What happened to taking personal responsibility for our actions

After all the recent demonstrations across the country I have to ask, what happened to taking personal responsibility for our actions?  We as a nation have continually elected individuals to serve as public servants who continue to take this country off the deep end of which we will soon be at the point of no return.

Our nation just went over 18 trillion in debt. Our president wants 263 billion as a response to what took place in Ferguson as looters and rioters destroyed the city. Yes, camera’s on police will stop all the violence in this nation. Sure we have a few individuals in uniform who may push the envelop of power but when citizens resist a command from a uniformed officer and becomes combatant, where is the accountability for their actions.

Each day our police and military personal dress in their uniforms to protect the American people with the knowledge they may take their last breath at anytime during their daily routine.  That is the price they may have to pay for protecting our freedoms which we value so deeply.

Why are individuals allowed to disrespect those in uniform by resisting a command to cease and desist in the activity they are engaged in, then when something  bad happens we do not hold those individuals accountable for their actions?  Obey the command, listen to the request and after all is said and done if you don’t like the treatment or the outcome of the situation file a complaint and/or hire a lawyer to resolve the issue at hand.

Death is a terrible thing when it is unexpected, we feel for the families that have lost loved ones through no fault of their own. Death by the hand of another individual is devastating for all families involved premeditated or not.

Tragedy can be averted in many cases if individuals respected their lives more then their hatred of the law.  Peaceful protesting is the American way to help spread the message in a responsible way not looting and rioting, burning down a city to make a point. No one wins there.
