I, Khalif Muhammad,Ph.d , aka Syn-Q", the writer of this blog, am, like billions of others, a Victim of, and a servant to Racism (White Supremacy) in all areas of people activity. My Ultimate Objective is to use my experiences, and observations, about what Racism (White Supremacy) is and How it works, to promote the use of The United Independent Compensatory Code by Neely Fuller as motivation for other Victims towards the elimination of Racism.
We can never forget the terror that continues to motivate the F.E.A.R.*( of Death), that lies behind the in-actions of Victims of Racism (White Supremacy) who want to resist Racism (White Supremacy), but have not yet converted that want into the burning desire that is needed to do so. The link below may help them to increase that desire. I sure hope so.
I am not surprised at all. Same old shit just a different day. Oscar Grant joins the pantheon of others murdered by Enforcement Officials, who's families received injustice. Grant's family will file a wrongful death suit against Mehserle. I wouldn't be surprised if they got injustice in that case too, but making the attempt is constructive.
Mehserle said that he couldn't tell the difference between his firearm and his taser.
His firearm was a .40 caliber Sig P226, it weighs 34.0 oz, and his Taser X26?
Weighs a whopping, seven ounces!
They even look different.
Colorlines.com states that "the holsters cops use are equipped with multiple mechanisms to prevent a gun from slipping out. The gun itself requires several motions to discharge. Mehserle’s gun weighed 1.7 pounds more than his Taser, and the weapons were plainly distinguishable from each other in both size and color. Further, Mehserle knowingly pulled his Taser out of its holster twice that night. Twice he was able to correctly identify where his Taser was on his duty belt. Twice he unholstered it, flipped the safety switch off and aimed it at Oscar Grant—who caught an image of Mehserle pointing the Taser on his fiancee’s cell phone, the last photo Grant ever took. Twice, Mehserle was able to return his Taser to his holster successfully."
It has been said that Grant was resisting arrest. I don't see it. But, of course, (since me and Mr.Grant are both classified as "black", combined with the countless number of times that Enforcement Officials throughout history have killed "black" males, because the officers involved had a total disregard for their existence.) my eyes are blinded to his resistance, because of my "bias".
Below is one of the same videos that the all Racist Suspect jury that charged Mesherle with involuntary manslaughter, watched with "unbiased" eyes.
Look at the video. Does it look like Grant's is resisting arrest? or is he attempting to show something to B.A.R.T. Enforcement Officials? Why does the officer tell Grant to "sit the fuck down" and follow up with an unnecessary kick to his body?
"As Grant family attorney John Burris said at yesterday’s press conference, 'In my long history being involved in police matters since 1979 and well over 30 homicides with police, never have I had a case when a police officer was convicted of any crime against an African American male.' Given that history, Burris argued, even the involuntary manslaughter conviction is a breakthrough for police accountability." -colorlines.com
