New Yorker Tyeesha Mobley was at a gas station near her Bronx apartment with her two sons when she caught the older boy, aged nine, stealing $10 out of her purse. Thinking this was a good opportunity to teach him a lesson about honesty and consequences, she called the police, asking them to help her communicate the seriousness of stealing.
When the police arrived, however, Mobley’s Arrested Development-style lesson quickly escalated into a terrifying situation. Three of the four officers who arrived at the gas station apparently understood that this was a lighthearted call.
“They started asking Tyleke what did he take,” said Mobley. “He told them. And about three officers was joking around with him, telling him, ‘You can’t be stealing, you’ll wind up going in the police car.'”
The fourth cop, however, had different ideas. He began yelling: “You black b—-es don’t know how to take care of your kids … why are you wasting our time, we aren’t here to raise your kid … why don’t you take your f—ing kid and leave?”
When she tried to follow his order, Mobley says the fourth officer arrested her, refusing to give a reason. While she and her children cried for him to stop, one of the other officers attempted to intervene, saying, “We are not supposed to act like this.”
He replied, “Black b—-es like that … this is how I treat them.”
After her arrest, Mobley was hospitalized for the bruises she’d sustained on her legs thanks to the fourth cop kicking her during the arrest. She successfully fought off child endangerment charges—a pretty interesting charge given that the “endangerment” in question seems to have been calling the police.
Mobley’s two children were placed in foster care for four months, where they reportedly received sub-par care. Now, having recovered her children—who have undoubtedly learned a very different lesson than the one she intended to teach—Mobley is suing the NYPD.
When Jason Disitso saw Officer Jonathan Munoz walk up to his friend and begin inappropriately touching her, sticking his hand in her pockets and frisking her, he did what anyone concerned with her safety might do in the 21st century: He asked another friend for his cell phone and began recording Munoz.
A police officer fatally shot an unarmed man during what police are calling a “violent struggle” in the East Village on Saturday. The shooting happened around 1:45 p.m. yesterday at what the Times refers to as“a supportive housing complex for people with mental illnesses” on E. 6th Street near Avenue A.
The 22-year-old victim, whom the Post has identified as Felix David, was the suspect in a robbery last Thursday at City College.
Cops tracked him down to the East Village facility, and say David fled out a window on the sixth floor and down a fire escape. Although David was unarmed, cops say that “a struggle ensued between the suspect and the two detectives.” This ‘violent struggle’ involved a police radio, which David allegedlygrabbed from one of the officers and used to strike both detectives on the head, causing lacerations.
During this one detective drew his firearm and fired once, striking David in the torso. He was taken to Beth Israel Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Both officers were taken to Bellevue with bruises and lacerations; both are in stable condition. Police add that the investigation is ongoing.
“At a moment when people across the country are reckoning with the deadly reality of police violence and the terror it imposes on black communities, the New York Police Department fractured the leg of a player in the National Basketball Association. The NYPD had an interaction with Thabo Sefolosha of the Atlanta Hawks, and they broke his damn leg.
Sefolosha’s damaged fibula comes after a season when NBA players spent last winter making statements against police violence, after the killings of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. It also comes at a time when police brutality is under an exacting microscope following the execution of Walter Scott by Officer Michael Slager in North Charleston, South Carolina. In the blinkered reality of the sports world, the big story is that the damage to Sefolosha has happened right when the Atlanta Hawks are about to enter the playoffs with the best record in the Eastern Conference, jeopardizing what has been a dream season.”
I honestly do not understand, are cops complete dunce to behave so “awkwardly”? But really, the American public has completely lost faith in the police, probably NO ONE (except the ruling class) trust the cops. The only emotion that causes the police is the fear for our lives, and not a sense of security. And cops continue to publicly demonstrate their brutality, apparently they think that citizens will soon cease to overreact to such cases. I hope that this will not happen.
Week after week, racist posts appear on Thee Rant, a blog for current or former New York City police officers: African Americans are called “apes;” a retired officer says one of the blessings of retirement is not having to work the Puerto Rican Day parade, with its “old obese tatted up women stuffed into outfits that they purchased or shoplifted at the local Kmart store; a Middle Eastern cab driver berated by an officer is termed a “third worlder” who should have his “head split open.”
According to the Free Thought Project, Copwatch Patrol Unit member Michael Barber said he saw two undercover officers attempting to arrest a 14-year-old girl around 7 p.m. Thursday on the corner of 140th St. and Hamilton Place in Harlem. The incident was “reportedly over allegations that a child who was with her, who witnesses say appeared to be around 7-years-old, had pushed the button on a police call box." That’s when her fellow New Yorkers stepped in.
NYPD turns down Black candidate with clean record.
“We have a significant population gap among African American males because so many of them have spent time in jail and, as such, we can’t hire them.” – NYPD Commissioner William Bratton on why there aren’t more Black cops
Mayor de Blasio has said that “You can be a New York police officer even if you once had a misdemeanor,” but 29-year-old Mark Shannon was sent a rejection letter citing two dismissed assault charges without so much as an interview. His qualifications include graduating cum laude from Tuskeegee University and serving as a substitute teacher in the NY public school system for the past 8 years with nary a blemish, but he’s unqualified because of two charges that were dismissed once all the facts were brought to light.
But Black cops are hard to find because so many of us have records. Got it.
Nine Months After He Filmed Eric Garner's Killing, the Cops Are Trying to Put Ramsey Orta Behind Bars
“At first I didn’t think it would blow up this big,” Ramsey Orta told me. He was describing the video he took of his friend Eric Garner being killed by the NYPD. His voice was nearly too soft to hear.
I interviewed Orta on April 10, nine months after Officer Daniel Pantaleo had choked Eric Garner to death in front of Staten Island’s Bay Beauty Supply. In December, a grand jury declined to indict Pantaleo, but Orta, his supporters say, has been the target of a police campaign to destroy his life ever since.
When I spoke to him, he was at the tail end of a two-month stint on Rikers Island, locked up on $100,000 bail and awaiting trial for drug charges. Orta is 23 years old and slight, with sharp cheekbones that his time in Rikers had made almost disturbingly prominent. Terrified of being poisoned, he’d been living off of pre-packaged commissary food since he entered jail. The fear is better founded than you might think—19 prisoners in Orta’s unit are suing the city over pellets of rat poison they allege guards planted in their meatloaf.
Wikipedia discourages users from making edits that might be considered a ‘conflict of interest’. The NYPD is trying to do whatever it can to manipulate and steer the narrative around their disturbing behavior and we cannot allow them to do that. These weren’t corrections to inaccurate facts: This was a blatant attempt at the retelling of history.
Cops write on Facebook that a slain 14-year-old deserved to die
In a brutal ambush caught on surveillance video, 14-year-old Bronx teen Christopher Duran was shot four times and died while screaming for his mother. Though Duran already had five previous arrests on his record, no one could possibly blame such a young victim for his own tragic murder.
No one, except for three former New York Police Department officers who took to Facebook to call the 14-year-old a “piece of shit thug,” a “piece of trash” and a “menace to the neighborhood.” And yes, their comments get worse.
Why do people only care about Baltimore? It’s the only thing on the news. On Twitter, on tumblr.
Why are people of color the only ones that get hashtags?
This nypd officer was 25 years old.
But no one cares when a cop dies.
‘The video captured undercover officers grabbing at children while attempting to arrest a 14-year-old girl. This was reportedly over allegations that a child who was with her, who witnesses say appeared to be around 7-years-old, had pushed the button on a police call box.
What begins as a typical video of police abusing their badges takes a dramatic turn for the absolute best around six minutes in.
An angry member of the community boldly approached the officer and informed him that he has no business laying his hands on a 14-year-old child. She continues to bravely defend the child’s rights without backing down, adamantly demanding the officer’s names and drilling it into the teenagers that they need to tell their parents what the officers did.Around 6:20 the officer jumps out of his vehicle and charges towards one of the young girls who was calmly explaining to him that she had not done anything wrong. She continues to back away and witnesses, women and children, jump right in- trying to get between the teenager and the plain-clothed officer trying to snatch her.At 7:11 the officer makes another move to grab the young girl and a woman jumps in and rips her away from his grasp, as witnesses scream for the officers to go home.After successfully separating the officers from the children, one of the (superhero) women screams at the officers.
“You know you’re doing wrong! GO HOME!”
In one of the most shocking moments we have seen, the officers get in their unmarked car and leave.
With so many children dying at the hands of police, it is more important than ever to defend the youth’
The current situation in the US forces us to act this way, citizens actually gotta protect themselves and protect their children from the police. Each one can become a victim of the cops. Pigs are so convinced that their crimes largely go unpunished, so they missed all the border of their power. It’s sad, but we gotta fight, it is important to STAYWOKE, 2015, we can use the media, we need to know our rights, sometimes you have to use force, as this woman. Unfortunately this is modern America.
