Other Issues in the Ferguson/Mike Brown/Darren Wilson Tragedy

I agree that race is involved in these kinds of cases. However, race is not involved in all of these cases.

The Police kill White people as well.

Black Cops kill non-Black citizens. Are those shootings affected by race? I couldn’t say.

I’m not saying that race is not AN important issue in the MB shooting.

I’m saying that it is but one issue.

Another important issue is the total lack of police accountability (aka qualified immunity). That’s an important one as well. Police can shoot the wrong guy in the wrong place at the wrong time for the wrong reasons BUT simply because the Cop felt threatened can get away with murder.

A Cop can literally walk into a Citizens house with intent to take anything he wishes and shoot the owner. The Cop can say that he smelled marijuana giving him probable cause. The Cop can shoot the Citizen who confronts him and claim that he felt threatened…that his life was in danger. The Cop can take a kitchen knife out of the Citizens kitchen drawer and lay it at the side of the Citizen.

This is a plausible scenario.

Cops have and do plant evidence.

Cops have and do enact character assassination.

Cops have and will shoot just about anyone.

Yes, race is an issue. Yes, race is an important issue. However, race is not the only issue.

If they take the rights of all Citizens away by destroying the US Constitution, race won’t matter a wit.

Everyone will be oppressed.

Darren Wilson ultimately shot a teenager for being in the middle of the street.

Brown probably attacked him. Brown may or may not have had his hands up.

How did it come to pass that Brown attacked Officer Wilson? How did Wilson put himself in position to be attacked? How did the situation escalate? Did Officer Wilson aggravate the situation? What did Officer Wilson say or do, if anything, that enraged Mike Brown enough so as to commit what amounts to a suicidal act in America (violent confrontation with Police forces)? These are important questions as well.

American Police Are Wrong. The Mike Brown Incident is a tale of Police Incompetence and complete loss of the Public Trust


Brown’s blood found in Darren Wilson’s car, evidence doesn’t support civil rights charges, so NOW WHAT?

I have maintained since the beginning of this lunacy that this whole incident was caused by poor training.

1. “Get the fuck out of the street” is not a proper way for a “Public Servant” to speak to citizens.

2. How does an interaction between a Police Officer and a Citizen escalate from a request for a teenager to vacate a low traffic street to a shooting?

3. How does a Police Officer become the victim of a car attack from an 18 year old citizen?

4. Why do so many incidents between Police Officers and younger citizens escalate to shootings?

5. Why are Police trained to shoot to kill? Why is shoot to kill a first option for any Police Officer?

6. There are so many incidents of corrupt Police Officers across the US that it is inevitable that the Police are distrusted and that Citizens on the margin will react to the Police as if they will either be shot or treated in an unjust manner.

There are so many issues with today’s Police that it is a wonder that Citizens aren’t shooting first when Police come upon the scene of an incident.

SWAT teams are only 33% successful in finding any criminality. The rate of failure should make America’s Leaders re-think their options and actions. However, it seems that the Police and the Leaders of American Cities and other localities only re-trench and continue to treat Americans as if the Citizenry is the enemy.

As long as the Police view the populace as the enemy and America as a Warzone, as evidenced by SWAT teams, tactical gear and attitudes of Police, these escalated incidents of violence will continue to increase.

This needs to be halted. The American police and other civil leaders and politicians need to re-evaluate their attitudes and tactics in dealing with crime and the American citizenry.

The Media needs to highlight these actions and work to resolve this challenge to American Liberty.

It should not matter if a Citizen is shot or otherwise injured. Injustice is injustice. When Police restrict or completely ignore the Law and the Constitution and these actions are upheld by the Courts, America has lost LIberty. All of us lose. This isn’t merely a case of criminals or thugs losing Liberty. The is a loss of liberty for the whole of the American citizenry.

We must put a stop to injustice for all Americans.

Bottom line:  Mike Brown may well have been a thug. That matters not. The Police, in general, and Darren Wilson, specifically, are acting no better than Statist Thugs constantly. We cannot trust the American Police to do the right thing. As long as this is the case, Police will be distrusted and will not be deserving of the Public Trust.

After all, Kanye West is a complete buffoon. That doesn’t mean that he deserves to be executed by State Thugs.
