San Francisco Police shoot & kill 19 yr old
Warning: the video is graphic.
Yesterday, at 4:45 p.m., SFPD shot a teenager who fled during a fair inspection on a Muni light rail car. The cops claimed that he was armed and had fired shots at them first. After the suspect was shot in the back, no gun was found. Doesn’t this sound awfully familiar?
Seriously though, you shot a 19 yr old over a $2 fair? And he later died in the hospital, all because he didn’t pay a $2 fair & you assumed he had a gun. Back up arrived before an ambulance did. No back up was needed. There were already other cops on the scene, some even carrying assault rifles. The man was on the ground fighting for his life. That moment in the video where he struggles to even attempt to get up is some of the most chilling video I’ve seen. Ever.
It’s okay though right? America will probably ignore this & move on to some more mindless crap, as is usually the case. I’ve seen it before with the Oscar grant case, Sean bell, James Brissette, and countless others. When will this country’s collective conscious wake up?
born underwater a virgin to the birth of creation
complacent verses bathing in lakes wasted her patience
ocean poems emotive prose the notions grow
breast strokes sowed in silly string civilized sovereignty
divinity’s reliance divided by Earth’s dire needs
fires breathe regardless of the rain she breeds
seeds beneath the sand hold no reason to lie in wake
so we speak in foreign tongues with dominance a mistake
to take her language for another world
visions died with imminence and grandiosity
a coliseum’s misconstruction catalyzed combustion’s coldest counterculture
living within the wind sinning stings it’s singularity
glaring stares impaired all sages of their clarity
careful conscious turned rotten swimming in the toxins
glossy water robs apostles of oxygen
filtered riddles fiddled this conviction’s symmetry
& now the god’s live in ignorance and misery
crimson skies abysmal cries they’re looking at the ground
astounded to the loud doubts that overpower clouds
powdered optometry devoured flowers of their solitude
another rotten petal for every sentiment left misunderstood
confused prisoners gifted with the write to think
proles sentenced to wonder why the caged bird sings
a paradox of broken thoughts to question it’s intentions
matter undermined the undefined enlightenment
spirals in the light comprise a present tense
evanescent destination sensei keep I humble
so many stripes up in my wavelengths
widowed endorphins scrape the pain away
balanced chemically an efficacy of electricity
many marvel but the master’s prophecy is destiny
I just try to live. Although I do have goals and wants and needs and desires, but I realize that they are the reason I experience displeasure. So I try. And I also realize that by trying not to desire, I am desiring not to desire. So I just live.

Isn’t a person just a collection of their mistakes, and also their, kind of, undoing of their mistakes? I mean, what else are you? You know, you’re always…you’re always just the reaction to the bad parts of yourself, I think. And I think that’s what is kind of like, a driving motivation behind any human being that’s…who wants to continue to grow and live life. ‘Cause they’re looking at their flaws and trying to, go beyond it. And I think that a person, you know, essentially dies when they think that they found themselves, ya know? Unless you want to admit that you, yourself, are not an individual, and are just part of a whole…movement of ideas, and thought, and culture, and humanity and, furthermore, the universe, and everything — unless you really feel like that, and you’re walking through walls, you know, you are always trying to find yourself. And it’s usually a person who believes that they’ve found “the answer” — found “the end” — that there actually is a psychological end. And then what’s the point of, you know, doing anything after that?

Some modified dialogues between my best friend and I
People don’t even know what to say when I get going about cultural change and the right to consciousness or martyrdom. They just look clueless like I’m speaking a foreign language. They can’t see past the paradigms. I know I’m in an institution that hoards prole-esque tendencies but it’s rough being alone with these ideas stuck in here. You’re the only outlet I can express these things freely to and our friendship means the world to me.
I tried to tell a few people it’s the duty of the young members of a species to mutate out of this system and evolve into newer loving forms. They look at me with this clueless dogmatic look as if their own futures are predetermined. God and the devil are human concepts and their infatuation within this paradox consumes a majority of the existential thought they consist of. Some are unconsciously formulated, some are coincidence. We need a renaissance of intellectualism, spirituality, and a revolution in the right to consciousness. We need to change the banking system. Stop the greed and consumerism that are cancerous to the Earth. We need space migration, intelligence and consciousness expansion, life extension, and the conservation of resources.
I think the biggest reason positive change ceases to exist is because people like you and I think our existence is futile, the exact polarity of martyrdom. If we keep the belief inherent that subjectively we are the reason this Earth breathes, limitation is non existent. Nothingness after death is nothing to fear, and if there is a transcendence of existence, I imagine we will have a good spot reserved for us. People forget we design our mind and being conscious of that nature gives you an ability far greater than what culture would lead you to believe.
Changes in the brain made the chains decay. Begging for paradise is so foolish, that’s the real pipe dream. Live free or die. Our species is so destructive, specifically the Eurocentric matrix. People worship idols and symbol who don’t have their best interests. They watch programs on television which control their minds by imprinting the sponsor’s view of reality. It’s like Terence said, most people live their whole lives with realities determined by institutions and cryptofacism. The traffic of cultural memes have corrupted and distorted the human condition. We are machines who have devalued nature and the mysteries of organic life we consume and pollute. Authority manipulates and engineers the masses to sleep in this cultural mirage. The change needed must be internal.
