I think he should get the death penalty. I feel heartbroken for the surviving people who are going to relive the horror of that violent, murderous evening for the rest of ther lives and for the families who have lost their precious loved ones.
All the hand-waving over the age of the earth (which is 4-5 billion years, of course) is like a tweet from Donald Trump: a giant f'n distraction. The grandstanding over the Columbian Mammoth fossil earned our state nationwide jabs for our provincial rube behavior, but did nothing to erode the influence of the party on this state. What's really at stake is the typical litany of basic state functions being left to dry to prove that they don't work: public education, environmental protection, roads/bridges/dams. Just look at how many road and highway signs simply collapse in the breeze around here? That's a symptom.
Now he's got a shot at being on deck for the governor's desk, solidifying the succession order as solid Good Ol' Boy. But there's plenty more where he came from, and yuks and hashtags about an icky graphic novel or no, they're getting their way.
And it teaches them that they must make everyone believe exactly as they do, so when they grow up into physical adults, they do everything they can to control the masses and have them conform to their definition of m0rality. It's called "Br@inwashing".
That t3rrifies (abnses) them (and me until I saw the light of their judgment) which starts their cycle of a lifetime of religi0us oppr3ssion that controls them forever.
Abnse from the chnrch and g0d! "Who ever does not believe in me, worship me and only me, or fails to follow my "loving" commands shall perish in a fiery h3ll for eternity".
'Did something happen to them as children?' Yes.
It seems to me the central question is what about Scott caused Slager's "fear" from a man who was obviously trying to get away from him. Scott didn't attack Slager; he ran away. Whatever caused the altercation and whatever happened during it, was due to Scott's not wanting to deal with Slager. When the shots were fired, he was 18 feet away. I am not one to yell "racist" at every opportunity, but whether or not Slager was even aware of it, if you are honest you have to ask how much Scott' being Black contributed to Slager's "fear" for his life. t is almost impossible to deny the racial elements in the case.
