EFFECT’S OF THE “FERGUSON EFFECT.”

the-flameUNFORTUNATELY, WHEN POLICE OFFICERS BACK OFF IN HIGH CRIME NEIGHBORHOODS CRIME SHOOTS THROUGH THE ROOF.  EVERY BIG CITY IN AMERICA IS CURRENTLY EXPERIENCING THE AFTERMATH OF THE FERGUSON INCIDENT.

CITIES ARE SEEING DOUBLE DIGIT INCREASES IN MURDER RATES AS WELL AS OTHER VIOLENT CRIMES AGAINST PERSONS.

WE HAVE BEEN HERE BEFORE.  IN THE 1960’S AND 70’S BLACK AND WHITE RADICALS DIRECTED THEIR HATRED AGAINST THE POLICE.  THE DIFFERENCE TODAY IS THAT THE ANTI-COP IDEOLOGY IS EMBRACED BY AND AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF THE GOVERNMENT.  THIS INCLUDES THE PRESIDENT, ATTORNEY GENERAL, COLLEGE ADMINISTRATORS AND FOUNDATION HEADS.

SOME PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES ARE COMPETING AGAINST ONE ANOTHER TO SEE WHO CAN OUT DEMAGOGUE OBAMA’S PERSISTENT RACE BASED RANTS AGAINST THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM.  THE OTHER SIDE HAS NOT EMPHASIZED THE ISSUE AS THEY MIGHT HAVE.

WE DO NOT KNOW WHEN OR WHAT WILL BRING THE CURRENT FRENZY AGAINST THE POLICE TO AN END.  WHAT IS KNOWN IS THAT OUR COUNTRY IS PLAYING WITH FIRE AND IF IT KEEPS SPREADING IT WILL BE EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO PUT OUT!!

STAY SAFE, WEAR YOUR SEAT BELT, AND YOUR VEST!!
