Terence Crutcher, Keith Scott, & Tantrums Dressed Up As Protest

Terence Crutcher
It's not even worth asking what pedantic bullshit the excessive force LEOs apologists are going to come up with this time for  Terence Crutcher. It's going to be just as slagging douchebaggish as any other nonsensical rhetoric excusing unjustified use of force has been, and the fact that there have been so many occasions to regurgitate it all is in itself vomit inducing.


Keith Scott









The same may be said of Keith Scott, WHEN WE ACTUALLY HAVE ANYTHING LIKE A CLUE WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED.





 
Here comes the "Snooze is a goddamn fucking racist" part.

Tulsa Oklahoma lost a citizen under dodgy circumstances, and registered well justified outrage and demands for transparent investigation and justice.

Charlotte North Carolina, the city I was born in and currently live about 15 minutes from, also lost a citizen under as yet uninvestigated circumstances, and some denizens of it opted to turn a protest into a violent tantrum and pretend they were protesting police violence with it.

I applaud and salute you, Tulsa. May justice and truth prevail for you, for Mr. Crutcher and his family, and all the other people of all colors who live with the monstrous fear that they could be next. (wish goes out)

Charlotte, YOU JUST UNDERMINED THE PROGRESS CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVISTS HAVE BEEN WORKING FOR.

How the festering hell does it accomplish anything productive to put people out in 70-80 mph interstate traffic in the dark and make more human targets out of them?


How does it bring about any understanding of common humanity to take your anger out on people you've most highly likely never laid eyes on, some of whom are only passing through this city or state on the way to somewhere else? Does scaring the crap out of complete strangers make you a Righteous Badass?


What justice did you bring about by looting trucks driven by working people trying to earn a paycheck, and burning the goods they were responsible for? What kind of cheap excuses
are you going to give them, their bosses, or their clients? Or by trashing and looting a store? Are you going to turn around and complain tomorrow about it being closed?

Oh, yeah, riiiiiight, you got people's attention for "The Cause", so that makes it all shiny.
The only attention you're going to get out of this is obstructionist bigots using you like a dirty dishrag as an excuse to discredit real human rights efforts, and paint us all as mindless thugs, liars, and credulous morons like they always have.

You have to be smarter than the people who want to keep you down. DO NOT hand them the tools to keep doing it.

If justice and truth prevail in Mr. Scott's case, it'll be in spite of this bullshit, not because of it.

Here's to a Best Outcome to their families and all the other people who got something out of this week they didn't deserve. May level headed integrity overcome baser agendas.
