Shut Down Grand Central – We The People Will Not Be Silent or Silenced

The shooting of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old African American boy, occurred on November 22, 2014, in Cleveland, Ohio. Two police officers, 26-year-old Timothy Loehmann and 46-year-old Frank Garmback, responded after receiving a police dispatch call describing a “young black male” brandishing a gun at people in a city park.[1][2] A caller reported that a juvenile, was pointing “a pistol” at random people in the Cudell Recreation Center, and stated twice that the gun was “probably fake”. The officers reported that upon their arrival, Rice reached towards a gun in his waistband. Loehmann fired two shots within two seconds of arriving on the scene, hitting Rice once in the torso.[1][3]
Rice’s gun was later found to be an Airsoft replica, though lacking the orange safety feature signifying that the gun is not real.[4][5] Rice died on the day after the shooting.[6] His death has been ruled a homicide by the Cuyahoga County medical examiner.[7]
In the aftermath of the shooting, it was reported that Loehmann, in his previous job as a policeman in Independence, Ohio, had been deemed an emotionally unstable recruit and unfit for duty.[8]
The incident received national and international coverage, in part due to the time of its occurrence, coming shortly after the recent police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri; the death of Eric Garner in Staten Island, New York; the police shooting of Akai Gurley in Brooklyn, New York just two days before; the shooting of John Crawford III in Dayton, Ohio; and the subsequent unrest following these incidents had attracted worldwide attention.

FUNERAL FOR “JOSE LASALLE” MOTHER

10492485_641105589345912_1696966347492889578_n

It has been a struggle for my family and I when we found out the our mother was diagnose with Cancer. We witness how painful it is to see someone you love deteriorate right before your eyes. We stood by our mother side many nights listening to the howls of her pain. We felt helpless, because all we could do was try to use the sound of our voices to comfort her. We was unsuccessful in soothing her pain. For over 2 years my mother and cancer was in a battle, of life and death. Cancer has claim my mother. Now that my mother is no longer in pain, my family and I are a little relieved. We are never going to forget all the beautiful memories that our mother blessed us with.

We Love And Miss You Mom’s!

Last Fight

A face that is always on my mind,
A smile I have seen a million times,
Two eyes that would light up the sky at night,
One last battle you could not fight,
The day was long, then night then morn.
I knew that soon you would be gone,
I clasped your hand so warm in mine,
Soon we would be out of time,
To stay with us you fought so hard,
A million pieces went my heart,
Now a photo I look at to see your smile,
I keep your number on my speed dial,
A video I watch to hear your voice,
This I do…. I have no choice.,
But great memories I will always keep with me,
Your love in my heart for eternity,
I never got to say goodbye,
To understand why, I can but try,
Waiting in heaven from this moment on,
‘Till God asks you to bring me home….

I love you Mum xxx

“SHUT THE NYPD DOWN”

nnied1vtjbhjkwskirbf

To have any pro-cop rally when the people has been denied justice in the case of Eric Garner and Mike Brown is an attack on all those that has been victimize by the militarize police department.

I believe that everyone has the right to express their belief in any manner they want, but not on the blood of our stolen love ones. Police terrorizes people around the world and murder people with impunity. We the people must send police and those that support killer cops a message!

We will not be silent or silenced.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Police Terror could only be ended when police are held accountable for their actions in the same manner as anyone else. Police must be reminded that they are servants who are paid by the public and that their responsibility is to ensure that those most vulnerable are protected.

Sadly, police are the ones taking advantage of the most vulnerable in society and in many encounters police criminalizes, dehumanizes, assaults and murder innocent civilians. With impunity police continue to instill their terror into the communities they are hire to protect and serve. All around the world, from the poorest communities to the most “developed” police has become the militarized arm of the state.

Police brutality will continue until an effective and robust legal system, free from corruption, ensures that anyone who commits a violent act is subject to the law. When officers start to face justice like everyone else and we see custodial sentences handed out to those police officer who have committed violent acts, maybe it will begin to send a message to other police officers that they themselves will face justice if they break the law.

There’s probably no easy answer in addressing such a widespread issue like police brutality, but raising awareness of the issue is at least a start. Often many in the media fail to talk about the issue in a meaningful context in which the public relate too and it is often left to grass root activist to bring such problems to the forefront of people’s attention.

Rapper and activist Logic, speaking about deaths in custody and global police brutality recently said, “This is one of many issues that need addressing globally. Until the people unite against these injustices we will always be losing this battle. A public servant is also a member of the public and should therefore be treated like one.”
