Today, after the murderer of Philando Castile is free and clear, the county released this horrendous dash cam video of the execution of Philando.
This video, combined with the video taken from inside of the car, was more than enough to convict this man for murder. But this is America - where officers can murder people at will.
And yet so many people will view this video and think or say nothing more. Where the concern? Oh I get it, this doesn’t affect your race, class, or religious systems the way it impacts others. How is this country great when you kill minorities so indiscriminately? This is just another one of the many lies they tell themselves to feel more important and bigger than they actually are.
Any time someone speaks out against Arpaio assholes always come in and say “well maybe people shouldn’t break the law.” They say this when we talk about the conditions of tent city, the human rights violations in there, the racial profiling, the ways that Arpaio disproportionately went after brown people, etc. The answer is always the same “well maybe don’t break the law and none of this will be a problem.”
And these are the SAME FUCKING PEOPLE that applaud this decision today. Arpaio broke the law. He’s broken the law dozens of times. He’s broken worse laws than anyone in tent city was in there for. But they don’t give a shit because he’s a powerful white man in law enforcement going after us dirty brown people. None of you cheering for his pardon give a single shit about the law unless it’s POC breaking them. And you certainly don’t give a shit about the law it involves human rights violations and racial discrimination/profiling.
