As everyone probably knows by now, an unarmed African American kid was recently shot and killed by a Madison police officer. Thanks to the amazing Chris Taylor, there is currently an independent investigation going on to see what exactly happened and why.
We do not have the full information on what happened yet. The only thing we know for certain is that Anthony Robinson, was unarmed and is no longer with us. Starting from the night that Mr. Robinson was shot, there have been peaceful protests. Protests involving, community, clergy, students, children, family, etc... All have been very peaceful. Even Mr. Robinson's family has called for peaceful protests.
There was even a conscious effort to establish that Madison is not Ferguson.
The family of an unarmed biracial 19-year-old killed by police in Madison, Wisconsin, is pushing for peaceful protests online and in the streets.
"Our hands are stained with the blood of my nephew, and we are all left to deal with the aftermath," Turin Carter, the teen's uncle, told reporters on Monday.Carter stressed that his family wasn't anti-police, but said Tony Robinson's death "highlights a universal problem with law enforcement and how its procedures have been carried out ... specifically as it pertains to the systematic targeting of young black males."But he said the problem goes beyond the chants of "black lives matter" that have already been used at protests over the case."I encourage everybody to show support regardless of race because this is truly a universal issue. ... We don't want to stop at just 'black lives matter,' because all lives matter," he said.
"We're looking beyond Ferguson. And we're also looking at our community to make sure that we are proactive in a way, that what has happened in New York, what happened in Ferguson, won't happen here," African American Council of Churches President Bishop Harold Rayford said.That there are responsible peaceful protests yet again in Madison is not sitting very well with the Michael Grebe funded propaganda machine called Wisconsin Reporter. So they decided to step in to fan the flames.
‘Young, Gifted & Black’ looks to turn Madison into next Ferguson
Seriously, the first time that violence in these protests was mentioned was the hard core right wing Waukesha based propaganda machine and their gopher - Matt Kittle.
Matt Kittle, Michael Grebe, Eric O'Keefe, Scott Walker, et al, would like nothing better than than to have race riots erupt in "liberal" Madison. This is what they are doing in front of the scenes, I hate to think of what they are doing behind the scenes.
Full disclosure, my wife took our 12 yar old son to a candle light vigil on the Sunday after the shooting. There were many children there. zero threats of violence, but lots of prayers, speeches, hugs and tears.
It is sad that this is what the right wing in Wisconsin has become. It is sad that stoking fear, and hatred is what Wisconsin Reporter thrives off of.
It is time for this BS to end.
Please send a message to MD Kittle of No More race baiting, fear, hatred and inert racism.
