A Point of Orientation for Right Now:
In the past few days, in the face of yet more new and awful videos documenting the real role and behavior of the police, people have once again begun to rise up righteously. Despite an incident in Dallas in which five police were killed, THIS PROTEST MUST CONTINUE AND INTENSIFY AND PEOPLE MUST CONTINUE TO SEEK THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM AND ITS SOLUTION.
Families Speak Out On Police Murder of Alton Sterling:
Statement from Pamela Fields, mother of Donte Jordan,
killed by Long Beach Police on November 10, 2013
That man, Alton Sterling, was down - no threat at all.
We ALL need to get involved and do something. We need
numbers and our demand is THIS MUST STOP! Enough is
enough. I'm angry and mad. Another mother sharing my
pain. There is no way this shit should still be happening.
Video after video after video...and they "investigate"
themselves, put cops on paid vacation and throw money
at families to shut us up. NO! Something has to happen
and quick. There is more of us than them... let's put our
boots on the ground and let's make it happen!
