I GOT IT BAD, GOT IT BAD, GOT IN BAD . . . I'M HOT FOR TEACHER! BAD MEDICINE IS WHAT I NEED! FRIENDS TELL FRIENDS, WHAT THEY NEED TO HEAR, NOT WHAT THEY WANT TO HEAR! LEARN TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN WHAT, IS A WANT, FANTASY, AND WHAT IS A NEED, BAD ASS TEACHER!
Last week when, I left, Missouala, Montana, after, almost being assassinated, in Kalispell, Montana, there was a, presentation, sponsored by someone, at the Missoula Children's Theater entitled something like, Law Enforcement After the Ferguson Effect. I believe this was, held on Thursday night, the 6th, of July, and I wanted to attend . . . possible reason for the amped up heat on me, leaving, sooner, than I wanted to, on the 3rd, only to resurface, in Seattle, just in time, to catch the news, on the pregnant mom, shooting, and the $15 million dollar award for damages, based on a SWAT killing, all three blacks, with not a thought, of Black Lives Matter, often seen by cops, councils, politicians, as a hindrance against cops, preventing them from doing their jobs? I recall, in the last 6 months, hearing the Chicago cops, lamenting, the fact that the Ferguson Effect was creating problems for them, doing their jobs, and a female cop, stopped, from shooting, someone who attacked her, worried about what the media or social media might do, had she shot, the dude that attacked her.
I think this sentiment, shows, where the mindset of law enforcement now days, has, gone to, and I believe, that it is a direct result of the Patriot Act Effect . . . taking away, citizens constitutional and civil rights, all for national security, allowing cops, to be kings and queens of the streets, using self-protection, of the system and cops, cop rules and justice, rather than, finding, pride, in serving and protecting their communities, and their citizens, treating, WE THE PEOPLE as the enemy, while, terrorists, on to watch lists, or cyber spies, Russians, who have been long time enemies, are walking and cavorting, freely, among, top leaders in the country, who vowed to protect, us through, national security, and cyberwarfare! The freedoms for law enforcement, and a loosening of constitutional rights, and prohibitions on cops, were taken off for terrorists in our midst, not, for citizens, yet we have, somehow, reversed, that, freedom, to go after particularly, blacks, and using, traditional, self-defense, mantras, justifying, the use of lethal force, of citizens, by saying, that officers were in in fear of eminent death or serious bodily injury!
This excuse for force and execution, of blacks, has reached almost comical, and irrational, use, when, some, cop, or cops, with badges, guns drawn, protected by law, and firepower, turn their guns, on victims, who are simply asking for help with a broken down, car, or have a standard traffic ticket, or, give cops a call for help, to protect their homes! who are unarmed, not threatening, and scared shitless, in fear of the cops! Fuck, I have PTSD, so, what is the average, black man, in particular, thinking, wondering, and now in fear of their lives, just seeing cop, but being reliant on law enforcement to protect them against, thieves, and predators, that, threaten their own safety . . . if cops are afraid of blacks, who the fuck is to protect them? Someone, asked me, how I thought, we could fix the country . . . my answer, is simply, to start, to follow, your oaths of office, prioritizing, rights, freedoms, liberties, protections, privileges, that have made this country great, for 240 years, plus! Believe me, it is not, just law enforcement, that needs this training, but, now, Silicone Valley, Uber, Fox News, and our President, because of sexual discrimination, harassment, violations of due process, and equal protections, it is all related, and has foundation in constitutional principles!
I am a hands on teacher, relevancy, is what, makes people learn, and so this is the perfect timing, for Seattle, just a day or two after, the huge ass damages, came out in the paper. I am going to take the title, the facts, and, the one paragraph, that, the news reporters, used to summarize, what SWAT did wrong, and what the money was based on . . . my guess, is that, almost everything on the list, starting with, unreasonable search and seizure, has some connection with the Bill of Rights, or some statutory, law, that, is based on, those rights, found in the Constitution, that every, cop, prosecutor, judge, elected official, military member, and almost anyone, serving in the public arena, takes and oath, to, to, and this will vary, but only slightly, from profession to profession, to preserve, protect and defend, the United States Constitution, to the best of your ability! That does not suggest PERFECTION . . . we are all human, we all make mistakes, but we can all do better, and if we know more, we can do more and we can do better!
BRING IT ON!
Jury awards more than $15M to family of unarmed black man killed by SWAT sniper in Fife
The Seattle Times--July 14, 2017
A federal jury found police violated the rights of 30-year-old Leonard Thomas when a family argument escalated into a siege that ended when, Thomas was shot by a sniper in front of his 4 year old son.
RAISING THE BAR
Pierce County SWAT leader, said, that the shot that killed Thomas on the front porch of his Fife home, with his 4-year-old son, clasp in his arms, as a "frickin' million dollar shot."
A unanimous federal jury, for the Thomas family and estate on EVERY COUNT: unreasonable seizure, excessive force, deprivation of family relationship, using explosives to breach the home, unreasonable killing of the family dog, false arrest, negligent investigation and causing server emotional distress.
This is ANY CITY U.S.A., and Many have Paid Out, multi-million dollar settlements . . . The question for tax payers, is how long, can we afford, to let our police departments, play these dangerous games? How long will we allow, citizens' right, constitutional, civil, and human, rights to be violated?
Dare to Do: Know More. Do More. Do Better!
Take the list of counts, the federal jury found, against the cop shot, go either in book form, or online, find a copy of the Bill of Rights, and see if you can, match, the violation of rights, with a amendment that was violated . . . the Bill of Rights is found in the Constitution, but, it is probably online, or the web, Internet, listed, alone!
GROWING PAINS . . . YOU WON'T LEARN AS MUCH, IF I DO ALL THE WORK!
