Black Lives Matter Protest Disrupts Minneapolis…And…

Just to remind you guys, being delayed at an airport or on the highway is not something I consider to be a “huge risk” as some random, insane guy said after tweeting me some more intelligent lines prior that. If anyone can find any statistics that show sitting in a car on the highway, or, sitting on a plane or being held up in an airport for an hour or so is a danger to the lives of people?  Show me some statistics that prove this; show me anything that compares to the amount of Black  men and women who are killed and/or beaten daily for no reason whatsoever!

As I noted to him, the Black community is being targeted, men (and women) of all ages are DYING, being brutally killed by police who walk away without any form of punishment; in fact too many get a promotion or some other form of recognition.

Having to live your life, every day, worrying about the police; worrying about how you look, what you are doing, where your hands are, where your eyes are, is your seat belt on, and on and on and on I could go- but that’s not what this guy or too many other selfish souls want to think about. How dare their lives be put on hold for an hour or so regarding something they not only don’t understand but some of them have no desire to learn about.

I work with children, I have young Black children terrified of the cops; I have one child who is now house bound after Tamir Rice. He is 10. How would you comfort your precious child when you know the reality he is afraid of is real?

But the people who can’t see the struggle and the reasons behind this protest or any of the protests for that matter don’t have to deal with that. Either that, or they want to believe it, even though it’s right in front of their faces.

Police Severely Beat and Break Ribs of 80 Year Old Army Veteran…Because…

Below is a man by the name of Bill Swan. He is 80 years old, an army veteran, a cancer survivor and a victim of police brutality. After surviving and beating cancer, he was then beaten severely by the police. He suffered not only an extremely brutalized face, but several broken ribs as well.

Why? Because he “refused to obey orders” given by cops…but there was a reason for that…he’s deaf ; so he obviously heard nothing. Of course not one officer will be punished, they are beating and/or killing every day. They are using excessive and fatal force because they can- and they know it.

How they live with themselves, I will never know. But, nevertheless, using excessive force because an 80 year old doesn’t do as ‘ordered’ is uncalled for, no matter the situation. He posed absolutely no threat to anyone; not the cops, not society. It is the cops who pose the threat; not him, not Michael Brown. It is the cops who are the true threats, as far as I am concerned. 

And as I always say, this is not a solo case, this is common place. But everyone keeps going on about their daily business, never stopping to think of another or help another until it is you.

There needs to be justice for each and every soul who has had to endure brutality; for each family who has lost a child or a loved one. For each soul who has been brutalized for absolutely no reason. It will continue, until enough people stand up and say no more. I support the rioting happening, because we’ve been asking kindly for so, so long.
