The concept of personal responsibility is close to being abolished.
Evidence for such a claim was on full display back in March, when a young black male robber was shot dead during a home invasion…. and his family defended his actions. While they could’ve intelligently argued that he didn’t deserve to die just for committing a burglary, they instead defended his criminal actions.
Yes – really.
The sister of the teen who died identified him as Trevon Johnson. His cousin stated, about the homeowner, “I don’t care if she have her gun license or any of that. That is way beyond the law – way beyond.”
The cousin continued: “You have to look at it from every child’s point of view that was raised in the hood. You have to understand… how he going to get his money to have clothes to go to school? You have to look at it from his point-of-view.”
Here’s video reporting on the incident, via Chicks on the Right:
The homeowner didn’t kill Johnson – this sort of mentality did. That if you don’t have something, you’re entitled to what someone else has.
To answer the cousin’s question of “how is he supposed to get his money,” I’ll remind them of these things called “jobs.” People have been earning money from them for thousands of years, and the system has worked pretty well thus far.
