Festival of Hypocrisy: From Ferguson to the NFL. Beyond Victor's Justice
Ishmael Reed, Chris Black
Ishmael Reed explains how the race card is played with violence in all its forms -- from sports, to police, to domestic violence, and to media bias, which literally colours the tone of the violence.
Cases discussed range from the police murdering Michael Brown in Ferguson, and Oscar Grant in Oakland, to the current focus on NFL Black players' violence against their wives and/or children. This wrongly makes domestic violence a solely "Black" American issue. There is media censorship against black journalists who deviate from the corporate line.
Chris Black gives the history of General Augustin Ndindiliyimana, who was falsely charged with genocide in Rwanda during the 1994 conflict. Gen. Ndindiliyimana was one of the most senior military figures tried by the court based in Tanzanian, Arusha.
Ndindiliyimana spent 7 years in trial refuting lies and 14 years imprisoned. The General was not allowed to visit his dying young son in Belgium.
He was acquitted of the major charge of participation in massacres in June of 2011 and acquitted of minor charges related to oversight of personnel in February, 2014. On September 22, 2014, Gen. Ndindliyman was released to Belgium where his family resides.
The trial judges made a very significant statement that charges against Gen. Ndindilyiman were politically motivated. They clarified: When Gen. Ndindiliyimana refused to falsely testify against General Bagosora, false charges were laid against Ndindiliyimana to further pressure him.

Association des Avocats de la Defence - Association of Defense Lawyers
ARUSHA TZ – 18/12: Today’s ICTR judgments in the Military-I trial completely rejected the Prosecution theory of long-term planning and conspiracy to commit genocide by members of the former Rwandan military leadership. All four defendants were found “not guilty” of all counts charging conspiracy to commit genocide, based on the Chambers ruling that their actions prior to April 6, 1994 were based on war-time conditions, not planning to kill civilians or to carry out a genocide against Tutsi Rwandans.

The three other defendants were convicted of responsibility for pa...
