Can EYE Rant about #Drones #MicahJohnson #WhitePrivilegeMeans #Drones #USA and #BlackLivesMatter?

There used to be a radio disc jockey who used to say "If you are scared then say you are scared"  EYE am telling you right now EYE am scared of my government and for my country.  Whew. Feels good to finally get that out.  Why am EYE scared?  Because a drone was used to blow up an American citizen without a trial yesterday.  Let that sink in.
(RPI) The Dallas shootings have ushered in a very new world for U.S. citizens. For the very first time, a drone has been used on U.S. soil to kill an American without trial or charges.
The suspected shooter in yesterday’s tragic killings, U.S. Army veteran Micah Xavier Johnson, was, according to police and press reports, holed up in a parking garage and would not give himself up. After hours of what police claimed were fruitless negotiations with Johnson, a weaponized robot was sent to where he was hiding and blown up, taking Johnson with it.
EYE don't know if Micah Xavier Johnson is guilty of being a cold blooded cop killer or not and we will never know now because the Dallas PD decided to be judge, jury, and the executioner, which ironically is what the #BlackLivesMatter Movement is protesting against.
At this point nearly everything we know about Johnson comes from the Dallas police. Some of it does not ring true.
We don't know what we don't know.  We know what Fox News and the cable networks want us to know. Personally EYE am more afraid of the media  and the police than EYE am of the Black Lives Matter Movement.  The Black Lives Matter Movement is about saving lives, not taking lives.  
Fox News wants you to be afraid, very afraid, of Black Lives Matter.
Meanwhile The Bahamas just issued a travel warning to the United States of America.  You know, the land of the free and the home of the brave.
“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Immigration has taken a note of the recent tensions in some American cities over shootings of young black males by police officers,” the statement read. “We wish to advise all Bahamians traveling to the US but especially to the affected cities to exercise appropriate caution generally. In particular young males are asked to exercise extreme caution in affected cities in their interactions with the police. Do not be confrontational and cooperate.”
EYE was afraid to write this post, but EYE was more afraid not to write this post, because this is no who or what we are as a country.  We have to fix this people, because if we don't, it's not going to matter who the President IS.

RedEye tiptoeing away from the computer to go pray for our country and the world.
