A comfort zone denotes that limited set of behaviors that a person will engage without becoming anxious. Alternatively denoted as a "plateau" it describes that set of behaviors that have become comfortable, without creating a sense of risk. A person's personality can be described by his or her comfort zones. Highly successful persons may routinely step outside their comfort zones, to accomplish what they wish. A comfort zone is a type of mental conditioning that causes a person to create and operate mental boundaries that are not real. Such boundaries create an unfounded sense of security. Like inertia, a person who has established a comfort zone in a particular axis of his or her life, will tend to stay within that zone without stepping outside of it. To step outside a person's comfort zone, he must experiment with new and different behaviors, and then experience the new and different responses that then occur within his environment.From Wikpedia
I just wrote an obituary for a 21 year old young man, Jason Riley. Jason was shot in the back by gang bangers near 69th & Ashland last week. Like Jason's Leo 2004 Classmate Steve Lyons, there was almost no concern over the cold-blooded thug-killing of a productive black American.
I accuse the news media of creating a Thug Comfort Zone here in Chicago. Only cases where Police can and will be accused of abuse based upon race receive any attention - the more ludicrous and outrageous accusations get tried in the public glare with the full support of cynical creeps who sit their milky fat asses on Editorial Boards.
I use cynical creeps because 1. - they are cynical - 'Let's get into it!' and sell some papers - easier than being good at your work and 2. creeps because only a creep would actively engage in 'criminal' enterprise to enrich lawyers and thugs, while bankrupting public monies and public confidence.
Today, the Chicago Tribune which seemed to let the stupid slumber - returned to the folly of having the think tankers and lawsuit louses hand feed them an 'investigative series' focusing on Police Shooting Roundtables.
Jason Riley was killed because thugs are unafraid of the law and know that the idiots in the News Media and the cretins on TV will take their sides - shortly followed by a lawsuit that would bankrupt a small Duchy in Europe.
Here's the obituary of Jason Riley:
The Leo High School Family mourns the passing of Jason Riley, 21 – Leo High School Class of 2004. Jason Riley was murdered on Chicago Streets.
Jason is the beloved son of Rev. Willie and Mrs. Gale Riley of the Center of Hope The Chosen and dear brother of Michael Riley of the Leo High School Class of 2008.
In his four years, at Leo Jason served as Class President and was Class Valedictorian for the Class of 2004; lettered in football, baseball and was a dominant member of the Leo Boxing Team.
In 2003, Michael Hirsley of the Chicago Tribune featured Jason in which the young athlete told of his dream to capture the Golden Gloves Title at 125 lbs. and Jason did just that in 2003. Jason was completing his college studies begun at Monmouth College and coached Little League Baseball in the Marquette Park neighborhood as well as assisted with the Leo Boxing Program as a volunteer.
Leo President Robert W. Foster mourns the loss of a leader who inspired so many to avoid the lure of the street through commitment to academics, athletics and being a good Christian. The Leo High School Family will join the Riley Family in celebrating the life of Jason with a viewing of the body at:
