When Do You Validate Your Position

I hate to be critical about the intelligence of the people that live in the United States, but are we all so stupid that we just accept what one person says without even checking to see if it true or not? If you want to know the truth, sometimes you have to do a little research. Allow me to get you started:

This is the Washington Post Police Shootings Database which is responsible for most of the racial issues facing America today. You see, this database fails to demonstrate the actual racial breakdown of America, and most importantly the racial breakdown where people are killed by police. This is where my research of this data began. If you open the web page and scroll down you will find some very interesting information relative to police shootings. The following heading: “Black Americans are killed at a much higher rate than White Americans” paints a picture of Law Enforcement Officers killing Black people because of the color of their skin. This is far from the truth and our politicians, educators, and those that influence others are negligent in allowing this farce to continue.

THE FACTS:

Although Black people are only 13% of the US Population in the cities most killings take place in Black people are 23 to 60% of the population, in some cities equal to or more than the White population. Yet, more white people are killed by police than Blacks.

Black people ARE NOT killed by police because they are Black. Black people are killed by police because they resist arrest or act a fool. Look at the history of those killed by police. George Floyd did not end up on the ground with a cop’s knee in his back because he cooperated. DO NOT MISUNDERSTAND! George Floyd should not have died and his death was while in the custody of a negligent cop, which is a whole bunch different than being shot by a cop. Would things of turned out better had Floyd of cooperated with officers?

The current racial unrest is being manipulated by racists making money off racism.

“Black Lives Matter” is not a champion of the Black People. BLM is a racist organization that had nothing to do with cases such as George Floyd. BLM got lucky because their name was made the place for Corporate America to donate millions of dollars demonstrating support for the Black cause hoping Black America would not burn their corporations to the ground. Black Lives Matter has done nothing beneficial to Black America, but they sure are loving the money they got.

You cannot defeat racism with racism; Giving to people based on the color of their skin will not solve the issues, fairness will. Give to those in need, fairly

You can disagree with me, but do the research before doing so. Feel free to prove me wrong. It will not hurt my feelings, not even a little bit if you can find a better answer than I provide. The truth is people are too quick to play the race card rather than seek the real reasons for the sufferings of the people. But there is one thing I am sure of. We as a people have got to move beyond skin color if we are ever to defeat racism.

Listen, I am aware my opinion is not popular and I know it angers some, but you do not have to share my opinion. But, to disagree with me requires you do the research to prove me wrong. I am 100% for the elimination of racism and I pray that one-day equality will be the way. What I seek by writing to this blog is informed interaction. People have got to quit being led by those that know less than they do.

No Justice

I want to bring your attention to an article I read today in which 2 men were convicted of the rape and murder of an 11 year old girl and later released and pardoned after DNA proved someone else did the crime 30 years after the men sent to prison. Go read the story, then please return here to see where the real crime goes unpunished. Two Black brothers were awarded $75 million after false rape, murder convictions led to more than 30 years in prison (msn.com)

If you have read the story these two gents got paid 1 million dollars each for each year in prison, but has justice been served? A serious crime has been committed without anyone being held responsible. Two men were arrested, charged with a crime they did not commit, sentenced to prison (At least one if not both to Death Row) losing their liberty, their lives, loves, and family. How did they get there?

There is a set of rules for damn near everything and if you break those rules you should haved to pay for sdoing so. So how did these men end up spending 31 years in prison for a crime they did not commit? Did a witness lie, cop lie or fail to do his job correctly, Prosecuter, District Attorney, or Judge fail to do their job properly? In order for this situation to happen somebody broke the law and it caused these men to lose 31 years of their lives. And with the exception of the witness, all of the others are supposed to be qualified professionals. Somebody involved in this situation nereds to answer for his/her misdeeds.

Do you think getting killed by a cop is the most serious offense committed by a cop? A cop that lies, withholds evidence, coercion for confessions, falsifies reports, is a criminal. Attorneys and Judges that allow information that may lead to no conviction to be forgotten, are criminals. Why are they not being held responsible for their crimes?

It is really hard to describe what life is like in prison. Think how difficult it would be to describe life in prison when you committed no crime. Prison is not nice. If you are dead, at least you do not have to live the trespass upon you every day. In prison you are either one bad mother@#$%^ or you have to worry about rape, robbery, getting beat down or stabbed by another inmate. Then you have to worry about getting shot by the prison cops. And, all for a crime you didn’t commit.

The way the American Justice System is supposed to work, this situation should not happen. When it does it is usually because somebody has made an innocent person victim by not doing their job correctly. That person needs to be held accountable for their criminal acts leading to the imprisonment of an innocent person, and everything that happens to that person subsedquent to their being falsly convicted.

The injustice of nobody being held responsible for a false conviction is something that needs resolution. The persons involved in such conviction need be held accountable. Although this story is about two Black men, it happens to all races. Yes, there are men/women in prison that have not committed the crime convicted of. And, there are worse things than being killed. Seeking accountability of police in a case of resisting arrest is ridiculous compared to the injustice of being convicted for a crime you did not commit.

I’m curious, What do you think of this topic? It concerns me because I have a background in Law Enforcement\Corrections and my belief is that our Justice System is designed to let a criminal go rather than convict an innocent. We know that isn’t true today. Please comment on this topic.
