“Another officer approached Mr. Mack and ordered him to get on the ground. Witnesses saw Mr. Mack comply with these orders and quickly get on his knees and place his hands on his head. Soon after, at least five other officers, including Lieutenant Michael Smith, arrived at the scene after responding to a call for back-up.
Even though Mr. Mack was on his knees and subdued, witnesses report that officers violently assaulted Mr. Mack. Officers beat Mr. Mack with batons and fists, striking his head, face, and body.
The correctional officer who initially got Mr. Mack to submit to arrest tried to intervene and attempted to pull the officers off of Mr. Mack and put himself between Mr. Mack and the assaulting officers. This officer was threatened by other guards and forced to retreat. Lieutenant Smith was heard to say that the guards were going to kill Mr. Mack.”
The recent events taking place across America today are a clear example of what the Criminal Justice System is really about. But the mentality that produces this behavior isn’t new. The War against Young Black Males is ingrained in the foundation of this System. Over the years, the methods have altered yet the objective is the same. A Tree, The Gallows, Life Sentences, Shooting us down in the streets, the end game doesn’t change.
How long will we sit back silently watching this System murder away the life and future of our Children? Those hanged and shot down can’t be brought back, but there are thousands of them unjustly trapped inside the bowels of this System that we must fight for.
Economics is the Foundation of this White Supremacist system of Mass Incarceration. If Money is what really Matters to them, then it’s on us to make it understood that #BLACK_LIVES_MATTER!!!
In the black community/hoodz we glorify black on black crimes, we hurt each other without a just cause we are our own reason 4 some of our failures it seems that we are curse with this demon that allow us to love an enjoy violence against our on people,we hurt our women, we hurt our children we are destroying our own race this very day an act as if we dnt even care, i am not being the judge i am simply stateing the facts as i see it, our children our being sent to prison at the young ages of 16,17,18, i see it every day they cant read or write, why is this happening to our race?
