Peace and harmony

Would not a few well-aimed bursts from an AK-47 have stopped most of the looting and vandalism in Ferguson Mo.? I cannot imagine this activity in civilized America continuing for days with nothing being done with any effectiveness toward stopping it. Talk has failed, the governor's rhetoric nor Obama's charm has stopped it. The charlatan, Al Sharpton, has also failed. Most problems worsen when he arrives with his snake oil.

Seems that when a black kills a black, no problem. But let a white kill a black, all hell breaks loose. Sixteen blacks in Chicago killed by blacks this past weekend. Nothing, not newsworthy. Neither our black president nor our black attorney general mentioned this in their focus on a white policeman having to kill a black hoodlum in Missouri. Police records show over 11,000 blacks murdered by blacks within 513 days after Treyvon Martin's death, yet where is/was the uproar?

No place on the planet has been more generous in the fostering of freedom and giving opportunity to all who honestly work for it than America. Yet some continue to create dissension, confusion and roadblocks to these humanistic efforts. Surely there is some form of satisfaction, money, power, something foreign to most but addictive to the few who seem to thrive on creating turmoil and dissent. Will we ever get it right? Will we ever get a country of love, harmony and peace?
