American Law and Order 101; It’s not hard, it’s always been black and white. And so it goes… Again.

Shielded From Evil.

Another black man lies in the street,
Another white cop keeps him down,
So slowly a good heart ceases to beat;
That’s justice served in Chauvin Town.

Those moving pictures are a tragedy to behold,
Kneed evidence of another good ol’ boy in blue?
It makes any poor innocent mans blood run cold;
Pray, Officer Chauvin, who protects us from you?

    Perhaps it’s petty of me, but I’ve grown weary of the various police chiefs across the country who are saying things along the lines of “the actions of these officers do not reflect our values”. Actually, they do, because those officers ARE a part of your team. Stop obfuscating and start culling…

      This idiocy this week makes me so grateful I’m not in the fall-out zone. The problem is that the police, by being street level arbiters of justice, think they can not just uphold the law but become the law. It’s like being beside uranium. The longer you stay in the environment, the more you get infected by the toxins. Then there’s the Chauvin’s of this world, assholes from the moment they don (Don?) the uniform.
      Also, I have a line up there, it says ‘a touch of whimsy.’ Whimsical yucks ain’t cutting it for me at the moment. Again, I try, but seriously, not a lot to laugh about.
