Protection

I think Harrison's is different than those others. He called Kaminsky to apologize while most are just reading some prepared statement. This makes sense because Kaminsky was the only one who had reason to be offended anyway.

My kid is scared of bees.
he's 3
a bee scared him once, now he is scared of bees.

I'll be sure to explain how his logic is flawed.

Maybe next time some trash (people who rob others at gun point are trash) like this points a gun at someone's family they will get a bullet themselves and the case never gets in front of a judge of such low quality.


I hate that we live in the "gun country" but at least then we would get something out of it

No I'm pretty sure he's trying to tell you it sounds like you've never been around kids in your life.


Yeah it definitely sounds like he does not have much experience.

At the same time though if he does have some experience that had led to such a different opinion I would love to hear it. I think I am excellent at my job, it is the only thing I have ever felt I was great at, but there is no such thing as an expert because as the saying goes, children are like snowflakes.

Perhaps one day I see a similar situation and can use the information to help a kid. That to me would be far more meaningful than changing his mind.

Are you trying to tell me if I told you I had a ton of experience on this matter you'd suddenly agree with me? That's why I've ignored to answer that. Whatever I say will not change your opinion on this matter. I'm done here.

I actually was asking this because I am curious what you are basing your statements and/or assumptions on.

Probably because of my job I have a habit of attempting to understand where someone is coming from because I see every day how different people are based on all the moving parts in their lives. I explained my background that has led me to where I am on the subject so I was curious about yours.

Despite our disagreement you seemed for awhile that you wanted to have a reasonable conversation. Later however you seemed to imply that I wanted to let racism fester and was making excuses. That is totally false and in a different setting maybe offensive. Then when I try to understand your background you decide that you are done here.
