As you may know by now, there have been protests going on nationwide in response to the recent court decision in Ferguson, MO. I find it interesting, though, that so many people are so supportive of a man, Michael Brown, who essentially acted like a thug, and was killed in a heated confrontation with a police officer after having committed robbery. The media then steps in to give the protesters their fifteen minutes of fame while making Brown look like an innocent soul. I recall one particular protester on the news carrying a sign saying something along the lines of "The cops are supposed to protect us, no kill us." So then, why does a thug like Brown garner so much respect and attention from these protesters and the media, but millions of innocent unborn children get the silent treatment from these same groups? For some reason, people in our society find it perfectly acceptable to abort millions of babies every year, and yet, time and again, they cry foul when a cop ends up shooting and killing a criminal. I am not saying that deadly force should be a cop's first option. I am saying, however, that I find it very unsettling that society seems to care more about the well-being of criminals than for the lives of future generations who have not done anything to anyone because they have not even been born yet.
One last thing before I start getting a bunch of hate comments about someone being stuck with a child they do not want to raise. Have you ever heard of a thing called adoption? There are plenty of people out there who would love to have a child and will gladly take an otherwise unwanted baby into their home.
