I’m absolutely enraged and outraged over the verdict of Jerame Reid’s murderers. He didn’t stop his car 100% at a stop sign; the cops pulled him over, he stopped fully right away. It took 2 seconds directly after officer ___ reached into the car for a handgun and exchanged words of premeditated murder with his partner, shouting “I’m going to kill you,” at the innocent, unarmed Black male victim.
As seen in the murder video from the dashboard camera, Jerame states what he is doing before and as he gets out of the car, with his hands in the air. He wasn’t out to hurt anyone. The cops, however, seem to have had no problem deciding how to handle the innocent, unarmed Black male.
Audio captured before the murder reveals a lot about the mind set of both cops; and it also indicates to me the murder was premeditated. It wasn’t based on an sudden fear or ‘imminent threat’ that is clear. While one cop threatens murder, the other suggests it and claims the man didn’t listen, and had a gun so of course, they had better kill.
Two Seconds. 8 shots.
How many more people must die or be harmed before we UNITE AND END POLICE BRUTALITY?!
I will write a more detailed account (and links) tomorrow after I’ve calmed down a bit… I also am going to have the article/essay I spoke of in my previous video up tomorrow instead of tonight. This case has really angered me so I’m going to gather my composure before continuing work.
These two cops shouldn’t be free; nor should they be on administrative leave; aka, paid vacation.
And Jerame Reid, along with the hundreds of others, should still be alive. How dare some of you people tell me I am too hard on cops!? This country is too easy on them and frankly I am too. They are killing innocent humans and doing it without any form of punishment- not even losing their jobs.
How I feel, what I say isn’t enough. These killers, ALL of them, should be in prison for LIFE- at the very least.
