" Shoot The Mayor"

This is why I always say some of these people need to start being prosecuted for sedition, on both the local and federal level. You let them walk around long enough like a ticking time bomb. At some point they're going to explode. Harming those people around them. People have the right to freedom of speech, but you can't yell fire in a crowded building. If your personal freedoms impose on the reasonable rights of others in the community. You don't have the right to hold civility hostage. This idea that people can be as disruptive as they have the nerve to be, has gotten out of hand. Charles Lee "Cookie" Thornton is a prime example of a situation that should have been nipped in the bud. When I say nipped in the bud, I mean never allowed to get a reputation. It's like those people bragging about having done time behind bars. This wasn't even the second time, they had experienced his antics. One of my favorite sayings from the president, would've worked just fine in the town of Kirkwood Missouri. "We don't negotiate with terrorist."

When I heard what his brother said when they interviewed him. I was thinking to myself, " okay his brother is off his rocker too." To make matters worse than that. I heard their mother speak today. It's as though they think he was justified. The mother echoed the statements of her son. I don't know exactly what it was, but it couldn't have been that bad. There was something about 150 tickets he had received, but it hadn't killed him. We can't say that about his latest encounter. Talking about Charles showed them, doesn't amount to a hill of beans. Had he asked someone other than his immediate family. They would've advised him that rushing the council meeting shouting " shoot the mayor." Wouldn't change anything, except the date of his own death.

In my view, it is great that you, “commentaries,” think very critical about the actions of other people and the consquences that their actions have. The statement, “shoot the mayor,” might sound a little bit radical but sometimes one have to be very radical to achieve “good goals,” as Mahatma Ghandi and Ernestor “Che” Guevara already knew in earlier times.

You have touched on two points. Glad you mentioned both. The first being "Commontaries". I am aware of it's spelling. For those that are unfamiliar with what I've done. Go to link:

I sincerely doubt this will inspire a tidal wave of extremism against local governments.This will be just another black man that lost his life senselessly.

Just because you can influence people doesn't make you right. Adolph Hitler influenced a lot of people too, but did that make him good?
