AmeriKKKa: Three Decisions and an Anniversary



Make a list of the people killed by cops. Then make a list of pigs who have been charged with murder (let alone convicted).

One list is very, very long. The other so short you could probably write it on a matchbook.


August 24, 2019, Aurora, Colorado cops stopped 23-year-old Elijah McClain after getting a report of a “sketchy” man walking in the neighborhood. Translation: a Black man walking home from the store. The pigs claim McClain was suffering from “excited delirium.” In a video you hear McClain saying, “I have my ID right here…. That’s my house. I was just going home,” then weeping, saying, “I can’t breathe. Please stop.” The cops administered an overdose of the powerful sedative ketamine, causing McClain to vomit continuously, go into cardiac arrest and later die.

February 24, 2021, a grand jury decision: The pigs who murdered Elijah McClain will NOT face any charges.

March 23, 2020, 42-year-old Daniel Prude was having a serious mental health crisis and ran into the streets naked. He needed help. He needed compassion. But the Rochester, NY pigs grabbed him, pushed his face into the ground, and put a “spit sock” over his head, holding him down until he stopped breathing. Prude later died at the hospital.

February 23, 2021, a grand jury decision: The pigs who murdered Daniel Prude will NOT face any charges.

April 9, 2020, Cleveland cop Jose Garcia was on his way to work when he claims he saw two young men stealing a box of soda from a truck. Garcia pursued the men in his car, drove up beside their car and shot 22-year-old Desmond Franklin five times in the head, killing him. 

February 12, 2021, a grand jury decision: The pig who murdered Desmond Franklin will NOT face any charges.

February 23, 2021: The one-year anniversary of the murder of Ahmaud Arbery in Brunswick, Georgia. A white father and son armed themselves and pursued Arbery in a pickup truck after seeing him jogging in their neighborhood. Arbery died from three close-range shotgun blasts. The murderers were let go by the police and only charged two months later when a video of the murder surfaced. The family of Arbery is still waiting for justice.

Now Say these other names: Randall Lockaby, in Erlanger, KY; Carl Dorsey III, in Newark, NJ; Ryan Shirey, in Lehigh County, PA; Derek Hayden, in Seattle, WA; Andrew Hogan, in Trotwood, OH; Trey Bartholomew, in Pennsburg, PA; Keenan Sailer, in Mesa, AZ; Christopher Hagans, in Stratford, CT; Kevin Costlow, in Laytonsville, MD; Richard Fenton Thomas, in Caroline County, VA… February isn’t even over, and at least 10 people have already been murdered by cops this month.

Murder after murder after murder by the pigs who “serve and protect” this system—a system that needs to be overthrown.
