And Now, The Cop Who Killed Tamir Rice, Not at Fault …

Cleveland Police Chief, Calvin Williams, has stated Tamir Rice is NOT at fault for his own death…but neither is his murderer. Twelve year old Tamir Rice murdered in less than 2.5 seconds, and though he was doing no wrong, he was no choice to do anything thanks to “Officer” Timothy Loehman… But, Loehman is “not at fault” for Tamir’s death, either… Blue shield. Racism. Turn the other cheek. SICKENING!

Seriously? And there is peace in the street? Timothy Loehman forcefully jumped out of the speeding car and in less in 1….2……..seconds made the choice to shoot and kill a child. And for killing the child, he is not to blame… I’ve tried to calm down. But no…

I’ve sat here until I’ve literally bitten my lip bloody. I am shaking as I type this. Why? Why am I so upset this time? I’ve been doing this over a decade… (maybe that is a huge contributing factor as to why…)

I’ve been through this before, pretty much every single case from beatings to killings, from 6 years of age to 80 years of age; the cop(s) walk away with a paid vacation and the family walks away with a broken heart and a piece of their heart, their family missing.

I’ve been through this before; the video, the death, the verdict, the vacation with pay, the awards given, even, the broken look of Donovan Jackson, the heartbreak of mothers and sons… It always breaks my heart; but Tamir Rice stole a special part of my heart somehow.

I watched him, I watched his childlike innocence as he played with snow, ice and a BB gun. As he paced around innocently, as children do. As he sat down, seemingly bored. I wondered, what is he thinking? I wished I could just pause the video, warn him, RUN, GET AWAY!!!

But then, that would have just made him more of a ‘thug’, wouldn’t it Fox News and White America? Oh how ignorant you are.

The Police Chief said,
“If you knew what that officer knew at the time and if you were placed in that situation, people would say that Tamir was doing what a 12 year old child does in the park playing and he was. But the officer was doing his job in responding to a call for service and there were things that the officer didn’t know at the time.

Taking all that into consideration, yes, I would say it’s not the fault of the officer at this time and it’s not the fault of Tamir.”

So Tamir was just an innocent by-product of police lack of intelligence? And when an officer is misinformed or unaware of something, he is to kill on sight; within two seconds even? When that “suspect” is a timid young child, looking younger than 12 to me, not even pointing the BB gun at anyone much less the cop, you mean to tell me it is standard procedure to shoot and to shoot with the intent to kill?

The person who called out of concern regarding the BB gun made note that the gun was probably a toy. To be honest, I don’t care if the kid was sporting a gun that looked like an AK47, he should have been able to put the gun down.

“Officer” Timothy Loehamn, killed a 12 year old child and is getting away with it thanks to the blue shield. The badge to kill. There is no justification, nothing in this universe that could have made killing a child -especially without so much as a warning to the child!– acceptable.

I have no more to say at the moment, I’ll have plenty more to say later. I honestly feel sick. America, I don’t give a damn if you are Black, Hispanic, white, purple; get off your asses and stop letting these punks kill children!

What if that was YOUR child!? How can you watch the video, how can you watch all 10+ minutes of it and NOT connect to this poor child? How can you not want to scream at him to run, to get out of there because some racist cop with a trigger happy finger is on the loose and the minute that car stops he is going to jump out and within 2.5 seconds or less shoot you for dead!!

How can you not be angry; how can you not get up out your seat right now and start a riot! A mass riot and boycott is what we need; Assata Shakur says it best:

“NOBODY IN THE WORLD, NOBODY IN HISTORY, HAS EVER GOTTEN THEIR FREEDOM BY APPEALING TO THE MORAL SENSE OF THE PEOPLE WHO WERE OPPRESSING THEM.” – ASSATA SHAKUR.

Is There Any Hope Left? -Regarding Police Brutality …

Whether this society is hopeless or not doesn’t matter. If this society is damned, then that doesn’t mean we must allow it to defeat the good within us, we shouldn’t bow down to sickness even if the sickness will never end. But it can end. And I know how. I know why I have hope.

No matter how evil, racist, sexist and hate filled this society is, I will be more so. Love conquers all, and I can and do love enough to hate (Slipknot reference, sorry). I refuse to let hope slide away. If there is no more hope for humanity, trying to save it may be pointless, but one thing each and every one of us can do, hopeless or not, is at least fight back against those who are doing inhumane things. Comfort those who need it; speak out for those who cannot or will not.

childAnother 12 year old child was murdered on video, Tamir Rice (I say another because he is not the first and I fear he will not be the last). I watched him, somehow I connected with him in a way I rarely do with anyone. I felt his innocence, I saw his humanity, his good soul; and I saw it stolen for no reason in under 2 seconds upon police arrival.

Then I see that the cop who blatantly killed Eric Garner in that choke hold (video available for this also) has been cleared… while the one who video-taped it was indicted. Why are we not rioting in the streets more? Is this what it means for society to lose all hope? To stop fighting? Because we are letting murder, blatant murder, go on and the murderers go unpunished. Why is society not revolting? Why are more people not outraged? Giving up hope on society is one thing; silencing yourself is another.

America- Leading in the Way in World Police Brutality, Killing & Abuses

I’m exhausted, I’ve been working almost non-stop on a case for 2 days, so I’m going to take a few hours off here and rest; then I’ll be back to working on cases and sharing news. I’ll also be posting more on police murders and the following photo, which blows my mind but is not the first time something like this has happened. Whether you want to admit it or not, racism has only become covert in America; it has not gone away. racist cops

Quickly, I’m going to give a ‘preview’ of what facts, information, (including references & citations) regarding police murders globally, with America leading by a haunting percentage.

Sadly, the numbers for the United States also reflects Black teenagers are killed at a devastating 21 times more on average than white teenagers. You can say it’s not true because you don’t wanna believe it as much as you’d like but it is true, and shortly I’ll have detailed information and credible references posted.

Cops in England and Wales, for the whole of 2013, fired their guns fewer times than the proud child murderer Darren Wilson (he has chosen to resign since the murder; it’s good he is off the streets but he faces no punishment, not even a fine. Nothing.) Back to cops in England and Wales. Not only did they fire guns less at ‘suspects’, for the past two years they’ve gone without fatally shooting a “suspect”.

Here in the states, however, Continue reading America- Leading in the Way in World Police Brutality, Killing & Abuses

Cleveland Police Killed a Precious 12 Year Old Black Male, Video Released…

childGrowing up in America (and I am sure other places in the world, as well) having a fake gun or a BB gun was pretty standard. Unless you’re not white. Racism is still so alive in America and that needs to be confronted.

Quick video I made on Tamir Rice right after the murder 

it’s not on my police brutality channel, but you can find that *HERE*. And to get to the relevant point in the video please skip over all the other stuff I talk about, please skip to 48 seconds in.

But I digress..
In the wake of the Ferguson decision, with thousands of people in many cities protesting together, unified, I thought maybe this is when change is going to come… Maybe this really is what I’ve been fighting for for over a decade now. At least, it’s the start.

Then I read about Tamir Rice being killed; and my heart sunk. What’s more, this isn’t the only police brutality case during this time of course. But his tragic death is a hard hitting reminder that we need to keep demanding justice and equality. If cops have issue with people who aren’t white, they shouldn’t be a cop. If they are jumpy, they shouldn’t be a cop. Thinking violence and gun shots are the answer, especially to a child who is anything but threatening, is another big indication the police force should be the last place they belong.

Tonight I watched the recently released video footage. This is nothing new, I am sorry to say I have grown accustomed to watching these videos, however, something was different this time and it’s sort of startled me. But I think I’ve figured out what it is… Why I feel so connected with him.
