Reflections On The Michael Brown Murder
Michael Brown's killer gets a free ride, for now.
Bigots who put down Brown, Yellow and Black should look at White North America.
In North America Our White Cops Are Bullies.
They kill kids and rape women without any consequence.
The shooting of Michael Brown occurred on August 9, 2014, in Ferguson, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis. Brown, an 18-year-old black young person, was fatally shot by Darren Wilson, 28, a white police officer.
I have been a visitor to Missouri maybe a dozen times and can't say for sure but believe it's the most backwards and most racist State in the Union. Maybe it's tied with a few other places on earth, but, in any case nothing of a racist nature in Missouri should surprise anyone.
On the other hand, the culture of African-Americans in Missouri is awesome and that cultural heritage makes a a visit to that State worthwhile. I enjoyed the esprit, music, authors, artists and the jois de vive.
When the state prosecutor, good-ole-boy Robert McCulloch, said he tried to get an indictment from a Grand Jury he lied because it is clear he didn't try. He tried to avert an indictment while making a show of pretext because his team stands solid together; cops-and-prosecutors in Missouri protect each other no mater how heinous the crime. It has to be that way. White Missouri rules.
Even an incompetent prosecutor like Robert McCulloch should be able to indict a ham sandwich under the Missouri Grand Jury procedures if that's what he wanted. I assure you he did not want that. He went home a hero and the cops of Fergusson were told to protect their club house and let the rest of the town burn as the visiting looters loaded up on booty through broken windows. A few abandoned cop cars were left in harms way. Probably a few thieves were let out of the local bucket and told which places to hit. I hope you understand this is just keeping it real. Yes, this happens.
McCulloch on November 24, 2014 set mayhem in motion preceding American Thanksgiving Day by calling a late-night press conference at 9:00PM as growing crowds gathered waited for two days in Ferguson's streets.
McCulloch, in his press conference, praised the killer and attacked the deceased victim.
The parochial prosecutor tore strips off victim Michael Brown, accusing him of petty crimes he could not defend against because he is dead. The wayward prosecutor explained that Brown's killer, a white cop, couldn't be sent to court for the crime because Michael Brown was such a badass. Well, Michael Brown was black and the killer cop is a white guy. Case dismissed. No charges will be laid unless a very wise and renowned Civil Rights leader (and about the only American community leader to make sense on anything in a long time), gets his way. Alfred Charles "Al" Sharpton feels he has a shot at bringing a federal civil rights case against the cop. Well. Why not? That's what it is--a murder committed because the killer was white and the victim was a poor black. That's MO history repeated over and over and over again. Go Al! That cop needs to be charged and brought before a real Court of Justice.
The death of Sammy Yatim occurred on the evening of July 27, 2013, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Yatim, an 18-year-old Toronto man, was shot eight times and missed once by 30-year-old Toronto Police Service officer James Forcillo.
Trayvon Benjamin Martin was a 17-year-old African American from Miami Gardens, Florida who was fatally shot by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer.
Police Officer Arthur Roldan found himself in the unwelcome glare of the media spotlight when prosecutors accused him of raping his former girlfriend at gunpoint in a Midland Beach parking lot.
When 20-year-old Sarah Smith got into an accident with a motorcyclist in 2008, it was nothing but bad news -- she was driving with a suspended license. It got worse. When police showed up, officer Adam Skweres took Smith aside and implied that he could either make it look like the accident was her fault or give the other party a ticket. It depended on whether she'd agree to perform unspecified sexual favors.
A young woman in Milwaukee called the cops when someone threw a brick through her window. One of the cops who came to help raped her.
"Police sexual misconduct is common, and anyone who maintains it isn't doesn't get it," says retired Seattle police chief Norm Stamper, author of the book Breaking Rank.r />
I feel sad and worried for the kids our kids will bring into this troubled world. They must face the mess we leave behind.
