“I called the cops for beef that I had, they didn’t do a damn thing, telling me to calm down. Getting red in the face and they threaten me with mace!” -Sadat X
I just came across a Fb feed with some of our Black elders and intellectuals debating the issues of Police violence and “Black-on-Black” crime, some were arguing that we needed the police to protect us from crime and homicides. SMH.
There seems to be something we still fail to understand:
The police are not in the Black community to protect Black people from crime, they are they to contain us.
Black dysfunction is central to the preservation of Capitalism and the White majority both materially and psychologically.
They police support the criminogenic system that creates and sustains Black crime and homicides, they don’t oppose it!
So don’t listen to these #NewNegros (especially Black cops) who talk that shit about protecting us from Black criminals, because the cops are criminals, the police are a State Sponsored Street Gang, nothing more.
The police are corrupt, they kill, they traffic in drugs, they shake down innocent people for protection money, they rape and prostitute women, they commit contract killings, they kill or set-up other cops who refuse to “put in work” and join the corruption; every single thing you see the thugs and gang-bangers do the cops do with the support of the State and your tax dollars. So don’t think you need the cops, we don’t we them, we need an end to the oppressive conditions imposed on our people. That’s all we need.
Every single oppressive state, from the Roman Empire, to Nazi Germany, to the Jim Crow South, to the Latin American Dictatorships; every single oppressive and genocidal regime in human history has had the full support of the Police, never has the police sided with justice or the people they always side with corrupt powers, always.
“I never seen the police break a strike by hittin’ the boss with his baton pipe!” – Boots Riley
The police never side with the people, the police don’t serve the people.
So don’t let them tell you that BS about Black people needing the cops to protect us from killers and criminals, because the cops are killers and criminals.
The institution of policing cannot be reformed, so it matter not how good any individuals cop is or isn’t the institution of policing will always serve the same historical purpose and follow the same damn patterns.
