#Black Lives Matter

Office Slager shooting Walter Scott

Back in 2005, when I still believed in justice, fairness, and the American Way, I made a speech in front of the Village of Maywood’s City Council during one of their Tuesday night meetings. In the meeting, I remarked that if they didn’t put a stop to the stalkers public humiliation of me that it would come back on them by way of their children. They looked at me as though I were some insane idiot who had wandered in off the street.

But what I meant by that was, if you let one group of people, The Stalkers, get away with doing and saying whatever they want in your streets, others, including your children, will learn to do the same. And they did.

The same holds true with the Zimmerman case. The not Guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman case gave a clear signal to white policemen that they could get away with shooting Black men, guilty or not. And they are.  Click here for list.

PS. Since Officer Slager had Mr. Scott’s driver’s license and license plate number, instead of chasing after him, why didn’t he have Mr. Scott’s car towed and dispatch another set of officers to wait at Mr. Scott’s home to arrest him when he got there. He could just said, “Hey dude. Why you running? I know where you live.”
