AG Garland and the Department of Justice arrest officers in Breonna Taylor killing

The AP reports that the federal government has arrested four Louisville police officers involved in the  killing of Breonna Taylor.  …It is about time!!! As you may recalled Breonna Taylor was shot to death when officers entered her home, late at night, un-announced.

I’m not going to retell the story here, I just wanted to follow up on the story and mention the fact that the wheels of Justice are finally turning.  And I hope they keep turning to all the other cases that need to be looked at involving police shooting black folk.   I believe that there is a place and purpose for law enforcement, but just pulling out the heat and gunning down black folk is not the answer.  I agree with Attorney General Merrick Garland in his sentiment that “Breonna Taylor should be alive today”.  And honestly, so should many others.  See the link below to see the AP Story!

Why is Flint Still Flint?

Comments are closed.

flintwater4We’re going on a few years now talking about the water crisis in Flint, Michigan.  Mr. Rick Snyder is still Governor; the water is still a poison brown in color—and apparently still causing rashes (according to citizens) when used to bathe in.

I recently read an article by Lucy Tiven that talks about Governor Snyder blocking free water coming to Flint.  My questions are: Why is he still governor?  And Why is Flint still Flint?

In my opinion, this water situation should have been over, done and finished no more than a month after it was discovered to be a problem.  Flint should not still be known for the city with the disastrous water problem.  By now, it should have been Read More

South Carolina Owes North Carolina Land

I saw this article in Pastemagazine.com titled, So Part of South Carolina’s About to Turn into North Carolina.   It was an interesting, and somewhat amusing article when I first read it.  I actually thought the article was a joke– until I read the background info.  Then I thought… are you kidding? [ Apparently not].  So now, according to the article, sum 660 square miles of land belong to North Carolina.

It’s amazing how something someone does or does not do affects an outcome so many years later.  I find it even more amazing that they had records of what went down in 1735.  1735 being the year.  It’s a short and interesting article. You should give it a read.  So Part of South Carolina’s About to Turn into North Carolina.

Plight of Davontae Sanford

After seeing this story on NBCnews.com, it is my opinion that some people should not be in law enforcement nor the judicial system.  For a 14-year-old boy’s case to not be gone over and over and over and over again—before putting him in jail is really effed up.   Why were police interrogating a kid, let alone anybody else, without legal representation?  And what are those interrogators doing now?  Are they still working?  Do they still have a job?  I certainly hope not.   Lastly, what was the judge thinking?   Stories like this really, really, –really irritate me.  Davontae Sanford to be freed.

My site tag is ‘politics’ for where I’ll have my extended political tweets and posts… and I’m using Blogger for now as well.  It’s where I can rant and rave and expand on my twitter musings– away from all of my ‘other’ stuff.  So stay tuned!  Some of the the writings might be short … some might be rather long… but all longer than 140 characters.  😉

This is where I can go long on my extended political thoughts should I so desire and I invite your thoughts and comments… Just put your grown folk pants on when you show up and let’s talk about the issues… Let’s begin.
