Administration at Sharon High School is allowing students to use the excuse of black history month to promote a hateful anti-police agenda:
Yup, Sharon High School is accepting and apparently endorsing it. This has been brought to their attention and they’re cool with it. “Hands up, don’t shoot.” As in, “please don’t shoot me Mr. racist police officer.”
Just so we’re clear – hands up don’t shoot was a lie that has been thoroughly debunked by President Obama’s Justice Department. That’s a fact, not an opinion. There’s no debate. Even the Washington Post, an organization that has been very supportive of the black lives matter movement, has said this time and time again. Michael Brown assaulted a store owner, and then proceeded to attack a cop trying to question him, tried to steal his gun, and was shot in the process. That’s why Darren Wilson was not even indicted to be put on trial, never mind convicted of any sort of crime.
Yet Sharon High School is allowing this banner honoring Michael Brown and the lie that built a cop-hating movement in this taxpayer funded public high school.
Some of the other names you might be less familiar with. Trayvon Martin is certainly most prominent, and the only one on that list who wasn’t killed by a cop. I’ve always been team Trayvon. George Zimmerman is human garbage and a psychopath. He’s a career loser who thought he was a real cop, stalked his victim, ended up getting his ass beat for doing so, and then shot Trayvon, who was not trying to take his gun, because he was too much of a pussy to use his fists.
But any beef about Trayvon has nothing to do with the cops since he was not killed by a cop.
The rest of the names on there were all justifiable.
John Crawford – walked around Walmart waving a BB gun rifle that many assumed was real and didn’t follow police commands:
According to initial accounts from the officers, Crawford did not respond to verbal commands to drop the BB gun/air rifle and lie on the ground, and eventually began to move as if trying to escape. Believing the air-rifle was a real firearm, one of the officers fired two shots into Crawford’s torso and arm. He died of his injuries shortly afterwards.
Ezell Ford – died trying to take a gun out of a cop’s holster who he had just assaulted and was on top of:
Smith said as they were walking towards him Ford “whirled around and basically attacked the lead officer.” Wampler told investigators he had approached Ford from behind and pulled back his shoulder with the intention of handcuffing him. The officers and an LAPD spokesman said in August 2014 that Ford had “tackled” one of the officers and that a struggle ensued after Ford tried to remove the officer’s handgun from its holster. Smith said Ford “grabbed the officer around the waist, threw him to the ground and was laying on top of the officer” when he was shot. In Beck’s account, Wampler and Villegas told detectives that Ford had been on top of one of the officers and reaching for the officer’s gun when they both opened fire. Wampler told investigators he had been tackled by Ford and had landed on top of Ford, but Ford rolled over immediately and took the top position. Villegas responded by pushing his knee into Ford’s back and attempting to handcuff him. Wampler said he then felt Ford grasping at his holstered pistol. Villegas said he feared for his life and that of his partner and shot Ford in the arm, then at Wampler’s urging fired a second round into Ford’s side. Wampler said Ford continued to resist, causing him to retrieve his backup gun and used it to reach around Ford and shoot him in the back. Smith said Ford had been on the ground when he was shot, and said “This was an extremely rapidly unfolding event. Basically the fight was on.”
Dante Parker – Died because of drugs, and heart disease after resisting arrest and getting tazed. Officers were exonerated:
The death of a 36-year-old Victorville man after he was stunned with a taser multiple times during his arrest by San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies was accidental, authorities said Wednesday. The Riverside County coroner’s office said Dante Parker died due to acute PCP intoxication with a noted significant condition of hypertensive cardiovascular disease, heart conditions caused by high blood pressure.
Dontre Hamilton – Mentally ill man who died while beating a cop with his own baton:
As Manney began to pat down Hamilton, Hamilton fought him, and a confrontation ensued. Manney tried to use his baton to subdue Hamilton, but Hamilton got control of it and swung at Manney, hitting him on the side of the neck, according to Milwaukee police internal affairs.
Tanisha Anderson – Mentally ill woman whose own brother called the cops on her, and then said things that made her go nuts while sitting inside a police car. Ended up dying after kicking officers and being thrown to the ground and handcuffed. Officers were exonerated in a court of law:
Three years of investigation and judicial reviews into the death of Tanisha Anderson ended Friday when a Cuyahoga County grand jury declined to bring criminal charges against Cleveland police officers who handcuffed her and let her lie on the ground shortly before she died.
Every single one of those deaths was tragic, but all of them were avoidable. No cop was ever charged in any of those because they never committed a crime. That’s how due process works in a free society. Those who have not committed a crime do not get charged with a crime.
Apparently Sharon High School disagrees with how our system of due process and the rights of police officers to protect themselves from violence. Apparently the Principal of Sharon High School, Jose Libano, would have rather seen Ezell Ford kill the police officer he was trying to take a gun from. Or they blame the cops for mental illness. Not sure what other explanation there is for the school endorsing this banner.
Then there’s black panther leader Huey Newton. Here’s another guy worth celebrating during black history month. His Google trophies include stabbing a dude, shooting a cop, shooting a chick who called him “baby,” assaulting his tailor for calling him “baby,” supporting mass murderer Jim Jones and his cult, and fleeing to Cuba to avoid prosecution:
Newton had been convicted of assault with a deadly weapon for repeatedly stabbing another man, Odell Lee, with a steak knife in mid-1964. He served six months in prison and by October 27–28, 1967, he was out celebrating release from his probationary period. Just before dawn on October 28, Newton and a friend were pulled over by Oakland Police Department officer John Frey. Realizing who Newton was, Frey called for backup. After fellow officer Herbert Heanes arrived, shots were fired, and all three were wounded. One witness testified that Newton shot Frey with Frey’s own gun as they wrestled
Newton was convicted in September 1968 of voluntary manslaughter for the killing of Frey and was sentenced to 2 to 15 years in prison. Writer Hugh Pearson, in his book Shadow of the Panther, alleges that Newton, while intoxicated in the hours before he was shot and killed, claimed to have willfully killed John Frey
On August 6, 1974, Kathleen Smith, an 18-year-old Oakland native, was shot; she died three months later. According to the prosecutor handling the case, Newton shot Smith after a casual exchange on the street during which she referred to him as “Baby”, a childhood nickname he hated. Newton is also alleged to have assaulted his tailor, Preston Callins, after Callins called him “Baby”. Newton posted bond after being arrested for pistol-whipping Callins. Newton was subsequently arrested a second time for the murder of Smith, but was able to post an additional $80,000 bond, thus securing his release until trial.
Newton and his girlfriend (later his wife) Gwen Fontaine then fled to Havana, Cuba, where they lived until 1977, which prevented further prosecution on the two charges.
Once again, this is an individual that Sharon High School sees fit to honor during black history month. Meanwhile there are countless African-Americans who have contributed in many positive ways to our society. Congressman John Lewis is an American hero who was present at pretty much every major civil rights event in the 60’s. Jesse Owens stood up to Hitler and won multiple gold medals at the Berlin Olympics, thus disproving racial superiority lies. Or how bout you just find someone alive today who is actively working in black communities to help kids go to college. Ya know, someone actually contributing something positive to society. There are so many great people who have shaped this country that Sharon High School could be teaching kids about during black history month.
But Sharon High School is not honoring them. Just Huey Newton and some people who died trying to kill cops.
This is most insulting to the many kids at Sharon High whose parents are cops. This banner suggests that their mothers and fathers are part of an organization that kills innocent black people for sport. But the fact of the matter is that cops are the best thing that has ever happened to the black community. The second they step down policing efforts in places like Baltimore the black murder rate skyrockets. Once again, these are facts. Facts don’t care about your feelings.
If you think this is inappropriate for display in public school feel free to email Principal Libano and let him know:
