NY Commissioner Bratton Says Race had Nothing to Do With It!

Tennis Star James Blake, once ranked number four in the world as a professional player, was attacked by some of NYPD’s finest. Officer James Frascatore “slammed” Blake to the ground and handcuffed him in a case of mistaken identity. They had a witness, so without questioning him or asking him if they could speak with him, the policeman tackled him to the ground, and his brothers in blue helped him cover up what he did. Police Commissioner Bill Bratton says it wasn’t racially motivated. He fit the description the suspect “looks like the twin brother of Mr. Blake.” Well…he wasn’t his twin. The crime that he was allegedly suspected of was credit card theft not murder. So what warranted this man being thrown to the ground, without a word to him.

The police officer could have asked him some questions, possibly allowing him to provide you with his I.D. show you the U.S. Open card he had in his pocket. But according to Bratton, race had nothing to do with it. Eric Garner got choked to death for pedaling cigarettes. I guess we should THANK GOD you weren’t murdered. Bratton, says it wasn’t race related, but James Blake thought it was and he kept talking about it, which is the only reason the situation was addressed. There are some good police out there…somewhere. Race related, we can’t always say that’s the case, but a lot of times in urban communities, it fits the description. What do you think, SaySomethingLA.

Hmmm…Caitlyn Jenner the Traditionalist

So, I’m just catching bits and pieces of this conversation. Caitlyn (Bruce) Jenner was on the Ellen Show. I’m not sure if aired today or yesterday. Somehow marriage came up, and basically Caitlyn said as a traditionalist, marriage is between a man and a woman; however, she would never stand in the way of any ones happiness. Ellen said it was confusing but she looked kind of pissed, and went on the Howard Stern show and stated that she was taken aback. Caitlyn (Bruce) Jenner said, “If that word ‘marriage’ is really, really that important to you, I can go with it.” Ellen response and I’m just giving my take were you wanting people to accept you, and yet you stand in judgment of me. I like Matthew 7, on a lot of the policies of today. Was there some hypocrisy going on, or does a man who now wants to be a woman get to be against same sex marriage. It was confusing or was it just me…Say Something L.A.
