I used to be the person at the party, sticking up for the Man. "The police are only doing their job. They are here to help. . . blah, blah, blah." I had never looked beyond the pages of the newspaper, to see why my primarily law abiding friends feared the police.
This was before being assaulted by the police at a peaceful demonstration, while trying to comply with their demands to leave the area. While nursing my wounds, I was forced to realize my stupidity, for trusting the police to respond peacefully to a peaceful situation. The police are out of control, and they have guns.
Now Kendra James is dead, and what are we going to do about it?
What threat did she pose. If she ran over an officers foot, that sucks, but why did they feel it neccessary to take her life in kind? An eye for an eye, a life for a foot?
I see very little information about what happened on mainstream media. Aside from a vague blurb, family info, and a short history of her former run-ins with the police, the "news" did not give much information about Kendra, or the final moments of her life.
IMC take the lead. Investigate, and plan to address the findings with mass demonstrations. The police shot and killed someone who as far as I can tell was unarmed.
Rodney King sparked a riot, and he wasn't left dead, with children weeping in the wake.
The madmen are armed.
