Another day, another Negro

A Wisconsin television news station uncovered more footage from the Milwaukee Police Department’s controversial arrest of Milwaukee Bucks rookie Sterling Brown this past January, and it does no favors for the half-dozen officers currently defending themselves against accusations of racism and brutality. The latest videos from WISN-TV show one officer needlessly stepping on Brown’s ankle while he is pinned face down on the asphalt and handcuffed. Other officers express concern about their actions only after realizing the “media firestorm” they were sure to create because Brown plays for the Bucks. And to put a cherry on top of these shameful videos, another officer laughs about their use of a Taser while singing The O’Jays’ “For the Love of Money” on a call requesting overtime pay. In other words, while a white police officer was brutalizing a black man, his fellow officers were plotting their defense against racism, all while they wanted overtime for this police work. This is disgusting. It is vile. And it captures everything that is broken with a system that former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was trying to warn us about by kneeling more than a year ago.
There is only one thing to do: Just sue the confederate jack booted klansmen, that’s the only language they understand. The city and its residents, which hired them, should pay for hiring the finest racists they can find.
