The hallmark of a “friendly fire” investigation is TRANSPARENCY. Obscuring facts & offering excuses isn’t friendly. Repeatedly referring to as “suspect or subject” isn’t friendly. It’s hostile, irreverent & disrespectful. We reject the friendly fire classification.

This story has become a Rorschach Test for gun policy. Something both sides can agree on: Jemel Roberson, because of his bravery, saved lives and it an absolute tragedy that his own life was cut short. He died a hero.

Welp. Someone has been doing the math and realized overt racism & sexism is not going to get him a second turn no matter how adamantly the right suppresses black votes. A week ago he was a “failed socialist who runs one of the worst & most corrupt cities in America.”

What’s this man’s name? This at Smith’s grocery store in Las Vegas. South Highlands. A Latina woman and her mother were simply talking in the parking lot when he started berating them. I need to know his name. Be a bigot and we will make you famous for it.

STOP PRAISING FOLKS FOR ACKNOWLEDGING THE DAMN KNIFE THEY STUCK IN OUR BACKS! Trump/Session policy has set back criminal justice reform 3 decades and now they are searching for votes by simply talking reform with no demonstrated results.

Last week she bragged about wanting to be in the front row of a lynching. This week Mississippi Senator just openly said she hopes to make voting more difficult for the people likely to vote against her. Utterly shameful.

Why? Because his writings denounced the brutal war in Yemen. Then his death should usher in the end of that war and the associated human rights atrocities.

ALERT: officials have appealed this morning's court order giving voters addl time to cure issues w/ mail & provisional ballots. It is unfortunate when officials take action intended to silence voters and lock them out. Call 866-OUR-VOTE for updates.

That is exactly the definition of friendly fire.

Despite eye-witness accounts that was wearing clothing labeled SECURITY in bright white letters & bystanders were shouting that he was security— investigators claim“all the shooter saw was black.” That is exactly the problem. It seems all cops ever see is black.

A good guy with a gun that stopped a mass shooting while doing his job as a security officer was instead killed by an Midlothian officer and you have yet to say his name. He was our friend and musician of many and we loved him.
