WE WANT full employment for our people. WE WANT an end to the robbery by the CAPITALIST of our Black Community. WE WANT decent housing, fit for the shelter of human beings.

Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard Jr. on Wednesday charged Atlanta Police Officer Garrett Rolfe with felony murder over the death of Rayshard Brooks, claiming the officer waited over two minutes to assist Brooks and kicked him.
Blurry photo evidence provided by the district attorney, does not indicate a kick.
Brooks, who fought police during a DUI arrest, grabbed an officers taser, ran and fired the taser at the pursuing police, who fired back.
Officers can be heard on tape after the shooting saying,
“Mr. Brooks. Keep breathing. Mr. Brooks keep breathing for me.” This does not sound like police intent on denying assistance. CNN left this information out of their newscast.

The Sunrise Movement, uses the “Resistance Guide” and is behind The Green New Deal to turn the U.S. into a socialist state working with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The Sunrise founder is also working with the Biden-Sanders Climate Crisis task force.

The lawyer for George Floyd’s family labeled what is happening to blacks by police in America as “genocide.” Tucker Carlson of Fox News used data from the Washington Post
to go through each of ten cases where individuals were fatally shot by police in 2019. (Youtube)
After Carlson’s report the newspaper went in and added to the “unarmed” data, even using the case of De’Von Bailey who
was reaching for his gun (Warning: Graphic video.)
Why the Washington Post would alter their own data is up to you to decide.
