“This is the most asinine act I’ve ever seen a police officer make; totally unwarranted.” Agreed, totally! How in the world did this person ever make it onto any level of police force? After watching all of this day’s news clips, and reading the online information, I still am reeling behind what I find to be a tragedy that deserves further protest!
It was earlier this month when Mr. Samuel Dubose, 43, was driving on an afternoon, presumably around The University of Cincinnati. Dubose was NOT speeding, as clearly seen in the video, which is now visible, worldwide. Yet, for whatever reason, he was pulled over by University of Cincinnati police officers, and he was approached by Officer Ray Tensing.
Officer Tensing proceeded to question Dubose, asking him where he was heading, and for his license. When Dubose was unable to produce a license, Tensing asked additional questions, including whether or not Dubose had been drinking. Dubose responded no, yet the situation suddenly escalated, with Officer Tensing raising his voice, brandishing his weapon, and demanding that Samuel Dubose get out of the car!
It seemed that before Dubose could even exit his vehicle, he was bombarded with a barrage of bullets! Officer Tensing fired upon him multiple times for what appeared to be NO REASON, as Dubose produced NO WEAPON of his own, had not used any foul language, and had not even attempted to escape the scene! Samuel Dubose, before he knew what was happening, was gunned down, MURDERED, by OFFICER RAY TENSING, for reasons as yet to be produced!
All of this now is being taken to courts in Ohio, the Cincinnati area. C.N.N., and all of the major news networks will be covering this story to follow through with what happens to Officer Tensing, as well as with the family of Samuel Dubose. Yet, this is only another underscoring of where racial relations really rest within our “great” nation. Indeed, no one is denying that leaps and bounds have been made over the last two centuries, yet mindsets still refuse to erase some of the seemingly savory, yet altogether stagnant ways of the past!

Alright, alright, alright (shout-out to Matthew…)! It has been A WHILE since I have actually sat my fuzzy behind down and blogged! Yet, after tonight’s events, I could not stay away any longer. Writing and blogging is what I love to do, after all, so I need to get back into the swing of things. Besides, with the winds blowing from this shit that has occurred just recently, I can NOT just let it ride without saying something somewhere to someone! DAMN IT!!!
I am sure that anyone with any level of cognizance has heard the news events of today. Specifically, I am referring to what went down in Africa; Zimbabwe. One of these assholes who feels that it is a fun and entertaining thing to hunt animals for sport went into The Hwange National Park of Zimbabwe, armed with a rifle, and targeting wild animals. This man (term used loosely…) named Walter James Palmer, a resident of Eden Prairie, Minnesota, entered the supposed sanctuary on the evening of July 6 with intentions to slaughter the wondrous wildcat.
Palmer was accompanied by Johnny Rodrigues, the head of The Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force (of all things…). It was at night, and they were using a spotlight to locate the lions. When Cecil was seen, the men tied a dead animal to their vehicle, using it’s scent to lure Cecil toward them. They drove out of the park, with Cecil in pursuit, and Palmer initially shot the lion with an arrow! This did not kill the cat, and he was able to escape.
However, Palmer and Rodrigues tracked Cecil down, locating him roughly forty hours later. That is when they murdered the lion with a shotgun! Moments later, the men saw that Cecil had been suited with a GPS tracking collar, and they attempted to destroy it, in an attempt to keep their cover!
Adding to the horror, these men (if you choose to call them such…) beheaded and skinned Cecil! The lion’s head has yet to be located. As is the way of nature, the cub’s of Cecil’s now will fall under the will of the next lead lion, which is called Jericho. This lion likely will kill Cecil’s cubs, as is the way of nature, to ensure the future of his own bloodline!
