    We may never really know what happened in the three minutes between when Michael Brown was stopped for jaywalking and when he was shot and killed by Officer Darren Wilson.

    But we do know what happened on Tuesday during the 23 seconds between when St. Louis police arrived and when 25-year-old Kajieme Powell was shot and killed on Riverview Blvd. We know because police released the video. Powell walks around the sidewalk and a small grass embankment. He ignores police warnings to drop his knife. He advances on police at a normal speed, his arms swinging at his sides. And he is shot nine times, including while on the ground.

    Did St. Louis police have to shoot Kajieme Powell?

    Even with clear video of the entire encounter there is little agreement as to what happened.

    yep.. saw that.. they look for any excuse to use deadly force.. they could have tased the dude.. they could have shot him in the leg.. they could have done so many things.. but the truth is they hate black men.. and any excuse to kill, they take it. And while the focus is on the cops.. know that they judiciary behind them is just as racist.

    Brutha with the cell went from laughing at the unfolding scene to a small, "Oh my God...."

    Then the cops cuffed the dead man.

    "Oh, my God...." :bye:

    Glad you heard that. I didn't. Whateva....

    Dayum! You got good ears!

    Beg pardon? We were looking at FACT, not engaging in navel-gazing speculation!

    It was the bruthas' faults, eh? (smh)

    Btw, if you were there, what would YOU have done?
    "Oh, my God..."

    See previous. :bye:

    Why are you LYING LIKE A FREAKIN' DOG on the "victim???" Or, maybe I'd better watch that video again because I didn't see the "victim" RUSH anybody! Oh, uh, you with the good ears? What "expletives" did the dead brutha yell? I heard nothing but the cameraman's voice.

    Why the lies, brutha? The man is dead. No need to lie on him.... Oops! Are you navel-gazing again? Not reporting the FACTS, i.e, what happened?

    Okay, Imma give you what you want - BRILLIANT! :great:

    Nah. A man is dead. Either report the facts as they occurred or instead of giving us your "brilliant" deductions/observations, show a lil sympathy for the summarily executed young-black-man.

    God help us....

    :10800:

    We have to learn to love one another, people. Drop the narcissim, the self-absorption, and care about each another.

    From the Shoutout Box:

    [​IMG] Tuesday at 10:19 PM - Kadijah:
    yea, he charged them with a butter knife, and Hayle to the Naw! the cops didn't "return fire" because the dead man wit the butter knife didn't "fire" on them to begin with!

    As long as we're clear, they're committed to KILLING US! We can stop asking "why", stop with the respectability politics, stop with telling Black youth they need to "behave". There is NO intelligent dispute of this. If you try, you're our enemy as well.
