Go Kill Yo self! How did Kajieme Powell die?



1:22 am
Insomnia does bad things to people like me who write and overthink way too many things because I love my people. 

Thursday morning, I heard Radio One personality Roland Sebastian Martin (he wears many titles, but the radio is where I heard him on Thur), “going ham” over the killing of Kajieme Powell by the St. Louis police. 

I’ve seen and heard bits and pieces of the video and some radio chatter.  Radio chatter suggests that Powell had a mental condition and was being picked on before he was killed.

Which started my mind to thinking about how some still think mental disorders are funny (no pun, Mr. Williams and R.I.P.), and warrant the individual being picked on.

A trend I’ve read on Facebook from both white and black people (mostly young) is the saying, “Go kill Yo self.” What's that about?

I’m wondering if Mr. Powell (R.I.H.) had heard that one too many times and when the police came…in his mind he went to,”Go Kill Yo self.”

I'm just thinking out loud.

Even if that is what was on his mind - how can the police shoot you down in 23 seconds, hand cuff your corpse, and throw you in a morgue AKA the back of the police car - just like that.  Is it really open season?

(excuse this shitty and unedited post…it’s late…we’ll it’s early 1:38 am now)


Give me you thoughts on this, dear readers.

We need a special prosecutor (FERGUSON)



Ferguson Prosecutor Bob McCulloch

Email CAJD received from National NAACP

We need to talk about Ferguson, CAJD

Not about the protestors—the vast majority of whom are peacefully exercising their First Amendment rights. Not about police militarization, either, which has only escalated tension on the ground.

We need to talk about justice for Michael Brown. Justice rests in the hands of one person: St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch, a man with deep personal, family, and professional ties to the local police department.

This is the man who is supposed to remain unbiased, present evidence to a grand jury, and bring charges against the officer who shot and killed Michael Brown...

CAJD urges all readers to follow the request below. 

Send an urgent message to Missouri Governor Jay Nixon and Attorney General Chris Koster demanding the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate Michael Brown's shooting.http://www.naacp.org/pages/justice-for-michael-brown


Contact the Office of Governor Jay Nixon

Dear CAJD:
Incredible! In less than 24 hours, more than one thousand ColorOfChange members have donated nearly $30,000 to support the St. Louis based Organization for Black Struggle (OBS) in hiring a full-time police accountability organizer.
But we’re not there yet — in order to reach our goal of $50,000 and make it possible for OBS to make this critical hire and continue organizing around rampant police brutality in Missouri, we need to do more.
I am so inspired by the generosity of our members, who are coming together to support strong Black leadership that is making a difference in this critical moment.
Thanks and peace,

Rashad

Saying Farewell to the CAJD Blog soon: How a Republican helped me forgive Deters

Update 8/21.  We are listening to our readers and do see the value of continuing with a justice or Just-us blog and moving away from the focus being about Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters. Keep your feedback coming, much appreciated.


Dearest Readers.

It's been a long time.  About 7 years and close to 600 post.  I'll have an exact number soon.  At the blog we will post 3 more times before saying goodbye.  We will post on Chris Finney who is being paid by the NAACP to represent NAACP President Ishton Morton (oh, the ironies).

We have a post coming up titled Ferguson, Fitzgerald and Deters. (some critical thinking and not an attack post)

Finally, we will post our goodbye to our faithful readers.

We have not decided if we will keep this blog up, or take it down.  You tell us what we should do, Dear Readers. (update 8/18...thanks for the feedback...keep it coming).

Keep in mind that we will post some classic post in this book which is coming soon and available for pre-order.





I made peace  in my heart  with Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters and a Republican helped me do it.  So it's time to say goodbye.  I will continue to fight for justice for all people.

Sheriff Jim Neil is a nice guy! (Judge Tracie Hunter's case)

He's a nice guy!



How tall is Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Neil?

My guess is that he’s over six feet tall.

How did Sheriff Neil defeat the Republican machine candidate Sean Donovan?

Because the black voters in Hamilton County carried his tall ass, that’s how?

Not only did the Republican power houses dump a boat load of cash and endorsements into Donovan’s coffers – they threw the soft and slow spoken Neil under two buses. 

They ran ads stating that he overlooked a dead body in a car during a crime investigation.  One blog supporting Donovan posted this comment about Neil, “Not only is Donovan the ideal Republican, his opponent Jim Neil is a horrific candidate!”

Ouch.

And double damn!

Nevertheless Jim Neil ran a grassroots campaign similar to the campaign that Judge Tracie Hunter ran. 

It was very grassroots with a team of hardworking volunteers who got out there and talked to the people.

As I have volunteered on several campaigns; I would see Neil and his volunteers everywhere including Cincinnati’s black communities. 

Yep, Jim was at the club – Celebrities – campaigning haaaaaaaard.

He promised he would change the culture of the Sheriff’s office, you know break up that Good Ole’ boy club. 

Talking to Jim along the campaign trail he came across as one of the nicest guys in Cincinnati, but he  never displayed strong leadership qualities, although he displayed honor and loyalty. 

Sad to report that it appears that Sheriff Neil is just another do-nothing Democratic Party chair Tim Burke Democrat   Black people have to watch those “Tim Burke Democrats”
(for the record, there are some fine candidates running that have Burke's support that we 100% support)  CAJD blog - we are NOT DEMS.   We are not Repubs. 

If I’m forced to say one good thing about Councilmember Christopher Smitherman (the old Smitherman) is that he warned the community against those type Dems. 

And then.

Wait for it.

He joined one, Mayor John Cranley.  Yep Chris teamed with John.

This blog has been on hiatus taking care of beloved – that beloved son – beloved - beloved - beloved.   

I ain’t got time for this.

I really don’t have time to do any activism work.  Yes, Dear Readers, blogging is activism.
It harms democracy when Sheriff Jim Neil interviews on the Lincoln Ware radio show and admits that he was not watched the video of the Avery Corbin and Vanessa Enoch arrest.  Then he goes on to use key words that Tim Burke Dems use when they come to the black community

“Discretion”   and      “circus”

Translation we arrest certain folk at our “discretion” and we got the radio call stating the courthouse was “circus”

Under Sheriff Neil’s watch.

A man escaped from the Just-us center and two people were arrested and should not have been.
The biggest flaw I have and that we have at this blog (besides being too exhausted to edit) is that we support people who we like.  We like Sheriff Jim Neil.  (In my Nathan Ivey voice) he’s a nice guy.

But nice guys are often ineffective leaders.

I charge you Dear Readers to contact the Sheriff Neil and let your voice be heard.

Be polite ….be respectful……be direct…..Tell Sheriff Neil your opinion…..Black folks carried him to election victory.

NEXT POST COAST ATTORNEY CHRIS FINNEY -  He's making a lot of money with the NAACP paying him to represent the current President - which is ironic because he singlehandly bankrolls every socio-economic justice against black folk, brown folk,  poor white folk, rich white Dems,  progressives, gays....
