Got two news articles that got my attention. Wanted to share.
Before doing so I want to be very clear I am NOT defending pedophilia. Don’t go there. Simple people like to use simple rhetoric that concludes anyone talking my position has a vested interest in protecting pedophiles. I have a vested interest in the rule of law to discourage vigilantism. I am too black for that.
I have to be clear on my position on pedophiles because I found myself in sympathy with them. I see many things wrong with the so called pedo hunters.
I am torn wrestling with the irony that our society is okay with calling the cops on children selling lemonade, or calling the cops on people doing nothing wrong but when it comes to actual dangerous threats to society we feel embolden with a camera and a mask. We call the cops on children but run up in the face of a pedophile with a camera and a mask because…
It also goes without saying that taunting or encouraging someone into sucide is deplorable. I don’t think it can be argued that that is not the desired outcome of the pedo hunters. If the motivation was criminal justice then the cops would be on hand, evidence would be turned over to the law enforcement. However the motivation is shame and self sacrifice.
The trend seems to be that these folks hurt the cause more than they help/ In the article it mentions a situation in which the pedo hunter gets beat by one of the men he accused and all the charges get dropped. So even if that man was a pedo and obviously did beat that man up he skates because of the man’s tactics and history.
And of course what happens in the case of mistaken identity. How much patience do you have for a masked youth jumping in your face with a camera streaming to facebook live while screaming “your a pedo!” Will you have the patience to wait for justice through a defamation lawsuit or are you about to commit assault on film?
I am concerned with what I view as entrapment-I have never felt good about role playing as a bad guy to catch bad guys. Even when it is cut and dry acts of terrorism the FBI got a would be terrorist to buy a bomb off them, I am skeptical. Would they have tried to buy that bomb if the agent didn’t present themselves?
At the end I don’t like vigilante justice and I don’t think that this shaming culture we have adopted for the internet is helpfull. Sticking cameras in people’s faces in an effort to extort a desired behavior I think is dangerous.
I am not shocked to see him get handled by a woman. I have only been alive for about 30 or so years but my experience is that men who attack women or have an overt love of guns aren’t usually very good with their hands. It seems he thought the grab was enough. As I get older I am noticing people don’t really want to fight they don’t really want conflict they only want to scare you.
The woman wasn’t even getting in solid punches but even as she is on her toes being grabbed she is able to land punches over and down. Even gets her balance back and is able to damn near pull him on the counter.
All the man in the video did piss poor and are shamefull. We got three men in this video Asian, Black, White. All of em worthless.
The Asian man needs to loose his job, I have worked several fast food jobs (assist manager) You never let customers assault staff the fuck is wrong with you. Grown ass man watching his employee fight off another grown man. In the end he doesn’t even call the cops, he still gives the man his food. So the manager let a customer try to beat up his workers and then gives him food and a smile. But not before the manager allows the customer to assault ANOTHER female employee. So this manager let a customer come in and assault two employees and he still get his happy meal.
The black dude is second only to the white guy in this video as far as damage to the woman. How you gonna hold the woman back? So the person that is being grabbed with another arm restrained, needs another man restraining her from behind? You about to let the dude land punches. Restrain the aggressor. He should have been a man about that. If the manager wanna be a punk you gotta stand up just as a man-as a human. The fuck?
the white dude well you know they gonna say he is mentally ill. They already got his momma on in the media crying for him. The funny thing is the only reason the dude got caught is because he called the cops. The guy who assaulted two workers at their job called the cops on the employee that defended herself. What a joke.
I am noticing a trend the oldest males among us are clinging on to weapons for self respect and power.
