Kweli4Real we pay our government and police to do and take care of the dirty things that we do not want to know about and then we all act shocked and surprised when their actions are reported in the press.
We act surprised and shocked at their actions we will call for hearings knowing full well that after millions are spent and the wrong persons jailed that it will be business as usual. This is not twisted it is our reality. You can rail all you want not living in a democratic state but at the end of the day its the only game in town.
BTW when have we ever lived in a true democracy??
And now a famous quote from A Few Good Men.
Col. Jessep: Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Whose gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And that my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to.
Oh I think I'm gonna cry.
