“I have watched this week’s unfolding events, angry and appalled,” Mattis writes. “The words ‘Equal Justice Under Law’ are carved in the pediment of the United States Supreme Court. This is precisely what protesters are rightly demanding. It is a wholesome and unifying demand—one that all of us should be able to get behind. We must not be distracted by a small number of lawbreakers. The protests are defined by tens of thousands of people of conscience who are insisting that we live up to our values—our values as people and our values as a nation.” He goes on, “We must reject and hold accountable those in office who would make a mockery of our Constitution.”

"As long as I live, I will never forget that in no other

country on earth is my story even possible…

But it is a story that has seared into my

genetic makeup the idea that

this nation is more than the sum of

its parts—that out of many, we are truly one."

Statement by Former

U.S. President George W. Bush

“. . . We can only see the reality of America's need by seeing it through the eyes of the threatened, oppressed, and disenfranchised. ”

"Laura and I are anguished by the brutal suffocation of George Floyd and disturbed by the injustice and fear that suffocate our country. Yet we have resisted the urge to speak out, because this is not the time for us to lecture. It is time for us to listen. It is time for America to examine our tragic failures – and as we do, we will also see some of our redeeming strengths.

It remains a shocking failure that many African Americans, especially young African American men, are harassed and threatened in their own country. It is a strength when protesters, protected by responsible law enforcement, march for a better future. This tragedy — in a long series of similar tragedies — raises a long overdue question: How do we end systemic racism in our society? The only way to see ourselves in a true light is to listen to the voices of so many who are hurting and grieving. Those who set out to silence those voices do not understand the meaning of America — or how it becomes a better place.  

America’s greatest challenge has long been to unite people of very different backgrounds into a single nation of justice and opportunity. The doctrine and habits of racial superiority, which once nearly split our country, still threaten our Union. The answers to American problems are found by living up to American ideals — to the fundamental truth that all human beings are created equal and endowed by God with certain rights. We have often underestimated how radical that quest really is, and how our cherished principles challenge systems of intended or assumed injustice. The heroes of America — from Frederick Douglass, to Harriet Tubman, to Abraham Lincoln, to Martin Luther King, Jr. — are heroes of unity. Their calling has never been for the fainthearted. They often revealed the nation’s disturbing bigotry and exploitation — stains on our character sometimes difficult for the American majority to examine. We can only see the reality of America's need by seeing it through the eyes of the threatened, oppressed, and disenfranchised. 

That is exactly where we now stand. Many doubt the justice of our country, and with good reason. Black people see the repeated violation of their rights without an urgent and adequate response from American institutions. We know that lasting justice will only come by peaceful means. Looting is not liberation, and destruction is not progress. But we also know that lasting peace in our communities requires truly equal justice. The rule of law ultimately depends on the fairness and legitimacy of the legal system. And achieving justice for all is the duty of all. 

This will require a consistent, courageous, and creative effort. We serve our neighbors best when we try to understand their experience. We love our neighbors as ourselves when we treat them as equals, in both protection and compassion. There is a better way — the way of empathy, and shared commitment, and bold action, and a peace rooted in justice. I am confident that together, Americans will choose the better way."

Statement by Former

U.S. President Bill Clinton:

"No one deserves to die the way

George Floyd did."

"In the days since George Floyd’s death, it is impossible not to feel grief for his family—and anger, revulsion, and frustration that his death is the latest in a long line of tragedy and injustice, and a painful reminder that a person’s race still determines how they will be treated in nearly every aspect of American life.

No one deserves to die the way George Floyd did.  And the truth is, if you’re white in America, the chances are you won’t.  That truth is what underlies the pain and the anger that so many are feeling and expressing—that the path of an entire life can be measured and devalued by the color of one’s skin.  Fifty-seven years ago, Dr. King dreamed of a day when his “four little children would be judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”  Today, that dream seems even more out of reach, and we’ll never reach it if we keep treating people of color with the unspoken assumption that they’re less human.

We need to see each other as equally deserving of life, liberty, respect, dignity, and the presumption of innocence.  We need to ask ourselves and each other hard questions, and listen carefully to the answers."

Statement by Former

U.S. President Jimmy Carter:

“. . . We are better than this!”

"Rosalynn and I are pained by the tragic racial injustices and consequent backlash across our nation in recent weeks. Our hearts are with the victims’ families and all who feel hopeless in the face of pervasive racial discrimination and outright cruelty. We all must shine a spotlight on the immorality of racial discrimination. But violence, whether spontaneous or consciously incited, is not a solution.

As a white male of the South, I know all too well the impact of segregation and injustice to African Americans. As a politician, I felt a responsibility to bring equity to my state and our country. In my 1971 inaugural address as Georgia’s governor, I said: “The time for racial discrimination is over.” With great sorrow and disappointment, I repeat those words today, nearly five decades later. Dehumanizing people debases us all; humanity is beautifully and almost infinitely diverse. The bonds of our common humanity must overcome the divisiveness of our fears and prejudices.

Since leaving the White House in 1981, Rosalynn and I have strived to advance human rights in countries around the world. In this quest, we have seen that silence can be as deadly as violence. People of power, privilege, and moral conscience must stand up and say “no more” to a racially discriminatory police and justice system, immoral economic disparities between whites and blacks, and government actions that undermine our unified democracy. We are responsible for creating a world of peace and equality for ourselves and future generations.

We need a government as good as its people, and we are better than this."

Are "We the People" immovably

resolved in the demanding of

"LAW & JUSTICE"

for the whole of

"The U.S. Citizenry" . . .

. . . regardless of skin color:

black, white, brown, red

and every color in between

that "Human Beings" have an

"inalienable right" to live in

with equal, lawful police protection?!

Thousands of protesters gather at the Minnesota State Capitol on Sunday to demand justice for George Floyd as the Minnesota National Guard secured the perimeter of the capitol building on Sunday, May 31, 2020 in Minneapolis , Minnesota.

Answer:

Yes!

 Deepest Condolences

Although George Floyd is Gone

 He Will Always With Us [U.S.]!

Words cannot fully express the depth

of sorrow being Extended to the

Family of Mr. George Floyd

for the lawless, horrific, vile & shameful killing executed upon his

life: an innocent "Human Being,"

killed before the eyes of America

and the Whole World.

Condemnation and justice must be

brought to the "fullest" against

the hands [and knee] of the 

"policing entity" charged 

and sworn to protect.

 

Instead of lawfully protecting and

serving the community, Mr. Floyd 

 was hand-cuffed, facing down on 

the ground pleading for his life!

 

Not one of the four stopped the

killing:  they were all 

equally willing while pressing on

Mr. Floyd's back and bouncing on

his neck with a display of pompous

carelessness as though saying,

"Why not - What the heck?!"

 

The blatant boldness of 

"lawless policing" which yet exist

throughout America from . . .

"Sea-to-Shining-Sea"

must be extricated

from the "True Citizenry" &

The Whole Family of Humanity!

- EPACHA Foundation - 

Reminder . . .

The very essence of "Law" is

"Eternally" woven in the

life of . . .

"True Police Officers."

 

That same "Law" is also

woven in the uniform you wear. 

To dishonor the uniform

is to dishonor the Law.

ACTION for the . . .

sustainable longevity of

lawful, responsible & accountable

policing must be taken

NOW!

Reminder:

Not even "The Law" is above "The Law!"

Statement by the Fraternal Order of Police,

the Nation's Largest Police Union

President, Patrick Yoes 

“I do not believe this incident should be allowed to define our profession or the Minneapolis Police Department, but there is no doubt that this incident has diminished the trust and respect our communities have for the men and women of law enforcement, . . . Based on the by-stander’s video from this incident, we witnessed a man in distress pleading for help, . . . The fact that he was a suspect in custody is immaterial—police officers should at all times render aid to those who need it.  Police officers need to treat all of our citizens with respect and understanding and should be held to the very highest standards for their conduct.”

"Just Laws & Justice" 

Must be at the Helm Leading the Way!

 A time for change:  A turning point for America.

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democratic members of Congress knelt in silence

for eight minutes and 46 seconds on the marble floor of  Emancipation Hall in the U.S. Capitol on Monday, the duration that Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin

knelt on the neck of George Floyd as he died.

Elected government must now rise from

the knee to lawfully and boldly build 

upon the foundation of . . .

"JUST LAWS & JUSTICE"

for the whole Citizenry - without racist bias or discrimination - to effectively ensure the protection of every inalienable

"Human Right"

including the right to

"equal protection of law & justice!" 

 NOW is that time!

  NEVER FORGET.

 NEVER AGAIN.
