The last two days I have been disgusted by the bad words on the videos of Alton Sterling being killed by police officers in Baton Rouge.
What disgusts me is that I can’t hear the “bad words”, and that much of the repulsive activity taking place is being masked by the bleeping out of those “bad words”.
The notion of what offends, and what we need to be “protected” from, demonstrated by these videos, sums up how distorted the priorities of ruling institutions have become.
Philando Castile lies dying in his car after being shot several times by a hysterically shrieking police officer, while Diamond Reynolds, Philando Castile’s fiancée, calmly films and narrates the whole proceedings. Meanwhile, her 4-year-old daughter is being traumatized in the back seat as she witnesses the whole revolting happening.
Heaven forbid that that little girl should ever hear “bad words” on television……
