After much thought, I’ve decided to remove my original post regarding the events taking place in Ferguson, MO. This is not because I’m taking back my opinion on some actions of law enforcement personnel (that still stands) but rather because I didn’t include thought to the other side of the situation.I typically consider myself slightly left of center on the political spectrum, and in some situations I can find plenty of reason to side with liberals on certain matters, but here I can’t pick either side.
While some decisions made by police were wrong, so were decisions made by members of the rioting crowds. Gathering in protest: fine. Looting: not ok. No, not all crowds are rioting or causing damage to property and life. And no, not all police are acting brutishly either. Regardless, both parties have made some very poor decisions in this tense time.
Here are the facts: firing tear gas at news crews is wrong. Looting stores and rioting is wrong too. That hurts everybody, and actually hampers the justice of this police officer since now they have to deal with this mess. Civil rights were most successfully established through peaceful protest, not violent looting. On the contrary, when you shoot tear gas or nonlethals at a crowd, it will piss them off. Also putting a force on the field that seems way more heavily armed than necessary will scare the crap out of everyone.
I also do not like how biased media only shows one side or the other of this very two sided event. This causes people like me to assume that we have all the facts if we get our news from one source—like most of the nation. In a situation like this, I don’t have all the answers and quite honestly I don’t know what to think. Every side here gets away with some kind of injustice.
This is why I can’t pick a side, because we start measuring how much MORE wrong one side is to another. Many people are still hurt because of the problem. This is why I hate politics and why I hate aligning myself. Law enforcement need to fix themselves and so do the people on the streets.
No, I can’t solve the problem, but sure hope it gets solved soon. We don’t want a repeat of the 60s and 70s in terms of riots. And we want equality too.
