It was reported today that the gunmen was actually a teenager, around age sixteen. I think this makes the seventh police shooting in Philly in the last two months. Just a total lack of respect for authority coming from these assailants. The yound man who killed officer Cassidy two weeks ago here, was only 21 years old. His mother is a corrections officer, and it is believed that he took her gun to commit the crime. After shooting the officer dead, he reached over and took the dead officers gun. The whole thing was caught on video tape. He was caught a few days later in a homeless shelter in Miami.

Philly has a new Mayor elect, Michael Nutter, the third black Mayor of the city. He is definitely law enforcement minded, and say's he will impose stricter enforcement of gun laws.

I work with a couple of former Philly police officers, they are expecting things to get worst with the relationship between cops and the urban communities where these shootings are happening. Philly is now considered the worst large city in the country, but there are quite a few other contenders including Baltimore, New Orleans and Detroit.

I would dare to say it's about the same lack of respect that a lot of police officers have for our young black men & women. That would mean it's a Reaction and not an action.
And no, I'm not condoning the violence..........I just understand it.

Well, all I can say is that the "powers that be" have been warned over and over.

You (no one) can continue to oppress someone and not expect that at some point, they are going to fight back.

As I see it, those youth are DO!ing what they have been taught to DO.

I remember working with a young man of Afreekan descent during the start of the war in iraq. He was 9 yrs. old and he said to me "they lie, they tell us not to fight back when someone attacks you but bush and em going to war, fighting back". Those were not his exact words, yet, it is close enough for one to get the point of his argument and his recognition.

He would also frequently complain that his mother would say one thing yet do another. Like, "she doesn't respect me, so why should I respect her"

And, he was RIGHT, in the sense that there were some injustices being practiced by his mother who was extremely depressed and overwhelmed in her life and community.

The primary point being tho, at some point, people are going to fight back. Afreekan Descendents have been patiently attempting to "work" this shystem, have been holding back their "feelings" and attempting to address problems in a "civilized" manner. All to no avail when it comes to any change in the behaviors of those in power. They set the rules and standards and all must follow regardless of the impact those standards have on the people.

They love to tell us.."well, if you don't like amerikkka as is, you can leave". Yet, they forget that they have made that next to impossible as well. Thanks to Colonization of Afreekan lands and the minds of AFreekans on the Continent, that is a major barrier in place.

So...things are likely to get worse.

We did a warn dem (Tanya Stephens) I think I have the words to this song written out and will post it if anyone is interested..in fact, I think I did a post with part of the words in it.

It's a very sad reality as I am not interested in more blood shed nor incarceration of our men, yet, "a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do" and the foot is coming up off of us ...one way or the other.

Let's keep in mind that these are human beings with love one's like the rest of us. Police officers are not your oppressors. Usually, when you see a police officer in the black community, it's because a crime has been committed by one black person against another black person. The victim is usually the one who summons the police. So who is the oppressor, if there is such a thing? Is it the person who called the police, the assailant or the police officer who was summoned, and who is paid to maintain the peace?

For those of you who have no respect for the policemen who are shot in the line of duty, keep in mind that these "punks" will shoot you too, and probably even quicker than they would an officer of the law. That is because there is nothing black about them except their skin and their hearts.
