San Bernardino Police Shooting
I woke up to a horrible news story this morning
The video clip even came with a warning
"The video you are about to see may disturb you"
The video begins at the end of a police chase
I understand excess violence for violent offenders, but this wasn't the case
The passenger was a soldier returned from Iraq, he was not the driver
This twenty-one year old man is a true survivor
A Police officer shouts "get down on the ground"
Compliance, no argument found
He is still yelling the tension is high
The soldier shouts "hey, I'm on your side"
"Get up, get up" the cop bellows back
It is in this instance that the officer attacked
The soldier moves slowly, hands in the air
This didn't matter he was still shot three times, he needs our prayer
His name is Ellio Carion
and luckly his life goes on
How about the cop in San Bernardino
He was given "paid leave" wouldn't you know
Cops are not above the law and they need to be treated so
If I shot a man, on me a PAID vacation, they would not bestow
*Never forget the sacrifice these soldiers have made
*When they come home, is this how they are to be repaid?
