RESEARCH FINDS 7,000 DEATHS OF PEOPLE IN TEXAS CUSTODY

image

By: Leon Kwasi Kuntuo-Asare

Research from a University of of Texas Institute in Austin, Texas discovered that nearly 7,000 people died while in law enforcement custody. The research showed an average of 623 deaths a year over a ten year period, with an increase in deaths in 2015 with 683 deaths of people while in custody. Over 90% of the people who died had not been charged with a crime. Reportedly 70โ„… of the deaths were determined to be caused by natural causes, 11โ„… were determined to be by suicide and 8% in what law enforcement call justifiable homicides.

The research project director Amanda Woog, a postdoctoral fellow at the institute,ย told The Texas Tribuneย researchers hope to find more information on each specific death.

โ€œWe can’t have an informed conversation about who’s dying at the hands of police or who’s dying in jails if we don’t literally know who’s dying and how they’re dying,โ€ Woog said. โ€œI think this information can help us get to the bottom causes of mortality in the criminal justice system and with that lead us to solutions.โ€

NEW NORTH CAROLINA LAW PREVENTS PUBLIC FROM SEEING POLICE CAM FOOTAGE

image

By: Leon Kwasi kuntuo-Asare

In a new strategy to prevent the possible crimes of police officers from being seen by the public and creating  backlash against police brutality and racism, that can be used as motivation  by  grassroots activists like members of the Black Lives Matter movement, who have been protesting the recent killings of black men in Louisianaย  ย andย Minnesotaย ย ย . Pat McCroryย  the governor of North Carolina signed a new bill limiting who can see the footage from police cams.

image

Whereas, in the past video footage from police cams would of been considered public information, this new North Carolina Law limits who can see the video to the people who are in the video, and even that request by a person in the video can still be denied and would have to be taken to superior court. This law without a doubt, will hurt the people most affected by police violence and that’s poor people of color, who will find it more difficult to hire a good lawyer to fight for their  right to see the video, assuming they are not slained like Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

OPEN LETTER FROM THE STRUGGLE : THE LANGUAGE OF THE UNHEARD

image

The last two days when I see the senseless and easily avoidable shooting of two black men ( Alton Sterling and Philando Castile) or see several police killed and wounded , while policing a rally against police brutality and racism, that was relatively peaceful up into the point of the shooting.

It reminds of the Martin Luther King Jr. Statement, that conservative media purposely omits from MLK’s legacy and that’s “Riots is the voice of the unheard.”

Obviously, one wrong does not correct another wrong, but hurt people hurt people. You can’t kill more unarmed black people than white mass shooters and expect that everyone will turn the other cheek like the great Martin Luther King Jr. Especially when you have seen this ridiculous movie so many times from Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, etc. And you know how it all ends, no conviction, even if caught on camera.

“MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. DEMANDING U.S. GOVERNMENT GIVE REPARATIONS.”

BY: LEON KWASI KUNTUO-ASARE

In a speech Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. details how he plans to get reparations from the United States government, a few weeks later, he would be assassinated.

Note: In 1999 the King family won a civil suit against the federal government, proving the United States took part in the conspiracy to assassinate the great civil rights leader.

Martin Luther King Jr. Quote on Reparations in 1968:

โ€œAt the very same time that America refused to give the Negro any land, through an act of Congress our government was giving away million of acres of land in the West and Midwest, which meant it was willing to undergird its White peasants from Europe with an economic floor.

But, not only did they give them land, they built land grant colleges with government money to teach them how to farm. Not only that, they provided county agents to further their expertise in farming. Not only that, they provided low interest rates in order that they could mechanize their farms. Not only that, today, many of these people are receiving federal subsidies not to farm, and they are the very people telling the Black man that he ought to lift himself by his own bootstraps.

And this is what we are faced with, and this is the reality. Now, when we come to Washington in this campaign, we are coming to get our check.โ€
