It should come as no surprise to anyone, that Prosecutors would do all in their power to smear a Black person murdered by police, that is par for the course.
And as a consequence, no person of any moral certitude is surprised by the revelation of Jamarcus Glover’s attorney that prosecutors offered a plea deal to Breonna Taylor’s ex-boyfriend mister Glover which required him to implicate the deceased Ms. Taylor as a part of his drug-dealing even after police had murdered her in her own home.
When we talk about the level of lies and deceit, the complex web of collusion within the American so-called criminal justice system, no matter how much we reveal, it does not begin to scratch the surface of the insidious racism of these people.
Jamarcus Glover turned the plea-deal down.
Nevertheless, Glover was arrested the same night Taylor was killed, in a separate raid on an alleged drug house about 10 miles away. Police say they “recovered approximately 119.032 grams (4.2 ounces) of cocaine and over 10 dosage units of opiates,” according to court records. Glover’s attorney, Scott Barton, told NPR that as part of a lengthy plea negotiation, the Jefferson Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office offered Glover a deal that included naming Taylor as a member of his “organized crime syndicate.” Barton said that he no longer has a copy of the initial plea offer but that his client “immediately rejected anything with her name in it.”
“He felt terrible about the whole thing. That’s not a secret. And, you know, any type of plea that had her involved in any way was not going to be acceptable to him,” Barton said (NPR reported).
WDRB-TV in Louisville reported that the July 13 plea offer listed Taylor as a “co-defendant” of Glover’s, even though she had been dead four months. The deal required Glover to acknowledge that he, Taylor, and others engaged in organized crime by trafficking large amounts of drugs “into the Louisville community.”
Had Glover accepted the deal, the station reported, Glover could have seen his 10-year prison sentence drop to only probation.
Such is the level of duplicity & lies that prosecutors are prepared to engage in to cover the asses of police who murder Black people.
Even with the technological advancements today that allows the eyes of the world to be trained on these mostly white counties across America, and despite all that is happening in major cities as well, Prosecutors continue to engage in criminality and unethical lying and other crimes to cover for police, despite drawing a salary from the public.
This is the kind of reprehensible corruption that African-Americans have suffered under from public officials who have a duty to be fair and just. Instead, these irredeemably corrupt white officials continue on, despite the cries against inherent racism and police violence.
The sad irony in this latest despicable iteration of America’s racist justice system, is that even if Breonna Taylor was involved in drug dealing, would the monsters who broke her door down be justified in putting eight bullets (8) in her body, and dozens more into her apartment?
The answer is no!
The calls to defund the police seem rather radical to white people, even among those who are supposedly less racist, (As if there is such a thing). Unfortunately, the calls to defund the police do not go nearly far enough. The entire criminal justice system is a farce that preys on Black citizens and protects whites.
I am ashamed to admit that in utter ignorance, I once admired this monstrous ignobility.
