Why should this question be a conundrum in a Democrat Republic???????

The Chicago Tribune article titled: Top Cop addresses officers’ efforts acknowledgement, contained the following statement:

“One thing that I would caution all of us, that I’ve taken my own advice as well, is picking a fight with the state’s attorney and the chief judge is not healthy,” Brown said. “I know it feels good to say, you know, ‘lock ‘me up. Throw away the key.’ That is not what these elected officials were elected to do.”

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient wisdom proverb about the ‘city’, the issue of positive or negative motivations of fear, to help discern the above statement in relation to this conundrum. A conundrum which apparently needs an urgent answer based on the record number of shootings taking place in Chicago and many urban cities across in the USA, a Nation defined as being a Democrat Republic.

King Solomon

Woe to the land whose king was a servant and whose princes feast in the morning. (Proverb 10:16)

Conquering Fear – Excerpt

“Understanding and knowledge gives us the tools to deal with our fears.”

What’s My Point?

My point is If we discern the Police Supervisor above statement that we “lock me up and throw away the key, “and, “That is not what these elected officials were elected to do,” the conundrum then becomes what are public “servants” not doing that is resulting in record number of shootings in Chicago.

Also, what does the issue of the motivation of fear have to do with the proverb in relation to the words “Woe to the land whose king was a servant and whose princes feast in the morning.”

Also, what has a post titled “Conquering fear” statement of “provides the answer to this conundrum, in my opinion.

For Example

All three of the above public servants selected by either an elected politician, or voted into office, to serve the interests of voters need to discern the wisdom of arresting a person carrying a gun in a high crime city because they have no fear being locked up until a court determines if they should have the right to be free to intimidate the citizens in their communities from testifying against them.

In My Opinion?

Perhaps the wrong (evil) people have ‘Conquered their fears instead of the (righteous) living in their communities who fear the consequences of testifying as a witness?

Or in other words, the police should not be fearful of losing their job for being proactive instead of reactive to arrest someone caring a gun.

The State Attorney a Prosecuting Attorneys should fear the voters who elected them for being more concerned about the Rights of evil gun carriers than their victims. If the attorneys y is concerned about a gun carrier having to spend too long a time in a jail to await trial, they should figure out how to speed up the trial dates.

You Decide

If after reading my following comment made to the writer of the post ‘Conquering Fear’ will help the above public servants discern that whatever “these elected officials were elected to do.” Is not working…Is not working…IS NOT WORKING!

Is the real reason it is not working is because the voters have become servants of politicians and criminals instead of the other way around?

My Comment to Writer of ‘Conquering Fear’

Joseph,

You stated

“Understanding and knowledge gives us the tools to deal with our fears.”

One of the most effective tools to overcome fear is religion. The Bible is full of wisdom verses to lead to wisdom and love paths to obtain the right path to understand the differences of positive (righteous) or negative (evil) fear motivations we will experience in life.

History only helps us to understand who chose a right or wrong path to discern that knowledge to avoid repeating the follies and hopefully emulate the wise paths.

For example.

How much better to acquire wisdom than gold! To gain understanding is more desirable than silver. The highway of the upright leads away from evil; he who guards his way protects his life.…(Proverb 16:16)
