First off two thing, Rest in peace to this man and peace to his family. Second thing I am going to point something out and it may offend the people who are “black & white” type who don’t believe in greys.

Alton Sterling was murdered by the Baton Rouge police department on July 5,2016. There are multiple videos al over the net that I just don;t want to show you guys but I just need you to know some of the facts.

  • Police were called by an anonymous person saying “a man was at the store selling cds and he had a gun”
  • 2 Police officers arrive and proceed to attempt to arrest said man, even tasering him
  • Police officers wrestle him to the ground one on his back and one on the head area
  • Police find said gun and he is fired upon with shots into his chest and back.

Those are the facts about the case pretty much. Now CNN & Fox probably won’t post a picture of him because they don;t have a jail booking photo s they love to do to all the black people who have been murdered by the cops.

Now to offer you some contrast I will share this video with you as it relates to how far the police are williing to go to not kill someone of a different race.

Just to offer a bit of perspective.

Here comes the grey area

What CNN  & Fox News will tell you is that in 2000 he was locked up for a crime 14:80 – Carnal knowledge of a juvenile 

That was his charge via the Baton rouge police department website you can heck that here and if you wan to see the break down of what that law really is you can click here. He was in prison for 4 years and no probation after the fact.  Now to give you  quick thought and idea of what this law really is it deals with people who maybe 18 or above having consensual sex with someone between the ages of 13-17 an when the age is 4 years or greater.

Why does this matter you may ask. to add more detail he was 21yrs old when he was sentenced. The crime could have taken place the year before when he was 20yrs old. Lets say he had sex with a girl who he thought was 18 or 20 like himself and she turned out to be 16. This would make sense for the small amount of time he got seeing he could have gotten 10 years easy. Now i wrote posts about this before. where all sexual related crimes are not equal. Sometimes you can be caught up and not even know its a juvenile because she/he is in a place that only adults are allowed. IF someone is in a 21 & older club you would assume they are 21 and older. Some people are so black & white on the subject they wouldn’t consider this and they would crucify a man for not getting a background check in  club. I am not saying its the womans fault or anything I am just saying this happens. In  cases like this the parents find out and are mortified so they want to bring charges, men cannot fight these charges really because there is nothing  I know of on the books to help them fight it. They take a plea for a lesser charge and go on with life. With the advancement of hormones in meat and what kids eat trust me you could be on a train going to wor and mistake a high school kid for a grown woman and if she tells you 25yrs old as her age……….

Side tracking sorry

So you may be wondering why all that I typed above matters? It doesn’t it was 12 yrs ago and he hasn’t been arrested since. Just like any other issue in the public eye involving black people they bring in the criminal record so I figured I would lay it out for you.

The real issue is this, there isn’t a reason on God’s green earth a man who was on the ground, subdued by police should have been killed, if he had a gun on him or not. Even if before he was advancing towards police officers at this point they cuff him even with leg shackles and take him in. This man is dead over CDs that even the store owner wasn’t complaining about. he called this man a friend. you can; tell me this is right. after seeing the double standards in the video above….

Real Men x Wrestling x The Truth

“WRESTLING IS FAKE” I still see this all the time and think to myself…”The amount of energy he is putting behind telling us that is like telling a fat id he’s fat” Pretty much all of us know wrestling is fake but we still enjoy it so let us have that. We live in a society where someone else’s pleasure that has nothing to do with you is your business because they are experiencing something you are not. For most of us in our 30s we now wrestling is fake but we enjoy a good story, we always have, but back in the day these were the “mens men” these were the guys who were good vs evil and not cartoons real guys. For me I learned a lot of how to be a man because my dad was around bu he wasn’t around. I don’t recall many moments with my dad pre my 10th year, I now I had some but the one consistent thing i could tell you is none of those moments were with him sober, I sought to be influenced. Then I saw the video and understood or got an idea that perfect and perfection weren’t just words but a way of life.

Simple and scripted with bad acting, but if you have nothing else but this and gangster movies………. come on man.

Myself and my people wanted to learn how to be men, with no daddies and half time dads and these people taught us.

At times I swear I am my own worst enemy as I have a tendency to ask too many dam questions.. I ask them because I want to know and I seek information. One of the questions is about the recent murder of a young lady of 29 years mother of 2 and the person alleged to kill her a 41 yr old man. Check it out here

I will speak their names her name is Janese Talton-Jackson, 29, of Penn Hills nd his name is Charles McKinney, 41, of Penn Hills. It is alleged that he killed her after she turned him down in a  bar a bit before. If that happened that way it is just sad a woman reserves the right to say no to man and his advances.

 

Here is where i get in trouble same trouble when I ask passionate people about rape, Ray Rice, Bill Cosby, and Charlie Sheen.

1.) What was a mother of 2 doing out in a bar at 1:30am? Isn’t that something you leave in the past once you have kids? (there is nothing wrong with going out and hanging out but you have kids to tend to or recover from.)

2.) How did she turn him down? did she just say “hey no thank you…” or did she seek to embarrass him or did she throw a drink in his face, put hands on him, lead him on or assault him? ( mind you I am saying any of these movements give him the right to kill her at all, just trying to understand what happened and how)

If I was a police officer and investigating I would ask these two questions, asking these questions from the passionate perspective is victim blaming and I am not victim blaming, I am merely trying to see the sate of mind of people and what was going on. If a woman tossed a drink on a man or put her hands on a man without him putting his hands on here that is assault in its truest form. Alot of the time it isn’t charged because we as a society always feel that its a mans fault period.

Training Wheels

Training wheels are so important in life, career, and in most aspects. as a kid if you can remember most of us had training wheels on our bikes, they came that way at least on our first big boy/girl bike. Can you image the carnage that would have existed if we went from tricycle to two-wheel bike without the training wheels? Yeah I know the bruises, scrapes, and pain that you can image, well life is like that as well internships are lie the training wheels where you can afford to fall and be taught and supported. don;t be so quick to just ut there on your own because there maybe some thing you don’t see because you’re eyes aren’t trained to see them.

Whore Life

I am a whore, I admit it. Not in the tradition definition I must say.  I am a self proclaimed truth whore. I feel there is no need to lie. Maybe that is the good guy too god guy speaking in me, but we live in a world where trust is something of the past lie as opposed to a current keeper thing. I am all for keeping things to ones self, but when you do something that you know is going to hurt another I feel you owe it to them to tell it to them and keep it fresh and funky. The reason most people keep things to themselves because they enjoyed the act but fear the consequences of their action. I feel this way and have always believed it, if I enjoyed the action enough then the consequences are very well worth it.

 

Try telling a hard full truth to someone and see how free you feel.

Never Complex

You ever notice when someone does something wrong, out-of-order, or even the east bit sketchy they justify it with, “I never get the chance, never was able to………”? Here is the thing I understand it but i offer this as a retort if you’ve never than it doesn’t matter if you do now does it? here is something even better, if you “never have” then once you get this one out the way then you do it the second time you can’t turn and use this excuse again. I have seen a lot of us still do it. How is a person supposed to believe you when  you continue to do the same practice? it makes no sense to me. Something to think about.
