I'm on my soapbox again...

First of all... let me remind y'all to go enter my giveaway for a new blog header by Stitchblade Designs. Go on... I'll wait...

....

soapboxOk thanks.   Today I am stepping back up on my SOAPBOX to discuss something. I've been SUPAH bugged all week because of a few groups I found on Facebook.  But they deserve a lot more than a Tad Award, so I'm just gonna gripe about them. The groups are called "F**k the Police."  Except it didn't have the **. :( Ok, seriously?? These groups are all about how police suck and how they should all die, etc... And what made me laugh is that most of the people commented where whining about getting a ticket. Um... Ok?? But the groups alone aren't what got me. There were links people had posted to youtube to videos of police brutality.  Some of the videos were bad. I admit it: There are some total jacka$$es that are cops and they are on a total power trip. There are others that get caught up in the moment of getting a total BAD GUY off the street and they don't follow correct procedures. Yes- crap like cops3that happens. BUT IT IS RARE. More often than not you are only seeing one side of the story. But whatev. There was a comment a $&#^@*&^  on one of these videos that had me in tears. I'm sure y'all have noticed, but I LOVE my husband. I do. He is awesome. He's my hero.   So when I read this comment, I lost it. This loser said, "Hey kids, do something with your life: KILL A COP.  Oh, and make sure it's one with a family."  Speech.less. I know the person who wrote that was an absolute idiot, but still. SERIOUSLY!!?!???  Sei told me "Don't let it get to you." Um, ok. So... I've done what I can. I joined a few groups on FB like "Remove F**k the Police from Facebook" and reported a few of those bad pages, etc... Idk if it'll do anything, but atleast I feel like I did something. "Don't let it get to you." PFFT! Too late.

I am now stepping off my SOAPBOX and opening the floor to you.  What has REALLY been bugging you lately??  Step on up on the soapbox and get it off your chest.
