chicago-stand-up

A Muslim woman was jumped by a few Chicago police monsters. They profiled her, ganged up on her, took of her hijab, grab her back pack full of food to break fast with, interrogated her with uneducated and unlogical questions such as "why are you carrying food?", "why are you covering your body?", stripped searched her after arresting her for not conducting herself properly to the monsters who jumped her, all the while the Internet bigots add more ridicule to not only her but the religion she so proud fully carries with support full comments such as Islam teaches Muslims to kill white people and non believers. It is incidents like this that has me locked in my room with my phone off and my head in my pillows. I never thought I would live a world as such as this one, where bad guys walk freely after tearing a nation with war and genocide and innocent people who walk with conviction and purpose are left naked and bloody. I'm one more bad news from drowning myself in a sea full of sharks. Someone please do something. Someone please say something. Men, where are you? Why are you turning into monsters? BTW, fuck you Chicago and fuck you social injustice.
