Citizens, Cops and Cop Apologists

By Elmer Whittaker  

The long past due outcry over police misconduct, brutality and outright murder has never been about neither Michael Brown, Eric Garner nor Tamir Rice in specific. The current protests against police abuse and police state in our country has been brewing ever since the Rodney King beating in 1992 and has steadily built up pressure with the increased use of video, cell phone and surveillance cameras which clearly and undisputedly shows everyone who chooses to see the enormity of injustices and crimes committed against the American people, by the governments police state forces. 9/11 and the Patriot Acts have seriously stepped up the intensity and violence of today’s police state.

I Once Was Blind…

By Elmer Whittaker

When back in 1992 the video of the Rodney King beating was released, I was as outraged as everyone else just to be dumbfounded by the acquittal of police officers clearly involved and without any doubt guilty of the justified charges against them.

The Most Corrupt State In The Union

By Elmer Whittaker   

Having lived in numerous states and cities including New York City in the 80’s and remembering well the news footage from of the police corruption before, during and after Katrina I was convinced that New Orleans was the most corrupt city making Louisiana the most corrupt state.

Occupy and Police State Protests

By Elmer Whittaker

In the past few days, more specifically ever since the Michael Brown and Eric Garner protests started in Fergusson, MO and New York City, NY have I been reminded on the immediate outcry of the commonly known as “right-wing” and conservative community against the protesters labeling them as looters, rioters and ultimately communists.

I felt like I was traveling back in time when Occupy Wall Street first got started a few years ago.

Yes, the new anti-Police State Movement got started out on the wrong foot when some of the protesters in Ferguson in fact were looting and burning mostly businesses of innocent community members. There is simply no excuse for harming or damaging the properties or health and life of innocent community members.

At present police misconduct, abuse of power, police brutality, police murders but also false and fabricated charges and convictions as well as prosecutorial and judicial misconduct, malicious prosecutions and legal extortion by way of plea deals are at its all-time high and rising.

The simple truth of life and judicial as well as police misconduct is that as long there are no or only little consequences the abuse and the corruption will continue uninhabited. This is not a racial issue any longer, although the Black and Hispanic minorities may still bear the brunt of it, police and judicial system really kill and abuse the citizenry indiscriminately.

Oppression, Exploitation and Injustices in America

By Elmer Whittaker

From the Native American tribes and the black African slaves over the Chinese who paved the railroads way west with their lives, over Irish and Italian immigrants over the Jim Crow Laws, the KKK and the lynching of supposedly free black citizens, to the Japanese internment camps; From the pioneer days of the lawless west, the Mexicans, the child labor at the expense of education and childhood to the poverty wages without any sort of insurance or healthcare working in intolerable conditions to the sweat shops filled with women who were denied almost any rights, this Nation was not only a questionable and supposedly “shinning” example of democracy but also a shocking warning that greed, lack of compassion and ruthlessness, can and does bring out the worst in unscrupulous people.
