Commentary by Diane Bukowski

The video above tells the clear story of a police cover-up in the brutal murder of Kenneth Harding, 19, by police as he ran from them July 17 in the predominantly Black and poor Bayview neighborhood of San Francisco.

To read earlier story, click on http://voiceofdetroit.net/2011/07/19/%e2%80%9cwhy-should-you-die-for-a-transfer%e2%80%9d/. That post also details police claims that they found a gun picked up by a bystander in a “parolee’s” house. In an obviously fabricated video, an alleged bystander says he spotted the gun and points it out in HIS video.  The police say that due to his help, they located the gun and are running ballistics tests.

Now–do tell–suddenly they say they DO NOT HAVE THE GUN, and that Kenneth Harding likely shot himself because the caliber of the bullet they claim killed him (380 9 mm.) doesn’t match police bullets. Anyone ever heard of police throwaway guns. NO? Better educate yourself before you fall victim to one as did Lamar Grable in 1996, victim of three-time killer Eugene Brown, and family patriarch Tommy Staples, Jr., shot to death in an alley by cops in retaliation for his advocacy for youth being harassed by police.

A second video on the tape above details the police killing of a homeless man at a BART station in Oakland July 3. Police claimed he threw a knife at them, and that he had two knives, the exact same description Eugene Brown gave after he murdered Rodrick Carrington in 1995. Now it’s throwaway knives, too.

After watching the video above, it struck me that the same dynamic is operating in San Francisco as operates in Detroit with regard to brainwashing by the major media and so-called “peace advocates” in bed with the police.

The reporter in the video above asks leading questions regarding whether people on the T-train, who are being videotaped, agree with what the police did. “Yes” one says (the police are watching this, remember). But then the older gentlemen blurts out that the “police are messing with everybody in Bayview.”

Then the representative of “Brothers Against Guns” says people at the public meeting should have given the police chief more respect. Remind anybody of the Detroit 300 and other so called community activists speaking on the same platform with the top cops?

No wonder there has been no uprising in this city against the murder of seven-year-old Aiyana Jones last year, and the fact that Prosecutor Kym Worthy has yet to bring charges against killer cop Joseph Weekley and the rest of the SRT team that bombed her home and killed her. Families of Eugene Brown’s victims also demanded she bring charges after exposure of the infamous internal police document, “The Shoulders Report,” which said Brown should be charged,, several years ago. But all the cops involved in all these shootings are still on the police force. What is wrong with the people of Detroit and elsewhere?

Did 7-year-old Aiyana Jones have a gun too?

As Frederick Douglass said, “If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will. Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or both. The limits of tyrants are proscribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress… ”
