November 6, 2017, Not Guilty Verdict

And Again... Murdering Pig Acquitted! Justice for Delrawn Small!!

November 6, 2017 | Revolution Newspaper |


Early on Monday, July 4, 2016, Delrawn Small, a 37-year-old unarmed Black man, was murdered by an off-duty NYPD pig during a traffic incident on a Brooklyn, New York City street. Today, November 6, 2017, the pig who murdered him was acquitted in a New York trial.

Delrawn Small was driving with his girlfriend and two children when his car reportedly almost crashed with a car driven by an off-duty cop, Wayne Isaacs. At an intersection, Small got out of his car and approached Isaacs’s car. A video (at right) that surfaced a few days later shows Delrawn Small was almost immediately shot, staggered to the side of the street, and died.

The cop who shot Small said Small came over and punched him in the head repeatedly, and that he (the cop) “feared for his life.”

This murder happened just days before of the murders by police of Alton Sterling in Louisiana and Philando Castile in Minnesota. Because of outrage and protest, and the damning evidence of the video, charges were filed against this cop. Today, November 6, 2017, despite the video showing a straight-up cold-blooded murder, this cop was acquitted of all charges. The cop fired his gun barely a second after Small—who, to repeat, was unarmed—reached his car. After shooting Small, the pig gets out of his car, tucking his gun under his shirt as he looks down on the man he just shot down—making no effort to give any aid.

Victor Dempsey, Delrawn Small’s brother, said, “The video is clear as day that shows that everything they told us from the very beginning is a lie. It was a lie, every single thing. And, I don’t know how to feel right now, all I know is that my brother was murdered.”

Once again, “justifiable homicide” when a Black man is killed by police. And now under a white supremacist, genocidal, fascist regime that tells police to stop being “nice” and strives to unleash Nazis and racists.

Enough. Humanity is capable of a much better world than this.
