EYELINER ON POINT, LIFE ON POINT

Do I contradict myself? Very well, then, I contradict myself; I am large. I contain multitudes. --Walt Whitman

I'm not gonna do an "About Me" because my blog pretty much speaks for me, but if you search my "about me" tag you'll get a few tidbits. ;)  What else?  Well, you can call me Turquoise if you feel the need to call me something. :)

This is not a fashion blog. This is not a Scandal blog. This is not a black beauty or an ethnic beauty blog. This is not a travel blog. This is not a Kerry Washington or Beyonce stan blog. This is a whatever-I-feel-like-posting-vision board.

I don't do this for likes or reblogs, but if you can see the beauty in all things and love to laugh like me, you'll enjoy what I post.

If you read, or are currently reading this news headline today and thinking, “Great!! I’m glad justice is served”, you have the wrong idea of what justice is. It’s time to re-think the way we see justice delivered to victims of oppression and abuse.  For the humiliation, pain, psychological and physical violence Marlene Pinnock endured, this settlement was rightfully owed to her. But this is what I call, “partial justice”.The provision in the $1.5 million settlement states that the officer will resign. This is where justice is lacking. He is not being terminated, he is choosing to resign. For justice to work, the officer involved should be terminated, and must be arrested and charged for the violent crime of assault. There has to be accountability within the CHP. CHP is responsible for sending a clear message to Marlene Pinnock and Californians throughout the state, that they will not tolerate police brutality and will bring charges on any and all officers who fail to comply, just as they would do to civilians.  There is a pattern that has been developing for years across the nation, police commit acts of extreme violence on civilians (including sexual assault and murder), and walk away without incident. A new precedent must be set, one that says law enforcement is not above the law. This is just the beginning, we have yet to scratch the surface of ‘justice’ with this story.
