|Another fatal police shooting in King County, Washington. Giovonn Joseph-McDade was killed by Des Moines Police after a police chase.|
The death of an unarmed motorist at the hands of law enforcement has sparked discussion once again about police brutality and gun violence.
Say it time after time, and I think I should get this trademarked.
GUN VIOLENCE IS THE NUMBER ONE THREAT IN THE UNITED STATES.
FOR EVERY BAD COP, THERE WILL BE A DEAD COP.
ENOUGH WITH THE THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS.
DO SOMETHING ABOUT GUN VIOLENCE.
DONALD J. TRUMP AND CONGRESS ARE NUMB AND INEPT TO GUN VIOLENCE.
THE NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION IS A PRO-GUN, PRO-WHITE AND PRO-STUPID ORGANIZATION. THEY RAKE IN MILLIONS PROMOTING THIS "US AGAINST THEM" AGENDA. THE NRA ALONG WITH CONGRESS CONTINUE TO ALLOW FIREARMS IN THE HANDS OF TERRORISTS.
AND BAD COPS AS WELL.
Again in King County, Washington, another person loses his life to a fatal police shooting.
Giovonn Joseph-McDade a 20 year old college student was shot and killed by a Kent, Washington, police officer after a traffic stop in June.
This shooting was ignored because the nation was focused on the death of Charleena Lyles, another woman from King County, Washington by the way of Seattle being shot and killed after she called the law to report a crime.
Also a few days later, Tommy Le was gunned down after the law thought he was carrying a dangerous weapon. Turns out to be a pen.
All three of these individuals were people of color and they died because of police officer's "split decision" to use deadly force.
McDade was student at Green River College. He was stopped for a minor offense of switching plates.
Des Moines Police claim that McDade was trying to flee and elude police. They claim the vehicle he was driving is a high target for car thief.
McDade was driving a Honda Accord, described by the law as "the most common vehicle stolen in the state of Washington state."
The law claimed that McDade fled from the law. They described it as a "felony fleeing and eluding."
They chased McDade into a dead end of a residential neighborhood. According to the officers, he would proceed to accelerate the vehicle and try to ram the police cars. That's when the officers fired on McDade and his passenger Devonte Cheeks.
Two bullets hit Giovonn and he was instantly killed.
They claimed that he had a few grams of methamphetamine and marijuana on him.
Again, trying to justify a deadly shooting by claiming that the person the police shot was on drugs.
With political tensions at its worst, police officers are being stretched to a breaking point. Police officers are now trying to be cautious about using deadly force.
Oftentimes, Black people are told to obey an officer's order. Still gets us killed.
We are told to be fathers of children, members of society and mentors to Black America. Often, the police kill those fathers. They destroy that member of society who had a job, a career, and a future.
How can you mentor Black America, when our fathers tell us to be wary of the police.
Always trust your gut instinct and never allow yourself to be a victim.
We legally obtain firearms. But according to Donald J. Trump, Republicans, conservatives, and the NRA, we're a threat. They want to take away the 2nd Amendment from Blacks, Brown and Mulims. They want to ban foreigners because they fear a Browner nation. They want to keep us on watch but refuse to watch their own.
Police shootings of an unarmed people of color has become a fodder for Black Lives Matter and civil rights leaders.
I highly doubt the Congress will get the ball rolling on police brutality.
And I assure that cops will get good attorneys, the police union and the backing of sympathetic junk food media agitators willing to see the cop's side. After all, the person they shot and killed has no value in the courtroom. He is dead.
