An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth! That seems to be the nature of man. There is never an ending to the violence, so long as that is considered the solution.
Ferguson is on fire after the Grand Jury decision. The violent protestors can't even claim their reaction is 'an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth'. It is simply hooliganism that will bring great harm to those who honestly believe the Grand Jury did not weigh the evidence fairly. It justifies the use of physical and even lethal force from the law enforcement department to protect life and property.
Our system provides recourse for appeal through request for Federal investigation. Like it or not, we are a United States of America and our constitution empowers the Federal government to intervene, if evidence shows inequitable protection of human rights and property by State or Local governments. It also protects State and Local governments from armed rebellion from whatever source.
The community of Ferguson doesn't need outside agitators, politicians, or, religious leaders. What they need is level headed presentation from both white and black leaders, from within the community. The term 'level headed' excludes the radical extremists of either racial or religious leaders.
Common sense and history reveals that injustices occur. Whites in black communities suffer from prejudice and blacks in white communities suffer from prejudice. Racial and religious prejudice is evident in most every society.
Survival is a natural instinct in every living organism. We, humans, are taught, by our experience and the advice of other's experiences, to be wary of others who are different from ourselves. If we learn to tolerate each other and overlook minor infractions or differences we find ourselves being able to share and enjoy relationships that benefit all of us. Sibling rivalry is a natural instinct. If not controlled, it can develop into prejudice that destroys a family. Control can come from several sources. Other siblings, parents, and peers can intervene. Society can intervene in the racial prejudice and violence that is present in Ferguson and around the country.
