Threats vs Action - Bias of Our 'Justice System'

         Our "justice system" today is so screwed up that it puzzles me anyone confides in it. We have reached the stage where you get in more trouble for threatening to do something than actually doing it... in this case, murder.

  Now I hope you know as well as I do the power that your local Nazi's (or enforcement officers, as people like to call them) hold. Police brutality is prevalent in any community whether you realize it or not. Nowadays even trying to cooperate and being respectful could cost you your life; so it's best to hope the Nazi that you are dealing with had a good day. Now, it has been taken a step further.

         Here's the official story in case you haven't heard it already. On January 1st, 2009, BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) Police were called to assess a fight on a subway. When the train came to a stop, the police detained certain people. Whether they gained descriptions of who was fighting or if they just picked who they pleased is yet to be revealed to me. Oscar Grant, among the detainees, was reportedly resisting at which point police placed him face down onto the floor. Two police were specifically 'on' him. One with his knee on Oscar's neck/head and the other near his back. Here's where it gets crazy: one officer, Johannes Mehserle, found the need to take out his gun and shoot Oscar in the back. Let's see it on video.

   Just a note: If you're at work or in a public place, this video does have yelling and plenty of expletives.
