So..I am totally against this whole protesting frenzy that has taken America by storm. I question the motives of these random, short-lived protests. However, I had to eat my words tonight.
My babe, works in the E.R. and was telling me the other day about how it got shut down due to men storming in with guns..running over nurses. They were mad because a cop shot a guy (who had tried to take the police officers night-stick) He was shot and killed.
We just had a protest the other day. They called in Occupy Oakland. Shut down our downtown.
Turns out the guy killed was a friend of mine's family member.
I am sorry to those who grieve...I am glad that I didn't judge aloud how I felt about the boy killed.
Thing is...this is getting out of control.
We are only giving ground to those who would wish to use chaos to instill their order.
We are living against the barrel of a gun.
