One of the most injurious aspects of injustice is DELAY. Even this wicked United States' Supreme Court has said, "Justice delayed is Justice denied. Betrayal of a Citizens' right to Justice in a reasonable amount of time gives cause to that Citizen to rebel against that very government that has caused BOTH the injustice AND the delay. To those who may read these few humble words and find them to be offsetting or even offensive I would ask you to read The Declaration of Independence that was authored (primarily) by Thomas Jefferson. Indeed a slave holding sociopath but undoubtedly the MOST celebrated of America's "Founding Fathers". Many of Mr. Jefferson's ideas exist in American culture as scientific fact although he, himself, was NOT a scientist. It is important to note that while he WROTE that "all men are created equal" he CLEARLY did NOT believe that. Nor did he believe ( in the depth of his subconscious mind) that the Black Men and Women that he held as chattel, to be inferior to himself. The psychosis that he and his countrymen suffered from which resulted in the decimation of the Indigenous People of this Land, still exists in the minds of some of the present day Washington State Legislators!!! I-940 was fought TOOTH and NAIL by them and then they had the AUDACITY to pretend as if they were behind it all along. (We witnessed this travesty on March 31, 2018-400,000 Signatures and $1,000,000 later...) And now WE HAVE TO watch how ENFORCEMENT of I-940 rolls out and be ready to take them to task when they fail to properly enforce the LAW!! ... See moreSee less

Congratulations People of Washington State one more step towards humanitarian elevation

Yes. Great news #justice #moving #forward

Amen God is good!

CONGRATULATIONS

Congratulations!!

I seriously cannot believe that every single police department in the Entire country isn't making this type of thing a priority! I mean we all know for fact that the poor pregnant Charleena Lyles would still be alive if the police had gotten this training years ago!! The police need to stop thinkin they are judge jury and executioner

Hard work pays off!!

Congratulations!!!

Much rejoicing here!!!! Good work everyone!

So happy!

Brilliant!! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ˜‡โœŒ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘‘

Big meeting tomorrow on changing the Inquest Process in King County! Please join Not This Time Activists Saturday, February 10th, 11:00am-1:00pm Tukwila Community Center Banquet Hall (12424 42nd Ave S, Tukwila, WA 98168)

We will be meeting at the Tukwila Community Center beforehand to all get on the same page. Not This Time activists are welcome to join at 10:00am. (Please comment if you need a ride.)

In short, our five top speaking points include:

- Though we like that the current inquest is a public place for fact finding, it is not serving the needs of the families or community

- The inquest process should treat families more compassionately and they should play a major role in getting the facts

- Inquests should be a comprehensive examination of all relevant information to reach meaningful conclusions

- Inquests should be conducted by a neutral body (not the prosecutor) to satisfy I-940's requirement of completely independent investigations

- Inquests should be accessible to all members of the public and should be publicly-accessible via live internet video feed

If you cannot make this meeting tomorrow, the final public meeting will be on Thursday, Feb. 22nd, 6:30 to 8:30pm, Mercer Island Community & Event Center, (8236 SE 24th St, Mercer Island, WA 98040)

Please also email inquestreview@kingcounty.gov with your comments.

#DeEscalateWashington #NotThisTime

Brandi Kruse
Initiative 940, which would change the way officers are prosecuted for deadly force and require additional training in de-escalation, has enough signatures to go to voters. Andre Taylor, whose brother was killed by Seattle police in a shooting later ruled justified, is among those behind the effort.

New national article on police shootings around the country. More info on those who were shot but did not die. The story of the Chaplin family in Olympia is also included.

VICE
โ€œMy nephew, Carter, says, 'I donโ€™t want to be black, I want to be white because the police donโ€™t kill white people.โ€™ And it just, like, broke my heart.โ€

This is what itโ€™s like to survive being shot by the police: bit.ly/2BdUt3E

I'll just leave this right here for you....

PBS NewsHour
"If you read the 13th Amendment, it doesn't talk about the narratives of racial difference. It doesn't talk about ideologies of white supremacy. It only talks about involuntary servitude and forced labor. And because of that I don't think slavery ended in 1865, I think it just evolved." Bryan Stevenson, executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, shares his #BriefbutSpectacular take on justice in America.

I read Bryan Steveson's book "Just Mercy". The work that this giant of a man has done is Nobel Prize winning caliber. I think he is our American Nelson Mandela. Will loan to book to anyone! .

Please join us @ 530pm TONIGHT to protest the SPD review board that found that killing Charleena Lyles was within department policy. If that is true than the policy is WRONG. We are gathering at 65th & Sandpoint Way on the park side with signs and lanterns or candles to show our support for the residents of the park and our outrage at the SPD for this decision. We know this is last minute, but please consider the importance of showing our support and outrage. #SayHerName ... See moreSee less

Interesting fact Charleena's sister's and brother in Seattle seem to have forgotten that Charleena lived in California with her father Charles and his family while growing up and after the birth of her babies they all lived with Charles and his wife. All the Information we have received vital to this has been published on FaceBook or on the TV News. Monika told KIRO News that Charleena was pregnant before she told Charles.
