MORAL WEAKNESS AND ITS CONSEQUENCES
I don’t pretend to be the arbiter of perfect behavior and moral perfection but I do take exception to those who think they are above the rest of us because of power, money, position and arrogance. Those who swear to “DO NO HARM” and “TO SERVE AND PROTECT” are subject to the same pitfalls, challenges, traumas and mistakes like the rest of us. so should they be held to a higher standard? Inspector Clarke R, a HOUSTON CLAN member, said this to me on more than one occasion, I will paraphrase, ‘as a cop I am expected to behave in such a manner, in my personal life, in a way that is befitting the police force I work for.’
Do we have a right to expect everyone to follow the law, but what about our social leaders such as doctors, lawyers, police officers: all leaders? Where these people are likely to make mistakes it is an entirely different thing when collectively people such as the HOUSTON CLAN gather to willfully, deliberately and consciously use this collective power to take from our 2 very elderly parents what was not given to them. They didn’t want to wait for them to die.
John F. Kennedy said, “To much is given much is expected.”
This CLAN has been given much. Have they had their stumbles and heartache, sure. But, they still had a lot more than most.
So I do this blog because:
- Those who abuse power must be held accountable
- People in these positions should know that things are not always what they appear to be. Therefore, fact-finding is incumbent upon you. A doctor and a cop don’t know how to find out FACTS? They didn’t because they didn’t want to know the truth, it didn’t fit into their pre-planned agenda.
- Betraying two elderly people for your own selfish end is reprehensible.
- People of good conscience must speak up because TRUTH MATTERS.
- The actions taken by the HOUSTON CLAN robed our parents and myself of dignity and peace of mind. They should have had the right to even understand what was happening to them.
