In the interest of being a cultural provocateur, i chose not to use our common sense formula P3B3 = CmX for this one as it is a touchy subject! I will proceed with caution and sensitivity and just get straight to the heart of the underlying issues and use what my grandma Grace Pudding (98,000 years old) would use in moments of anarchy tumult and confusion: Tough Love!!
Firstly, I acknowledge and send intergalactic angel dust and peace to the families that have lost a loved one (R.I.P) to the gentleman in Louisiana, and Minnesota, most likely a Police accidental shooting? Or a case of excessive force, maybe reasonable probable cause? Even more tragically, the great Dad in Dallas Texas who was gunned down in the line of duty, under a hail of racially motivated bias and evil intent! It’s really a crying shame that innocent lives are being lost but unfortunately such is the human condition!
So where does tough love come into play here? Well, firstly we need cooler heads to prevail and that means, it’s time for visionary leadership to step up and be the fatherly hand of wisdom to guide the afflicted and afflictionators alike (science Lab Lexicon!). But as i sit in the lab writing this piece i hear a lot of cricket sounds and the sound of a Chain-Saw, not very helpful! And then i look up above in exasperation I hear grandma Grace Pudding whisper to me: We need a few syllables that will indeed shock the nation but bring to light the real underlying issues to the core and essence of these societal problems we have today!
what is the solution and diagnosis of this ever growing “cancer of behavior”?
Syllable number one: F.A.T.H.E.R (a descriptive word meaning paternal bonding, a divine plan of happiness and parental authority,we need more of these across America in every home! and more so in the inner city across the fruited plains!).
Two worded Syllables: INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY ( God-given right and Parental driven Moral Value, that when applied can lead to more freedom, respect for self and others culminating into personal and community strength and growth!).
Thirdly, three-part syllables: Social Adaptive Skills (not just related to mental intelligence or lack thereof, but more importantly, the skill set one acquires to have values reinforced at home by a parent, simply priceless: “Respect for Authority!”
Now i understand the audience may be left gasping for extra oxygen after learning about these timeless “tough love” principles, I guarantee if we tried these 3 areas of cognitive and philosophical experiments, we will all be a better society! And how does that comport with some blatant and obvious “seemingly” isolated incidences of Police Brutality? Again we can all acknowledge that Police departments across the nation and across the board are an exemplar of professionalism and community care in Law enforcement! Can we do a better job at community engagement and law enforcement with all due respect both ways? Absolutely affirmative! Implement corrective sensitivity training that does not dilute common sense law enforcement and endanger our brave first responders lives and add further risk and stress to an already risky job? It should be a case by case basis and a localised situational and operational call by Police chiefs and their departments respectively! It’s not fair to paint a broad brush and accuse the police of brutality Cart-Blanche! Even though it’s entirely possible in about 0.5% of cases that could be true and only if verified, carefully by internal review and on the job training via a pro-active internal training affairs department! Sublimely important is the constitutional right of every citizen to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures and secure in their persons! Let us all calm down a notch and not let the demagogues among us divide and conquer us all by pretending to have any solutions when in fact they are only full of rhetoric that stokes the flames of anger, bitterness, class envy and brutish hooliganism “aka” mob rule and Anarchy 101 as espoused by the leftist, grievance industry, ignoramus, anarchists, and other such fellow travellers! There are two grenades here that should not end up in the hands of bomb throwers: 1. Stop Black arrogance/ignorance and attitude towards law and Order. 2. let’s stop White guilt and soft bigotry/Patronizing posture! Boom goes the proverbial bomb! Instead, Buyer be aware: Of charlatans and Anarchists about to steal your children’s joy and future! you know who these folks are, wether they appear to be in the power corridors of Washington DC or your local Media outlet including so-called political “talking bobble head” Pundits! http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2016/07/10/michael_eric_dyson_donald_trump_is_setting_himself_up_as_a_defender_of_whiteness_in_america
All we need is Love! Thanks, John Lennon and some Grace Pudding wisdom: Tough Love! Cheers to more Fathers in homes and Pro-active response manual in all police departments across the nation! http://ww.realclearpolitics.com/video/2016/07/11/kelly_file_super_panel_debates_black_lives_matter.
