Nice Role Model
A year after Ferguson and the community continues to make a hero out of a common criminal:
- On the first anniversary of Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, Mo., a church service this morning on the South Side paid tribute to him.
Father Michael Pfleger says it’s not enough to just remember Brown, but force the country to address the issue of what he calls the genocide of black youth.
The outspoken pastor says that comes at the hands of police who racially profile; vigilantes who are “trigger happy,” as well as black-on-black crime.
Well, one out of three is a Hall of Fame type batting average we suppose.
- In almost every case over the past year we've seen, the cops don't racially profile - they profile criminal behavior. Perhaps someone ought to look into why certain segments of society believe themselves to be exempt from the laws governing everyone else. Or better yet, give police a list of crimes that certain people (and folks) are excluded from having to follow.
- We can count the vigilante-type killings on one hand. And we'll bet $50 that the ones Phleger counts are the mentally ill who shouldn't be in possession of guns anyway.
- Black-on-black crime is the real issue, but Phleger lists it third.
Way to go phather, you dumb phuck.
