San Francisco Police shoot & kill 19 yr old

Warning: the video is graphic.

Yesterday, at 4:45 p.m., SFPD shot a teenager who fled during a fair inspection on a Muni light rail car. The cops claimed that he was armed and had fired shots at them first. After the suspect was shot in the back, no gun was found. Doesn’t this sound awfully familiar? 

Seriously though, you shot a 19 yr old over a $2 fair? And he later died in the hospital, all because he didn’t pay a $2 fair & you assumed he had a gun. Back up arrived before an ambulance did. No back up was needed. There were already other cops on the scene, some even carrying assault rifles.  The man was on the ground fighting for his life. That moment in the video where he struggles to even attempt to get up is some of the most chilling video I’ve seen. Ever. 

It’s okay though right? America will probably ignore this & move on to some more mindless crap,  as is usually the case. I’ve seen it before with the Oscar grant case, Sean bell, James Brissette, and countless others. When will this country’s collective conscious wake up?

 i’m tired of shit like this happening 

smfh what the fuck ever happened to shoot to injure not shoot to kill ! 

I’m so sickened by this. We’re losing our black man for what? For the color of their skin? Such bullshit. And he was only fucking 19 and had his whole life ahead of him. I hope you rest in peace dear 

This makes me so mad and WHY DOESNT THIS HAVE MILLIONS OF NOTES. this is more then just what we see on the news it’s reality for the black community.

Racism is not dead. It has been ongoing, hiding under different disguises. It is institutionalized. It is ingrained in the very fabric of culture and society. It is so ingrained that tragedies such as these have been flying right past people’s eyes without a blink. It is so ingrained that horrific acts like these have been ignored and even justified. If you do not see this then you are blind and are of no value to the goal of uniting the planet into a peaceful and equal collective. You are complicit in the dehumanization and genocide of your own fellow people if you do not recognize these perpetual crimes of hatred. 

this is just sad. It sickens me that this is still happening, but I’m also tired of when I talk to people who are indifferent about the racial aspect of this and just talk about how unfortunate it is for this individual who was killed.  You can see the pain in this whole community because they understand the history of this and how prejudice is so woven into our culture.  If anyone still thinks it isn’t, please consider this link:

it affects us all, and it needs to be taken into account.

Ray Jasper is about to be unjustly executed under Texas’s racist Law of Parties. Take the time to read his brilliant, insightful, heart-breaking letter. It may be his last living statement. As Michelle Alexander wrote on her FB page, “If he is not worthy of life, none of us are.”

A Letter From Ray Jasper, Who Is About to Be Executed
4 March 2014 | Ray Jasper was convicted of participating in the 1998 robbery and murder of recording studio owner David Alejandro. A teenager at the time of the crime, Jasper was sentenced to death. He wrote to us once before, as part of our Letters from Death Row series. That letter was remarkable for its calmness, clarity, and insight into life as a prisoner who will never see freedom. We wrote back and invited him to share any other thoughts he might have. Today, we received the letter below. Everyone should read it.



wow…
