Eric Casebolt, Savagery and Emotionless population!

The only thing that makes a person a human being are the feelings toward others. Sometimes I feel like the way European-American police officers act towards African-American kids strips these police officers of their humanity. Their actions towards these kids put them in concert with the wild. If a kid tells an officer 'I'm sorry!' and the officer says 'I don't care!' then you know either European-American personhood is morally challenged or America hires wild beasts in the name of police officers...or the American system is as it was since the 1600s. America is slowly drifting back into the past.

The recent footage of a police offer pinning down a McKinney (Texas )14-year old  girl and talking to a bunch of kids as if they are adults requires America to reconsider the state of mind of their officers. If an adult looses himself because kids who pose no danger to anyone turned up at a suburban pool party then you gotta wonder how this state of affair is different from Jim Crow era! European-American home owners in the area told Zahid Arab of Fox4 that the officer was justified in this action. This is heartless!

A conscientious European-American kid at the scene portrayed an attitude that is admirable; something that I believe should be the future of America. “Everyone who was getting put on the ground was black, Mexican, Arabic...The cop “didn’t even look at me. It was kind of like I was invisible.”

The calm and mannerism these African-American kids showed made me proud. While some of the young African-American men that are routinely killed by European-American police officers have questionable characters, these kids were just celebrating the end of school year.

And what makes me even more horrified is the fact that an adult civilian (European-American) simply watched emotionlessly as a 14-year girl was being assulted by a police officer without this adult saying a single word. A human population that feels nothing toward another human population is a dangerous human population. We are human beings because of our feelings. And if the adults, who called the police, believe the police action was justified then something is terribly wrong in American moral conscientious. I know European-Americans have always been morally challenged hisotrically but I'd assume a level of evolution toward the positive. It's 2015 in the name of the son of a the Jewish Carpenter!

How come young European-Americans have more hearts and human emotions than their parents? Perhaps these younger generation of European-America is the future of America. They are more human than the parents with robotic hearts!

My main concern is the emotionlessness with which these people act. What makes them human, exactly?

And what is even more appalling is the fact that Eric Casebolt, the offending police officer, is a decorated officer. Seriously!  This man has a position of responsibility in the police Union and has won several medals as reported by Washington Post. You just have to wonder, if that's the kind of the officer who winds medal, then how bad are the rest?

Eric Casebolt was foul-mouthed, unprofessional, emotionally savage, yet he's the kind of officer who winds medals! "God Bless America!"



As someone who grew up in war conditions and lived as a refugee for a long time, I'm sometimes considered by many people in the 'west' to be prone to (or have) low self-esteem, be poor or illiterate. Living as refugees or displaced persons, who depended on the good will of others put people in a situation where they don't think much about themselves. But that's not everyone though.

As I stood by our front desk at my place work talking about Race and Identity in relation to my book, Is 'Black' Really Beautiful?, the issue of why many African peoples in North America become so over-sensitive when racial issues come up! For many rational people, this owes its origin to slavery and racial segregation.

But one of my coworkers, a person of European descent, was surprised to realize that her 'black' friend, a very intelligent woman, easily becomes irritated by simple things she [friend] considers racist. The friend considers any mention of a watermelon racist; and complains a lot about 'white privilege.' This means that discrimination is considered something 'whites' don't face because of 'white privilege.' In any discussion between 'blacks' and 'whites', 'white privilege' issue comes up!
