The revolution will be televised on your flat screen TVs, on your smart phones, on the nightly news. Pay close attention to the blood left behind at the hands of those sworn to keep you safe. We cannot be held liable if we fail to protect you. Be prepared to surrender your inalienable rights. We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal except if you are Sean Bell, Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, Rekia Boyd, Eric Garner, Amadou Diallo, Rodney King, Tanisha Anderson, Mike Brown, Ezell Ford, Akai Gurley, Eric Harris, Walter Scott, Freddie Gray, John Crawford, Jordan Baker, Sharisse Francis, Terrence Crutcher, Keith Lamont Harris and the list goes on, and on, and on, and on, and on. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness can only be found in books our youth cannot access. It is not our fault that you cannot read. War is expensive, education, the price. Single mothers start saving up bail money. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you. We are not responsible for what happens to you behind interrogation walls, or on public streets, or on your front stoop, or inside your car, or while walking home alone on a dark night. Please sit quietly as we coerce you into a false confession. You are guilty until proven innocent. If we mistakenly execute you, please accept our sincerest apologies. We reserve the right to shoot first. In the event of an error our officers will be put on compensated leave pending a "full investigation". If you feel you've been treated unfairly, you can request a hearing. But understand that it is not our duty to listen to you. Proceed to the end of the line you will be seen in the order that we decide.
