Marysville Shooting: A Reminder to Update School Curricula Across the Country.

On Friday, October 24, 2014, 15 year old, Jaylen Fryberg entered the “cafeteria of Marysville Pilchuck High School inMarysville, Washington, at about 10:45 a.m. and shot people to death because a girl turned down his advances. It is now monnaie courant to hear that a man has shot and killed a woman who rejected his advances. This newest shooting is a reminder that it is time to revamp our school curricula because they do not address the lack of streetwise knowledge, and except we do that, mass schools shootings will only increase because the society has evolved greatly, but our curricula have not changed too.
Topics like "how to deal with rejection from the opposite sex" should be taught to kids from middle school to college. Many young men are unaware that a woman is not obliged to date them. They do not understand that problems are not only resolved with violence. Violence, whether verbal or physical is the weapon of weak communicators. When you check Jayden's Twitter page, he like many boys and men seem to find violence as the Midas magic wand. I do understand that could be the part played by informal education from the parents, but most of these kids nowadays do not enjoy any proper parental tutelage.

Many children are not aware of current events; meanwhile, that is vital because they repeat the same mistakes that others have done that are on the news. The news reporting on crime is a school of its own that awakens their synderesis.
Moral instruction (not religion) should be introduced into the curriculum. Certain virtues like patience, humility, persistence, discipline, tolerance, mutual respect, family values, honesty, love and respect should be taught in schools in a course. To be streetwise is to be conscious of our surroundings.  Young people should differentiate between secretiveness and privacy. Telling people your whereabouts is not getting into your business. It merely helps them to protect you better.  Streetwise person does not meet a person in a bar, goes home with them without telling anyone where they are going and with whom they are going.
Many kids do not know that people treat others badly because as children they have always curried favors. On the contrary, the older one becomes, the crueler the society becomes to them. When a child is born, everyone praises them and say how handsome or beautiful; they are. No one ever calls a baby bitch or nigger. When the child is in her or his teenage age, he or she starts to feel the cruelty. When she was an infant, she got her food by crying. As a teenager, if she tells her parents that she is hungry, they will ask him or her to make him/her own food. As an adult, if she says she is hungry, they will call her "bitch" or "nigger". At times they could even garnish it with loser. Most kids who disappear are those who know nothing about the street, or those who were too “streetful” without accountability.
Schools should teach on how to accept rides.  If a child was to accept a ride from someone, it should either be a neighbor or someone they know. When doing so, they should inform someone about the “Good Samaritan” who is giving them the ride. Communicate the vehicle particulars and the information of the driver.
Classes should be held on how to use guns. Although I a not a gun advocate as I don't even own one, but I do accept that guns have come to stay and stay they will, so we better learn to deal with them. Although some people argue that guns do not kill, guns do facilitate the killing and create the possibility for a higher casualty. However, simply because some people misuse sex we have not banned sex, neither have we even banned alcohol. Instead, we advise people to People should decide
Students should be taught on street manners. Ho to communicate efficiently. The most efficient communication is not a monologue, but a dialogue. In communication, people debate, agree, disagree and disagree to agree or agree to disagree.  
If Jaylyen was taught that it was normal for a woman to reject him, he would not have killed anyone simply because a girl refused him and was going out with another student. He is not even alone as you know that there are many young people who have killed this year simply because some lady stuffed their advances. The burden is ours to bear and we can make good with streetwise curriculum.

Until then, I hope that we will update our curricula.

Are women really safe in America?

My heart bleeds every day I read news like this. Even countries who are fighting wars do not have 32 people killed in 15 days, excluding non-fatal shootings as what just happened in Detroit, Michigan, USA.[1] I have been pondering this over and over and over again each time I read the news, so I thought I should narrow it to women. Young women in their primes are plucked off the tree of life by evil men. The rate at which women are killed in America; a supposedly civilized society is frightening. Could you imagine if this was happening in another country? More women have been killed by their partners since 9/11.[2] You even have American organizations in Latin and Central America fighting for women equality and liberation. I don’t want to depress anyone this morning, so I will keep some horrid numbers to myself. Nonetheless, I will tell you what this country needs to do.
I don’t know if it is the society, the schools or failure to ensure personal responsibility. For example, how does 18 year old Hannah Graham meet a man at a bar, drinks with him, gets drunk and then leaves with him?[3] Granted that the man who killed her is a monster, but why did she drink that late at a bar and then even worst of it all left with him again? These were basic lessons we were taught as we were growing up. You should never leave with a stranger. If anyone evokes personal responsibility, the modern society calls it blaming the victim. That is why the young people nowadays do not learn. The truth is that everybody in this world is not nice, so you should protect yourself. Another example is when the religious folks refuse their kids from carrying condoms or hearing about sexually transmissible diseases because they should not have sex anyway until they are adults. It is as if they believe the world is a perfect place. It is not a surprise that the Red States who believe that way are then the ones with the highest number of teenage pregnancies and even abortions. There is such a personal responsibility called prevention. Parents and teachers, in short the society should teach them that.
The first thing is to integrate streetwise knowledge into the curriculum. Count how many women have been killed this year for turning down the advances of men. 27 year old Mary spears was shot and killed for refusing to give her number to a man who asked for her number and she refused.[4] Just last week a student asked me if a woman has ever rejected me or turned down my advances. He told me that he feels very hurt when he is turned down and feels like he should kill himself. I told him that if every time a woman turned me down, I went and killed myself, I would have died and resurrected several times. These are things that kids need to know as they grow up. It is ok to be turned down. Every woman is not going to accept you, so it is ok for her not to give you her number. 
I always tell women, give it and if you do not like them, you block them. Why put yourself in harm’s way when technology has made things very easy nowadays. Unfortunately, most schools do not know that it is high time to integrate streetwise knowledge into their curriculum. Parents should teach their daughters that it is unsafe to drink and get drunk on your first date or with people you do not know. If you meet a man or woman outside, call your friend or close confidante and let them know where you are. You could also tell the man or woman that you have given their number to your friend or relative that way they know that someone is monitoring them.  Except we teach our kids streetwise wisdom, we will go nowhere with the draconian laws because many still fail to integrate the letter of the law and the spirit of the law.
That is the second reason why you have many women being murdered. I visited some sexual offenders one time, and one of them told me how his offense was just touching a lady. He lamented that he should have raped and killed her for him to really suffer because his punishment does not fit his crime. Consequently, my suggestion to the society is that, we must do all to integrate any convict who has served their time. To quarantine sexual offenders does not protect the society. When they know that they cannot really do a decent job or live normally amongst people, crime is easy to become a walking partner than perseverance. Is it not disheartening to see a man kill 7 women just like that?[5] Granted he is a serial killer, but there is a motivation.  The hopelessness and despair if he is caught for perhaps raping. 
This is sad for a seeming advanced society! Why are American organizations in Latin and Central America when we have such an epidemic here? Shouldn't charity begin at home, or shouldn't they remove the logs from their own eyes before trying to remove the dust from those of other countries? More American men are seeking foreign women for marriage and bringing them into the country. That is sad and pathetic when you realize that there are many beautiful women too in this country. Now, tell me how they could protect those here with them when they do not see any value in them? Let us get down to the basics as a society to teach personal responsibility and tolerance.

Until then, I wish that women will be protected more.

Kathryn Knott: A Victim of the Underprivileged, Unentitled and Jungle justice.

Kathryn Knott.

When you hear a story like this, you immediately know that this country is not too civilized as it pretends to be. For example this one where a man killed 7 women. Go round the same societies you call uncivilized if you will hear stories like this. The daughter of a Philadelphia police chief goes out to dinner with her friends, a fight ensued, and they beat up two guys who happened to be gays. Suddenly, people say that the assailants did it because the victims were gays. Some go as far as canvassing for the sacking of his father. Others blame Christianity for her actions, and her life has been dug opened and calls to get her fired have ensued. Her hospital where she works as an Emergency Room Technician without delay has suspended her until further notice. There are several things that are wrong with the reaction of the society. Many are bedeviled by the spirit of jungle justice which portrays a lack of civilization, the scapegoat mentality or vicarious victimization, the spirit of schadenfreude and an attack on Christianity.  
Can anyone believe that in America at this age, someone can still be beaten by those who disagree with him/her? Isn’t that jungle justice? Wasn’t jungle justice a tool of the uncivilized societies or the lifestyle of barbarians? While I disagree with the homosexuality lifestyle, I also believe it is their right to live how they want; after all, they are not hurting anyone as they live their lives. If their lifestyle is sin; it is left unto God to judge sin and not man. If they were Christians, the bible gives the procedures to discipline wayward brethren. Therefore, the people and the courts should allow them to marry and let God deal with it later.
However, the reason there is always resistance is the intolerance of the homosexuals to those who publicly say that they are against homosexuality. They are hated and threatened, and they are attacked and victimized. This intolerance also goes a long way to show the type of education many have received. Violence; ether physical or verbal is the weapon of weak communicators. Consequently, both the LGBT community and their assailants are responsible for the attacks on gays.
It is surprising how many people say that Kathryn Knott and her friends beat the men up because she and her friends are Christians, and the men are gays. We have seen people who are not gays beaten up. We have seen Christians beaten up. What happened was a product of coincidence. It happened that the young men were gays but not that they were really beaten because they were gays. This is the real entitlement and privilege life that is given to the gay community.
After many found out that she is the daughter of the police chief, they want her father to be fired. That again is jungle justice and the schedenfreude of the underprivileged. There is no law in this country that says that parents should be held accountable for the crimes of their children, talk less of mea culpas of their children; otherwise, how many of those writing will be out after what their own children have done in schools? This vicarious victimization must end; it is a backward mentality. You should judge Kathryn for her crime and not for her background. It is not different from judging anyone for being poor.
Furthermore, her job is wrong to have suspended her just for her tweets. Isn't her right to an opinion? They say that it has come to their knowledge; not that they are aware. They have merely heard rumors of what she wrote. Why are so many people being disciplined now by rumors? Her tweets may not be true. Simply because she tweeted that she called dad when someone ran her off the road and the person was ticketed, is true. In addition, her holding that bottle to her mouth does not mean that she actually drank it. Look, the crowd has occult powers, so many people try to belong. The zeitgeist nowadays is to act badly, so even if one was not, they must create an appearance thereof. Some people want her to pay because of her privileged and life of entitlement. It is not her fault that she was born into a family like that. Anyone who is referring to her life of entitlement is a jealous and envious person. Who amongst us would not be happy to be born into a privileged and entitled home? What is bad with having wealthy parents?

The last issue is how people blame Christianity for the beatings. Even if the three assailants were Christians, it does not mean that they did it in the name of Christianity. It would have been if it is assigned in the Bible to beat and hurt sinners. It is rather another religion that requires its adherents to kill non members because they are unbelievers. Christianity on the other hand urges people to love everyone and pray for their enemies (Mt 5:44).
Notwithstanding, I hope that we as a society will grow more tolerant with our worldviews, and I pray that the two people recover from their assaults. My hope is that the young Kathryn learns from all of this and grows up to be a better person.

Until then, may we grow as a society?

Jameis Winston and the Undue Witch-Hunt.

Jameis Winston and his girlfriend.
"Do you think that Jameis Winston should still be playing after all that he has done?"
This is a question that many are asking online. I have never seen a young man so hated by a simple minority who slept on the wrong side of their beds, but the simple majority who slept on the right side of their beds are failing to bring them back.  There is even a website keeping track of his mea culpas or peccadilloes. This is what is wrong with many people: hypocrisy that destroys greatness. Let me state some of the things that the people want him to be crucified. He was accused of rape, he stole crap legs, he also used profanities, he dressed out in pads even though suspended, and he has been accused of having sold his autographs by signing things for money which is against the NCAA rules. I will treat this question sociologically, logically and biblically.   
There is one thing people should know. Everyone is not going to like you, even if you are the most beautiful, strongest or richest person on earth. It is not a surprise that some do not like the young man. The problem is that in him many people pour their hate for Florida State University (FSU). It is a form of vicarious victimization. He is the scapegoat for FSU. They think that by chopping Jameis Winston down, they are chopping down the FSU program. If there was a hidden camera to expose the lives of all his critics, very few will be standing. They will all pass under the guillotine. You see, this world is a phony place. If the enemies of FSU heard that Jameis Winston has made 3 touchdowns, they will say that he is making them with weak teams or he just got lucky, but if they heard that another quarterback did the same thing, they will say that he is a genius and a super kid. That is just the way human beings are; they always root for an underdog and create a reason not to like someone who is better than them. It is the spirit of jealousy and envy
Logically, I am befuddled how we always want to destroy another person. I just cannot believe how people are happy to see another person fall or suffer. What do they gain? Most people who consider him Caligula have never met him in person. Look, most of what that young man has done are typical things that many young people do. The issue is how much we are quick to accept rape once someone has been accused. We easily forget that many people have accused others for rape and years later, they were exonerated. In addition, mere accusations are not tantamount to a conviction, and even conviction, people could be convicted falsely. Jamies Winston does not need to rape any girl. In his status and popularity, women run to him, and they beg him to make love to them just so they can carry the pride that they had trysts with him. That is the truth!
Religiously, the bible cautions us against rumors (Prov 18:13). No one was there between Jameis Winston and the girl. They were there only the two of them. Nowadays, people can do anything to grasp money. Do they want guys to wire their homes and apartments just to expose them? Secondly, the Bible says that we should forgive 70 x 7 times(Mt 18:22). Whatever the young man did; it is time to forgive and move on. What are crab legs, for God’s sake? What is that profanity that his accusers do not use themselves? Why are people so hypocritical? Nowadays, you talk to someone, but you do not know where they stand. It is a behavior like this that made the Arizona Superintendent of Schools to take a pseudonym rather than use his real name to call his constituents: “lazy pigs”  because you saw the reaction when people knew who he was. Inherently, there was nothing wrong with what he said because he is entitled to an opinion. Why can't human beings be what they profess to be? Why do we live this double lives? I believe this is one of the causes why mental illness is instead increasing, despite our advancement in medicine. The mind cannot deal with you and your doppelganger. If you cannot beat FSU in the football field, you should at least not try to beat her through Jameis Winston. People should leave the young man alone!
However, my advice to Jameis Winston is that he must remember that he is a public figure, so his actions are being scrutinized. He has a great future and should not muddle it up with tomfoolery. He should apply himself to his craft the more mindful that his off the field antics seem to speak louder than his actions on the field because a drop of poisoned water and a drop of good water do not have the same impact. A great man is not one who sleeps with all the women he sees, but it is one who is faithful and loving to the only woman he has chosen to spend his whole life with. Beware of the Delilahs, for through them your enemies will make you blind. Every man must direct his manhood for his urine to find the toilet, else he ill splatter it all over, and that is unsanitary. A great man is one with many platonic friends, but he has only one erotic friend to whom he pledges his allegiance and commitment till the end of the world. Therefore, stay focus young man and use your talents before your foolishness gives your enemies the blade to chop off you head.

Until then, I wish him well.

Duncan recently passed away. May his soul rest in peace!

This is not one of those conspiracy theories where someone does not believe in vaccines. I do as I have taken many of them on TB and many others. My friend, I disagree with the theory that primates are spreading Ebola or that the current outbreak of people dying in West Africa is really from Ebola. One of America's top scientists: Peter Jarhling in Monrovia told this, "We are using tests now that weren't using in the past, but there seems to be a belief that the virus load is higher in these patients [today] than what we have seen before. If true, that's a very different bug." I am not saying that Ebola does not exist; it does. However, this current outbreak is something else. Africans are being made like they are the breeding grounds for Ebola. Listen to this video at 2:48-50. There is a lady asking “who is the African man.” Such blatant prejudice and discrimination should not be tolerated. Simply because I am from Africa does not mean I have Ebola. Even if someone just came from visiting Africa, it does not mean they have Ebola. That is an unacceptable behavior! More so, the method used to diagnose Ebola by testing for high temperatures in the morning and evening is even more faulty because malaria has been known to produce fever with high temperatures. Any African who will travel home and bring malaria would be diagnosed with Ebola. Westerners should keep their ploys and agitprop to themselves. I do not buy any.
Look, if Ebola inhibited the primates as western scientists claimed in 2007,[1] then 1/2 or 3/4 of Africans, Filipinos and even some Latin Americans would have died seeing that the people eat primates. After the disease was found in River Ebola in the Democratic Republic Congo (DRC), they found it in Sudan and the Philippines. Ebola was merely declared to have started in DRC in 1976[2] because that is where it was first discovered and coined the name. However, just because Columbus saw America for the first time, it did not mean that there was no America before he went there.
Considering that it is not an airborne disease, it could have come from somewhere else but which was not discovered. It comes from the transfer of human body fluids. If Ebola had lived in primates and 3/4 of Africans eat primates, then we would have seen the same symptoms from 1976 until today. The theory about Ebola coming from primates is uncouth as it has been tried before, but it did not work. If conservationists don't want the people to eat bush-meat, they should design a means to help them have proteins. The goal in spreading a deadly virus in Africa is to fulfill their quest to curb population explosion. When you read the book, Confessions of An Economic Hitman (Perkins, 2004), you will find it very easy to believe my theory. I hear people saying that oh, they cannot not do this, they cannot do that. 
In 2007, there was a huge wave that primates were the ones spreading Ebola, so people should not more eat bush meat. That was not true as I have shown you above. They arrested and locked up many villagers, yet it did not work. I personally believe that this current outbreak is a western ploy to spread some deadly disease via a sinister vaccine. How can a disease that has been found since 1976 only have an outbreak now, despite taking less precaution? Now, this is where it becomes much more interesting.
Mr. Duncan who recently died of Ebola in the US is from Africa. He is the only one who entered America with the disease and died. There are a couple of other Americans who entered America with the same disease, but they did not die. There was a cure for them.[3] Why? Why did they not multiply the same cure they gave them to send to Africa? I don’t want you to end there.
 Ebola is bad that they don’t even want anyone to touch people who have the disease, yet the US is sending her troops to fight the disease. Are these troops super humans? If they have a vaccine, why don’t they send it to Africa? I heard that the medicine that treated the other Americans ran out. Could it then be that they decided to quarantine Mr. Duncan so that they could lynch him? Would that then mean that the US is not prepared to fight Ebola, seeing that they don’t have medicine to cure anyone? If the medicine ran out on one man, would it be enough for everyone?
The truth about it is that, those troops that are going to West Africa will not come back. They will create an outpost for the US to spread the goals of AFRICOM,[4] which I support anyway. Listen to this; “There is currently no vaccine available to prevent Ebola's spread, but one is in the works.” You start by setting fear in the hearts of the people, they become your preys and then you jump on them. The West always plays this arsonist-firefighter role all the time with deadly repercussions. It is well documented that Americans are too gullible for rumors and most Africans are suffering from inferiority coplplex that they are seeking to belong. If you remember that in 2008, Anderson Cooper and Dr Sanjay Gupta came up with another lie that they have discovered a new disease in Cameroon called Buruli. I wrote to them and posted my reply on my blog, indicating that they had made a mistake because that disease had been researched by the World Health Organization before, so they could not have been the first to find that out. They edited their article but did not give me credit. The funniest thing was how doctors in America were begging them to tell them how they could help. Thank God we caught them read handed with such a flippant lie. 
People have argued that if it was not true, those Americans would not have died. People don’t know much about biological warfare. In every war, there is collateral damage. First and foremost, the havoc of Ebola is exaggerated. The Africans must know that they are under attack. How come they cannot contain it in Africa, but they can contain it in America and are sending those two victims back to the United States? They say that they are bringing the two patients to the CDC in Atlanta to try and stop the outbreak. That is because "The U.S. Centers for Disease Control owns a patent on a particular strain of Ebola known as “EboBun.” It’s patent No. CA2741523A1 and it was awarded in 2010." Now they will have the opportunity to make the vaccine and carry it out. At that time, the West will become the Deus Ex Machina of the Africans from Ebola.
Hear me well, my people! I always speak and years later, it happens as I spoke. I will give you a few examples in history to show you that people are capable of manufacturing a deadly disease in the name of Ebola. Here is your proof. 
I am sure most of you have already forgotten the vaccine controversy in 1990 in Nso. I cannot forget it because it cost Rev Father Anthony his life. This is what happened. In 1990, a team of westerners with the collusion of the Cameroon government came to Cameroon, precisely the North West. Their mission was to vaccinate the people against venereal diseases. However, there were two things that did not sit well with the men of God. The first was that the team decided to vaccinate only the girls. Secondly, the team was unwilling to show the vaccines to the Rev fathers. The resident principal. Fr. Anthony Fonteh and his assistant Rev Br. Denis Ngo were suspicious about the vaccine. They took some samples that they sent to a lab in Switzerland for analysis. The results were staggering. The vaccine was actually meant to cause sterility amongst young girls. That is why they targeted only girls. If the girls were sterile, it would reduce the population explosion because they would have moved from one country to another. If it was just for venereal diseases, it should not have been only for girls as not only girls contract or spread venereal diseases. African governments are too corrupt that they will accept anything.
When father Anthony confronted the authorities with all the information, he was murdered and innocent people were framed for his murder.[5] It was by the mercies of God that some of the girls who had only taken three doses and not all the 5 doses required were spared. Had they taken all doses like Pascaline Kerenyuy, they would have been sterile as she has not been able to have a child until today. The main nurse: Mr. Lukong responsible for administering the vaccine asked his own daughter not to take it and not to allow anyone to force her to take it. Therefore, I want to draw your attention to Ebola.
I hope that you have not quickly forgotten Tuskegee.[6] In the sinister project, the researchers neither disclosed the intent of the experiment to the men used in the experiment nor were they even treated, even when a cure for syphilis was discovered and administered widely. If that can happen right here in America (the land of the free) for such a long period of time, how much more Africa (the land where everyone dumps his/her darkness)?
The media sings that this current outbreak is Ebola, but they are developing a vaccine for it. The desire to curb the African population lives on. How many times do you hear the westerners say that if nothing is done, the world will run out of food? How many times have you heard the West say that there is population explosion in Africa? There must be a means to curb that population. The motive for spreading this fear is to push people to be ready to embrace the “Ebola vaccine” whose sole purpose will be to produce sterility in Africans. Take note that one of the adverse effects of this vaccine will be that it will cause sterility. Considering the amount of fear now in people, every African will want to take it acquiescently. People should not say that I did not tell them; you have been forewarned!

Until then, I don’t believe it!

Domestic Violence: A Testament of Familyquakes.

Look, I feel very sorry for American women. Everyday they are in the news because they are now the punching bags of their men. I have said it before, and I will say it again; American men do not know how to treat their women. Before you get mad that it is happening in other corners of the globe, you should ask yourself if those places have ever tried to teach you how to live. America has been the one trying to serve as a moral compass, but she always fails when the roll is called up. In addition, one would expect that rate of barbarism in an uncivilized society and not in a First World. What type of education are these people getting? On September 1, 2014, the Arizona daily Star reported that, “San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Ray McDonald was arrested early Sunday on felony domestic violence charges...”[1] On September 17, CNN reported that, “Arizona Cardinals backup running back Jonathan Dwyer was arrested in connection with domestic abuse allegations, Phoenix police said Wednesday night.”[2]I am not going to make you depressed this morning, but if you will want to drink your own poison, you can read the news for these past seven days. The picture on domestic violence is graphic and pathetic! It is a testament of a familyquake
Despite the fact that domestic violence is in the news every day and the usual unison of, “kill him, bury him under the sea, castrate him,” it is increasing. That means, lex tellionis does not reform; it only deforms and adds more fuel into the fire. Just yesterday I witnessed one myself as the lady jumped out weeping. I asked her if she needed my help, but she ignored me, and the man was calling her honey. What a messed up culture! They reminded me of the Beti tribe in Cameroon where if the man does not beat the woman, she will say that he does not love her. Nonetheless, why is domestic violence instead increasing? There is never a day now that you don’t read about domestic abuse. 
There is an African proverb that says that, "If a man does not find out what killed his father, that same thing will kill him too."  Americans refuse to consult history for reminders. There is a reason the Bible says, “Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen…..”[3] Where did all this begin that young people (both male and female) are too angry and violent these days? A few weeks ago I was visiting a school and a young man came to share with me how my speech had transformed him. He said, “The last time you were here, I used to be very angry, but I have learnt to control myself.” When he told me that he used to be very angry, I asked him why. He told me that he had a lot of things going on, especially the fact that he has been growing up without seeing his dad. His mother’s boyfriend is not doing better as they are always fighting. He feels like his father did a great evil to him because he should have come and taken him out of that place. Therefore, one major reason of domestic violence is the absence of a male figure in homes. [4]
The increase in divorce rates is not doing us justice too. Most kids do not recover from divorces even if their parents do. The Institute for Marriage and Public Policy (iMAPP) concluded that, “Teens and adults raised in single-parent families are at increased risk of committing crimes.”[5] It does not mean that marriage families do not raise those opportunities; it simply means that single families are better breeding grounds for angry and violent behaviors, and domestic violence is one of them. ABC News reports, “Vice President Joe Biden said Friday the nation needs to bring young men into the struggle against domestic violence by encouraging them to stand against the crime on college campuses.”[6] The only problem is that the majority of these young men are angry themselves. They should be taught on how to treat people. This has nothing to do with religion as some church men treat their wives worst. Teach them to treat people right! 
The third one is lack of proper role models. The society cherishes materialism over virtue; after all, the end justifies the means. They are all copycats of the violent culture. Take for example, a video that has gone viral is the video of a white male who seizes the microphone from a news anchor and said that, “fuck her right in the pussy.”[7] Would a decent culture enjoy such a video? The actor and the distributor would be ashamed in a normal and virtuous society. There is lack of role models and mentors. The guy is hailed as a hero! I have often told my students that I want them to look at me as their role model. That has contributed to my behavior because I have to set a better example. 
The violent women who exploit the weakness and one sidedness of the law are to blame too. It is not as if the women do not commit domestic violence; they do as you can ask Hope Solo.[8] However, the men are more the culprits in this crime because their force is usually disproportionate to the offence of the girlfriend or wife. You see, “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Most of the women in domestic abuse cases contributed in them because they struck the man first or nagged him all day long that he just exploded. Just as the woman in this video said, “If  a woman hits a man, she should expect to be hit back.[9]
Nonetheless, violence, whether physical or verbal is the weapon of the weak communicator. Young people are not taught to win their discussions by using their intellect. If someone holds a contrary view to theirs, they vacate the conversation or resort to ad hominems. Their verbal violent cliché is usually, “fuck you!” Physical violence will subsequently follow next. Look, if you have a point, why don’t you make it? That questions the type of education we are receiving nowadays. It is one of relativism; everybody is right, and no one is wrong. Children must be taught that we know in part; therefore, we should not get angry if someone disagrees with us. Otherwise, we are saying that we are infallible, so we know it all. Even if we killed all the men on earth, there will still be domestic violence as you have seen it in lesbian households. Consequently, the solution is not in trying to deform the male perpetrators; the key is in reforming them. Draconian measures have never reformed any society; they have kept it like a boiling cauldron that explodes with the least opportunity. Therefore, we must work to keep long lasting and happy marriages so our boys can grow with their fathers at home, be the right role models, teach our daughters to curb aggressive tendencies and finally develop an equitable society that seeks to reform rather than deform.

Until then, I just wish everyone a happy life on earth.

Roger Goodell's NFL and the Ravens' Miscarriage of Justice.

This is not a plaidorie for the devil or like they often say, “Being the devil’s advocate” because there is no devil here. I am just afraid that we are becoming very rancorous and spiteful as a society. We have left the Mosaic Era, yet we enjoy lex telionis. We are becoming specialists of deformation rather than reformation. It is beyond any debate that Ray Rice did a very bad thing in beating up his wife. He brought shame to himself and his family! The manner thereof is inconsequential because whether it was brutal or lightly, he should not have done it. It is an unacceptable behavior. ‎However, the NFL's and Raven's decisions are legally, socially and morally untenable. Legally, it will be breaking the double jeopardy, sociologically, the NFL overburdens Ray Rice' s family to function as a family because he will need to feed the very wife they are seeking to protect, and morally, once forgiven, you are free indeed!
I know that those of you who know me will say that we disagree with “this your thing of saying that we should let it go.” This time though, I want us to look at it as a society and see if we are treating each other fairly. Do unto others what you want them do unto you. Ray Rice is being unfairly treated here! Ray Rice had already been punished with a two game suspension. By suspending him a second time, the NFL and Ravens are violating the Double Jeopardy Rule. It is defined as, “The act of prosecuting a defendant a second time for an offense for which he has already been tried.”[1] At the same time, it is a violation of his Fifth Amendment Right. 
The government did not charge him; they assigned some form of community labor. That is not his problem; it is the burden the society has to bear for rashness! It is like a county sending you a letter that your traffic ticket was not well adjudicated because when they decided the first time, they did not have all the information. Take time and read well the Double Jeopardy rule and the 5 policies that underpin it. Double jeopardy extends to every spectrum of crime and punishment. Isn't Ray Rice supposed to cater for his wife? How is he going to do that if you stop him from doing what he does best? Whether they saw it or not is immaterial. If they did not see it, then due process was violated because it will mean they judged him on hearsay. Secondly, he has already served the sentence. They should blame themselves for the imprudence. They should have done a thorough investigation before disciplining him if they were really serious because only part of the video was shown to the public initially. It is not like there were two videos. It is one and the same video that they edited. Rice will be covered by Double Jeopardy rule and the extreme hardship law. His wife could turn and sue the NFL and Ravens for causing her the hardship too. Morally, once forgiven, you are forgiven. If your sins are paid for, they are paid. Remember, we are not discussing on the gravity of the offense because every normal human being knows it is despicable.
Goodell’s argument that they were not privy to the facts when they disciplined him the first time is still no excuse because they should have then waited until they had all the facts. They should not punish Ray Rice for their recklessness. The Bible says, “He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him (Prov 18:13).”It is late now to change their decision. They should have done that before in their first decision. I don't understand their rashness. Someone beats his wife and you give him only two games suspension; whether you see the video or not? He should have been suspended for two years initially! I was against the 2 games suspension. However, after he served it, it is immoral to bring another suspension or decision for the same offense. The man served his time, so he should be left alone. I don't even like the Ravens and his behavior, but I am looking at the concept of equity. It is the noble thing to do to bring him back. I hate it when hypocrites who do other more egregious things raise their voices so loud to condemn others. The young man made a mistake, and he paid the price. Unfortunately, people still want to destroy him. We should be a society that reforms and not one that deforms. I said earlier that the decisions from NFL and The Ravens will overburden the Rice family. His wife's interjection ascertains that.
Secondly, the jurisprudence on criminal law is founded on due process. You cannot pass judgment on anyone without due process. If they did not see the video, then they also violated the woman’s rights. It is inconceivable that the same question that was asked in the first century is the same we are trying to answer in the 21st century. Nicodemus asked the Sanhedrin, “Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth (Jn 7:51)?” Now I ask you, “Does our law judge a man before hearing from him and know what he did?" The NFL should blame itself for the thoughtlessness. It should have done proper investigation before punishing him. More so, the law is not retroactive.  
 Sociologically, there are no diminished expectations when Ray Rice married his then fiancée. If she felt that she was in danger, she would not have married him. By sacking and suspending him indefinitely, they fail to uphold the uberrima fides of the marriage. This will cause them hardship and even extreme hardship because he will not be able to provide for his wife again. Thus the theory of extreme hardship is not a matter of expediency. Matter of Gutierrez-Lopez, 21 I&N Dec. 479 (BIA 1996).
After all “Any hardship to a qualifying spouse must always be considered. See Watkins v. INS, 63 F.3d 844 (9th Cir. 1995). The extreme hardship Ray Rice will undergo is not related to the income of the wife because she makes very little money to maintain the lifestyle that the Husband has accustomed her. His suspension defeats the purpose of marriage and puts asunder what God has joined together; thereby, depriving Ray Rice of the opportunity and freedom to enjoy his marriage. This will even be a violation of his 14th Amendment.
The doctrine of extreme hardship does not end with financial hardships. It encompasses anything that will inflict pain and suffering on the spouse or the respondent. “In short, as we have often stated, extreme hardship is not a definable term of fixed and inflexible meaning, and the elements to establish extreme hardship are dependent upon the facts and circumstances of each case.”
In the Matter of Hwang, 10 I&N Dec. 448, 45 1 (BIA 1964), it was asserted that  Extreme hardship is "not a definable term of fixed and inflexible content or meaning," but "necessarily depends upon the facts and circumstances peculiar to each case." The peculiarity is that Ray Rice needs this job to feed his wife because he knows only how to play football as his numbers speak for themselves.You may like to read from his wife endorsing the theory of extreme hardship
Morally: the decision is ungodly. Even when the people caught the woman in flagrant adultery, Jesus still let her go. Ray Rice has even paid his debt with his suspension. Those who think that they are without fault should seek to reform and not to deform, to restore and not to destroy. Many people advocating for Ray Rice’s pound of flesh may have done worse than him. It is not a time to destroy the young man; it is a time to build him up to a better person.
Behold the source of the devilry, the society! We start by having the right priorities. I don't understand why entertainers earn more than teachers, doctors, lawyers, engineers etc. As much as I hate the pedestal that the society has placed these entertainers, the onus is still not with them. Worst still, Ray Rice is playing for a team I don't even like, but that will be injustice to make him pay twice for the same offense. I have to separate my personal bias from equity. Ray is not special, so you should not think that his football abilities are at play here. Let us remove the name of Ray Rice and use Mr. Nobody. Mr. Nobody did a terrible thing beating his wife. We all agree. His employers decided that it merited a two day work suspension. We all say, "nay, that is too lenient," yet they did not revise it. He served his time and went back to work. Then a harridan shows up in the market with a video of the same incident where Mr. Nobody was beating his wife. The company cannot come back to change their initial decision. That is what I am saying.
Therefore, I urge the NFL and the Ravens to reinstate him because he will be suffering twice for a crime he has already paid the price. In addition, the wife is the loser here than him. They should write down a clear policy with domestic abuse.

Until then, I strongly condemn NFL's and Raven’s decisions.
