Timothy McGinty, Cuyahoga County Ohio Prosecutor, put up his best fight to get his Grand Jury to say that Murderer-with-a-badge Cop Timothy Loehmann had committed no crime. He was in his best Defense Attorney mode and he won the case he made to himself.
Although I expected that kind of bullshit from this Prosecutor, I am still torn up. Living with the reality of this on-going Slave Catcher Privilege which the USA has given all levels of Law Enforcement, from street cops to the court system to prison guards, it is hard not to scream out. Sometimes, with those I love and trust, I do.
We live in a culture which chooses to terrorize part of its population. The terrorists are sent by the state to do what they are doing to us. My anger is with the whole damn nation.
The missing agent of positive change is White America. It controls and pays the murderers and provides the protection they need to remain above the law.
Most Whites don’t care about anything that does not directly benefit them. If they gave a shit these problems would have been solved before we were born.
The majority of Whites are closer to Donald Trump than they are to any advocate for Civil Rights for all. White people have gotten worked up over many issues since the end of legal Slavery in 1865 without giving the same attention to Equal Treatment issues. Most just don’t give a shit. The few who care are outcasts in the White community. I am sure you have witnessed that.
When you add the Trump supporters to the supporters of the other worthless (but less crude) Republicans, plus the Independents and Democrats who don’t give a shit, you have a majority! That’s why the bullshit continues.
The Presidential Election won’t correct Law Enforcement abuses. The entire political, social, economic fabric of this nation is infected with greed and hate. The USA chooses to hold onto its ugly character. It has romanticized its own worst features and refuses to repent.
Voting in any Democrat to the White House is good, but it won’t correct the corrupted souls of this nation which tolerate continued injustices. Obama can’t indict Timothy Loehmann for Tamir Rice’s murder. My family and the families of millions are still vulnerable to the penalties for the crime of #BreathingWhileBlack
Some think political people can and will “fix” things. I disagree. Both political parties are magnets for unethical people. The smell of possible power makes them high. My father used to say “There are Dema-Crooks and Republa-Crooks”.
Over the last 150 years both parties have had plenty of time to make good on Americas false promises. We don’t need progress. They promised that myth to my great-great-grandparents. We need Justice, Equality and all that.
I hope Bernie Sanders hires very few political operatives in his campaign and administration. Hillary et al are common politicians who wheel and deal. They are loyal to winning, not truth. If she wins she must be confronted continually to keep her from selling us out.
The Republican Party is trying everyday to drag us back to servitude behind a smokescreen of morality, Christianity, patriotism, and bogus fiscal conservatism.
I am tired of the Two-Party Bullshitters Ball. How about you.
