It Doesn't Take Long for this Racist Missouri Lawman to Blast Anyone Different from a Middle-Aged White Male

I'm not surprised myself, it is Misery after all. 

I am a middle aged white male.  I am sure that man would relish seeing me die a painful humiliating death.  I wish the narrative could move beyond tired old stereotypes.  Not that I'm not tired or old.

 

I can't waste an hour of my dwindling life watching his diatribe.  I have read about parts of it.

 

Speculation here, but I suspect the man is an asshole.  His religion is part of it.  His lack of insight is part of it.  Living is some sort of mental bunker is part of it.  Lack of critical thinking is part of it.  Being in some sort of a mental echo chamber is part of it.  There are also hate mongers who are women, hate mongers who are black, latino, asian, and hate mongers who are young.  There is Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Linda Harvey, hate mongering white Lesbians in Michigan, there are hate mongering black ministers, and hate mongering young white thug white supremacy gangs.

 

And there are a few middle aged or older white men who really try to keep their minds and hearts open and make positive change in the world.

 

Sorry for the diatribe, but I am becoming a curmudgeon, and this knee-jerk liberal old saw, doesn't cut it with me, even though I am old liberal.

good news is he's been fired.  bad news is he's likely not alone among his colleagues in thinking this way.  yet i hear from conservatives all the time that the only real racism is reverse racism.  

If that idiot was fired then that is encouraging news....WE may have freedom of speech in this country, but to allow  so much hate  propaganda spewed out to the masses  is  totally  unacceptable....Some have said  we can't  have it both ways....Well I say common sense must  be taken into consideration sometimes.....There is a difference of not wanting  to serve  Neo Nazis who only want  to disrupt  your business and not wanting  to serve  Black or Gay  customers  because you don't like  the color of their skin  or sexual preference......The first example  is hate mongering, while the second  is a bias  against certain segments  of the populace...This goes for gun owners as well.....Why is it ok  for concealed weapons  or even open carry allowed  in business  surroundings where  women and children are present...Just because  we have a law  saying  it is ok to own a gun, common sense  also says it doesn't mean it has to be shoved  down our throats .....Where is common sense  today??     

".....Where is common sense  today?? "

it's on the left side of the political spectrum.  the right has been co-opted by religion so it's not surprising that common sense has been thrown out the window for their adherents.  and sadly, our political system gives far too much representation to rural America where that brand of thinking is the norm.  

@ Matthew....sad but true........Just shows  how badly things  need to change in the good ole  USA

When I was growing up, religion was never mentioned by politicians. Today, it is a litmus test. We have seen the largest chinks in the wall of separation punched out by the GOP, but both parties are certainly guilty of "Seneca's disease": Seneca said, as you know, that the ignorant believe; the wise do not, and leaders use religion to their advantage. Even fairly intelligent, fairly progressive pols claim that they believe. What we need is a litmus test for keeping "God" out of politics. Period.

David Niose takes on this issue brilliantly in "Non-believer Nation - the rise of secular America".  it's a good read.  

Thanks for the tip, Matthew Greenberg.

Hate to say it, but I don't find his firing all that encouraging of news. No one is going to be able to convince me that, as a 35 year veteran of  St. Louis County law enforcement, his superiors were unaware of his racist, barbaric, virulent, degenerate views. They nevertheless let him carry a gun, and roust the citizens of St. Louis County. The only reason he is fired is that he has been publicly exposed. How many more like him carry a badge and a gun in Missouri, and everywhere else in the US? Had the video not been made, and exposed in light of Ferguson, he'd still be intimidating law abiding citizens with the blessing of those in power.

what i find most interesting is the expedience with which the St. Louis area police apparently feel comfortable firing their weapons.  the video of the St. Louis man getting gunned down a mere 20 seconds after arriving on the scene was truly disturbing.  they fired off 12 shots in less than 3 seconds, continuing to fire after the man was on the ground.  

i just saw a stat stating that police in the US have killed over 400 civilians over the past 2 years.  in other western countries it was less than 10.  perhaps our law enforcement needs to be retrained in the act of non lethal force.  or maybe, as some have speculated, it's due to the arms race between citizens and police.  either way, this is a part of America that is clearly not exceptional.  

The situation  in Ferguson with the militarized  police just shows that local police are not  trained for such deadly equipment and not  appropriate   for defending  it's  citizenry ...Let this be a lesson to our  military on how to distribute  excess  war machinery....Instead of giving  it to local authorities, the National Guard getting them would make more sense....They at least  could store them for an unforeseen emergency  .....Local police are supposed  to defend us  not  attack us......Then again....with everyone  now  allowed to carry   a gun, maybe  this is  what is needed.....This situation in Ferguson just  proves that with so many  weapons  in civilian  hands, the local police feel the need  to upgrade ....The second amendment needs  to be abolished.. It is bringing  only  more problems for  our  citizenry.....What are  the chances  for that happening???????
