My late mother had a saying that she shared many a time while she was here:
In other words, don’t overextend yourself in words or deeds. It’s apparent that Edward Cagney Matthews wasn’t familiar with this phrase. Had he been, it’s unlikely, while embarking on his latest episode of despicable, racist behavior that was captured on video, that he would’ve shared his home address and dared folks to pay him a visit to confront him.
Alarmed and angry, and mostly restrained, about 100 folks took him up on his offer, protesting until he was arrested and charged with several hate crimes. Par for the course, “Cagney,” as he was called by some of the local police who responded to calls from neighbors, later ‘apologized’ and blamed his behavior on ‘being drunk.’
Last I read, one of the effects of alcohol is that it lowers inhibitions, by definition, constraints. That means his consumption only freed what was already present.
No thanks, “Cagney.”
