The actions against the Baltimore officers will play throughout the legal system and they will be found not guilty. They have become sacrificial souls. The thin blue line will dissappear for a period of time. Those who wanted to police themselves will find out what that really means. Good luck to you and keep your head low.

The Ghost of Emmett Till

In the 1950's a fourteen year old teenager (Emmett Till) was viciously murdered.in Mississippi. That event, more than any other atrocity, sparked the Modern Civil Rights Movement. Here we are again on the verge of the social unrest that defined that era. In many ways America has changed for the better. Millions of Americans who couldn't vote can now vote and discrimination in public places and the workplace is against the law. Slowly the rights of these Americans have eroded, highlighted by the Gestapo attitude and tactics against people of color that has resurfaced.

A Balck man is killed by Police in the US Every 28 hours

Police officers, security guards, or self-appointed vigilantes extrajudicially killed at least 313 African-Americans in 2012, according to a recent study. This means a black person was killed by a security officer every 28 hours. The report notes that it's possible that the real number could be much higher.

White Security Guard Attacks Blind Black Man For Standing In Front Of A Resturant

Teachers In Atlanta Convicted In Cheating Scandal - Organized Crime

Eleven teachers in Atlanta were convicted of violating standardized school test protocols. Not only were they fired from their teaching jobs, but prosecutors claimed that the Federal Organized Crime Statute applies to this case and could land the teachers in jail for twenty years. What makes this case so interesting is that this was an equal opportunity crime where White and Black teachers were involved. But, none of the White teachers were put on trial and won't face any jail time. What an interesting example how justice is equal in this country.

Zimmermans' Favorite Song?

Tagged:  

Anyone else heard the rumor this is Z-mans' favorite song? If so, it's a dirty rotten shame!

"Don't you ever laugh as the hearse goes by,
For you may be the next one to die.
They wrap you up in a big white sheet
From your head down to your feet.
They put you in a big black box
And cover you up with dirt and rocks.
All goes well for about a week,
Until your coffin begins to leak.
The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
The worms play pinochle on your snout,
They eat your eyes, they eat your nose,
They eat the jelly between your toes.
A big green worm with rolling eyes

Try Stepping Into Trayvon Martin's Shoes For A Minute

We all know George Zimmerman's side of the story regarding the night he shot Trayvon Martin, his state of mind, how he feared for his life. But, Martin can't tell his side of things. He was a human being with a state of mind too. With all that was going on that night, does anyone ever consider that he was probably fearing for his life as well. At what point would he have had the right to take action to defend his own life?

Let's stop making it all about George for a moment and put ourselves in Martin's shoes.

Case Dismissed Against Policeman For Shooting Black Woman In Back Of Head.

The charges against a Chicago policeman were dismissed for shooting a Black Woman in the back of the head. According to the news report, an off-duty policeman ordered a group of people at a park to stop being loud and one of the group pulled a gun. The policeman fired several times into the crowd striking an unarmed female in the back of the head. This sounds very suspicious. No gun was found and no one in the crowd was charged with pulling a gun. I guess making too much noise in a park gets the death penalty.

This must be "Obama outsmarting Republicans" again.

Remember, the President is smarter than the Republicans and everything they do is them playing right into his hands.

Also, by utilizing their Constitutional mandated duties they were accused of treason on this board.

In truth all of that was B.S. being pushed by those who have failed to grasp a basic understanding of how their government works.

Everybody's upset with Obama, but they seem to love this guy.

Another "Typical Free Pass"!!

A more clear example of name calling being overlooked when the name caller is a minority cannot be found! And the ultra serious N-word was used! The kid SHOULD get a lawyer, too.
