Yesterday, I posted a pic of the founders of the Black Panthers For Self Defense next to a pic of protestors holding a sign that reads ‘Stop Killing Black People’. My point was that the latter has never worked.
Well, turns out these guys in this pic are saying the same thing. The image is from men in Minneapolis who have armed themselves against the police, and looters. They state
“Basically, you’ve seen the records that cops keep, and the cops are a lot less likely to try and tread on peoples rights when there are other armed Americans with them.”
Are you catching this language. These men have said exactly what the Panthers said. Citizens have a need to arm themselves against the police.
Whether you agree with the Panthers or these men isn’t the point. The thing to see here is that the reluctance the entire law enforcement system (police, DA’s, Attorneys, and, Judges) have one again caused such a distrust amongst Americans that today as I right this post at least two American cities are burning (Minneapolis, and Louisville) due to outright racist actions by law enforcement, and now even white Americans are saying enough is enough citizens must arm themselves against the police.
Why Has Law Enforcement Not Dealt With This Obvious Problem?
If you’re wondering why law enforcement has shown so much reluctance to deal with the overt police brutality primarily directed at minority communities see it’s because according to a 2006 FBI report law enforcement has been infiltrated on all levels by white supremacy groups.
