Alicia Herron called 911 after she saw Roberson behaving erratically after taking the pills to control his blood sugar. She says she thought paramedics were coming to the house, but the police arrived instead.
When the Waycross Police Department arrived, they say that Roberson behaved aggressively toward them and was “aggressively armed with two items used as weapons,” leading them to shoot at him. But Herron says that the officers didn’t say a word as they came in and shot the man.
“He didn’t say nothing, the police didn’t say nothing, anything, it was like a silent movie,” she said.
Meet the City Council of Waycross, Georgia. Aren’t you relieved, like I am, that this is simply incompetent police work and not racism?
The five Republicans on the Court know full well that by striking down the preclearance requirement before electoral changes can be made in states and districts with a documented history of racial discrimination, they are inviting a wave of legal impediments to minority voting. The same five justices also knew that in 2010 their Citizens United ruling would open the floodgates for mostly right-wing billionaires to inundate political campaigns with misleading propaganda.
