Cocksuckers on Patrol: Police Harassment at Kent State

January 25, 2007 at 3:54 pm (Kent State, Police Brutality, Politics, Racism)

Last week, the Kent Stater reported on the story of Rick Rucker, a 26 year old KSU alumni who was harassed by police and was arrested along with 4 others. Rucker filed a formal complaint against the KPD. Last week, Black United Students held a meeting in which Rucker presented his side of events. One of the key points the BUS hammered home was that police brutality was not restricted to just one race. It in fact affects everyone. Just as k the [white and asian]people who were hit with rubber bullets and tear gas during 2001’s Townhomes near riots.

Of course, this is bound to attract all the racists and police apologists who think this sort of action is justified.  The Stater ran an article about the various comments being posted on the article.  Most of them run along the lines of either “He was a nigger, therefore he deserved it” and “police do nothing wrong!  If he was arrested, he had it comming to him!”.  More importantly though, becuase of BUS’s involvement in the affair “Oh no!  It’s another race issue!”.  THis could be further from the truth.  As was stated at teh meeting, there were several types of people who were approached by the police.  It gets confused as a racial affair becuase of the ethnicity of the victim as well as the involvement of BUS.  In reality, though, BUS is involved simply becuase tehy were the first to call the meeting and show concern over what happened, and they tend to be more vocal about these issues.  If say, some fraternity group, or even the college Republicans had called this meeting, then it wouldn’t be a race issue.  Politics, but not race.

The point here is that weather you are black, white, asian, hispanic, or whatever else, police brutality is something that affects us all.  You might think it’s okay becuase you’re a good little white christian conservative who dosen’t party or attend anti-war protests, but it can and will happen to you if you get caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.  Just remember, when they come for you, there will be on one left to speak up for you.
