It appears police officers get a medal (get set free) for killing unarmed men and woman in America. Police officers are granted a bullet-proof vest, something used to protect them, yet they are fast to shot unarmed people, in their chest or back; places where the police officers themselves has protection.
Lives are forever changed because of a police officer’s decision to use a weapon of “mass destruction!” Explain how can a police officer be afraid of their life when the person is either running away from them, or unarmed and instead of grabbing their taser, they see fit to grab their weapon. Their weapon that is used to pierce through flesh. Their weapon that is used to tear up nerve endings and send messages of pain to the brain constantly until that pain has subsided in some way and in these cases… death. Their weapon that is used to tear apart organs such as kidneys, lungs, and much more. Their weapons that is used to pierce and tear through bone(s). Their weapons that is used to burst a person’s heart.
It is very troublesome to hear a judge set a person free that kills another. It is very troublesome to hear a jury refuse to indict a police officer that literally kills another by bursting their heart in little pieces due to a bullet from their police issued weapon. I would love to see what would happen if a judge’s unarmed child was killed by a police officer. Would that officer be set free? I would love to see what would happen if a jury member who is serving on a jury trial just received word their child, who is unarmed, was killed by a police officer. Would that police officer be set free?
Everyone is so quick to pull up a person’s criminal record, or say they are a bad person and their past caught up to them. It is troublesome to hear what others think what a black person’s life is worth. There are many whites that had served jail time for a variety of different crimes and there are white people that are on the sexual offender’s list. I am not trying to make this out to be a black and white thing, but take a moment to look back at your own life for a second. You see a black guy and a white guy, who will you judge first? When we were kids, we did not know about black and white. Movies, peers, and family mold us to believe how we believe today about race.
America does not want to talk about race and for this, we will never grow as a people. I am not just black. I am not just white. I am of mixed race (black and white). So when America see me as a black man, and police officers see me as a black man, we will never move forward. I am of mixed race and both races makes up Boston Brian, not just the black and not just the white. I used to have a lot of respect for police officers. Just as society say… “One bad apple can spoil the bunch.” How are we to view police officers then? Are we to view them as one bad police officer means all officers are bad? After all, this is what society say about people right?
People jump’s on society’s band wagon when it is convenient for them. People say society is right for judging a person by race. People say society is right for saying police officers cannot do any wrong. People say society is right for saying one bad apple spoils the bunch, unless it is their family member that society may be talking about.
So many people want to live in America, but why? We are not America, the beautiful. We are America, the Tyrant. The cruel and oppressive ruler as police officers get away by being their own judge and executor of the law. The cruel and oppressive ruler of shooting first and never ask questions. The cruel and oppressive ruler in turning their head the other way when they know the police actions are unjust and cannot be truthfully justified. When people can say they want their country back and this is not right when President Obama was elected into office and then re-elected into office, it really show the true color of most Americans.
In closing I will say this. America better wake up. So many police officers have open season on black people and people with disabilities. So many people are quick to say the police are justified in their killings, even though the person is unarmed. Before you judge another black person in this county, remember and recognized a few things. Us Americans uses a lot of things that were made by those that are black. Just to name a few, for there are a lot more than few, as we appreciate the traffic light from causing accidents and long traffic build-ups, compared to stop signs, you can thank Garrett Morgan. He also invented the first gas mask used in World War One and by fire fighters. Whenever you turn on a light, you are using one of the first inventions by Lewis Latimer. When we all get to that age where we may need cataract(s) removed, the doctors will use a tool made by Dr. Patricia Bath to help in that process. When you complain about that 90 degree heat and need some comfort via air conditioner, think of Fredrick M. Jones. Whenever you need to dry your clothes, rather commercially or at home, you can thank G.T. Sampson for the invention of the clothes dryer. For those rock stars and people that enjoy rock music, Robert F. Flamming Jr invented the guitar. Your loved one is in the hospital and need open heart surgery. Now, procedures are in place to improve the surgery all the time, but it could not had been done if it wasn’t for Surgeon Daniel Hale Williams, who performed the first successful open heart surgery in 1893. Had you sent a text message today? Had you called someone on your cellular phone, or 911 from your cellular phone? Henry T. Sampson invented the first Cellular Phone. There are many more, but why is this important? Anyone can create and invent things to make life better of course, but would these things really had been created by the blacks listed if they were shot and killed by a police officer or a judgmental person as the bullet races through their bodies; destroying everything in its path?
