Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind


Within this Age and Generation.....
It's evidently clear I'm a statistic of mass incarceration....
Racial Profiling....
Stop and Frisk.....
Stereotypical,Tactical measures....
The primary "Suspects",
Latinos and Blacks.....
Solefully intended for " Minorities of Color"
Threats to the "Communities"
Threats to the public.....

For heavens sake,
Take these violent "offenders" off the streets,
Put them "Out of sight,Out of mind"....
Punish these "Offenders" for their heinous crimes

Take then from there Families destroy their lives

Racial Profiling....
Stop and Frisk...
Stereotypical,Tactical measures ...

All at the expense of Tax payers dollars...

Pre-trial detainees
Innocent until proven guilty,
"We the people", of the United States of America
In all due Respect none of these rights technically apply..

The Freedom of Speech...
The Right to Bear Arms...
The Right to search and Seizure....

Within this generation,within this era...
It's nothing more then an illusion....

The U.S. Constitution will NEVER be modified....
You, as an AMERICAN CITIZEN,
Only, as a rightful Law abiding Citizen will u ever obtain these rights...

Excuse me Sir,
Excuse me Madam,
What is your Name?
What is Your Race?
Is that a sweater or a hoodie?
Black or, Gray?
Where do you reside?

Licenses and Registration
For heavens sake,all documentations you MUST provide...
An at "ANY" moment and time have readily available,
Or else,
You may just become yet another statistic...
That Benz you drove....
Better yet, that Cadillac with the hydros...
Rather new or old...
It's now being towed...
An there you are another incident,
Another story being told...
Another Headline...
Another Local newspaper article,Another opportunity towards defemation if Character...
At the end of the day your just another statistic ...
At the expense of Tax Payers dollars...
Another swine...
Another Convict...
Another Violent Felon....
Another Parolee...

I'm other words "WASTED POTENTIAL"...
"Out of sight,Our of Mind"...

The Goverments
Municipal,Village, Town and County Agenda...

Your a threat to the "Community"...
Your a threat to the "Public"...

An now your just filling bed space...
To a County Jail or, Institutional Monopolization...
To "THEM",
Trust me it don't matter
"Out of Sight,Out of mind"...
The beds are filled for the meantime...

An if you have "ANY" questions...
Ask your Public Defenders...
Your date now lies on His or Her hands...

The Era of Mass Incarceration...
Even to them,
Trust me it don't matter...

You are where u are, and that's all that matters!

Your poor,Your indigent ...
You don't feed there Families, or pay there bills!

Therefore, Your voice is unheard...
Your future already determined...
The language they use, there body demeanors...
Legal terminologies, and Tactical approaches...

"To be aware,is to be alive"...

Excuse me Sir,
Excuse me Miss,
I spoke to the District Attorney (D.A.),Your guilty...
Your innocence can't be proven...

But, that's the bad news....

WAIT...

What's wrong?
DON'T CRY!
Bare with me,
I got good news,
Just don't go to trial and they will offer 15 yrs to Life!

An there u are,
Not to bad for a $100,000 dollar per year salary,
That same Benz or, Low-Low you drive, remember the Low-Low with the hydros,

We'll it's all the same concept,
While you sit back in that Cell,
"Out of sight,Out of Mind"...
A statistic of Mass Incarceration,
All at the expense of Tax Payers dollars!
Literally, Nickles and Dimes!
