The news has reached across the pond.
“They had beat him to a pulp. He had bruises all over,” she said.
“His head was swollen like a watermelon. His neck was busting because of the swelling. They broke his neck. His nose was like an S. They actually just beat the crap out of him, so when I saw him, I knew my son was gone. Even if he did live he would have been a vegetable.”
Wells said she hadn’t been able to bring herself to watch the video, which she said she’d been told was “horrific”.
Is there anyone out there who is still defending those black killer cops because they are black? Just wondering.
The value of having zero-compassion comes from the racist drug war. Racist Christians cannot see Blacks as human lest they also come to be accepted as equals. To keep them 'in their place', cruel drug laws get the support of the Evangelicals, at least until they find themselves targeted by police (Rush Limbaugh comes to mind). Biden could do a lot to address all that, but so far, as little as possible, campaign promises be damned.
I am beginning to understand the cry "Defund the Police!"
It seems that it has become endemic in the USA that those who uphold the law consider themselves to be above the law.
It's kinda difficult for me to comprehend what it is like to live in a polarised black vs white culture like they seem to have in the US. When black people in general are seen as victims of racism, and when any of them get mistreated by white cops, there is immediately a public outcry against white-on-black racism; I see a pattern. But on this occasion, it is horrific black-on-black violence committed by black cops, and it doesn't fit in the usual scenario. I wonder how people are perceiving this all in the US. Is it still about racism, identity politics, culture war, etc.? Something seems to be destroying humanity.
I believe they consider themselves to be "the law".
