Dear Readers,

Across the country much is being said about the wave of police shootings. Protesters are taking to the streets, and city leaders are asking for patients, peace, tolerance and unity. Yet, the violence against black men continues, and rascal tension persist between white officers in the African-American communities. While addressing an audience at St. Patrick Cathedral, Mayor Bill de Blasio said, ” We’re far, far from perfect but we’ve come a long way.” I say, ” We are moving back wards.”

They say, ” Black Lives Matter.” I say, ” All life Matter”

In the words of Rodney King, a black male who was violently beaten by L. A. officers in 1992, at a press conference he asked, ” Can we all get along? Can we stop making it horrible for the older people and kids?… It’s just not right. We are all stuck here for a while. Lets try to work it out.”

What Say you?

    The system is unbalanced and will remain so as long as we have hypocrites in political positions fat kid when they want to care when it suits their own needs and interests and you’re going to have situations like this. My grandmother used to say you reap what you sow now we’ll be the first to say that no one deserves to lose their life unjustly regardless of what side of the fence they are however you cannot keep killing taking innocent lives in the name of the quote unquote law and then you get all shocked and shaken when they react when the retaliation hits home since police officers don’t want to step up and want to protect their own then you can’t get upset weird people begin to revolt against the system that is designed to protect and serve
