10News - Witness to deadly shooting by Border Patrol agent disputes official account

10News - Witness to deadly shooting by Border Patrol agent disputes official account | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

Published on Nov 26, 2012

By Mitch Blacher and JW August
Aired: 11/21/2012

SAN DIEGO - A witness to the shooting by a Border Patrol agent that killed a mother of five said he saw the agent fire from the street, directly contradicting the official account. He also says when the shooting stopped, other agents harassed and detained him.

Prince Watson was reluctant to come forward, but he said his sense of civic responsibility compelled him to tell his story.

"I don't want to see this covered up," said Watson, a Marine and Iraq War veteran.

Carlos Batara's curator insight, January 14, 2013 11:23 PM

After a few decades of hate-filled imagery, such outcomes, sadly, are not surprising.

 

This anger, this sense of racial entitlement spills over into other areas of life.  Agents cannot simply turn off their sentiments when they leave the office. 

 

I'd tell you what I've seen in non-immigration court rooms, when agents are reduced to being "regular" members of the public, but I prefer not to add any more fuel to the fire.

 

Suffice it to say I have some real reasons for my views toward immigration law enforcement authorities.

The Shame of the Nation | Jonathan Kozol

"Since the early 1980s, when the federal courts began dismantling the landmark ruling in Brown v. Board of Education, segregation of black children has reverted to its highest level since 1968. In many inner-city schools, a stick-and-carrot method of behavioral control traditionally used in prisons is now used with students. Meanwhile, as high-stakes testing takes on pathological and punitive dimensions, liberal education has been increasingly replaced by culturally barren and robotic methods of instruction that would be rejected out of hand by schools that serve the mainstream of society."

"...it serves the agenda of conservatives to laud the supposed industriousness of Asian Americans in order to disparage the work ethics of those who, by race or class, suffer from higher rates of poverty. It suggests that our work ethics and not the cumulative impact of historical injustices and public policy are to blame for social and economic inequities."

What is The Racial Bechdel Test?

"The Racial Bechdel Test is to PoC presence in the media what The Bechdel Test is to female presence in the media. It tests whether or not a form of media has a strong PoC presence.

 

The test is important because it shows trends in how PoC’s are not only represented in media, but also how they are portrayed.

In order to pass the test, three requirements must be met:

 

1. There must be more than one character of color

2. At least two characters of color must have a conversation

3. The conversation has to be about something other than a white person

 

That’s it! Just three simple rules. Now let’s see what passes and what doesn’t."

Racism and Sexism Go Hand in Hand in Opposition to VAWA Reauthorization | CHANGELAB

Racism and Sexism Go Hand in Hand in Opposition to VAWA Reauthorization | CHANGELAB | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

...

Conservative attempts to exclude undocumented immigrants is similarly about bigotry. I recognize that the u-visa issue is a complicating factor, but there should be no question that detaining and deporting someone who exposed themselves to immigration authorities while reporting an incident of sexual assault is just plain cruel, not to mention terrible criminal justice policy. After all, the assailants in these cases broke the law. We are releasing them from accountability simply because of the immigration status of their victims. In other words, we are rewarding them for attacking women who are especially vulnerable.

 

I’m guessing most conservatives don’t want these guys who prey on the most vulnerable in the company of their minor daughters. It seems that some combination of racism and sexism (as in that they don’t believe that the women in their own lives could be victimized because they’re not like those women) is the clouding their reasoning. But maybe I’m being too generous. It’s possible they just don’t care.
...
And for this reason, Native women are far more likely to be victimized – 2.5 times more likely in fact. The murder rate of Native American women is also 10 times the national average."
