kevinjstuckey It's also interesting that this photo is of them free falling because love is a lot like that. You just have to jump, hope for the best and something could always go wrong on the way down but more often than not you land safely. 23h

kevinjstuckey A Friendsgiving to remember! Thankful for the call in my heart that led me and my best friend from NYC to Los Angeles (who is now my angel), for the friends that supported the transition from the east coast, and the new friends 3 years later who have turned into family. God is truly amazing! 4w

kevinjstuckey This photo just broke my heart. Two boys unarmed...but you can claim self defense when you see my skin as a weapon. 300 years of slavery - Of course you still see the chains on me when we've been in chains longer than we've been free. A mere 50 years ago we got the right to be civilized and less than that the right to vote for the fate of our own lives. 250 more to go so be strong my friends for yet we will rise. #ferguson #selma #justiceforeveryone #mikebrown #equality 1mon
  •   anthaface Yet... I've been attacked, stabbed and fought by people of all color - black included. I didn't see skin color. I saw my life flash before my eyes.. And that's what people don't understand about being a police officer. There are more of us (black people) killing each other daily than there are ever police officer killing anyone of any color. That's a fact. We can't convict someone just because we want him to pay for years of slavery. If he did the right thing under the law, then and the evidence supports that, let's accept that. I could be that officer tomorrow or today - and the first thing they (the public) will say is that I'm racist (impossible because I'm black) and that I'm a horrible person (also untrue). I just wish more people understood what's at stake everyday we step out in the world we protect you from - only to lose everything because of doing what we had to do to get back home to our loved ones alive. No police officer wants to kill anyone. Period. That's just not the reality. 1mon
  •   nydiasimone @anthaface however mike brown and trayvon Martin weren't threats. We trust police officers to protect us but they have proven time and time again they would rather kill the black citizens than protect them. Yes black people commit crimes against other black people, just like white people commit crimes against other white people. But they're criminals. Police officers should be held to a higher standard. 1mon
  •   kevinjstuckey I respect and appreciate your perspective. And I value your service. @anthaface I'm not going to assume that you think I'm attacking police officers since I made no mention of them but rather the value of a life. Particularly two young black men's lives. I can't speak for these incidents in terms of whether they were defending themselves to get home to their families (Trayvon was killed by someone who wasn't even a police officer). I just think there's a fine line between a need to defend yourself and killing someone who is unarmed in the process. Sure the line gets blurred when you're in the streets and on the defense but it doesn't mean we can't ask the question and it doesn't give anyone a blanket right to use a weapon at will. I don't think this is a fight against the men in uniform but rather an evaluation of a few of the men in them. With love - xo 1mon
  •   anthaface @kevinjstuckey I respectfully agree with you in that regard. The value of Life is so important. Unfortunately, because most people aren't in the streets everyday (defending the public) it's hard to understand why police officers are faced with those split second life or death situations. Yet, if it was YOU or your loved one being attacked in an alley, you would want us (the police) to come help and do whatever is necessary to stop the attack and preserve your life. That's not an easy decision to make for anyone. Yet, I am forced to make those decisions 15 times a day - and at the risk of losing everything I have and care for (including my freedom, my career, my home, and my life). You don't go to work everyday with that type of burden to bear. You will likely never lose your freedom or your life, or be sued by just doing your job. Welcome to my world. It's not easy. But I agree, there is a fracture in the trust of the system, and the public's trust of officer. Travon Martin is definitely a travesty and in my opinion, completely different situation than Mike Brown. Travon's murder was not justly handled. 1mon
  •   kevinjstuckey Totally agree with the challenges of your job to protect and serve. It's just bigger than the both of us. I think like you said this is more about a system that has failed us and devalued black life for years. That's the passion you see when you get to the heart of the issue. This is not about people hating police officers (that's just the easiest target in this case) this is about a people that feel like their lives don't matter and have never mattered to our country and to a system that is supposed to protect us. It's much bigger than this healthy discourse on Instagram. @anthaface 1mon
  •   anthaface Absolutely!!! @kevinjstuckey 1mon
  •   anthaface @nydiasimone Travon Martin wasn't a threat. But Mike Brown certainly was. He attacked the police officer. He attempted to grab his weapon. Prior to this contact with the officer, he just strong armed (which means by force / no weapon) a convenience store. Mike was 230 pounds plus, over 6 feet tall. Of course he's a threat!!! Who attacks a police officer in uniform?? Not you maybe. Not I. Not anyone who is doing the right thing. That's the evidence that the Grand Jury reviewed. That's why they made their decision based on fact and evidence. Not rumor, conjecture or speculation. 1mon

  •   mstiab Amazing young man! My heart bleeds as I watch this and the hurt he feels I am still so saddened about this entire situation. Thank you for sharing this! 1mon
  •   kevinjstuckey @mstiab so well said and so true. The sacrifice and discipline to give so deeply of himself for something greater than himself is just an overwhelming emotion. That emotion says I gave all I had and the rest I relied on grace. 1mon
  •   mstiab Yes! That's exactly what this says to me. His sacrifice will not go unnoticed. God will prevail! 1mon
