  •  Angelajean, please look at films, videos of the (5+ / 0-)

    civil rights movement where Bull Connor sic'd attack dogs on children as young as grammar school. Look at footage of the Edmund Pettis bridge.

    Power does not give up easily, ever. Our history is replete with people being beaten and killed, children being beaten and killed. They bombed children in churches. They hanged young men and cut off their genitals. Horrible and barbaric, sub-human behavior.

    Yes, you are innocent of this, but if we are to fight these people we must be fully aware of what they are capable.

    I am outraged as well. But you and all of us, especially the young people, MUST know and understand our history in order to be prepared for it. Look at India's history with the Brits.

    We must know our enemy to effectively fight them.
