The TRUTH About Police Killings: It's About Time It's Stopped, Now.
RACE Is Still The Most Explosive Element in America - The Names Rodney King, Trayvon Martin and Now, Michael Brown Are Added to a Much Longer List of Young Black Men Who Have Experienced Violence That Triggered a Swift Reaction Across America.
Lets Face It, White People Are Killed and Beaten Too. Is it That Whites Are Less Volatile Than Blacks When It Comes to Killings of Blacks or Whites? In The Case of Blacks in America, it Certainly Helps to Have a Jessie Jackson or Reverend Al Sharpton to Quickly Join the Local Community Leaders Whenever and Where Ever Warranted. That's a Card that White People Don't Seem to Have or Know How to Use.
On Sunday Minister Louis Farrahkan Spoke About Michael Brown's Killing, President Obama Cut His Summer Vacation Short to Weigh in on the Situation - Dispatching Attorney General Eric Holder to Investigate and Now Governor Jay Nixon of Missouri Has Called For ‘Vigorous Prosecution’ Of Darren Wilson, the Police Officer Who Shot the Unarmed Youth Six Times.
What Would It take for Governor Herbert of Utah to Speak Out About the Recent Police Killing of an Unarmed Non-Black Youth in Salt Lake City last Week? The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Certainly Could Say Something. So Far, Only Grassroots Groups and Individuals Are Leading Charge.
The Time is Now, To Come Together - Blacks, Whites and Mixed Races - to Hold the Government Accountable. Perhaps, the Utah Chapter of the National Liberty Alliance Will Begin Indicting Public Officials Who Fail to Protect and Serve the People - Blacks, Whites and Mix Races.
