Crime

               All sorts of crime will be with us for the foreseeable future. There are many reasons that this have come to the forefront and will stay. I will write about a few reasons simply because 1) to give all the reasons will take a tome and 2) I surely will leave out a lot although I will be trying to include all of it. Therefore, I will write about a few reasons crime is upon us and will remain, even if we try to stop it.

               First, let me say that crime have been a part of human nature since the beginning (does Abel and Cain ring a bell?). Go further back (can’t go too far) and it started with Eve and that conniving snake, better know as the Devil (Satan). The crime was attempted to be covered up by saying ‘am I my brother’s keeper’, and the rest is history. This have been happening ever since and will continue. Be honest with yourself and don’t think crimes can be stopped.

               Recently, within the past eighteen months, murder have risen to a level as great as to what it was in the seventies. Crime, back then, started going down when we, as a nation, started getting real tough on crime, especially murder. True, some people were (are) convicted falsely. However, that is another story because there are very glaring reasons why. Also, one of the reasons for both acts, like I said in other blogs, politics control everything, good or bad politics, politics did it.

               There has been a great push on restructuring incarceration institutions and the justice system in general. Many people want a softer system because people are human and the majority deserve a second, third chance (some get more chances). After cameras became the norm all anger, finger pointing, and suspicions fell on policing. As in any society, there are good people and there are bad people, as it is in any police force. There are more good cops than there are bad but when the bad cops do their dirty deed, all cops are blamed.

               There is a call for open policing, accountability, etc. and most of it have made the policeman’s work harder, which mean fewer crimes are solved. Of the crimes that get solved, go to trial, and convictions are brought, the punishment is becoming softer. Most of the time it is only a slap on the wrist. And not all punishment is the same for all for the same crime. It becomes evident that because of the political status of the judge, the wealth status of the person convicted, the political status of the person convicted, the color of the skin, which state the trial is in, the political status of the state, etc. means the amount of punishment, if any.

               Because the police are being called out on everything, cops are, most times, too cautious when confronting someone, especially a Black person. This can be detrimental for the police as well as the person being confronted. This is one of the reasons police hiring is bad and maintaining good policemen is hard. They are over worked, underpaid, and not appreciated.

               I could go on and on about crime, but I have neither the space nor time. Before you say yes or no seriously think about this and why crime is getting worst. There is a lot more to this and more honest research is needed by you before any preaching or action.

I’ve Said It Before

Well, the country has gotten an exceedingly rare one-two punch from two hurricanes this week and I, for one, am not surprised. I have talked about this happening for some time, especially in my other blog (www.faithingodministries.net). I could explain why but I have written about this for a long time and have explained this repeatedly. I will let you meet your due because, as it is said, ’you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink’.

The present administration, taking the lead from their President, does not believe in science, unless the President says they may, does not believe in medical experts, unless they concur what the President says, and never mention any form of religion unless it suits their agenda. I know many people will say I am wrong, but I have my mind and eyes open and I am not afraid to say I am wrong when I am. However, the great majority of President Trump’s supporters (enablers) will never admit they are wrong, nor will they admit he is wrong. As he idolizes himself, they idolize him.

I have many times said history repeats itself, and, if you have read history, the world has been through this a few times before. It is not the same exact way but similar and it is not going to stop. We can slow it down, maybe, but we will greatly suffer if we continue to put our head in the sand and think this President will solve our dilemma when he is only thinking of himself. There are his supporters that want their old prejudicial ways, thinking their skin color made the world a better place when it took all peoples to do it.

It took slaved Black people, Latinos, and Asians to make this land, which was taken from the Native Americans, what it is today. It took the brains and technology of many peoples, especially the Black people, to build and fine tune everything. Because of the inequity of multitudes of prejudicial people, we are beginning to see more and more bad things happen around the world.

Floods, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, typhoons, ice cap melting, fires, pandemics, and much more is happening. Read the Bible and history books (the Bible is a history book) and all of it is written there. It will not get better; it will get worst and we can only blame ourselves. Our President does not read, at least like he should, and he think he knows better than anyone about everything. He believes that and his supporters believe that. I, for one, do not.

If this President continues with four more years of chaos, we, as the United States of America, is lost forever and we cannot fault anyone but ourselves. More poverty, pandemics, war, chaos, you name it is our destiny. We cannot and will not survive. Voting him out is the only hope that is left for us plus a strong faith in God. Beware, there will be all manner of cheating, and intimidation for him to win. Vote as early as you can and tell your family and friends to do so also. I have said it before and I will say it again, we will be in more trouble if he is not voted out.

Also beware of other people, attempting to carry out the President’s agenda, coming from other states and cities, infiltrating peaceful demonstrations, causing trouble. These are the people that assault, loot, burn, damage things, and even murder. I said it before and I say it again, wake-up, vote and pray for a better day.

 

Cast The First Stone

Every time a person attempts to elevate him or herself into a higher position someone comes out of the background and attempts a prevention into that higher position. The reasoning is not if the person is telling the truth or is lying but why do they have a time lapse of years. If the allegation is a matter that is so egregious that the person should not be considered for the position, why the many years between the event and the reporting of the incident?
I do not understand an incident happening twenty or thirty years ago before being reported as if it happened yesterday. It may have been wrong then however, thirty years later should have no reference to today unless it is dealing with murder or something as bad. An incident condoned years ago have not changed today. It is still condoned.
During our younger years all of us have done a bad thing or two. Let those that have never sinned cast the first stone. All of us have something that we are not proud of, whether it is recent or old. As I look at myself from years ago, I see things that I would have done differently. However, I would not want someone holding that against me, especially when there was a chance to hold it against me twenty or thirty years ago. Hold it against me, or someone else, if it is recent or a short time ago.
Now the woman that is bringing allegations against former Vice-President Biden says she did bring harassment allegations against Biden, but she said she never said anything about sexual harassment. Why not then? Why now? Why wasn’t it bought out when he was vetted for Vice-President? Why wasn’t it bought out when he was vetted for the Senate? Why is it that the present Secretary of State will not research and release the archived papers about the situation? There are too many whys.
I go back to, he without sin cast the first stone. There are many people that say he should not run for office because there is the question and that is all that is needed. If so, there would be no one that could run for any office that requires vetting. It all depends on how egregious the offense. Is it an offense if it was accepted at the time? She says the offense is not in the report that was made. Why is it an offense now? Why wasn’t it reported then? Why wait almost thirty years? So many questions.
Then I look at the present President and the allegations against him. Some were proven and some were also recorded. He was still put into office and some of his offenses are worse than Biden’s. This is called a double standard and what is good for the goose is good for the gander (an old saying). Like I said for the last Presidential election, I will take the better of the two and Biden is not anywhere as bad as Trump.
Cast your stones if you think you never have to worry about being vetted for a past offense. An offense that occurred five years ago, maybe ten years ago, I would have to look at it but an offense that occurred almost thirty years ago is out of consideration for me. Unless it was murder, gross assault, rape, drugs, or something close to those, then there is a problem.
