Another horrible gun nut incident (this time in Dallas)
A local woman makes a Facebook comment about law enforcement violence nationwide
The woman takes down what she posted after complaints of hurt feelings
The woman apologizes to anyone whose feelings were hurt.
The people whose feelings were hurt wouldn’t accept the apology
The people whose feelings were hurt got all their friends to demand something be done-
The people whose feelings were hurt wanted a kangaroo court and got it in “Podunkville”
Who were these people?
Law enforcement –
Steve Cottrell: You wish you could’ve been there? Me too: I wish you could’ve been not only there, but still sitting behind the council table!
Jeff: Good point, re how we’ll be judging folks’ handling of the issue going forward. Not just Reinette and the Chief and the POA, but also the Mayor. I was disappointed she essentially threw Reinette to the wolves tonight, so to speak (or as I said to Marianna, back in the playground with the bullies), saying it’s all up to her to fix it now. Instead, I hope Mayor Phelps will exercise leadership in shepherding everyone along together, even if some of them kick and scream a while longer. I see that as the only decent way through, and it’ll make us a stronger community in the long run.
