  1. Kreb, Bill tried to post this comment to YOUR site, but could not and so he posted it on mine in the hopes that I could relay it to you. And so here it is.

    From Bill Ziegler:

    “When I saw the word “backpack” I immediately placed this story in the context of all the Black kids who have experienced the nightmare that became infamous ten years ago this May when Kalief Browder was arrested in the Bronx. Browder originally thought it was what he had already suffered multiple times already at the hands of the Blue Lives — “stop and frisk.” The New York of Trump and Bloomberg, and certainly not only NYC or the Trump and Bloomberg twins.

    “Neither the stolen backpack in question, nor its contents, were ever recovered. There seems to be no indication that Browder ever faced his supposed accuser directly, or that this Mr. Bautista ever made so much as a single court appearance. To be frank, there seems to be NO proof that the individual who “accused” Browder of robbing him EVER EVEN EXISTED. And unless you’re looking for a Spanish tennis player, good luck finding a “Roberto Bautista” on the internet. The guards who were known to have abused and tortured Browder have never been publicly identified, and there is no indication that any of these bastards were ever punished. The same goes for the pigs who originally arrested Browder, along with his friend, back in May 2010. None of the numerous judges that Browder stood before in countless court appearances, nor the prosecutors who cynically pursued a boundless criminal case against him, have ever been forced to answer for their actions.”

    1. Thanks for the assist, Shelby. Bill, this story made me think about Kalief Browder’s story as well. To this day, I still can’t bring myself to discuss his story without becoming very emotional. Thank you.
