The UNITED STATES Department of Justice shared its investigative report on the town of Ferguson last week.
Folks RESIGNING and any FIRINGS is NOT good enough, nor is it JUST! It sends a message that their actions are still acceptable, only if they aren’t EXPOSED.
And once they get EXPOSED for their acts of racism, extortion, racketeering, etc, they become a few sacrificial lambs from the herd, and move on to another institution that practices the same SYSTEMIC RACISM, HATE, WHITE PRIVILEGE. The laws don’t apply to these folks, just the NON-WHITE FOLKS.
Black citizens in Ferguson were terrorized continuously with illegal arrests, bogus fines & caused incredible pain to poor families and then officials laughed about them not being able to hold jobs.
Ferguson official on President Obama: ‘What black man holds a steady job for four years’.
Ferguson police terrorized, abused the black community for years & then gassed them for grieving a child who had been shot down in the street. The abuse from the Ferguson pd is so horrid, so disturbing, that firing a few officers won’t cut it. Too much damage done. The entire department needs to be disbanded and start new so healing can begin. The Ferguson officials who engaged in racketeering & extortion need to be jailed. The law is the law!
rikyrah here: You know, one of the main reasons why folks hate the Federal Government, when it works for people, is that the Feds usually just bring in ‘the facts’. Cold. Hard. Brutal. It’s the facts that back up what every Black person in Ferguson already knew – they were targeted, and they were being bled dry by that Police Department, which didn’t want to serve them, but saw them as cash cows.
When the facts are laid out about the statistics, they can pretend all they want, but it’s there, plain and bare for the world to see how the Black population was abused and misused by this Police Department. Some of the stories are simply unreal, but, true. Arrested for sitting in YOUR Car, after a long time exercising. Arrested for walking down the street wrong. Explain to me how one walks down the street wrong? Arrested in your own driveway. Arrested for just sitting in a public place. These people were victimized for Existing While Black.
ARRESTS need to be made against the racketeering, extortionist, racist FERGUSON PD & TOWN LEADERSHIP!
