“In the wake of Sunday’s police killing of Charleena Lyles, an African-American mother who called the police for assistance and ended up dead, the idea of the Jewish Federation carrying through this award is especially appalling,” reads the petition. “The argument that the Police Department may work with the Jewish community effectively on other matters is, at this point, completely overshadowed by the police killing in our community of yet another Black person.”
Listened to the audio released by the SPD on Charleena Lyles. 100 pound loving and protective, pregnant mother of several children who called the police because someone stole one of her kids XBOX. They complain all the way up to the door, with absolute malicious intention and within ten minutes, BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM, so many shots fired in such rapid order I couldn’t count them fast enough. And her kids were home, right? Right. They knew that walking in.
Have to ask where they find these guys. They could not possibly have made themselves appear any less than hulking racist cowardly murdering idiots. The only possible way to make them look worse is to show the body cam footage. Where is it.
I mean after John T , in two minutes notice the woman walking across the street. She hears and sees it and cries out… Did you just shoot him? He didn’t even do anything! The murderer screams at her, Mam, he wouldn’t drop the knife… What an idiot. First of all the man was hearing impaired, secondly he was a well loved Native Totem Pole Carver! And after all the investigations, the justice dept, the SPD trying to sue the feds over the recommendations and the new imposed rules, regs, training. All for nothing it seems. Like trying to teach a pig how to sing.
Reminds me of Jesse James Mish, out here on the island. Jesse was mentally unstable and they shot at him over 15 times and missing every single shot. Oh they were angry, went on a man hunt, sent helicopters. Jesse wasn’t armed. Jesse was upset that he owed Sandy $30.00 and was trying to buck up firewood into his pick up to pay her. That’s all. Oh the police were so angry. Why? Jesse lived, he was lucky. A well loved high school wrestling champ. The cop went absolutely nuts when Jesse backed his little pick up into the squad car. BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM, repeat 15 times.
I cried last night talking with Jon, honey, they would shoot me also for depression and post concussion, right in front of our kids. They would, without a doubt, and honey you know it. We were instructed to call the fire dept and flag the house for asthma and mental health, so an aid car would be sent instead of hot head cops they send to the island to cool off. I’ve suffered psychosis, after RJ died, I thought he was in the house with me. I was even talking to him in front of people. I was like, he’s right there, hiding in the pantry, can’t you see him? Ohhh, you can’t see him, because that’s not him, because he died. I needed meds, I recovered.
It’s like when Leah and I were at this gas station and this woman was having a melt down and with good reason. The attendant was like, GTFO, I’m calling the cops. I looked at the attendant and said, Ok, you gotta do what you gotta do, but please, she’s obviously not dangerous, please call an aid car instead so they don’t shoot her in your store.
I’m just glad Evergreen State didn’t allow the police onto the campus during the student protests, no matter how ugly. Didn’t like the behaviors and the bullying of the professor but THANK GOD the president of the school stayed cool.
