What Really Happened in Baltimore…

In case you didn’t see it,the Maryland State’s Attorney, Chief Prosecutor, Marilyn Mosby, gave a press conference today on the charging of the six police officers, involved in the death of 25 year old Freddie Gray, with various forms of murder (“manslaughter”).

All I can say is “good for her!” She is fabulous! I’d vote for her for President or anything else she wants to be!

Going forward, the due process has begun. It may be a long journey to the end, but at least we-the-people have some hope… some…. hope…

Cheers for the Truth Seekers!

“Women are supposed to be very calm generally: but women feel just as men feel; they need exercise for their faculties, and a field for their efforts as much as their brothers do; they suffer from too rigid a restraint, too absolute a stagnation, precisely as men would suffer; and it is narrow-minded in their more privileged fellow-creatures to say that they ought to confine themselves to making puddings and knitting stockings, to playing on the piano and embroidering bags. It is thoughtless to condemn them, or laugh at them, if they seek to do more or learn more than custom has pronounced necessary for their sex.”

~from JANE EYRE by Charlotte Bronte~

I think I could turn and live awhile with the animals…

They are so placid and self-contained,

I stand and look at them sometimes half the day long.

They do not sweat and whine about their condition,

They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,

They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,

Not one is dissatisfied… not one is demented with the mania of owning things,

Not one kneels to another nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago,

Not one is respectable or industrious over the whole earth.

~ [Walt Whitman, from “Leaves of Grass, No. 32”] ~

    Why assume any racism or intent before facts are known?

    No, that man did not say that, the NY Times wrote it but it was not true at all. He said he never said it! I believe him. I do not believe the police. Period. They are in cover-up mode now and will say anything to get off paying for their actions which killed that young man.

    Yes, I would love to see some justice, finally, for once, too Eric.

    I don’t think we will ever see the end of racism in this world. It’s way too rampant and lives everywhere. It’s how a person of one race makes him/herself feel “better” than others – sometimes it’s the only way they can!

    Did anyone notice that the other man held in the truck first testified that the guy who died was banging around in his compartment on his own? Oh, but days later he’s changing what he first said and says “Why would he do that to himself?”

    Well, maybe because he wanted to get back at the cops and *say* they did something to him when they didn’t, so he was bruising himself up? And then, uh oh, there’s an open bolt right where he’s throwing himself against the walls.

    Hey, I don’t know what really did happen but I do know that the first thing a witness says immediately after something like this is more likely to be the truth. And if this man did accidentally do this to himself, I feel horrible for the innocent police who might be persecuted and prosecuted for this.
