Warming up. Learning to operate in WP, a vexing task. But I’ve managed to post both an article (See USA – THE OLIGARCHY) and the first draft of the intro to my essay on self sabotage under PUBLICATIONS. So have at it dear readers. I’m looking for my voice. Maybe you can help me find it.
A devastating video reveals the outright murder of an African American by a cop in S. Carolina. Of course it happens all the time. They just don’t talk about it. What kind of cold hearted nut case could fire eight shots into the back of a fleeing, unarmed man? One who absolutely expected to get away with it. But technology seems to be altering the landscape according to seasoned observers like Connie Rice (http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-connie-rice-20150408-story.html#page=1) And in case you are skeptical about the craven attempts at coverup by local officials, compare the official statements about the shooting before the video was discovered. (http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2015/04/07/3644189/everything-police-said-walter-scotts-death-video-showed-really-happened/) This horrendous pack of lies would have passed for the truth but for the inconvenient filming of the incident. (see Delusional Framework)
I don’t believe in the technological solution to anything, but this is a refreshing turn of events, though in tragic circumstances.
