Hello fellow zobopians!  The whole world’s watching!  But who’s watching the watchers?  What difference does it make?  It’s all being captured on video!  Killers are being caught on video.  People getting killed are captured on video.  The revolution WILL NOT be televised!  It will get recorded and be available for downloading to be watched over and over again at your convenience.

But…here’s the thing…

When a Black person gets shot and/or killed by police, does anyone see it?  Never mind having “the talk” with your son or daughter when coming in contact with the police.  What Black Americans need to talk about is, do you have a dashboard camera or your own personal body camera ready?  That’s the talk we need to be having.

KeepFilmingCops

The importance of recording the police is deadly serious.  (After all, they’re recording us citizens.)  There are three [3] deadly grounds for Black people when we come into contact with police:

-Order Of Survivability-

  1. You can get shot and/or killed in the street or in the vehicle.  [Eric garner – killed on sidewalk; Alton Sterling – shot in the street; Philando Castile – shot in car.]
  2. You can get shot and/or killed in the police vehicle; ( if you survive the first deadly ground scene.)  [Freddie Gray – killed in police van during “rough ride”.]
  3. You can die in the jail house or jail-holding cell; ( that is if you survive the first & second deadly grounds.)  [Sandra Bland – suspiciously died while in waiting in jail.]

Gone are the days of the 1960’s slogan, “the whole world’s watching”.  The police of the 21st century need to be kept under watch.  The only way we’re going to do that is to keep recording them.  If the police are going to keep “shooting to kill” us, then we need to keep “shooting to record” them just so we can have proof and evidence of what happened.  We can’t always rely on the police to provide evidence when they cover-up or delay proof or disable their tax-payer paid recording equipment.

KEEP RECORDING!  Freedom without security is useless!

Until neXt time…
