The LA Sheriff's Department Is Just as Murderous, Racist, Repressive and Putrid as the System They Enforce

Like the system of capitalism-imperialism they “serve and protect,” the LA County sheriffs are straight-up murderers—killing in cold blood Andŕes Guardado, Latino, and Dijon Kizzee, Black, from South Central last summer—just two out of 300 murders by the sheriffs since 2000. Of course, they are just one cog in a worldwide machinery of death and destruction that murders people and endangers humanity.

Like the system they enforce, the sheriffs are racist—they have white-supremacist gangs who give their members tattoos when they murder someone Black or Brown. Of course, the cowards who run this system have always relied on racist gangs and Klans to do their dirtiest work. White supremacy is built into this system, like it’s built into its pig departments.

Like the system they desperately defend, these pigs try to repress what politically threatens them—last summer they viciously attacked people, including young children, for “crimes” like demonstrating in the streets or holding a press conference. And 50 years ago they infamously killed four people at the largest Chicano march against the Vietnam War ever held.

Because the system they enforce has no answers for our youth—no real jobs, no good education—they pack people into jails by the tens of thousands, mostly Black and Latino. Just like the system they serve, with its more than two million prisoners, they turn those jails and prisons into inhuman pens.

When you get right down to it, these pigs are cowards—running in packs, shooting people in their backs. What are they afraid of? The people—once they stand up.

In all this, they are perfect representatives of the system they enforce: capitalism-imperialism. They are puffed up now… until we, the people they oppress and repress, get organized, for revolution and move, when the time is right, to defeat and dismantle the whole machinery of violent repression this system sits on.

And we ARE getting organized, now. Join us.

In This Rare Time When Revolution Becomes Possible…
DONATE to—and be Part of—the Fall/Winter $30K Fund Drive

At this time, we must expand our reach to the tens of thousands who do not yet know—and must know about—this revolution and the leadership we have in Bob Avakian.

There is no site like in the world today… where people in this country and internationally can get introduced to and connect with the leadership we have in BA… where people can get a lively scientific analysis of major developments in society and the world, how they relate to the system we live under, what the interests of humanity are, how revolution is the only solution, and how people can and are moving to build toward that revolution. Our bilingual site reaches thousands of Spanish-speaking people the world over.

To fund this—and go even further—we’re raising $30K this fall/winter. Contributing to this drive is a crucial way to be part of this movement for revolution. How you can be part of this:

  • Donate as much as you can—and become a regular sustainer.
  • Reach out to people you know and call on them to donate to
