Today I had every intention of sharing with you a Currently post and a recipe for cookie dough balls but with all that is going on, I am not really feeling that today.

My thoughts…

I am saddened by the events that are currently taking place.

It is a shame that the numbers are growing well beyond 500 and yet America is totally unconcerned that this is happening.

As the mother raising a teenage son in America that looks so much like those that are having life stolen from them by the very ones called to protect them…scares me.

I am angry that dirtbag cops are robbing people, regardless of innocence or guilt, of their due process. Of their right to go home to their families if innocent and of their right to a judge and jury of their peers if guilty. It disgusts me that certain cops have taken the law into their own hands to be the judge, jury, and ultimately the executioner.

Are there good cops in America that wear the badge with honor and dignity? Absolutely! But there are also some that do not and those should be called out.

It’s becoming a time when I’m not so sure if its best for me to call a cop when I’m in trouble or just take my chances with being robbed, harassed, raped, or anything else. My thinking now is that I may be better off taking my chances with the one that is committing the crime against me for fear that one or both of us could be on the receiving end of a crooked cops barrel. Its a sad day in American when law-abiding citizens, such as myself, have to make choices like this, but unfortunately until others begin to speak out…this is the risk we have to take.

RIP Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

These are just my thoughts…

    It saddens me what is going on right now. Especially as the wife and mother of a black man and boy. It’s not fair that they can be wrongly judged by others that can harm them and get away with it.
    I also hate it that people are attacking and killing innocent police officers. I am not for violence. I wish that there was more love in the world. Luckily, I know that most people are good. However, these hateful people are causing so much unrest and fear.

      I totally agree! I am not a fan of violence…period. But with so much unrest in America you cannot help but be concerned for family members.
