FINAL THOUGHTS ON "UNAPOLOGETIC"

September 1, 2021
TO ALL THE PEOPLE WHO PLAN ON SEEING "UNAPOLOGETIC" BEFORE IT LEAVES THE CINEMA VILLAGE: WE MUST CERTAINLY REMEMBER THE TRAGIC, UNINTENTIONAL DEATH OF REKIA BOYD, BUT WE MUST ALSO REMEMBER THAT THIS YEAR MARKS THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ASSASSINATION OF A HEROIC STATE TROOPER NAMED WERNER FOERSTER , WHO WAS MURDERED BY TWO LOW CLASS TRASHY TERRORISTS NAMED JOANNE CHESIMARD AND CLARK SQUIRE. CHESIMARD WAS BROKEN OUT OF PRISON IN 1984, AND WAS GIVEN SANCTUARY BY THE MURDEROUS DICTATOR, FIDEL CASTRO. ALTHOUGH SQUIRE IS STILL IN JAIL, THERE HAS BEEN A CAMPAIGN RECENTLY TO RELEASE HIM BECAUSE HE IS 84 YEARS OLD. FOR SOME REASON,, IT HASN'T OCCURRED TO HIS SUPPORTERS THAT SQUIRE & CHESIMARD DIDN'T LET TROOPER FOERSTER LIVE TO SEE 84.

TIMELY- BUT ONE-SIDED- DEPICTION OF BLACK PEOPLE BY POLICE OFFICERS

August 29, 2021
IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR THE FILM-MAKERS TO MAKE PEOPLE AWARE OF THE TRAGIC DEATH OF REKIA BOYD, BUT THEY NEGLECTED TO MENTION THAT THE PO WHO RESPONDED TO THE 911 CALL OF A NOISE COMPLAINT, DANTE SEVERIN, SAID THAT HE FIRED HIS GUN BECAUSE HE THOUGHT THAT ONE OF MS. BOYD'S FRIENDS, ANTONIO CROSS, DISPLAYED A GUN. UNFORTUNATELY, THE "GUN" TURNED OUT TO BE A CELLPHONE, AND THIS RUSH TO JUDGEMENT BY PO SEVERIN THAT CAUSED THE TRAGIC DEATH OF MS. BOYD WAS SADLY REMINISCENT OF THE RUSH TO JUDGEMENTS THAT CAUSED THE EQUALLY TRAGIC DEATHS OF AKAI GURLEY, AMADOU DIALLO, SEAN BELL, BREONNA TAYLOR, & TAMIR RICE. HOWEVER,, WHAT I FOUND DISTURBING WAS THAT NOONE INVOLVED WITH THIS FILM SEEMED CONCERNED ABOUT ALL THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN POLICE OFFICERS WHO HAVE BEEN INTENTIONALLY MURDERED OVER THE YEARS. DON'T WE ALL NEED TO REMEMBER GREGORY FOSTER, WAVERLY JONES, WAVERLY BROWN, PETER PAIGE, ANTHONY MACLEAN, JAMES NEMORIN, & RODNEY ANDREWS? I SHOULD ADD THAT A LATINX POLICE OFFICER NAMED DANIEL ENCHANTEGUI WAS MURDERED BY A WHITE MAN NAMED STEVEN ARMENTO IN 2005. I WANT TO HOPE THAT ARMENTO WILL ROT IN JAIL FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE, BUT I DOUBT THAT HE WILL. ONE OF THE ASSASSINS OF OFFICER JONES, ANTHONY BOTTOM , WAS LET OUT OF JAIL LAST YEAR, AND ONE OF HIS OTHER ASASSINS, HERMAN BELL, HAD ALREADY BEEN LET OUT OF JAIL. ALSO, ONE OF THE ASSASSINS OF OFFICERS BROWN AND PAIGE, DAVID GILBERT, IS ABOUT TO BE LET OUT OF JAIL, AND TWO OF THEIR OTHER ASSASSINS, KATHY BOUDIN AND JUDITH CLARK, HAVE ALREADY BEEN LET OUT OF JAIL. BOUDIN WAS EVEN HIRED BY COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY, WHICH IS JUST AS SICK AS COLUMBIA GIVING A JOB TO WHITE SUPREMACIST ASSASSINS LIKE JAMES EARL RAY & BYRON DE LA BECKWITH. THE MURDERS OF ALL OF THESE OFFICERS SHOULD REMIND ALL OF US THAT BLUE LIVES MATTER JUST AS MUCH AS BLACK AND BROWN LIVES.
