OUR LIVES MATTER

OUR LIVES MATTER

I AM A FORMER CHICAGO POLICE GANG CRIMES OFFICER. I HAVE BEEN IN SHOOTOUTS, CAR CHASES, FOOT CHASES, SEARCH WARRANTS, UNDERCOVER WORK, REVERSE STINGS, GUN ARREST, DRUG ARREST; I HAVE MORE ARREST THEN SOME SMALL TOWNS HAVE IN THERE WHOLE DEPARTMENT’S HISTORY: AND I NEVER HATED MY AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY BECAUSE OF MY WORK.

I HAVE WORKED ALONG SIDE WHITE POLICE OFFICERS AND ON MANY OCCASIONS HAD TO CORRECT THEM ABOUT [URBAN STYLE DRESS DOES NOT MEAN GANG MEMBER AND JUST BECAUSE YOU ARRESTED HIM FOR DRUGS IN THE PAST DOESN’T MEAN HE HAS DRUGS ON HIM NOW]. I THE DISTRICTS WHERE A LOT OF THE OFFICERS WERE BLACK-WE HAD A SAYING. “EVERY PERSON WITH A GUN DOESN’T NEED TO BE SHOT”.

BUT LISTEN VERY CAREFULLY! WHAT WE ARE SEEING TODAY IS EVIL. WE ARE WITNESSING THE UNCHECKED HATRED OF WHITE POLICE OFFICERS FOR AFRICAN AMERICA COMMUNITIES. THEY ARE KILLING PEOPLE THAT ARE NOT EVEN ARMED IN TO-MANY CASES BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOT BEEN PROPERLY SCREENED AND RE-SCREENED FOR THE WORK THEY MUST DO. IN TO MANY CASES THEY HAVE BEEN GIVE THESE JOBS BECAUSE OF [GOOD OLD BOY] NETWORKS AND FRIENDLY HAND SHAKES AND THAT DOESN’T HELP YOU WHEN YOUR A POLICE OFFICER.

AS A POLICE OFFICER YOU MUST BE ABLE TO THINK WITH OUT PAST OR PRESENT RACIAL STEREO TYPES AND HATREDS BLOCKING YOUR ABILITY TO ASSESS THREATS.

I HAVE CHASED MANY AFRICAN AMERICAN MALES THAT HAD GUNS IN THEIR HANDS BUT THEY WERE RUNNING AWAY FROM ME SO I DID NOT HAVE TO SHOOT THEM AND THEY WERE TAKEN IN TO CUSTODY SAFELY; MY THREAT LEVEL ASSESSMENT WAS NOT IMPAIRED BECAUSE I DID NOT HAVE A HATRED FOR THE PEOPLE I WAS CHASING AND I WAS NOT AFRAID OF THEM.

WHAT IS IN PEOPLE COMES OUT OF THEM WHEN PRESSURE IS APPLIED.

MANY WHITE POLICE OFFICERS ARE CONFRONTING AFRICAN AMERICANS BASED ON THEIR OWN PREDETERMINED RACIAL STEREO TYPES AND UNDERLYING HATRED FOR MINORITIES; AND TODAY WE ARE SEEING MANY WHITE POLICE OFFICER’S HATRED IMPAIR THEIR ABILITY TO PROPERLY AND SAFELY EVALUATE THREAT NO THREAT SITUATIONS.

THUS THE STATEMENT: AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITIES BEWARE OF POLICE OFFICERS, ESPECIALLY WHITE POLICE OFFICERS!

IT’S NOT A MATTER OF DEBATE IT IS A MATTER OF SAFETY BECAUSE TO MANY WHITE POLICE OFFICERS CAN’T MAKE THE PROPER THREAT ASSESSMENT WHEN THEY ARE AROUND AFRICAN AMERICANS ESPECIALLY AFRICAN AMERICAN MALES!
