The President of the United States had to be goaded to denounce neo-Nazis and white supremacist.  It took him more than 48-hours to respond and he barely crossed the line to get it said, it was clear those words didn’t come from his heart, rather a PR savvy speech writer. 

Around the country Americans expected a well thought out statement to promote cohesiveness among the citizenry. 

Instead, the organizations were satisfied with what he didn’t say in his first announcement.   Racists Andrew Anglin went so far to say, “he loves us.”  Anglin made the statement on his racists blog before getting a shut off notice from GoDaddy.com. 

Many believe this is the response Trump was looking for in his refusal to name the organizations who are causing problems nationwide.

“Bereft of reason,” were the words used by head of state of North Korea to describe the US dictator Donald Trump.    Never before have I heard another country’s leader refer to the leader of the United States as deranged.  This is a new low. 

This incident occurred in response to a threat made by the President of the US just days ago.  It was an open threat to the North Korean government.   In addition, in response to his threat to N. Korea to cause an “end of its regime.”  The Asian Nation State media says four Hwasong-12 rockets are scheduled to pass over Japan and land in the sea 17 miles of the coast of US territory Guam, and action that was awaiting Kim Jong Un’s signature.

Michelle Carter in 2014 sent text messages to her boyfriend urging him to commit suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning. On Thursday a judge ordered her to spend 15 months behind bars.

Conrad Roy III, choking, got out of his truck which was filling with carbon monoxide fumes while on the telephone with Carter.  She said to him get back in the cab an she remained on the phone to listen to him die. This is the same justice system that ordered Lil Kim to spend a year and a day in prison and fined $50,000 for allegedly lying about some things she saw.

This article is about Michelle Carter, however these types of cases highlight the disparities in the criminal justice system and it should frustrate every American. The question: Can words cause a suicide? Words change the fate of all of our lives all the time and we all know it.

Op/Ed

 

Allegations of police officers planning drugs have been a long time complaint in minority communities in the United States.   In some cities this has led to oversight commissions, special investigative bodies, but in large nothing ever comes of such complaints. 

Since the rash of unarmed American’s being shot down by police has prompted departments to employ body cameras, departments nationally have excited the prosecutor’s office to do something about it and most simply ignore it.   

Recently, in the city of Baltimore States attorney Marilyn Mosley, has identified 123 cases associated with officers mishandling evidence based on body-camera footage.   She has said 34 of the cases under review will be dismissed and the others will remain under review.

Rumors of the president of the US running dysfunctional businesses have persisted and Trump detractors are citing a revolving door white house as more of the same. 

Anthony Scaramucci, a former hedge fund executive was released from for the position of Communications director on Monday as turmoil continue on Pennsylvania Avenue.  People close to the president deny dysfunction, and insist there is no chaos at all.  But the dismissals are telling a different story.   Scaramucci took over as the White House Communications director or was scheduled to in August, but was fired before his tenure began.

A few other people who have departed from the White House are:

 

Reince Priebus, the White House chief of staff.
