POLICE -- COMPLETE REMOVAL ROOT AND BRANCH --
SHANE, A '50's COWBOY MOVIE
Errant Cowboy Portland Police Officer Ronald Frashour is in a way-station before he is fired. I believe it is called Administrative Leave.
But, I know about cowboy police and I have a solution.
KNOW -- This I know, because I have studied carefully the SHANE movie. Alan Ladd does not shoot people in the back. Jack Palance and his compadres shoot people in the back, or try to. Ronald Frashour shot Aaron Campbell in the back. Portland Police Officer Ronald Frashour shot Aaron in the back and had more than a moment’s reflection on whether or not to do that. Carefully, aim at the back of a human being and squeeze the trigger of that assault rifle. At an unarmed man. Neither Ladd nor Palance was unarmed.
This I know. When I played cowboys and Indians as a kid, I never, never shot anybody in the back…not even my older brother, but ohhhh so sorely tempted. We were taught only complete cowards shot people in the back. I went to school on the SHANE movie, but that was before Frashour’s time. Times are different.
SOLUTION -- Very simple. First, take away ALL of their toys. All of them except their protective vests. Take away their NINJA Turtle outfits. Quit painting their cars that sinister black. Take away those sprays, hair curlers and electric devices.
It is time to start over with our police departments across the nation. A clean slate from top to bottom. There is no fixing those thugs we have hired and there is no fixing the mentality of those that did the hiring. A clean slate. A complete do over. Top to Bottom.
We need to hire management and employees in our police departments that have empathy. Empathy is what was missing in Nazi Germany. Empathy is the imagination necessary to put yourself in other people's shoes. Police expect us to have empathy for the challenges of their profession, yet they have no empathy for us and our challenges in everyday life.
We are going to continue to take and post pictures of their excess until we remove this entire poisoned tree, root and branch.
