The George Floyd Situation


Police Murders

The USA is a police state and the police have been murdering citizens for centuries.

Recently a young black female Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) was murdered in her own bed because the War on Drugs is still being used as an excuse to terrorize People Of Color (POC).

A couple of days ago in Minneapolis, Minnesota a white police officer murdered a black suspect by standing or kneeling on his neck for many minutes.

Police get away with murdering POC and poor white people all the time. What happened to body cams and accountability?

And I always thought this would be
the land of milk and honey
Oh but I came to find out that it's
all hate and money
And there's a canopy of greed holding me down.

We also had the Central Park Karen situation the other day. The country definitely feels on edge right now

Wow she's pathetic.

Some people heard my words and thought it meant they knew me
Truth is, I don't exist, I'm just a soundtrack to your movie
Some background figure in a story that's already scripted
And what I feel's just felt for you to hear me ****ing spit it
I jump in many different heads through these words and poems
Always hoping maybe the next leap'll be my leap home

Imagine the time when there were no body cams... "Suspect totally attacked/reached for the gun, I had no choice but to take the shot, case closed!"

These are the ones that are caught on camera, anyways. One has to wonder how many times this has happened when nobody was filming or watching?

Knowing how corrupt some police departments are, I'm worried about the people who recorded that incident and uploaded it. They might have targets on their backs now. I would GTFO of that city in a hurry if I were them.

Police simply turn off the body cams, or they can delete footage of conversations they've had.



Honestly I just wouldn't piss off anyone with a gun period. The only cops that won't be corrupt are robocops.

Include the business owners and employees who have had their livelihoods damaged or destroyed and they weren't even involved!

I can't believe some people refer to Trump as the greatest president the US has ever had (I saw someone do that the other day.) Were your other presidents all that bad? Very low standards.

Not even really going to say anything else just what a disaster.

This is The Onion btw:

Quote:
MINNEAPOLIS—Calling for a more measured way to express opposition to police brutality, critics slammed demonstrators Thursday for recklessly looting businesses without forming a private equity firm first. “Look, we all have the right to protest, but that doesn’t mean you can just rush in and destroy any business without gathering a group of clandestine investors to purchase it at a severely reduced price and slowly bleed it to death,” said Facebook commenter Amy Mulrain, echoing the sentiments of detractors nationwide who blasted the demonstrators for not hiring a consultant group to take stock of a struggling company’s assets before plundering. “I understand that people are angry, but they shouldn’t just endanger businesses without even a thought to enriching themselves through leveraged buyouts and across-the-board terminations. It’s disgusting to put workers at risk by looting. You do it by chipping away at their health benefits and eventually laying them off. There’s a right way and wrong way to do this.” At press time, critics recommended that protestors hold law enforcement accountable by simply purchasing the Minneapolis police department from taxpayers.

Further down they tweeted 'everything is burning' which weirdly reminded me of this:


I dream gunfire but I’m not sleeping
I fear outside
Everything is burning

I dream gunfire but I'm not sleeping
The bloodshed the lies
Everything is burning

One, two, three I force myself to be still
Haunted by hate inseminated by greed
Corruption and neoconservative pilgrims
Your alchemy, alchemy can’t help me when
Everything is burning

This situation is bad enough, now Donald Trump throws a massive amount of gas on the fire (horrible pun, but wtf else can you call it). He's going to get people killed with that tweet. Why could he not be as pissed about charges not being laid against those cops today? The video is clear as f***ing day.
