Jon Randal Essays On Life Via Cop Abuse (McKinney Texas)

McKinney Texas.  

We are moving towards brazen examples of the following imaged in many states.

How did this image? (See the Fourteen year old standing in the small group of girls as the Storm Trooper approaches).

Lead to this image: (See Storm Trooper with knee in the back of someone's just beyond pubic (girl) teenager.)

We will leave the question of how to other screeds. We have posted a thoughtful piece from a Friend of the TPI: Jon Randal.

See Jon's TPI Page listed among site pages to the upper right.

An essay with a cause!

June 7 2015

I want to say something about the pool party currently circulating in the news, in which teenagers were kicked out of a community pool because of the color of their skin. I know all the facts are not in, but there apparently was enough information that the police department suspended one of their own police officers for forcing a young girl face down on the ground and handcuffing her and threatening other unarmed youths with a gun.

If you follow my posts, you know that I try to post about love, peace, and understanding, but incidents such as this do not bring about trust, it does not promote love, it certainly will not bring about peace, and it does not help foster understanding. We obviously have a problem in this country that we can no longer deny, and it is a problem that will continue to fester. We can't just continue to blame it on the police (it's much deeper than that) and I don't think it is solely because of racism (although in this case, it is a big part of it, along with fear and ignorance).

We know this problem exists in other institutions and we know that other groups (not just people of color, but also other people who are perceived different based on their sex, their religion, their sexual orientation, their status in society, etc) are also affected. I don't have all the answers, I don't know whether anyone at this time has the answers. But, I do believe we need to all look deep within our souls and ask whether we can live with one another, treat each other with respect, and talk with each other. Because if we can't talk to each other in a civil manner, if we can't look in each other's eyes and see each other as equals, if we can't take that first step and love one another without conditions, then we will never be able to solve this problem or for that matter any problem we face or will face.

Peace ~
