Random Black Men In Memphis Can Now Be Arrested Because of Gang Injunctions

mass incarceration

Law enforcement officials in Memphis, TN are now resorting to more aggressive measures to incarcerate Melanoid men.

Earlier this week, an article was published on WREG (an NBC affiliate in Memphis)’s website, which reported the Memphis police’s alleged crackdown on crime in the Binghampton area of Memphis.

Tuesday (January 26), court injunctions were placed on two gangs, the Vicelords and the Grape Street Crips.

To the uninformed masses, this would appear to be a noble deed committed by the Memphis police. On the contrary, gang injunctions have had a notorious history of singling out innocent Black males (just because they randomly knew of a gang member, for example), and often gives municipalities in urban areas across the U.S. reason to gentrify traditionally Black neighborhoods.

We will continue to keep you informed of further developments as it pertains to this story.

    This so called enforcement of black gangs in Memphis should also apply to the white supremacist groups and other ethnic gangs,posses etc who pose a threat to us. But we know that can’t happen because a sizeable amount of law enforcement is down with these groups.
