Witness the poise and civility of the motorcyclist. See how enterprising and considerate he is to save police time and effort by killing his confrères himself. No truncheon was blunted as he hewed his way across that carpark, no riot shield spattered with the matter of his late adversary's erstwhile innards. His playful cannonades went unanswered. The light hand of the constabulary is a privilege afforded the motorcyclist on account of his love of community and forswearing of intoxicants, his respectable role models and responsible father. That is all. The people of Ferguson and Baltimore would do well to learn these lessons by heart, as these—and only these—are the principles of civilization that separate the internecine hellholes of their hometowns from the scene of serenity that is Waco. #RevdHosking #eyeplank
