In the mind's eye...
That is true serial killer speak. More so for the latter because it talks in third person which seems to make them feel a higher power of control. I don't make this shit up. It's what they tell us.
I have read several manifestos, writings, rantings, doodles, watched shows exploiting these words, been to the FBI schools.
It's all the same. They think alike. They write alike. Now that is a psychological study experiment to explore.
David Bush wrote the same way. Was he a serial killer?No. But he was serial in his criminal and personal actions. And I'm not talking about Captain Crunch.
They are all narcissists. It's a personality disorder where one is so self-involved, self-serving, self-absorbed, egotistical...the definitions go on.
What does that tell me? Not much. It's just a reflection. No matter where I read those words, they perk up my attention.
Perhaps because it's a cop trigger.
I've been doing another study on my own involving human behavior and trying to access inner thoughts. Scary, isn't it? I'm not even Freud. Good thing, everything would be phallic and based upon sexual needs.
I've been observing some posts, writings, media blips, and such on racism and the cops, the whole shebang.
I thought society was going to simmer down so we could get to a talking point of common sense and find a middle ground of true positive solutions for change.
I don't know if we will. It seems to be creating The Great Divide.
Every little nit picking of anyone's sentences are now going to be held against you. Even if there is racial neutrality in your words, don't think someone isn't going to find something. Even if you are trying to squish out hate, don't think you won't be attacked.
For example, the KKK flyers and recruitment going on in Indiana brought up some conversation. The cops were like, "It's free speech. Can't do nothing about it." Fargo was like..."I understand that, but how about some littering charges." They came under the cloak of darkness around 11:30 PM and left bags of rocks or glass to hold down their propaganda on people's private property, i.e....porches, driveways, doors, etc. I guess I have been a cop too long because we ran them out of town when they came to Wyoming. We did it legally and mostly left them alone to rant their hate, but they did so on public property and we did not allow flyers. They were and are against a city ordinance solely designed to combat litter as a green movement. There are also state statutes in Wyoming as in every state against littering. In Indiana...this is what I got told when I suggested these things...and mind you...I was just as capable as the next person to throw their stuff away..BUT...I don't like hate baiters...
"Why can't Americans accept that even fools have free speech?"
"No. Petty charges should not be used to pervert free speech."
He had valid points.
But if we don't push back against haters and lay down are we just as guilty as those who partake in the madness? Is it because people are afraid of them? Retaliation? Or if we ignore it, it will go away? Which is it?
Perhaps I have had the cop mindset of tackling every complaint from citizens with the letter of the law. Should we just walk away? Is it better to stop listening to race baiters? Should we just turn a deaf ear to them?
Or are we putting too much effort into change and creating positive solutions? Appeasing the angry masses? What is the best solution?
I don't know.
I just know maybe I need to put a lot of thought into it.
It still bothers me we have animosity and I am targeted as a racist just because of the color of my skin. Didn't we combat that issue in the 60's? Why are we again painting color lines?
I perused the Facebook feeds of some of my African-American friends to find their feeds will full of anger and animosity toward police and showing jaded advertisements from companies, education, and memes spewing "Put the White Man Down." Really? You can walk beside me as a friend, but you feel this way inside? What is going on here? Why do you feel that way? The Answer: Oh, not you, Fargo, but the rest of them.
And there are many people of every color and ethnicity who are angry at the violence and outrage. Many have opinions on the way things are declining to be vocal but stay quiet on social media or in public. They are conflicted. However, many push back against it. They are conflicted. Yes, I said that twice.
My cop friends feeds are filled with the same type of memes in favor of cops, don't blanket law enforcement, favorable videos of cops doing nice things. Sometimes I share them on The Boogie Man Facebook page, sometimes I don't. It frustrates me. Why are cops lashing back? We took everything negative before and just let it roll off our backs. Have cops reached the breaking point?
We never had to show those things before although cops have been doing that for years. And now we cheapen it by taking videos of ourselves as law enforcement doing nice things for people? Well, maybe I think it is being cheapened but law enforcement want to show the world what they do behind the scenes. But---society believes they are doing it just to counter the riots, the hate baiters, and the negative light being placed upon them.
So what's the answer?
I don't know. But I like this candid shot here because it speaks to me and says a lot about the hurt and pain going on inside these two people at that emotional moment in time.
Yes, white cops get killed by black criminals. No riots.
Murders happen every day with people of different colors or no colors (because I've been told white is not a color). No riots.
What is really going on here? Is there something deeper festering?
Have I gone too far by going on a limb and saying the President is feeding the fire and contributing to the problem rather than being a part of the solution? Do we want the federal government running our law enforcement? That's what people have bitched about for so long...militarization of police is bad...no good. Well, look at us now?
And what about Al Notso Sharpton? Isn't he just like the Travelocity Gnome?
My head hurts.
Can we have another topic please?
