Hey, Bae. Why you throwing a tantrum, huh? You need a snickers or something? GROW THE FUCK UP.
On Saturday, December 20, 2014, Ismaaiyl Brinsley executed two NYPD officers who were sitting in their car, before killing himself and after shooting his ex-girlfriend – who talked him OUT of suicide – in the stomach.
Clearly, this man was fucking CRAY, so I in no way support his actions. And claiming he did it for Mike Brown and Eric Garner does little for the good fight most of us are fighting. HOWEVER, I need the (selected) NYPD to get them motherfucking two-by-fours out their collective asses.
“He could have killed police anywhere along the line in those 3 1/2 hours in any city in the country, but he chose New York,” Mullins said. “Why? Because the attention to the demonstrations and the lawlessness that was occurring enabled that type of an atmosphere.” – Sergeants Benevolent Association President Ed Mullins
Lemme get this straight. You’re blaming the Mayor – who has supported the NYPD during his first year in office – for the execution of two officers by a man who should have long since been put in a fucking nut house? Because he dared express concern on the heels of #MikeBrown and #EricGarner and support protesting for changes in tactics used when dealing with Black people? Knowing that homie has a BLACK SON AND HAS EVERY RIGHT TO BE SCARED!? How the fuck are we supposed to sympathize with your stupid asses fighting for your ego, when the Mayor is fighting for his motherfucking son?
Skelos also rejected concerns that police tactics have unfairly targeted minorities. ‘I personally don’t believe that,” Skelos said. “I think they do their job. I believe they are color blind when it comes to performing their duties.’ “
Of course you think they’re colorblind! You’re an old, white man in a place of power. You EPITOMIZE White Privilege. It’s people like you that wrote the motherfucking handbook on racism, so that the legal definition would always fall in your favor. It’s easy to claim the police are colorblind cause you don’t have to deal with their racist bullshit all day every day. It’s not YOUR life you’re afraid for. It’s not YOUR son, father, uncle, nephew getting shot. Don’t fucking tell me they’re colorblind. If they were, we’d be having a conversation. Instead, the NYPD is rolling around on the ground, kicking and screaming.
Case in point. This is 12-year-old Tamir Rice. Tamir Rice had the unfortunate stupidity to walk around waving an airsoft, fake gun. Some might say he was looking for trouble, and I might be inclined to agree as I can’t for the life of me understand what the fuck this kid was thinking. That said, WATCH THE MOTHERFUCKING VIDEO. Cops pull up right next to an ‘armed suspect’. Since when is it proper police procedure to stand yourself directly at the opposite end of a gun? Or not use your PA system to order the suspect to ‘drop their weapon and get down on the ground’? Or call in some motherfucking backup? Instead, three cops jump out the car and start shooting, no questions asked. Legit 1.5 seconds from getting out the car, first bullet flies. When the fuck did they have time to try and resolve shit peacefully? Oh, that’s right. THEY DIDN’T. They hopped out the car slangin’. Don’t believe me? Watch the video. I’ll wait.
This is why I cannot take the NYPD’s collective temper tantrum seriously. Even NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton recognizes they’re acting like punk ass babies:
“The funeral is no place for that,” he said. “Come demonstrate outside City Hall. Come demonstrate outside police headquarters, but don’t put on your uniform and go to a funeral and engage in a political action.”
Apparently, by turning their backs on the Mayor during the funeral, they also had to turn their backs on the family. That these motherfuckers went to a funeral to pay respects for their fallen comrades, and managed to turn shit around and make it about their hurt pride surpasses all levels of selfishness. And that they are willing to let this outburst influence their work ethic not only affects the Mayor, but the entire population of New York City. Since when do officers protect their fucking ego over the lives of the citizens they swore an oath to protect? Since when did this become an ‘us vs. them’ type of situation?
“The belief that the [police] department is never wrong, that it never needs redirection or reform, only reverence. This is the view peddled by union officials like Patrick Lynch, the president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association — that cops are an ethically impeccable force with their own priorities and codes of behavior, accountable only to themselves, and whose reflexive defiance in the face of valid criticism is somehow normal.”
I can’t even. None of you deserve to die. But I would think, in light of recent events, you could better understand the fear minorities walk around with on the daily. Only difference: they can’t walk around armed to the max, ready to protect themselves when motherfuckers come calling. Y’all can do better, long as that pride doesn’t fuck up with situation. Stop fighting to be the problem and become part of the solution. Just let it go, Bae.
