Shameful Display of the Traducers in Blue Which Cost You Millions

WE SEEM LIKE KNOTS ON THE WALL WHILE THEY SPEAK OF EMPATHY FOR KILLERS.
THE SEEMINGLY HEARTFUL AND TEARJERKER DISPLAY OF AN EVENT WHICH COST MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO TAXPAYERS FOR THE BURIAL OF FOUR COPS WHO WERE GUNNED DOWN BY LAVELLE MIXON IN OAKLAND, WAS SOMETHING OF AN THEATRICAL EVENT. THEY EVEN KEPT THE BELOVED MAYOR OF OAKLAND OUT SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY WERE UNSURE OF WHAT HE MIGHT SAY. THIS IS BECAUSE SOMETIMES HE THINKS HE'S WITH US IN OAKLAND AND OTHER TIMES, HE THINKS HE'S TRULLY WITH US IN OAKLAND. I HEARD HIM SAY (AFTER THE SHOOTINGS) THAT " I'M NOT GOING TO POLITICIZE DEATH". BUT THIS WAS AFTER HE DID POLITICIZE EVERYTHING FOLLOWING THE COLD CALCULATED MURDER OF OSCAR GRANT III.

HE APOLOGETICALLY POKED HIS FACE AND PERSON INTO EVERY ASPECT OF THE MURDER OF OSCAR GRANT. EXCEPT FOR WHEN IT CAME TO STAND WITH THE 100 ENRAGED DEMONSTRATORS WHO WERE ATTACKED AND ARRESTED BY POLICE. AND IF YOU COULD PERMIT ME TO SPEAK SOME EBONICS HERE- HE DONE TOOK SIDES WITH THE PO PO IN TALKIN THAT PO PO POOH POOH BOUT PEOPLE PIMPIN OFF THE STILL BODY OF YOUNG BROTHER OSCAR.

HOW CAN THIS MISFIT PLAY BOTH SIDES OF THE ISSUE. IN FACT HOW IS IT THAT WE ALLOW THE TRADUCERS IN BLUE TO PLAY OFF A BIGGER ISSUE? IS IT THAT THEY HAVE BEEN GIVEN A PASS WHEN IT COMES TO UTILIZING ALL THE FINANCES IT TAKES TO LAMBASTE THE LOOMING POLICE STATE.
I MUST ADMIT WITH SOME GUILT AFTER WATCHING THE WHITE CLOWNS AND ESPECIALLY THE COLOED CLOWNS THAT I WAS A BIT MOVED BY THE WEEPING OF THESE COLORED FELLERS IN UNIFORM AS THEY CRIED FOR THEIR WHITE COUNTERPARTS. AND YET, YOU CANNOT KNOW HOW I WAS UN MOVED.......THESE ARE THE SAME INFALLIBLE, INHUMANE MOTHERFUCKERS WHO DENY YOU MEDICATION IN JAILS- WHO WOULD IN SECONDS ERASE YOU FROM THIS EARTH IF YOU CONTEST THEIR INSTRUCTIONS AND ORDERS. THESE ARE THE SEMBLANCE OF THE CHICKEN GEORGES THAT HAVE TURNED US IN FOR DECADES. ON THE GROUND IT WOULD SEEM THAT PEOPLE LIKE ME WHO ARE LOOKING AT THE MEDIA CIRCUSES COULD SEEM A BIT PREJUDICED. WERE IT NOT FOR THE SCARS ON MY HEAD FROM THE CIVIL RIGHTS STRUGGLES, THEN I WOULD AGREE THAT POLICEMEN ARE HUMAN TOO.

REALISTICALLY- LETS STOP FOR A MINUTE AND LOOK AT THE MISVIVINGS AND REALITIES OF THE MOMENT. WE ARE BEING ASKED TO FORGET THE MILLIONS OF YOUTH THAT ARE NOW KEPT IN THE PRISON INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX. TO FORGET THAT WE HAVE BEEN GENTRIFIZED, CRIMINALIZED, MURDERED AND (IN THE CASE OF AMADOU DIALLO SODOMIZED). WHITH TYISHA MILLER -THAT WE COULD HAVE BEEN A LITTLE TOO IMPULSIVE WHEN WE CRIED- "SHE WAS MURDERED WHILE SLEEPING" -THAT WE WERE TOO UNCOMPRIMISING WHEN RUDY CARDENAS WAS PUT TO DEATH- THAT PERHAPS AMADOU DIALLO DESERVED 41 SHOTS FOR HAVING SIMPLY PULLED OUT HIS WALLET. LISTEN THEN SO CALLED AMERICANS OF ALL COLORS- TOO MANY OF US ARE UNEMPLOYED AND HUNGRY TO ACCEPT MILLION DOLLAR FUNERALS FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER PROVIDED EQUAL PROTECTION UNDER THE LAWS FOR ANY OF US......
IN THE END , IT ISN'T AN ISSUE OF EMPATHY AND APATHY. IT IS THE VERY ISSUE WHICH MALCOLM X RAISED BEFORE ANOTHER GENERATION OF YOUTH -THAT ONCE AGAIN "THE GOVERNMENT HAS FAILED YOU". AS AN ELDER, i'M HERE TO TELL YOU THAT IT IS SO VERY TRUE- THAT WHEN GUNS ARE OUTLAWED , THEN ONLY OUTLAWS WILL HAVE GUNS- AND THAT THE OUTLAWS ARE WITHIN THE OPD...
