4 Years Later After the Botched Raid, Which Lead to Aiyana Stanley Jones’s Death

People who think this is not about race are really naive and possibly stupid. Especially if one knows the history of the police and the African American/Black community. This should never have happened and this officer’s case should not have been dropped. The prosecutors don’t give a damn about Black lives; be it Michael Brown, Eric Garner or a 7 year old little girl.

Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) has pledged to introduce legislation on police accountability following the dismissal of charges against a Detroit police officer who fatally shot a 7-year-old girl.

On Friday, the case was dropped against Officer Joseph Weekley in the 2010 death of Aiyana Stanley-Jones, who was killed during a botched police raid while she was sleeping in the couch. Conyers released a statement Saturday saying the decision was unlikely to end the controversy over the incident.

“However, our community must not lose sight of the greatest tragedy of all in this situation — the loss of a 7-year-old innocent child, Aiyana Stanley-Jones,” the congressman said. “I extend my deepest condolences to the family of Aiyana Stanley-Jones during this very difficult time.”

The man who murdered Aiyana Stanely Jones:

Enough

Enough

Innocence running along side the streams of blissfulness, shattered by bullets of ignorance.Caught between a slim grip of living or dying in a hospital bed.
In today’s world, innocence is ran over with deception and disregard for life.
Kids cannot enter playgrounds without a death sentence.

Enough

Why protect the taker of life?

Out of fear you let innocence slip through your hands to settle beneath the ground.
Out of fear you let gang bangers do their deed with no repercussion. Out of fear a five year old little girl is in the hospital from a bullet that pierced her spine. Out of fear she might not be able to use her legs and arms again.

Guard the ones that need us, not the ones that hinder the innocence born into the world.
