Seriously? Cops Justified In Shooting a 12 Year Old?

Cleveland Browns wideout Andrew Hawkins walks onto the field wearing a protest shirt during introductions prior to the game against the Cincinnati Bengals at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland on Sunday.If you want to know why I call the police forces in this country the stormtroopers of white supremacy and Black America is still singing NWA when it comes to the po-po's, hope you had a chance to check out the jacked up interview on MSNBC last night with Cleveland Police Union President  Jeffrey Follmer.

He whined about Cleveland Browns players wearing 'Justice For Tamar Rice' shirts before their game with the Bengals on Sunday, but had no empathy for parents worried that their kids would be the victims of a shooting by out of control white cops.

"How about this? Listen to police officers commands, listen to what we tell you, and just stop," Follmer said during the interview "I think that eliminates a lot of problems. I have kids too, they know how to respect the law. They know what to do when a police officer comes up to them.

"I think the nation needs to realize that when we tell you to do something, do it, and if you're wrong you're wrong, and if you're right, then the courts will figure it out."

How about this Officer Follmer?  How about weeding the racist cops out of your departments instead of protecting them?   How about you and your fellow trigger happy white cops who have the same dismissive and racist attitudes, stop treating all Black people like suspects.

You also need to consider that this negative drama between white cops and Black people goes back over 50 years and we're beyond sick and tired of it.
