The black panthers had an incredible ability to take Gangsta’s off the street and turn them into revolutionaries. We don’t have that today. Many of the “conscious” movements today tend to shun the dudes in the streets. It’s rare you find a movement today that understands the role and how vital the Gangsta’s on the block are if we ever truly want to overcome our situation. To many conscious movements caught up with the small things like the usage of the N-word or pants saggin to realize the large picture.

Back in 2013, Texas resident Larry Davis ran either a red light or stop sign (reports vary) in his Buick in the city of Austin. Despite his insistence that he had had only one drink, he was put in handcuffs and arrested for driving while intoxicated. Then, when he was given a Breathalyzer test by the Austin Police Department, he blew a 0.00. Nonetheless, as KVUE reports, Mr. Davis spent the night in jail.
While at the station, Mr. Davis agreed to give a blood sample as well, to prove he was not under the influence of any drugs or alcohol. The results would later come back 100% negative. Davis’ attorney, Daniel Betts, told KVUE, “My reaction was just shock that this happened.”
The Austin Police Department stands by the arrest, saying they believed Davis showed signs of impairment, that while standing on one leg, he “swayed,” and “needed his arms for balance.” They also suggested that he could have been on marijuana, a drug that wouldn’t necessarily show up in a test. The APD said they’re going by a “take-no-chances” policy. That being said, they did acknowledge how unusual it is that Davis was arrested despite registering a zero on his breath test.
they ain’t even trying to hide they shit anymore
What the fuck is wrong with our prison system in the US!?!?!
