UPDATE: I don't buy into the story that black youth being targeted by whites police. That is not what this Blog is about. To put into perspective the acts of racial violence I did a fact check: In 2010 the National Crime Victimization Survey found that racial violence did indeed exist, just not the way the media would have you believe. 62,953 blacks were the victims of white on black violence. The flip side of the racial coin: 320,082 whites were victims of black on white crimes. That's 25 times more acts of violence against whites than against blacks.  I wrote this Blog to bring attention to this one failure of Justice. I, in no way, believe Michael Brown to be the 'Gentle Giant" his family and the media portray him as. He was an 18 year old thug, who used his size for intimidation, hence the video of the theft at the convenience store and how his act of beligerence and act of lawlessness was never lost on me. The Blog is about a police officer as well as other police officers ignoring training and allowing their hotheaded emotions to skip out on their training, creating uneccessary deaths. I am not a racisit, nor are my black friends. Get a grip America. Racism is alive and well, just not the way you would believe.

Another Update: I have been informed that Officer Wilson left his Taser in his locker. So a police officer did not take all of the tools of his trade with him to work, a tool that could have resulted in the difference of Michael Brown living or dying and still a "No True Bill". Was the Grand Jury informed of this failure to follow procedure? 

   Let me preface this with the following statement: No matter what type of person 18 year old Michael Brown was, Justice was not to be blind for even him. Thugs, arsonists, anarchist, and the actions of thieves did not help  bring Justice to Michael Brown, his family, or the community. They just proved that wolves are in every crowd, ready to devour at the slightest hint of weakness and opportunity. That has been proven in the St. Louis suburb and other cities across the country since the verdict of "No True Bill" was handed down. Of course along with this, the race baiters, Jessee Jackson, Al Sharpton, a Missouri State Senator and others have come out, not to tell the black community to peacefully protest and to denounce and turn the wolves over to authorities for prosecution and bring to an end to the violence, rather they have stoked the flames of an unneeded fire of hate and racism. No one receives justice when violence and anarchy rules, especially not Michael Brown, the Brown family, the businesses, or car owners, who saw their life's work or purchases destroyed in flames..
     Justice was not done Monday. The Grand Jury was fed a litany of witnesses and evidence. The only item of evidence that was missing was COMMON SENSE. Per true eye witnesses and the forensic evidence, Michael Brown did in fact tussle with Officer Darren Wilson in the open doorway of the police vehicle, causing shots to be fired at close range, hitting Michael Brown in the hand, forearm and bicep. These injuries, though no doubt extremely painful, were not life threatening. The actions of Michael Brown resulted in Wilson fearing for his life, resulting in Michael Brown being shot approximately three times at close range. Here is where the common sense comes into play.

     If I am afraid for life, do I chase the running person I was in fear of? Here is where the shoe of evidence switches to the other foot. Michael Brown, not officer Wilson, was in fear for his life, already being shot three times, hurting, bleeding and being chased by a man with the gun who just shot me. Michael was at that time was in fear of Wilson and running for his life. Wilson, in pursuit, could have at any moment switched from deadly force to a non-lethal form of defense. Pepper spray or his stun gun, could have and should have been used to end the fight with Michael Brown. Michael became the feral beast backed into a corner, turned, and according to Officer Wilson and witness statements, turned and charged Wilson. By then Officer Wilson, armed with his non-lethal  forms of defense, could have easily disabled Brown, stopping further injury to both Brown and Wilson, and allowing the whole event to end without anyone dying that day.

     In a previous Blog: Why are police opting out of non-lethal for lethal encounters?, I explored what I saw as a trend in American law enforcement. What we see is the ramped up of the distrust of police by minority communities. The very people that need their help the most, the minority good citizens living in those dangerous poor neighborhoods, now are in more fear because the very last line of help they reallied on, will now place them in danger should they be seen calling on law enforcement for help (The Wolves are watching!).

     So, Terry, the man who is full of opinions, what do we do? First we see things as they are. A very loud cry of injustice for Michael Brown and his family. Officer Wilson was guilty of no less than Voluntary Manslaughter. His training should have either called for him to wait for backup or switch to a non-lethal form of defense. We have to have cooler heads prevail Instead of the Jacksons and Sharptons stoking the coals of hate and racism, we need a show of unity in resolving the mistrust by the standing up and mixing in with upset communities by the Dr. Ben Carsons, the Conda Leeza Rices, the Allen Wests, and the Juan Williams, African Americans who can bring together and speak positively to these communities and law enforcement about constructive change and how to address short term and long term resolutions that will turn racism into Americans trusting Americans with their safety and justified use of force to take down the bad seeds. Ferguson law enforcement, no, all law enforcement should go through extensive re-training on the use of proper force to stop a perpetrator, not just pulling out a 9mm Glock.

     No amount of training will stop the need for deadly force, especially when law enforcement is facing down the barrel of powerful weapons, or knowing they are having to deal with the real bad guys. We want our law enforcement safe as well. Will there ever be a stop to violence. No. However, with proper attitudes, training and trust, we can make a disastrous situation into one that drives us forward towards a common goal: The right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.  All Americans want it and deserve their chance. 


In this day of hate, rage and violence, we all need to something to smile about and remember that no matter what the hate promoters say, we are all Americans. We are a family, and as a family we may disagree at times, but we pull together and protect what is ours. In this case it's our country and work to make it better and equal for all. Enjoy

As Retold By Robbin Kay (Betts) Manning
A poem my grandmother Ellen Dunmyer told us when we were children. It was passed down from her grandmother.

I dreamt I went to Turkey Land a year ago tonight.
How I got there I don’t understand, but I was there alright!
They had me fastened in a coop, a fattening for a feast,
Whether I’d be roast or soup, I knew not in the least!
I thought that I would scantly stay; I’d not get fat for meat,
but they brought such goodies every day, I could not help but eat!
Such delicious cakes and high minced pies, OH(!) all the things were dandy;
and every meal I finished off with a half a pound of candy!
And Oh (!) the ice cream, it was so good, I could not help but eat;
Until, at last, I grew so fat, I could not see my feet!
And then one Turkey gobbler tall, a jolly fat ole fellow said, “Wife, I
Think this boy will make us to some Thanksgiving dinner.
“ Oh, I’ll have his wishbone”, one turk cried! An ugly little chick,
 and “I’ll have his thighs They cried;” their names were Tom and Dick.”
My heart sank way down in my shoes; I shook with mortal fear,
When the Gobbler reached into the coop and grabbed me by the ear.
He held a long and glittering knife; I tell you twas no joke.
I kicked and screamed and terror wild; then, oh joy I woke!
Mother was bending over me saying,
“Ted, I told you, you ate too much
cold turkey before you went to bed!”

Emma Lazurus wrote a poem in 1883 that stated what a great country we live in and how we viewed those who wanted to live in freedom and offer their families the opportunity to live a life that offered them a better life than what the oppressive governments in their country would ever allow. 

 Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

The Statue of Liberty stood tall as a beacon as a light of hope when the immigrants first laid eyes on it. Hope filled their hearts as they realized their dreams were soon to come to fruition! What a sight it must have been to our families and the joy they must have felt. It's almost impossible to imagine that feeling! However, above all else, they entered our country legally and were rewarded for their legal entry the opportunity to realize their dreams.

The way Obama sees it, what worked before is impossible to work again, that is: it goes against his great scheme of Muslim rule. Just open the flood gates and let the illegals pour in, unabated, in a direct affront to our legal system, and in disregard to The Constitution. Obama has proven repeatedly that he regards The Constitution as something Conservatives (oh I meant to say racists; isn't that what you call Conservatives Eric Holder and liberals?) like to scream about the holiness of that piece of parchment. Yet, this is just smoke and mirrors while you attempt to hide the fact that you are placing Muslims into high positions of power and authority inside our government. It takes those of us who will confront you to take hammers and break the mirrors, and fans to blow away the smoke so that others can see the truth. Do you see it now, America?

We can again bring legal immigration back to its glory. Congress and the Senate should require that Ellis Island be renovated to point immigrants again to the Great Beacon of Hope. Now this requires our borders be secured and our coast lines be patrolled. Can it happen? Easily, and it would be less expensive than having to pay all the money our country will pay out to keep up the illegal immigrants, their crimes, food stamps, welfare, Medicaid, free housing, and all the other tidbits we will GIVE THEM, while they drain our Federal, State, County and City resources. If not, we can expect a country gone broke, crime rates through the roof, drugs brought in faster and easier, and gang violence causing our streets to no longer be safe for law abiding citizens. Our paramilitary forces (police, sheriff's deputies, state police, Homeland Security, and National Guard) will be overwhelmed creating the need for our Militias to strike out as well as vigilantly justice to rule. 

Now having said all that, what happens to the office of the Presidency? Obama will attempt to declare Martial Law, which by law he will need the cooperation of The Congress, but then again Obama has a pen and a phone, right? That has been his way to break the law, while an impotent and self serving Houses of Congress stand by and make big speeches, crying foul but doing nothing. To do something means they would not require that they perform their duties and earn their pay. Heaven forbid they be required to do their jobs! I shudder at the thought that they might actually do something! 

The answer to this problem is not to do nothing, rather it is to remember what worked and realize it can work again! That is simple, but effective. HOWEVER you have to love God, America, the American people, The Constitution, and law and order. In one last simple statement: None of those things are important to you Obama, you Muslim loving, law breaking criminal and American hating (pardon my french) bastard!!

     When I was in middle school, Tennessee History was a required course for us to take. Nope, no ifs ands and buts about it. You took it and learned a wealth of knowledge about The State of Tennessee (Which was originally named "The State of Franklin" until Ben Franklin nixed it).
     When I was in high school, American History was a required course you had to take. Nope, no ifs ands or buts about it. In the process you learned a wealth of knowledge about our great nation. It is the type of knowledge you retained for a lifetime.
     I say this to lead into this true event that occurred the other day. A friends nine year old daughter came home from school with a pamphlet that was teaching her all about Muslims and how they believe and live. The last time I did a GPS reading, she lives in the same town I do, not in a Sand Sucker part of the world. Is this what we want our children to learn? Really?
     To be honest, I couldn't give a Tinker's Damn about Muslims, what they believe and how they live! Now I live in what I believed to be a very Conservative, Bible Belt part of the U.S., however, the sickness of being a progressive, lib-nut has invaded a one time Ku Klux Klan celebrated area. Of course they are still here (somewhere), but I believe the core people of this area are more than willing to start a new Revolution should the so called, nice, well behaved Muslims decide to show their right to be heard.
     Anyone with a lick sense knows that those nice little pamphlets don't teach students about Sharia Law, ISIS, 9/11/2001, beating, maiming and murdering of their women with no repercussion because they are Muslims and they live such nice, peace loving, family lives with nothing but Patriotism in their hearts.
    Those nice little pamphlets do not tell students how Christians are murdered and beheaded by Muslims. These pamphlets don't teach the children how the word "Terrorist" is now defined as any Muslim. These nice pamphlets don't tell the children that not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims. Yep, bet they keep that out of the pamphlets!
     So what do we do? I am a grandfather of six. I am very vocal and outspoken against the evil of Islam and Muslims. I will back it up, if needed, with having my grandchildren watch the beheadings perpetrated by those nice Muslims. I will show them pictures, articles and have them watch news footage of how those nice Muslim men feel they have the right to shoot a young girl in the face, beat their women, stone them, and outright murder them under their "Sharia Law". What does that mean for you? As a parent, aunt or uncle, cousin, grandparent or friend, you should take these pamphlets and read them to the children...AFTER YOU TEACH THEM THE TRUTH ABOUT MUSLIMS!!
     If you love your children, you will make them aware of the scourge that is crawling all over the world (worse than cockroaches!). You will teach the the truth about Muslims and inform them it is not being racist to know, believe and take a stand against Islam and Muslims. Not racism...just truth.
     If you are a Christian family, ask yourself and family, "Is our faith in God and Christ strong enough NOT TO DENY THEM BECAUSE YOUR GOVERNMENT OR MUSLIMS THREATEN TO DO TO YOU IF YOU DENY YOUR FAITH?" There are Christians who have already been martyred and continue to be martyred because they refuse to recant their faith in God and Christ. You can't have it both ways. Revelations 3:15 & 16 state: “‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth."
     When your child brings home a pamphlet or book promoting Islam and Muslims, will you be the one who will stand and maintain as it states in Joshua 24:15, "And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
     It is now to the point, the once proud American public schools are breeding grounds for the progressives and lib-nuts. If you don't have a Christian school you feel comfortable with, you can home school your children and purchase the curriculum to teach your children all the academics, maintain a faith based environment, and help reinforce your family's faith. If you continue to leave them in a school system that pushes the progressives and lib-nuts agenda, you are training them to be fodder and will lose them to this evil world.
