Shooting of police in Florida part of growing trend of African resistance to occupation
The crisis of the U.S. State was exposed and deepened on Monday, January 24, 2011 as one African man killed two local police, wounded a U.S. marshal and held off more than 100 police from various state and federal police agencies for several hours.
Earlier that morning, a U.S. marshal and two local police came to the home of 39-year-old Hydra Lacy to arrest him, and he apparently had determined that he was not going to join the more than one million African captives locked up in U.S. prisons that day.
While imperialist media attempts to deal with this as an isolated incident, the fact is that there is a trend across the U.S. of growing resistance by African people to police occupation.
That occupation — not unlike the occupation of the land of the Palestinian people — includes the regular harassment, brutality and murder police impose on African people.
However, Africans, no longer willing to accepting the State’s monopoly on violence, have been engaging is serious resistance. Within this same 24-hour period, at least 11 cops were shot across the U.S.
