    Flynn said that he decided to terminate Manney based on an Internal Affairs investigation, and while he would not say whether the former officer should face criminal charges, he did acknowledge “errors of judgment, but no malice” in Manney’s handling of the confrontation. “There’s got to be a way for us to hold ourselves accountable absent putting cops in jail for making mistakes,” he said”

    Let me repeat what the Police Chief Flynn said

    "There’s got to be a way for us to hold ourselves accountable absent putting cops in jail for making mistakes"

    Making a mistake, that took the life on an innocent unarmed mad. We must hold ourselves accountable because the cops don’t know when to not shoot an unarmed man

    Here’s your Milwaukee Police Department

    READ IT AND WEEP: Because the more things change …

    Just a few facts to put some of this in context:

    • Louis and Mamie Till separated in 1942
    • Louis Till was drafted by the Army to serve in WW2 in 1943
    • Mamie Till learned that her ex-husband, Pvt. Louis Till, died in Europe in 1945… 10 YEARS BEFORE EMMETT’S MURDER
    • The Till family was NEVER told that the FBI would not investigate because they didn’t want to bring negative attention to America racism during the height of the Cold War, when their only concern was defeating a competing ideology called Communism
    • On September 15, 1955, Jet Magazine printed the photo of Till’s mangled corpse, focusing on his bloated, almost unrecognizable face. John Johnson, Publisher of Jet, admitted in his 1989 memoir that he had serious reservations in 1955 about publishing the gruesome photo BUT DID SO BECAUSE HE HAD A RESPONSIBILITY TO SHOW BLACKS THE EXTENT OF THE SAVAGERY OF THE ATTACK ON TILL.
    • Thanks to the bravery and political savvy of Mrs. Mamie Till-Mobley, who understood THE PR VALUE OF ALLOWING THE BARBARITY OF AMERICAN RACISM TO BE SEEN BY THE ENTIRE WORLD, the story and image of Emmett Till went 1955 viral, turning an international spotlight on American hypocrisy as it marched the globe trying to ‘spread democracy.’ Mike Brown seen lying in the street for 4 hours could have had a similar effect… but unlike Mrs. Till-Mobley, Mrs. Brown decided, quite understandably mind you, that she didn’t want people to see her son that way. And of course that was just fine by the Ferguson PD and US Mainstream Media, neither of whom wanted the rest of us to know of the barbarity done to Brown.
    • "I thought about Emmett till, and I could not go back. My legs and feet were not hurting, that is a stereotype. I paid the same fare as others, and I felt violated. I was not going back." ~ Rosa Parks

    … they’re doing the exact same shit today, in terms of the White House and Department of Justice ignoring the systematic brutalization and murder of Black people under the guise of it being a ‘State’s rights’ issue, because they believe foreign policy issues ALONE should garner Federal attention. Not to mention the immediate rush by the media to slander the victims rather than seek out justice.

    The more you know about American history …
