Moments following President Obama statement “All Americans should be deeply troubled by the fatal shootings of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minnesota.” Protestors took to the streets organizing visual demonstrations accompanied by a strong police presence.
Little did they know, that they too, where going to be in the headlines.
Prayers have been answered as the culling of corruption manifested in downtown Dallas, Texas late Thursday July 7, 16. A total of 11 police officers where wounded in this mass shooting, 5 of which resulted in fatalities. The shooter remains at large as officers target African American activist registered gun owners as suspects wanted for questioning.
To understand the circumstance of the Dallas massacre, you must have knowledge of the preluding events. Philandro Castile was a law-biding citizen permitted to conceal carry. When the officer asked for his identification, he was shot 5 times. No acts of hostility displayed his life ended within inches of his family as the officer yelled, “Fuck”.
Alton Sterling received similar yet less courteous treatment. When asked for his identification he was promptly tasered then tackled. While lying on his back, arms by his side, a secondary officer places his service weapon to his chest and discharges 6 rounds. No weapon owned by Mr. Sterling was retrieved.
Tomi Lahren of The Blaze post #FinalThoughts as a commentary piece on the incidents above within 48 hours of the tragedy. In her segment, Tomi meticulously devalues Mr. Sterling character by attacking presumptive doubt with his criminal history. She even goes as far to describe the cell phone footage as “crappy”.
The words of Tomi Lahren comment spread just as news of yet another black male was found hanging from a tree near Charles Allen entrance in Piedmont Park, Atlanta Georgia. Due to a current the current political climate of the city, local police have attempted to sweep this under the rug ruling it a suicide. However community leaders frustrated with the conclusion successfully publicized the crime and now FBI is investigating.
On May 31, 2016 Ricky Riley posted a candid interview with artist, activist and entrepreneur David Banner. During the conversation, Mr. Banner says, “If you want to solve the problem of white supremacy there’s only two things you can do”, “White supremacy only respects the loss of life and the loss of finance”, “if those cops felt like if they killed a black man, woman or child and something was going to happen to their families or them personally. They wouldn’t do it.”
In conclusion, American poet Langston Hughes once wrote “Negroes – sweet and docile, meek, humble and kind: beware the day – they change their mind”. I think you’re witnessing that day but now it’s not a black thing, it’s a class thing. Not a white thing but a rights thing. If social enterprises like Bail-Buddy.com are not federally endorsed for judicial reform. Then when will the police killings stop?
No weapon, Alton Sterling
