Michael Brown killed a second time! Are you $%#@ing kidding me? A new rant from the FILTHY PUNDIT(He ought to have his mouth washed out with soap) Politics, way over the %$#@ing top!………………..Ferguson police chief, Thomas Jackson in a press statement named the officer responsible for the shooting death of 18 year old Michael Brown. Thomas, in a statement meant to justify the shooting and obscure already public facts surrounding the death from witnesses than add clarity, refused to take questions. It had the effect of executing Michael Brown a second time by connecting him with a robbery. Witnesses say that the officer did not question Brown, or stop them regarding an investigation, nor did he or his companion match descriptions and or suspects captured by security video. Instead Brown and his companion were ordered to “get the fuck out of the street,” by Jackson, who then doubled back. The bitter sucker punch by Jackson and the Ferguson Police Department, embarrassed and emasculated over their occupation style-tactics to bully the community, and to assist the media in framing a very small minority of the protesters as looters only underscores the unprofessionalism and incompetence of that leadership. The protests should also underscore a simmering rage in the Black community that needs to be honestly addressed, rather than continuing what amounts to a passive-apartheid system. Never once did even the city’s dog catcher offer respect to protesters by engaging in a conversation. Instead they copped this Mississippi-burning sort of put-the-niggers-in-their-place war footing. And claiming there is no racism and that the system is fair to minorities by pointing to individuals is like saying that Las Vegas’ number one priority is to make you rich. But if you think that, as Frederick Douglas exhorted, “Power concedes nothing without demand,” then the pressure by the community has so far been a success. It is a myth that Gandhi and ML King jr. were exclusively nonviolent. Gandhi praised Indian revolutionaries and King in his last years was moving closer to a position held by Malcolm X. So for all those that believe protests should be calm and orderly: Bullshit! A riot has no purpose, but a rebellion, like Ferguson, demands change, redress and justice. Every protest at some point must carry the promise of violence if it is to have depth and to be believable, otherwise it is a parade; and parades are for clowns and children!
