The FLY Discussion: Is Celebrating Death the American Way?

As I began to wind down my weekend with the closing minutes of Celebrity Apprentice, I was quite surprised that the programing was interrupted by Breaking News Accompanied by an announcement by our President Barack Obama.

The Breaking News? The Man The United States Declared war upon Ten years prior had not only been captured, but HE HAD BEEN KILLED. What Man is This? The Same Man Americans held totally responsible for the lives of thousands that were lost on the Morning Of September 11th 2001. Osama Bin Laden.

This was totally unexpected on my part, an I didn’t quite know how to take it.

What did this all really Mean?

America set out to kill him, they did that, ok, fine. But as I looked upon the news castings, I saw the American people take to the streets and Celebrate. I mean CELEBRATE!

I’m talking dougie’ing in the Streets.

I must tell you that this bothers me. I know very well what this man was responsible for, and I also can relate to a sense of relief that this Killer is off the Streets. But I’m not pulling out my dancing shoes. That’s almost inappropriate to take that much Joy in someone’s death. Once agin, I’m fully aware of his awful accomplishments before some of you get your panties in a bunch, But the electric slide down Pennsylvania Avenue? Nah. This is my humble Opinion, but I’d love to hear what some of Fly Society has to say.

Is it Right to Celebrate Death?

Your Thoghts?

-Stay Fly!

    I couldn’t agree with you more! I understand patriotism, don’t get me wrong, but at the end of the day its a life that has been taken. Americans are so blinded by patriotism– murder is not something to be celebrated. It’s inhumane to dance at the death of another human being. Yes, this is a man that many can say is responsible for the death of thousands, but I don’t see how his death will offer closure. It will not reverse the events of 9/11 or bring back loved ones.

    It’s even more appalling to me that the reward for his death is 25 million dollars. Since when do we reward murder, and aren’t we a nation in massive debt along with other issues to face ( i.e unemployment, homelessness, starvation…)?

    This is just dead ass wrong–I’m disgusted.
