A Pre-Black Friday #Blackout - "It's the hap-happiest season of all!”: Will Violent Protests Against Property and Boycotts of White Businesses Mess Up White America's "Black Friday?"

Stop Supporting White Supremacy! From New York to Los Angeles and dozens and dozens of cities in between, protesters flooded the streets to denounce a white Missouri grand jury's decision not to indict a white Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson in the killing of Michael Brown, an unarmed Black 18-year-old, last August. From [HERE] On Tuesday night in Ferguson Police fired tear gas to disperse a crowd of protesters in Ferguson, Mo., after a police car was set on fire near city hall tonight, officials said. The parked patrol car was set ablaze after a crowd of several hundred people had gathered outside the Ferguson police station.

Police moved quickly to disperse the crowd when the car was set on fire, attempting to defuse the situation before it could escalate into a repeat of what happened Monday night. A day later protests raged and sprouted up in more than 170 U.S. cities. Some demonstrations blocked bridges, tunnels and major highways.  [MORE]

In Ferguson windows were smashed at dozens of businesses in the Ferguson area as protestors ran amok, targeting outposts of corporate businesses like FedEx (FDX)and McDonald's (MCD), Little Cesars, Walgreens and also a U.S. Post Office. About 25 buildings were set on fire Monday night, and many of them were still burning Tuesday. [MORE]

#Blackout. No Justice No Profit! From [HERE] and [HERE] and [HERE] Black consumers plan to protest with their wallets over what they say is a failure of justice in Ferguson, Missouri. On Monday, a grand jury decided not to indict police officer Darren Wilson on any charges in the August 9 shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager. 

The Justice for Michael Brown Leadership Coalition is calling for a national boycott of Black Friday, a major US shopping holiday that follows Thanksgiving, and throughout the weekend. Organiser Dacia Polk told St. Louis radio, "Until this nation begins to place value on black lives, there will be no value placed on this business because black lives matter.”

Boycott advocates hope they can harness African Americans' collective purchasing power, an estimated one trillion dollars. Organisers also plan to walk through malls in silent protest. Boycott supporters tweeted using #BoycottBlackFriday#BrownFriday, and #HandsUpDontSpend.

In Ferguson, Best Buy has been planning to open its St. Louis-area stores at 8 a.m. on Black Friday, promising early-bird discounts on flat-screen televisions, iPads and laptop computers. It is not clear whether the Mega store will have all of its stores open now.

Dozens of businesses in the St. Louis area have suffered since Aug. 9, when demonstrators poured into the streets of Ferguson to protest the death of Michael Brown, the African-American teenager shot by Officer Wilson, a white member of the Ferguson police force.

Several stores along South Florissant Road in Ferguson, where protests have continued on a near-nightly basis, say that their business is down nearly 80 percent since August. Many retailers, including restaurants, nail salons and grocery stores, have been forced to close early in the last few months. Some said they had cut their employees’ hours because there was so little for them to do. [MORE]

Craig Johnson, the president of Customer Growth Partners, a retail consulting firm, compared the crisis in Ferguson to major snowstorms like the one that hit Buffalo this week, or to natural disasters like the Northridge earthquake in California in 1994, in terms of its potential to affect retail sales.

The demonstrations in Hong Kong that began in September “did have a significant effect in tamping down retail activity,” Mr. Johnson said. In St. Louis, he predicted that if demonstrations are raging during the Black Friday weekend, people will avoid “trouble areas” until tensions have eased, or “move the shopping forward, backward or online.” [MORE]

And What is White Collective PowerWhen a white police officer kills an unarmed, surrendering Black teen and their fellow officers, the police chief, internal affairs, the union, jurors, prosecutors, the Governor, the State Attorney General and the white media support, defend, and finance the officers “right” to kill him. [MOREand [MOREAbove racist suspect George Stephanopoulos supports Darren Wilson with exclusive interview. Ask yourself could a Black cop kill an unarmed white teenager and get away with it? Would he receive this kind of collective support?

In fact, according to Anon "there has never been a single instance of a black police officer shooting or killing an unarmed white person in the history of modern law enforcement. This is not surprising but it is absolute proof that the black individual operating within a system of white supremacy cannot mistreat whites even if he or she is wearing a uniform, a badge, and carrying a gun." [MORE] So long as the case is heard by white jurors Wilson is not worried about a civil suit. In fact he just got married.   

Amos Wilson offers the following about "the Power of Refusal" in his book "Black Power." 

"Social Power is more effect than cause. It is generated by social relationships — the habitual ways in which human beings relate to and align themselves with one another. Power is based on the manner in which persons and groups interact with one another.

The powerful rule with the consent of the subordinate, consent created by ideological sleight-of-hand. Ultimately, the legitimacy and exercise of power by the powerful require the cooperation and active support of the subordinate, both behavioral orientations also skillfully manipulated by the powerful to begin with. If certain types of social relationships among the subordinate themselves and between the subordinate and the powerful are required to generate the power exercised by the powerful, then the self-determined changes of relationships among the subordinate and between the subordinate and powerful will lead to commensurate changes in the quantity and quality of power exercised by the powerful. If the cooperation and consent of the subordinate with and to the demands of the powerful are required to generate the power expropriated and exercised by the powerful, then a refusal of cooperation and consent on the part of the subordinate will lead to the disempowerment of the powerful. Successful non-cooperation, open disobedience, militant opposition, passive resistance, the withdrawal or refusal of consent and cooperation on the part of the subordinate not only lead to a reduction, neutralization or destruction of the power exercised by the powerful but more importantly, generate increased power which can be exercised by the subordinate themselves to achieve their own self-defined goals.

For, example, an economic boycott organized by the subordinate, that is, where members of the subordinate participate in refusing to have certain commercial dealings with the powerful, substantially demonstrates how the subordinate may empower themselves and simultaneously disempower the powerful and change the relations and structure of social power."

2 Yr. Old Latino Child Hospitalized after Oxnard Cops Terrorize Wrong Family in No Knock Raid - Cops Threw Grenade into Bedroom 

From [HERE] A 2-year-old Latino boy was burned and hospitalized after police threw an explosive device directly into his room during a “no-knock” raid on the wrong home, despite being told by the parents that there was an infant in the room, according to a lawsuit.

Jose and Paulina Salinas are suing the City of Oxnard and its police department, seeking damages for assault, battery, trespass, false imprisonment and infliction of emotional distress. According to Courthouse News, in their lawsuit, the Salinas family says they were sleeping on April 16, around 4 a.m., when they were awakened by scuffling footsteps and vehicles outside their condominium.

When Jose Salinas drew the curtains of his bedroom window, he saw the barrel of a policeman’s gun pointed at him. Police broke the front windows of the home and set off three smoke bombs. Police then crashed through the front door with guns drawn, yelling, “Get down and put your hands to your head!

With laser-mounted guns pointed at them, Paulina and Jose Salinas were handcuffed and put to their knees. Their 10-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son were shoved into a corner.

As police approached one of the bedrooms, Paulina Salinas and her two older children told officers there was a 2-year-old in the room. Police ignored them, told them to cover their ears, and threw a smoke bomb into the room as 2-year-old Justin Salinas stood near the door.

When the smoke bomb detonated, shrapnel from the blast hit Justin in the foot, causing first-degree burns and glass cuts. The 2-year-old was brought the the hospital and treated for his injuries. [MORE]

When Manipulation Fails They Use Force: Racist Suspect Governor Triples the Number of National Guard Troops to Occupy Ferguson

From [HERE] Aiming to head off another night of looting and arson, racist suspect Governor Jay Nixon on Tuesday tripled the number of National Guard troops deployed to this St. Louis suburb, taking a harder line against the violence that erupted after a grand jury declined to indict Darren Wilson, a white police officer, in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager. 

At an afternoon news conference, Mr. Nixon said that he had ordered the deployment of 2,200 National Guard soldiers to Ferguson. “Last night, criminals intent on lawlessness and destruction terrorized this community,” he said. “What they’ve gone through is unacceptable.”

Earlier, the white Mayor James W. Knowles III of Ferguson criticized the governor for not deploying the Guard quick enough to save some of the businesses that burned. Police officers were overwhelmed by the wave of violence Monday night after the grand jury’s decision was announced.

Jon Belmar, the white St. Louis County police chief, said demonstrators had set fire to at least a dozen buildings in and around Ferguson, and he estimated that he had heard about 150 gunshots. None of the shots, he said, were fired by the police. [MORE]

White Domination-Black Subordination

The manipulation of Afrikan American political and economic attitudes by the White ruling elite is designed to effectively secure, enhance and exercise power while not appearing to do so; while appearing to provide Blacks with power or options equal to that or those of Whites. The point of this type of manipulation is to win the acceptance by Blacks of the legitimacy of White power, its moral Integrity, its legitimating ideology, and the acceptance by Blacks of their obligation to obey the directive of White power while believing their obedience to be expressive of their own free and moral will. Only by basing their behavioral orientation on their own Afrikan history, culture, values, interests, consciousness and identity can Blacks prevent their behavioral manipulation by self-serving Whites and act under the influence, of their own self-generated enhanced power.

The Powerless Speak Out, Respond to Call for Law and Order [the Same Law & Order that Hides the Everyday War Against Blacks & Latinos] 

From [HERE] Thousands of people flooded city streets from Los Angeles to New York late Monday in passionate — but initially peaceful — protest of a mostly white grand jury's decision not to indict a white police officer who killed an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri. People have every right to be angry at this racist bullshit masquerading as "justice" perpetuated by white people. For the time being the protestors have suspended their belief in this racist system. Our belief in this system is its power! When coercion fails force will be used. [MORE] But what will go on after people calm down? 

For the most part protestors struck out at property and not at each other or at cops. However, an officer with the University City Police Department was shot Monday night. That shooting happened after 11:00 p.m. near the intersection of Canton and Lamb.  The officer was taken to a nearby St. Louis hospital.  Their condition was not known. It's not known if the shooting was connected to protests in Ferguson.

For a time Monday night, protesters blocked Interstate-44 through St. Louis until police were able to herd them back and allow traffic to get through again. But that wasn’t the only thing rioters stopped. Air traffic was delayed for some, other flights were diverted and not allowed to land at Lambert Field. [MORE]

A Walgreens (above) in Ferguson, Missouri, was reportedly set on fire after protests erupted on Monday night. Interstate 44 was also reportedly shut down, a McDonald’s was looted, a Little Caesars was set on fire, and a Dollar Tree store was looted. Photos uploaded to Twitter showed the store on fire with smoke pouring out of it. [MORE]

 

Protestor tells Black Android, "Fuck CNN." 

Anonymous protester approached provocative Fox News reporter Steve Harrigan, yelled "Fuck you and fuck Fox News" then disabled the live TV camera. [MORE]

We already know the Republicans are the White Party. But Non-whites, especially Black folks should witness that all the players indirectly involved in this racist episode were white Democrats: Governor Jay Nixon, U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill, State Attorney General Chris Koster, St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay and Prosecutor Robert McCulloch. Also 27 of the city's 28 Aldermen are Democrats. At the federal level, in Missouri's 1st congressional district, a Republican has not represented a significant portion of St. Louis in the U.S. House since 1953. [MORE] These folks plus a Black President and Attorney General have not helped Black people solve its problem of racism/white supremacy, which is the cause of police brutality, the unequal administration of "justice" and so many other things plaguing non-white communities. It is time to do something else about our powerless reality and begin asking questions such as how can we get some power to solve our problems? How can we neutralize white power? How do we stop white people from practicing racism? What kind of consciousness is needed for the task? How do we begin to confront the system of white supremacy/racism?

Ferguson Prosecutor Lied. Judge Never Agreed to Release Grand Jury Records if there is No Indictment  

Racist Suspect Prosecutor Full of Deception. From [HERE] The wait continues for the mostly white St. Louis County grand jury decision in the Michael Brown shooting case, but on Sunday KSDK-TV learned that the evidence the panel is hearing may not be released after all.

If white Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson is indicted in the shooting death of Brown, evidence presented to the grand jury would not be released because it would be used during the trial. In an interview a few weeks ago, St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch said the judge agreed that the records would be made public if there is no indictment.

"If there is not an indictment returned in any case, then the case is closed and the records are closed. Unless the judge orders that they be opened. So in this case, we have asked the judge if there is no indictment returned, and no charge on anything, we have asked the judge, and she has agreed, that the records will be made public," McCulloch said.

But Sunday, St. Louis County Director of Judicial Administration Paul Fox released a statement saying that St. Louis County Circuit "Judge Whittington has entered no such order or made no such agreement."

According to the letter "If the Grand Jury returns a no true bill, the Judge anticipates the Court will receive requests for Grand Jury records. Some of those requests will require the Court to analyze the need for maintaining secrecy of the records with the need for public disclosure of the records.

The Court had done no such analysis. In order to analyze the need for maintaining secrecy, the Court will need information it does not have. It does not know the names of the witnesses who have testified before the Grand Jury and it has not heard the testimony or read transcriptions of testimony.   The Court has not seen documents or material presented to the Grand Jury.

The Court awaits the decision of the Grand Jury. The Court will thereafter be guided by the law in its response to requests for Grand Jury records. The quote attributed to me in the Post-Dispatch this morning is not accurate." [MORE]

"Barbaric Beyond Measure": White Prosecutor Continues to Block Black Man's Release from Prison. Murder Conviction Overturned 3 Times - Albert Woodfox held in Solitary Confinement Over 30 Years

From [HERE] A federal appeals court has upheld a lower court ruling ordering Louisiana to release Albert Woodfox, a former Black Panther who has spent more than 40 years in solitary confinement, longer than any prisoner in the United States. Woodfox and the late Herman Wallace, another prisoner of the "Angola 3," were convicted of murdering a guard at Angola Prison. The Angola 3 and their supporters say they were framed for their political activism. A federal judge ruled last year that Woodfox should be set free on the basis of racial discrimination in his retrial. It was the third time Woodfox’s conviction has been overturned, but prosecutors have negated the victories with a series of appeals. Thursday’s ruling by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the order for Woodfox’s release in a unanimous decision. But prosecutors could still delay its enforcement with more appeals to keep Woodfox behind bars. [MORE]

Racist suspect Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell (in photo above), on Friday, said he disagrees with the ruling and his staff "remain committed" to upholding the conviction. [MORE]

Four Decades of Solitary in Louisiana. From [HERE] Richard Nixon was president when Albert Woodfox landed in solitary confinement, along with another inmate, both convicted of the 1972 murder of a Louisiana prison guard named Brent Miller.

Mr. Woodfox is still there.

Now 67 years old, he has maintained his innocence of the murder from the start. He has been held in isolation longer than any prisoner in the United States, and perhaps in the nation’s history.

For 23 hours a day — 23 hours and 45 minutes on weekends — he sits by himself in a closet-size, windowless cell. He eats all his meals alone. He has no access to the prison’s educational or religious activities. His contact with visitors is extremely limited.

Over the past year, he has endured visual body cavity searches up to six times a day, even though he is under constant supervision and is shackled and accompanied by guards whenever he is removed.

Mr. Woodfox, who was serving a sentence for armed robbery at the time of the murder, would most likely have been released from solitary many years ago if he had pleaded guilty to the murder. But he has consistently denied any involvement, believing that he was targeted because of his political activism as a member of the Black Panther Party.

#TangoDown: Anonymous Shuts Down Cleveland City Govt. Website Over Police Shooting of 12 Year old Black Boy - Cops Refuse to Release Name of Killer Cop and Video of Incident 

From [HERE] The Hacktivist collective Anonymous have launched an attack on the official site for the City of Cleveland after 12-year-old Temir Rice was shot dead by local police for carrying a BB gun. Police refuse to release the name of the cop who killed the boy and have not released video of the incident. Deputy Chief Ed Tomba said video showing the Saturday shooting exists, but he didn't say where the video comes from.[MORE]

Tomba said the video is not available for journalists now because it's part of an active investigation, which the department plans to complete in 90 days and send to the district attorney.

In a video released on Monday, Anonymous lambasts Cleveland City Police, whose alleged inability to train their officers properly is said to have led to the tragedy. [see story below for details.]

“This rookie officer apparently was not trained. The police department he works for is to blame for this lack of appropriate training. Officers are equipped with many non-lethal options such as Taser guns. Why did he not use a Taser on this child? Shooting him in cold blood was not necessary with these non-lethal options available,” a statement from the collective said.

The group further questioned whether the police were so “moronic” that they were unable to use anything other than lethal force to deescalate the situation. They called the justification that the police “feared for their lives” ludicrous, as Rice was only 12-years-old and armed with an air soft gun. (When police arrived apparently the toy gun was not even visible and he was playing at a playground.) The message concluded with a vow to target all municipalities whose “ignorant” and poorly-trained officers pose a threat to society.

“Police of the United States you will learn in due time once Anonymous has shut down your sites that we will not stand for your ignorant, untrained rookie cops.”

On Monday, Twitter was awash with the hashtag #TangoDown, the telltale sign of an Anonymous-affiliated attack. Many of the tweets provided links to the official site for the city of Cleveland, which was inaccessible at the time of writing.

White People and their Games: 12 Year Old Black Boy with toy gun Killed by Cleveland Cops after White Man tells 911 "there is a Guy with a pistol pointing it at everybody... like Desert Storm"

 

(unexcited utterance) White man calmly calls 911 talking about "Hi. How are you. [pause] I'm sitting in the park and there is a guy here pointing his gun at everybody. He is wearing a camouflage hat, like Desert  Storm." The caller knew what could happen, that's probably why he called. Listen for yourself. The actual radio run to police from dispatch was for a grown man wearing camouflage with a real gun pointing it at people in a public space. As in Nazi Germany, with regard to non-whites, especially Black males, White people function as an auxiliary police force. If Anything you do makes them feel  uncomfortable they will call the cops on you. Watch your back. Nazis were vastly outnumbered and there was no way they could have pulled off genocide without the help of German citizens [the non-Jewish ones]. 

From [HERE] Police determined that a 12-year-old Black boy was shot by a white officer outside a Cleveland rec center Saturday when they claimed he reached into his waistband for an airsoft gun. He was shot in the abdomen and taken to MetroHealth Medical Center with serious injuries. After surgery he died from his injuries on Sunday morning. [MORE]

Police say the weapon resembled a semi-automatic pistol. They said the orange safety indicator had been removed. They did release a photo of that airsoft gun to the media. The white media is very impressed with the toy gun - which was not visible to cops when they arrived. 

According to police, two officers responded to the scene and ordered the boy to raise his hands. They claimed he refused and reached for a gun in his waistband. The toy gun was in his waistband, he was not holding in it. An officer fired two shots, striking the boy once, officials said. [MORE] The police chief said there was no confrontation between the boy and the cops and he did not threaten the officers with the gun or otherwise. See video above.  In other words, when the white cops arrived the boy was playing, no gun was visible and there was no danger that was imminent.

Union officials (more white folks) say the officers acted responsibly, and the boy had what appeared to be a gun. One officer involved was taken to Fairview Hospital for treatment of an injury to his ankle. The Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office (more white folks) was on scene for the investigation. [MORE]

Wisconsin Police Force Investigates Itself & Concludes that Violent Arrest of Black Woman was Definitely Consistent with Policy of Racism 

What is white collective power? From [HERE] The Superior Police Department has wrapped up their internal investigation into the actions of Officer George Gothner following a controversial arrest in the Keyport Lounge parking lot.

Following a month long internal investigation, the Superior Police Department has determined that Officer George Gothner's use of force was justified following the violent arrest of Natasha Lancour in the Keyport Lounge parking lot on January 5. Also, last month a white Bayfield County prosecutor decided that no charges would be filed against the white cop. [MORE]

The internal investigation focused on two issues:

First- was the force used making the arrest reasonable and consistent with policy? More on the policy of white supremacy [HERE]. 

Superior Police Chief Charles LaGesse says the use of force was both reasonable and consistent with the policies of the department and the training provided by the State of Wisconsin. He says the finding is based on a review of the arrest conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Justice.

R.I.P. Marion Barry: 'Mayor for Life' was Hated by Whites because He Tried to Help Black People

From [HERE] Marion S. Barry Jr., a sharecropper’s son and civil rights pioneer who became a flamboyant and polarizing mayor of Washington, went to prison on cocaine charges and then recaptured City Hall in one of the most improbable comebacks in the history of American politics, died early Sunday. He was 78.

His death was confirmed in a statement from his family.

Mr. Barry died at United Medical Center in Southeast Washington just hours after he was released from Howard University Hospital on Saturday. He admitted himself on Thursday, saying that he did not feel well, although no specific medical problems were mentioned.

Mr. Barry’s spokeswoman, Latoya Foster, told the ABC affiliate in Washington that he “was just feeling a little under the weather, and you know, he doesn’t take anything for granted, so he said, ‘Let me just check things out and make sure everything is O.K.’ ”

He underwent surgery for prostate cancer in 1995, had a kidney transplant in 2009 and was treated for high blood pressure, diabetes and anemia. White supremacy/racism was the cause of his death. 

Mr. Barry’s death comes nearly six months after he released his autobiography, “Mayor for Life: The Incredible Story of Marion Barry Jr.”

In an interview with The New York Times shortly after the book’s release, Mr. Barry denied that his personal troubles and run-ins with the law had hindered the progress he sought for the poorest Washington residents.

“I serve as an inspiration for those who are going through all kinds of things,” Mr. Barry said. “Whatever storm they’re going through, they can learn from me.”

Elected mayor four times — in 1978, 1982, 1986 and 1994 — Mr. Barry left the mayor’s office for good early in 1999 and then worked as an investment banker. But politics was never far from his mind. In 2004 he was elected to the District of Columbia Council from a hard-pressed section in Southeast Washington, a district he represented until his death.

White people love to discuss his cocaine possession episode, it is important to them. Marion Barry's possession of crack essentially led to a federal (white people) takeover/control board of D.C. [MORE]  On January 18, 1990, Barry was arrested in a sting operation by the FBI and D.C. Police for crack cocaine use and possession. Barry was charged with three felony counts of perjury, 10 counts of drug possession, and one misdemeanor count of conspiracy to possess cocaine. The criminal trial ended with a conviction for only one count of possession, which had occurred in November 1989, and an acquittal on another. That is, he was not convicted of any charges from the infamous hotel incident. But never mind the actual result, it was and still is a big, big deal to the white media. He was sentenced to 6 months in jail in what was essentially a revenge episode for white folks, angry about the unfiltered Barry's efforts to relieve the suffering of Black people in this system of oppression.

Anonymous Claims to Have Evidence Directly Connecting Darren Wilson & Ferguson Cops to KKK

From [BlackListed News] The hacker collective Anonymous launched #OpKKK and #HoodsOff this past week which took down, and took over, multiple klan websites and social media accounts while exposing numerous Ku Klux Klan members by making their personal information public.

In the process of outing Ku Klux Klan members, Anonymous discovered connections between the Klan and the “We Support Darren Wilson” group.

One of the Darren Wilson rallies was held in Imperial, Missouri, and was rumored to have been organized by the Klan. It’s important to note that this is also allegedly the hometown of Darren Wilson’s girlfriend and fellow Ferguson police officer Barbara Spradling.

Prior to going public with the connection between the KKK and “We Support Darren Wilson” group, the group purged many photos from the rally from their social media pages, most likely in an attempt to obscure the connections between the groups.

This photo showing 3 Klansman at the #DarrenWilson rally has been removed from their FaceBook page #HoodsOff #OpKKK pic.twitter.com/oSa4T5tPx2

— Anon Cop Watch (@AnonCopWatch) November 17, 201

The act of erasing pictures, prior to Anonymous going public with the information, only made Anonymous more suspicious that they were onto something. The scrubbing of information raised their suspicions that perhaps there truly was a connection between Darren Wilson and the KKK.

Then an informant came to Anonymous and described their direct ties to not Darren Wilson himself, but his girlfriend, fellow Ferguson police officer Barbara Spradling. Remember, Spradling is allegedly from the Imperial Missouri area where an alleged KKK supported pro-Darren Wilson rally was held.

The source claimed they had information that directly linked Darren Wilson and the Klan to the events unfolding in Ferguson. While this information was being seriously vetted by Anonymous, and ultimately confirmed, death threats from the Klan started being directed at the hacker collective. Anonymous has since responded to these threats, putting the KKK and Ferguson PD on notice that “We are the law now.

[Its even faker than you thought] The 'Appearance of Justice System.' White People Stand by Waiting for Blacks to React to their Mock "Probable Cause Trial" 

The following article from the NY Times should be considered through the lens of white supremacy/racism. White people are the most provocative people in the world and racists love nothing more than to practice racism and then watch Black people react to their racial stupidity. Expect racism.

After hearing testimony for nearly three months in the death of Michael Brown, the 18-year-old unarmed African-American who was shot by Officer Darren Wilson on a Ferguson, Mo., street on Aug. 9, a St. Louis County grand jury is nearing a decision on whether to bring criminal charges.

Routinely, grand juries are virtual rubber stamps for prosecutors, approving the proposed indictments after hearing from a few witnesses and getting the bare outlines of the incriminating evidence.

But the Ferguson case, laden with incendiary emotions, is anything but routine, and the grand jury proceeding has been highly unusual.

The St. Louis County prosecuting attorney, Robert P. McCulloch, said from the outset that his office would be “presenting absolutely everything” to the grand jury, including eyewitness accounts of the fatal altercation and forensic conclusions that might be diametrically opposed. The proceedings have been prolonged and exhaustive, in some ways more resembling a criminal trial than a normal grand jury hearing and shifting heavy responsibility onto the 12 jurors, nine white and three black, on the panel.

After 40 Years in Solitary Confinement Court says Angola 3 member Albert Woodfox's conviction should be overturned

From [HERE] The 5th Circuit Court of appeals on Thursday, Nov. 20, 2014, overturned [pdf] the conviction of Angola 3 member Albert Woodfox for his alleged involvement in the 1972 murder of prison guard Brent Miller. 

After 40-plus years in solitary confinement, the third and final imprisoned member of the Angola 3, Albert Woodfox, might soon be headed home.

A federal appeals court on Thursday (Nov. 20) upheld a decision to overturn Woodfox's conviction related to the 1972 stabbing of a Louisiana State Penitentiary prison guard, Brent Miller, according to federal court documents.

The decision by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals was unanimous, but the state could still appeal it. Thursday's decision upheld part of District Court Judge James J. Brady's ruling, which found racial discrimination in the selection of the grand jury foreperson in a 1998 retrail of Woodfox's original conviction. 

"Now the struggle will be in the court of public opinion, to try and get the state to resist their... desire to appeal," said Jackie Sumell, a New Orleans activist and friend of Woodfox. 

The state could also re-indict Woodfox and re-try his case. Sumell noted, though, that most --if not all -- the witnesses are dead, and Woodfox now has a team of lawyers from across the country defending him.

Woodfox's possible release could take months or possibly years, depending on if the state files any number of appeals.

NYPD Cops Enter Housing Project with 9mm Guns Drawn on "Routine Check" - Fatally Shoot Unarmed Black Man - then Offered No Medical Assistance 

" They didn’t identify themselves at all. They just shot.” From [HERE] A rookie NYPD officer “accidentally” shot and killed an unarmed African-American man in a staircase in a New York apartment block. It happened as Ferguson is tensely waiting for a grand jury decision on a police officer who shot Michael Brown.

Akai Gurley, 28, and his girlfriend Melissa Butler were entering a staircase on the seventh floor in Pink House project in Brooklyn late Thursday evening when two policemen came down from the eighth floor. Peter Liang and his partner, Shaun Landau were doing a top-to-bottom patrol. Liang, a rookie on probationary assignment, fired a shot in Gurley’s chest without a warning, Butler said.

“They didn’t present themselves or nothing and shot him,” Butler told DNAinfo New York. “As soon as he came in, the police opened the [door to the] eighth-floor staircase. They didn’t identify themselves at all. They just shot.”

Gurley and Butler tried to go down the stairs but reached only the fifth floor where Gurley lost consciousness. There a neighbor called an ambulance. Butler says the policemen did not come to help nor called the ambulance. Gurley, who has a 2-year-old son, was pronounced dead on arrival to hospital.

The New York police commissioner, William J. Bratton, announced that the shooting was accidental and that the victim, Akai Gurley, had done nothing to provoke a confrontation with the officers.

The episode promised to bring scrutiny to a longtime police practice of officers drawing their weapons when patrolling stairwells in housing projects. The shooting occurred in the Louis H. Pink Houses in the East New York neighborhood.
