Ferguson, MO Commentary 8-19-14

The situation in Ferguson has, as usual, become totally politicized by the left/right spectrum. The involvement of Sharpton, Holder, and others has automatically tainted many right-wingers against Brown, the protesters, and the looters. 559759_10200543414530924_654530435_n

The racial makeup of the individuals Michael Brown and the police officer who shot him has automatically tainted many left-wingers against the police. 

Do not let this be so. Remove the bias from the situation entirely. Violation of inalienable rights is not a partisan issue. EVEN IF the officer acted on his OWN personal biases does not justify applying biases as an observer of the situation as a means to solve/remedy the problem created by bias in the first place. Put aside the blinders and look at what has happened from the perspective of an objective individual.

1. Was there excessive force in the death of Michael Brown? It doesn’t matter if Brown is white, black, hispanic, or other background. It doesn’t matter if the cop was white, black, hispanic, or other background. Was the individual who shot the other individual justified under the circumstances? If yes, then there are still other issues to be dealt with below. If no, then a full and proper investigation needs to be completed and charges need to be brought and still other issues remain outstanding and need to be dealt with.

2. Has the police force used excessive force against the peaceful protesters and has the protesters constitutionally protected rights been violated? It doesn’t matter if there are looters. It doesn’t matter if they are black, white, hispanic or another group. The racial background of the police force is irrelevant. It doesn’t matter if the protesters are organizing because of the Michael Brown shooting or because they like cupcakes. Peaceful protesters rights are not subject to the action of others. You cannot take away constitutional rights.

3. Should the police be demilitarized? Has the militarization of police contributed to excessive force, shoot first ask questions later, and poor treatment/violations of rights of citizens?

4. Has there been violation of private property rights via looting/rioting? It doesn’t matter the racial makeup of the looters. It doesn’t matter if the looting/rioting was in response to Michael Brown’s death or not. If private property rights have been violated then the perpetrators needs to be held accountable as appropriate under the law.

We cannot say that Michael Brown’s death was justified because he (allegedly) robbed a store or assaulted an officer THEREFORE the police had the authority to violate peaceful protesters rights.

We cannot say that Michael Brown’s death was attributable to racism therefore looting is excusable.

We cannot say that the police should be demilitarized and therefore violent protests are acceptable or the officer who shot Brown “MUST” have been on a power trip and is guilty of murder.

All of these issues need to be evaluated individually and on their own merits. This isn’t about being a “good Republican” or a “Good Democrat” or a “Good Libertarian.”

It’s about being a human being with a vested interest in the protection of inalienable rights.
