Know When To Walk Softly

I was raised on the streets of New York City in the borough of the Bronx which means that from birth I was taught how to behave when the police were upset. Lesson one is when the cops are angry, one should walk and talk mighty softly because it makes no sense to get guys who carry guns made at you. Ibragim Todashev is angry because the FBI and Boston police stopped his son in order to check into the boy’s relationship with the Boston Marathon Massacre. There is no doubt that his son knew the boys, hung around with the boys and had a reputation for informing the world that he supported Muslim terrorists.

It is not a crime to know people who are criminals. However, according to dad, “they shoot somebody and then a shot in the head to make sure. These just aren’t FBI agents, they’re bandits.” The man might have a point since the boy was unarmed and wound up with several bullets in his head. To repeat Lesson One, talk softly when cops ask you questions about a buddy who wound up killing people and causing others to lose limbs.
