Law Enforcement shooting citizens in the back with shotguns and getting away with it

I found the two below photos [here] by doing an image search using the words, "law enforcement klansman with shotgun," not in quotes. I am doing a post on Jonathan Daniels. The Wikipedia article on Daniels [found here], cut and pasted below two unrelated photos.

I went to a [New Hampshire High School performance] of, "Our Town," last night. I learned about Jonathan Daniels and another member of the clergy being shot in back with shotguns where the law enforcement officer was not punished. Not much has changed today. They are just slicker, have more tools, and are less obvious with their abuse. The Irish, Italian, Jewish, and other Mafias, along with the offspring of Ku Klux Klan members can sit in the same bleachers cheering on the same teams their kids play together in, intermarry, and some are part of an even bigger, more inclusive version of the Ku Klux Klan, the insiders in government Mafia. It is even a bigger version of them against us.

The Ku Klux Klan infiltrated law enforcement, the courts, town hall, and major businesses in areas for long periods of our American past. Something similar exists today. Outsiders who get mouthy, want a piece of the pie, or want social justice are still targeted, jailed on trumped up charges, all court cases rigged, are financially ruined, have their families and reputations ruined, and some are even still tortured and murdered, just not hung from a nearby tree as a message.

Blogspot, youtube, etc are all Google. Google is allegedly NSA. I was asked for a phone number by google inorder to continue to blog. It is only a matter of time before even little voices like mine are silenced on the web. Let's see if they'll censor or not allow plays written with a sense of educating others in what is really going on behind the modern curtain of Oz.

Jonathan Myrick Daniels (March 20, 1939 – August 20, 1965) was an Episcopal seminarian, killed for his work in the American civil rights movement. His death helped galvanize support for the civil rights movement within the Episcopal church. He is regarded as a martyr in the Episcopal church.[1][2] One of the five elementary schools in his hometown of Keene, New Hampshire is named in memory of him.

Born in Keene, New Hampshire, Jonathan Myrick Daniels was the child of Phillip Brock Daniels (14 July 1904 - December 1959), a Congregationalist physician, and Constance Weaver (20 August 1905 - 9 January 1984). Daniels joined the Episcopal Church as a young man and considered a career in the ministry as early as high school. He graduated from the Virginia Military Institute after graduating from Keene High School,[3] where he began to question his religious faith during his sophomore year, possibly because his father died and his sister Emily suffered an extended illness at the same time. He graduated as valedictorian of his class and, in the fall of 1961, entered Harvard University to study English Literature. In the spring of 1962, Daniels was attending an Easter service at the Church of the Advent in Boston, and felt his doubt disappear, to be replaced with a renewed conviction that he was being called to serve God. Soon after, he decided to pursue ordination, and after a period of working out family financial problems, he applied and was accepted to Episcopal Theological School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, starting his studies in 1963 and expecting to graduate in 1966.

Civil Rights work:
In March 1965, Daniels answered the call of Dr. Martin Luther King, who asked that students and clergy come to Selma, Alabama, to take part in a march to the state capital in Montgomery. Daniels and several other seminary students left for Alabama on Thursday, and had intended to only stay the weekend, but Daniels and friend Judith Upham missed the bus home. Forced to stay a little longer, Daniels and Upham realized how badly it must appear to the native civil rights workers that they were only willing to stay a few days. Convinced they should stay longer, the two went back to school just long enough to request permission to spend the rest of the semester in Selma, studying on their own and returning at the end of the term to take exams. Daniels stayed with a local African-American family, the West family. During the next months, Daniels devoted himself to integrating the local Episcopal church, taking groups of young African-Americans to the church, where they were usually scowled at or ignored. In May, Daniels traveled back to school to take his semester exams, and having passed, he came back to Alabama in July to continue his work. Among his other work, Daniels helped assemble a list of federal, state, and local agencies that could provide assistance to those in need. He also tutored children, helped poor locals apply for aid, and worked to register

On August 13, 1965, Daniels, in a group of 29 protesters, went to picket whites-only stores in the small town of Fort Deposit, Alabama. All of the protesters were arrested and taken to jail in the nearby town of Hayneville. Five juvenile protesters were released the next day. The rest of the group was held for six days; they refused to accept bail unless everyone was bailed. Finally, on August 20, the prisoners were released without transport back to Fort Deposit. After release, the group waited by a road near the jail. Daniels with three others—a white Catholic priest and two black protesters—went down the street to get a cold soft drink at Varner's Grocery Store, one of the few local stores that would serve nonwhites. They were met at the front by Tom L. Coleman, an engineer for the state highway department and unpaid special deputy, who wielded a shotgun. The man threatened the group, and finally leveled his gun at sixteen-year-old Ruby Sales. Daniels pushed Sales down to the ground and caught the full blast of the gun. He was killed instantly. The priest, Richard F. Morrisroe, grabbed the other protester and ran. Coleman shot Morrisroe, wounding him in the lower back.[4] Coleman was subsequently acquitted of manslaughter charges by an all-white jury.[5] Richmond Flowers, Sr., the then Attorney General of Alabama, described the verdict as representing the "democratic process going down the drain of irrationality, bigotry and improper law enforcement." [6] Coleman died at age 86 on June 13, 1997 without having faced any further prosecution. [7]


One of the five elementary schools in his hometown of Keene, New Hampshire, is named after him.[1] He is also one of forty martyrs memorialized at Southern Poverty Law Center's Civil Rights Memorial in Montgomery, Alabama. In 2010, a commemorative pilgrimage in Hayneville included Ruby Sales and Bishop Todd Ousley of the Episcopal Diocese of Eastern Michigan.[8]

Jonathan Myrick Daniels was listed as a martyr by the Episcopal Church in 1991, his name added to the official church calendar of "Lesser Feasts and Fasts" for the date August 14.[5][9]
