Policing Our Communities

Sitting in my little box and thinking outside of it, I find myself, in spirit, able to reach– 2Pac, Geronimo Pratt, George Jackson, General Mao, Nat Turner, Assata Shakur, Harriet Tubman– legends of the struggle, freedom fighters. I see my future in their struggle, and my struggle in their past; making us one in the same.

More than a year ago I wrote about the avoidable deaths and brutal murders of Trayvon Martin, Renisha McBride and others. Since then there have been more killings carried out by the very hands sworn to serve and protect. I believe there is an agenda and encourage you to become familiar with Executive Order 11490. Look how the media portrayed the killing of Michael Brown. The propaganda was “white officer kills black teen.” This was repeatedly highlighted and promoted by every TV and radio station. A close comrade of mine is devastated each time one of these killings occurs and it reinforces his position of armed struggle. In my opinion this reaction is emotional and perpetuates what we disagree with- senseless violence. I have a saying that goes “since man (humanity) is the total sum of all his thinking, he must demonstrate in action only that which he expects from another, and expect from another only that which he is willing to demonstrate.” I strive to exemplify the qualities and characteristics I expect from others. It is very sad that we have fallen so far from morality that we cannot even see the darkness we are in. It is like the human concept is reversed. In the Circle 7 (Moorish Koran) it speaks about the shame and glory being misplaced. Chapter 44:5 reads, “He who begetteth a man, hideth his face, but he who killeth a thousand is honored.”

I am no saint, but I strive to take the time to evaluate and reevaluate and inner-relate. I see the underlying principle why the police powers work. It is because the people allow it to work. When the fundamental mechanism of peoples’ trust fails to function you get civil war, which I believe is already a subtle reality. In my opinion, it is the fault of the central government when the people lose trust in the police. But when that trust is lost people must establish that trust elsewhere. It is not the cops who serve and protect our communities, it is the trust that we instill in them that serves and protects our communities. The question then becomes, where do we place that trust? Where do we invest that faith? That trust and faith must be a shared interest. I tell my mom all the time, “don’t concern yourself with people who don’t have the same concerns as you.” She says, “Okay, dad.” LOL. Community must be common unity; unity for a common cause, interest, or goal.
