Ladies and Gentleman, the man that will be in history books. He was throwing the burning tear gas. Not to the cops but away from the children protesting. In his American Shirt and bag of chips. Check his twitter.
HE HAS ALSO STATED NOT TO PURCHASE THE T-SHIRTS THAT ARE BEING SOLD WITH HIS IMAGE BECAUSE HIM NOR THE TOWN OF FERGUSON WILL SEE THAT MONEY!
Just needs to be stated again!
“Not to the cops but away from the children protesting”
Petition to get all cops to wear cameras:
Come on spread it!
A police officer shot and killed an unarmed, mentally challenged black man in Los Angeles on Monday, his family said.
Family members identified Ezell Ford, 25, as the man the cop killed on the 200 block of West 65th St. about 8:20 p.m. And one eyewitness says the officer yelled “shoot him” before killing the man in the street.
His mother, Tritobia Ford, said the shooting was unjustified and that her son was complying with the officer’s orders, according to local media.
"My heart is so heavy," she told KTLA. ”My son was a good kid. He didn’t deserve to die the way he did.”
Ford, she said, was lying on the ground when the officer shot him in the back three times.
A man claiming to be Ford’s cousin told the station he witnessed the incident and that there was no justification for excessive force.
"They laid him out and for whatever reason, they shot him in the back, knowing, mentally, he has complications. Every officer in this area, from the Newton Division, knows that — that this child has mental problems," he told KTLA.
And another eyewitness told the Huffington Post that an officer screamed out “shoot him” before the unarmed Ford was filled with three slugs.
From their condemnation of Donald Sterling to their vote lodged for Obama, white people (and white “liberals” especially) show their true colors whenever another black person is lynched and murdered. They have no interest in dismantling white supremacy or working against racist power structures, as their interest in “progressive” causes only continues as long as black lives are still seen as inherently valueless in our society. If you can vote for Obama with one hand and suddenly be mum when black children are being victimized and lynched and their communities invaded by police with military equipment when they say enough is enough, I have no interest in you as an “ally.” If you were outspoken about Donald Sterling and yet you take a completely ahistorical view and paint Mike Brown’s case as one “where you need more facts” or is a “matter of opinion,” you are a fucking hypocrite. I have no time for any of this anymore and all of the POC invoking respectability politics and the worst silencing tactics of white people to derail these discussions. A black child was effectively lynched in front of his community and all you can tell me is “not all white people” and deploy more white derailment tactics so that we do not have a serious discussion about how violently antiblack our country is? No I have no time or patience for you either. At the end of the day, these people are all disgusting and my heart is with all of those in Ferguson right now and Mike Brown’s family as they continue to demand justice. And to all of these other folks with their bullshit, all I can say at this point is “Fuck all of them”.
….hit home for anyone else?
