Shawna N. Harrell, Esq., and her Sigma Gamma Rho sorority sisters were cleaning an “Adopt-A-Highway” stretch of Highway 83 near the 13th street exit in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania when a State Trooper pulled up to question them as he was responding to a call and inquired if they were fighting. The officer asked for their identifications after grilling them as to who they really were and what they were doing out there as well as what their professions were. The State Trooper eventually left the scene after telling them that they were doing “Great Work and that he wished more people would do so!”
Talk about trying to clean up a mess! Our Sisters weren’t the only ones out there attempting to do so as this officer must have known that he truly made a bad call in questioning the obvious intentions of these young ladies who obviously were not fighting or disruptive in any way, shape or form.
The wide spectrum of individual perception is a heck of of a thing that could potentially get someone hurt, locked up and even killed! It’s obvious that someone saw these young women doing the right thing in cleaning up voluntarily and simply had to attempt to mess their day up by making a call that was truly bogus. My immediate thought is why don’t they trace that particular individual down to reprimand them for the call that was made without merit? But knowing how these people move according to a “code” that will never allow them to go against each other no matter how hard pressed, too many it may even be a waste of time to spend the time and energy in doing so.
We must be more proactive in holding these law enforcement agencies accountable for their every action and not allow these types of incidents to become the norm as I’ve noticed that too many of us have become desensitized to them and oftentimes more accepting of them being part of the fabric of what Amerikkka is all about which is not healthy for us as a people across the board.
Racists can hate me all that they want but they better not even think of violating my rights nor even think about putting their hands on me! Either aggression will be returned with an increased “higher on the force matrix” retaliation as it is our right to live as we wish freely! The sad reality is that living freely for us is a violation in the stolen land of White Supremacy and will always be until we not only loosen it’s grip from around our necks, but to vaporize it on sight every time it rears it’s ugly head!
