Post What?s the Excuse Now?

Alton Sterling: July 5, 2016, Baton Rouge, Louisianadead.

Philando Castile: July 6, 2016 in Falcon Heights, Minnesota (near Minneapolis)dead.

Police murders both.

Alton Sterling (L) and Philando Castile (R)

It would be too easy to rattle off names of unjustly killed people, overwhelmingly black, all under highly questionable circumstances. In almost all cases, what would seem like justice is somehow circumvented, and this goes at least as far back as Rodney King.

In these two most recent cases, one victim was a peddler of CDs (see him dying here). The other was following an officers instructions at a traffic stop, told the officer he had a gun he was licensed to carry, proceeded to reach for his IDand ended up dying for having a busted taillight.

I cant wait to hear the rationalizations for these two crimes. Theres a contingent of explainers who always seem to justify anything police officers do. In fairness, when you see and hear the videos, youll notice that the responsible police officers are extremely distraught and unnerved by what they have just done.

I had to write this brief item because our community is too oblivious, or even on the wrong side of things, when these all-too-frequent tragedies occur. Each time I hear of these incidents, it seems as though a time machine has transported me to the days of the Bloody Sultans Hamidiyeh militias sweeping down on an Armenian village and doing whatever they wanted. Remember, those groups were official representatives of the state at the time, as are the police of today.

We, as Armenians, unfortunately well experienced in being at the receiving end of injustice, must be at the forefront of the efforts to prevent future killings of innocent people. These needless deaths are happening only because most non-blacks in the United States have been inculcated with a fear of black-skinned humans. This causes even well-trained police officers to overreact.

Get out there and use your credibility as a scion of genocide survivors to save lives.
