Again innocent victims have been attacked, this time an ambush on our NYFD…. The men that we owe a great deal to, the ones whom put our lives before their own. This morning during a fire that looks like an ambush, four upstate NYFD were shot at by a felon. A man that killed his grandmother with a hammer in the 80’s. He was released and until now has been law abiding or so we think, has again committed a hanious crime. He shot at the firefighters that were their to save property and any victims. Instead they were greeted with bullets. Five were shot, (2) fire fighters were killed, and (2) were injured. A bystander was also injured.
While the NRA and our politicians play the game of which weapons to ban, and or which gun laws should be implemented we continue to have tragedies such as these. We have politicians discussing mental health as an issue, and being part of the problem of some of these crimes, we cannot allow them to place blame, and point fingers. We must stand for what’s right. We shall not allow the few to destroy our society. Again I continue to plead to the masses that we must change our culture, and stop waiting for our law makers to come up with a solution.
Empowerment over our own future is vital today. Not tomorrow if we continue as we are there will not be a future for our children or grandchildren. We need to educate our children, we need to address any anger issues they may have at an early age. We must ensure that our homes are free from violence amongst each other, this is the first step. The first step to changing our society. How else can we move on without this change.
David Sirota of http://www.salon.com finally addressed a theory that I thought would never be publicly addressed. He dared that since 70% of these mass shootings are done by white males, should it be time for that population to be profiled? He noted as so many of us have that if these shootings were committed by an African American male then he would be a hooligan, or a thug. If it were that of a middle eastern/Islamist then is would be an act of terrorism.
When Timothy McVeigh bombed the Federal Building in Oklahoma, was that not an act of terrorism by a white male non Islamic? The Aurora Colorado shooting, looks like an act of terrorism to me, since it was a direct attack on innocent people. When will the government begin to realize that we do have home grown terrorism, and a violence against Americans by Americans that has yet to be explained.
We are not killing each other for food, or better way of life. We are not attempting to free us from oppression. The killing in the US is for sport, and it needs to stop.
Lets stop this senseless killings NOW!!!!!
