America: Coppers gone Wild

Let’s cut to the chase.
Eric Garner. Mike Brown, Sean Bell… Flashback. Amadou Diallo…. #involuntary Martyrdom.

I don’t think the brutality and excessive force even on to the point of death is a new phenomenon.

2 factors are contributing to the outburst in frequency of these events: One, the ubiquity of cell phone cameras. No one needs a jury these days. If you look long enough someone filmed it.
Secondly, the social media age has made the world a much smaller place. Not only most things don’t go ununnoticed, they get noticed rather quickly. For example, #Ferguson is as big as Ukraine and Iraq depending on the news channels you indulge in.

The formula in those specific events often goes as follow:
subject: Police.
Violent Verb: [insert Euphemism]
Object : Unarmed Black _______

I will explore this in my next blog post but hear me out: America’s relationship with the black community has been a nuptial where only one of the parties said “I do”…[unlike any other of America’s spouses]. Needless to say, in forced, arranged marriages, physical abuse is often inevitable.

The Jews in Egypt went through something similar. How did they get around it? Exodus. Tinkering thoughts….
