Police In Urban Amerikkka: To Serve & Protect Who? – The LanceScurv Show

Share

If you were to ask the people who live in the inner cities of America about how they feel about the overall performance of their respective police departments, what response do you think they would give?

Why is it that we cannot have a stretch of time go by without their being some type of story of police brutality and the abuse of power being revealed where yet another kid was shot down dead or harassed for no reason whatsoever?

Why is there a sense of fear and distrust amongst the people if these very same police departments and law enforcement agencies sought to improve their relations with them and reached out to embrace them to make their job easier through the mutual respect and proactive communication that comes from a sincere effort to understand those who they claim they are supposed to serve and protect?

Why are there so many disgruntled police officers who felt misled after finally achieving their positions in a seemingly wonderful career once they found out what their jobs really entailed and the wall of silence that’s expected of them when one of their colleagues abuses the power granted them by their particular jurisdiction?

What has the history of the police department been to the Black and minority communities here in the United States and is there a concrete reason for the distrust and fear that their presence stirs?

Is there still some kind of alliance between the police department and the white supremacist secret societies that have been well documented throughout our history to do the oppressive bidding of the so called majority over the minority population?

Why do many of us after knowing the tainted landscape of perverted justice here in America through our daily face to face dealings with law enforcement seem to do the very things to get ourselves in trouble and then cry that the White man is holding us back?

What are the things that we as a community and as an individual should do as citizens to ensure that the history of abuse that has continued to reign into the present is finally stopped and made to be to us what it is to those in the affluent communities who keep their neighborhoods in check through a collective effort?

Why is it that many who do not live in the inner city communities are completely unaware of the travesties that are so commonplace on the urban landscape and would they allow these tragic events to transpire in their midst if it did?

If the training and support of being a police officer is amongst the best in the world here in the United States then why is there such a high level of domestic violence, depression, alcohol and substance abuse, suicide and infidelities across the board with these very same officers who we are told to trust our lives with?

While it is said that there are good officers out here doing their jobs, where do they vanish to when the abuses of those wayward officers are being executed on a people who have yet to stand in front of a judge and why don’t they speak out when it is time to stand up for what is right?

As you can see, there are many unanswered questions that WE the people have about those who are commissioned to maintain law and order in our world yet it seems as though the simple act of answering those questions has been a very difficult task to face because if the truth be told we haven’t been treated as the first class citizens that WE deserve to be treated as regardless of where we live and how much money we don’t appear to have!

Can respect be purchased from your local police department? It surely seems so in a system that shows you that a high priced lawyer will work miracles for those who can afford them while the poor and downtrodden move about in the fear of being randomly plucked out of their already challenged life to get caught up in a system that views then as just another guinea pig to keep the money making law enforcement and judicial system moving while we realize we are merely the fuel to keep someone else profiting from our detainment and eventual incarceration.

Tonight we will not hold back on what is in our hearts to discussed and invite ALL law enforcement to chime in with their opinions and viewpoints in an uncensored manner that will help to bring our listeners to an understanding that has been terribly elusive to us in the light of the slight that we’ve had to endure.
