Justice 4 George Floyd

By now I’m sure you all recognize the face and know what happened to this man by the hand of the police. This is personal to me for two reasons: For one, I’m a black man that has experienced foul treatment from the police, simply because the color of my skin. Secondly, Minneapolis is my city. I was born and raised in South Minneapolis, just minutes away from the Cup Foods store that George Floyd was murdered in front of. My first apartment as an adult was literally around the corner from the spot where this black man’s life was taken.

This unjustly act resulted in the frustrated people of Minneapolis rioting, looting and burning shit down. I won’t try to justify the rioting, but I understand the pain and frustration that sparked it. And if you’re more upset about the rioting than the murder of George Floyd, you’re part of the problem. They can rebuild those buildings, but his life is gone forever.

As of today, only 1 of the 4 officers has been arrested and charged. All four cowards need to be charged and convicted of murder, so the rest of law enforcement across the country knows that we will no longer tolerate unjust and racist treatment by power drunken punks hiding behind their badges.

And if they don’t. We’ll burn this whole fuckin’ country down. #Justice4George.

    the riots and protests being responded to with more beat downs make me think a lot of tupac’s tracks from his 93 album where he roughly says “unite, there’s more of us than there is of them” and the something 2 die 4 interlude that mentions several people that were unjustly killed

    it’s only getting worse and at some point people will take action against police when stopping brutality becomes worth dying for
