Just when you think that politicians can't get any lower, they do something to surprise you.
Take for instance the republican senate candidate from New Mexico.
This piece of filth though that it would be cool to use the beheading of an American to make a political point.
"Less than a week after ISIS released a video showing the death of photojournalist James Foley, a Senate candidate has used it for political gain.
Allen Weh, a GOP candidate running against incumbent Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM), released an official campaign ad today juxtaposing ISIS’s carnage across the Middle East with Barack Obama‘s recent golf trip, with an extra ironic voiceover from then-candidate Obama talking about the tremendous sacrifices to his personal life should he become President.
Among the footage, however, was a still from the video, showing the man who executed Foley (but not Foley himself.)" [Source]
At least he didn't show the actual footage of the beheading, although, given the desperate nature of politics in America, I am sure that will be next.
So the parents of Michael Brown had the unfortunate task of burying their son today.
The community is understandably angry, but they should remain calm (although I would understand it- not condone it- if they didn't), and they should honor the memory of this young man in a solemn and dignified way. Unlike the way that the authorities in Ferguson, Missouri treated him right after his killing.
I know that according to some folks (including the ignoramuses at the New York Times) he was no angel", but he was his mother's angel, and a police officer with issues did not have the right to take him from her.
Finally, I was thinking about something while reading the latest story about a "loving" family man killing his family. This time a man in Georgia shot his wife and his toddler to death and then turned the gun on himself. Think about that for a minute.......He. Killed. His. Toddler.
The most depraved and morally bankrupt gangbanger isn't taking a gun and killing his own child who happens to be a toddler.
And yet, when these types of things happen in a certain community, you don't hear cries of a need for a national conversation about these types of pathologies, or pundits always pointing out these things when there are other issues to be addressed.
"Brian Miller, 41, who's described by his stunned daughter as a "religious" man and "good dad," is suspected of killing his wife, Kara, 29, and their 21-month-old son, Paxton, in their Paulding County home, reported WSBTV.
The tragic discovery came when deputies were called to the home to perform a welfare check Monday after family said they hadn't heard from the couple since Friday. It's not yet clear when they died.
"He's very church involved. He's very religious. He's a good dad and he didn't deserve something like this," Ashley Miller, Brian Miller's daughter from a previous marriage, told WSBTV.
Ashley added that the couple recently celebrated their five-year anniversary and were happy, adding to her agonizing shock and confusion."'
Ashley, his family "didn't deserve something like this"; he, on the other hand, deserved everything he got.
