Police were on the scene. Nowadays that’s never good. All the police do is shoot and kill unarmed African American people and the government is right there with the Mr. Clean to scrub all that blood away. But, what they can’t do is take away the memories you once shared, the bonds you’ve both created, and the pain you felt, that pain that continues on. Knowing that the person who attacked your loved one isn’t suffering or dead is the only thing that’s on your mind as soon as the smoke clears. But, you have to settle. You always have to settle.


There is a War on the Streets in the United States

Emma Kaplan | September 22, 2015

Video after video, more times than anyone can count a Black or Latino person, just walking down the streets, going to school or driving to work, could have their life snuffed out by murdering police for no reason.


Treated as a Terrorist for Being Muslim

Debra Sweet | September 22, 2015

Maybe only one good thing came out of Ahmed Mohamed's arrest in Irving TX, a suburb of Dallas. Because he was arrested, cuffed, detained and interrogated by police who claimed the clock he made to show his engineering teacher was a weapon, and later released to parents who didn't cower, but protested his illegitimate detention, almost 4 million people have met Ahmed through this interview:

Rise Up October to STOP Police Terror

Debra Sweet | July 19, 2015

Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, Rekia Boyd, Andy Lopez, Tamir Rice...stopmassincnet

One after another — and so many others, precious Black and Brown lives — victims of police murder. We think of their faces, and furiously ache for justice. Over 1000 people a year killed by police – yet since 2005, less than 60 indictments, less than 25 convictions! * (see footnote)

Millions languish in prison, generation after generation, Black and Latino brothers and sisters. The spearpoint of a whole matrix of oppression.


The “USA Freedom Act”: Freedom to Spy and Suppress

Revolution Newspaper | June 8th, 2015
600 GovtSpying

On June 2, the U.S. Senate voted overwhelmingly to extend key elements of the USA Patriot Act through 2018. Passed in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, the Patriot Act, and its interpretation by courts and application by government agencies, has set loose almost unlimited secret government spying on everything people do. This kind of secret spying on American citizens has been used to facilitate illegal assassination of U.S. citizens abroad without trial, by presidential decree. And it is used to monitor the most minute, personal, and especially oppositional activity, communication, and thinking of nearly everyone on the planet who has access to a phone or the Internet.

US Policy: Only Some Lives Matter

Dennis Loo | December 9, 2014

The first article of this series’ main point was that the unjust and murderous actions of officers such as Daniel Pantaleo and Darren Wilson are not aberrations but in fact a logical outgrowth of, entirely consistent with, inspired by, and necessary corollaries to, US governmental policies, both here and abroad.
