I want to thank Bev Mattison for her 3/3/11 response to my letter where she appears amused by my “overactive imagination”.
I may be hoping for too much in overcoming Ms. Mattison’s blind allegiance to a corrupt and violent system and her role as doting sycophant, but let’s compare overactive imaginations.
There is no justification for men to lay a hand on other men, especially when the charges and reports are fabricated and unsupported by evidence. An overactive imagination is one where police “perceive a violent threat” and draw guns on unarmed, passive people before beating them. It does not take an overactive imagination to perceive a man dropping on someone’s neck as being a possible attempt at death or serious bodily harm. I have no doubt that if I were meant to be killed I would be, but there are more subtle ways of inflicting death or injury that give police the appearance of acting “within policy”.
Tell me Ms. Mattison, what does it mean to be “mostly free”? Spoken like a true slave. You take your lesser freedoms and have a nice day. Comparing the tyranny of this government, loosely speaking, with other forms of tyranny does not make this government just. I have natural, unalienable rights that are beyond the scope and authority of government. You apparently prefer men to define your rights.
Please limit your comments to what you know. You parrot conventional wisdom and hearsay. You are another voice in support of violence and corruption.
