The human world makes me want to fucking scream at the top of my lungs. Are laws not meant to protect people? Are those submitted to correctional facilities not granted an opportunity to correct themselves? Then what are they if not correctional? (Labor camps?)
I cannot fucking believe a woman is facing SEVEN YEARS of her life behind bars in a cage, unable to return to her family and friends and peers, simply because she jerked her elbow to stop a cop from continuing to grab her breast. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?! TO SERVE AND PROTECT?! THE ONLY PERSON BEING PROTECTED IS THE ONE THAT WAS GROPING THE VICTIM. This does not make me feel safe and I do not feel protected. That’s Cecily Brown’s case, but at the same time, Kwadir Felton’s case is still going and he’s facing LIFE IN PRISON because AFTER THE POLICE SHOT HIM AND LEFT HIM COMPLETELY AND PERMANENTLY BLIND they continue to forge the story that Kwadir pulled a gun first EVEN THOUGH HE WAS UNARMED AND THERE WAS NO GUN AT THE SCENE.
How can you justify any of this? These are REAL people with people that love them very much and the system we trust so much to represent us is throwing them in a cage for 7 years to life. Can you even FATHOM being in a cell for that long (because the system would rather protect police officers than admit they’ve done wrong)? And for nothing at that?
I think I’m going to be physically ill. Please keep the victims of the United States in mind with you, both foreign and domestic. We are all brothers and sisters, and we owe our being to the planet and not the governing of politicos. Please, please keep them in your thoughts.
Through solidarity we will achieve victory.
