But we know this cop killed this kid…this isn’t a case of being ‘falsely accused’

Obviously the officer felt that his life was endangered by this kid. There is way more to this story than is being told and right now everything is one sided – a story that I don’t give any credibility to.

he’s a murderer . he should feel afraid for the rest of his life

there is almost nothing more to this story

cop abusively addresses two young men … boys really … for walking in the street while black

even if the boys committed theft, as accused, pulling a gun on them is illegal

boys shrug him off, as they’re about to arrive at their destination

cop becomes (instantly? steroidally?) enraged, and abruptly and violently opens his door into the boys, making it bounce back toward him (assaulting the boys with his car door, door assaulting him on the rebound … is this how his face got hurt?)

even more enraged, cop chooses to attempt to pull one of the boys into the car by his neck

likely that boy … young man … michael brown, struggled in self-defense, while being illegally strangled and assaulted by this cop, as the cop attempted to kidnap him

cop becomes more enraged at young mister brown’s attempts to resist being kidnapped, pulls out his gun and points it at the young man, who, up ’til now still has not committed any arrestable offense recognized by the world of law

about this time, possibly the young man, in self-defense, attempts to either push away or take the gun, to save his own life from murder by cop (i don’t actually believe this . this is gratuitous surmising in response to the cop’s claim that brown tried to take his weapon) . in fact, the cop originally lied and reported that the boys were ‘suspects’ having supposedly (finally a police report … any proof?) robbed a nearby store

really what happened at this time, and another possible explanation as to how the officer got ‘swelling in his face’ (if it wasn’t from banging his face into something after the fact to ‘prove’ he had an excuse to put ten bullets into a young man for walking while black) is that the officer darren wilson fired his weapon from within the cruiser, from very near to his own face … AT the young man who had dared to walk in the street while black

then, the two young man hightailed it out of there, attempting to escape someone who was quite apparently trying to kill them

the cop chose to chase and shoot some more

when his victim had already been shot and already stopped running, with hands in the air, the officer darren wilson executed him for putting his hands in the air while black

any questions?

legalese : use of force

Whereas people have been and are being threatened, terrorized, assaulted, wrongfully arrested, illegally detained, incarcerated, injured, frightened, belittled, insulted, intimidated, beaten, or shot dead while unarmed, or while presenting no threat to any person, or while committing no illegal act;

Whereas citizens are the best informed members of communities to define and recognize abuse by authorities paid by citizens; or by mercenaries employed by government, business, or private citizens; or by self-appointed vigilantes;

Whereas the history of police and other government officials have failed to adequately address these illegal and violent uses of force;

Whereas those so treated are under continued threat of further abuse by authorities paid by citizens; or by mercenaries employed by government, business, or private citizens; or by self-appointed vigilantes in retaliation for reporting such treatment;

Whereas conflicts of interest posed by these agencies investigating themselves have produced corrupt results;

 

We hereby enact this new legislation which shall

Disable and repeal all special privacy protections for every ‘security’ related person and job description now experiencing enhanced protections of their privacy, including, but not limited to: police, mercenary private security, city managers, prosecutors, judges, ‘correctional’ officers or any other titled jail or prison personnel, or any person in possession of authority or influence to wield or direct violent enforcement tactics;

Require the creation of a paid elected public safety/police accountability commission of at least twelve citizens, all of whom are not and have never been otherwise employed in the position of law enforcement; design said commission with respect to the proposal developed and submitted by the members of PUEBLO and supported by the vast majority of the people who appeared to consider it before the Oakland City Council Public Safety Committee;

Require every person employed in a position from which force can be used to acquire obedience or submission to sign a job description agreement which includes, but is not limited to, agreeing to have personnel and investigative records related to any and all accusations of any and all illegal activities or uses of force be readily available for public viewing online and via requests for that information at all times at no charge to the employers of said employees, aka the people

Require that police and mercenary aka ‘security’ forces abide by use of force standards set by aforementioned paid elected commission of at least twelve citizens;

Require that all relevant laws, past, present, and future, shall describe and define the word “threaten” to include such concepts as: the living and deadly fact that an armed police officer or private security for big business, are, by definition, to be considered armed and dangerous at all times: i.e. subject to whatever uses of force might be deemed necessary for a victim or potential victim of imminent harm to effect a successful defense against attack by said armed official;

Require that such defense against uses of force be considered, ‘reasonable’, ‘acceptable’ or ‘appropriate’ use of force;

Require that the investigation of every incident which includes use of force by police or any government employee, including the physical or political or managerial use of force by every government paid person, shall be accomplished by aforementioned public safety/police accountability commission

Require that every “use of force” investigation shall include immediate and mandatory follow-up drug testing for all substances: especially steroids, alcohol, and any other substances past, present and future which are or have been found to induce a heightened state of agitation; require that such testing be funded directly by the officer who has been shown to have used force, or by the union to which the officer belongs; disallow the use of public funds for such testing

Require that every such “use of force” investigation shall include immediate sequestration of each and every officer of the law being accused of using excessive force, for the purpose of questioning and interrogation by citizen investigators appointed by the aforementioned citizen police accountability commission, and that any officer who is shown by evidence or witness statement to have used excessive force be arrested and arraigned for every applicable law which makes such actions illegal for the general population

Require criminal prosecution of every person found in violation of law, without special considerations for those in positions of power

Require criminal prosecutions of use of force standards set by the people, double criminal penalties for any and every person found in violation of said standards while also holding government or other ‘security’ power – either by direct or indirect (mercenary) employment – to exercise said authority with a loaded weapon or the power to enact laws or instigate or allow the violent enforcement of laws by police or mercenary forces (including, but not limited to private security forces);

Require, for any public servant shown to have committed excessive use of force by an independent commission, immediate and permanent removal from, and ineligibility for, any government, or government funded, employment – including but not limited to, law enforcement, and including any position of employment which empowers a person to use force in the commission of their duties, no matter how remote; this section completely disqualifies a person from running for and/or holding publicly funded political office, as those holding such offices are in power to use police forces against the public

Require complete and permanent disarmament of any person found guilty of abuse of authority by said elected citizen commission under this or any relevant law

These laws shall be valid and applicable immediately within the customary established period of simple legal review, and shall be retroactively applied to any case to which they might apply which, for any reason, comes up for review, including that any person shall receive, upon request, a new investigation into any use of force by government paid personnel which occurred at any time in the past, with no statute of limitations applying; such re-investigations into past uses of force by police and other so empowered public employees shall commence immediately upon passage, with cases where a member of the public is currently incarcerated under questionable circumstances regarding use of force by police taking precedence. Prioritizing thereafter shall be done upon requests by the aforementioned police accountability commission, and members of the public, in that order.

take back the verdict

take back the verdict
we don’t understand your reason
take back the verdict
we don’t understand your view
take back the verdict
this decision’s worse than treason
if you don’t take back this judgement
there ain’t nothing we can do
to stop the war in l.a.
all the people are uprising
there’s war in the bay
we are certain what we saw
there’s a war on the way
every color sympathizing
reevaluate your judgement
or eliminate the law

whisper of spirit

©

in only a moment
hot turns to cold
what once was a body
harboring a soul
now empty, depleted
all energy drains
whisper of spirit
is all that remains

hovering remnants
of energy pure
as a wish for tomorrow
bringing no cure
wish turns to vapor
body to dust
crumbling emotion
like metal to rust

where once were ideas
plans, hopes, and dreams
departed in panic
no fabric, no seams
no binding or glue
puts the body back whole
what’s left, only memories
of each stolen soul

the reaper rejoices
consuming its prey
no worry for consequence
no one will pay

lies entered on paper
“suspect had a knife”
reported as duty
grand theft of a life
“suspect had a phone
which looked like a gun.
i feared for my safety”
this can’t be undone

lies entered on paper
excuse the offense
“he refused to obey me”
the usual pretense
“he fired a weapon”
no residue found
lies entered on paper
no one was around

reported as duty
grand theft of a life
lies written on paper
“suspect” had a wife
a mom and a dad
sister and brother
“suspect” was a father
and friend to another

in the reaper’s assessment
“suspect was black”
a good enough reason
to shoot in the back

reported as duty
murder becomes plain
the job of the reaper
becoming mundane
lies written on paper
“suspect had a gun”
reported as duty
this can’t be undone

breath has escaped him
along with his blood
he’s left there for hours
displayed in the mud
while reaper reports
“suspect did a crime”
maybe a witness
will show up this time

spirit surrounds
as mere humans lament
particles left after
final breath spent
a sparkle in darkness
star in black night
a dream in the morning
fresh air in daylight

the reaper on duty
reporting all lies
to the reaper in charge
choosing who dies

where once were ideas
plans, hopes, and dreams
departed in panic
no fabric, no seams
no binding or glue
puts the body back whole
what’s left, only memories
of each stolen soul

hovering remnants
of energy pure
as a wish for tomorrow
bringing no cure
wish turns to vapor
body to dust
crumbling emotion
like metal to rust

in only a moment
hot turns to cold
what once was a body
harboring a soul
now empty, depleted
all energy drains
whisper of spirit
is all that remains
