You can be certain your old blues hippie Glenn would have sent this when I was 18 had it been around and the info. and web available then, especially in that my best friend from 3rd grade up fit the criteria, and since I have been an active jail/prison chaplain doing concerts and interacting for years in that capacity. Yep, the link is a “paidpost”, and from the New York -Leftist- Times. Yeah, I care about victims and law enforcement peeps just as much as I do jail and prison inmates. SomeOne I follow commanded me to love my enemies no matter who they may be in any particular moment. This little link here- if you have either guts or heart to read it even if you -never- watch the movie… this “you prob’ly a bleedin’ heart not TOUGH on crime idiot Kaiser” white boy (me) happens to believe neither skin color nor crime is good cause to hammer people. Now, if you figure “those people” have all earned it, all I can say is don’t EVER wonder when you face God on judgment day for reaping what you’ve sown. Mercy and grace? You DO know grace means “un-earned” favor, right? Could it be time to study these terms and ask what you and I and our elected officials as well as corporate wealthy know about ’em? Left or Right, take five and simply read, really, just consider what’s written in this piece. Blow past the graphics, pictures, don’t even bother with the film insert, keep emotions out of it best you can and simply -read-. From all I’ve studied and experienced over my lifetime, from all I know from friends in law enforcement, from my own jail and prison and 12 Step and rehab activities, 99 percent of what is being stated here is fact, not politics, not feelings-based, not mere perspective nor “false news”.
As always, thanks for stopping by. -Glenn
