Important to Wait and Not Incite Violence

The important thing is to wait until the investigation is complete and all information has been gathered, usually about 8 weeks. Jumping to conclusions has gotten many innocent police killed recently, even thought when all the facts are in they are rarely found to be at fault. Inciting people to violence hurts. Let me explain. I was walking past a depressed looking black man on a bench last week. I softly said "Good Morning." He threw his drink at me and began to follow me, asking "Do you have a problem with me?" I tried to walk away, but he was faster. He again asked me if I had a problem with him. As I turned back to say 'No!' he slapped my face. Recently a Black Lives Matter rally was held in this park. Was this mentally unstable man incited to violence toward white people? I don't know, but I am so glad it wasn't worse. We need to be aware of our influence on others, especially when we could incite violence toward innocent people.
