I will not be taking down Joe Jones Manifesto.
Just remember that God is a forgiving God. In conclusion I say to people who knew none of this about me that one day I will have to reflect on when was the time to speak. When I see the potential for innocent lives to be lost…The time is Now!…JJ”
Indeed his family may want the manifesto swept under the rug. They may wish that their beloved had no tarnished memories from his life, but indeed he does. They may have huddled around him, saying to him; Don’t get involved. It is other people’s business. Keep your head down. Don’t make waves. We are so sorry this happened to you. Just forget about it, it will all be better. They my be saying those things and other well intended comforters that way too many families said during past social upheavals.
However, they are wrong in action. Sometimes it is difficult to make and stand by right choices.
Dorner’s LAPD firing case hinged on credibility. Joe Jones emotional online manifesto corroborates that LAPD has a culture of corruption. A culture of corruption so perverse that it leaves PTSD scars on souls.
It is time that the good men and women of LAPD claim their agency. It is time for the good men and woman of LAPD Occupy themselves. It is not a matter of taking back the LAPD from a culture of corruption, but over-taking the culture of corruption in LAPD. It is time for the good men and women of LAPD to form their own Occupations. To stand up, speak out, and expose the corrupt to broad daylight. Even if the corruption has touched you. The only way to clean it off of you is to expose it.
