OK, I am extremely upset over what happened Friday in McKinney, Texas. I knew nothing about this incident as I guess I’m much too busy to even watch the news these days. I’ve seen several versions of the video, each one making me sicker to my stomach than the last. This officer was out of line. His language towards these kids, totally out of line, and I’m with the other portion of the world, black, white, green and brown in color, that this was racially motivated! If you can’t see that and think otherwise, guess what we’re calling you? Since I have taught my daughters to not name-call, I’ll just say YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE, IT BEGINS WITH AN “R”! “YES, I SAID IT!” And no, I didn’t stutter when I did!
I, as a mother of great kids, am so beyond floored at this blatant abuse of the rights of these children. I cannot believe his language towards them. I cannot believe how he physically abused this young girl, a mere child, in broad daylight, with nary a care that he would be punished. I see no white kids being abused, I see nothing but black kids under attack here, and it breaks my heart. You all should know by now, that if these were disrespectful, unruly kids, you know what side I’d be on, because I have zero tolerance for kids who behave in that manner. My last blog was entitled “DISCIPLINE YOUR KIDS OR LAW ENFORCEMENT WILL DO IT FOR YOU” but this was definitely NOT what I meant.
Again, I am too disheartened to go on and on about this right now. Maybe I will re-visit it later. But, in the meantime, if you haven’t seen this video, let your heartbreak begin.
Take a look…
