Q. Can you see what was the truth about Michael Brown and the Officer Darren Wilson. What really happened during that altercation?
Q. Could you look a bit more into how the situation in Ferguson is going to play out now that the officer was not indicted?
This then leads to the next question...
Q. The public response to this feels unnaturally aggressive to me. There have been at least 5 different buildings set on fire as well as many cars, looting, and lots of physical violence on anyone in the area.
I see that our country has been trying to pit people against one another for a long time. As long as we fight against ourselves we are too distracted from what is really going on (then I hear the question "How many laws, bills or issues have passed that we haven't paid attention to because our media is focused on other things?") This started with the Zimmerman and Martin case a while ago- a race war within the country is one sure way of tugging at emotions and hitting the "hot button" of many Americans. You can "ruffle feathers with Obamacare or Abortion, but to really evoke a cause attack someones heritage."
I also get that brutal crimes happen all the time. The number one cause of death in African American men is homicide. (As a note I looked this up after I heard this and this IS TRUE until they reach the age of 35- source). The media took this one instance (even though tragic) and blasted it throughout the country to evoke the emotions of thousands if not millions everywhere. I also get that undisclosed sources even bused people into Ferguson (both to create more chaos and also give the media some "good images" to televise.) Then I get an image of a show called Confessions of an Economic Hitman in which our own CIA was known to go to other countries to not only cause havoc, but get the citizens of that country stirred up as well- Only in this case it is our own government stirring up havoc in our own country.
I also get that the media (under someone elses command) isn't being totally fair to this case because the way they are portraying Michael is not the full truth. They are showing innocent pictures of Michael when he was younger and more "childlike" (I put these pics on the right) versus who he was as a grown man. This is done intentionally to create more compassion and stir more emotions (I hear people upset because "How could someone shoot a little boy.") I get that if you heard the real facts, and where there when it happened, things would seem much different that the way the media is portraying it.
Why are they doing this? Something big is on the horizon (I want to say it is tied to the economy) which the citizens are not going to be very accepting of. In the process there is going to be some civil unrest, and the government wants and needs to see how to best handle the chaos. They want and need a reason to test military authority, Martial Law and see how we respond do that (are we submissive, or do we fight for what we think is right). By creating an excuse in Ferguson, Martial Law will be viewed by the rest of the country as necessary and excused because we are "protecting ourselves from each other." They get to test their "big guns" (the phrase that came to me) while the rest of the people watch and approve because we are "helping them."
I also get that once Martial Law is declared, it is hard to stop. There will also be the underlying rule that if riots start elsewhere, Martial Law will be put into force immediately to avoid "another Ferguson." Fear will keep people in line.
And that is all I have for this reading. Thank you.
