Clay Higgins on Crime

 

 


Resounding voice for the Thin Blue Line

Our nation has come to be divided along lines that were long ago erased, including racial divide. I have been a street cop for 13 years and my own relationship amongst the black communities that I've served reflects my strong belief in Constitutionally sound, compassionate police service. Somehow, we have allowed our citizenry to become influenced by insidious forces which endeavor to divide us whereby we may be controlled. This unfounded manifestation of hatred must be tackled from all sides by Patriot Americans of every color and creed. We must meet this hatred wherever it surfaces with a stern, unwavering and unified voice of reason. We need not tolerate such hatred and division in our country. We need not allow the planting of such a seed. We must stand shoulder to shoulder, brother to brother, Patriots all, united as one, against this evil. In Congress, I will be a resounding voice for the Thin Blue Line.

Penitentiaries should be for PENITENCE, not punishment

The original Christian pilgrims reflected on the world's history of human incarceration and saw it as a poor reflection of their own Christian beliefs of compassion, forgiveness, and redemption. They knew that incarceration throughout history equaled one thing: A dungeon.

Our founding Christian pilgrims determined that a convicted man would be housed in a clean, secure place, treated with respect as a fellow child of God, provided basic food and water and encouraged to seek PENITENCE. This is why our jail system in America is called the PENITENTIARY SYSTEM. Our jails were never supposed to be about punishment. They were always designed to offer penitence. Because a penitent man punishes himself, does he not?

I speak across America to law enforcement gatherings, and almost NOBODY knows this story. We have strayed SO FAR from the original intent of our beautifully envisioned Penitentiary system that the Americans who manage the system don't even know of its origin.
