Vertical panorama here:
Should citizens record police actions? Will the advent of video everywhere inhibit the authorities’ ability to perform their duties? Are we keeping the police honest by recording their actions?
Personally my motto is, if you aren’t doing anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about. However, if a video is started in the middle of a situation or is seen out of context, the actions seen could be misinterpreted. What are your feelings?
I was in my cubicle at Stargate Internet writing a guide for setting up the new DSL broadband that had just come to our area. We brought a TV from the break room. I thought he was joking at first or that it was a movie, but then I realized the horror that was unfolding before me. I cried in anger and in unbelieving sadness for those people. All those innocent people…
Zombies! In a TV series! From a comic book! Best zombie effects ever created! Did I mention ZOMBIES?!
To all of you who feel that they must publicly judge this young lady and/or her parents: Shame on you.
By doing so you belittle the bravery of this girl and her parents. You darken the love for what she does and the amazing courage it took for her folks to believe in her dream, and the courage it took for this young woman to do what she loves.
These parents, their life, their decisions, none of your business. You let your 16 year old giggly vapid waste of over-protected teenagers drive a car? Just as dangerous, probably more so. When you PARENTS can drive your car without the need to text while doing so, then maybe you will have a clue.
You can over-protect and weaken your little snowflakes all you like, but leave these folks alone and take your insufferable need for drama and judgment elsewhere (This includes the media). This young lady and her parents have more courage and fortitude than any of you armchair/sofa hover-parents. She will do well in this world.
Abby, kudos to you and your parents for your bravery. I admire your parents for having the heart to let you follow your dream.
