During the last two weeks, this nation has been focused on an unfortunate and terrible shooting in Ferguson, Missouri. Our judicial system will take it’s course and the incident will be resolved in court, as it should and must be. But, for now, it’s being resolved in the streets with protest, riots and looting. It’s on the news around the clock with every hack lawyer and opportunist looking for their fifteen minutes of fame before a barrage of news networks.
During the last two weeks, four of our troops were brutally killed in Afghanistan. There will be no protest or riots concerning their deaths. There will be no mention of it in the national news and it’s totally unknown and irrelevant as to what color their skin was. This country needs to get it’s priorities straight. If the only way for some Americans to feel empowered, is by taking to the streets as mindless mobs....then God help us all.
