So I read an article from the Huffington post in regards to the case of Howard Morgan, a black police officer(Detective) who was shot 28 times after being pulled over by four white officers in Burlington Illinois outside of Chicago. Morgan was driving the wrong way down a one way street while working off duty as a detective for a local railroad when he was pulled over by four white in which a reported altercation ensued where Morgan allegedly opened fired his weapon wen officers tried to arrest him which resulted in the four officers shooting him 28 times. Morgan strangely survived the hail of gun fire, BUT he was brought on several different charges including attempted murder of the four white officer that arrested him. Morgan went to trial and was found not guilty on some of the lesser charges against him, yet he is still up for trial on the charges of attempted murder. There is also clear instances of blatant evidence tampering on the part of the Chicago Police department which is unfortunate because the evidence could have possibly shed more light on to hat really happened and maybe prove Morgan’s innocence. Morgan goes to trial later this year and could face up to 80 years in prison if found guilty. This case blew me away because this is a case of of Cop on Cop violence that to me is another clear case of racial prejudice and assault. It’s hard to really put this case into words because it’s just way to many variables, but one questions stands out to me…how do you shot a cop 28 times and then bring him up on attempted murder charges??? It’s hard to understand this world sometimes and this country we call America but WOOOOOOOW COME ON DUDE!!! Below is a link to the article written in the Huffington post providing more details about the case. And sign the petition on change.org to drop the charges on Howard Morgan.
so I came across a blog post about a woman named Anna Brown who died Monday March 26th in Missouri jail cell after St.Mary’s Hospital in Richmond heights Missouri refused her medical treatment after she came into the hospital complaining about excruciating ankle pain. It turns out that a sprained ankle Brown suffered weeks prior had actually caused blot clots in here legs which traveled through her body and eventually into her heart. Brown was arrested at St. Mary’s hospital after she refused to leave the hospital until someone gave her medical attention because she was ion so much pain that she could not stand and had forced her to be bound to a wheelchair. Police showed up at St. Mary’s hospital and arrested Brown on site and booked her on trespassing charges and drug brown from the squad car to her jail cell where she cried in pain as she died. Now to me this is beyond black vs white, this issue is about a color that is much more powerful…green. Brown was technically homeless as she was going through some life issues, and she was in a court battle to regain custody of her children, but as her records sated she was not a drug addict, she was simply stuck in a very tough financial and metal state. brown however was a medicare recipient but as we know in America that is simply not enough if you want a hospital to save your life. Once again America shows it’s true colors and reminds us that if you can’t afford health care…you’re probably going to die. This is a sad fact of living in this country and it is one that must change. Below is an article from a St. Louis newspaper fulling detailing the events of the case and the life history of Anna Brown so that you can get a complete image of the story and formulate your own opinion.
