Slain NYPD Cop Randolph Holder had history of terrorizing African community

NEW YORK––A reliable source of the Community Patrol Unit Cop Watch cites Holder as aggressive, plain clothes cops, who harassed and terrorized young people in the community.
The African community in Jefferson Housing Projects, New York City, where Holder was stationed, is occupied by police just like Afghanistan and Iraq are occupied by the U.S. military in declared war zones. 
Two cops were killed last fall, in New York City, at Brooklyn's Tompkins Houses projects,
where police also function as an occupying army. 
Brian Moore, another cop, was killed in Queens, NY on May 2, 2015 after allegedly questioning Demetrius Blackwell for adjusting his belt. 
When an African is engaged by the police, death can be a likely outcome for that African. It has been reported that 1,000 people have been killed by police in the U.S., as of November 1, 2015.
The U.S. government and all of its police and military forces function as an oppressive, containment apparatus in every African community.
In previous years it has been documented that the NYPD has stopped and frisked over 800,000 people per year. This alarming rate speaks to the war that has been waged on the African Community.
When Holder was killed the ruling class media bombarded its audience with stories of rallying support of their "hero cop" for his role in oppressing the African community where he was stationed.
Endless streams of vigils and grieving family members, co-workers and supporters filled TV screens.
The police are agents of the State
All of the ruling class newspapers held Holder in high regards as an immigrant from Guyana, a third generation policeman who wanted to serve his community.
Individual police, regardless of ethnicity, serve as the armed wing of the State.
Protecting members of the African community is not in their job description. The Uhuru Movement and the Black Is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations (BIBC), of which it is a part, calls for Black Community Control of the Police. 
The black power demand for Black Community Control of the Police is an exercise of self-determination.
If crime and murder is to be eradicated from the African community, it can only be done when the people of that community sets the policy and terms that should be carried out. 
The war that has been waged on the African community by the U.S. government won't be solved by sensitivity training, dash cams or more police. 
Self-determination is the only solution and African people must be armed with the information as to what to do when they are engaged by the police.
