Let's Explore Radicalism - Poem by Is It Poetry

What makes them want to kill U.S.
Is it that the U.S. for over fifty years
has taken advantage of other countries natural resources?
The U.S. calls it national security.
Thirty thousand suicides in America every year.
Yesterday it was suicide by cop after they killed
forteen and wounded seventeen more.
As I have pointed out in other musings, until the U.S.
starts to address the chronically mentally ill and
because law enforcement arrests these unfortunate individuals
by the hundreds of thousand's every year
and in most of these that are arrested they are brutalized
even more, the U.S. can expect this situation to continue
to grow worse.
Such is the case for example here in Florida where so many
of our politicians are them selves severely mentally ill.
Corrupt beyond belief as such an example take what is going on
in Chicago.
Multiply this type of corruption by ten when you are in the South.
No one likes to be abused and yet they continue to abuse U.S.
You don't see black people doing this in the U.S. ever wonder why?
Black on Black you say it doesn't count!
White's though go postal, so much more, so much more often.
What should the U.S. do?
Why does law enforcement brutalize the mentally ill.
Why does law enforcement expect the mentally ill to comply
to voice commands that they scream out at them?
Why does law enforcement
have military equipment they shouldn't ever have?
Half of our children will grow up to be dissfunctional
due to nothing else than law enforcement and the Judge's
need to place them in the system.
Muslims that are considered radicalised
by the U.S. do not
have the ability to comprehend such an irrational concept's
and that by wherein the U.S. would with such
premedication and aforethought destroy the lives of our young.
Just to create job's for prison guards that are barely one
stept above being prisoner's themselves.
When have we had enough short of being one of those they kill?

    well, ............well far as voicing your frustration? and concerns for the mentally ill and others.

    unfortunately [you may be tired of reading unfortunately.....] the world is imperfect, populated by 'imperfect people', and perhaps created by an imperfect god. yes, maybe god is/was mentally ill if there ever was a god.

    [ok, now i've an excuse to not try to improve conditions. things are 'just imperfect', and that's the way it is and shall continue to be. HERE: i'll pass the buck to anyone who will take it! ]

    your use of postal..............White's though go postal.................seems misused. i am a postal retiree and we postal workers and retirees would like to claim going postal for ourselves, thank you! other non-postal people should not, in my opinion, be said to go postal just because they go crazy and maybe shoot a few people. ok?

    :) :) bri :)

    p.s. i DO (and have for many years) befriended some people with 'mental illness' through an organization called Compeer aka Compeer Rochester i believe. at present i am not an official volunteer for them as i was for over ten years, but i do still visit over the phone every week with two men about my age who have mental health issues and who enjoy talking to me for 20-30 minutes once or twice most weeks. i used to visit such people weekly until i move across the country. there are Compeer affiliates and similar organizations outside of Rochester New York, where Compeer was started about 40? years ago.
