How long are American’s going to take the tyrannical abuse’s of seemingly endless police brutality arising across this country! The recent death of Kelly Thomas a mentally disabled man beaten to an unrecognizable state that led to his death, has me wondering how long? How long will it be before “We the People” take up the mentality of our forefathers? Our forefathers, the framers stood up to tyranny with the mentality that what they do to one of us they do to all of us, what they do to one colony they do to all. As people stood around in utter amazement and disbelief watching the beating occur to to Mr. Thomas no one intervened! Not one person saw in themselves to have enough back bone to intervene, and save a life! I wonder if those people who decided to stand around and watch rather than do or say anything would want someone to intervene had they been in Mr. Thomas’s shoes? Or would they be content to get beat to death with on lookers not saying, or doing anything while something so blatantly wrong occurred in front of them? So, I sayÂ wake up!
Before Police beating
After Police Beating
Shocking: This picture shows the extent of the injuries Thomas received after being beaten up by six police officers
I know the police all over this nation are jacked up on steroids, and utterly out of control. However, you that stand by and do nothing are just as guilty as the murders in my view! Put yourself in the shoes of Mr. Thomas’s parents, How would you feel? Would you do something, or say something when you saw something so wrong happening to one of your own family members? Well, you should because with the wayward policing in this country it is only a matter of time until it truly is one of your family or friends!
What tyrants do to one they do to all. Think about that, think long and hard about it! Not one of the more than 100 witnesses did anything to stop this brutal beating. I hope you all feel disgusted with yourself for doing nothing. I mean one person stepping up, and just merely saying something could have completely changed the outcome of this ordeal. Even if the guy is a criminal, they are as human as me or you! The police are tasked with apprehension, not playing judge, jury, and executioner! “We the People” are the ultimate authority and it is damn sure time we started acting like it! So, again the question is How Long?
