Are well intentioned marchers being manipulated over the sad George Floyd occurrence?

After reading a Citizen Tom blog about the police camera videos taken during the arrest which a judge suppressed somehow “was leaked to a foreign newspaper.”.

The George Floyd’s death has resulted in violent protests against the police about societal judgements of police brutality of what went wrong during an arrest of a drug addict.

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient proverb to hopefully help promote understanding to this sad occurrence to focus on the underlying issue of drug addiction awareness. In other words, once a person becomes a drug addict, they can be manipulated same a puppet master manipulates strings of his puppet slaves.

Selected Word Definitions (Google)

Manipulated – control or influence (a person or situation) cleverly, unfairly, or unscrupulously.

“the masses were deceived and manipulated by a tiny group”

Puppet Masters – a person, group, or country that covertly controls another.

“the puppet master behind the current administration”

King Solomon

When a king sits on his throne to judge, he winnows out all evil with his eyes. (Proverb 20:8)

What’s My Point?

We need to winnow our eyes to set aside the issue of anger to judge the police handling of the arrest, and focus on the underlying issue of how drug addicts can become manipulated same as helpless puppets to their puppet masters drug sellers.

My point is, if the same violent reaction of angry marchers to judge the drug sellers, perhaps the George Floyd police occurrences may never have happened in the first place.

In My Opinion

The reasons why we have never won the war against drugs is because some “tiny group” is profiting on selling drugs in the USA.

Why the USA never closed the borders, or used the military against the drug sellers is something I never understand.

The other issue is why most people are being manipulated by in a similar way as government puppet masters who refuse to make a needed social  awareness to educate citizenry what every doctor who treats drug addicts knows?

That once a person becomes a drug addict, the recidivism rates of him or her ever becoming freed from their puppet master is very high. For example, if they become a heroin drug addict, there is only a 10 percent chance of them ever stop using heroin for the rest of their lives.

In other words, a puppet master is another form of a slave master, and a slave has only one master in their lives.

Sadly, the same government by passing laws to promote the sale of legalized recreational drugs is now profiting from the sale of addictive life threating drugs.

While at the same time, the underlying causes of most of the shooting violence in Chicago is drug sales territories.

You Decide

Should we judge legislators running for election in 2020 for their wisdom and understanding of the underlying issues of the George Floyd occurrence in the 2020 election?

Should you judge how past legislators handled the flow of drugs into our Nation by refusing to seal the borders and are now manipulating marchers same as puppet masters to win the 2020 election by remaining silent on the underlying issue of the sad Georg Floyd occurrence?

Should we winnow our eyes about the underlying reasons for the George Floyd occurrence same as the above King Solomon wisdom verse?
