Sgt. Thomas McVicar of the Jersey City Police Department shot 22 year old Kwadir Felton, leaving him blind, after Kwadir pulled a gun on him, he claims. Kwadir Felton denied the accusation, stating that he doesn’t even carry guns.
“I don’t understand!” Felton yelled at a police officer before his mother was removed from the courtroom. “You didn’t have to shoot me in the head for no reason! You trying to charge me with something I didn’t do!”
i want u to look at this Black man’s face in his response to the verdict. that is the pain of all Black people who are enslaved by this corrupt racist system.
That is the face of more than 500 years of racist and capitalist oppression against Black people. the face of all Black people who have been shut out from this unjust system and either imprisoned, tortured, killed, or all three.
that is the face Trayvon would have had if he were here to see that Zimmerman was found not guilty. shit, if Trayvon were alive HE’d be the one charged guilty.
