Justice Denied

"Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob, and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe."  

Frederick Douglass

As we all expected, the federal government's attorneys are not seeking a case against Officer Darren Wilson, the officer who shot Michael Brown dead for jaywalking.  It is important that everyone remember that when this catastrophic encounter took place, no one had filed any complaint against Mr. Brown and no one had issued a warrant for his arrest on any charge. He was a young African American male walking down a Ferguson street. He is dead. Officer Wilson is financially set for retirement, cleared of any wrongdoing, and allowed to live as he wishes.

But Michael Brown is dead.

Meanwhile in Brighton, Alabama Sheneque Proctor is also dead. She was at a party with friends in Bessemer when she was

arrested for disorderly conduct. She died in police custody. No details are being released by police. Ms. Proctor, a young woman with a history of asthma, who complained she could not breathe but was ignored, died in custody.  She leaves behind an infant daughter. Like Mr. Brown, Ms. Proctor was 18. No one appears to be taking responsibility for what happened.

However, Sheneque Proctor is dead. 

There is a petition calling for investigation of the circumstances surrounding her death.

Sara Culhane is very much alive. Per RawStory

"According to the Bucks County Courier-Times, the prosecutor overseeing  the case of 19-year-old Sara Culhane — who crashed her BMW into three cars, injured a woman in the process, and

assaulted a police officer while resisting arrest — is  dropping most charges against the young woman. Culhane will see two felony charges of aggravated assault and attempting to elude police, along with misdemeanor resisting arrest and traffic violations dropped to to a single misdemeanor charge of a crime involving personal injury.

According to NJ. com, as a first time offender Culhane will be eligible for a first-time offender program in Pennsylvania, allowing her to avoid jail time, with the promise of a clean record after completing a rehabilitation program and public service."

Sara Culhane is a white, 19 year old Amherst student who drives a BMW. 


The quote above that opens this post was part of an address by Mr. Douglass on the twenty fourth anniversary of Emancipation in the District of Columbia, Washington D.C., in April of 1886.

In 129 years, nothing has changed

"Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob, and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe."  

No one standing idly by, making excuses why it is okay to kill our children while turning their faces from clear and irrefutable injustice flaunted in our faces, can honestly look at me and tell me that #BlackLivesMatter

#BlackLivesMatter? Prove it.
