Even though I have very little faith left in the system, I really hope there will be some semblance of justice come out of this for horrible atrocity.Â This young man died because he wants to see a movie a second time and became a bit argumentative.Â The cops, or in this case I call them pigs, murdered this young man over the price of a fucking movie ticket.Â If that isn’t an atrocity, I don’t know what the hell is.
Unfortunately, as this story says, none of the three cops responsible for the death of Robert Ethan Saylor are going to be disciplined, or held responsible in any way.Â None of them is even going to get a slap on the wrist, like a suspension or official reprimand would be.Â Unless this young man’s family files, and wins, a very large wrongful death suit against Frederick County, not much of anything will come of this murder by cops.Â It will just be swept under the rug and eventually fade away, just like most other cases of gross police misconduct.Â The only people who will remember Robert Ethan Saylor will be his poor mother, his loved ones, and those of us in the disability activist community who have pledged ourselves to defending our brothers and sisters.
In fact, the Frederick County, Maryland Sheriff’s office hasn’t even offered an apology in this matter.Â Nor have the three police officers even acknowledged that they did anything wrong, let alone apologize for their obvious insensitive criminal behavior.Â They must be three really cold-blooded bastards not to even acknowledge that they did something horrible, even if by accident.
This is just the latest addition to a long list of recent atrocities committed by police officers, in the United States.Â It has gotten to the point that in many places, people are becoming more afraid of the police than they are criminals.Â It seems these days that police officers in this country are becoming more like out-of-control robots than a real human beings.
This type of thing just has to stop!
