We believe that respect for individual
Powerful. One of the most epic speeches I've ever heard.
Today the cop who killed Philando Castile was acquitted of all charges. Philando had done absolutely n...othing wrong, except vaguely resemble another black suspect.
Police are now allowed to murder us without consequence, if they think we resemble a suspect.
Philando's mom, Valerie, delivered an incredible rant to the press today in response, telling it like it is, dropping some rare insight.
"My first born only son, dead, here in Minnesota. Because it's from a police officer, that makes it ok. Now they've got free reign. [The officer] is found innocent on all counts. He shot into a car with no regard for human life. And now that's ok."
"This happened with Philando. When they get done with us, they're coming for you, for you, and for you.... you all are next. And you'll be standing up here fighting for justice just as I am."
"We're not evolving as a civilization, we're devolving."
She's right. This is a terrifying precedent. We don't have a justice system in this country. We have an official meat grinder chewing up lives. The criminal officials involved in destroying lives are protected from justice.
This can't be tolerated.
