Look, we have plenty of problems in our society. The fact that we really and truly are a melting pot means that we need to be more tolerant of each other. This brings me to Moore, Oklahoma. The Rodriguez family decided to go to a movie. No problem. Cool. At the movies, however, things start to go crazy.
Mother and daughter begin to argue. I don’t understand. You are at a movie. Arguments do happen, but it is critically important for someone with a cool head to settle the situation. This is basic public protocol. Unfortunately, there is no one with a cool head to step in. Mom slaps her daughter in this public place. STUPID.
So, someone calls the cops. You know how this is going to go.
The cops show up. The mother has now gone to the car. The cops ask the father for his ID. He doesn’t want to show his ID. Stupid. Really stupid.
The father still refuses to show his ID. You know that he has to be restrained. The mother is now out of the car filming this take-down on her cellphone. At the end of the scuffle, the husband is dead. The wife is crying and the police are left trying to answer questions about how this happened. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.
This ridiculous situation could have been avoided with just a little common sense from someone, anyone.
