I am being pushed to speak out more and more because people are using words I was using 4 decades ago more these days. Whether it’s at the #NYPDBlue12 press conference on their law suit against the quota system and how it destroys lives, Nicholas Heyward Sr. press conference on reopening the case of the killing of his son by NYPD cop Brian George in 1994 by DA Ken Thompson, which he now feels his hopes are crushed by news of a recent letter written by DA Ken Thompson to the judge presiding over the case of NYPD cop Peter Liang requesting leniency and No Jail Time.
I need to speak out more because I was intimidated into silence by the very people who should be on my side all my life. People are so blind to how programmed they are to keep the system going at their own expense and the expense of their own children. It’s right in front of people’s faces and they can’t see it. Or, they see it but, are just too fearful of owning their power.
At a press conference last week outside of 350 Jay street Brooklyn, the office of DA Ken Thompson, press and supporters gathered to hear family, assemblyman Charles Barron and attorney Roger Wareham speak about the letter DA Ken Thompson wrote to judge Danny Chun. Charles Barron spoke about the people saying to him recently, that they’ve been doing everything in peaceful ways but. “brother Barron, they’re not hearing us”. Then, Barron referred to Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as the “prince of peace” and quoting him saying, “Riots are the voice of the unheard”. Barron said that even MLK didn’t condemn riots. Barron asked, “Am I saying we should be violent? Am I saying we should do something we haven’t done? I’m saying, THE SYSTEM WILL DETERMINE THAT.” You can’t get any truer words. What I don’t understand is why people being oppressed and their rights violated are the ones worrying about being “violent” when they’re the ones who are Responding to violence being done TO them? This is how the system keeps people in line. It’s the system being violent gradually, over time, robbing and oppressing the people of their rights. The people are not the ones being violent when they have a Justified, Rightful responds to having Violence DONE TO THEM. This is how the Powers that Be mind fuck the people and train them that they’re being violent or criminal in some way by having a Healthy reaction to what is done to them. That is how the people get further and further into health Debt. They’re healthy responses are criminalized. This is how I grew up. I will never get over it and not stop writing about it til there’s justice. Instead of continuing to work For the corrupt system as it is, the people including myself, deserve reparations and justice.
Commissioner Bratton called Barron’s words “inciting a riot” and that “Barron was treading on shaky ground with his remarks”.“They come very close to being criminal in terms of inciting violence and riots,” Bratton said. “And so… he should be very careful about his words.” Bratton also called DA Ken Thompson’s move to call for leniency for Liang “courageous”.
It’s the same ol attitude coming from the abusers of power. They are never wrong. The people are never right and justified in calling out the system no matter how corrupt and rigged the justice system is.
DA ken Thompson wrote in the letter to Danny Chun that putting NYPD cop Peter Liang in jail won’t keep the public safe because he’s not a threat. And yet, Rikers Island is FULL of people who are NO threat to the public and that doesn’t keep them from being put in Rikers Island and they didn’t even murder anyone!
Barron said that the system cannot keep having the people go by way of peaceful means and ignore them, then “Violence is inevitable”. Which is basic math, cause and effect which everyone must live under, INCLUDING and ESPECIALLY people who occupy positions who are supposed to do right with their power.
For Bratton to say what he said is just more of the same bullying, abuse of power and mind fucking. He thinks that no matter how rigged and unlawful the system is, that he is in it’s violation of the rights of the public, the people are always in the wrong when they rise. That the laws of nature will not eventually kick in and take over, he’s sadly mistaken.
Those in positions of power but, do not necessarily deserve the position will find out soon enough who is running things and it isn’t man. It’s not a difficult concept to understand that when people are abused again and again they are going to push back.
Like Charles Barron said, “The system will determine” whether the people are going to rise up and push back because it’s the system who is the Violent one and Natural law does not discriminate.
Those in positions of power forget what they’re supposed to be doing there. They’re supposed to be there FOR the people, not for their own Ego.
Let me add that Bratton is also the one who said the NYPD quota system was BS and yet we have the #NYPDBlue12 who are suing the NYPD over the quota system.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that the system cares about nothing else but $$ and creating a debtors prison all over the country. Private, for profit prisons are popping up all over amerikka. Who do you think they’re going to fill them with? They need to make someone the GMO “criminal” like I was made to be as a child in my own house. It’s clear the system is not about raising people to be smart, healthy successful adults. The Corps don’t want the competition. Of course they’d rather “profit” off turning you into a criminal instead.
