Blaming Game

The Sunday morning talk show could have aptly beeb titled “The Blame Show.”Politicians and media members culled the reasons why the blame fell on the protests, the police or certain politicians. There was little rational discourse about where we as a society need to go to lessen the tensions that exist and build communities where mutual respect and trust florish. The villain theories may stoke the emotional juices but they will harvest little in the way of solutions. Labeling the police or people of any racial or ethnic group will lead to nothing but continued tragedies. The morgues are too full of cops and kids and throwing fuel onto the fire produces only more funerals and empty places around the table. Our shock and sadness at the recent deaths must lead to community changes that protect cops and citizens alike.
