Protests in Ferguson, MO - August 13, 2014

This week has been hard to watch unfold on TV, much harder for people in Ferguson, Missouri , and horrible for the Brown family who had their son  executed on the streets of their hometown.

I am including a video for all to see of the urban violence that has transpired. Don’t get me wrong, I know and respect the need we all have of police protection, that thin blue line between all of us and the violence and  chaos that is obviously a reality none of us wants to see or even imagine.  But I am against the militarization of police that has happened since 9/11. We have heard that  equipment from the military has been sold to local police departments.  This week we saw it and it was horrible.

Has this happened before, you might ask?  Sadly it has with rioting in the streets in places like Watts…

I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
