Outrage Over: Innocent People Being Killed by Cops orTwo Cops Shot in Brooklyn…

I find it humbling that some protesters in NYC left flowers for the two cops that were killed by a gunmen with a history of violence and mental illness. Upset over the injustice of the murders of men such as Eric Garner and Micheal Brown, he set out to take police life; and he did. Do I agree? No, of course not. But he was seriously mentally ill, and I am positive watching Black male after Black male be murdered by police was not helping him any. So I can understand to a degree. However, now things are going to escalate. Black lives will be in even more danger as police across America have now been put on alert due to the killings.

I don’t support killing another unless it is self defense. However, I can’t say I have the same good heart as so many protesters have by giving the flowers and showing their condolences. I don’t want anyone to die and anytime anyone loses a member of the family it is hard… However, I somehow cannot feel sympathy like I do for victims of police violence. Newspapers never mentioned anything positive about Tamir Rice; and I’d be willing to bet Fox News isn’t talking about Darren Wilson or the lying witnesses in Michael Brown’s case.

I have not read anywhere (so I assume TV is the same … as always ) that mentions the grief of the families that just lost a child to killer cop(s). However, when you read the papers all one will see is talk of how horribly painful it is for the cop’s wife, and of course, the children…

That is what upset me the most. The children. Kids have been killed by cops before, but because Tamir Rice made the news I will use him as an example and ask, why is no one outraged that a mother has lost her baby? Why are people not outraged when the cops kill or severely beat an innocent, unarmed person? How can so many people in society see even  just one or two of these cases and then turn away, saying that the police “must have had a reason”, as if they are saints from heaven above?!

In New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio has made it clear that he wants all police brutality protestors to stop mourning and to stop their freedom to express their pain, disgust and outrage over the killing of innocents by police until the dead cops funerals are finished. This is a slap to the face and I hope not one soul listens. #NYPDLIVESMATTER but no more than #BLACKLIVESMATTER or #HUMANLIVESMATTER –

During his public speech to give condolences to the families of the slain cops he said the following, which only fuels the fire and passion in me to fight for what is just and right. He said: Continue reading Outrage Over: Innocent People Being Killed by Cops orTwo Cops Shot in Brooklyn…
