Honor thy criminals
No this isn't a story from the Onion or some other satire site. I have tO sigh and claim it's real!
Why would anyone in their "right mind" ever want to memorialize a criminal you may be asking? Your guess is as good as mine. Well, our country has been morally and intellectually screwed up for the past 30 years. It seems like the country has been in an intellectual free fall for the past 10 years. For example, take Saint Michael Brown of Ferguson Missouri. People who dare to exercise their brain matter knew that Saint Michael was not a saint no victim, even though warped, racially deceptive and obsessed thinking people tried to portray him as such. This was the real Michael Brown that certain people chose to overlook.
Some people had the nerve to refer to Brown as a "Gentle Giant". Well that image didn't look like he was gently jacking up the owner of that convenience store. Well fast forwarding a few months after the Ferguson racial and media circus and the stores and businesses being looted and destroyed in the name of the gentle giant, the city of Ferguson has decided to do something that can only be described as "delusional and insane" in regards to Mike Brown.
The city is going to "memorialize him" with a plaque!!
The memorial is going to be placed near the site where he died charging at the now former Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson. I have no problem with the family of Michael Brown wanting to avoid dealing with the reality that Mike Brown's past. I just hope that tax dollars from the citizens of Ferguson weren't used in making that plaque. Thankfully the plaque will not be placed on city owned property at the site where Brown died. It will be placed on private property near where it happened. I have to wonder if Michael Brown was shot and killed by another black teen , would this "memorial" still exist in his name? Normally I've seen memorials created to pay respect or tribute to people who have done great deeds in their lives but nothing like this. So should the mayor of Ferguson help to take part in memorizing other criminals as well or should it only be for Mike Brown due to the way he died?
