125. I disagree to a certain degree

 

In these times, black lives matter


I don't care if its a unarmed black man (Eric Garner) just standing on a street and getting strangled to death or a unarmed homeless white man (Kelly Thomas) being beaten and strangled to death or a Hispanic man (Frank Mendoza) being gunned down for simply trying to escape from a parolee that broke into his house, all lives matter and will continue to matter.

I cannot stand for this idea that a race of people's lives matter over another when gangs of psychos are going around killing everyone, these cops are killing people left and right and it needs to end. If you can't say that All Lives Matter then you've already lost because you've created racial division instead of addressing the problem with mentally ill, gang types within police departments murdering people.

These psycho cops love that some are making it about race instead of about them because they know when a black person gets killed, many whites sit and look the other way and when a white person gets killed many blacks sit and look the other way.

By the way #AllLivesMatter and #BlackLivesMatter while noble in many respects isnt a real goal, as along as police officers with psychological issues are employed within these departments, allowed to kill people with impunity and there isnt a screening process implemented to remove these police officers, no amount of protests, no amount of hash tags, no amount of "additional training", no amount of body cameras will change anything.

Lets not forget about the baby who was blown up in his crib because they didn't want someone they suspected of selling drugs, flushing it.

And lets not forget about the multiple women Fullerton Officer Albert Rincon sexually assaulted while on duty and the Orange County DA declined to press charges but the city settled with 2.

And lets not forget about the bicyclist who was ran over because Deputy Andrew Francis Wood in Los Angeles decided to work on his computer while driving.

They're not only shooting people, they're raping and seriously injuring them too.

Finally, let me remind you that while Mike Brown's murder wasn't captured on tape, Jason Conoscenti was. He was shot in the back multiple times and killed as he ran away from cops, you can see him writhing on the ground as he takes his final breaths.

His crime? Allegedly stealing from a Target store.



This is why I stand firm and say All Lives Matter.
