Ms. Breonna Taylor on a mistaken identity on a mistaken household for a drug raid in Louisville Kentucky and we still need justice for Breonna but my prediction is that it Is probably coming very swiftly now that we know the “Officer” who murdered this EMT. If there is one thing outside of the craft that the craft Has taught me – it is to have an open mind about everything and everyone. With that all said I’m gonna keep this short and call tonight because there’s more to come but it has yet to be formulated so good night.
