Threats to kill unarmed protesters, bragging about your willingness to kill without remorse, referring to protesters as "Rabid Dogs" that need to be "Put Down." these are the people that supposedly patrol our cities with Honor & Respect. Even worse, the type of reinforcements sent in to secure the situation in Ferguson, Missouri. But thanks to today's technology, these criminals have been exposed for being the trash that they are. As of today, Three of the five officers already in question have turned in their badges.
St. Ann, Missouri Police Lieutenant Ray Albers was caught on video pointing his Assault Rifle at unarmed protesters & yelling "I'm Going To Kill You" to protesters deemed as having done nothing wrong. The local Board of Police Commissioners recommended that he Resign or be be Fired. He chose to resign.
St. Louis County Police Officer Dan Page opted to retire, after separate videos went global showing him roughing up Television's most Non-threatening Negro Don Lemon, refering to himself as "A Killer," & espousing his views on Muslims (should we even go there?), Deriding Liberal-Leaning Judges as Those "Sodomites" on The Supreme Court, the necessity to be violent, Domestic Violence, and "that illegal alien who claims to be our President."
The Glendale, Missouri Police has elected to fire Officer Matthew Papert, after social media comments he made in recent weeks went viral & sparked outrage. Among other statements, Papert refers to the protesters as "Rabid Dogs," and goes on to state that they should be "Put Down." Additional comments were inferring the need to have a suicide bomber on hand to blow up the "White Trash" & Black"Thugs" in the area. Unfortunately, the same cannot yet be said for Police Sgt. Mike Weston. Officer Weston was also caught posting online comments expressing his desire to punch U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder & comments accusing Missouri Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson on hypocrisy. He also was caught in a lie-regarding why protesters were tear gassed in their own yards & commented that Michael Brown deserved to die-based on the now disputed video depicting his alleged theft of a box of swishers. smh. of course, we are ALL waiting to see what officials will do with Officer/Executioner Darren Wilson.
Accused of flirting with a Mississippi White woman, Young emmett Till was tied to a 75-pound cotton-gin fan and stripped naked before being subjected to hours of torture. His eye was gouged out, he was shot in the head, he was tied up with barbed wire & then thrown into the Tallahatchie River. His mother insisted on an Open-Casket Funeral-so that the nation would know what happened to her son. Emmett's death was as much a catalyst for the Civil rights Movements as anything else. Maybe More. No one was ever convicted for the crime-even though it was never disputed as to who had committed the crime.
In the Internet age, you really can't much of anything without potential consequences coming up. And in that vein, St. Louis County Police Officer Dan Page just made himself the poster child for why many of today's police officers are far from the traditionally-viewed "Peace Officers" here to "Serve & Protect" The Community. Already on blast for roughing up one of the most non-threatening negroes of our day on camera, now footage has been leaked that shows just how psycho this man is. In the videos posted below, Officer Page refers to himself as "A Killer," & espouses his views on Muslims, The "Sodomites" on The Supreme Court, the necessity to be violent, Domestic Violence, and "that illegal alien who claims to be our President." Trust when I say to you America, that he is far from a rarity on the force. We've been trying to tell you about this for 20+ years.
So much has been much has been of the situation in Ferguson, Missouri. So much has been said-Both Right & Wrong. All the while, there's been a battle to control the images that the public gets to see. With that in mind, the position of The Wandering Eyes Blog has consistently been that the image of this young man (Michael Brown) is the ONLY one that matters here. And as long as we allow others to manipulate what we see, more will die without cause. Helping us continue to push that point home, is our Brother Rasool Ruffin (No Budget Films & DC Drama Magazine). Shout Out to my Brother DC Drama Ruffin for the Ill Visuals.
Amid all of the Rumors, Manipulation of Facts (and Video Footage), Hijacking by Opportunists Agents (Jesse & Al), exaggerated reports of looting, suppression of relevant information, etc, the FACT that a young Man Died-apparently without a Justified Cause. If you remember anything from this post, here's a reminder of what is truly most important...

Eighteen Year Old Michael Brown was scheduled to start classes at Vatterott College this Monday. But Saturday Afternoon, he instead lay dead in the middle of the street. For yet to be disclosed reasons, Michael Brown was killed by an unnamed Ferguson Police Officer. The shooting occurred at the Canfield Green Apartment complex in suburban St. Louis, Missouri. According to witnesses, Brown was in the area visiting his grandmother & was walking with a friend, when an officer allegedly approached them with his weapon already drawn out. “He (the officer) shot again and once my friend felt that shot, he turned around and put his hands in the air,” said Johnson. “He started to get down and the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and fired several more shots.”
Brown's grandmother Desiree Harris added that she saw him running, but by the time she arrived to see what was going on, he had already been killed. As word spread of the incident, angry residents began pouring out into the street protesting yet another display of excessive force by police. Allegedly the crowd could be heard shouting "Kill The Police!" Additional officers-including police dogs & armored vehicles-were called in from other areas. No details have been provided specific to the actual shooting itself. The unnamed officer is now on paid leave-the standard "punishment" for executing unarmed Black & Latinos. According to witness accounts, young Mr. Brown was shot anywhere from 7 to 10 times.
One Year Later Dayton, Ohio Police Overseer Sean Williams is still on the job, in spite of the fact that store video cameras caught him not only show him committing the outright EXECUTION of young John Crawford-but also show that he lied about first ordering Crawford to put the BB Gun down. Ronald Ritchie, the scumbag that called 911 & reported that a Black Guy "was waving a gun and pointing it at customers," was never charged with any crime for admittedly lying to police. A young Black Man's life is gone, and in a sad twist of fate, his girlfriend (Tasha Thomas) was killed in a car crash this past January. So now John & Tasha's two children will grow up without their parents.
As 22-year-old John Crawford was shopping in a Beaver Creek, Ohio Wal-Mart, I'm sure the last thing on his mind would be that thus could be his last day on Earth. Much like I'm sure that holding & examining an air rifle, IN THE Toy AISLE, would make him deemed an immediate threat to those inside. But alas, another black Man has died for no other reason than being a perceived threat to someone's racial prejudices, stereotypes & fears.
As the story goes, a 911 Call was made-advising that a someone had a loaded gun inside the Wal-Mart. It is unclear as to exactly what happened next; but in the end, John Crawford now lies dead. According to his companion, LeeCee Johnson, Crawford could be overheard saying “It’s not real” as they were on the phone at the time of the incident. Next she heard the police say “get on the ground” then gunfire. A statement, released by the Beaver Creek Police Department, advises that “Responding officers confronted the suspect inside the store area and the subject was shot after failing to comply with officers verbal commands.” A second person, identified as 37 year old Angela Williams also died during the incident. According to reports, she collapsed-while running away from the area-and died. Her true cause of death may not be known for a few weeks; but WE ALL KNOW WHY OUR BROTHER JOHN CRAWFORD DIED. The value of a Black Person's right to Safety & freedom is alarmingly low these days...
WHITNEY HOUSTON - "SAVING ALL MY LOVE FOR YOU"
Happy Birthday Whitney!!!
Twenty-Two Year Old Ramsey Orta had the courage to face off against the NYPD & document the brutality the resulted in the death of 43 Year Old Eric Garner last month. did he receive any awards or commendations? No. What did he get for his vigilance? STALKED & ARRESTED. That's right, Saturday Night Orta was arrested & charged with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon and he is now being held pending coming up with a $75,000 Bond. Undercover officers arrested him leaving from a “known drug prone location,” just blocks away from where Ramsey Orta had filmed the infamous Eric Garner Chokehold Incident. Both Ramsey Orta’s mother & Wife have said that the police have been following Orta since he recorded police officer's murder of Eric Garner. "They’ve been following him,” she said. “They’ve been sitting in front of my house. They put spot lights in my window.” Orta himself added that "When they searched me, they didn't find nothing on me. And the same cop that searched me, he told me clearly himself, that karma's a bitch, what goes around comes around," Orta said, adding later, "I had nothing to do with this. I would be stupid to walk around with a gun after me being in the spotlight." Meanwhile, Officer/Murderer Daniel Pantaleo continues to collect a paycheck-while Police Unions continue to defend his actions. But this is supposed to be the greatest country in the world right???
