I just finished watching an interview with Michael Brown parents.
Mother: "He would never do anything like that he respected everyone"
Father: "Who's that stupid to rush a policer officer, he respected law enforcement"
Withought being insensitive to his parents who did love their child and are hurting. The video in the liquor store contradicts what the both of them are saying. When he turns around and moves toward the clerk he is not respecting anyone. He's brazen enough to even challenge the clerk. Text book strong arm robbery.
When someone respects law enforcement then clearly they must respect the law. From the video..... this isn't the case..
I understand that parents love their children and mostly see the good in them..... because all of us diplay love, respect, and goodness at some point in our lives. On that particular day...for whatever reason, a course of events lead up to his death.
I've had the opportunity to hear everyone in this forum. At some point although we hold fast to our core beliefs and convictions that are based on our worldview......how can two groups be so divided when watching the same event.?
Isolation for many years gave me the opprtunity to think........reflect on the decisions that caused so much pain to myself and family. I realized that every decision I make affects the next decision...and so forth and so on. To look at myself and to finally see that it all starts with me (the self) Every decision is important.... every decision has cosnsequences as slight as they may be.
People don't understand that all of us come from diferent CONDITIONS, we have cognitions (beliefs) about our conditions that ultimately lead to choices (consequences)
Our emotions (subjectivism) get in the way of solutions. As long as we remain seperated from the truth (which can force usto look at ourselves) things will never change. Ferguson should remind how seperate we really are and that things need to change.....Emotions also reveal what we really think
Example; Michael brown's step dad: Burn this bitch down. He meant what he said. Raw emotion....I expected that. I would react in the same way.... i would own it and not later deny it. Like they say..... a drunk man speaks a sober mind.
