If you ever wondered why a police officer Rusten Sheskey, would feel at liberty to put seven bullets into the back of Jacob Blake in Kenosha County Wisconsin at point-blank range, please watch this video of the County Sheriff [David Beth] less than two years ago, in response to an incident including 5 African-Americans teens who were charged with stealing from the Pleasant Prairie Premium Outlets and leading deputies on a chase that ended with a crash.
It is important to reconcile as you view the video, that no one was killed, in fact, no one was physically hurt from the teen’s escapade, though there should be no excuse for what they did. (As we know white teens do not commit crimes).
“They just need to disappear.” Said[David Beth]. Beth wanted the teens to simply disappear, whatever that means, I guess it is up to officers in Kenosha county to decide if errant teens disappear in each individual case.(I suppose if they are black we all know what happens to them).So when they encounter black teens who have committed the unforgivable sin of theft and fleeing they should all disappear.
He then tried to clean up his piehole-full of racist gibberish, by suggesting that they should be warehoused for the remainder of their lives.
David Beth later apologized for his statements, but there is nothing more revealing of a person’s character, or lack thereof, and their true feelings that their spoken words.
What makes this imbecile David Beth, even more reprehensible, if that is at all possible, is that after Kyle Rittenhouse the 17-year-old white vigilante, murdered two people and shot another in the arm almost ripping it clear off. The very same piece of garbage Sheriff David Beth, blamed the victims: “If they did not break the curfew none of this would have happened”.
David Beth also made excuses for the cops who allowed the 17-year-old white terrorist to simply walk right past them after he strolled up to their vehicles arms raised with the rifle he had just murdered two people with slung across his chest.
The murderous punk was all chummy with police. This is a trend across America, heavily armed white supremacists and police are almost indistinguishable. Not just in the way they are dressed, but in the way they are chummy together.
The domestic terrorists are allowed to attack innocent demonstrators, while their colleagues in blue do nothing.
Even when they assault demonstrators their colleagues in blue arrest and further brutalize the victims of their assault.
Kyle Rittenhouse was given bottled water by his colleagues in what looked somewhat like an MRAP vehicle, a cop on the vehicle thanked the would-be murderer profusely for being there, moments before he snuffed out two lives, and permanently altered several others.
He was allowed to pass and go home to the state of Illinois from which he had traveled to commit murder, even though people at the scene repeatedly told police he had just killed two people.
Kyle Rittenhouse walked towards police vehicles, arms raised after killing two people. Police did not tackle him to the ground, they dd not fire a single bullet at the murderer, he simply was allowed to walk past them and leave the state. Not a single shot was fired, even though protesters on the scene yelled at police, telling them that Rittenhouse had just murdered two people and seriously wounded another.
Just in case you ever wondered where the blatant impunity to use force including deadly force on African-Americans comes from, might I remind you it comes from the very top. The moron in chief supports white supremacy, the right-wing supreme court support white supremacy, lower court judges and prosecutors as well. It is a deeply entrenched culture.
Immediately after the cop pumped seven bullets into the back of Jacob Blake the Wisconsin attorney general took to the microphones to say that Jacob Blake was near a knife when the shooting took place, but would not say if Blake was carrying the knife when he was shot.
He would never have made that statement about an incident involving someone white. But what the (State Attorney)Josh Kaul, did was to remove himself as the people’s lawyer and make himself the spokesperson for Rusten Sheskey, the cop who put seven holes into the back of Jacob Blake.
Without skipping a beat, Josh Kaul did two things,(a) he made himself the spokesperson for Rusten Sheskey by his words, and (b) he gave the defense a talking point in the event that Rusten Shenskey is to be held accountable for his crimes.
The statements coming from the mouths of Josh Kaul are in line with the narrative coming from law enforcement, prosecutors, and even members of the judiciary.
We mention these particular groups outside of the general racism that exists on the political right. These groups have the ability to seriously impact and even take life.
Prosecutors in Georgia around the area that Ahmaud Arbery was slaughtered did all they could to bury the crimes of the father and son team who took it upon themselves to murder him. One Prosecutor George Barnhill wrote to a Police Captain Tom Jump, with potential arrest jurisdiction detailing why Travis and Greg McMichael should not face criminal charges“.
Breonna Taylor was murdered in her own home by cops who had no right to ever have entered her home. She was shot eight times and still, not a single cop has been held accountable for her murder.
Investigators and prosecutors are simply waiting for the protest to die down and everyone forgets to announce that they investigated themselves and found no wrongdoing.
Welcome to America, where a police department is investigated by another police department in the same county or state and we are told that the results are fair and impartial.
It appears Travis McMichael, Greg McMichael, and William Bryan were following in “hot pursuit of a burglary suspect with solid first-hand probable cause,” Barnhill wrote. “Arbery initiated the fight. … At that point, Arbery grabbed the shotgun (that Travis McMichael was holding). Under Georgia law, McMichael was allowed to use deadly force to protect himself.”
Another instance of a white prosecutor paid by the people, including the black community’s tax dollars, inserting himself into an investigation and asserting a defense to the criminal assailants benefit against a Black victim.
The whole system is rotten to the core, at all levels of the American Criminal Justice system Racism is a cancerous cyst that daily eats away at the nation’s Black community.
Well after a decade after the FBI warned that white supremacists and other neo-nazi groups were infiltrating police departments, (as if they weren’t already nearly all full-fledged neo-nazi organizations, we are now better able to understand why nothing has been done about it.
Why no one does anything about the heavily armed neo-nazi militias across the country. The police are now fully-fledged a part of these militias, even in blue states.
The entire justice system is a white supremacist defense firm.
