Meanwhile we’re going to hear ad nauseum that Michael Brown was shot from the front, suggesting he was “attacking” the officer. But you watch the video of Kajieme Powell and you see they will open fire whenever the suspect is facing them and they can use that to justify it. 

But what ALSO came out during the Mike Brown shooting is that there was no gunshot residue on his body, implying there was considerable distance between him and the cop when he was shot. The same is obviously true in the shooting of Kajieme Powell, who was more than a couple yards away when shot. So I’ve heard all about Mike Brown being shot from the front, but eerie silence about the distance between him and Darren Wilson when Wilson shot him. Isn’t it all just then calculated on selective details coming out afterward, to justify it all?

We have to realize: the fate of our government’s integrity (and the power of white supremacy in general) lies in this data. And we are waiting on vested powers to trickle out information to us. It is ludicrous to think we will get a truthful answer when so much is on the line.

GRAPHIC: St Louis police officer shoots Kajieme Powell

The fucking video game cops in GTA aren’t this trigger happy. The dude stole TWO. SODAS. and they came at him like he was Rambo, like he’d already killed a slew of people or something. Let’s think about this for a second. 

This is the case that is (erroneously) being called “suicide by cop”, the same story that is prompting public officials to assess whether this is a viable concept and whether police should be held accountable for “suicidal” actions of their shooting victims. 

Let’s step back and call this what it is: fucking bullshit. The idea that some Keystone cops should EVER be taken as mental health professionals is beyond insane. It’s solely useful as justification for extrajudicial murder. You CANNOT say that those two officers, in the ten seconds of interaction they had with Kajieme Powell, could correctly determine his mental state or his intentions. 

Moreover, this is a few miles from Ferguson, where there is a full-on revolt against the police state that murdered Michael Brown. What police here are calling “erratic” looks to me like an act of civil disobedience against murderous police who overreact to petty theft. It isn’t hard to connect the two and see this as a clear statement, especially when he yells, “Shoot me!” He stole two sodas. That was the breadth and depth of his crimes. This was a test of the STL police that ended in his death. I don’t even think he expected them to do it. I think he was trying to make a statement and instead, the worst of his suspicions was proved right. He was given the ultimate punishment in a matter of seconds, over nothing.

Lately every post on my dash feels vitally important, like the shit is coming down. And I’m realizing the repression is mostly the same it’s always been. People just aren’t taking it anymore. More and more people are done with the bullshit. The endless stories of injustice towards black people, most especially, are becoming droplets of fuel in a literal fire that isn’t going anywhere. It’s just going to grow and grow. Because there is no reversal of this genocide. It’s what this country was founded upon. An America without black genocide isn’t America at all. We’re about to be reborn.

Welcome to Passive, New York
As Andy Henriquez, a 19 year old from Washington Heights lay in his cell dying from a tear in his aorta, an artery that supplies blood to the heart, he asked a guard if he could call his mother just to say goodbye. For days he suffered in pain barely able to breathe as the blood made its way down to his groin. He request was denied. His fellow inmates knew something was wrong. They screamed and kicked doors in a failed bid to get Andy some help.  A doctor who visited him earlier that day prescribed him hand cream and wrote the prescription in the wrong name.
Hours later he was found dead on the floor of his cell.
This happened in April of last year, New Yorkers are just hearing about it today because a suit has been filed by the lawyer of Mr. Henriquez’s family.
In this last year I have been thinking about some things….
I have thought about the death of Eric Garner and the muted outrage that followed.
I have thought about all the black men who were set up by Detective Louis Scarcella from Brooklyn, who have languished in jail for years and are just now having their cases reviewed after it was discovered Scarcella was crooked and the silence that followed.
I have thought about how everyone just accepts that Stop and Frisk is a thing of the past and that the rights of black and brown men here in New York City are not still being violated.
I have thought about how slick it was for our Mayor to parade his black family in front of the cameras to get elected and how New Yorkers have yet to check him for basically being Bloomberg 2.0.
I have thought about those who live in the projects whose stewards, NYCHA, last year said they had a surplus of money to fix them and are now saying this year they have no money.
I have thought about how “affordable housing” here means you must make damn near 100k, yet no one seems to believe that this city hates its poor.
I have thought about the fact that this city has the highest rates of workplace discrimination lawsuits in the country, yet no one wants to address racism in the workplace.
I have thought about how gentrification of this city has made many neighborhoods I once loved and enjoyed unrecognizable and in my view turned its residents into the quietest, softest, most passive lot of New Yorkers I have ever experienced in my lifetime here.
Who the fuck are you people?
There will be very little outrage over Mr. Henriquez’s death. This lot of New Yorkers would be more outraged if you kicked a cat than if you choked a young black man to death or allowed one to internally bleed to death on the floor of a jail cell.

Two ways of dealing with tear gas grenades from comrades in Turkey: Either submerge them in water. Make sure you can close off the container cause the gas will still spread for a while. Or throw them in the fire so the gas burns off before it can spread.
