Another Shooting of Police Officers, I Can’t Do This Anymore [OPINION]
Tears are streaming down my face as I type this worthless drivel for you to read.
SOMETHING must BE DONE about gun violence in America.
We have another shooting of police officers, this time in Baton Rouge, Louisiana this Sunday morning.
I don't want your guns, the government doesn't want your guns.
Let's just stop shooting other people and cops. I mean. Wake up people,(*) this is beyond the pail. And it's been growing for a number of years, I find this latest incident and others, too numerous to mention each, UNACCEPTABLE.
We have a problem in this great nation, yet we refuse to even acknowledge it.
GUNS, OUR LOVE AND MISUSE OF THEM
'The only thing that will stop a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun.'
That is the biggest pile of excrement (*) ever said to the American public, and the Dallas shooting proved it.
I'm sorry for the language and disjointed nature of this but, this is really not good. Yet without somebody saying something, it WILL CONTINUE.
What will YOU do to end it?
On Wednesday at 8am I will be speaking with representatives of the Bozeman Police Department. Obviously, this morning's events adds a further dimension to the pending conversation.
I, as a broadcaster, just really can't do this anymore -- Cover mass shooting, shootings of Law Enforcement officers. I just can't, we can not allow this to become a weekly story.
YOU as listeners, talk to me about American Exceptionalism; Where are we exceptional on this matter?
Here is my recent conversation with Executive Director of the Montana Racial Equity Project, Judith Heilman discussing the shootings in Baton Rogue, St. Paul and Dallas as well as issues including racial tensions and gun issues on the 1450 KMMS AM Morning Show.
