Understanding the rage in Ferguson
Tampa Tribune, by Otis R. Anthony

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 8/21/2014 11:34:46 AM

Sunday night was the most intense evening of the protests that have gone on for more than a week in Ferguson, Missouri. I sat at home and actually considered crashing some big convention in Tampa this week with the chant, “Hands up! Don’t shoot!” I felt driven to do something more than sit home and be a spectator to the most important event since the drama of the Civil Rights Movement. But at some point it occurred to me that making a spectacle at a majority white convention would do very little to help people understand my anger, or the

Comments:
After fifty years of progress in racial harmony, it´s come to this. Attitudes have hardened into concrete; aggrieved parties want blood, not justice. If Trayvon and Michael Brown had been like Emmitt Till or Medgar Evers just about all Americans would come to their defense, but these two characters were thugs who got themwselves shot while brutalizing armed individuals. Obama-Holder-Sharpton--and Mr. Anthony--ought to recognize Darwin Award behavior whan they see it.

A Lincoln predicted they would never assimilate. Pretty good prediction from 150 years ago.

It´s called "law and order". They Don´t like, it,so they should all just go back to Africa, where they don´t have any.

Even if what this author wishes were true is true and all of the race baiters hands up allegations prove true what this man is raging for is not justice but bloody vengeance.

All of his "facts" explaining away the criminal behavior of the rioters is based on his distant and instantaneous conclusion that if a white cop shoots black man it can only be premeditated race based murder, a KKK style execution. No other conclusion can be drawn, evidence is not required. Officer Wilson should have been handcuffed and turned over to the mob immediately, that is the only justice this "man" wants.

His rage is based on his personal, naieve and bigoted, belief that no black man would ever act in an aggressive manner toward anyone. They are all innocents, while all police, especially white police are just closet racists dying for the day they can just shoot a black kid for no reason.

How did such pathetic delusions become the reality for so many?

The article is full of invalid excuses for both the behavior of Michael Brown and all of the violent looters.

Law and order require adherence; NO EXCUSES. Illegal behavior of the magnitude seen in Ferguson is neither JUSTIFIABLE nor ACCEPTABLE in a civil society.

I won´t pretend that I know what it´s like to be a black person in America. I can only say that after decades of living on the Democrat Plantation they are no better off. Liberals have taught them collectively to be victims and blessed them with a multi-generational sense of entitlement. They will never be anything but poor living on government programs - as their Democrat masters intend. Their hatred and rage toward white people who have done them no harm is not impacting my life whatsoever. Meanwhile, illegitimate births, lack of education, and black-on-black crime is destroying theirs.

Well said!

Booker T. Washington said " “No man who continues to add something to the material, intellectual and moral well-being of the place in which he lives is long left without proper reward. This is a great human law which cannot be permanently nullified.”

The author of the subject article offers only excuses that attempt to justify unacceptable behavior which falls far short of Washington´s admonition.

Oh, my mistake it wasn´t a joke.

"On average, 100 black men are killed every year in America by white policemen."

So what? Considering the inner city violence, mostly perpetrated by Blacks, that seems to show extreme restraint. What were these Blacks doing when they got shot? Firing at the police?

"how the system moved after the incident to hide, deceive, manipulate, discredit and slow the investigation of the shooting, as well as the revealing of the autopsy."

How about how the "grievance machine" paints things? Brown was a "child". Well, a 6´4", 300 lb "child" who had fractured the police officer´s eye socket. Body lying unattended, NOT true. Slowness of delivering information and mistakes in some statements: this is extremely common in the initial stages of an investigation. People say what they believe to be true at the time and then correct themselves later as facts become available. It´s NOT a conspiracy.

The officer being put on paid leave during the investigation is standard procedure of "innocent until proven guilty". Perhaps Mr. Anthony has heard of this principle?

"killed execution-style"? Anthony skips over the details. Apparently he cannot be bothered with the "truth" that he demands elsewhere in the article. He was shot from the front multiple times. The officer was already injured by this huge man who did not have the common sense not to attack a police officer. He fired until the assailant was stopped. That is procedure in most places.

What we have is manufactured and orchestrated rage ginned up by the EXACT same group that ginned up the "facts" in the Martin case. Mr. Anthony is helping to stir the pot.

The reason for the rage is that too many people ignore the MLK standard judge by the content of the character not by the colour of the skin. This writer fails this test on every line. What a pity that keeping racism alive is politically beneficial to the evil rats! The election of Obama was supposed to mark the end of racism - remember! Obama appoints Holder who drops the Black Panther case which is recognized as the most clear cut case of voter intimidation or or any offence in legal history. There was filmed evidence along with many witnesses. Would that case be dropped if the roles were reversed? Is justice blindfolded there? Where is the "Rage" in that case?

Otis the rage occurred prior to the facts being known. What sympathy a white person can have for the treatment of blacks over 100 years ago by whites, blacks and others (that is still happening to blacks in Africa) is being shredded by actions in Ferguson that bear no relationship to the black vs. cop shooting. The knee jerk response is to blame the cop and then when it is discovered that the 300 pound boy is the attacker to try to say, yes but it could have been the cops bad actions and you know how cops are. before you turn on the rage it might be a good idea to make sure that the person you are raging for is worth the effort.

It is well known that, when faced with a legal prohibition the first instinct of lawyers is often to seek a loophole around it. (Snip) Obama can claim with lawyerly accuracy in his memoirs that he never engaged in War like that rascal Bush did. This charade can go all the way into the 22nd century and all conflict, legally speaking, will be George Bush’s fault. The modern Western world has managed to abolish war simply by refusing to use the word. It’s word magic by modern shamans. You may say it is self deception: yes, but it is self

Once a week, members of a Wellington, New Zealand, book club arrive at a cafe, grab a drink and shut off their cellphones. Then they sink into cozy chairs and read in silence for an hour. The point of the club isn´t to talk about literature, but to get away from pinging electronic devices and read, uninterrupted. The group calls itself the Slow Reading Club, and it is at the forefront of a movement populated by frazzled book lovers who miss old-school reading.

The signs of the times as read by the Roger Cohen of New York Times at least in his piece The Great Unraveling throw shadows upon a doubtful scene. (Snip) It was a time of catastrophe because it was equally a time of folly.

TAMPA — Investigators from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission say they have solved the mystery of what happened when an alligator bit a woman last month while she was in her canoe on the Hillsborough River. Andrea Reese and a friend, Morgan Fusselman, were vacationing from Youngstown, Ohio, when they decided to rent a canoe at John Sargeant Park on Aug. 7. The two women had paddled for about 45 minutes and were outside park boundaries when an alligator jumped partway into the canoe and bit Reese on the calf and thigh. The attack surprised wildlife officials because the

The sheer ruthlessness and ferocity of Islamic-style warfare was underscored by the decimation of ISIS’ main rival by persons unknown.

There is an unfortunate tendency to regard organizations like ISIS, Hamas or Hezbollah as a rag-tag agglomeration of mindless fanatics.

Ronald Reagan’s America beat the Sovs by outflanking them.

The punditry struggled to find something enlightening to say about president Obama’s strategy to degrade … defeat … inconvenience … manage ISIS — whatever you want to call it — because there was almost nothing to hold on to. (Snip) As I also predicted, Russia is already busy muddying the waters. “Russia blasts Obama for planned ‘act of aggression’ against ISIS as Iran and Syria warn he could trigger ‘first sparks of fire’ in the Middle East.” Russia, Syria and Iran are forming a coalition against Obama’s coalition. The phrase “first sparks of fire” are doubtless intended by the Russians

These characterizations are beside the point. In reality all good security decisions — even those that use war or violence as much as those which do not to attain their aims are ultimately violence

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia.

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton.

Our Constitution reserves to Congress the power to declare war and designates our president as the commander in chief, but our recent history has been characterized by executive overreach and legislative abdication in the initiation of military action.
