Russell Simmons: America Has Not Seen Protests Like Those That Are Coming if Justice Doesn’t Start to Come Down. http://tiny.iavian.net/3la4
Russell Simmons, co-founder of Def Jam Recordings, appeared on CNN last night on Out Front with Erin Burnett to warn there are more protests coming if “demands” were not met.
We are seeing the beginning of the end of police policing the police, he added.
“On Wednesday, we are going to ask for indictments and list of achievable demands.” (‘We’ referring to high profile celebrities and athletes that share Simmons’ beliefs.)
“And America has not seen protests like those that are coming if justice doesn’t start to come down,” warned Simmons.
Simmons told Burnett, “Over 150K cases were brought before the grand Jury and and only 11 cases didn’t come back with indictments. It’s like lightening striking the black community over and over and over again.
NOTE TO SELF: 150,000 — 11 = 149,989 Indictments. You would think a good portion of these indictments would fall into the categories he is looking for.
We need special oversight committees, we shouldn’t leave it to DAs who work with the police, explained Simmons.
Burnett asked, “You don’t feel defeated that has happened again and again and again” to which Simmons responded “We’re going to get indictments now because America hasn’t seen what’s coming.”
“When people understand the injustice properly, the way these protestors understand it, they’re all going to fight for justice, and that’s going to change this system.”
