The Bogeyman

October 13, 2013

When do you stop believing in the bogeyman, realize that your fear of the bogeyman is making you less safe, that this fear is causing innocent people to get killed?

Psychotic.  Schizophrenic.  Black.

This is the pattern of murders committed by police in America.

Read the above article and its links.  We’ve already had cops murder a diabetic man in his own home while his mother, fiancee and 8-year-old daughter watched.  We’ve already had cops murder a double-amputee in a wheelchair for waving a pen around.  We’ve already had cops murder an unarmed woman by firing 17 shots into her car, with her 1-year-old daughter inside.

At what point do we as a country stop blaming the victims and start blaming the murderers?  At what point do we take a hard look at whether our police departments are training officers to be trigger-happy bigots?  At what point do we start actually prosecuting said officers when they murder people?

I mean, really, what is it going to take?
