Fantasia Has A Message For Anti-Police Brutality Protestors In N.C….

Posted On : September 23, 2016

Fantasia has just posted a few messages to all of those who stand with the anti-police protesters in her home state of North Carolina, where it has sadly looked like police/protester clashes in the segregated civil rights era as protestors continued yesterday, to stand up against police brutality well into the night hours on tear-gas smoke filled streets.

‘Tasia, however, has vowed to protest alongside her people when she returns to N.C. on Saturday, but she says there is a much bigger plan that needs to happen and she lines it all out in her Instagram post below…

The Charlotte, N.C. protests were sparked after Charlotte police killed 43 year old, Keith Lamont Scott, who according to family members was holding a book that police officers say was a gun. Keith’s death came the day after footage showing what really happened when Tulsa, OK police officer, Betty Shelby (who is Caucasian), shot and killed the unarmed, fully compliant, African American 40 year old, Terence Crutcher.

So far no charges have been brought against any Charlotte, N.C. officer involved in Keith’s murder because the investigation is still pending and people are outraged that┬áthe┬ápolice department refuses to release the dash cam footage of Keith’s shooting. It would be VERY wise for Charlotte police to NOT attempt to cover up anything, which was exactly what happened in the initial Tulsa reports on Terence Crutcher’s murder, BEFORE the actual dash cam footage was released days later.Screen Shot 2016-09-23 at 11.12.12 AM

As far as officer Betty Shelby, she was charged with first degree manslaughter, which typically warrants a much lesser sentence than a murder charge. It’s good that charges were brought against Shelby, but I must admit that I’m still confused as to why Terence Crutcher’s murder is not being charged as such against her. We’ll just have to sit back and see how that whole thing plays out I guess.

Our prayers and condolences continue to go out to the families of Terence Crutcher and Keith Lamont Scott. May they rest peacefully.
