Since this whole movement started, so many of us have come together to fight for the truth. Whether it made us hated or loved we were all here for the same reason, seeking justice for Jahar but, lately no one can seem to get along. I may not know the reasons why but, I do know a pretty good reason why we should put all of that behind us. There’s a kid a 19 year old kid sitting in solitary confinement probably wondering if he’ll ever see his family again. If he’ll ever feel the sun on his skin, the comfort and joy of having his friends around. If he’ll ever have a family of his own one day, and yet some of you make a mockery out this and argue about petty little things that shouldn’t even matter. Right about now this kid needs our help more than ever so don’t just give up so easily. Yes I know there are haters out there who are doing everything they possibly can to make you feel like crap but who cares about them!!! We shouldn’t be focusing our energy on people who don’t matter to us. If they aren’t going to help you put up flyers, spread the word, or simply support you in what you are doing then they should be the least of your worries. Hit the block button and get back to what really matters. All this fighting and deactivating over fights is just hurting someone who deserves justice right along with the victims. I mean seriously we’ve come all this way together and been through so much name calling and threats and harassment that we can’t just give up now. Now if you still want to to leave because you think it’s a joke then by all means go, you’re always welcome to come back whenever but don’t leave because of petty things. You’re just proving to all the haters that we were too weak to make a change for the better. Don’t prove them right.
P.s. Sorry for this small rant but, too many people are starting to give up and I can’t stand to see so many people throw so much hard work away.
Reni posted this photo of Ibragim today. It’s low quality but I don’t have the software to make it better on this computer :(
Today, Hassan Shibly of CAIR Florida said that he met and talked with a reporter outside the home where Ibragim Todashev was shot and killed while unarmed by an FBI agent after hours of interrogation. When asked about the ongoing investigation he said “Yes…stay tuned.” There may be updates coming soon.
Did anybody catch the Rachel Maddow segment on Ibragim tonight? Going to try to find it and post it. She seems to think the NPR coverage will bring Ibragim’s case the national attention it should have received all along.
This is Jeff Ashton’s (Florida State Attorney) email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Take a few minutes out of your day to send him an E-mail inquiring about Ibragim’s investigation. It is important that he knows that people have not simply forgotten about this but we are still waiting for answers. It doesn’t have to be wordy or elaborate, simply ask him where the investigation is and when answers can be expected. It has been months and Ibragim’s family has not heard a thing.
SUPPORTERS IN FLORIDA (or anyone willing to make the drive to Orlando)
CAIR-FL is planning on holding a major event on the one year anniversary of Ibras death, Thursday May 22nd. At the event they will be releasing major findings currently unknown to the public. There will be media present. I know this is last minute but it would be great if some of you guys could show up in support. More details will be posted as soon as they become available but for now all that is known is that it will be on the 22nd which is in two weeks.
