My obligatory thoughts on Ferguson…because I’m a blogger and have to comment on everything, even when I don’t know jack about the situation.
I have two thoughts, maybe three.
My first thought on this matter has always been that if you rob a store and assault a police officer who tries to stop you after said robbery, your chances of getting shot go up exponentially.
I haven’t written about this because that thought alone was insufficient information to base an article on.
That brings me to my second thought.
The prosecutor making the announcement said that the grand jury investigation would be released to the public at the end of his news conference.
Therefore everyone waited to carefully read all that information before coming to a conclusion and taking action on the conclusion reached.
People responded as they had already decided to respond long ago and the evidence be damned.
That is the way we deal with all things political and theological these days.
We are not better for doing so…
My third thought is that the divisions among us are deep and evil…and the church can and should take the lead in fostering dialog and seeking solutions.
We can do that as soon as we learn to talk to each other…
