I was scrolling through Facebook and I noticed a friend shared a link to an article. Taking out politics and how people feel about the president I was trying to be objective and read what the opposition to my opinion thinks. I always attempt to do this so I can have an understanding of opposing thought processes, and view points to the aim of having an intellectual conversation with people about these issues in the future. When I read the article (which entirely was alarming) I came across the most terrifying paragraph I have ever read stated by Brandy Lee a Yale psychiatrist:
" "We are now entering my specialty: public health approaches to violence prevention, and how to stop epidemics of violence before they happen," Lee added. "Individual violence is hardly predictable, since even the most violent individuals are not violent most of the time, but societal violence is entirely predictable. Prevention is still hard to talk about, since we must act before we see things unfold, but it is highly effective. It is true of pandemics, and it is true of mental health. We can enlighten ourselves through science and prevent catastrophes before they occur. "
I cannot even begin to state how what she's saying is not only a blatant disregard and disrespect for our constitution of These United States of America, but an out right burning of people's civil liberties. She is out right advocating for the complete disregard of due process and the fact that our Judicial system works based on people being innocent UNTIL proven guilty. People don't understand right now that our civil liberties outlined in the constitution are not subject to a temporary suspension in a pandemic or any other time.
I'll link the article below but I thought y'all might want to see just what people are saying right now.
