This is the biggest problem in America today. [View all]


I do not know how to make a small, fancy link (this one has to be copied and pasted), but I really wanted to post this. (...thanks guys, I guess little old ladies on the internet is another problem in this country, but easily fixed!)

Over the years I see these stories here and there, but, this page really makes it clear that this is not just a huge problem, it is...well, what better way to say it than overkill.

This page shows that it is past time to end the drug war. Counties and cites are too reliant on the money that brings, and they are becoming more and more brazen with killing and maiming citizens.

Now would be a good time for the good cops out there to step out from behind that thin blue line and say enough is enough. Cops should be there to help communities and solve the actual crimes, not create new ones.

I hope the death of Michael Brown was the thing that changed where we are going in this area.

I cannot wish enough peace to all the families affected by this. Something has to change.

It is said that there are more people killed by police in America than those that were killed in the Iraq/Afghanistan wars.

We need to be working on protecting the environment and helping those in countries worse off than our own. How can we do that successfully when we have this type of thing going on?
