Racial Profiling in North Carolina

Upon posting the following article to my Facebook wall, a debate ensued…

Police Victim, DeShawn Currie

Black Teen With White Parents Mistaken For Burglar, Assaulted By Cops In His Own Home:

(FreeThoughtProject) A North Carolina teen was recently assaulted and pepper sprayed by police in his own home, after he was mistaken for a burglar.  18-year-old DeShawn Currie has been living with foster parents Ricky and Stacy Tyler in Wake County, North Carolina for about a year.

The Tylers love DeShawn as their own son and they have taken him into their home, in hopes to provide him the safe and loving environment that he needs to thrive in the most important years of his life.

Unfortunately, some of the Tyler’s neighbors were not familiar with the family dynamics of the home, and decided to call the police to report a burglary when they saw the young man entering his home after school one day.  DeShawn did not climb through a window or struggle to get inside, but simply walked through the unlocked door of the home.  The only thing that actually made his neighbors suspicious, was the color of his skin.

Stacie G.I’m not worried about criminals. I lock my door behind me to keep the police out.

Aspie Portugalwait? they are right…it’s not common 2 white people with black sons…they could not let the house be robbed just with fear of seeming racist. The thing was solved, he was not accused of anything so what is the problem?

RaynAspie Portugal, the cops are wrong. They falsely accused this youth of burglarizing his own house simply because he returned from school, and walked through his unlocked front door. Then, even after the young man explained that the home was, in fact, his residence, the cops just dismissed him as a liar, noting that his brown skin did not match the pale-skinned pictures on the wall. Police then PEPPER-SPRAYED THE YOUNG MAN IN THE FACE – all for the non-crime of entering his home! As the story reveals, the youth was not even close to afforded the right of innocence until proven guilty, and no legitimate investigation was taken on by police before they eagerly deployed tax-funded State violence as the solution to this non-situation.

Basically, this young man was racially profiled by neighbors, then by the police, all while falsely accused of criminal activity, only to be assaulted by State agents with chemical weaponry… AND, HE WAS COMPLETELY INNOCENT!

You call that “solved”? And, you claim that the youth was “not accused of anything”? These statements are completely inaccurate. Please re-read the story above more carefully if you want to understand, “what is the problem?”

In the Past Two Weeks, Israel’s Government Has Massacred Nearly 600 Gazan Civilians, Because… Terrorism!

Latest Gazan Fatalities, according to United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), as reported by their Facebook page, here

According to the latest figures from the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), Israeli military forces have killed an estimated 789 Gazans since their July 7th launch of Operation “Protective Edge.” About 73% of this total represents civilian casualties. In other words, approximately 578 civilians have been murdered by Israel’s government so far, with about 185 of that total being children, and 93 being women, which together represent 48% of all civilian deaths…

United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs – Gaza Crisis:

Sadly, these numbers reveal that the world’s “Most Moral Army” has snuffed out the lives of more children than it has killed Hamas “militants” in its latest war-criminal adventures inside Gaza! Gazan youths represent about one quarter of the Israeli governments total killings, and almost one third of their total civilian murder victims!

Israel’s Gaza Offensive Has Killed Child Every Hour for Two Days:

Israel’s government is executing a full-scale massacre of purely cowardly proportions – to the welcoming cheers of celebrating Israeli audiences, in some cases!

Beware of Pro-Government Extremists With Badges!

As I scrolled the Facebook wall of TRUTHgasm, I discovered the following artwork here

“Remember, without government… there would be chaos!”

My Commentary: No joke. When PRO-government extremists terrorize our communities, we actually call it “law enforcement”…

What up, Stockholm Syndrome?

Power-Hungry Senator Proposes Licensing for Bicycle “Operators”

“Licensed Cyclists Only”

State Senator Proposes to ID Bicycle “Operators”:

(Scott Roberts, Freedom Foundation) For the past few years, the Freedom Foundation has published our “Big Spenders” list. As a result of I-960, the Office of Financial Management is required to calculate the 10-year cost of any bill that proposes a new tax or a new fee. We then take all the bill sponsors and add up these projected costs, and publish a rank-ordered list. It’s informative for taxpayers to know which legislators propose bills that increase the cost of government and legislators who don’t.

It’s stunning how much government growth—at the expense of taxpayers—is proposed by some legislators.

I’m heading up the project this year, so lately I’ve been up to my ears wading through bills from this past session. I have to give credit to Anne Marie Gurney, our ace research analyst for digging up this bill information. It’s Senate Bill 6301, and it proposes to license bicycle “operators”.

(Read entire article here…)

My CommentaryAccording to the article, “the Senator says this bill was proposed because of constituent complaints about cyclists who were a traffic nuisance and who were urinating in people’s yards–and identification numbers are needed to file complaints with the authorities.”

Good thing that the complaints weren’t against pedestrians, eh?

No matter how peaceful our behavior is, the government always eventually creates some sort of pretext to interject itself into the equation as our Accuser, turned Gatekeeper, on the matter (but, of course). We are being branded guilty until proven innocent with every single oppressive measure like this that is even suggested, let alone passed! Every new law makes a new crime – or, should I say “pre-crime,” in cases like this (just like so many others)! Meanwhile, the prisons continue to overflow with more and more Individuals convicted of VICTIMLESS OFFENSES!

These professionally-lying, morally-bankrupt, sociopathic so-called “representatives” are slowly but surely criminalizing our humanity, while legalizing their criminality, right before our very eyes! Wake up and smell the tyranny!

Cops: What We Think They Do, and What They Actually Do…

Upon posting the following picture from Cop Block‘s Facebook page onto my own wall, a debate ensued…

Cops. What my friends think I do, What sympathizers think I do, What kids think I do, What society thinks I do, What I want to do, What I actually do

Murlo N.The problem is not the police itself, the problem is the people who join the police, there are lots of people out there who are corrupt and violent and evil, and some of these people join the police. It is not the police that is the problem, it is the bad people within the police who are the problem. There is no such thing as an evil institution, there are only evil people inside the institutions who corrupt the institutions.

RaynIn the US, the problem is both the institution, *and* the individual, working together. To begin, as agents of the State, police officers are literally hired, trained and paid to initiate force against, and extort money from, peaceful citizens for victimless “crimes.” The “War on Drugs” serves as a perfect example of this, and truly stands out, right in plain view, as a form of State-instituted Cultural genocide - with daily kidnappings, beatings, murders, imprisonments, rapes, tortures, and forced medical procedures to prove it! To wear the police uniform is to wear the guilt of this ongoing atrocity against humanity. Yet, to even seek out the uniform while being fully aware that police have been, and currently are, engaging in a nationwide “War on Drugs” is also absolutely evidence of individual guilt, too.

Secondly, entire police departments have been exposed time and time again for enforcing rights-violating ticket quotas against citizens as a matter of top-down policy, as well as enacting racist, harassing, guilty-until-proven-innocent-based “stop and frisk” practices, also ordered from the top- down, against communities. Yet again, these are more institutional policies, and once again, they are being willfully enacted by individuals, as well…

Finally, if and when police do get caught engaging in outright criminal activity while on duty, most receive the full and immediate support of their entire department, along with undue time and opportunity to collaborate with each other and review their own evidence before making official statements. And, if they are even investigated after those efforts, it is by none other than more members of the police force, along with various other agents of the State… And, if all of these justice-obstructing activities and agents don’t keep them from the courthouse, then the judicial branch swoops in to dutifully shield these criminal cops from as much responsibility, accountability, and repercussions as possible, whenever possible!
