For those out there that have zero knowledge and do not understand how extreme stupidity hurts us all. Forming opinions without “due process” is what has started all of the recent racial hatred that we are dealing with right now. It is my belief that everyone should allow the facts and evidence to come in before they become overly emotional, out of ignorance We are all suppose to be considered innocent until proven guilty. Whatever happened to this fundamental aspect of being an American?
Wikipedia defines; “Due process” is the legal requirement that the state must respect all legal rights that are owed to a person. Due process balances the power of law of the land and protects the individual person from it. When a government harms a person without following the exact course of the law, this constitutes a due process violation, which offends the rule of law.
This should apply to every American and every American has a right to their day in court!
If you are one that refuses to accept this fundamental concept, due to race, that makes you a racist! The fact is that those that scream the loudest about racism are often the most racist of us all and racism is something that can be applied to and directed at any and every ethnic group……..including white people and white cops.
Racism is defined as “hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.”
The simple fact is, that if you hate or condemn white police officers, without “due process” you are a racist.
It is “due process” that allows us to separate the innocent from the guilty and those that are racist from those that are not.
I absolutely disagree with the progressive’s narrative of “systemic racism” inside of the police forces. Since I am not a deaf, dumb, and blind overly emotional puppet of the liberal left, I tend to wait on the facts, the evidence, and the justice system to proceed through “due process” since that is how America is supposed to work. See, I still love and believe in this Country and the ideals set down by the Constitution. I believe in equal protection and justice under the law, unlike the leftist administration, the leftist media, and those that claim they are “civil rights” advocates, all while attacking the civil rights of other people. The hypocrisy, the lies, the deceit, and the sleazy use of a false narrative is plain to see for those that refuse to be brain washed.
When we look at the events of the recent past, what we see is over the top outrage and racism coming before “due process” has ever been given a chance to even get started. People are tried and convicted, in the court of public opinion, by the progressive administration, the leftist media, the hypocritical “civil rights” leaders, and their weak-minded puppets.
The BLM movement came out of Ferguson, Missouri, where a proven criminal tried to murder a police officer, in two separate attempts. Instead of waiting to see what the facts of the case were and where the evidence led us, the progressives created a false narrative that stripped the civil rights away from a good man and a good officer, that was simply trying to do his job and not be murdered.
“Hands up, don’t shoot!” has been proven to have never happened. It was and still is a lie started by a known criminal and accomplice, then knowingly perpetuated by those that have created a racial divisiveness like this Country has not seen in over 50 years. These same irresponsible people continue with their rhetoric and their false narrative in order to remain in political positions of power and to make money.
Due process has not failed the recent civil rights movement. Guilty officers have been found guilty and innocent officers have been found innocent. As a Self Defense Instructor that is extensively trained in what makes a good shoot and what makes a bad shoot, there is one overriding fact inside of this training. That is the fact, that even if it is a good shoot, the price is so high that the only reason a good and decent person would want to deal with the consequences, is out of reasonable fear of death or grave bodily injury to yourself or another innocent.
Seriously, look at absolute chaos, racism, and racial divisiveness that is going on today! Who in their right mind would want to deal with this amount of trouble, if they did not have to, unless they themselves belonged locked up and behind bars.
Let the justice system convict the guilty and clear the innocent. That takes time! It will never be instant justice, if we truly want it to be justice. What we are seeing from those that keep preaching “civil rights” and “justice” is much more in line with the actions of people violating people’s civil rights and vigilantes. Educate yourself on the American legal system, The Constitution, The Bill of Rights, the laws on self-defense and use of force, then get out-of-the-way and let due process take the time it needs to find the truth.
Black lives matter, white lives matter, blue lives matter…….ALL LIVES MATTER!
Anything short of that fact is racist.
