The 1994 Crime Bill President Bill Clinton signed into law militarized the police departments across the U.S. and equipped them with military-grade weapons to fight big and petty crimes using the same tools. Since the Police has turned these weapons on the African American communities and other minority groups, which resulted in thousands of unwarranted deaths of innocent black men. The Police in America is totally out of control. Our country has become a violent police state that most white people do not see, nor experience because it never impacts us. Only blacks and Hispanics bear the brunt of the brutality of mostly white police. This is a deliberate white supremacist policy to continue its tradition of killing at will the minorities that actually built this nation.
And as if this were not enough, the Crime Bill also provided the police with a wide degree of leeway in harassing blacks for minor offenses, which resulted in the United States housing 25% of prisoners around the globe when it only boasts 5% of the population.
In the land of the free, I might add.
Why in hell do police un-holster their weapons against unarmed civilians? Where is the logic in such human rights transgression? What split decision BS are you talking about with unarmed civilians?
DE-MILITARIZE THE POLICE
The U.S. Government must take steps to scale back the militarization of police departments across the nation by stripping them of unwarranted equipment usually third-world dictators use to violently control the masses. What purpose does our Constitution serve if it permits discrimination and violent oppression against one third of the U.S. population?
Here is a stat to show the Apartheid state of our police. Black men represent 6% of the population but boast 50% of prisoners. Not a week goes by without learning of another senseless death of a black man or a brown child shot by policemen for no reason and no cause. This can partially stop if we de-militarize the police departments across the country. If we strip them of their riot gear and heavy weapons to send a signal that their job is not to intimidate and kill people, but to protect and serve. It’s psychological.
Nothing infuriates me more than seeing the police taking the law in their own hands. Lynching their way through the black communities hiding behind favorable laws and worse intentions. Why in hell do police un-holster their weapons against unarmed civilians? Where is the logic in such human rights transgression? What split decision BS are you talking about with unarmed civilians?
It is time for the wise people with real power to recognize that racism is costly. It costs businesses, it costs city halls, and it costs the communities everywhere.
SO OUT OF CONTROL, THE POLICE IS TORTURING MEMBERS OF OUR BELOVED US ARMED FORCES
To get a sense of how much out of control the police in this country has become, watch the video below, widely circulated, of two police officers from Windsor, VA beat, abuse, and torture a US Army Second Lieutenant Caron Nazario serving honorably his country for no reason other than they failed to see his temporary car tags.
How dare these retards humiliate those we hold so dear to our hearts? People in the US Armed Forces who put themselves on the line every day to keep us all safe. While the police go on one rampage after another killing at will innocent civilians. Does anyone see how wrong this picture is, or am I the only one vehemently protesting here?
I am never one to advocate violence, but honestly, I wish the US Army would send few good men to beat the hell out of those two police officers. Teach the rest of the police across the country that you do not mess around with our cherished armed forces. Now that it is off my chest, I hope it does not really happen.
That is how angry police makes us all feel. This is how the police in America is totally out of control.
Money to pay for police brutality directly impacts the economic conditions of local communities.
DISMANTLE THE POLICE UNIONS
Do the police unions not realize that when the public turns on their members, their very own survival is on the line? Don’t they realize that when the public starts hating the police, it will lead to unintended social consequences? Or the police unions leadership is neck deep into racism that they don’t see the train wreck coming their way?
I say strip the police of all the tools of intimidation, de-militarize them, and clean the police departments of any police officers who displayed past violent behavior or who had verifiable complaints lodged against them by civilians. Starting with dismantling the police unions and taking away their powers to turn a blind eye to the lynching of innocent black men while hiding behind the law.
Otherwise, just watch for riots to break out every time a police officer kills a black man, which costs the city money it does not have, or settle lawsuits with money it can ill afford to waste away. Money to pay for police brutality directly impacts the economic conditions of local communities, and only such negative consequences attributable to police action would bring about real change.
It is time for the wise people with real power to recognize that racism is costly. It costs businesses, it costs city halls, and it costs the communities everywhere. Not to speak of the image cost to the land of the free when videos of police brutality make countries like Cuba and Venezuela look so human.
Enough double standards.
