People are right to be angry about this. They should be angry about it, not because they're black or white, but as Americans. Personally, I have always hated jumping on bandwagons especially in the heat of the moment. I've observed how knee-jerk reactions have backfired after enough information came out and time passed by. But occasionally, I do find it needful to share my position on these incidents. I am not sharing this because I'm black and feel like my opinions are now valid in the light of this incident. This is NOT a teaching moment on race relations in America. At least not from me. My hope one is that one day we'll reach a state where ideas and perspectives are judged not by the ethnicity of the person but the rationale and soundness of the argument and thoughts. The casualness by which the officer places his knee is staggering. Hands are pocketed and the lack of respect for human life looks apparent. When I was growing up, we couldn't speak to our teachers and parents with pocketed hands. It came off as being disrespectful and extremely thoughtless. This incident not the norm, but an exception in police conduct. And when incidents like these happen, it's necessary to see and know the outcome of these trials so that the scales of justice can be preserved. Do I lump all officers together over this? No. Of course not. Do I think America is a racist country? No. Empirically, America is the greatest nation on the planet for all people. Therefore, rather than give into generalizations because they feed a particular narrative, remember that for these particular incidents, there is more agreement than division as Americans. I find solace in knowing that all sin and injustice are not lost to God. He is a good judge. The offense is either paid in full on the cross of Christ or by the person who's committed the offense. Justice is served either way. Some may find hope in the righteousness of God as a silly thing to do, and that's okay. The God of the Bible has time and time again, demonstrated His Righteousness and Mercy. Because God is good and just, he will do what is right. Whether through human governments and systems of justice or in the great Judgment. What he decrees and does is right. And that is enough. #GeorgeFloyd
Socialism is SLAVERY - Socialism is someone ELSE’S ownership over YOUR life, liberty & labor. Under socialism - the profits of your work go to someone who did not earn them. Your property and prosperity belongs to the state. You are dependent on those controlling you to provide shelter and sustenance. #SocialismSucks #SocialismIsSlavery From TurningPoint USA
