"DETERMINATION FOR JUSTICE"

On Monday evening is with great honor to watch our First Lady Michelle Obama‘s speech.  I cried with pride and determination.

As usual with everything that has been taking place with the killing of so many innocent lives are young black men and women, our innocent police officer has left me with so much despair and I felt so lost.
 
There are some really sad and pathetic people who just do not get it.  I did not write my book to glorify my personal life, or my personal experience; I wrote my story because I know that there are many survivors of police officer involved domestic violence and domestic violence, who need to know they are not alone.

When I saw the outcome of the trial for Freddy Gray, and no justice.  I felt lost. I felt “done.” 



I wanted to hide again I wanted to stop speaking out I wanted to give up but then I heard our amazing, outstanding, dynamics, wonderful President Obama’s speech and I knew I must continue the fight.

As an American, as a register voter it is my God given right to shout from the highest mountain, to yell and stomp my feet. “We” will continue to speak out, we will not ignore our brothers and sisters cries.

There are so many other amazing sister survivors who are going to help by any means necessary to continue the fight against police officer involved in domestic violence and domestic violence.

So to Ms. Mosby thank you a million times for speaking out.  I realized so many years ago justice does not prevail but…….I refuse to give up!!!

Be bless my brothers and sisters.

FOR MY SISTER SURVIVOR ON TWITTER

Allow me to introduce myself I am a survivor of domestic violence. But most importantly I am a mother a daughter a sister an aunt and a friend.

I always thought that by being silent I would receive the respect that I deserve. There are those who continue to harass me, discredit me and belittle me here on twitter.





I refuse to go down to their level because I am a law bidding citizen.  I do not accept any bullying, abuse or any injustice of any sort. I am pleading for any help from anyone to stop the constant harassment that I am receiving here on twitter.

Thank you and God Bless!

PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE - ABUSE BY BAD APPLES ON PD

During the 60s for me my memories of police abuse was when my oldest brother shared with me how my one of my brothers, who was always harassed by the police officers in the ninth district here in Philadelphia, PA, he was just a teenager back then.
I remember as a teenager after my brother Albert died I wanted to be a police officer and I thought the next best thing was that I married a police officer. I have nothing but the utmost respect for our men and women in blue but...I will not give respect to those who feel they are above the LAW.

Now 30 years later after my marriage I have experienced and witness some really horrible abuse by police. We have lost many of our brothers and sisters by the hands of abusive police officers.  I always thought that after the Rodney King beating and trial our country would change.  I was wrong and now they are very angry people who decided to take the law into their own hands and no matter what we do not want to kill innocent people.  These officers had nothing to do with the killings and beating of our young men and women.

It has been almost 8 years we voted into office an amazing husband, father, brother, uncle and our 44th President of Untied States of America.  Many have witnessed how he has been treated by our citizens of this great country by Republicans by so many and yet he still holds his head up.  Many want to blame him for people protesting people standing up and wanting to believe that the justice system would hear their crimes.  Stop blaming our PRESIDENT OBAMA!!

You cannot blame Black Lives Matters we are standing up for OUR rights, have many forgotten that this is the land of the free or maybe it never was the land of the free for our Black and Brown people. 

So much massacre and genocide to our Native American brothers and sisters and their babies, still the abuse continues. I recently did a interview with blog talk radio and as I repeatedly said the cries of so many have been ignored and all I have left in me and so many like me is to pray to pray that you will hear the cries of so many.

Be bless always,

God bless the United States of America

"IS IT TOO LATE"

When I decided to write my story of abuse by a Philadelphia high ranking police officer and the Pennsylvania State trooper I knew the risk that I was taking and I knew how many were going to attack me calling me a scorned ex-wife and other pleasant words.
 
For the past six years I have been trying with every ounce of my being to speak to so many about police officer involved in domestic and I have sat back and watched so much injustice through my own personal experience through the courts of Lancaster from seeing my young African-American brothers being murdered, until this very day there is still no justice.


I am not a killer I am not a terrorist I am a SURVIVOR what happened in Dallas should not have happened but we must not forget how millions of Americans witness the murder of two young African American men.  I have and many others have been speaking about the code of silence the blue wall the good old boys network it has been difficult for so many to receive justice, accountability.

Clara Col√≥n, Sherrine, Jen, Jill….. So many survivors have written letters, emails, called, begged, cried, and pleaded yet nothing.   

When I last reached out to Commissioner Ross, I made it very clear to him that we do not want special treatment we just want equal justice. I know that each and every one of us DESERVE EQUAL JUSTICE, NO SPECIAL TREATMENT. 
I am a bit angry how so many of us have been ignored.  

If you were willing to sit with us and listen to us maybe just maybe things could be a lot better but I am not the lawmaker, I am not Congress and I am not a police officer. I am a survivor with the voice.

My prayers are with our country, allow the Great Spirit to give us strength.

Be bless and be safe my BROTHERS AND SISTERS.

"NOTHING HAS CHANGED"

Six years ago today, I decided to self-publish my book, this is my own personal experience of Police Officer Involved Domestic Violence. Since then things have become worse...More beatings, killings and more excuses for abusive cops. I have experienced the injustice of our courts but this abuse of power has not stopped me from helping OUR SURVIVORS! I WILL CONTINUE TO FIGHT FOR OTHERS...Be bless my brothers and sisters.
