Nephew of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas Tasered - While Black?

Talk about High Tech Lynching...

A New Orleans TV station, USA Today, The Washington Post, Democratic Underground, Tasered Nation along with alternative news outlets are reporting that hospital security beat down Clarence Thomas' Suicidal, Epileptic Nephew. Ouch!

The nephew, Derek Thomas, is epileptic and suffered a seizure after being stunned, his family told ABC-affiliate WGNO.

He was taken to West Jefferson Medical Center in Marrero after a possible suicide attempt yesterday. His family said that after he refused to put on a gown, guards punched him in the lip, grabbed his hair and shocked him.

The family said doctors knew Thomas is epileptic but directed that he be stunned to restrain him. No comment from the hospital so far.

The station says Justice Thomas is expected to travel to New Orleans "as soon as possible." 

OMG, maybe the tasering of Americans will get some attention now that nephew of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has been tortured with a taser. 

Bloggers such as, Pam's House Blend, The Afrospear, The Police Brutality BlogTasered While BlackHullabaloo, Tasered Nation, Electronic Village,Wonkette, Black Women in Europe™ Blog, THE INTERSECTION | MADNESS & REALITY,Jack and Jill Politics, Electrocuted While Black, and a number of other bloggers have been paying close attention to the issue of Taser Torture. It's too bad Clarence Thomas was not concerned , until now...

When I tried to get the conversation about taser abuse going at the so-called liberal blog, the Daily Kos.. there was limited concern until the nephew of Clarence Thomas got tasered. I guess it news worthy now.

Justice Denied For Oscar Grant

Tell me it's not true! Tell me that a white former transit officer was not just convicted of involuntary manslaughter yesterday in the videotaped shooting death of an unarmed black man on an Oakland train platform. Tell me it's not true. Will black men ever get full justice in America?

Yes prosecutors wanted Johannes Mehserle convicted of murdering 22-year-old Oscar Grant, who was shot once in the back as he lay face-down. Now we learn that the jury's conviction on the lesser charge as spark a repeat of rioting that followed the shooting on New Year's Day in 2009. 

The Washington Post reports the incident is among the most racially polarizing cases in California since four Los Angeles officers were acquitted in 1992 in the beating of Rodney King. 

AAPP: It's past time for the Federal government to step into this case.  The Daily Caller.com reports the justice department’s civil rights division will conduct the review along with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in San Francisco and the FBI, said spokesman Alejandro Miyar, who declined further comment. The investigation will determine whether the case warrants federal prosecution. Federal officials planned to begin their review at the conclusion of the state’s case against Mehserle, who still faces sentencing. The next hearing was set for Aug. 6. It's really time for Eric Holder to step in on this case and file Federal charges. Bring a change of venue to Washington, DC so that bad cop can be convicted by a black jury.

No justice no peace?

Clinton/Obama Defend Robert Bird/KKK Ties

Why is it that Bill Clinton and President Barack Obama are getting a pass for and giving a pass to the late Senator birds recruitment history with the KKK?

Yes, I'm raising the question on my BlogTalkRadio program tonight. Check out how Bill Clinton excuses his so-called "fleeting association"with the Ku Klux Klan."

AAPP: Now I wonder if Bill Clinton would say that if it were a "fleeting association"with the Nazi's? A bet you the Jewish community would be pissed if he said that about a U.S. Senator that recruited for the Nazi's.

I consider the Senator from West Virginia, akin to a soldier in the SS.  Blacks and other Americans should have treated him like Adolf Storms, who had been high on the list of suspected Nazi criminals. 

Instead of helping elect him to high office, American prosecutors should have investigated and prepared to bring him to trial for the violation of constitutional rights of blacks in West Virginia. The Federal government should have built a strong and significant case against him, not only for the hangings, executions and murders of black folks by the KKK in West Virginia when bird served as a recruiter for the KKK. 

There is no"fleeting association"with the Ku Klux Klan as Bill Clinton is trying to make it out to be. Why is there such a double standard?

AAPP says, So, He once had a fleeting association with the Ku Klux Klan... No Mr. bigoted former President of the United States, Bill Clinton. He (Bird) didnot have a fleeting association with the Ku Klux Klan, he was a recruiter for this hateful, violent group. Get your history straight! The facts are Byrd joined the KKK in 1942 and was elected leader of his local chapter. Byrd later claimed to have become "disinterested" after about a year. Byrd vigorously opposed the integration of the military, and wrote in 1946 that the KKK was "needed today as never before."

There's more... Check out the video on what President Obama says about the KKK Past of Byrd. Damn, the first black President excusing a KKK recruiter, who may have been responsible for many deaths and hangings of innocent black women, children and men in West Virginia? I guess America loves making excuses for former Klan members now.

Let's talk about these and other political issues tonight on the slugfest, "If you can handle the truth."

I guess Obama and others will name buildings, bridges and other Washington monuments for the former KKK recruiter. It won't be the first time... I was hoping it would be the last.
