I COULD CARELESS IF YOUR GREEN OR PURPLE.
If you read above I said........Our sheriff here in AZ will bust you good if you break the law period. Black, white, Mexican or Indian. You break the law, you go to jail!
I like Arizona just fine. It's not perfect, but I have lived here for a long time. Longer than you! I like sheriff Joe. He's controversial, but he's not popular because you break the law you will go to tent city. He had a bunch of drunk stupid collage kids cuffed the other day down by the lake for drinking and driving. A figure that will cost them about 10k each. Good! Maybe they will wise up.
P.S If it makes you happy they were all WHITE! SO no fucki bullshit there.
Do the crime.....do the time.
I agree. Do the time. But don't fucking snap someone's spine or blow their head off. Now, I know you're probably talking about the rioters, but still. What alternative can you offer them? Nothing. So shit has to be burned. Look at the flood. God got so angry with humans, he destroyed his entire creation and rebuilt it. Now, not saying riots are godlike, but we're all in his image, and when situations aren't improving, something drastic has to occur to fucking get it right. Again, bad analogy I might get slammed...but try to make sense of it.
That said, I don't live in Hot AZZ.. No I'm kidding, I actually like Arizona too. I visit. I get everything you're saying, but you're not looking at the big picture. See added comments above.
On top of what's been said, there's a lot of other issues surrounding and abounding, but someone from Arizona just wouldn't understand.
I understand this:
One crime committed is not justification to commit other crimes. I know about hardship and oppression. I lived it myself. You can't justify or play god with VIOLENCE. You have to work it through with reason. Many many times I have been in a situation that unless, I played it cool, I may very well not be here and it was at the hand of cops, bullies and criminals.
I also know this. No matter where I go on this planet I will work my day with RESPECT. Especially, to the guys who have the guns. I say yes sir, no sir and know, if they wanted to they could create a lot more misery for me. I know, because they have!
Like you, my ancestors did not originate from the Americas. Long ago my Great Grandfather sailed on a ship from Denmark at 9 years old. He left his Mom and Dad to come to a new country to escape oppression in his own Country at the time. He moved out west and guess what? Settled right here in Arizona over a 100 years ago, before it was even a state. Had nothing but desire to work and that's what he did.
We all have these stories. Success is built on fairness, respect and trust. I really do hope that people can get back to basics and learn to get along and not be so hateful. We really do have it made to so many in the world! Success for all!!
