SWAT Teams

Police Raid Berwyn Heights Mayor’s Home, Kill His 2 Dogs

From the text:

Spokesmen for the Sheriff’s Office and Prince George’s police expressed regret yesterday that the mayor’s dogs were killed. But they defended the way the raid was carried out, saying it was proper for a case involving such a large amount of drugs.
Sgt. Mario Ellis, a Sheriff’s Office spokesman, said the deputies who entered Calvo’s home “apparently felt threatened” by the dogs.

I say many feel threatened by swat teams. Does the Sheriff really believe these acts,”Ensure domestic tranquility” as our constitution states is his job. Whom are we afraid?

Demands vs Request

Page 76 12 X 12 book Seventh Step
The chief activator of our characters defects has been self centered fear- primarily fear that we would lose something we already possessed or we would fail to get something we demanded. Living upon the basis of unsatisfied demands, we were in a state of continual disturbance and frustration. Therefore no peace could be be had unless we could find a way to reduce these demands. The difference between a demand and a simple request is plain to anyone.

The above mentioned spiritual thought is far reaching. When taken in its entirety, it includes all facets of our life. The fear created by the demands can create resentments, our number one offender to a better spiritual life

It can come into play when we are thinking we are doing good. Sometimes we make demands when we should make requests, and other times when we make requests it is none of our business at all. Thus relationships are harmed or very hard to reestablish.

A few years ago my youngest son made the statement, “Dad comes home with his thoughts all tangled up sometimes”. Well the past few days this is happening to me again. The pdoc says it is depression and suggested an anti-depressant . My wife says we are just tired from our eleven day trip. I think I am just getting old.

The most likely situation is all three of us are correct. I fear the depression the most. I prefer not to take the anti-depressants. They have some many side effects. Also they take so long to take affect. Of course, being exhausted is a factor and it to will take a short time to correct. The pdoc and I discussed the factor of not getting old that has never been a solution for my manic depressive disorder (except once).

The part of my depression the most scary is the part my young son diagnosed at a very early age. This limits my activities. The three symptoms of my illness at present are: scattered thoughts, chronic fatigue, and worthlessness.

I will set set forth a plan to deal with each.
