Police Don’t Shoot BMW-Driving White Teen Who Committed Three Hit-And-Runs And Assaulted Officer (VIDEO)

We shouldn’t be upset with the rich white girl.

 

We should be upset with the police and with ourselves.

 

We’ve become a nation of gullible and fearful sheep since 9/11. Is it any wonder that police have become untrained and unqualified military units with armored vehicles and grenade launchers?

 

Oh. By the way.

 

There is nothing "liberal" or "progressive" about militarized police departments or the absurdity claimed by some that we live in a post-racial America.

 

We shouldn’t be upset or surprised that rich white girls and poor black men get treated differently by society and by the police unless we’re prepared to get off our asses and do something about it.

 

That "something" is to vote for people with the courage to shrink our military, to disarm our police, and to stand up for justice.

About Peaceful Patriot

Proud middle class husband, father, and progressive liberal. Registered Non-Partisan but have much more in common with Democrats than Republicans. Consider Libertarians to be immature and underdeveloped in their understanding of reality. An atheist who doesn't care what you believe so long as you stop pretending the Founding Fathers intended for you to legislatively force your beliefs on everyone else. Laughs out loud in mocking disdain at the abject lunacy of birthers, climate science deniers, and hard core tea partiers. If that offends you, too bad. You're not rational and have no place at the adult table.
