Tasered while praying.

I really wish I could get worked up over a latte salute like conservatives (I suppose a doggie salute would have been cool), or climate change and sustainable energy like my friends on the left, but as a black man in America I have more pressing things to worry about these days.


Not getting shot or tasered by the people who are supposed to protect and serve me is very high on my list as I write this post.


I mean even if you are a black man who serves the Lord you are going to have issues with the po po.


"A family told Channel 11 it is suing police after an alleged incident after their son was shot and died in the hospital.

The Rev. Earl Baldwin Jr. said when his stepson, Mileek Grissom, died in UPMC Mercy Hospital’s emergency room, police officers crossed the line.

“I needed to tell him his family was going to be OK.  I was going to do everything I could to make sure they were OK,” Baldwin said.

Video shows Baldwin being ripped away from Grissom by a group of police officers.  One officer used a Taser on Baldwin.

UPMC claims Baldwin was interfering with attempts to revive his stepson.

“Watch the video.  Not only was the child not being treated.  The child was dead,” said the Baldwin’s family attorney, Joel Sansone.

According to Sansone, police stopped Tori Baldwin in front of the hospital, refusing to let her see her son.

“I wanted to rub his head.  I wanted to kiss him.  I know he was calling for his mom,” said Tori Baldwin.

Pittsburgh police did not comment Thursday after Channel 11 talked to the family.  Police will be required to publicly respond to the lawsuit claims in a matter of days."

Now let's be clear, the Baldwin family might not have been acting according to the rules of the hospital while their son lay dead. But I think the police could have been a bit more sensitive in the situation.


Speaking of "people of faith", I am saddened to see that  my white evangelical brothers and sisters believe that they are being
discriminated against more than the Negroes, the Jews, and the evil Moooslims.


"The Pew Forum has released a doozy of a poll about religion in public life in the United States showing that white evangelical Christians possess grossly overdeveloped feelings of victimhood. Given that the voting bloc evangelicals comprise is one of the most heavily pandered to in American politics, and given the fact that evangelicals themselves are the cause of some very real discrimination, there is thus a mountainous irony at play here.


In a survey of 2,002 Americans, Pew found that 72% believe that religious influence is waning in the country, and sadly, 56% regard this as a “negative development.” A disturbing 59% of Americans say they want members of Congress to “have strong religious beliefs.” When it comes to discrimination, believe it or not, more Americans think that evangelicals are discriminated against than atheists. " [Source] 


I feel their pain. But somehow I don't think that they have to worry about being shot or tasered after they leave a prayer- meeting or choir practice.

Oh yeah evangelicals have a very real persecution complex. I guess it's time to get ready for Fox New's annual war on x-mas freakout. Get the popcorn ready.

I'm skeptical about this business with the reverend and his stepson. It feels like something is missing from this story. Even racism would not explain why the police were so intent on hustling him out of there.

I'll wait for more detail on this one.

I see more and more Blacks are turning to FOX NEWS with bags of popcorn. No wonder the ratings for black viewers are skyrocketing.

It makes sense, though. FOX is the only place where Blacks can get see and hear what the MSM fails to report.

It's encouraging to read comments from PilotX regarding FOX NEWS. As a brother, he watches and already is looking forward to spending his XMAS holidays watching FOX....me too. It's the best!

Tell us about the times you have been tasered by the cops.

Not been acting according to the rules?

Did you notice how long it took for the liberal media to use the word islam/muslim when talking about the oklahoma beheading?


Can you imagine the liberal media running cover for a christian killing an abortion doctor?


Not all religions are equal to democrats.

A WOMAN WAS BEHEADED IN OKLAHOMA. THE MAN WHO BEHEADED HER WAS A MUSLIM AND HAD BEEN CONVERTING OTHERS, TO MUSLIM RELIGION.

Just so some of you know, especially Mr Field and PilotX who have been great defenders of Muslims, The beheading in America has begun...the war is coming to us. Oklahoma is just the tip of the iceberg.

It will be interesting to see what Field has to say in defense of the Muslim who beheaded an innocent woman.

This beheading in America by a Muslim is scary. Will there be more converts to do the same?

Mr Field, and Mr PilotX, your support of Muslims is unjustified and irrational.

You guys need to watch FOX more because your thinking is off-the-chart. You guys are crazy.

Anonymous said...

Dear Field, Check out the 'color' of the man who recently had been converted to Islam and did the beheading. I was very surprised because I thought he would have been White. Hmmmmm. I wonder what this proves? Make sure you watch FOX next week for an in-depth analysis:

Maybe FN can write about Carmen Segarra and her recordings.


Of course it's about goldman sachs.

Considering the obama connection to goldman sachs, FN will be muzzled again.


Not all evil Big Banks are equal to democrats.

Maher Tears into PC Liberals: Where’s Your Outrage on Violent, Oppressive Islam?
...
And what really ticked Maher off is that liberals “go nuts over the tiniest violations of these values” like when it’s Donald Sterling or Rush Limbaugh saying stupid things, but actual physical abuse, like mutilations and honor killings, receive silence from the tolerant left.

People not afraid to speak truth to power see the difference some religions are treated.

Relax Bill, your friends at the KKK rally in DC this weekend (AKA as the "Value Voter's Summit") will have plenty to say. ;)

Everyone who watches Fox should bring their popcorn. Because it is a work of fiction -- an entertainment venue, not a news source.

If an evangelical Christian murdered an abortion doctor, his religion might be newsworthy. But not if he just killed some random person.

This dude in Oklahoma killed one coworker and injured two others after being fired from his job, because he's crazy. He's not affiliated with any terror group, and the people he attacked weren't any kind of strategic target. There's absolutely no reason to believe that this was a political act. The fact he is a Muslim is pure coincidence.

Man, are you ever dumb. Don't stay in one place too long -- someone might water you.

Talking about obama and goldman sachs brings this reaction?

I'll take that as no you will not cover the goldman sachs tapes.
No worries, righties didn't like to admit to much during the bush year either.


I notice you have fun mocking christians and catholics.

Do you ever mock muslims?


Not all religions are equal to you?

TNB rationale. The fact that he is a Muslim and 'beheaded' a woman is purely coincidental?

Maybe you aren't aware, but beheading is very much "Muslim". It is quite common today.

You are definitely a brother from the hood....Stupid with the inability to think straight. You are probably a Muslim too.

Thank you anon @ 2:41pm. Actually the dumbest comment made thus far today by an anon calling another anon dumb is

by anon @ 12:41PM who said:

"There's absolutely no reason to believe that this was a political act. The fact he is a Muslim is pure coincidence."

Now I ask you, WHO in America would think about "beheading" people?

How many beheadings--and this is just the beginning--must happen in our country before some dumb-ass like anon figures out that 'maybe' it is not coincidental?

PilotX said...

Maybe the conservative crowd would have felt better if dude had shot up a pre-school.

Anonymous said...

Americans would have at least related to a "shooting". But a "beheading?" Get real, PX. You know damn well there is a cultural difference, a religious difference and a difference in mind-set. You just can't admit you are wrong. You'd rather see more beheadings than to admit you are wrong. You are so immature and dishonest. You lie a lot. TNB.

It's too bad FP does not appear regularly FN because these events show signs a potential religious war that nobody is talking about...IMHO..

==========================================
Nice statement. It pretty much sums it all up, doesn't it? Meanwhile in Ferguson news, the local Kmart has announced it is closing in December. About 100 employees will lose their jobs. And so it begins, the first of many to come. The price of a riot and ongoing violence now comes due.

Yes, those $8 an hour jobs at K-Mart are really going to make a difference in their lives. *eye roll*

Anonymous said...

How do you know what difference it makes? I wonder how they feel when the main means of payment happens to be an EBT card from 70% Black Ferguson? So much for another underperforming store. Of course it's just the beginning of the exodus. They might as might well start the name change. I kinda like West St. Louis which will show some kinship to its "sista" city, East. St. Louis.

My dear Field,
There is one other thing. I'm sure you've heard of food deserts and this is how they're created. Kmart employees do have significant discounts especially on groceries. That means that they're more likely to get healthier food at better prices. Once food deserts form, the residents there will pay more for less nutritious food. Fringe vendors will often have large markups of up to 60%. There's also a lot of data showing big increases in BMI and the health effects that creates within food deserts. Distance and the cost of travel squeeze every dime they can out of the residents. My God man, they might be your people, but we are all Americans. Behavior matters and there are consequences. It's not just about blaming YT.

Anon, it feels like i am whispering in the wind over here.

really.

it gets Real tiresome after awhile.

particularly when dealing with folk that are determined not to see nor speak on what is plain as day. they keep spewing fairy tales/lies while claiming His Word = fairy tales.

yep.

folk will pretend BM go 'round BEHEADING folk when they lose a job. then try to make jokes about it.

what a coward this fella was. so you get behead folk happy then roll up on a WOMAN.

yea.

about.that.

NO after life, virgin sex for you homie.

lol.

no disrespect of Real Islam. just trying to find a way to smile at the madness...

i have already told folk 'bout the religious war that is on tap. already shared that the rape/murder of men, women and children comes with it. shared already the laws on the books, right now, that once enforced will cause the guillotines to roll out...

it is plain as day...or at least should be for those that don't know Him/His Word. something is wrong/up. duh.

for those that know Scriptures, what is written is quite clear. so either the world is acting out the last chapters of Revelation, or what is written is Real...

confession:

i am trying to work through my strong dislike of commenting here.

at a certain point joking, scary, non helpful, non supportive negroes + hateful, lost esau reps get Real old.

i find it vexatious to my Spirit. a set up to fail...when i go to verbally whacking folk. so i try to minimize what i have to say. not to mention it feels like i have said it all before. for years.

the upside:

i am with Him + determined to run with Him 'til my last breath.

everything else= whatever.

:)

blessings all!
