Salvation Ticket

Ray Downing used the Shroud of Turin to create Jesus' image.

With all this Republican Party talk about their Anglo-Saxon heritage, keeping America “white”, the "America First" caucus, and working so hard on being a white nationalist, fundamentalist-Christian party, I hope someone reflects for a moment or two on this question:

Who is it who punched their salvation ticket for eternal life?

Why, it was Jesus. Was it not?

And was Jesus an Anglo-Saxon? Well, no.

He was a Mediterranean Jew. But he was the guy who died for us. (John 3:16)

Outraged Yet?

Caron Nazario, a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army Medical Corps, is pepper-sprayed by Windsor, Va., police officer Joe Gutierrez, during a traffic stop in December. Gutierrez threatened Lieutenant Nazario before dousing him with pepper spray and pushing him to the ground, according to body camera footage of the episode.

We passed outrage years ago. 

Honestly, it is time to create a federal standard test for the police class people.

We need to know before they become cops if they will behave ethically and follow the law when they put on a badge and strap on that sidearm. 

Do they like people or do they hate people?

Do they have serious psychological disqualifications?

Do they like inflicting pain on others?

Are they control freaks?

We need to know.

We must not continue to empower these predators, those who fail the test, with life-taking, abuse-inflicting freedom to roam our streets.

We need to know. 

Some federal authority must oversee, license, require continuing education and psychological testing for police officers throughout the U.S. That oversight must also include ICE, FBI, alcohol and drug enforcement, U.S. Marshalls, etc. – police officers at all levels of government - anyone authorized to wear a badge and carry a gun.

We must put a stop to police lawlessness and abuse today.

Forever Tigers Fan

 


I grew up in Ohio, but I guess I was always a Detroit Tigers fan at heart. 

Akil Baddoo cleared that up for me.
