|Events in Ferguson and St. Louis continue to illustrate the American Experiment is nearly extinguished|
Activists connected to the Leadership Coalition for Justice (formerly called the Justice for Mike Brown Leadership Coalition) and the African People’s Socialist Party announced Friday that they are convening a symbolic grand jury in January to decide for themselves whether former Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson should be charged with a crime for killing Michael Brown.
The group organizing the symbolic grand jury is called the International People's Democratic Uhuru Movement, a group that seeks to liberate and empower people of African descent around the world.
“In the face of the inability of the justice system to work for our people and our community, in the face of the grand jury’s inability to see what the whole world has been able to see about the murder of Mike Brown on August 9th … clearly it is time for African people to begin to take matters in our own hands,” said African People’s Socialist Party leader Omali Yeshitela. “In that regard I’m here to announce that on January 3rd and 4th black people will have our own grand jury.”
According to Yeshitela, the grand jury will be selected based on their reputations as upstanding members of the community and will make their decision following existing laws after being presented with the same evidence and testimony given to the official grand jury.
But, said Yeshitela, the “Black People’s Grand Jury” will be open to the public and will look at the death of Brown in context of “the history of black people in this county, in this country, and see whether or not it is likely that Darren Wilson or any instrument of state power in this country would murder an 18-year-old unarmed teenager.”
When asked about the goal of this grand jury, given that it will have no power to arrest or discipline Wilson, Yeshitela said that highlighting that lack of power was the whole point.
Yeshitela was joined Friday by Kennethia Miller and two other St. Louis women affiliated with Yeshitela’s Uhuru Movement, which seeks (among other things) to put black people in charge of the hiring of police in communities where mostly black people live.
“We think it’s extremely urgent that we hold the black people’s grand jury and build a campaign for black community control of the police,” Miller said. “As a mother, I’m outraged and deeply concerned about the ongoing law enforcement-based violence that’s taken the lives of our children.”St. Louis averages roughly 33 firearms-related incidents each week [Outrage after bloody night in St. Louis leaves 18 shot, one stabbed, St. Louis Post Dispatch, 6-11-2013], with the nearly all of these shootings involving a black suspect. Miller isn't outraged or deeply concerned by these 1,716 firearm-related incidents that occur every year, which are instrumental in driving down property value and convincing the new owners of Budweiser - InBev - to completely divest from the city of St. Louis.
After the hostile takeover of the King of Beers in 2008, InBev cut roughly six percent of Budweiser's workforce, a harbinger of the company moving all of the operations out of St. Louis. Only days ago, InBev announced Budweiser U.S. Sales and Marketing would move to New York City, a much more accessible (and safer) city than St. Louis.
Remember: Just as 83 percent black Detroit has few corporations providing tax-revenue (as well as a minority of property-owners actually paying their property taxes), a Budweiser-less St. Louis will be reliant on a majority black population to provide the taxes to fund the public payroll and bankroll civic improvements...
Not to mention, the promise of pensions for those retired public employees evaporating as the new black majority can no longer sustain a first-world economy once taken for granted of when middle-class whites built and maintained it (the Visible Black Hand of Economics never fails to appear).
With the black population exclusively working to make St. Louis uninhabitable for the law-abiding (and eroding the opportunity for corporate growth - or chances of corporate relocation - in the city), no one should lament the call for a new, all-black grand jury.
Whatever outcome these black boobs deliberate upon, their findings will have no legal bearing on the case; however, no amount of evidence would ever convince them the actions taken by Officer Darren Wilson on August 9, 2014 represented the correct one.
From a purely racialistic (instead of legalistic) line of reasoning, they've already castigated Officer Wilson for the crime of murder their black comrade Michael Brown, damn the evidence!
Moments such as this [African-American grand jury to examine evidence in the Michael Brown shooting, Fox2Now, 12-12-14] represent a window into the future; a world where the evolution of Anglo-Saxon law (Magna Carta, English Common Law, the Bill or Rights, Habeas Corpus, etc.) devolves to the law of the jungle.
Because the law of the jungle quickly mandates tribes form for protection, so civilization can slowly be introduced to an area where it has all but disappeared. [St. Louis police say they'll discipline officer who wore 'Wilson' name tag at City Hall protest, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 12-13-14]:
A city police officer stationed at City Hall when protesters showed up Friday to protest police brutality drew the attention of demonstrators because the officer wore a “Wilson” name tag on his sleeve in a show of solidarity with former Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson.
Now that officer also has his department’s attention.
In an interview Friday, Chief Sam Dotson said the “officer clearly violated our policies and will be disciplined.”
“I couldn’t be more disappointed,” Dotson said. “We spend a lot of time working on professionalism and building a bridge in the community.”
Jeff Roorda, business manager for the St. Louis Police Officers’ Association, said the officer at issue was transferred Friday from
District 3 to District 6, which Roorda said has the highest crime in the city.
“For months, the U.S. Department of Justice has been calling violent protests where officers were shot at and had Molotov cocktails thrown at them ‘constitutionally protected exercises of freedom of speech, freedom of assembly and freedom of expression,’” Roorda said.
“Now a police officer does nothing more than wear another officer’s name on his sleeve, an officer who has been exonerated of any wrongdoing, and is being told that his passive statement is constitutionally prohibited free speech. There is something wrong with this picture.”Oh, there is something incredible wrong with the picture of Ferguson, St. Louis, Missouri, and the United States of America in 2014.
Very, very wrong: That white police officers would still talk about building a bridge to the "community" (black community) and not completely abandon the task of trying to bring law and order to a people more inclined to practice the art of "no snitching" in protecting their criminals.
Never, ever stand in the way of those making hilarious demands for racially-exclusive courts, for it's only a positive step in the direction of racial separation.
