And yes, I know, black men use other black men for target practice damn near every day. But if we can't trust the po po to do the right thing where are we as a society? Thugs are going to be thugs. We need to lock them all up and throw away the keys. But who is going to uphold the law if those we train to protect us do the opposite?
"Jack Lamar Roberson, 43, was gunned down by Waycross, Georgia police on October 4 after his family called 911 for an ambulance due to issues with his diabetes, First Coast News reports.
Waycross police officers claim they responded to a report of attempted suicide and were told that Roberson was combative.
Upon arrival, Roberson allegedly “lunged” at the officers with two “weapons” and refused to drop them. That’s when they fired, claims Police Chief Tony Tanner.
Roberson’s family tells a different story.

“He didn’t have nothing in his hands at any time or period at all before they came, any time while they were here, anything. They just came in and shot him. He didn’t say nothing, the police didn’t say nothing, anything, it was like a silent movie. You couldn’t hear anything, all you could hear were the gun shots go off and I seen them going into his body and he just fell down,” cried Alcia Herron, Roberson’s fiancé.
Herron said she called 911 to call an ambulance for Roberson. She said she was worried about medication he took for his diabetes, but instead of paramedics, officers arrived at the home on Reed Street." [Source]Of course the po po had a different story.
"The officers were en route about 4:30 p.m. to 1013 Reed St. to a suicide threat when they were updated that the man had become combative and had damaged items in the home, Tanner said.
When the officers entered the residence, Jack Lamar Roberson started toward them “aggressively armed with two items used as weapons,’’ Tanner said.
The officers retreated and yelled repeatedly for Roberson to stop and drop the weapons, Tanner said.
The officers retreated as Roberson gained ground on them and raised one of the “weapons in a threatening manner,’’ whereupon the officers fired to prevent their being assaulted, Tanner said."
You Negroes better be careful when you call 911. The family said that they "couldn't hear anything", but I bet those police officers could see.
Finally, a bunch of truckers are planning a rally around D.C. and they plan to slow down the D.C. beltway and arrest congressmen. Nice.
Nothing says red blooded American good ole boy like a trucker. The irony is, of course, that they got this brilliant idea from those "wimpy" French dudes.
One of the things that they are enraged about is President Obama. Go figure. The guys and gals who drive on roads and bridges for a living are mad at the guy who has been pushing for reinvesting in America's infrastructure; not the people in Washington who have been holding up the funding for such things.
"Enraged by low wages, fuel prices, regulations, the government shutdown, the debt ceiling, President Obama and "the corruption that is destroying America," the "Truckers Ride for the Constitution" aims to tie up three lanes of Interstate 495 circling the nation's capital, with big rigs traveling 55 mph, an organizer told U.S. News & World Report.
Last week, one of the promoters said 3,000 truckers had said they planned to participate in the holiday-weekend rally. Two convoys reportedly will leave from the Doswell Truck Stop in Doswell, Va.
The "general strike" seeks to enlist sympathetic motorists — and will let them pass if they display the group's calling card: T2SDA, which stands for "Truckers to Shut Down America," the original name.
The group behind the rally, "Ride for the Constitution," said in a news release that the "stage is now set for what we now consider the last peaceful defensive stand in a war that has been declared by Wall Street, Washington, and the Whitehouse upon the American people."
I smell the Koch Brothers.
Anyway, I feel for you hard working law abiding citizens around D.C. who will be trying to go about your business when this trucker revolution rolls into town.
It can't be cool to live in the nation's capital these days. You are living with mass shootings, a government shutdown, and a football team with an offensive name that stinks. Now you have one big Smokey and the Bandit movie.
"What We're dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law."
Where is Sheriff Buford T. Justice when you need him?
