Police 2, Oakland residents 4

On New Year’s Day 2009, much of the world’s attention was focused on the Israeli led massacre of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip in the Middle East, a place where snipers and suicide bombers fighting against an occupying force are everyday realities. This story was given a break when the police murder of 22-year-old unarmed Black father, Oscar Grant III, killed in an East Oakland BART station, was caught on tape by dozens of witnesses and aired on TV. Ironically, no one knew that these would be two of the first tests of how progressive this new Black American president, Obama, is.

Fast forward nearly three months later – after the first of a series of Oakland rebellions made the police arrest BART police triggerman Johannes Mehserle in Nevada and after the bailing out of Mehserle for $300,000*: On March 21, 26-year-old Lovelle Mixon was murdered by Oakland police after allegedly killing four of them on MacArthur Boulevard off of 73rd Avenue in East Oakland.

Ironically, thousands of people at the same time Lovelle lost his life were protesting the war in Iraq, when San Francisco police attacked the crowd. But only dozens gathered to see what happened to Lovelle Mixon, who let his actions speak about what he thought of the racial profiling in our community.

This time, instead of the Gaza Strip in the Middle East, we’re talking about the MacArthur Strip in East Oakland. Instead of the occupation force of the Israelis in Palestine or the Americans in Iraq or Afghanistan, the low income Black communities in America are dealing with the police, FBI, ATF and DEA, to name a few. Instead of a suicide bomber or a sniper holed up in a building, Lovelle turned out to be a suicide sniper who used a gun instead of a bomb to take out enemies of the community.

Now that the rabbit has the gun, the police and the media want us to forget the despair that they now feel is the same way we repeatedly feel when we are indiscriminately killed in the streets by police, as in the cases of Oscar Grant, Terrance Mearis, Donte Story, Amadou Diallo, Annette Garcia, Adolph Grimes, Casper Banjo, Anita Gaye, Aaron Harrison, Kathryn Johnston, Sean Bell and Gary King, except in our cases we know that no police officer is going to serve any real time for murdering members of our community.

Now in the days following what some in the Black community see as a day of heroic resistance against the police, the mainstream news is working overtime to show Black toddlers putting flowers on the police-created “street memorials” of the four officers, as well as an old Black woman crying at one of the scenes, talking about how dangerous this East Oakland community has become.

The reality is, when you go to the scene, which I did a number of times, you see very few residents of the area – especially young Black males – with any sympathy for the officers, because for decades Oakland police officers have run rampant over the Black community. Sgt. Mark Dunakin, 40, one of the officers killed, long patrolled North Oakland, wreaking hell on young Black males.

On the Monday following the latest round in Black males versus the police in the “Game of Death” that put the stats for ‘09 at Police 2, Oakland residents 4, BART officer Mehserle’s trial was given a two-month continuance. John Burris, the civil lawyer for Oscar Grant’s family, pointed out how this is another case of Johannes Mehserle, who is on trial for the murder of Oscar Grant, being given preferential treatment.

Mehserle’s legal strategy seems to be to use the continuance so that all the pro-police sentiment that is drummed up by the mainstream media over the next two months can be used to prejudice a jury in Mehserle’s case to show “how dangerous these Black males are.” If these two cases are unrelated, as people in the San Francisco Chronicle have been saying, then why has Mehserle’s trial been put off for so long?

If you look at the issue of Time Magazine that features Obama on the cover and reports on him being sworn in, you will see that the rising tension between the residents of Oakland and the Oakland police has been a national story since the beginning of the year. Yet from America’s first Black president you have heard nothing specifically about Oakland. But you have heard about his stimulus bill, which has $1 billion slated for putting 100,000 more police on America’s streets.

If the city of Oakland is scared now, they should be scared when that money is disbursed, because that is 100,000 more chances that a Black male who is politically and economically disenfranchised will commit “revolutionary suicide,” to quote one of the revolutionary icons from Oakland, Minister of Defense Huey P. Newton of the Black Panther Party.

To all the Three Strikes supporters, police sympathizers and prison industry businessmen, how does it feel when the rabbit has the gun? Welcome to East Oakland.

*Mehserle’s bail was set at $3 million; $300,000 is the 10 percent that had to be paid for his release.

    * * * Thank you very much * * * for your previous compliments (March 27th, 2009 at 2:17pm — and March 28th, 2009 at 9:50pm) about my “Karmic Justice” post (March 27th, 2009 at 11:14am).

    It inspired me (I thought, if someone intelligent and obviously sociopolitically dedicated thought it was that good) to expand my comment post (also picked up at DaveyD.com) and write it as a formal guest commentary for the Berkeley Daily Planet, and to submit it to several other publications to cover different readerships.

    Also today, Friday morning, on KALW (91.7fm) “Your Call Radio” program (11:am), out of San Francisco, a daily radio interview and listener call-in talk program which I regularly listen to and sometimes call in to, a female caller, a Susan from Oakland, called in to recommend my BDP commentary to listeners (she called in around, plus-or-minus, three-quarters into the program). This radio program was also repeated again at 5:pm, so hopefully my formal commentary will get even wider attention and reading as representing a voice of the normally left voiceless by the white establishment media.

    Malaika H. Kambon,
    Damn that is the best summary of what is exactly going on in this country that I’ve heard in a long time. It’s so pathetic that people don’t see this, but I understand it’s the media that continues to promote it in order to support the government and military industrial complex which is represented in our local police departments.
    Why should I believe anything that a police department spokes person says with regard to these matters? What reason do any of us have to trust a police department that allows killers to run rampant and even pay them while on administrative leave. Why would anyone believe the police departments claim that Mixon was a rapist? Many of us have first hand experience with pigs we know how they think and what they do. Don’t think for a second that a pig is gonna do the right thing when it comes to turning in another pig for improper conduct or not demonize someone that killed a pig, it’s what they do, they have methods and techniques, it’s just public relations to them. In reality the oakland city government cares less about those pigs than they do about the contrived honor or image they would like the world to percieve of their great empire. Now the Rabbit has the gun.
    Cops very rarely go to jail for killing unarmed innocent people. There’s volumes of documented history on police brutality, some of our greatest leaders have experienced this brutality openly for all to see and yet we still have people that believe the pigs are entitled to respect or can be trusted. Why would anyone trust a cop?
    Remember this country’s government was built by slave owners and rapists. So what else would we expect for the past 500 some years.

    I would like to bring attention to the profanity and name calling many of these people resort to here. Instead of making an intelligent comment like Malaika H. Kambon, they resort to weird attempts at comic phrasing of completely vulgar rude and totally unimportant trains of thought. I mean i’ve even gotten caught up in it with refering to the cops as pigs. I can admit that! So are any of you people adult enough to face your self and admit a fault you may have in your own argument? Is it not ok to see the hand that the oakland police department played in this incident with it’s DOCUMENTED history of treatment of young african males?

    The 4 cops HAD guns, training and most likely protective gear. How many UN-ARMED African Men, women and children have police killed? Those 4 cops had more than a fair advantage. Mixon obviously was able to outwit these 4-5 supposedly highly trained officers of the law. Not to mention the tactical logistics and technological support the oakland police department had pursuing him. I think from a purely strategic point of view to study as EUROPEANS love to do ;) it’s a feat Houdini, chris angel nor even chuck norris could have ever pulled off. It’s just such a rare occurence I believe it to be a sign of something much bigger. Maybe even a turning point, imagine if every african male understood his power to take out 4 cops, what does that mean from a mathematical point of view to every police department in america? Then multiple that by every native and mexican american! Did mixon have some kind of special training or was he an average joe? Does anyone know?

    TO Malaika H. Kambon (March 24th, 10:48pm), Kush (March 28th, 9:20pm), and Brown Girl from East Los: your commments are excellent.

    You should also consider emailing a letter to the editor, or a guest commentary, to opinion[at]BerkeleyDailyPlanet.com so that they reach a predominantly white readership too. The BDP is distributed in Berkeley and Oakland, and is, of course, also published online. It gets a very large readership — you know, because it comes out of Berkeley.

    The limit for letters is 400 words; the limit for guest commentaries is 1,000 words.

    You should try to get it in as soon as possible well before Wednesday so they have time to include and place it in their layout — the Daily Planet comes out every week on Thursday.

    (Just one recommendation: in a formal commentary don’t use a lot of CAPS in your body text. Formal publications generally don’t like that and won’t formally publish anything with a lot of body text caps. And keep your paragraphs relatively short, like you did.)

    The BDP is apparently allowing at least a few authentic Black voices and we need to add to that — to counterbalance all the (to put it politely) stuff in the Bay Area corporate media.

    Thank you Marlon Crump for your informative input. Many of these people commenting miss a quintessential point when you say….

    “I personally understand why my people feel the way that they do about the police. However, I could never have any inhumane feelings of a life being ruthlessly cutdown. Death is never prejudiced.”

    I agree whole heartedly. Yes there is frustration in the black community about inappropriate police behavior. Yes many police officers disrepect and verbally and sometimes physically abuse people in that community….and yes there are some good police officers who are trying to do a difficult job…..but that doesn’t mean that you celebrate the deaths of officers who were brutally shot down while making a traffic stop by a coward. It’s not as if they were wrongly beating him for no reason and in self defense he grabbed their gun and defended himself. No, he shot them down in cold blood and I don’t care if they were white, black, brown or yellow. My heart goes out to them and their families. All human life should be cherished.

    Yes this tragedy should be a catalyst to discuss the role of policing in predominately poor minority communities and the problems that arise…but all the racist name calling and the glorification of this horrific act makes me realize there is plenty of blame to go around.

    “Level of UN-Consciousness” : “All human life should be cherished.”

    Should Southern slave plantation owners lives have been “cherished”? Should Hitler’s life have been “cherished”? Should Mussolini’s life have been “cherished”? Should Stalin’s life have been “cherished”? Should the Shah of Iran’s life have been “cherished”? Should Pinochet’s life have been “cherished”? Should the CIA agents, who’ve overthrown 3rd World *democracies* and even assassinated 3rd World democratic heads of state all over the world, lives have been “cherished”? Should Pol Pots life have been “cherished”? Should Jeffrey Dahmer and the like lives have been “cherished”? Should the lives of cops be “cherished” who wantonly shoot down and kill innocent unarmed Blacks — men, women, teenagers and even children — sometimes in a hail of bullets? I could go on and on to make my point about your totally _EMPTY STUPID PLATITUDE_.

    Oh you mentioned the lives of the police that should be “cherished” — BUT YOU DIDN’T SAY *ANYTHING* ABOUT THAT LOVELLE MIXON’S LIFE BEING CHERISHED. You know Mixon’s family and friends and the 500 people who showed up at his funeral cherished his life too — and he was trying to get a job (trying to improve himself) for whose important appointments his parole officer kept missing.

    The cops out in Binghamton, New York, took the *WHITE* MALE GUN MANIAC *alive*, who gunned down and killed 3 cops there. The Oakland cops were so itching to kill Lovelle Mixon (and who knows how he might have been provoked by the cops who are always eager to provoke anyone else Black/Brown) that two (and almost three) more cops got killed rushing in, thinking they were some kind of TV supercops, instead of waiting for back-up like the New York cops did.

    WHEN THE PIGS START CHERISHING *OUR* LIVES (wantonly killing, maiming, beating, tasering, torturing, otherwise brutalizing, abusing, and harassing us), THEN (given other important behavioral improvements on their part) WE MIGHT START CHERISHING THEIRS.

    Soooo we’re suppose to believe that Mixon was trying to improve himself by trying to get a job and his parole officer was the one missing all the appointments. So he shot unarmed police officers because they were keeping him from going to an interview…..? Give me a break! Instead of making excuses for these repeat offenders who terrorize communities and commit crimes against those same people in those communities is a weak argument. It’s people like you who keep making excuses for these young men who actually need to start taking responsibity of their lives, quit trying to take the easy way out by committing crimes and preying on innocent people in their communities. There’s no social program that can replace individual responsibility and hard work. It’s ironic that there is a much higher percentage of black on black crimes ending in death that happens everyday yet there are so many who are outraged about the far less frequent number of police negligently taking a life. Wait do I hear another excuse coming? People need to take responsibility and quit blaming everyone else for their problems. Yes there are those in our society with greater opportunities and resources with which to draw from but guess what? That means if you’re not a part of that group you need to work that much harder. Hangin’ on street corners with gold teeth and baggy jeans smoking weed committing crimes and blaming the man is not a recipe for success.

    You need to stop making excuses for cops who gun down un-armed citizens. Let’s face it, white people can’t believe a black man gunned down 4 white cops. It’s not what happens in the movies. It’s not possible, how could he have out performed those 4-5 cops, well he did! Get over it, those cops had more than a chance with their own weaponry. Cops are afraid of everything, they shoot kids with cell phones for christ sake. To protect and serve one should not fear for his own life, part of the job is to be fearless! Those cops were hunting that kid Mixon plain and simple, they wanted to chase him down like a dog and kill him and so he protected himself for as long as he could, he went out figthing! I’m sure those cops had the best of intentions to help mixon turn his life around right, I’m sure they wanted to take him in alive and give him a start at rehabilitaion, right? Is that what cops really want? Right, a cop would never want to hurt someone un-intentionally right? I mean that wouldn’t be right and fair. I mean what world do you live in Un-consciousness?

    The sooner you wake up and see we live under a government run by cowardly greedy (mostly white) men the sooner you will understand the motives and circumstances that drive the social engineers of this government. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand these basic methods of control and domination. Either you get it or you don’t , if you don’t then open a book. You are a victim of the powers that be. Mixon chose not to be a victim, he made a decision to obtain liberty or death ie:patrick henry. You choose to believe some disney fable of a place called the good ol U.S. of A. That place only existed for white people, now you are waking up and don’t want to see it, so you demonize all that seems wrong and place blame like a preacher on a witch hunt instead of seeing the real reasons and the hands involved here are the powers you put so much hope and faith in.

    Yo, check this out, UN-Conscious — what I wrote in my formal commentary, “Karmic Justice”, April 7, 2009, in the SF Bayview: “…many of us see it as karmic justice, REGARDLESS of WHAT PERSON killed the four – and almost five! – cops, all in a brief afternoon’s work.”

    And that’s just how I feel. PERIOD.

    I ain’t making any *excuses* at all. Ha-ha!!

    “Level of UN-Consciousness”: “blah, blah, blah, blabber, blabber, blabber, yada, yada, yada, blah, blah, blah…, It’s ironic that there is a much higher percentage of black on black crimes ending in death that happens everyday yet there are so many who are outraged about the far less frequent number of police negligently taking a life.”

    IN EVERY SO-CALLED “RACE”, THERE ARE MORE PEOPLE *WITHIN* THEIR “RACE” WHO KILL EACH OTHER THAN DO THE POLICE [OR OTHERS *OUTSIDE* THAT "RACE"] — SSSO *WWHHATT*…!?

    All that shows is that people tend to commit crimes — OF ALL SORTS — against those near them, around them, or against those they have greater direct or indirect access to.

    SO WHAT RACIAL GROUP *DOESN’T* KILL MORE MEMBERS OF THEIR OWN RACIAL GROUP THAN THE POLICE OR OUTSIDERS? — INCLUDING WHITES!

    BUT THOSE MURDERERS ARE *NOT* FUNDED BY THE TREASURY OF THE STATE, ARMED-TO-THE-TEETH WITH EVERYTHING THEY COULD WANT, GIVEN EVEN HELICOPTERS AND ARMORED PERSONNEL CARRIERS, GIVEN A FLEET OF AUTOMOTIVE VEHICLES, PROVIDED A COMMAND-&-CONTROL RADIO TELECOMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM, GIVEN COMPUTER ACCESS TO OUR RECORDS, HAVE THE POWER TO ARREST, AND ARE *NOT* CONSTITUTIONALLY EMPOWERED BY THE _**STATE**_

    –AND THEY ARE NOT GIVEN *STATE FUNERALS* WITH ALL THEIR KIND FLOWN IN, EVEN FROM CANADA(!!), AT STATE EXPENSE, WITH THE MOTORCADE HIGHWAYS CLOSED, IF THEY THEMSELVES ARE KILLED.

    I BET THAT ONLY A *HANDFUL* –IF THAT– OF PEOPLE FROM THE KILLED COPS PATROL BEAT SHOWED UP AT THE FUNERAL: *THAT’S* WHAT TELLS THE STORY — ABOUT HOW PEOPLE THE KILLED COPS ACTUALLY WORKED AROUND ACTUALLY REGARDED THOSE COPS.

    HOW MANY ORDINARY CITIZENS, OR GANGS (BESIDES THE *OTHER* GANG IN BLUE, BUT WEARING A BADGE) CAN BE CAUGHT EXECUTING SOMEONE *POINT BLANK* ON EVEN *DOZENS* OF VIDEO CAMERAS, LET ALONE IN A HAILSTORM OF BULLETS, AND GET *ZZZERO*, OR EXTREMELY LIGHT (AND SERVED IN A COUNTRY CLUB PRISON), SENTENCES?

    Furthermore, Blacks and whites tend to commit crimes in approximately the same percentages. But, Blacks/Browns who commit crimes are more likely to be arrested, are more likely to be prosecuted, are more likely to be charged with a felony for the same –or even *lesser*– crime, are more likely to be convicted, are more likely to be sentenced to prison, are more likely to be given longer prison sentences, and are more likely not to be able to attain a job when they get out THAN A WHITE PERSON. In fact, Blacks with *no* criminal record are unemployed in higher percentages than whites *with* a criminal record: i.e., IT’S STATISTICALLY EASIER FOR A WHITE PERSON WITH A CRIMINAL RECORD TO GET A JOB THAN A BLACK PERSON WITH *NO* CRIMINAL RECORD.

    ———————————————————————-

    “Level of UN-Consciousness”: “Instead of making excuses for these repeat offenders who terrorize communities and commit crimes against those same people in those communities is a weak argument.”

    ———————————————————————-

    “Level of UN-Consciousness”: “Hangin’ on street corners with gold teeth and baggy jeans smoking weed committing crimes and blaming the man is not a recipe for success.”

    WHY DON’T YOU TELL THAT TO ALL THOSE WHITE MALES LIKE YOU WHO KEEP *TARGETING* AND MASS MURDERING COMPLETELY INNOCENT PEOPLE EVERYTIME OF YOU WHITE MALES LOSES A JOB AND YOUR WIFE/GIRLFRIEND.

    I’M SURE IT’S _JUST A MATTER OF TIME_ BEFORE *YOUR* TERRORIZED OR INTIMIDATED AND BEATEN WIFE/GIRLFRIEND –IF A WOMAN WOULD EVEN PUT UP WITH YOU AT ALL– *LEAVES YOU (ESPECIALLY YOU)*, “UN-Consciousness”:

    SOME WHITE ‘LIBERAL’ RACIST, MALE, ARROGANT, ‘KNOW-IT-ALL’, A**HOLE

    –AND WE’LL SEE THE AFTERMATH OF *YOU* ON THE NEWS, AND ALL THE INNOCENT PEOPLE THAT *YOU’VE* TARGETED AND MASS MURDERED AT YOUR JOB AFTER YOU WERE FINALLY FIRED.

    YOU’RE JUST THE WHITE MALE TYPE.

    AND THAT’S EVEN WHAT ONE OF MY HOUSEMATES SAID (Phi Beta Kappa, *MAXED* her Law School Admissions Test, was accepted to every law school she applied to (including STANFORD, BERKELEY, AND HARVARD — AND HARVARD ASKED *HER* TO APPLY), won the best written commendation for Moot Court Competition, was the first in her class to get a job with a major law firm — WHO IS WHITE, FEMALE, AND A SPECIALIST ATTORNEY.

    She doesn’t even bother to talk/type to IDIOTS like you, “UN-Consciousness” — and especially *RACIST IDIOTS* like you. And after this (moreso typed for *public* awareness, not yours, “UN-Consciousness”), I won’t bother with you either.

    Your arguments are weak and more importantly out dated. Yes there is some truth about the travesties committed by whites in the past and an accurate historic account should be taught in our schools. However, I fail to see how these past events justify unlawful and heinour behavior by criminals. If you spent more time looking forward on how you can take individual responsibility, get an education, take care of your family have a work ethic…… you wouldn’t have the time to sit and pout about what happened in the past. But I see, that would take work and its much easier to sit back and blame others. How unfortunate that you have come to this conclusion. Just let the world pass you by while you spend time blaming past transgressions. I would spend more time refuting your illogical and irrational response but guess what, I have a professional job to go to…… and guess what, I work with several professional African Americans who are friends of mine who believe as I do…… If you ever decide to move forward and quit making excuses you’ll find the world a much better place……..

    These cops have been bringing hell on the black community in oakland and have no regard for minority life. they harass people out here and once their shift is over they go home to there wife and kids like nothing happened. The police in america kill a average of one person a day and see no consequence.They think of all minorities as the enemy and show it every day on the job. Me personally i was beaten by the police in east oakland at the age of 12. If they did their job instead of handling social vendettas maybe Lovelle wouldn’t have do much support. No one cared when people in the street were getting killed with automatic weapon but when it happens to police its a major issue not…it shows how the color of your skin shows so much in 09 especially in a community that is mostly african american and hispanics.im not saying what lovelle did was justified but it sure was bound to happen. The opd has been bringing hell for to long. its time for a dose of reality. They need to see what these streets are really like when you do dirt out here. They were under federal investigation for a reason.Oakland Police are dirty as fuck.Just because of this doesnt mean that they deserve medals.

How convenient if the smart young people like Joseph just decide to “move forward” ie forget history, adopt a subservient mentality, and take advice from racists on what will make *his* life better.

    All my adult life I have lived in some of theee most desirable neighborhoods in whatever city I’ve lived in. I work, and I currently live in the chic Elmwood-Rockridge “gourmet ghetto” district of Berkeley. Although I don’t write nearly often enough (and my friends keep pushing me to formally write more), I’ve been published in several venerable political/literary journals, in addition to other smaller and larger prominent publications (including a special features commmentary in the San Francisco Chronicle) in this country (and Canada). I’ve been interviewed on the PBS Newshour, on numerous radio programs, and even on British television about sociopolitical/sociocultural issues. My friends are politically *CONSCIOUS* activists &/or academics at every level — from the grassroots to nationally prominent professors (like Cornel West, Michael Eric Dyson, Ishmael Reed, Richard Majors, Maxine Hong Kingston, Ling Chi-Wang, Makeda Graham, Hatem Bazian…, just to name a few — who would regard you, “UN-Consciousness”, as a *JOKE*). I (and my multicultural housemates) have been internationally travelled to numerous countries and I have friends on every continent.

    WHEN YOU, “UN-Consciousness”, ARE PUBLISHED *ANYWHERE* PROMINENT, YOU LET ME KNOW, OKAY?

    “UN-Consciousness”: “I would spend more time refuting your illogical and irrational response but guess what, I *CAN’T*: ALL I CAN DO IS MAKE _*THE INEVITABLE EXCUSES*_ WHY I **CAN’T**, BUT STILL *CONTINUE* TO RUN MY MOUTH OFF SPOUTING *NOTHING* BUT REACTIONARY WHITE RACIST BARROOM BLATHER AND POSING AS A WHITE LIBERAL!”

    And ‘yeah’, you “have a professional job” [wink-wink] — uh-huh…: that’s why you have *_so much time to write during the day*_, huh? I told you that one of my housemates is a specialist attorney — and she, let alone I, would *never* have that kind of time to write *so often during the day*, lllike youuu obviously dooo. What does that say about *you’re* “work ethic”: does your boss know that you spend all that time, wasting his/her money, online chastising Black and Brown people?

    “UN-Consciousness”: “…and guess what, I work with several professional African Americans who are friends of mine who believe as I do.”

    ‘SURRRRE’ YA DO…, UN-Conscious WHYTE BOY…, UH-HUH…

    SOME OF YOUR “*BEST FRIENDS*” ARE BLACK, HUH…?

    DO *THEY* KNOW IT???…

    BUT, OF COURSE, YOU CAN *NEITHER* _*PUT UP*_ OR _*SHUT UP*_, CAN YOU.

    (Oh, and are they “*professional* African Americans” — HA-HA-HA!! — you might want to ask them — or “African American *professionals*”? First, you better learn to write, o superior whyte boy!)

    I’LL LOOK ON THE BREAKING NEWS ONE DAY FOR YOU IN YOUR ‘WIFE-BEATERS’ UNDERSHIRT, AFTER YOU’VE LOST YOUR JOB AND YOUR DOMESTICALLY ABUSED GIRLFRIEND/WIFE (whomever might have some arrogant boorish white male know-it-all like you *at all*) *FINALLY* BREAKS UP WITH YOU — AND YOU’VE GONE AND KILLED EVERYONE ALL UP IN HER FAMILY, YOUR FAMILY, AND YOUR WORKPLACE, AND THE FIRST 3 COPS THAT SHOW UP, OKAY?

    JUST TELL US YOUR FIRST OR LAST NAME (whichever is relatively less common) SO WE’LL KNOW WHEN IT’S *YYOUU*.

But, if you finally learn to keep your idiot mouth shut, maybe I can get her to take pitty on you and hire you to take out her office garbage!)

    4 less pigs in the world, as far as I’m concerned. If mixon did do any of the dirt the media says he did than this redeemed his past transgressions. He took out four redneck hillbilly pigs, fuck yeah.

    This is why you niggers can’t get ahead. You refuse to play by the rules and choose cop-killers and gangbangers as your heros. Which one of you wants to mop the floor at my local KFC?
