Today the New York Times wrote an article about Michael Brown. In the article they said Brown was “no angel”. Show me an angel among us. They chronicled his aspirations to be a rapper and even his consumption of alcohol and drugs. No it does not sound like the life of an angel but it does sound like the life of a teen. No not all teens do the things Brown did but when he was shot by the police did they know then that he was no angel? We’re not called to be angels. We are citizens of the United States, and some of us try to be model citizens but even that does not ensure your safety. The media is looking for a reason to explain what many people believe is unreasonable, but the he is no angel defense is simply not going to cut it.
Who are the angels among us?
