Welcome to Ask Willie D, Rocks Off's advice column where the Geto Boys MC answers reader questions about matters, in his own words, "funny, serious or unpredictable." Something on your mind? Ask Willie D!
Dear Willie D:
Why is there so much division in the world? Maybe I'm naïve but I am 53 years old, and I don't recall ever feeling so helpless about the state of humanity. Everyday all day all you hear and read about is crime, hate, confrontations, pain, and illness. Yes there is the occasional soft and fuzzy good story thrown in, but overall the world is a sad place.
There was a time when I trusted the police, but law enforcement in America seems to have lost its way in terms of respect for the citizens they serve and the badge they wear and our government is just sitting on the sidelines eating popcorn. I feel for the future generations to come. I'm a licensed gun owner, but I still fear for me and my family's safety. What can we do to fix this societal dysfunctionality?
