"There is NEVER any excuse for Violence" by Cindy Sheehan


“There is Never any Excuse for Violence”
Cindy Sheehan



The above is a quote from the War Criminal in Chief Barack Obama in his statement about the miscarriage of justice that just happened in Ferguson, MO.

The deep irony is that this man is the figurehead of the most violent, racist, and deadly empire in the history of our planet.

What he said was, “There is never any excuse for violence,” but what he meant was, “there is never any excuse for violence from oppressed or occupied people—I, however, can bomb people, torture people, assassinate people without trials, spy on people AND shoot your kids down in the streets.”

In my opinion, the burden of “peace” is not on the shoulders of oppressed or occupied people. It is a human right to defend ourselves and our loved ones.

Obama also said, “the police put their lives on the line for us everyday.” Really? I don’t see an epidemic of cops being killed, but I sure see a huge rise in cops murdering people with virtual impunity.

Of course, we do live in a violent society from the top on down. War and violence is the first response from the top and cops are being given clear permission again and again to respond with lethal force when non-deadly forms of apprehension are used on mostly white criminals.

In Ferguson, protesters may be throwing bottles and breaking windows, but I am viewing heavy armored personnel and vehicles moving through the streets of Ferguson and are attacking the protesters with tear gas and threats of deadly warfare.

The doublespeak of Empire is nauseating and Cindy Sheehan’s Soapbox and Soapbox People’s Network are providing an opportunity to go to DC in March to let Obama know that we think that police state violence is totally unacceptable and will no longer be tolerated. 

Justice for Michael Brown and all victims of police state and imperial violence!

The Stark Reality of Police Brutality (SOAPBOX PODCAST NOVEMBER 23, 2014)



 CINDY SHEEHAN'S SOAPBOX
THE STARK REALITY OF POLICE BRUTALITY

With the pending grand jury decision in the Michael Brown murder in Ferguson, MO, The Soapbox is replaying a show we did with four extraordinary people whose lives were devastated and changed when a loved one was murdered by cops.






Learn about their stories, the stories of their loved ones and the inspiring heart-connection they have made to do something that I know is not easy.

None of us asked for "this," let's hear stories that are so difficult to hear, but even harder to tell. 


 BIOS AND RELEVANT LINKS
Christina Arechiga – Sacramento, CA– Prison right activist for over 15 years then changed focus to police brutality when her first cousin Ernest Duenez Jr was murdered by John Moody of the Manteca PD. Now works full time as a private investigator and in the CA Statewide Coalition Against Police Brutality for all families who have been victims of law enforcement corruption and working on changing procedures and laws allowing such corruption.

Rosemary Duenez – Lathrop, CA – a mother and grandmother whose son Ernest Duenez Jr. was murdered by John Moody of the Manteca PD on June 8, 2011 – Ernest 34 yrs old was a father of an 11 month old son at the time, the Duenez family maintains weekly Sunday protests at the Manteca PD and is actively working with the CA Statewide Coalition Against Police Brutality. They fought to have the dash cam video released to them and they in turn released to the public in their fight for justice. Their civil case is currently in the federal courts in Sacramento, Ca and trial will begin in early 2014. The officer was cleared by the DA’s office but the family maintains an ongoing investigation and continues to put pressure on law enforcement to be accountable and file murder charges.
