I have no words to express the disgust that continues to grind my heart and soul, my stomach, my nerves, every time I see what the cops have done this time.
And to anyone who has the cruel and blind audacity to say the bystander just “happened to be a Black male” and this has nothing to do with “racial issues”…. If you seriously believe that, if you actually believe it was an accidental murder which they care so little about having committed (see the heartbreaking photo), you are far too blind and insensitive to even consider discussing such a tragic, haunting and clearly racist problem of police brutality and racism.
With all my heart I agree with the heartbreaking yet sadly truthful words the original blogger wrote…..
There is a man laying on the ground, DYING, in pain and alone. Alone as he dies, listening to the sounds of the cruel people around him discuss….whatever they ‘discussed’.
When I first saw a group of cops hog tie an overweight Black male with Narcolepsy outside of White Castle (he had a bout of Narcolepsy, when he woke he began acting ‘erratically’; if he actually did that is a very common response to people with the disorder) .
Long story short, the Black 40 year old male was hog tied as over a dozen cops arrived in the parking lot where I was watching and someone was recording their abuse.
He began to suffocate. He began to cry. He called out for his mother.
And when his innocent, beautiful soul left his body, a part of me died, too. I was 14. For a week I mourned the man I never met. I had seen people fatally shot before, it was tragic…but never before or after has my soul felt as though a part went with the person who died.
It was impossible to try and comfort the man; the cops had him surrounded. I cried with him, as did my friends. I hope somehow he felt our presence; our love, even if only a bit… I can only pray to the gods that he knew he wasn’t alone; that I tried to get past them….To no avail.
Sorry, I share this story because I too am seeing these images. I am tired of seeing so many Black men being killed or beaten regardless of age and everyone saying how horrible it is, then moving on to the next topic. Since 14 I have spent virtually every day fighting against absent hearted police and FOR their victims in numerous ways.
But, it’s obvious; more than obvious, that we need more than a couple of people who have a heart, soul, and deep, deep desire and passion to fix this; and punish the racists with a badge, the killers, the abusers, the liars and the law enforcement’s blue shield, which is covered in crimson red blood, needs to be shattered. Justice WILL prevail, but we can NOT give up.
May all those who have been stolen from this life, far before their time, due to this evil plague find joy and peace… And may every person fighting the murders, beatings and abuses this gang conducts, stay strong… Change IS possible…. It will come so long as we don’t give in.
A HUMAN; LYING ON THE STREET; PEOPLE DISCUSSING; NOBODY PRAYS FOR, NOBODY COMFORTS THAT DYING MAN ….
IT IS A SHOCK FOR ME TO SEE THIS PICTURE!
NYPD undercover cop fires at suspect armed with fake gun, fatally shoots bystander
A weapons sting operation went terribly wrong when an undercover NYPD officer, who was threatened with a replica gun by a robber, shot and killed a 61-year-old passerby instead of disabling the ‘gunman.’
The bystander, identified as Felix Kumi, died of two torso wounds on Saturday, police said. The gunman had attempted to rob the undercover officer just as he was about to buy a gun from a suspected illegal arms dealer in a vehicle as part of the Friday operation. The robber was reportedly hit three times as he was running away.
The number of hits, however, was a far cry from the…
