"To Kill or Not to Kill...
Be Killed or Not Be Killed...
....That is NOT our Question ! "
Lovelle Mixon, Oakland Incredible Black Hulk ?
(and the OPD Blue Wall of Silence & Corruption)
By mesha Monge-Irizarry
The delirious Police melodrama-version of what supposedly happened on March 21, 2009, when Lovelle MIxon would have ALLEGEDLY killed 4 cops in 2 separate instances, before being blasted away by OPD is fuller of holes than Swiss cheese, and does reek like something is badly stinking in the kingdom of Oaktown.
1) Have you ever been subjected to a "Traffic Stop", in Oakland, California of all places, and in an alleged "Crime Ridden street corner"?
One cop approaches your car; while other(s) stay at a safe distance, so to eventually call for back up or cover their partner.
"Step out of the car, License and Registration".
All the while, the cop's hand is firmly holding the gun at his side, just to cover all bases.
You panic and try to speed off, the cop grab your steering wheel through the car window,
and the cop shoots you dead.
Or, you reach for the glove compartment or under your car seat to grab your license and registration, you are assumed to "reach for a gun",
and the cop shoots you dead.
Or, you comply too fast and make a "furtive move",
and the cop shoots you.
The cop feared for his life, you dead.
RIP Brother Jody Mac Woodfox, 28, Oakland, 2008
RIP Brother Oliver "Big O" Lefiti, 35, San Francisco
Or, you just run for your life.
Wrong move on the Plantation of the "Slave Catchers", the very origin of the Police Department in the US of A.
Long Live Surviving Warriors Tyrelle Taylor, 17, shot 5 times By Sf Bayview PD, 2005;
and Laronte Sturdville, 15, Oakland, 2007, who committed the violent crime of pulling up his sagging pants while running from OPD, who "feared for their lives".
2) A "desperate man afraid of going back to jail" does not CALMLY blast away two cops, execution style. A desperate man afraid to go back to jail jumps out, cusses and hollers, and starts shooting in a sweeping motion.
RIP Iraq Veteran Hermano Michael Philip Dorado, 21. Salinas, 2008
Or, begs for his life, "Please Don't Kill me!! I live here!!"
RIP Brother Asa Sullivan, 26, shot as many times as his age, 6 times in the face, by SFPD.
3) A "Cleaner" does not take off on foot, without cover, for an ENTIRE BLOCK.
If the Cleaner is struck by a moment of.... unprofessionalism or temporary insanity and sets off running, the surviving cop(s), enraged at their partner's death, takes a clean shot.
RIP Brother Marlon Ruff,32. San Francisco, 2007
4) A "cop killer".... uses TWO DIFFERENT WEAPONS? in TWO SEPARATE SPREES?
less than an hour apart ?
Someone slap me upside the head anytime now, please, my brain is misfiring.
Monster Black Dude, on an incremental rampage, blindly shoots through a closet door, and cleans 2 more cops with precision shots to the head, and as the Monster true to his rap sheet, takes a heroic risk at blasting away his own sister Enjoli Mixon in the process, for good measure.
5)"We are all Amadou Diallo, Sean Bell, Kathryn Johnston, Oscar Grant".
But the cops makes sure we think twice...
about wanting to feel that we are ALL
"Incredible Black Hulk Lovelle Mixon" !
A meticulously crafted Monster-Profile, (punctuated with three mug shots, taken much earlier than at the current age of Lovelle at the time of his execution), is quickly drafted by OPD Public Relations and the corporate press, hardly hours after the killings:
* "long criminal history";
* ALLEGED rape of a 12 yr. kid;
* an estranged wife;
* parole violations;
nothing is missing in terms of speedy, convenience demonization, so that only a handful of Faithful to the Struggle would dare claim:
"We are all Lovelle Nixon !"
6)Then, almost instantly, the pressure applied on Lovelle's Grieving Family gets too intense for words.
His parents publicly apologize to the families of the dead cops, and Caroline Mixon, Lovelle's first cousin, make am astounding statement at the "Oracle" (notice the allegory, almost evoking a canonization....),stage of the cops' funeral, contending that she LOVES the police, on which the Oakland Domestic Violence shelter, where she is employed, heavily depends.
Lovelle's family timidly & periodically cries out
"You know, he was no monster",
too little, too late.
7) A new "Hero", besides the four dead ones, is born:
Officer Patrick Gonzalez, the racist, deranged assassin of Young Brother
Gary King Jr., 21, (Oakland, Sept, 20, 2007),
the very sinister character who priorly Murdered a Black teenager and permanently disabled another Black youngster, paraplegic for life... (tragically, ALL Stolen Lives at the hands of Gonzalez were... Interracial Black Youth with "dreadlocks".... what's up with that....) survives the "second shooting" and instead of nursing his very superficial wounds, "courageously" attends to his agonizing colleagues....
It's... Kill Two Birds with One Stone Time:
Overcast the People's awareness of Gonzalez as serial Killer,
and waste another of 'em "Brothers",
yet another negligible casualty of the War at Home.
8), Although many Justice 4 Oscar Grant Campaign activists and supporting organizations vehemently refuse to draw a parallel between Lovelle's and Oscar's shooting death,
....not to mix apples and oranges and potentially offset the legitimacy of Oscar Grant III Campaign,
the People's critical thinking is rapidly connecting the dots:
*The bar of Oscar's wrongful death law suit filed by Oscar Grant III Family's attorney, John Burris, has been raised to 50 Million;
* 80,000 petitions are being gathered by a Bay Area Interfaith Coalition, towards the firing of Oakland DA Tom Orloff and dismantling Bay Area Rapid Transit Police (incidentally Homeland Security Personnel, to fend off the remote possibility of "terrorism" on Bart);
* and the Free the 100 (protesters arrested during the "Oakland is Burning Riots") movement is gaining formidable momentum.
Ouch, goes "Top Brass".
My department, my White Fraternal Order, my Mayor, My DA, my corporate constituencies, are in deep trouble.
Next "they" will demand an "INDEPENDENT" Police Oversight....
We should better think of a way to crush that "Movement", pronto.
From Racist Murderers to Street Warriors and Heroes, there is just one simple demagogic step for us to take.
Lose some, win much.
Four sacrificial pigs vs. thousands of newly mesmerized lambs,
through one day of madness and alleged sequel shooting rampage,
and we are the Savior Platoon all over again,
"Protecting" and "Serving"their dumb asses,
so they'll think.
Let's pick one of 'em foul N... Among our Industrial Prison Complex.
Let's see...The least likely to muster public empathy....
Let's see....Surely there gotta be one of 'em born losers waiting to exhale his last breath with a bang or two without raising suspicion...
Mixon ! Brilliant !
* Patrick Gonzalez and Tony Pirone ,
we promise you a rapid promotion.!
* Johannes Mehserle,
not to worry Buddy !
We'll cover all your legal fees,
we'll get you out of that slump with flying colors
and added stripes on your bloody sleeve !
"To Kill or Not to Kill ?
Be Killed or Not Be Killed ?
That is NOT Our Question"
Lovelle Mixon, the Oaktown Incredible Black Hulk ???
Think again, "Blue Code of Silence"Monsters.
