Oh Noes! Quelle Surprise!
So let me get this straight.
A Grand Jury has been deliberating for three months regarding whether or not a police officer should be indicted and tried for killing an unarmed black boy.
Well, a very muscular, football-playing strong-arm robbing black boy. Who had been committing crimes earlier in the evening.
The police officer contended he had been assaulted by the boy when he approached him and the boy was trying to relieve him of his sidearm. People have been shot – rightfully so – for less.
And he was. And he died.
And the Grand Jury decided, after listening to testimony and viewing evidence, that there was no true bill to indict the officer.
And the media, who has been watching the proceedings like a hawk, and reporting daily if there was no indictment, said that there would be rioting, continued to predict rioting. criminal damage, looting and violence.
Adjacent to the legitimate protests of ‘injustice’.
And, it came to pass, there was rioting, damage, yatta…yatta…yatta…
Funny, when there are similar circumstances surrounding a White boy, who has been dispatched by a police officer (White or Black), that there are no riots, looting, etc. Or a White woman allegedly killed by a famous Black man? And the riots after he was found not guilty? What? You don’t remember the riots?
Oh, that’s right. There weren’t any!
I smell Lenin’s useful idiots, yet again..
Sad that a legitimate concern – crime in Black areas – when addressed by White cops (or any cops) is followed by destruction of businesses in those same areas! You have cancer of the arm – let’s cut off your head!
It doesn’t help that now a NYC grand jury fails to indict a (White) police officer for a choke hold gone wrong. Against a Black man.
And we continue to have violence, arson and attacks in cities across the Nation, much of it to Black-owned businesses in the same neighborhoods as the crime. Including the store where the Black guy had committed strong-arm robbery earlier that evening.
We, as a culture, severely messed-up the
former slave, Negro, African-American, Black subculture. As we have Asian, Latino and Indian. And I’m certain those subcultures have disproportionate crimes in their neighborhoods too, many foisted upon them by their own people.
But you don’t see those other subcultures rioting about their mistreatment. Demanding their opinion, which amounts to mob rule, be the law of the land.
I’m all about equal justice.
It’s sad the disenfranchised can be manipulated by powerful people with an agenda into voting by violence for vigilante justice and destroying their own neighborhoods.
And now it’s reported some colleges and universities are giving students who attend protests permission to take exams later, lest they miss the protests!
The foxes are indeed running the hen house! Frances Fox Piven, is one of the foxes…
