Teach brother teach! Ain't a gotdam thing enigmatic, unclear, mysterious, etc., "rule of law" being trotted out, scoped out, called out, and turned out as systematic lying, cheating, and wrong-doing under color of authorityWhen Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson left the scene of the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown, the officer returned to the police station unescorted, washed blood off his hands and placed his recently fired pistol into an evidence bag himself.

Those actions, described in grand jury testimony, violated protocols for handling a crime scene and securing evidence, according to experts in policing procedures and Justice Department documents.

Wilson’s movements after the shooting were among a number of police actions in the aftermath of Brown’s death that experts said were unusual. The grand jury transcripts revealed, for example, that the officers who interviewed Wilson immediately after the shooting did not tape the conversations. The transcripts also showed that an investigator from the medical examiner’s office opted not to take measurements at the crime scene and arrived there believing that what happened between Brown and Wilson was “self-explanatory.’’

It is unclear how these un­or­tho­dox practices may have influenced the investigation of a shooting that has triggered a national conversation about race and police practices. The grand jury’s decision Monday not to indict Wilson in connection with the shooting death has led to protests nationwide.

The real question is why did Kathy Alizadeh find it necessary to provide directions to the jury using an unlawful statute. Did Wilson violate the current law by firing at Michael Brown as he ran 50 yards from the officers car? Numerous witnesses, based on what they saw, believed that Brown had been shot in the back, and that is why he stopped running. Did Alizadeh make the vague "correction" only after no evidence was presented to show that Wilson had fired at Brown while he was fleeing? No evidence presented in this kangaroo court does not mean that no shots were fired from behind. Five shots fired at Brown outside the police car missed their target. At the bare minimum Alizadeh and McCulloch should be charged with prosecutorial misconduct

A flagrant and shameless multi-level orchestrated peasant stampede which will only go to underscore both domestically and internationally the abject powerlessness of the American negroe. No one at any level of the power structure in America is going to intercede to rectify the monstrous deformation of what passes itself off as the rule of law. There will be no further consequences.

Yep, the rule of law is more about rule, i.e. who rules, than it is about justice. What happened to Michael Brown, Jr. is a classic case of "how to get away with murder." While we recognize that too many Afrikans in America are expecting human/moral sensitivity from people whose culturally-structured thought drives them to see us as less than human, there is value in exposing contradictions.

What is the value of pointing out the contradictions Bro. Makheru? The frog BEEN knowing the nature of the scorpion for a very long time now.

That’s a good one, and it actually fits quite well with Carmichael’s narrative. Dr. King initially thought that the behavior of the fundamentally vicious could be changed. Stokely said that ain’t happening Jack. Stokely would have told the frog that there was a clear contradiction between what the scorpion is saying and his historical practice. If the frog had listened, he would have survived. In his last years Dr. King began to see the reality:

“The thing wrong with America is white racism. White folks are not right…It’s time for America to have an intensified study on what’s wrong with white folks.”

“The riots are caused by nice, gentle, timid white moderates who are more concerned about order than justice. The policy-makers of the white society have caused the darkness: they created discrimination; they created slums; they perpetuate unemployment, ignorance, and poverty. It is incontestable and deplorable that Negroes have committed crimes, but they are derivative crimes. They are born of the greater crimes of white society.”

“I am not sad that Black Americans are rebelling; this was not only inevitable but eminently desirable.”

Let's see what the jury in Staten Island comes back with, given the video evidence at their disposal.

As far as the situation between Stokely's era and now goes, 40 years of intensifying media propaganda has been systematically infused into the broken machinery of the American psyche. Those weakest elements most prone to hypnotic influence have been systematically conditioned to the fringes of their possible psychological apartheid underdevelopment. Whether that's the ratchet underclass of niggerized poor blacks, whites, and latinos - tattoo'd completely out of any possibility of assimilation to the clerical mainstream, or, the political and psychological heirs to the confederate bushwhacker and outlaws celebrated in decades of hollywood westerns, but now having fallen curiously silent over this past 40 years or so.

(not many westerns being made anymore, and brokeback mountain don't count)

The original stick-up kids, get your hands up in the air, and keep'em where I can see'em - have almost been erased out of the collective psyche. Not that outside the outlaw josey wales you ever got much insight into the nature of post civil war western outlawry, but, america's historical outlaw progenitors have been pushed out of the collective popular imagination. Pookie, Dravonte, an'em now rather firmly occupy America's concept of outlaws and outlawry and their literal heirs are the "get your hands up in the air" overseers I've been on about rather obsessively these past couple months. (I'm using Google and its property youtube as my bellweathers for this assertion)

Semi-realistic depictions of wild west outlawry (post civil war six-shooters and all that) show that there was a lot less hokey "stick'em up" than there was straight guerilla style ambush and massacre and then carrion-like theft) Kind of what you'd expect from hardened war criminals who lost and were on the run.
