Rapper Killer Mike gives impassioned speech during Atlanta protests
In the book Helter Skelter, LA prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi, (born in Hibbing MN, I once dated his much younger cousin, lol), describes that Charles Manson planned the horrible murders, and the blood painted messages on the walls were intended to start a race war.
Manson even bragged about how he got his cult followers to do it for him.
We should ALL be appalled that our officers who vow to "Protect and Serve" are killing our citizens.
We should also understand that white supremacist crazy cults are capable of anything, to stoke the flames.
We need our Governors, Mayors, and Police Chiefs to have a sit down together with community leaders to devise appropriate training for interaction with the public, and also have any officer that behaves inappropriately be removed from the force at once. Officer Chauvin, it turns out, had numerous bad incidents, but the blue code of loyalty *and the police union, protected him.
That was a very emotional and eloquent speech, thank you for posting that.
BTW, my daughter and her roommates each have an emergency bag packed, in case they feel the need to suddenly evacuate. That's what is has come down to, that's how people feel.
Some of her friends living in south Minneapolis have already left their homes to stay elsewhere, some are staying to defend their homes, if necessary. Who knows which is the right decision?
It is so sad that all this distracts from the true tragedy of the murder of Mr. Floyd, and has morphed into a tragedy of its own.
