Are We Facing The Summer of Violence?
Cristal M Clark
Tonight we as a nation are faced with yet another mass shooting, this one in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which has left 4 dead including the gunman. In Uvalde, Texas, last week a gunman slaughtered 19 kids and two teachers and injured at least 17 people last week. A mass shooting in Buffalo last week.
We are seeing unprecedented acts of violence creep up here in the US and on top of all of that, we are starting to finally see strong signs of a looming recession.
If we get hit with a recession, it would be at the worst possible of times for the United States. If the events of last week in Uvalde did not leave you reeling with outrage I cannot fathom what sort of individual you are. We are hearing more and more cries for gun control and quite honestly, gun control is not the problem here. It is the very departments who are tasked with overseeing potential threats to this nation and blatantly ignoring the red flags, whilst sitting idly by and doing nothing so as to prevent yet another mass shooting.
It is time to take a very honest and hard look at what the issues are and solve them before we legislate for more gun control. Who keeps letting these shootings happen?
Well, if you look back at quite a few of our mass shootings in the nation, the FBI and in some cases local law enforcement. They had these individuals on a list, interviewed quite a few of them, our law enforcement agencies knew that most if not all of these mass shooters were problematic in nature, prior to a mass shooting, knew them to be mentally unstable and they stood out of each shooters way and allowed for the mass shootings to happen.
So I would venture to say with absolute conviction that our very own men and women in uniform that line, the thin blue line failed at the whole protecting and serving part. And it’s not just mass shootings, hundreds of crimes are being reported every hour in this nation and nothing is fucking done about it.
But you know what the thin blue line is engaging in rather than protecting and serving? Well that is quite the interesting thing, they have been engaging quite in common thuggery.
Our law enforcement agencies were not created to protect and serve by the way, they were created under an administration that sought to control this country not to protect and serve. Policing was created under the civil war as a militarised group and to this day, our entire system is rife without moral, decency and a criminal mindset and still very much militarised.
The Uvalde police stood outside and let children be slaughtered by a madman and they do not give a fuck for your sorrow. What policing has been for many years is a group of individuals who go after certain types of people, they harass, profile, intimidate, con people, kidnap, hold at gunpoint, bribe, set up and encourage criminal activity for the sole purpose of busting people. What they are not doing, is protecting and serving.
Law enforcement in the United States makes up the largest organised criminal organisation in the world or perhaps second to the Narcos and the Sicario. They serve to intimidate and harass and incarcerate. In fact the entirety of our legal and judicial system does just that. They were designed to go after particular groups of individuals. Racketeering, for example, DA’s love this charge because the implications will allow for enhanced sentencing right, it means you can lock someone up who is not a murderer for the maximum amount of time, but if you look at all of the things that make up a racketeering charge it makes no bloody sense at all. I was held as prisoner in my own home and that guy didn’t get charges like racketeering, but lets say my neighbour who is part of a group law enforcement has targeted and labelled them as someone who is part of a criminal organisation, like a chess club but a wee bit more daring and my neighbour takes a hostage? Well he’s certainly fucked, he’ll be charged under what is that, the Colorado Organised Crime Control Act (CRS 18-17-104) The Colorado Organised Crime Control Act prohibits a number of criminal activities aimed at members of criminal enterprises. It prohibits racketeering activity, which generally includes crimes committed by gangs or organised crime.
Law enforcement is utilising labels to do all of the things individuals who are charged under this law with, and they do it to those individuals because of a label. Law enforcement in the United States actively engages in the very activities that make up Organised Crime in this country. And we are turning a blind eye to it.
So no, more gun laws simply will not work. We need to address the how and why and change those laws as well as the very people today we are tasking to enforce them. Today’s Policing is not the answer neither is the FBI for that matter, whatever book they are going by, well it needs to be tossed and rewritten to better fit into today’s world. The whole system in its very entirety needs to be torn down and changed. And more gun control is not going to fix a thing.
Our laws here in the US by the way are instilled by judges who interpret them, yes, nothing is actually literal. So no the entire system before we can control mass shootings is already designed for failure.
Quite honestly, I wore the other boot once and I know all too well how law enforcement entraps certain people and why they choose to do that, it’s not right and it is never fair to the individuals who are ultimately charged and incarcerated. Law enforcement willing set them up, willingly engaged in criminal activity and created the drama so as to create the crime just so that they can charge them for no reason at all. On the flip side of that, I still talk to quite a few coppers, they don’t give a fuck anymore, they feel the public discontent and they don’t care about you, me or anyone. Many departments and agencies are hurting because they cannot fill the void.
All of this is of particular importance because the sure tell signs of a recession are already here, and as people lose jobs, homes, food, shelter, comforts, they will in fact, react in violent ways. And do you believe the police or the FBI are going to step and protect any of you? Do you?
We must fix our legal system, every law written and change out our current bitter, hateful and uncaring law enforcement entity before we will ever be able to fix madmen with guns slaughtering innocent children.
