    “Tyranny is defined as that which is legal for the government but illegal for the citizenry”.-Thomas Jefferson

    A citizenry has both a right and a responsibility to stand up an demand to be heard when injustice becomes the norm rather than the exception. The actions of the police as reported by both the mainstream media and not -so-mainstream show the beginnings of a police state min America. MLK wouldn’t have been half the force he was without the threat of militant communities willing to fight for what he was talking about.

    It’s true that laws are written by elected officials but the question is who elects them? Disenfranchised communities are those who are first marginalized and victimized by the government put in place to protect them.

    I don’t think that violence is always the answer but sometimes you need to plunk the giant in the head to get it to pay attention.
