REST IN POWER BROTHER
DECLARE WAR ON MINNESOTA
Should we welcome the verdict? Yes, absolutely.
Take Your Pick
Take your pick. Was it the fading cries of not being able to
breathe? Or how about his fading pleas for “mama”? The
indifference of the other cops? Or how about the psychotic looking
expression of Derek Chauvin as he murdered George Floyd with his
knee on his neck, with his hands casually in his pockets? Maybe it
was Chauvin’s slight puff of the chest and casual re-arranging of his
uniform as he walked away after butchering an innocent Black man on the streets of Minneapolis?
Daunte Wright. When Does This Ever Stop?
Daunte was twenty years old. Not even a third of three score year
and ten. And now he has forever gone, shot dead in the chest by a
police-woman who claims to have been reaching for her taser, not
her firearm. This murder was committed by one officer Kim Potter
of Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, police. She had been with that
particular force since 1995. That’s 26 years and some-how we are
supposed to accept that a “professional” of that service and stature
couldn’t make a determination between a taser and a firearm?
