Comentary: Shoot First and Ask Questions Last!
By Malik Spellman
Published May 22, 2008

That is the meaning of to serve and protect! Lately we have seen a rash of shootings by police officers all over the country and we have not seen one situation where the police has been bought up on any charges and found guilty for their actions. I don’t care where you look in the world of cops killing their citizens, they always seem to justify their actions before they even bury the victim.

What is going on with these cops? Do you think that some of those wonderful soldiers coming home from the war looking for a job in law enforcement is going to be safe on the streets after coming home from years of killing and mayhem? Plus the culture of our new “save the world” mentality of the cops. Although I don’t fear cops or their guns I still feel a little nervous for my kids when they are in the car after getting stopped for just about anything.

These new cops now hate the public. They have no smiles or mercy when they stop you. Every thing is about your race and income—that is what determines your experience. But if you are poor White, Black or Mexican, you are in for the shock of your life when you are pulled over. If you don’t think that these people are targeting us then take a trip down to traffic court and see if you see any body in line other than us. It is sad when all these new bootees are out to kill the citizens.

I received a letter from a lady in Compton who said that the rollers beat her boy friend down to a pulp for nothing at all. This is not a accusation toward all cops, especially that one you want to see if you need help, But the one that brings his home to work and takes his job home to prey on his family. I got people who work in law enforcement and they are embarrassed by these people like the Long Beach police who just recently killed a retarded man for nothing while he laid flat on the ground.

“That is racism.” Then you turn the news on and you see a crooked cop on TV getting sentenced for crimes that are wicked in nature. I know his buddies are saying to themselves, wow, just think we would have killed someone for shooting him. Then it turns out that this guy was with a ring of crooked cops from here to Long Beach. Someone needs to look at all of these guys arrests and question the positions they took in court to get the convictions they have. We need to get some help from the justice department concerning how we are paying taxes to only be killed or beaten up by a power-welding freak. Crooked cop take your show on the road. And Los Angeles, stop soliciting people to come to L.A to be cops from places where racism is so prevalent.

I was in Georgia once and saw a billboard soliciting red necks with monster arms and legs to come join the L.A County Sheriff’s Department. And Lord knows, I feel sorry for the elderly woman who the evil Inglewood police shot in the heart. After the poor 18-year-old child was shot in the heart trying to flee from a shooter.

What a Day, What a Day! If you think that is something, listen to this. A brother was pulled over in Jamaica Queens, New York by two cops who ordered him out of the car, calling him all sorts of racist names and beating him up, only to discover that the brother was the highest-ranking brother on the force within the department. Nowadays you will be happy if you even see a Black policeman. The new oppressor is not White or Black— he is just evil. He is just a hater of all people who are poor. They look at us like we are animals and dogs. How can we stand up under that type of tyranny and degradation? Officer, sorry, I am the wrong selection because Black and Brown people are the wrong complexion. OBama please help my momma. She is a slave who will probably die of old age on the plantation. Long live Tookie Stanley Williams’ memory.
