Another police-involved shooting death of black teen sparks tensions in St. Louis
Last night another young Black teenager, Antonio Martin, 18 was gunned down by a cop in Berkley, MO. It has been alleged that he pointed a gun at a cop. And although, the cop that shot and killed Antonio Martin had a body camera, it wasn’t on him. Why not? Nor was his police cruiser’s dashboard camera turned on. Why not? Was that not Barack Obama’s and Eric Holder’s solution to the killing of young Black men by white cops? It is SO working isn’t it? Well, isn’t it? Quite obviously, they can put the body camera on the cops, but they just can’t seem to get the cops to use them and if the cops have nothing to hide, why not turn the body camera and dashboard camera on? Eh? If I had not a goddamn thing to hide, I’d get to recording every motherfucking move I made. But you see, cops got everything to hide because they’re dirty. They’re on the take, BIG TIME! And they’re on some “Kill as many Black men as you can,” time. How else could they get away with all the shit that they do if it’s coming from their own goddamn body cams?
Is anybody so delusional that they actually think that all the money and drugs that cops confiscate from raids and stings actually end up in the evidence room? I know goodness goddamn well, that there ain’t a cop out there that’s pissing and moaning about their paltry salary because they get their hands on all that non-taxable money they steal from raids and arrests and stings. Oh, they got it SO good. Who wouldn’t want to be a cop? And it ain’t even like they got one of the most dangerous jobs in America. Being a cop didn’t even make the list. It is more dangerous for you to work in the construction field. Ask a cop to trade jobs with a window washer, he’d shoot you on the spot for conjuring up the image of losing out on all that extra money he gets from crime scenes. I remember reading an article about a cop stealing thousands of dollars from an accident victim. Seriously??! Yep, protect and serve is what they do, protect their private stash that they serve to themselves all the while screaming about how they’re the ‘good’ guys. Indeed, signs of that shit are all over the place. There are signs in Ferguson, MO, New York, NY, Cleveland, OH, Berkeley, MO, Beavercreek, OH, and the list goes on and on and on.
But wait! It gets better or worse depending on who you are. We all remember Michael Brown, right? Well, at a retirement party for a cop, they hired a singer and they all got to singing,
“Michael Brown learned a lesson about a messin’ with a badass policeman,” “Michael looked like some old Swiss cheese” … his brain “splattered on the floor.”
They’re ALL heart, aren’t they? But when somebody gets fed up and busts a cap all up in them, why it’s time to break out the violins and stop the protests of cops killing Black men for no apparent reason, other than the fact that it’s always been ‘open season’ on Black people.
Oh, but how I digress. Now, about this latest police killing of another Black man.
The Berkeley officer was responding to a call about a larceny when he encountered the two men in the parking lot. As the officer spoke with one of the men, the other walked several steps away and produced a weapon that he pointed at the officer, Belmar said.
At that point, the officer drew his weapon and stepped backward, firing three shots – one of which struck the suspect.
Now, what this man had to say was right on point.
“Mr. Martin either had a gun or didn’t, but by morning he will have morphed into a gun wielding ‘super negro’, firing from bushes with at least two different handguns with his DNA-less hands, displaying his “demon” strength, and “bulking up” before running towards armed police,” Sekou said. “What’s more, we’ll soon know if he ever smoked marijuana, got good grades at school and if he ever took a selfie with a bottle of liquor.”
There it is! Proof positive that there will be a report out about the criminal activities of the Black teenager that got himself murdered and voila, it’s right on time!
“Martin had a criminal record that included three assault charges and others for armed robbery, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon.”
“See, this Martin guy wasn’t no Sunday school teacher, let alone a preacher man. He was just a criminal! Case closed! Nothing to see here folks! No reason to protest, move it along! We’ve got some real hero cops to mourn! Clear the streets! And New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, don’t you dare start in on how you instruct your bi-racial son on how to behave when coming into contact with New York’s finest! We’re all the finest! That’s what you get for messing around with what should be ‘The Help’! Keep ‘em in their place and don’t give ’em no ideas!”
And tomorrow, we ‘celebrate’ Christmas and again, someone, ANYONE, tell me just what the hell is there to celebrate with nothing but killing, killing, killing and torturing going on? Huh? What’s that??!!! Yeah! That’s what I thought! Ain’t a goddamn thing to celebrate! If I had a goddamn Christmas tree up, it’d be in a million fucking pieces by now!
Now, read this shit!
“Connecticut trooper pleads guilty to stealing dying motorcycle crash victim’s jewelry, money
State trooper AJ Huntsman was accused of lifting more than $8,000 in cash and jewelry from a dying man at a motorcycle crash site in 2012. He later lied to supervisors and the dead man’s family about it, authorities said.
A crooked Connecticut cop caught by his dash cam stealing more than $8,000 in cash and jewelry off a mangled motorcycle crash victim.”
Now, how vile is that! Protect and Serve? Right?!!! The man was DYING and the state trooper was stealing from a DYING ACCIDENT VICTIM!!! This is why the cops that are outfitted with bodycams don’t turn them on. This one just forgot that his dashcam was on or who would have known about his crime? But they’re the GOOD guys, remember?! Yeah, fucking ‘good’ guys, my motherfucking ass!
Maybe In Another Life
The banshee screams in the dark of night.
So many souls fly towards the light.
It is a place where no human can go.
They’ll not have to reap what they did not sow.
The troubles of this world will be left behind.
Maybe in another life they will find,
the meaning to why they were ever here,
and why from their loved ones, they must disappear.
Only the lost and the lonely are welcome there,
where they will never carry more than they can bear.
