We have to continue the march for justice as it is taken away from us, each and every day. I was late putting out the newsletter this morning. I had to make it through my tears of the stories in the national section. And so I had to write a bit and share.
It's a fact, pointed out daily for years-
On Friday, a simple request that a patron wear a mask while inside a Bethlehem Township, PA store erupted in gunfire, leaving its staff rattled and police searching for an armed suspect. An arrest warrant was issued for Adam Zaborowski, 35, on attempted homicide and other charges. Police allege Zaborowski shot at a worker in the Cigars International parking lot after walking around the store, taking two cigars, and walking out with it according to the Allentown Morning Call. He was arrested the following day after engaging in a shootout with Pennsylvania State Police and Slatington Borough Police said Bethlehem Police Department Sgt. Shaun Powell. He remains in the hospital, Powell said, but he didn't give details of any injuries. Due to a prior offense, he was also charged with persons prohibited to possess a firearm, his arrest affidavit shows. CNN
MICHAEL BROWN, 18, FERGUSON MO 2014 - Please note: Almost 6 years to the day of the aforementioned incident in PA, on August 9, 2014, Michael Brown Jr., an 18-year-old black man, unarmed, was fatally shot by 28-year-old white Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the city of Ferguson, Missouri accompanied by his 22-year-old friend Dorian Johnson. Wilson said that an altercation ensued when Brown attacked Wilson in his police vehicle for control of Wilson's gun until it was fired. Johnson claimed that Wilson initiated a confrontation by grabbing Brown by the neck through his car window, threatening him, and then shooting at him. At this point, both Wilson and Johnson state that Brown and Johnson fled, with Wilson pursuing Brown shortly thereafter. Wilson stated that Brown stopped and charged him, unarmed, after a short pursuit. Johnson contradicted this account, stating that Brown turned around with his hands raised, unarmed, shouting "Don't shoot" after Wilson had already shot at his back while he was running away from him. According to Johnson, Wilson then shot Brown multiple times until Brown fell to the ground. In the entire altercation, Wilson fired a total of twelve bullets, including twice during the struggle in the car; the last was probably the fatal shot. Brown was struck six times.
White man, strapped with AK47, criminal record, steals cigars, shoots at store clerks and patrons. Picked up the next day, after a shoot out with the police was charged, arrested, STILL ALIVE. Michael Brown, after pursuit, being shot at by police officer Wilson, turned to surrender, hands up saying "Don't shoot", shot 6 times, left lying dead in the street. #LibertyAndJusticeForSome
