Exactly! The government keeps the people divided. Being free requires some responsibility so it is scary to people not accustomed to walking through reality without holding big brother’s hand.

A kid doing what a kid does. While having a present and attentive dad may have prevented all this is a likelihood, there are no guarantees it would have made any difference.
I’ll reserve some of the blame for the trigger-happy police officers who wheeled up within a few feet of the kid and unloaded on him before anyone could think. It looks more like a drive by than a justifiable police shooting.

I’m starting a gofundme to pay Gene Wilder to repeat his classic performance at the white house on Zero’s last day:
This was a tragedy. No amount of money will replace their lost son. There are no winners in this story, the family, the police officer and apparently the taxpayers will all suffer now because of a young mans foolhardy decisions and a foolish response to those decisions by two police officers and a dispatcher.
It’s too bad we are all so eager to kill each other.
I can afford to do whatever I want to. My integrity is worth a lot more to me than 4 years of The Witch.
YOU cannot afford for me to not vote for your guy. That proves to me that you already know he is a loser.

I remember the great Oregon massacre. Millions and millions have been violently murdered in Colorado since they legalized, no doubt millions more will be killed soon. People are tearing each other apart; and don’t get me started on the sexual deviancy directed towards innocent young white women by thems colored folks thanks to the Marijuana.
Too bad the Government creates a black market for a harmless plant by making it senselessly illegal, making it appealing as a source of financial gain by deviants and criminals.

Your post is full of sarcastic micro-aggression and I’m offended. How can I find a safe space in the midst of such hostility?
Lol. Ony mindless pods get safe spaces. We're poop out of luck.

My elegant grandmother was a curious woman to me as a young man. She did many things that I considered strange. Things like, saving any piece of yarn longer than a span and every piece of metal that had no apparent purpose. My grandmother would grow twice as much food as she needed in half the space she could have used. Her house was always spotless, everything in it’s place. My grandmother distinctly remembered “the great depression” and until the day she died, and lived her life prepared for another. The collapse we are about to witness will rock the unsuspecting sheep to their core, those that survive will never forget.
Our heavily Father made us stewards of the place.
Like He owns it and gave us management positions.
You respect the family jewels.
You respect the planet.
You do your work as unto the Lord. He's the owner and CEO, and our Father...we work to honor Him alone....nothing else. He is God alone, we are His loving servants and His children.
Jesus showed us that a life of humble honor is highly valued.
Remember "This is my son...whom I am well pleased."
He will say that about you some day...and I am going sing of great works too.
I will make a song telling of my brothers and sisters deeds and sing in the highest places in your honor, and the glory of the Lord as our strength!
"Everything bad in the world comes from or is tied to Christianity."
Actually "Everything bad in the world comes from, or is tied to PRIDE"!!
PRIDE in race, PRIDE in sexism, PRIDE in finance and business, PRIDE in Political Activism; well you I think you get my point. I know satan does and he uses it to his glory, not God's.

You’re right about the multiple cars and taxes. I certainly don’t know these people and I would assume they are great people. I’m just finding more and more in this life that what is done privately, locally and personally that makes ripples that change the world.

Something to consider: Will dividing $30,000 between several charities, (or even giving one charity all of it) do more good than giving that car tax-free to a needy working family?
Be careful where you give your money, lots of charities have wealthy administrators and poor service.
I’m learning more and more that if you want to really help, you have to focus on individuals on a one-on-one basis. You have to actually sit down and talk to the Dad working two jobs and struggling to pay his bills thanks to his new “affordable” health insurance premiums. You have to spend some time learning that one single mom has been hopping from church to church collecting charity and using her child-support checks to get drunk and another is living off cold coffee and table scraps from her waitress job so her kids don’t go hungry.
It takes real compassion and care to change an evil world.
It most decidedly will do more good. Giving a new car to a struggling family, is handing them an annual tax and insurance burden that they currently can't afford already obviously.
If for some reason you think a vehicle is the best 'vehicle' to get them up and going, then use the 30k to buy several 1500 to 2k used cars, have them checked and tuned up nice, gifted over, and able to be insured for minimum liability and next to no property tax.
I do community service regularly, and I'm betting these people do too. I seriously doubt they are unaware of real compassion, nor devoid of it; and all the time and consideration that goes along with it.

I’m having a hard time trying to figure out why two men of an underprivileged color, who’s whole existence has been one of struggle and hardship from the oppression and privilege of the white man were each driving $60,000 or more vehicles. Reparations?
It sounds like there is a lot of back-story to the murder that needs to be explored.

While your there you might consider the benefits of starting a small business in a state that will protect your right to succeed or fail in the market on your own merit and not the whims and wills of others.
