It is really only a matter of time

I am not endorsing violence, crime or looting. But it is really only a matter of time until the underclass of this country finally decides to fight back in some fashion. To resort to, in the words of a GOP Senatorial candidate ‘Second Amendment options’ as a response to the kind of systematic oppression that feels more like military occupation.

And it is only a matter of time until the real Libertarians, and grass roots ‘Tea Party’ activists wake up and realize that Ferguson is no different from Ruby Ridge or Waco. A Democracy cannot be considered healthy when the poor go to jail for jaywalking while the rich can engage in financial speculation to the tune of billions of dollars with no criminal penalties. 

When the violent crime rate has declined for 2 decades, while the prison population has more than doubled. Who is in those prisons? Not rich people who can afford lawyers to get off drunk driving charges that result in death. 

Wake up America, this is a chance to pull back the militarized police, send in peaceful negotiators, actual politicians who will listen. Because if you just write off Ferguson as a blip, the violence of a few bad apples, and fail to look at the real problems there will be repercussions. Because just like Waco and Ruby Ridge became rallying cries for a small group of militants Ferguson could become a rallying cry for an ever larger group of people, people with little left to lose (in their eyes at least.)

Midland Trail, a set on Flickr.My main focus for photography, aside from family events, has been the section of the trail that I run on. 
I created this Flickr Album for those pictures. Some Edited, some not. I love this trail for its’ weaving back and forth across Fountain Creek. It is also a bit of a Hobo Highway, so there is an element of interest in the things that are discarded, or have been washed downstream by high water or flooding.
