The thing is...blacks are killing blacks in Illinois and so are the police! So where oh where do we begin? Who do we go to FIRST? The youth who are NOT listening? Or the police who are NOT listening? I think we are witnessing a social war on the inside as well as the outside of our culture. This. Is. A. Tragedy. But!
Black on Black crime has nothing to do with a social war, but has more to do with the availability of guns for Black children/teenagers and Black youth who are too immature to possess them in the first place. Loop Holes in our gun laws have created a pipeline from the gun "dealers", gun "shows" and "private sales" straight to the Black community, straight into the hands of immature Black youth and criminals.
Black on Black crime and Police Brutality and Murder of Black people are apples and oranges.
The Police have a duty bound by law to Not murder American citizens, to Not harass American citizens, to Not torture American citizens, to Not beat American citizens to with an inch of their life, that are not threatening them with violence or a weapon. When the police single Black people out to harass, beat, torture and murder in cold blood, they are no longer police officers, but are no more than gangs doing what gangs do. When Police Commissioners/Sheriffs/Chiefs and D.A.s/Prosecutors/Judges/Juries look the other way, side with rogue, racist, sadistic, psychopathic cops in such acts, it is nothing but Jim Crow in action and the continuation of the Lynching of Black people in America.
