I’m going to have to watch more….the parts I caught yesterday with the judge talking ‘bout folks are acting inappropriate by “gasping and getting up and walking out” in response to crime scene photos….da fuq…mofos can’t gasp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is so true!!!! I have been doing my best to keep up with the trail but everybody I talk to about it has NO idea that its happening or never heard of Renisha.  Its so saddening.  Now I will say if the trial itself is triggering for you to stay updated but avoid watching it.  But Renisha deserves justice & our attention, so stay woke & don’t forget this young woman.

I’ve been keeping up with it and I’m just incredibly nervous and anxious b/c they’ve changed judges b/c the first judge was a Black woman who was suspected of being unbiased for supporting the family/organizaation that was seeking justice for renisha. The whole entire process has been them actively trying to criminalize her corpse and delve into what was in her system and if she was partying or not…like. it’s so stressful and we’re only on day 4.

NYPD officer pictured ‘putting seven-months pregnant woman into a chokehold for illegally grilling outside her apartment’

An advocacy group has released images which claim to show an NYPD officer putting a seven-months pregnant woman into a chokehold for illegally grilling on the sidewalk in front of her apartment. 

NYPD officers have been banned from using the chokehold since 1993, but an officer can be seen in the pictures wrapping his arm around 27-year-old Rosan Miller’s neck in the Saturday incident. 

Her young daughter is also in the pictures, watching the arrest unfold.

Illegally grilling on the sidewalk! What a hardened, dangerous criminal! And I bet that little girl now has a very solid grasp on who she can trust and what’s ok to do to women and/or people who are physically weaker than you!

NYPD Officer Draws Gun And Stomps On Man’s Head In Bed Stuy

The NYPD placed a Bed-Stuy police officer on modified duty Friday after a video surfaced showing him stepping on a man’s head and pointing a gun at his face while placing him under arrest, officials and police sources said.

The video shows two officers from the 81st Precinct subduing a man identified by activists as Jahmil-El Cuffee, 32, in the driveway of a Bed-Stuy home before taking him to the ground while he appears to be resisting arrest. The officers arrested him for smoking a joint, police sources said.

While his partner continues to subdue Cuffee, the video shows the unidentified officer pull out what appears to be a firearm, briefly pointing it at the man’s face before then putting it away as onlookers yelled at the two policemen.

The same officer then walks away from the situation before returning, lifting his leg and stepping down in the vicinity of Cuffee’s head as another officer walks in front of the camera amidst screams from onlookers.

Later, the man recording the video says, “I just watched them stomp on that man’s head. And you had him on the floor already.

The arrest comes amid growing criticism of the NYPD stemming from the death of Eric Garner, a Staten Island man who died after being wrestled to the ground and put into what appeared to be a chokehold. That incident was also recorded on cellphone video.

Another video surfaced days later showing an officer using a chokehold on a man and punching him in an East Harlem subway station. That officer remains on active duty, police said.

Thanks to Stoneyg Loc for taking this video and making sure the cops knew they were on camera. The officer was ready to kill a man for smoking a joint. A tragedy was avoided because he had the courage to record the cops and hold them accountable for their use of excessive force. 

I live in Bed-Stuy & there are cops everywhere all the time, including two watch towers. 

Record cops with NYCLU’s Stop & Frisk app

It has three primary functions:

  • RECORD: This allows the user to film an incident with audio by simply pushing a trigger on the phone’s frame. Shaking the phone stops the filming. When filming stops, the user immediately receives a brief survey allowing them to provide details about the incident. The video and survey will go to the NYCLU, which will use the information to shed light on the NYPD’s stop-and-frisk practices and hold the Department accountable for its actions.
  • LISTEN: This function alerts the user when people in their vicinity are being stopped by the police. When other app users in the area trigger Stop and Frisk Watch, the user receives a message reporting where the police stop is happening. This feature is especially useful for community groups who monitor police activity.
  • REPORT: This prompts the survey, allowing users to report a police interaction they saw or experienced, even if they didn’t film it.

white people are responsible for every foul deed ever done. White people are the devil and people of color literally did nothing wrong EVER.

"people are talking about the side of history I wasn’t taught in school and it makes me uncomfortable to be presented with facts"

HISTORY ACCORDING EVERY OTHER PART OF LIFE:

White people were the originators of everything, everyone else was inferior, Black people were only slaves
