Michael Brown and now Eric Garner, both unarmed African American men openly murdered by White policemen, followed with no indictment of the policemen who perpetrated the killings. I am outraged!!!
Recently there was 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida, 22-year-old John Crawford, III in Beavercreek, Ohio and 12-year-old Tamir Rice in Cleveland, Ohio, all unarmed young African American men or boys unnecessarily shot down, murdered, in cold blood by policemen who’s mission it is to serve and protect the public. When will it stop?
I continue to urge those of us who are rightfully angry to maintain the discipline of non-violent protest and engage in the effective use of non-violent direct action. This wrongful inaction by a New York grand jury, along with a Bob McCullough manipulated and perverted St. Louis County grand jury clearly reveals an American judicial system in crisis. We must march, protest, boycott and vote about our anger.
Mad about it – march and protest about it. Mad about – demonstrate about it. Mad about it – boycott and withhold your money about it. Mad about it – vote about it! That is the most effective way to change this unjust situation.
