Murder Entitlement

Cop core culture cultivates racist malevolence, The profiling pseudoscience. Cop core contempt, rogue roving terrorists in blue, Sadists through and through. Cop core combatants harass, torture, then kill, Another handcuffed man choked still. Cop core cruelty depraved indifference to the defenseless. This story of brutality is relentless. Cop core criminal entitlement to murder at will, The face of oppressive evil. Published: Dissident Voice 11/29/20

There is a strange sort of "solace" that USA is not alone even in these DEATHLY moments. The Canadian police have shot dead some 3 Natives/ First Nations people since George Floyd was suffocated to death. Two of the Canadian victims were women, maybe all three (?) I am praying - & expressing fears & hope, I hope

By no means is the brutality and injustice confined to the U.S., to be sure. But the fact that a global anti-racist movement has emerged in protest, gives me hope. It is a movement which is multiracial and multi-generation. This can make the needed systemic changes possible. i am praying for that just like you.

You are adept at making a powerful statement (yet you praise my prose. Thanks again). Now this poem speaks louder as Mr. Brooks is shot while drunk and running from Wendys Drive Thru (Atlanta, 12th June 2020) shalom, Paz!
