Let me ask YOU why I should. Read all of this before sending your hate so you at least are semi educated in why you write.
No words… I am at a loss I’ve been writing horror news for around 14 years (racism and police brutality)… This MUST FU*KING END!!!! Until it does, don’t ask me about how I feel regarding police deaths.
“Police union says officer misfired and accidentally struck Charles Kinsey.”
If you believe that, you are living way too deep in white privilege; you don’t even acknowledge the sick “privilege” and you take it for granted…You remain ignorant, racist (admit it or not) and clueless to what the real world is because it doesn’t impact your world.
Why bother learning the truth and history? Why would it matter that this is NOT a single, one time incident? I mean police have a “tough job” and for the most part they “serve and protect”!
– Yes. If you are white.
A Black behavioral therapist working with his patient is shot, “accidentally”. Guess they couldn’t find anything to call a “gun” like a wallet or some skittles.
And to whites who are feeling left out: Yes, I know, white people get shot, too. But whites aren’t targeted nor does their murder usually go unpunished. I digress, I’m not going into that now. If you aren’t aware of this fact by now your on the wrong page.
So yes. Whites may get shot as well, but not at the horrendous rate or in the horrific numbers of the people within the Black community. When was the last time a white therapist was shot? What happened to the cops when a white child was shot & what happens to the cops when a Black child is shot? ….
What do you think will happen to Mr. Kinsey’s attempted murderer?
And if you really don’t think it’s murder and truly think the cop couldn’t handle his gun (wait WHY was his gun out? Why was it pointed? …)
Even if you really believe it was an accident, I ask you this;
Can you not see why that sort of person is not fit to use a gun let alone work in this field?
You cannot say, “opps made a mistake, took a life; almost took a life; the ol’ gun slipped out of my grasp and got away again!” NO!
People are DYING! Because we have racist cops, and/or cops who racially profile and abuse power because it is expected. That is what it takes to be accepted. You will walk no matter what- wait no; if it’s a white person your walking in damn thin ice so try to only kill or abuse the poor ones no one cares about! Otherwise… You’re gonna have to take some time, and take one for the team.
To be a good cop you’d have to 1) not be engaged in above behaviors, 2) and you’d have to be speaking out against those who are. (And mind you this is a brief summary I write; this does not even touch the tip of the issue!)
Silence is just as bad. So no, there are no good cops I see right now.
And again; as I said in a recent comment regarding kids raising money for the families of the Dallas cops who died recently:
