If you call someone a subhuman mongrel should you apologize? That’s a quite a statement to make and it takes committment to make such a statement. Ted Nugent hates the president and his statements go beyond a policy debate. His comments show rage and disrespect. So why would he apologize for expressing his true feelings? He is apologizing to the people in his party who might be offended not to the president. We live in the age of apology. You make the most ourageous statent and then you apologize for it. You got your message out there and if you offended those associated with your cause simply release an apology it is sadly how our system works.

The other day I had an intelligent conversation with someone on Twitter. We had opposing viewpoints, but it never got crazy. The Twitter person contended that good behavior could save your life. He said that if the boys had cut the music down and kept it down Michael Dunn would have never shot at them. I consider that quite the stretch and I said that I did not believe that good behavior was a lifesaver. What do you think? Is this a case of young people acting badly or was this a case of a trigger happy middle aged man feeling disrespected? Earlier today I posted on the Adrian Broadway case. She and some of her friends egged a car, and the owner came out and shot at them as they attempted to escape. Broadway was killed. Is bad behavior ever an excuse for killing? Who determines what is good behavior? Share your thoughts.
Adrian Broadway was killed over the weekend. She and a group of friends egged a car owned by Willie Noble. He shot at the car as they tried to escape and Broadway was killed. Why haven’t we heard more about this case? Why haven’t we heard more about Noble? both the victim and the shooter were black. Where is the outrage? Read the linked story and share your thoughts.
Michael Dunn was offended by the loud music being blasted by teenagers. He described the music as “thug music”. Tonight he was found guilty of 4 of the 5 charges that he faced. A few weeks ago a man shot another man in a movie theater because the man was texting. We can’t forget Trayvon Martin who was killed for being in the wrong neighborhood. What do these cases have in common? All of them stem from someone being disturbed by the behavior of someone else. Is “thug music”, texting or going to a 7/11 an offense worthy of death? The answer is No, but the fact that 3 people were murdered because someone else was offended by their behavior. These cases are on the national stage, but this kind of thing happens everyday, but it does not garner national attention. When did we gain this collective trigger hair temper? Share your thoughts.
Michael Dunn has been found guilty on four of the five charges. He was not found guilty on the first degree murder charge. Dunn will probably die in prison, but the state will probably retry him on the first degree murder charge.
