The New Co-​Intel Pro

Or from the old Mis­sis­sippi to the new Mississippi

Accord­ing to a leaked FBI assess­ment, “Black Iden­tity Extrem­ists” Paste are a new group of domes­tic ter­ror­ists who pose a seri­ous and vio­lent threat to Amer­i­can law enforce­ment. The assess­ment is based on unsub­stan­ti­ated group­ing of unre­lated police shoot­ings and has drawn much pub­lic scrutiny for its appar­ent advo­cacy of racial pro­fil­ing. Rakem Balo­gun, an out­spo­ken black activist in Dal­las, is con­sid­ered the first per­son to be tar­geted as a “Black Iden­tity Extrem­ist”. After being detained for nearly 6 months on weapons charges, VICE met up with Rakem on the day he was released from prison to learn more about the events lead­ing to his arrest and real-​world reper­cus­sions of the new “Black Iden­tity Extrem­ist” label.

We will try to make con­tact with this group of think­ing brothers.

Editor’s Note: Ques­tion — When did the KKK ever do food drives?

On a per­sonal note if I have to spend 6 mounts in jail for no valid rea­son I’m look­ing for pay­back. Even if they are able to type a few dig­its on a com­puter in a bank some­where. Its not the peo­ple fault that the sys­tem on almost on all lev­els is bro­ken. When will we learn the sim­ple truth that “OUR TIME IS NOT FREE!” Only two types of peo­ple do things for free those who are in love, and those who are enslaved. Should you find your­self in this posi­tion (or one like it) remem­ber to advice the pol­icy enforce­ment office that your time is not free and also advice them of your fee schedule.

ie. five hun­dred dol­lars an hour if detained and 5,000 an hour if incarcerated.

We must always remem­ber that these are com­mer­i­cal processes and money is being exchanged! Even if you think it’s about some­thing else, it’s not!
