So…it’s 0157 in the morning. Why am I up? No clue. Friday at work was a day from hell. I kind of feel bad for the kids because i know that my correctional officer attitude was kicking in. I have to remind myself that these kids are here for a reason and we are there because regular school doesn’t help.
I have a lot that I want to type, but my mind is going in different directions. I guess I’ll start with Mike “Hands up dont shoot” Brown vs Eric “I can’t breath” Garner. When it comes to Mike, I can’t feel bad for the guy. If you try to attack a cop..you’re gonna have a bad time. Plan and simple…if you don’t wanna get shot, do what the officer says. Of course you want to think that the officer would have used non lethal alternatives, but I wasn’t in that officers shoes. People now think they are forensic experts and law professors, due to them watching a few episodes of Law & Order SVU or CSI Miami. I watched ER and Grey’s Anatomy, that doesn’t make me a doctor. Science proves that Mike Brown attacked that officer, that should be it. Ironically, had Brown just put his damn hands up in the first place, he’d probably still be here. Now on to Eric Garner. Have you ever “choked” on a piece of food and started coughing bad to get it up. Well then, if you’re breathing enough to cough, you ain’t choking. Same principle applies here. Eric kept saying ” I can’t breath”. If I was that officer, I’d think “if you’re talking, you can breath”. I will say that I do feel bad for Eric, the officer should have taken that saying into consideration and perhaps tried a different position. The problem that I have right now is that 99% of police officers are good people, but goddamn it, for some reason that 1% can’t get out of the damn spotlight. Another problem I have is President Obama putting his two cents in. I understand that being black, he probably feels the pressure to say something. However, let’s talk about the black on black crime we have going on too, not just the white/black crap. Hell, another part of the problem are the fkn idiots that want to try to provoke an officer, just so they can record their reaction. Unfortunately in today’s world the cell phone camera is as dangerous as a gun. I don’t know if it was that my father was a sheriff’s deputy, or my two uncles are officers, or that I was law enforcement in the military but if you don’t listen to an officers orders and are a threat or you try to attack an officer, then you deserve to get your ass shot.
I’m a Bulls fan for life, but this ignorant motherfkr here is on my last nerve. As you can see, Rose is wearing an “I can’t breath” shirt to support Eric Garner. What Rose should be wearing is a shirt that says ” I can’t play”. If I was the GM, I’d fine him close to $100,000 for wearing that. But of course nobody with power within the Bulls is going to say shit because they don’t want to be viewed as racist.
Racist…I hate the fkn word. It’s not racist if it’s true, that’s called facts. People throw that damn word around like it’s a frisbee. One of my students called another student racist and I just look at him and said “you know, you’re generation is wearing that word out like an old pair of shoes”. He didn’t get it…
Well, I have more to write but I’ll do it tomorrow/today depending on how you look at it.
