re: 1000th execution...a landmark...of sorts

so the united states is fast approaching the 1000th execution in the modern era (since executions started back up in 1977 after a brief hiatus) and there is quite a lot of buzz about taking action around the event...

hmmmmmmmmm...

this lil' tennessee dude is of 2 minds about this...

okay, if there is a grassroots clamor to organize around the moment then organizers should assist these activists in making the event strategic within the state...i mean, i think the last thing that the movement needs are loose cannons shooting off all over the place...i mean even as a metaphor, cannons shooting off randomly are likely to scare people...perhaps that' s not what makes sense in some states - perhaps in others it might...might...

so by all means if the people want to act, be creative and direct their motivation in a strategic direction...

but if there's no push from below to make something happen around the event i would think very carefully before seizing upon it just for the sake of doing something...

i mean let's face it - this is a negative event, a real bummer, a low-point, a nadir ... am i making my point???

1000 intentional deaths coordinated and carried out by governments in the name of all her citizens...

in tennessee we will issue a press release that taps into (HEAVILY) the press release from MVFHR ... we think that's strategic in that it's directed at the media per se and not at them as a proxy to carry a/the message to a wider audience...

1000 executions - f_____ing a - that's not right...make sure your response moves your state plan (or community) forward...

that's what i'm talkin' about...that's all i'm sayin'...
