“Welcome To OUR World!”

 

I cannot wait to see how this is going to play out and so far, hardly a word from the police. But of course, they are wondering just how they are going to play out the usual, “I feared for my life!” scenario. I mean, the latest ‘victim’ of an unlawful police killing of an unarmed citizen just happens to be ‘white’ and even though she was from the ‘land-down-under’, she don’t look at all Aborigine to me.

Australians, bride-to-be’s dad rocked by Minneapolis police shooting

Australians expressed dismay and a father pleaded for “the light of justice” Tuesday as investigators in Minneapolis tried to determine why a city police officer fatally shot an Australian woman who had called 911 to report a possible sexual assault.

Justine Damond, 40, was a meditation instructor who moved to the U.S. in 2015 to be with fiance Don Damond. She was shot just before midnight Saturday in an alley outside her home, unarmed and in her pajamas.

“We thought yesterday was our worst nightmare, but we awoke to the ugly truth and it hurt even more,” her father, John Ruszczyk said Tuesday local time in Sydney.

And add insult to injury and it looks like the ‘victim’ is the one who called the police in the first place and was actually speaking with them when she was shot dead and of course, there is no body cam footage, nor is there dash cam footage even though citizens fought hard for body cams and have been and are paying for them to be used, but for some strange reason, many are found to be turned off at the most inauspicious of times.

But wait! The plot thickens!

Minneapolis cop who shot Australian woman during call was named in recent lawsuit, faced two open complaints

The Minneapolis cop who fatally shot an Australian woman during a police call was celebrated as one of the department’s few Somali-American officers, but had two open complaints and named in a recent lawsuit.

Mohamed Noor fired at Justine Damond on Saturday night while she was speaking to the officer’s partner.

Say it ain’t so! ‘Miss Pure White As Snow Australia’ was gunned down in ‘cold’ blood by a refugee from Somalia; a decorated Somali-American police officer, who has by the way, been praised most enthusiastically by Minneapolis Mayor, Betsy Hodges.

“I want to take a moment to recognize Officer Mohamed Noor, the newest Somali officer in the Minneapolis Police Department,” Mayor Betsy Hodges wrote in a Facebook post last year. “Officer Noor has been assigned to the 5th Precinct, where his arrival has been highly celebrated, particularly by the Somali community in and around Karmel Mall.”

And the article goes on to state that Noor’s partner in the patrol car was absolutely STUNNED when Noor opened fire on ‘Miss Pure White As Snow Australia’; just completely, devastatingly STUNNED, he was, to be sure!

What police officer was stunned when Eric Garner was choked to death by another officer on video on a New York Street for selling loose, untaxed cigarettes? What police officer was stunned by his partner shooting and killing twelve-year old Tamir Rice only seconds after pulling up on that child while he was playing with a toy gun in a park? What officer was stunned when a fellow police officer shot and killed John Crawford in a Wal-Mart store for holding a toy gun? What police officer was reportedly stunned when witnessing the murder of 23-year old unarmed Amadou Diallo, an immigrant from New Guinea who was shot 41 times by four New York cops? But now, it is time for a fellow officer to be absolutely, appallingly STUNNED over the shooting and killing of an unarmed ‘white’ woman from Australia by his partner, a fellow cop. Cops are shooting citizens every single day and are killing them for no good reason and not one time have I heard that even one cop was STUNNED by the actions of another. All we hear is how the cops are always in the right because they “FEARED FOR THEIR LIVES!” To hell with our lives, they fear for theirs. So why the fuck did they sign up to be police officers in the first damn place if they were just going to be namby-pamby piss their pants mommas boys and girls every single damn time they shot somebody to death who happened either to be unarmed or to be legally armed as was the case with Philando Castile? If you lousy ass shit your pants wimps are so goddamn fearful for your lives, then don’t sign the fuck up to be cops! That’ll stop that shit right there! You can’t have it both ways; grab a gun, shoot some unarmed or lawfully armed, law abiding citizen and then claim “you feared for your life” to get yourself off the hook every single time you kill someone who is unarmed and who posed no goddamn threat to you whatsoever! Thus far, you have gotten clean away with this scenario because it’s been mostly Black people that you’ve dished this shit out to, but let’s see you slither your way out of this one. The ‘whites’ ain’t gonna take kindly to you filling their asses with lead. They don’t give a damn about what you do to Black folks, but goddamn it, enough is enough when you start that shit up with ‘Miss Goldilocks’ and her ilk! Let’s see how far that “I feared for my life!” bullshit gets you THIS time! I can’t wait for it!

But the fat is in the fire now because it ain’t some no-account Black thug with a criminal record that’s got himself shot dead by cops. The shit is going to hit the fan now because it ain’t just some no-account twelve-year old Black boy that’s got himself murdered by wimp-assed cops. The world has got to stop turning because now, ‘Miss Pure White As Snow Australia’, who was soon to be married and who had only three years ago arrived on these shores and who was just a saint and all that comes with it, has been shot dead by those murderers in blue and brown. What’s the story gonna be, eh? What lies will come out? And how much will the other loathsome cops stick up for this Somali-born cop that shot ‘Miss Goldilocks’? We’ll soon see how thick that ‘blue wall’ is, won’t we? We’ll soon see at what lengths the Minneapolis police department will go to protect ‘one of their own’. I can’t wait for the unfolding of this event.

Hey! White folks! You taking note of this? How do you feel now? She looks like you! And they shot her in stone ‘cold blood’. Are you going to wait to see if she had a ‘rap sheet’? Are you going to say, “Oh well, another thug shot dead,” if it turns out that she was ticketed for jay-walking and/or littering continuously? This shit is just too horrific for words, now ain’t it? What the hell? They can’t shoot you, now can they? Uh, yes, cop  Mohamed Noor did! So, all I can say to that is “WELCOME TO OUR WORLD!” Ain’t it great to be in America where we are protected from the common criminals by those great folks in blue and brown uniforms? Salute our heroes in blue and brown today, why doncha! Thank them for filling your ass with lead! Thank them for getting out of any wrong doing on their part by simply saying, “I feared for MY life!” Never mind Tamir Rice’s life! Never mind Eric Garner’s life! Never mind Freddie Gray’s life! Never mind Aiyana Mo’Nay Stanley-Jones ‘ life! Never mind John Crawford’s life! What are you going to do now that it’s YOUR life they’re snuffing out?

Yessiree! “WELCOME TO OUR WORLD!”

Freddie Gray, We Failed You!

freddie gray3

Freddie Gray, we failed you.
It would seem, we always will.
We failed Amadou Diallo,
and all the rest on their list to kill.

Poor Michael Brown lay in the sun,
but his body cooled so fast.
And Trayvon still roams the night,
for being Black, he was harassed.

Eric, we failed you too.
What is there left to say?
They choked the life right out of you.
And no one was made to pay.

Oh we get upset and burn some things,
and then we quickly get over the pain.
They call us all bad thugs
but why you are dead, they can’t explain.

A mother slapped her child,
for throwing rocks and glass and such,
and the media played that up.
At that shit, they always clutch.

They always blame the victim,
for acting out of rage
“Our anger should be doused!”
So says the wise old sage.

Something’s wrong with that old sage,
He does not speak the truth.
A man is dead who did no wrong.
He was buried while in his youth.

Twelve, eighteen and twenty-two,
and on and on it goes.
These are the average ages
of Black bodies laid out in rows.

The funerals never stop.
And the buckets of tears are shed.
The lines are out the door,
but no one says what needs to be said.

Peace will never be ours to know
in this shithole built by slaves.
When have they ever cared for us,
these primates out of caves?

Never think the day will come
when they’ll stop the killing spree.
The time is now for you to act!
You’re a slave, you are not free!

If anyone thinks that the racist cops will be held accountable for Freddie Gray’s death, are you serious? With video proof that Eric Garner was murdered in cold blood, where is the indictment? With video proof of the murder of Tamir Rice, where is the indictment? With video proof of the murder of John Crawford, where is the indictment? And certainly what happened to Walter Scott in North Charleston, South Carolina deserves a mention. What slap on the wrist will that cop get even with being charged with murder? And poor Freddie Gray was just minding his business in what the whites labeled a ‘high crime area’ so he must have been committing a crime, but so far, we’ve yet to know what crime he committed. Oh, that’s right! He fled! Even if I was in a wheelchair, I would have fled as fast as my battery powered seat could get me the hell out of there especially seeing as how Black men don’t seem to fare well when coming into contact with AmeriKKKa’s storm troopers.

And we want to think that the deceased are resting in peace? Get real!

Oh and for the woman that slapped her child, he should have hauled off and slapped some sense into your ass!

Mike Brown Was At Fault!

The verdict is in, is any one of us surprised?
I could say that I was, but then I would have lied.

It was known all along what the outcome would be.
Darren Wilson was innocent, why else has he been free?

Mike Brown was at fault, he should never have been born.
Didn’t his mama know from birth that her child would be scorned?

Those who came before us paved the way to where we are.
But when you look around you, have we really come so far?

Our pastors pray to God to stop those bullets made of lead.
And yet Emmett, Eric, Trayvon, Mike and Amadou are still dead.

Yes, let us pray to God to stop the racists with a gun.
And while we are at it, ask God to tell us what we’ve done.

Were we brought here against our will, or did we climb into a boat,
and row from Africa’s shores when we read the white man’s note?

Did we come to build this land and expect not one thin dime?
We were whipped and chained and raped and now we’re doing time.

They’ve got a plan for us but let’s not go out peacefully.
If they want a goddamn war then arm yourselves for anarchy.

We were pissed on yet again, so fuck shit up tonight.
Or go back home, get on your knees and ask God to do what’s right.

We’ve been doing that shit for how long now, it’s getting kind ‘a old.
I’m tired of waiting on a miracle while Black bodies are getting cold.

God ain’t lying on these streets, our sons and daughters are.
We got no time to wait on God or just wish upon a star.

You say Mike Brown is with his God; his soul is now at peace.
If what you say is true, then to God, send the damn police!

No indictment for police officer in death of Michael Brown.

A grand jury has decided not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown, the unarmed, black 18-year-old whose fatal shooting sparked weeks of sometimes-violent protests.

St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch announced the decision Monday evening. A grand jury of nine whites and three blacks had been meeting weekly since Aug. 20 to consider evidence.

At least nine votes would have been required to indict Wilson.

Pastors were planning a rally and prayer service later Monday evening at the West Side Missionary Baptist Church in St. Louis.

“There’s a lot of hurt, a lot of brokenness. There’s anger and frustration on every side,” said the Rev. Ronald Bobo Sr., the church’s pastor. “We need the hand of God to lead us and guide us.”
