David Brin, the famous scientist, once said, “When it comes to privacy and accountability, people always demand the former for themselves and the latter for everyone else.” John Thune, the US Senator from South Dakota, gave it to us like this, “I just think we need more accountability and more transparency.” Then Henry Cloud, the author, put it where the goats could get it when he spit, “If you are building a culture where honest expectations are communicated and peer accountability is the norm, then the group will address poor performance and attitudes.”
Well playas…it doesn’t look like the Santa Clara Police Union is tryin’ to build a culture where honest expectations are communicated and peer accountability is the norm. On Friday they sent a letter to the San Francisco 49ers tellin’ boyz that they might stop workin’ the teams game due to Colin Kaepernick’s protests on police brutality and for wearin’ the silly pig police socks. The letter specifically stated that if the 49ers don’t discipline Kaep “it could result in police officers choosing not to work at your facilities.”
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! This is the prime example of why folks have a distrust for law enforcement bruh. Colin Kaepernick never said that ALL police officers are killin’ unarmed black folks. He said that he was protestin’ the injustice of some cops killin’ black folks and gettin’ only a paid leave off and not ever bein’ prosecuted for their behavior. So for the police union to threaten to walk off of job at 49ers games is a testament to what most black folks tend to believe.
Everybody and their baby’s momma’s momma keeps hollerin’ that bad cops or racist cops only make up 1 to 2 percent of the cops on the streets. So it’s not all cops that are the problem. Now I’m smart enough to know that bruh! However, if there are only 1 to 2 percent of boyz out here bein’ reckless and mistreatin’ black folks. When are the good cops goin’ to stand up and call their counterparts out? As long as when something foul happens and an entire department or union closes ranks to protect the bad cops then it becomes more than just 1 or 2 percent. If the entire police union is protectin’ the bad cops then the entire union is the problem!!
Every dun in America can see that there is a systemic problem when it comes to police brutality against black men but when nothin’ is bein’ done about it all you do is empower the next fool to shoot and kill a brother. Why? Because he knows that the union and the system has his back.
If my kid acts a darn fool at school (edited version), slaps his teacher and they show me the video tape of it and I simply do nothin’. What is my child goin’ to do the next day at school to the very same teacher? He’s goin’ to stand up in his chair, steal her purse and shoot spit balls at her all day! Why? Because I’ve empowered him to do so by NOT holdin’ him accountable.
When someone sees injustice and says that they want “justice and accountability” and all the freakin’ cops decide to take the side of the dun that wrongfully killed a man at a freakin’ traffic stop, sellin’ loose cigarettes, a boy playin’ with a toy gun etc., etc. etc.. What do you think’s goin’ to happen today when another brother gets pulled over? When a police union ignores the legitimate complaint of wrong doin’ of some police officers then they’re tellin’ you so what? And boyz wanna know why folks don’t trust the police. They’re sayin’ we know that we’ve got some cats workin’ for us that don’t give two dead flies smashed about you are anybody that looks like you and they may just shoot a boy in a minute. But we’re goin’ to ride with them no matter what!
Now it’s not the 1 or 2 percent that you keep tryin’ to tell us about. The Santa Clara Police Union has just added themselves to that number bruh! They’ve got the same attitude as all of the rest of the duns that have wrongfully pulled the trigger on a boy Why? Because by threatenin’ to walk out on the 49ers they are supportin’ the actions of the bad cops. Am I the only dun around here thinkin’ today?
Just because a dun has on the same uniform that you have on doesn’t mean that he’s always right. If a boy is dead wrong then he’s dead wrong!! Colin Kaepernick has every American right to protest the wrong doin’ of police officers around this country by not standin’ for the National Anthem.A song by the way that celebrates in it’s second verse that killin’ of slaves that joined the British troops to fight against America in exchange for their freedom. Do your homework playa before you start hollerin’ about bein’ true American. The same duns hollerin’ about Kaep bein’ disrespectful to America are the same cats that have been utterly disrespectful to our President and his First Lady for the past 8 years.
Until people start holdin’ folks accountable for bein’ racist then nothin’ is ever goin’ to change. If you see someone at work tryin’ to sabotage another employee just because they’re black, latino or gay and you say nothin’. Then you’re just as racist or bigoted. If you hear a friend talkin’ reckless and crazy about race and you say nothin’ then you’re racist too! Why? Because you did nothin’ to stop it. If you see another cop (your colleague) mistreat someone on the street and you do nothin’ to stop it or report it. Then you’re the same bad cop pimpin’!
My dad always taught me that if I’m in the ride with some fools that rob a bank and I don’t jump out of the car and report it then I’m just as guilty as they are and I’m goin’ to jail too. And what does the law say bruh? If you’re with someone that commits a crime then you’re just as guilty as they are of the same crime. So when the Santa Clara Police Department writes a letter tellin’ the 49ers to shut that fool up or we’re not workin’ the games. They’re in the ride with the very cops that Kaep is protestin’. Why? Because they don’t want “justice or accountability!” Stop me when I start lyin’!
