An Interview of historical Police Brutality in Omaha with Adam Fletcher Sasse, a local North Omaha historian.
Omaha is a racist and segregated city, and many cannot fully respond to issues confronting the community because of white fragility and apartheid behaviors. Judicial and law enforcement have been allowed to (conspire) ignore the facts of many people of color dying in law enforcement custody over the years, as indicated by Adam's report.
A'Jamal Byndon, a long-time community advocate and Chairman of the Board of MORE, will interview Adam Flecher Sasse, a nonprofit executive writer, and speaker. He runs a national nonprofit education organization in Olympia, Washington. Adam is a white guy born in Canada and raised in North Omaha as a person living in poverty. He has written hundreds of articles on the life and times of the North Omaha community. His most recent piece is on the historical behaviors of law enforcement and the collaboration of the legal and judicial system to maintain and not bring closure for African Americans murdered by the Omaha Police and other law enforcement officials. His website has many insightful issues about North Omaha.
Mr. Fletcher Sasse said he enjoys the privilege of not getting some repercussion because he does not currently live in Omaha. He also has gleaned from news clippings and other documents demonstrating the 33 examples of these killings. George Floyd's case comes to mind in Minnesota that was captured on video. Yet, if there were cell phone recordings, many more law enforcement officers would be held accountable for the historical traumas to African Americans in Omaha. The time has come for racial healing and transparency in Omaha systems.
The event is an open opportunity for folks to review the cases, help bring closure, and stop the hypocrisy of extraordinary gaslighting about police-community relations. A'Jamal will provide the opening questions and allow participants to raise questions and comments with Mr. Fletcher Sasse about the article.
