Dear Mr. President,
I can only guess at just how busy you must be so I'll make this as short as I can.
What my concern is the human rights abuses being committed by the very people who were hired to SERVE and PROTECT US' the American people! Citizens ARE being murdered by police who are usually veterans with ptsd and should NOT be hired as policemen since under what they perceive as a threat sets them off.What has always taken place in this country is only now just coming to light thanks to the FREE and open internet which is FREE speech on a modern platform and should not be placed in jeopardy at any cost due to a few people who wish to profit from it.
In closing sir, please give full consideration to what I am relating to you since I can tell you stories of abuse in my family by GODS representatives to my parents as children. They were beaten by nuns and priests and called animals for speaking their native language which I have been deprived of thanks to the catholic church! The nuns would take a ruler and use it like a meat clever and whack the knuckles breaking the skin causing bleeding and latter in life severe arthritis in both hands. Yet, my father still went to war for our country risking life and limb on so many occasions during that conflict we call WW II. It breaks my heart to think of how our country which our fathers fought , died and still suffer for after surviving war. Racism still exists and is out of sight just below the surface but now coming to light. All the laws in the world cannot change hate which is what every service member learns to do in preparation for battle. My question is what is the solution? Outlaw war.
How can a world capable of so much love and kindness do so much hate? I believe it starts in the home at a very early age and follows us the rest of our lives.
I, sir am a native American man who has spoken from my own life experience on this subject and still experience it on a daily basis which you can see when "dirty looks" are cast your when out in public. I feel so sorry for haters since hate is a mental defect put upon those at an early age.. One can only hope. Peace to you and yours sir.
Thank-you for your time.
John M. Stanley
