it ain’t only in texas…

Vox’s Anand Katakam created an interactive map Police-involved deaths (2000-2015)

as i walked by
the bag prophet
he returned
a news paper
borrowed from me
this morning
and
in a voice
that feigned
empathy
said
i understand
from the press
that the officer
in texas
that threw
a young girl child
to ground
wasn’t
attempting
to grope her
or
threaten anyone
with his drawn weapon
he was
just having
a bad day
well i know
we all have
bad days
but
only a few
of us
get to carry guns
when we have one
and that
my dear friend
limits
my sympathy
quite a bit

  1. very true words, these people deprive those who actually need a gun and have the brain to use it properly! you should watch some English movies, thrillers and horrors and you will start advocating against guns for public use!
