Let's discuss this. Put it to rest because this needs to get off our chest. That our mouths, we are muskets. Words, they are bullets, not to be fussed with. This is how we shoot back. With this assembly, we aspire to provoke not riot, but conversation. This congregation has come together to express its descent of police matters. So, in exercising our right to be heard, the only proper police protocol is to use excessive force, forceful words. Because some of your actions have suggested that talking is out of the question. And that causes me to question, "How can you question your suspects once they lay dead at your hands. How? How do you release preemptive news bulletins once you've unwarrantedly released one or two bullets in a young man's chest?" It's suspect, how quickly your suspects turn to victims.

Routine arrests are looking more and more like modern day lynchings, and I understand that it's a slippery slope. It's your job to bear arms, but not to wrap your bare arms around throats like rope, like boa constrictors. I can't breath being screamed in a whisper. So, for those of you who wear the blue, let's get this clear. Let's get this clear. I fear that until the injustice stops, red, white, and blue will go down in history represented by the blood unjustly stained on the uniforms of cops. We've got to stop with the speech blocks.

Let's discuss this. Put it to rest because it needs to get off our chests. Mouths be our muskets. Words, the bullets, not to be fussed with. This is how we shoot back. This is how we shoot back. This is how we shoot back. This is how we shoot back.

Put your hands behind your back.

I can't breathe. I can't breathe. I can't breathe. I can't breathe. I can't breathe. I can't breathe.
