Living in a State of WTF

December 9, 2014 at 1:42 am (Uncategorized)

It seems I can’t turn on the TV or read the news without a WTF moment: The murder of Michael Brown and the failure to deal; the murder of Eric Garner and another failure to charge; the Police drive-by-execution of Tamir Rice, and now stories surface that the cop who shot Akai Gurley texted his union rep instead of calling it in (or better yet calling an ambulance!) as Gurley lay dying. WTF seems almost mild.

To expect “justice” is to be disappointed. But even a casual observer can’t help but be shaken at the brazenness with which these killings have been carried out, the perpetrators secure in the knowledge, they will neither be charged or held responsible.

A friend pointed out this article at Metamute to me and it’s of some interest: Inextinguishable Fire: Ferguson and Beyond
