New TrueSpeech Discussion VLOG where I talk about the upcoming Presidential Election in November and why it is so important to vote. I also discuss why I am voting for Obama on more than the obvious basis that he is a black guy.
20 years ago, 23 year old college student Clarence Aaron was arrested and jailed for “conspiring” to sell cocaine, yet he did not buy, sell, distribute, handle, or have anything to do with selling cocaine. Aaron was simply a witness to a crack cocaine sale that he had nothing to do with when the cops busted him and the guilty parties. Aaron was fully cooperative with the police and even testified in court about what he witnessed,but because of the overtly racism drug laws established by the devil himself aka Ronald Regan, Aaron was sentenced to triple life…That’s three consecutive life sentences. This was in 1993..Aaron still sits in jail to this day and the only thing that can overturn his conviction is a presidential pardon from Barack Obama Himself. Aaron could have been freed during the last 3 presidential terms yet due to a lack of awareness none of the last few Head’s of State even knew about this particular situation. A website called ProPublica recently broke the story and revealed that during Aaron’s Trial Crucial evidence was disregarded that may have changed the outcome of the trial and of course the verdict, and when his pardon application was sent to the office of George W. Bus, this same information was left out, resulting in his application being denied. The website hopes that with new evidence and more notoriety that President Obama will exercise his right and power and grant this man a pardon. The applications have been sent and now all that they can do is wait and hope. This is truly a sad case of the wrong place at the worng time, and an example of how truly FUKED up the system truly is.
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.
