IN REACTION TO WATCHING THE VIDEO OF JAMAL JONES BEING TASED AT A TRAFFIC STOP - STAND UP!!!!
My heart is pounding and I have tears in my eyes as I am writing this. This is a SIGNAL BOOST. As white people, we need to STAND UP for the people of color in this world. This is absolutely disgusting. I am SO sick of seeing police brutality by these fucking meat heads who prove over and over again that they are just on a power trip. You all want to talk about how black people “do it to themselves” .. “Make themselves look bad.” What about this?!???? And what about all these officers .. WHITE OFFICERS who are so KNOWN for unnecessary violence against POC especially blacks???? Why don’t THEY get a renowned bad name, bad rep? I cannot sit here and over look the disgusting habits of police officers by justifying them with the “help they provide” when someone is in need. a STAND UP. PUT THIS SHIT TO AN END. Don’t sit back and say “it will never change” because if you do, you’re a part of the problem. It takes a person speaking up to invoke change, and to make others think.
