“I can’t breathe”, some to the point of an untimely and criminal death at the hands of rogue cops or an equally criminal AIM leadership.
Death is death whether it is natural, accidental or murder, and not much can be done about it other than the mourning and remembrances of survivors, the exception is when it occurs as an act of murder.
If you’re choking a man like Eric Garner down and death results that qualifies as murder, if you pull the trigger or authorize it you also become a murderer.
I can’t breathe – true of Eric, Annie Mae Pictou Aquash, Perry Ray Robinson jr, Johnny Moore, Nogeeshik Aquash, Roque Duenas, those who lay in unmarked graves at WK2, and countless others.
Annie Mae couldn’t breathe due to a bullet in her head compliments of AIM – Perry Ray Robinson Jr. stopped breathing after being wounded and left to bleed to death, compliments of AIM – Johnny Moore ceased breathing after having his throat slashed with such ferocity as to nearly decapitate him, compliments of AIM – Nogeeshik Aquash choking on the smoke of his burning home while flames engulfed him , compliments of AIM – those in unmarked graves at WK2 lost the breath of life compliments of AIM – Roque Duenas breathed his last after being clubbed to death, compliments of AIM – Williams and Coler mortally wounded, struggling to breathe and shot at point blank range, not strictly compliments of AIM but having assumed a measure of ownership in the myth they created for Peltier and the support they have offered.
The shared characteristic in the deaths of those mentioned is the injustice and the lack of accountability enjoyed by those responsible.
A lack of accountability that restricts the ability of their survivors to breathe.
Received the link in an SB AIM centric spam – so I copied the link, checked it out, and including along with other links to songs to address an additional reality, one SB cannot bring himself to confront much less admit.
There is a comment section on SB’s soundcloud page, might be interesting to see what his response would be if any were to request he compose a song for AIM’s murder victims.
