You guys remember that iconic pic of the guy throwing the tear gas canister during the first Ferguson demonstrations?

Ferguson filed charges against him over a year later!

He’s fighting the charges and needs help.

He originally had a GoFundMe but they TOOK IT DOWN!!

Reminder: GFM allowed Darren Wilson’s to proceed unscathed.

Here’s the new funding opportunity: https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/c12It9

First State Legalizes Taser Drones for Cops, Thanks to a Lobbyist | Daily Beast

North Dakota police will be free to fire ‘less than lethal’ weapons from the air thanks to the influence of Big Drone.

It is now legal for law enforcement in North Dakota to fly drones armed with everything from Tasers to tear gas thanks to a last-minute push by a pro-police lobbyist.

With all the concern over the militarization of police in the past year, no one noticed that the state became the first in the union to allow police to equip drones with “less than lethal” weapons. House Bill 1328 wasn’t drafted that way, but then a lobbyist representing law enforcement—tight with a booming drone industry—got his hands on it.

The bill’s stated intent was to require police to obtain a search warrant from a judge in order to use a drone to search for criminal evidence. In fact, the original draft of Representative Rick Becker’s bill would have banned all weapons on police drones.

Then Bruce Burkett of the North Dakota Peace Officer’s Association was allowed by the state house committee to amend HB 1328 and limit the prohibition only to lethal weapons. “Less than lethal” weapons like rubber bullets, pepper spray, tear gas, sound cannons, and Tasers are therefore permitted on police drones.

Becker, the bill’s Republican sponsor, said he had to live with it.

“This is one I’m not in full agreement with. I wish it was any weapon,” he said at a hearing in March. “In my opinion there should be a nice, red line: Drones should not be weaponized. Period.”

Even “less than lethal” weapons can kill though. At least 39 people have been killed by police Tasers in 2015 so far, according to The Guardian. Bean bags, rubber bullets, and flying tear gas canisters have also maimed, if not killed, in the U.S. and abroad.

Becker said he worried about police firing on criminal suspects remotely, not unlike U.S. Air Force pilots who bomb the so-called Islamic State, widely known as ISIS, from more than 5,000 miles away.

I noticed how many warnings there were for the video and you don’t even see blood. You just here gunshots and screaming while you watch their legs run away. There is nothing graphic about the video, and if it wasn’t explicitly stated that the people were dead I would’ve thought everyone survived.

micdotcom:

As discussion of yesterday’s shooting turns to media use of the graphic footage, this point is important to remember. There are stark inconsistencies in coverage of these black and white deaths on camera — and the reaction to the footage yesterday was quite different from what we’ve seen in recent months.

White UPS Driver Gives Black Worker A Makeshift Noose


Alright,I just had to share this video for this blog since I wasn’t able to write anything last week.It seems to me that racism is alive and well especially in the workplace.But what really surprised me is that this sh*t took place in one of the largest companies in the world.

This is also one of the biggest reasons why black folks need to stick together and start our own businesses because of things like this which is protected by certain policies still seem to take place since most workers and managers still manage to break company policies even when they are in place.It’s sad as a black man particularly as an African to see something like this because even though we as a people from the continent have never experienced what African Americans have experienced we still feel it through our form of punishment which is colonialism and neocolonialism.

DETROIT, MI

SAT AUG 29 - 2:00 PM

GRAND CIRCUS PARK
Woodward & E Adams

Stop the War on Detroit - People’s Assembly & Speakout

From Greece to Puerto Rico to Spain and Across the US workers are fighting back against the austerity being imposed the banks and financial institutions.

Thousands of households face foreclosure and eviction in neighborhoods already devastated by years of predatory mortgage lending by the banks. Some 25,000 families are facing water shutoffs while the banks got paid $537 million on interest rate swindles. Schools are shuttered while property taxes are diverted to pay off debt service to the banks. Youth face joblessness and the school to prison pipeline. If they have a job it does not pay enough to live on.

This was on Chris Dorner’s Facebook before it was taken down. I’m really afraid he is being framed. The LAPD is the most corrupted police force. He was fired for bringing the attention to a police officer who was beating someone who was mentally ill, and handcuffed. He wanted justice for the innocent citizen, but instead the LAPD sided with the criminal. Said it was crossing the “blue line”.
He’s done good deeds all throughout his life. Even finding $8000 stolen from a church and returned it.
This story doesn’t add up LAPD. The LAPD has also asked to stop tweeting and posting about the case because it is “interrupting their investigation.”
..hmm. Something’s fishy about this.

UPDATE: All of the screenshots can be found here-
http://beforeitsnews.com/blogging-citizen-journalism/2013/02/breaking-chris-dorner-posts-on-facebook-2445416.html

And now they are saying that
“Any reports of a body being found are not true.”
Source:
http://blog.pe.com/crime-blotter/2013/02/12/dorner-manhunt-officials-backtrack-on-body-being-found/

What upsets me the most is that he’s not allowed a fair trial. Each time they believe they see him the LAPD has tried killing him. Remember: everyone is innocent until proven guilty. He has only been a SUSPECT. How come the man who blew up a theatre has the right to a trial? But this man doesn’t?

Never Forget

revolutionary-mindset:

WALLER COUNTY, Texas -
The Prairie View City Council voted Tuesday night to rename University Boulevard, the road to the Prairie View A&M University campus, to Sandra Bland Boulevard.

The vote came after an afternoon of demonstrations backing the move. Bland’s death prompted numerous protests of law enforcement handling of her case. Bland’s mother and sister were present for the vote.

A July 10 traffic stop in Prairie View escalated into a confrontation between Bland and a state trooper that led to Bland’s arrest. She was found hanged in her Waller County jail cell in Hempstead July 13 in a death ruled suicide.
