KANSAS CITY CONSENSUS: IF YOU HUG MY MURDERER!!!
The aftermath of a wrongful shooting and death trial resonates across the nation and in Kansas City.
Here's the best roundup of the debate and I have to admit, upon first viewing the story at face value is life affirming regarding the power of forgiveness BUT, of course, context makes the difference here . . .
WaPo: Amber Guyger was hugged by her victim’s brother and a judge, igniting a debate about forgiveness and race
Meanwhile . . .
The KCMO urban core is exploding with opinion and outrage over post-trial display.
Even better . . .
TKC MUST READ!!! KANSAS CITY BLACK COMMUNITY REBUKES DALLAS 'HUGS FOR KILLER' TRIAL POSTSCRIPT!!!
Of course there will be some reactionary chatter regarding this post but we believe this satirical hot take suits our blog community perfectly and might even offer a perspective which elicits commonality in reaction to a debate that threatens to worsen the American racial divide.
Kansas City Consensus: If You Hug My Murderer
I will come back and haunt you for the rest of your days - hide your tv remotes, hack your social media, misplace your car keys on Monday and Thursday mornings and any other cruel think I can think to make your whole entire life a living hell on earth...
I will haunt you and make sure you step on a lego every day of your life.
I will haunt you and make the person walking behind you in the Price Chopper hits you in the ankles with their grocery basket every time you shop.
I will haunt you and make your Gates beef/turkey/ham on bun DRY AF and your fries under-cooked.
I will haunt you and take a sock out the dryer every time you do laundry.
I will haunt you and take all of your earring backs and bobby pins.
I will haunt you and make the every metal detector you walk through go off, especially through TSA so they can do a full body search.
You decide . . .
