Denied This Right

Increasing with a frequency,
Are psychologists and police...
Giving their,
Solicited assessments.
As to how someone stressed.
And upset.
Will choose violence.
Violence to express,
Whatever it is...
They decide what upsets them.
Explained...
In quick to gather,
Factless detail.
How such evil misdeeds,
On others committed.
As if permitted.

Yet...
Denied this right,
Are those on a daily basis...
Profiled and chosen to suspect,
Of being just too peaceful.
With a doing this done,
To 'appear' to be...
Respectful human beings.
In neighborhoods,
Where that image marketed...
Just does not fit the fiction!

'Decoys.
Will catch up with them later.
Okay.
Now what has happened,
To the one alleged...
Of the horrific crime,
And violence committed...
On the innocent people,
Victimized? '

'We are doing the best we can,
To calm him down.
He now is drinking,
A cup of coffee.
4 sugars and 2 creams.
A multi-grain croissant.
Sliced and filled,
With veggie cheese.
Heated for no more,
Than 20 seconds.'

'Well...
That's good news.
As soon as you can,
Find out who the victims are.
And who it was,
That provoked...
The 'alleged' culprit,
You observe as being stressed.
To do such a pointless thing.'

'Will do!
Oh...
What about the folks,
We were profiling? '

'We have them on camera.
And our surveillance team,
Has placed them...
On constant watch.'
