Mothers across the United States are grieving the loss of their children to a corrupt world that they have no control over. When it comes to police misconduct and excessive force, there are no mothers more frustrated than those that are stone-walled by the system that they’ve so long “trusted” from a distance. While it may be easy to pass over the African-American victims that we allow the media to criminalize before prosecution, how easy is it to overlook the African-American mothers who have morally done right by their family and can actually prove their child’s innocence? It’s not easy to deny a determined mother. Is that why we are not hearing from police brutality victim’s mothers? The truth is, most of these children and young adults are good people that come from morally responsible households. The media not focusing on the compassionate angle of the mothers who know the victims of these senseless police related crimes best is a clear indication of the agenda at hand.
This is how the script goes… A citizen is victimized by a violent or incompetent police officer. The officer in most cases tries whatever he can do in the minutes following his crime to craft the scene or situation to fit his future narrative of the story. In short, the officer is immediately tries to figure a way of justifying the crime he just committed. Classic examples would include:
1. He’s reaching for my gun/taser.
2. Suspect charged at me.
3. I feared for my life.
These classic examples are facts. These breeches of trust and criminal activity are indisputable and can be proven through many well documented cases. From sodomy to hangings, our police departments in the United States are not immune to evil. While I do not intend to discount the validity of the work law enforcement around the country does, myself and others should not hide the “bad apples” in an attempt to keep the reputation of law enforcement “flawless”. If we engage in such activities like turning a blind eye, we are just as complicit in our own police state enslavement as those who have already planned this for us through policy and politics.
After “fixing” the crime scene the officer is automatically protected by being able to keep silent and receive a union representative lawyer. Upon obtaining representation, the officer is either placed on administrative leave or reduced to desk duty. This is meant to show that an investigation has ensued… Supposedly. Once these actions have taken place, a statement is then given to justify the officer’s actions to prep the public for a future acquittal on all charges. Why? Damage control to preserve the integrity and influence of law enforcement operations and to avoid massively expensive lawsuits that could economically cripple present or future department operations and plans.
It’s a simple script. It happens almost all of the time with very little variation. The question is why are we allowing these situations to continue to occur as a community? What can we do to fight this “machine”? How can we protect ourselves now and our children’s future tomorrow from police overstepping their boundaries without proper accountability? These are the questions that we should be asking ourselves as we listen to mothers like Renee Felton and so many others who have been so unexpectedly bombarded with the harshest realities that America has to offer. Renee’s story about her some Kwadir Felton is a story that you won’t forget. The outcome of Kwadir Felton’s story is something that even the most hardened law enforcement supporters are not able to legally or morally justify. When a story is this compelling and heartfelt, the only question left to ask now is…. What can we do to help restore the family that was taken away from Renee Felton? The livelihood and right to life that was stolen from from Kwadir Felton? What can we do to help restore the humanity that has been raped from this community at the hands of Jersey City Police Department?
