Don't Believe Your Lying Eyes

|

Last night I went to bed working on a story about the Minnesota and Baton Rouge shootings and woke up to the Dallas mayhem. While I knew one had been killed and one had been shot, I really felt like this morning it would have been over.  Nope!  I wake up to 5 dead policemen and 7 wounded with the killer blown up by the Dallas Policemen detonating a bomb.  You can't make this stuff up.  It's damn near like a mini movie. 

When we saw Rodney King get beat down, he was compensated for the behavior of the police officers, but only because of video. Now that we have video readily available to any John Doe, it has be become increasingly discounted by the media and judicial system as if we didn't see what we saw.  They immediately begin to break down not what we saw but why the alleged victim deserved to die and then why the officer deserves to go home. And of course, at the end of the day, the police officer is exonerated.

We have seen it over and over and over again, the image of a police officer killing a black man or woman without just cause.  We have seen time and time again an officer of the law released of accountability by our judicial system.  So for me, it is up to our judges and district attorneys to hold these police officers accountable.  Until an officer of the law is held to the same standard as the one they are protecting, there will be no accountability.  

So we as Black men all talk about what we could do, would do and should do but the reality is what we want to do, we shouldn't do. That's why we believe in the Constitution and in our rights bestowed upon us by this document.

So I am absolutely sure that no one is surprised of the outcome in Dallas.  No one is surprised that a black man or men have taken justice into their own hands.  No one is surprised that the NRA has nothing to say.  No one is surprised that Congress will still do nothing.  No one is surprised!  But my heart bleeds for all the victims involved and their families.  This just cannot continue.  This is precisely why I want my readers to continue to look at the video of the white man kicking the ass of the policemen, yet he is handled like precious cargo.  

America, we don't need weapons of mass destruction to bring attention to our plight but the law allows us to have them, so ironically, gun owners are going to use them.  As a gun owner and licensed concealed weapon owner, I encourage all potential gun owners to get a license. And while it did not protect Philando Castile of Minnesota, it may be the one thing to help convict the police officer, if he is guilty of murder.  

And lastly, I originally started out to make the point that of all the videos we have seen of police killing black men or children, most of us were convinced that they were all guilty.  But of course, we can't believe our lying eyes.  I pray we ask God for vision, His vision, and that we see our way through this mayhem and that God heals the souls of all our people.  America, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
