Our Truth, Our Time
A few years ago the NYPD spokesperson Paul Browne lied and said I was the cause of police violence that ended the Sylvia Rivera Law Project five year anniversary celebration. It wasn’t true on any level but it was yet another chance to watch how the NYPD lies to cover its own violence.
A few nights ago he lied again and said that Kimani Gray was the cause of his own death by the hands of the NYPD. That’s not true on any level and our communities are calling it out.
He’s the go to guy for NYPD lies about ourselves in order to sell the control of our lives and the delivery of our deaths. And we don’t believe him.
We don’t believe in what the NYPD says about themselves so why would we believe in what it says it will do for us? Or about who we are? Or about why Kimani Gray was shot in the back many times over.
We’ve stopped believing in authority & resumed believing in each other.
We are the message!
