Irony

Irony: An All Lives Matter movement goes silent when a 12 year old boy is shot in the park for playing with a toy gun in an open carry state… and the officer who’s former police chief recommended that he be fired walks free…

Irony: Pro-lifers who protest, attack, and even bomb planned parenthood clinics because they believe in the sacredness of life that have somehow never protested nor spoke out about the careless use of force and murder of innocent children by police…

Murder

My Thoughts on the Latest Shooting:

…an unarmed man was murdered by a police officer while trying to run away… this is not shocking; in the community I grew up in it’s common knowledge that not all black people are thugs, not all cops are honorable, and there are times, too often, where the cops are the thugs murdering innocent civilians, planting evidence, illegally detaining and beating us up under the guise of broken taillights, tinted windows, speeding violations, and fitting the description of… I myself have had five cops pull their guns on me over a “broken taillight” among other incidents… Like I said, where I grew up, it’s common knowledge that not all black people are thugs, not all cops are honorable, and the murder of an unarmed man is not new to us…

…it is shocking, even with the video evidence, that this officer has been arrested and charged with murder… but I doubt that many of us believe that he will be convicted or serve any serious time if he is… we struggle with being patient and believing in a justice system that has continuously failed us, so you have to excuse us if we don’t believe this latest incident will result in any punishment for the perpetrator of the crime against human life…

…the fact these officers continue to commit these kinds of acts, knowing that they are potentially being recorded shows that these are not isolated random incidents, but a part of their culture and that they don’t believe they will be punished for their actions. Otherwise, they would stop foolishly committing these acts on camera.

…I am thankful for the recent barrage of video footage, not because I believe there will be a conviction, but because people who aren’t from my world (there is more than one America in America), are having their beliefs challenged and being presented with evidence that disputes the long held American belief that the police are always acting honorably when they do harm to a civilian…

…the truth is, we have been telling you for years about these heinous acts committed by officials of the government, but you have never believed us… and even with the videos, you are still struggling to reconcile the idea of a crooked cop against your belief that cops by definition are good people…. Cops are just people, some honorable and good, others abusing their power and corrupting the system…

…now we wait…. ~ Sean King

White supremacy is what they be pressing

Cowards patrol city streets
With badges and guns
“Run, Nigger Run!!”
White supremacy is what they be pressing
America is still regressing
Obsessing with oppression
Confessions of hypocrisy
Racism and poverty
Hate and illiteracy
Prison and slavery
Lies of democracy
Uncle Sam and stolen land
Go together like a glove and a hand
You can’t acquit
When it fits like a white noose
Around a black neck
Like black cargo piled into a slave ship
Like black slaves being beat by night sticks
You can’t acquit when the crimes are sick
Like cocaine that will have you flying
Those cops sho’ be lying
We thought she was reaching for her gun
We thought he was going to shoot us with his back
We didn’t know she was having a seizure
We thought his wallet was a gat
Is that a fact?

Is that a fact or another lie?
When you make a mistake do you always shoot 41 times?
Do you apologize for your crimes?
Do you admit you were out of line?
There is a thin line between life and death
You may still be breathing
But your soul has cashed its final check

Check

Check

Check your mind and your mental
Check your mind and your mental
Are all of these assassinations coincidental?
A coincidental accident
An accidental coincidence
An unintentional incident
An incidental accident
A coincidental incident
A media misprint
A Freudian slip
A 50 finger trigger happy trick
31 shots fired
Even had time to reload the clip

We just wanted to slow the subject down
That’s why we kept pumping his body with lead even as his head was bouncing off the concrete ground

That’s why we shot him in the back
Even after he was cuffed and pinned with his face in the ground

How’s that story sound?

Young brothers and sisters are dying

Thanks to politics and hypocrisy
Thanks to justice and democracy
Thanks to stereotyping and flawed policy
Thanks to the schools for their accurate teaching of history
Thanks to prop 21 for helping me to see
Kids belong in jails and penitentiaries
You sure have made me feel safe
In the land of the free
Land of milk and honey
Land of opportunity
Everyone has the right to vote
All inclusive democracy
Doing what’s best for the people
Trickle down Reaganomic policy
We’re all treated equal
In this Utopian Merit Based society
All I got is from hard work
No advantage has been given to me
Get on with our lives
No side effects from slavery
Every one guaranteed due process
No signs of hypocrisy
The right to bear arms
We can handle the responsibility
We all get along in America
Because we’re just one big happy family

Ain’t that right?
Right?
Right?
You have the right
You have the right
You have the right to remain silent
Anything you say can and will be used against you
If you live long enough to make it to a court of law
