Last night when CPD rushed us for the last time. They literally had us surrounded in the parking lot. The BLACK women who were on the front was attacked first. These aren't organizers or activists. These were BLACK grandmothers, & aunts
That I see everyday on the 15 or J14 with shopping carts. These were actual community members. As we ran i saw police aiming for certain folks. I've spent alot of time in South Shore. Snoop is a man I've seen. People may talk shit about 71st but its home to see many
Police shutdown the 24hr Walgreens. But everything else was open. This same area actually the same street several BLACK men/boys have lost their lives to CPD in since 2013. South Shore is tired.
Since 2013 when the Obama Library was just a rumor. Rahm ramped up police presence in South Shore especially on 71st &Jeffrey. What happened last night was going to eventually. Just didn't except it to happen this way.
This is a place where BLACK bodies are being displaced. This is where they torn down the original South Shore high school that my father went too. To build another one where most of the students in South Shore don't attend. Looks at Englewood community.
On 71st and Jeffrey in the shopping center there use to a Dominicks years ago before they packed up and left in 2005. Since the a property was laid vacant to a community with the closest grocery store on 75th & Stony.
Last night a community was violently assaulted by CPD. But everyday since 2013 they have been under siege. Just last night reporters caught it on camera. And reporters caught batons to the chest. Well i guess its better then a bullet. Long Live Harith Augutus aka Snoop.
