Casual Killing Act 1669: Declared It Legal To Kill A Slave While Correcting Because Malice Could Not Be Presumed

6 Posted by - June 19, 2017 - LATEST POSTS

October, 1669. Act I: An act about the casual killing of slaves.

Whereas the only law in force for the punishment of refractory servants resisting their master, mistress or overseer cannot be inflicted upon negroes, nor the obstinacy of many of them by other than violent means suppressed, Be it enacted and declared by this grand assembly, if any slave resist his master (or others by his masters order correcting him) and by the extremity of the correction should chance to die, that his death shall not be considered a felony, but the master (or that other person appointed by the master to punish him) be acquitted from molestation, since it cannot be presumed that malice existed(which alone makes murder a felony) [or that anything] should induce any man to destroy his own estate.

    This is what police have been doing for years and getting away with it. Until the laws that prevent law enforcement officers from being convicted, the “Police Officers Bill of Rights, and campaign contributions from police unions changed they will continue to brazenly be hired assassins.

      Did you hear about the white State Trooper in Texas (Damon Allen) that was assassinated on Thanksgiving Day 2017. The suspect is Dabrett Montreal Black. For some reason it didn’t make national news, but you should look it up and read about it.

    So instead of sitting around bitching & complaining about this law..why don’t we agree to come together & get this law & others abolished in the courts!

      It was written over 300 years ago for God’s sake! Slavery has been abolished. That negates the law

    My thoughts exactly. All we want to do is bitch and complain asking for laws that have stood in place for centuries to change. Why would “they” want to change. They can’t relate to our problems. It’s left up to us if we want our problems fixed.

    Most people don’t even know about this law. The first step is to make people aware and then work on doing something about this law.

      The first step is to understand this is no longer a law

    The law was abolished in 1778. The mentality was not

    The awesome sign of a narcissist is to make you feel that the valid emotions & feelings you have aren’t real or if you’re just plan crazy. Also, their privilege of lack of melanin clouds their judgment as long as they get to have the upper hand. That’s why we’ve assimilated so many that look (lack of melanin) to our group so we seem like a majority, when we really are a minority. This is done to stay on top and keep others below them. Then on top of that let’s make African-Americans our target & get all other races to attack them as well. The gift assimilation, you’ll get great credit and always in front for bank loans. This is the other side of this act that you don’t get to see. Oh & you’re attacked if you do, because narcissists don’t like being called out. Much love!
