gun violence

An Email

And I received another one of those Todd Eaton emails today that seem to be all protest all the time. And this one is pretty grim, as they sometimes are:

Police Acquitted: New York Times.

April 25: Verdict on yet another person who has lost their life to gun violence due. Justice for this person and all victims of police violence, and gun violence. Come out April 25th, the day of the verdict. In 2006, yet another person has lost their life by the NYPD in a hail of 40 or 50 bullets. This loss of life represents the continued targeting of communities by the police and the lack of accountability for police misconduct and abuse.

Endorsers: Audre Lorde Project, Organizing Asian Communities, Congress for Korean Reunification, Desis Rising Up and Moving , DJ Chela, Domestic Workers United , Fierce, Free Mumia Abu-Jamal Coalition , Hasan Salaam, Hip Hop Caucus, Immigrant Justice Solidarity Project, International Action Center, Jews for Racial and Economic Justice , Justice Committee, Lynne Stewart Organization, Make the Road by Walking, Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, Mano a Mano, May 1st Coalition, National Hip Hop Political Convention, New Abolitionists, Nodutdol for Korean Community Development, October 22nd Coalition, Parents Against Police Brutality, Rebel Diaz, Revolting in Pink (R.I.P), Rights for Imprisoned People with Psychiatric Disabilities , VAMOS Unidos. War Resisters League, Where We Live Radio Program/WBAI-FM NY.

And this leads me to think about guns and gun violence again, and I could copy my blog posts over and over in my appeal to end gun violence. Guns are the worst invention of an industry ever. If only guns could be abolished from every human being on the face of planet earth, and banned from all forms of advertising in news media, television, newspapers, commercials, clothing and any other form of media that influences culture. And if only that, is it the fourth amendment, of the constitution could be rewritten to say the right to bear sticks and stones instead of guns, as if property is worth more than people. Wouldn’t there be less trouble in the world if guns didn’t exist. And this is a story that has been told yesterday, is told today and will be told tomorrow in the seemingly never ending cycle of the beast that feeds upon itself, that another person has lost their life to gun violence. And in other thoughts, what are all of those headlines about “New York City Police begin toting submachine guns on subways” that have been in the news the past couple of days. Hugh? Hasn’t the New York City Metropolitan Transit Authority thought up enough ways to terrorize its riders going their way already with its prerecorded “If you see something, say something” messages, and its random bag searches, and its cameras everywhere, and those police with attack dogs. Who are the terrorists here? Isn’t it possible for the subway and bus fares to be free and that Police, or at least their guns and attack weaons could disapear from the NYC MTA. Can the NYCMTA free its riders from oppression. It seems as if humanity is losing its civil rights in the name of security at the speed of light. And now one must be intimidated in fear and pretend that one can not possibly be machine gunned to death simply for going their way. Does Wikipedia have an entry for this as an explanation. What would Gandhi have to say about this. Is there hope for the world and society. Where is the world headed. No one is free when others are oppressed. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?
