No Justice For Victor Steen

UPDATE III:  Republi-con "illustrates just how much the Garner case really is about race. Had Eric Garner been a rural white man with a cowboy hat killed by federal agents, instead of a large black man choked to death by the NYPD, his face would be on a Ted Cruz for President poster by now."

Read The Atlantic, If Eric Garner Were White.

UPDATE II:  Note also, Wilson's testimony is tainted by racism.

Read Slate, Michael Brown Wasn’t a Superhuman Demon.  

UPDATE:  Note, the link below is the sequence of events laid out by St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert P. McCulloch, who has "a long record of protecting police in such cases." 

Read also VOX, Officer Darren Wilson's story is unbelievable. Literally. and Michael Brown spent his last day with his friend Dorian Johnson. Here's what Johnson saw.

I am not surprised that Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson was not indicted, considering what happened in that case

Heck, in NW Florida, police can shoot an unarmed black man in his own driveway, or kill a young black man for riding a bicycle.

Does anyone remember Victor Steen, a 17 year old young black male, chased, then crushed under a Pensacola Police cruiser on October 3, 2009.

Why you might ask?  Because Pensacola Police Officer Jerald Ard saw Steen ride a bicycle through an empty construction site.

Ard pursued Steen in his police cruiser, attempted to fire a Taser weapon from the window of the moving cruiser, and drove the cruiser on the side walk, and against traffic, trying to knock Steen off the bicycle.

Don't take my word for it, watch the video:
