Just 48 hours before a civil lawsuit against the city of Ferguson was filled by Michael Brown’s parents for the murder of their unarmed son by a cop, the Chicago Police detective who fatally shot unarmed 22-year-old Rekia Boyd in 2012 was found not guilty on all charges Monday.

Black women fought for women’s rights against being slave property of their husbands in the 1800s & the Women’s suffrage movement abandoned them.
Black queens like Ida B. Wells & Rosa Parks strategically planned powerful peaceful protests against segregation & the Civil Rights movement credits Black male speakers for the foundational work the sistas laid down.
Our sistas breathed life into the Black Lives Matter movement & how do we show our appreciation? We ignore the life of #RekiBoyd We refuse to march for her. We remain silent while her killer goes free. Being a Black Woman is the beautiful, hardest to be, because you fight daily to defend your melanin & your femininity. We need to support our sistas. Stop trying to define our sistas. Don’t decline our sistas’ worth in your mind. She is one of a kind. Honor her. Spport her. Ride for her like she rides for you. All human life was birth from the womb of a Black woman. She is earth’s royalty & the spiritual portal & liaison of light to the universe.
Judge Dennis Porter handed down the verdict in queen Rekia Byrd’s case Monday afternoon amid heavy security in his courtroom, but not before asking anyone who might become emotional to leave. “I know this case has generated a lot of emotion … but this is a court of law, not a court of emotion,” Porter said before issuing a long ruling.
Porter said while he had no doubt that Officer Dante Servin did indeed shoot Boyd, he said prosecutors didn’t prove Servin acted recklessly when he did so, a requirement for finding someone guilty of #manslaughter.
After the verdict was read screaming members of Boyd’s family were dragged from the courtroom as Servin hugged relatives. “You want me to be quiet?! This muthafucka killed my
sister!” Boyd’s brother, Martinez Sutton, screamed as he was dragged out of the courtroom by deputies.
Outside the courthouse, protesters began to gather and Boyd’s mother, Angela Helton, sobbed with family.
I pray for justice for Rekia’s family.
Jan. 9th 2015 my 20y/o nephew & 20y/o cousin were murdered execution style in a parked car with 2 other black men in San Francisco, CA.
The SF police refuse to continue the investigation, despite bragging through private texts they know who killed them. The SF police department has come under scrutiny after cops’ private texts were leaked of them saying, “all Niggers deserve to hang” claiming their murders don’t deserve to be solved.
I’m disgusted & fighting for justice, I pray for justice for my grieving sister losing her son & for any mother or father who has to bury their child. Prayerfully this #LorettaLynch confirmation leads to a change of heart in eugenicists in powerful positions, starting with the civil suit against the Ferguson police department.
