DimaMazin Posted November 30, 2014 Share Posted November 30, 2014 Your reaffirmation of my informed observations has been redundant all along. The white people of the Ferguson area have been reinforcing the obvious in apparent obliviousness every time they say anything on the record here. That marks the center of the problem faced by anyone trying to "do something" about the racial politics of Ferguson in particular, the St Louis area in general, or God help us the US as a country. After WWII the conquerers of Germany set about - deliberately and expensively - trying to root out and disable the psychiatric disorder underlying the Nazi political movement. The Germans had been taken over by a craziness, and beating them militarily did not restore them to sanity. This "deNazification" apparently did some good. The US after the Civil War was not in a position to do that in the Confederacy, more is the pity. That depends on what is being argued against. If assertions at odds with the simple known facts of the matter are being made, repetition of those facts is a gentle way of making a reasonable argument, no? If as all the evidence indicates Wilson fired eleven shots at a wounded, fleeing, and finally surrendering person, the last of which came in the burst after a three second delay (count three, right?) and were the ones that killed the person, he has no right to a clear conscience. If he panicked, if he lost control of his behavior under the stress of the situation, if his training was inadequate or his mental state overwhelmed or the like, we can forgive him in good conscience ourselves. Especially this if he shows self-awareness and remorse. But his own conscience? One would hope for better. When policeman have no right to kill a criminal then he(she) should avoid a meeting with a criminal. Do you need such policeman? Some people want to live in USA and make negative development. The things are incompatible now. But they want to have a right to make negative development. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
