A Black Lives Matter Manifesto By : Staff Reporting

#BlackLivesMatter. Officer Wilson or an Officer Pantaleo's didnt wake up on the mornings in question seeking out the controversy that they find themselves in...We dont believe that.

We do believe the racist system that they have taken an oath to is wrong. The same system that allows guns and drugs on our streets unabated with young Black mercenaries creating mayhem has produced Officer Wilson and Officer Pantaleo.

We don't have to be a perfect community to stand against this particular wrong. Attacking their greed during the height of their "Xmas" season will send a message. The irony is we require police protection and the majority are doing their work correctly, but we require agencies that are responsive to the law-abiding members of our communities; #BlackLivesMatter and our dignity matters.

A dialogue about armored patrols and security zones being responsive and representational of the community is a part of the meaningful discussions to have. If business is disrupted and people begin to organize and vote I'll bet the plutocrats will begin to summon their lynch men to change the behavior and/or policies that are killing unarmed individuals.

We can talk until we're blue in the face and lifeless, but actions made a difference in the 50s and 60s. #ATTACKTHEIRGREED!
