Day 5 of Violent Revolution in Ukraine

I heard two loud bangs but at this point, with all the constant noise and yelling, I barely flinch.

I just read on BBC that Ukraine’s Prime Minister, Mykola Avarov, said, “People should not think that the government lacks available resources to put an end to this. It is our constitutional right and obligation to restore order in the country.”

Let’s talk about constitutional rights, shall we? A constitutional right is primarily a legal right given to the citizens of a nation, state or social group. You pretty much made it impossible for these people to protest peacefully by infringing on their civil rights and now you want to discuss constitutional rights!?! The very rights that you manipulate for your own needs?

I don’t condone violence but I understand why these people are discontent. There is a reason why freedom of speech is America’s first amendment. George Washington said it best, “For if Men are to be precluded from offering their Sentiments on a matter, which may involve the most serious and alarming consequences, that can invite the consideration of Mankind, reason is of no use to us; the freedom of Speech may be taken away, and, dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep, to the slaughter.”

Also, awesome job – the government threatening the people…

And there goes bang number 3 and 4… and 5 and 6… and 7
