WILL THERE EVER BE JUSTICE? by Rondha Gibson

Justice WILL THERE EVER BE JUSTICE? by Rondha Gibson

Justice?

Can there ever really be justice? I never thought I would question this

Really never cared or had a reason to give it too much thought before

 I arrived in Las Vegas in 2000 due to the passing of my father

It was  a sad time for me reconnecting with my little sister

Who I hadn’t seen in many years. This is how I met Stanley L. Gibson

My brother in law and him were friends and he had come over one day

And that basically was the day we started our life together

For the next 12 years it was just Stan-N-Rondha

Two orphans against the world, but we had love

We shared a love that no-one could ever understand

But it was our love and then in one quick instant it was gone

By the hands of the people that say they are here to serve and protect

What they don’t tell you is they only serve and protect each other

They say if you are robbed you should call the police but

I ask you who do I call when Metro was the one who robbed me

This power LVMPD has to kill without consequence needs to end

Too much blood has been spilt due to their actions

Too much innocent blood has been shed

Stand beside me and let our voices be heard

NEVER FORGET!  NEVER FORGET!

 Rondha Gibson

Widow of Stanley L. Gibson

And victim of

 The actions of LVMPD & Jesus Arevalo

Will Justice be Denied Yet Again in Las Vegas?

About NVCopBlock.org

Cop Block is a decentralized project supported by a diverse group of individuals united by their shared goals of police accountability, education of individual rights and the dissemination of effective tactics to utilize while filming police. We seek to highlight the double standard that some grant to those with badges. By documenting police actions – whether they are illegal, immoral or just a waste of time and resources – then calling the police stations involved (ideally while recording and then later sharing your conversation), we can work together to bring about transparency and have a real impact. In addition to this direct pressure on police departments we want to be an educational resource on institutional changes that would curtail the common right-violations and unaccountability today by those with badges and a place to showcase different techniques, viewpoints and courses of action.

Spread Nevada CopBlock!

    Thanks for sharing Rondha. Loosing someone close is tough enough, I can’t imagine what it must be like to know that the aggressor has thus far, not been subjected to recourse based on their place of employment.

    It’s great to know you now have a community of folks around you who also recognize the wrong and who are working to get that remedied. Know that by speaking out you’re empowering others.

    I just reposted your write-up: http://www.copblock.org/will-there-ever-be-justice/
