RESOLUTION FOR MICHAEL PATRICK JACOBS JR.



Delivered to the Family on this 25th Day, April, 2009
On Behalf of the Blogging Community Worldwide
Presented by Eddie Griffin (BASG), AfroSpear and Afrosphere Action Coalition

Romans 16:16 Salute one another with a holy kiss. The churches of Christ salute you. I bring you our humble greetings and condolences also from those who share this hour of grief.

I am lost for words of comfort to the Jacobs Family. I feel like Moses. I am not an eloquent man of speech, and even as I write this Resolution, my heart is too torn apart to call this a homegoing celebration.

Michael Patrick Jacobs, Jr. was only 24 years old when he died. He is about the same age as my oldest grandson. And, if I were sitting in the seat of Michael Jacobs, Sr. and Charlottte, it would be hard for me to celebrate my son’s homegoing, when he was snatched away so suddenly and so violently.

I am blinded this day by tears of sadness, because this young man did not have to die like this. Brother Kyev Tatum touched the heart of the entire world when he spoke into the camera and said, “This young man did not have to die like this.”

We know also that Michael did not have to die like this because we have been warning police departments all across the United States that Tasers Kill. Tasers send out a 50,000-volt charge into a person. If we shock ourselves on an electrical outlet, we only get hit with 120 volts. When they executed men on death row, Old Sparky only generated 20,000 volts.

A few years ago, the Fort Worth Police Department and the Fort Worth Independent School district proposed using tasers on school children. That’s when we said: Enough is enough.

Thanks to a fellow blogger in Canada, we have compiled a list of everyone executed by taser electrocution. The list is hereby attached to this Resolution, in memory of all those who died by Tasers. But I would be remiss if I did not mention the name of those who died at the hands of the Fort Worth Police Department.

  1. Eddie, powerful post. The number of people being tased to death is scary. Thank you for working with other afrospear members to lead in this effort.

    Best wishes,

  2. It's one thing to see a number - but to see the names attached to that number, well the impact is far more profound.

    Much obliged...

  3. I agree this senseless practice must be stopped, my nephew was tased 8 times for resisting arrest in Ft. Worth. Funny thing is the only thing he was arrested for was resisting arrest. After two days of the police lying on the stand, a video was presented of the truth, a sad display of a pack mentality abusing a young man while he pleaded for them to stop and sssured he was not resisting arrest. The jury found my nephew not guilty. I just thank God every day he was not one of the fatalities.

  7. I hope Eddie or the website owner will respond to this question on this page. I was surprised to see how many people have been killed by tasers. My question is the following: Is this list only of black victims of tasers, or does this list include people of all races?

    ReplyDelete
  8. Anonymous, This represents an inclusive list of taser victims of all nationalities.

  9. Thank-you for remembering my Uncle. He was killed way too young and with no purpose. He is missed everyday!

  10. Thank you. #267 Robert A. Keske is missed by his son everyday. Murdered by 8 tasers for one man! These police get to be judge, jury, and executioners. There are other alternatives.
