Wisdom from a dog. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if our world leaders heeded this advice? Not just them but neighborhood disputes, road rage, and any other type of rage that is not earth shattering. Sitting down and thinking about things before any knee-jerk reaction has to better.
On a completely opposite track, I believe that sometimes rage is justified. When you see parents, family, friends of murdered victims not receive the type of justice they should. They live with that crime and their loss, all their lives. Yet the criminals seem to be out in no time. The law doesn’t seem able to punish the offenders of these crimes in a way that makes them atone for what they did.
Then there are the victims of crime like rape, child abuse, and domestic violence. The law doesn’t appear to have much sympathy for them. Sometimes the victims are treated like criminals, instead of the real criminal.There are always excuses put forward by the criminal’s defense council as to why the perpetrator committed the crime. They weren’t breast-fed as a baby, or they came from a deprived background, and so on. However, there have been many people in those exact same circumstances who didn’t go out and commit crimes. It was their choice in either scenario.
Some time ago there was a riot in one of our jails and they smashed pool tables, television sets, computers, and burned bedding and books etc. We, the taxpayer, had to pay to have all the damaged goods replaced. I ask myself why? Why not leave them like that? When will they ever have to live with the results of their actions? If no one ever makes them accountable, when will they ever learn that for every action there is a reaction.
