It is 2 a.m. and i’m currently sitting on my couch watching CNN (because its the only news channel i could find), and all I can do is think about how destructive these people are being. After only watching this for about 5 minutes these are the events I have heard about:
- At least a dozen buildings set on fire.
- At least 150 shots fired (in one place).
- 29 arrests, so far.
- An elderly man was carjacked and then ran over.
- Multiple guns have seized from people.
- An used car lot was set on fire, but the firemen could not get to it because of the gunfire.
- The National Guard is having to be brought in.
These are just to name a few of the things going on in Ferguson and surrounding towns. Not only is this happening is Ferguson, but there are multiple more (peaceful) protests going on across America. Michael Brown’s parents did not want this. This is not they way to react to a shooting of a young man. As the chief of police said, “Change is created through our voice; not the destruction of our community.” Most importantly, if you think that “black lives don’t matter” then you need a reality check. Everyone knows a life is a life regardless of color, and if you think this, but you are going around setting businesses on fire, saying Darren Wilson should die, and overall acting like a raging fucktard, then you really need to grow up and get a grip. And acting like this is not making the case better for people in any way or form, all it is doing is making these people look worse than you guys already think people see you.
Hypocrisy is all I hear when these people talk. I’m not saying that some of these people aren’t out there for the right reasons but most of them are not. These people need to stop trying to make a point, or make history, because most of them are not doing it for the right reason.
