BENEFIEL: What is the Department of Justice up to?Posted by Deb Lea Benefiel on May 16, 2015
It can be said some people think too much. I have been told I do. My favorite philosophy professor told me not to worry about it. He said “those who say you think too much probably don’t think enough”. Those words resonate in my head on a regular basis and I thank God I was fortunate and honored enough to be one of his students.
I mention this in passing to emphasize how important it is to think for ourselves about virtually everything these days. We cannot allow the main stream media or talking heads to do our thinking for us and must trust our gut feelings. This brings me to the subject of this opinion article which is what is happening that we are missing in regards to recent events surrounding Ferguson, Mo. and Baltimore, Md.
Since the several months following Ferguson, our nation has been under scrutiny by other nations as well as the UN governing body as having “rogue” police in every city, town and village in America. Of all places, even Iran has weighed in on our Law Enforcement. Is there anyone out there who is feeling the least bit outraged by this?
After the fuse has been lit, enter Al Sharpton injecting his warped brand of “equality and justice” to further fuel the fire of unrest. Honorable and loving people of God such as the Reverend Alveda King should be the voice of reason, sanity and clarity in these times but sadly, nobody is listening.
Does it not seem strange that Al Sharpton pays regular visits to the White House and has gone on record to state he assists President Obama in decision making for our country? Mr. Sharpton visited the White House before the Ferguson riots, and again afterward. He then visited the White House before the indictments in Baltimore and made his appearance with the mayor just before said indictments were announced. He acted as bodyguard and spokesman for Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who also happens to be the present secretary of the DNC. Being an elected public official, Ms. Rawlings-Blake should always speak for herself.
I am not saying the Baltimore officers are not responsible for what ensued and ultimately resulted in the death of Freddie Gray, they may well have been. The problem is those six officers have already been tried and convicted by the very people who have sworn to find the truth through our judicial system.
The point of all this comes down to public opinion and being manipulated to believe the worst with very little evidence. Has anyone else noticed a steady increase in the amount of “bad cop” videos that are springing up on social media sites? There are so many these days it is becoming the norm. There is never any explanation or follow up information for these videos and people, even conservatives who supported Law Enforcement Officers until recently, are now allowing these videos to change their attitudes. They are making comments about how “out of control” law enforcement is.
Putting all of this together takes some thinking and paying attention to subtleties which have slowly surfaced. There have also been comments made which tie all this together, if one is willing to go there. I am.
Al Sharpton’s latest outrageous call to action should have resonated as something to be very wary of. Instead, it has gone largely unnoticed. He is calling for a national police force to be overseen by the Department of Justice which is now headed by Loretta Lynch who has been described as Eric Holder on steroids. Is anybody connecting the dots with me?
We need the Justice Department to step in and take over policing in this country. In the 20th century, they had to fight states’ rights in — to get the right to vote. We’re going to have to fight states’ rights in terms of closing down police cases. – Al Sharpton
It might be better to stop falling for what one allows the MSM to tell them and start thinking for oneself. We are being herded into total anarchy because we are falling in line with the rest of the sheep. As with so many other Executive Orders, it will happen and nobody will know until it is too late.
Please stop being so quick to judge based on limited information and start asking more questions and looking beyond the obvious.
