The Brooklyn Police

The Blame Train Arriving On Track #2

What a horrible event it is that 2 police officers were shot while sitting in their police car.

As appalling as that killing is, it does not stop the politically minded from their agendas of assigning blame. Whatever problems we face will not be ameliorated by finger pointing.

The chain of causality goes on a very long way.

The chain of causality goes back beyond the killing, beyond the most recent statements; it goes back to earlier killings and statements at that time. It goes back even further to historical killings and historical statements of justice and injustice.

Once you climb aboard the Blame Train, it will go on as far as it can. It will not merely go as far as your idea of justice wants it to.
