Sandy Bland

I COULD HARDLY WATCH THIS WITHOUT BECOMING EXTREMELY UPSET TO THE POINT OF WANTING TO LAY HANDS REPEATEDLY ON THAT OFFICER.

IF YOU ARE A BLACK CITIZEN IN AMERICA, THIS COULD HAVE EASILY BEEN YOUR SON OR DAUGHTER.

(LORD HELP ME BUT I WOULD CERTAINLY HAVE A PLAN “B” WAITING FOR THAT OFFICER IF HE WASN’T FOUND GUILTY OF AGGRAVATED ASSAULT AND MURDER. WE (MEN AND FATHERS) ARE DIVINELY OBLIGATED TO PROTECT OUR FEMALES, WIVES AND DAUGHTERS REGARDLESS.  SAY WHAT YOU WANT AND DO WHAT YOU WILL BUT IF SANDY BLAND HAD BEEN WHITE, THIS WOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED THE WAY IT DID.)

THIS IS SO SAD AND UNPROFESSIONAL.  AND I DON’T AGREE WITH HER ATTITUDE IN THE SITUATION BUT INSTEAD OF DE-ESCALATING, THE OFFICER PROVOKED AND ESCALATED THE SITUATION BEYOND REASON IN MY OPINION.  IN ADDITION, HE THREATENED MS. SANDRA BLAND.  AND MS. BLAND HAD A POINT REGARDING HER RIGHT TO STAY IN HER CAR UNLESS UNDER ARREST OR BEING DETAINED FOR SPECIFICALLY STATED REASONS.

I MAY BE WRONG.  BUT GET TO KNOW YOUR RIGHTS BEFORE YOU LOSE YOUR LIFE OVER A TRAFFIC STOP.

I WISH TO ENGAGE OFFICERS AND THE PUBLIC IN A QUESTION AND ANSWER TYPE MEETING WITH LAWYERS AND/OR JUDGES SO AS TO HELP THE BLACK POPULATION NAVIGATE, IMPLEMENT, INVOKE AND PROTECT OUR RIGHTS AS AMERICAN CITIZENS.

I DON’T HAVE THE NETWORK OR RESOURCES TO DO THIS BUT THOSE IN OUR COMMUNITIES WHO MAY READ OR HEAR ABOUT THIS POST AND WHO HAVE THE NECESSARY MEANS TO FACILITATE THIS INITIATIVE MAY WANT TO IMPLEMENT IT ASAP.

AS I HAVE SAID BEFORE, EVERY TIME A BLACK PERSON IS STOPPED BY THE POLICE, WE PLACE OUR LIVES AND HEALTH AT RISK.

NOTE: NOT ALL POLICE OFFICERS ARE AS DISRESPECTFUL, MEAN AND UNPROFESSIONAL AS THIS ONE. WE HAVE BEEN BLESSED HERE IN SUMTER, SC. TO HAVE A TERRIFIC, COMMUNITY-MINDED, PERSONALLY INVOLVED FAMILY OF LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF OUR THE FIRST BLACK SHERIFF – ANTHONY DENNIS.
