And now, something horrible happened in Dallas. I have to say, it was just a matter of time.
This little gem was taken from a post when Eric Garner was killed back in 2014:
Here’s the deal and I’ve been talking about this for months. Everyone talks about how few Realtors are actually good at their jobs. About 10% will really rock your world. Another 10-15% can do a decent job. The next 60% are just average. They don’t do anything amazing but they don’t screw up fantastically either. The last 20% are thieves, liars and cheats. Completely incompetent. Think about the field you’re in. The same thing is true. It’s true for lawyers, it’s true in the military, it’s true for every other field out there. Including policing. The problem is cops have guns and interact with the general public. So their screw ups are magnified.
The post was entitled “They have the authority to kill a minority”. Damn. I hate it when I’m that right. And then when someone who is in the business actually agrees with me. Goddamn.
Blane Salamoni and Howie Lake II have the blood of the Dallas cops on their hands. Jeronimo Yanez has the blood of the Dallas cops on his hands. If they don’t violate the human rights of innocent black men, Philando Castile and Alton Sterling are just fine and went to work yesterday. And five Dallas cops went home to their families last night. It’s on your hands. And for the love of all things holy, you asshats trot out that “I was in fear for my life” bullshit and this country is going to erupt.
You can’t keep shooting black men and not expect the community to rise up. I think we are on the verge of a 1968 riots situation. I think the frustration level is that high. And I think it’s fixin’ to boil over. A lone gunman did a terrible thing in Dallas Thursday night. A cop did a terrible thing in Falcon Heights last Wednesday. Two cops did a terrible thing in Baton Rouge. And it needs to stop. If the police community does not address this problem with vigor, we are headed to a race war. And we deserve it.
