How can this possibly still be a reality? No one can be expected to believe our lives matter when black lives obviously do not matter to our own people. We still live in a “white colonized society.” The treatment of white people and non-white people is not equal, it is obvious..

Race is an issue, while people are deprived of their right to simply feel safe inside their own home, walking to their grocery store, or calling their loved ones because they fear they may be dead!

ONLY IN AMERICA: Cops Shoot Up Innocent Family’s House Because They Got The ‘Wrong Address’

A Florida man says police shot up his house like a gang shooting, and it was all because they got the wrong address.

The man asked to not be identified, due to fear of retribution.

He said that he awoke to someone banging on the front door just before 1 a.m. He came to the door and asked who it was, but he got no response.

He was worried that it might be a burglar – since no one identified themselves – so he retrieved his own legally-owned firearm.

But when he got back to the door, bullets began flying through his front door.

Two bullets flew sailed past his head, with more bullets piercing through walls and shattered glass windows.

The man never broke the law. He didn’t even return fire when the trigger-happy cops shot at him. But his family was nonetheless handcuffed and humiliated by being sat on a curb outside.

Neighbors who saw the whole thing said that Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigators stayed at the home until noon Saturday.

The family was not allowed back into their own home until 10 hours after the police shot up their house for no legal reason.

“Upon arrival, a person was confronted and shots were fired,” Ocoee police Sgt. Bob Rivera said. “The investigation is ongoing by The Florida Department of Law enforcement.”

RAW STORY reports:

Police identified the officers as Carlos Anglero and Stephanie Roberts, who were both described as experienced officers.

None of the family members were injured, but their walls are riddled with bullet holes, their windows are shattered and some of their furniture was destroyed.

Now, even though the police admit they got the wrong house, an FDLE spokeswoman said their agency is opening a new investigation into an “incident” at the home, but she refused elaborate.

The department has not apologized for destruction of the house and a threat to people’s life. What was described as “confrontation” was the only reasonable reaction on unknown people acting like a criminal gang. Officers should identify themselves as police. The situation is crazy! As in many other cases with police shootings. They could kill innocent people. We need proper investigation. Cops shouldn’t get away with such a dangerous and hostile assault! If they get away, we all be in danger!

But guess who did? If you thought your average white person, you’d be correct. How many white people in full body robes do you see? It wasnt only the Ku Klux Klan who participated in activities in which blacks were hung. There were those that were led by believers of the Klan, not actual members. See, this is where the general clumping of white people began. Not all white people were racist at the time but a vast majority were, which generally scared black people causing them to be cautious near all white people, given their shared experience as a race. Much like today, not all cops are bad however a vast majority can be considered bad and/or racist given the actions of law enforcement strictly against black people on a national scale. We’re not just bunching all white people together in one racist group for fun. It’s not Black People playing the victim. It’s statistics. It’s facts. It’s history.

“It was very clear to me that India was not part of the police investigation based on the responses I got from police. She had nothing to do with it. She was totally innocent,” Best said. “Did they find any weapons on India? Did she pose a threat? Why did [police] shoot into a car with a baby and woman who had nothing to do with their investigation?” Kager’s mother, Gina N. Best. #Hate it!

Cop Thought He Saw a Child With Pot, So He Fired 7 Fatal Rounds Into His Back

Jonathen Santellana,17yo, years was sitting in his car in a parking space at an apartment complex in Houston, Texas with his friend, Kalee Marsteller, also 17. Navasota police officer Rey Garza decided to rush up to Santellana’s driver’s side window, brandishing a gun.

Naturally, Santellana and Marsteller thought this deranged man was trying to rob them, so Santellana put the car in reverse to escape. Garza tried to open the door as Santellana began driving away. Garza, claiming that he feared for his life, then shot Santellana in the back of the head and back, killing him.

The report from Cam Cope, president of Auto Fire & Safety Consultants of Conroe, shows that Garza’s version of events “is not consistent with any of the factual evidence.” It is being submitted by Santellana’s family directly to a grand jury for the case to be reconsidered. A grand jury decided not to indict Garza, believing that he shot Santellana out of fear for his own life.

Garza was acting as a “courtesy officer” for the apartment complex when he spotted Santellana holding something in his hands and grew suspicious. After crossing paths with Santellana, Garza went to his apartment and grabbed his gun. Garza then located Santellana in his car, and claims that he saw Santellana putting a green leafy substance into a prescription bottle.

Garza felt that this behavior was cause for him to accost Santallana. Here is where the factual evidence contradicts Garza’s sworn testimony.

Garza claims that he “asked Jonathen to get out of the Chevrolet Malibu, then opened the driver’s door and reached in with his right hand to remove the keys from the ignition, as he alleges Jonathen was attempting to start the car.”

However, the car was already running, and Garza was banging on the window with his gun and demanding that Santellana roll down the window, according to Marsteller. An eyewitness, Sheila Moreno, states that Garza did not identify himself as a police officer, nor did she say anything about Garza holding a badge.

Garza claims that “he showed his badge and police identification as he opened the door” and “he had the gun and holster in his pocket as he attempted to remove the ignition keys with his right hand, then pulled the gun from the holster, showed the badge, fired 4-5 rounds, without aiming, as the driver’s door moved rearward 10-12 feet, peeling out (Rey Garza’s deposition).”

However, Moreno states that Garza was holding the gun with both hands. Garza’s holster was actually located on the front driver’s side windshield of Jonathen’s car. Marsteller states that Garza said he was a police officer only after Santellana had backed out of the space and began driving away. She also states that Garza did not begin shooting until after the car was moving forward.

Moreno states that she saw the car driving forward when she heard gunshots. She saw Garza walk toward the car and fire an additional 3 to 5 shots. Seven empty bullet casings were found in the middle of the parking lot.

Garza testified that Santellana never threatened him nor did he feel that Santellana was a dangerous person. Yet that did not stop him from recklessly approaching the vehicle with a loaded weapon and firing when Santellana did not obey orders from this large man in gym shorts, who did not initially identify himself as an officer or show a badge. He also put the residents of the apartment complex in danger by shooting at the moving vehicle.

Garza claims that he became pinned between Santellana’s door and the car parked next to him. However, Marsteller states that Garza was never in danger from the door and it did not hit anything. Santellana pushed Marsteller’s head down to protect her from flying bullets, and that is how he got shot in the back of the head.

The Grand Jury Package, submitted to the Free Thought Project by Roxanna Harrison, Santellana’s mother, reads as follows:

“Rey Garza should be indicted for murder, manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, and/or aggravated assault with a deadly weapon as probable cause exists. Garza was not in danger when he shot Jonathen Santellana in the back and back of the head killing him. Like most criminal homicide suspects Rey Garza has come up with an excuse. However, the forensic and credible eyewitness evidence refutes his version on the events. Furthermore, shooting a person for trying to escape a non-violent minor crime is not a defense to homicide or aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

The public and parents of Jonathen Santellana want justice to be done.”

This killer cop is still out on the streets because a grand jury, as is the case in most instances, failed to indict Garza — in spite of the overwhelming evidence against him. Blue privilege is nothing short of a license to kill.

We need the judges and prosecutor’s to be investigated because they are just as guilty when they let these tyrannical, bullying thugs off without even a slap on the wrist. Cops and district attorneys along with judges all wash each others backs. “I was afraid”, it defines their characters and carries ultimate influence with the judicial system. These are cowards with murderous intent. I do not know how a parent not go insane from the utter void of justice….and simply take out the murderer on their own. Actually it’s just one more crime committed by cops left unpunished. Not a surprise, but a long term #BadgePrivilege. They use to feel impunity and the prosecutors help them not to change their attitude.

Beyoncé’s dancers call for justice for Mario Woods at the Super Bowl

During Sunday’s event, Beyoncé’s backup dancers held a sign which read “Justice for Mario Woods,” a 26-year-old African-American who was fatally shot by police in San Francisco on Dec. 2, 2015. Woods’ killing has sparked outrage in the Bay Area, especially after footage of the extreme brutality surfaced.

“Stop Resisting!” yelled cops beating black man who was lying without motion on asphalt

Suspect Derrick A. Price didn’t spit, didn’t kick, didn’t threaten. He knelt and then lay on the pavement, hands outstretched, when arrested by sheriff’s deputies in a community south of Ocala.

Then he was beaten.

“Stop resisting!” at least one deputy called out, as Price reacted to the blows.

Five ex-Marion County deputies now face possible prison terms. As they captured Price, video captured their conduct.

A federal grand jury in Tampa charged the last of the disgraced lawmen late Tuesday, accusing Jesse Alan Terrell, 33, of violating Price’s civil rights. Four of Terrell’s former colleagues had already pleaded guilty to the crime after accepting plea agreements.

Video showed what Marion Sheriff Chris Blair saw before suspending the deputies — without pay — four days after the Aug. 7, 2014, incident.

It captured deputies kneeing, kicking and pummeling a prostrate man, with no sign of resistance, while one sat on his legs. It showed a puddle of blood where his face had rested.

Price suffered facial abrasions, swelling and bruised ribs, but was not hospitalized.

Full story and video

This is how officers arrest black men suspected with possession of drugs. That’s hatred! I hope all these beasts would never work as police officers again. There should be no place for power tripping jerks in police.

A woman with Asperger’s who posted a touching viral video with her service dog last summer has been shot dead by police.

Arizona police officers on Thursday shot Danielle Jacobs, when they arrived at her vicinity around 11 am for an alleged suicide call.

The story is always the same when it comes to police and guns. According to the police, Danielle attacked them with a knife, so in self-defense, they shot her in the stomach. The mother said she wasn’t posing any threat before the police came, and so it wasn’t necessary for a shot.

Last year’s video post, where she sobs as her loving dog Samson provided comfort during a meltdown and used his paws to stop her hitting herself, made Jacobs popularly known by the world.

“This is what having Asperger’s like,” she wrote alongside the clip, and told the Huffington Post, “When I have a meltdown, I often have self-injurious behavior and I often self-harm.”

The video is private, even though three days before her death she posted videos of the canine comforting her during outbreaks of anxiety.

So from what I’m gathering from the information given is: in this day and age, with all the resources afforded our law enforcement, they still choose to shoot rather than using a less lethal way to disarm a mentally distraught woman with a knife. It’s like they were just reinforcing her suicide. She went at them with a knife knowing how they would respond because, she wanted to die. So that’s what happened. She brought a knife to a gun fight. There were other ways to take her down and get her help rather than shooting to kill.

Maryland Police Officer PULLS OUT HIS GUN On A Black Man for not pulling over on the highway!

This video was posted on facebook by a man who was pulled over by the police officer. On the video you can see a black man , who is trying to understand why he was stopped. 

The officer asks him to show his license and registration, yells at him and asks to pull the window down, although it is already down. Man looks so scared and does everything officer asks him to, however he didn’t have his registration and that is when he was asked to get out of the car.

Meanwhile throughout the whole conversation officer is pulling a gun at the man in the car, however , as we see it clearly, he doesn’t pose any threat to the officer. 

The one thing that will get a cop fired

This simple story vividly shows what the police is all about.

Here’s Andrew Fleischman, writing at the excellent Fault Lines blog:

There aren’t many things that can get a police officer fired. A history of incompetence and the reckless killing of a 12 year-old boy, on video, didn’t do it. Choking a man to death in front of a crowd of onlookers, on video, didn’t do it.

But don’t lose hope. There are still some offenses so heinous and wanton that even a police officer can’t avoid consequences. Namely, insubordination.

But not your garden-variety insubordination …

Jay Park was a police officer who worked in Athens, Georgia, a college town built around the University of Georgia. Between prayer breakfasts and abstinence rallies, UGA students are known to occasionally imbibe small amounts of alcohol, presumably filched from communion cups at the local seminary.

Park was called to the scene of a minor suffering alcohol poisoning. His supervisor told him to arrest the student, but Park was aware of one of Georgia’s recent evidence-based laws.

See, since 2014, Georgia lawmakers have decided that it is more important to make sure that underage drinkers receive medical care than punishment. So, under the law, “[a]ny person who in good faith seeks medical assistance for someone who is experiencing an alcohol related overdose shall not be arrested, charged, or prosecuted.”

You also can’t arrest the person suffering the overdose …

So Park knew the law. His supervisor didn’t. But Park’s supervisor ordered him to make an illegal arrest. Park refused. You can probably guess who got fired.

I guess the lesson for Georgia police officers here is that you can shoot unarmed suspects in the back. You can gun down an innocent pastor. You cankill an innocent man in his own home during a botched drug raid. You canblow a hole in a baby’s chest during another botched drug raid. You canrepeatedly abuse inmates after strapping them into a restraint chair. You cango to the wrong house, then shoot an innocent man and kill his dog.

But never, ever embarrass your fellow police officers.

In October, Park settled with the department for $325,000. That settlement included a letter exonerating him of any wrongdoing, which will hopefully help him find another job. The money will come from Georgia taxpayers. Jimmy Williamson is still the chief of the University of Georgia Police Department. In a just world, Jay Park would have his job.

NYPD Cop Wins $15M After Fellow Cops Falsely Arrested & Beat Him at His Daughter’s Birthday

After suing his fellow officers for savagely beating and falsely arresting him at his daughter’s birthday party, an NYPD cop was awarded $15 million by a federal jury on Wednesday. Although he identified himself as an officer, his colleagues viciously struck him with batons and fired pepper spray into his face before bothering to check the badge and ID in his pocket.

On August 22, 2010, NYPD Officer Larry Jackson was off-duty at his daughter’s birthday party in Queens when an unidentified man with a gun appeared in the street breaking a bottle. Although Jackson did not have his gun with him, the off-duty cop confronted the armed man and asked him to leave while Jackson’s wife called 911. As Jackson attempted to calm down the armed man, a crowd of roughly 15 to 20 men armed with bats and sticks began to approach them.

Instead of attacking Jackson or the armed man, the crowd immediately dispersed as a marked patrol car arrived in front of Jackson’s house. Even though Jackson’s wife told dispatchers that her husband was a cop and Jackson immediately identified himself as a fellow officer, the cops ignored him while trying to assess the situation. Hearing an argument from inside Jackson’s home, one of the officers suddenly ran into his house without a search warrant.

After striking one of Jackson’s friends with a police baton, the officer ordered Jackson to step back. Standing his ground, Jackson again identified himself as a cop and informed the officer that they were in his house. Instead of requesting to see Jackson’s police ID or badge, the officer slammed the baton against Jackson’s throat and shoved him into the living room.

While repeatedly punching Jackson in the face, the officer accidentally tripped over a cooler leftover from the birthday party. As Jackson attempted to help the officer up, another cop placed Jackson in a chokehold. Unable to speak, Jackson tried to pull his police ID out of his pocket but another officer restrained his hands.

Falling backwards, Jackson and the cop choking him landed on Jackson’s 82-year-old mother-in-law, briefly knocking her unconscious. As the officer released his chokehold, Jackson again informed the cops that he was an NYPD officer when another cop struck him in the head with an ASP tactical baton. After stumbling down the front steps, Jackson remained on the ground as a group of bloodthirsty officers began beating him with their batons and pepper-spraying him in the face. While placing him in handcuffs, the cops repeatedly kicked his body and kneed him in the back.

Following the brutal assault, the officer who initially attacked Jackson asked him, “Yeah, you motherfucking dirt bag, if you are really a cop, where is your ID?”

“My ID has been in my front pocket the whole entire time,” Jackson responded. “I told you that in the house.”

After finally checking his pockets, the crowd of cops immediately dispersed upon the realization that they just brutalized one of their own without justification. Despite the fact that he had his police ID and did not commit a crime, Jackson was detained at the police station for 20 hours before being transported to a local hospital. According to his medical records, Jackson’s face and torso were covered in large bruises while his right hand was fractured due to numerous baton strikes.

SOURCE

The story shows the lack of trust to black people, the stupidity and recklessness of police and finally the lack of justice. NYPD Officer Larry Jackson got $15 million (!) while families of other victims of police are still fighting for compensations or receiving lower amounts of money. That’s America!

Miami cop hits boy riding scooter — dragging him up to 40 feet beneath patrol car

A Miami police officer struck and badly injured a boy who was riding a scooter in the street.

Witnesses said the officer was speeding when he struck the 6-year-old boy, who was dragged 30 to 40 feet beneath the patrol car, reported WSVN-TV.
“He hit this corner doing 50 (or) 60 mph, bro,” said witness Raymond McNealy. “I saw him get hit, man. He flew, man, he dragged him all the way down there, man — knocked him out of his shoes.”
The child, Antwan Lawson, remained pinned beneath the patrol car until his grandmother, Caridad Velez, pulled him out.
“He was literally stuck under the car, she panicked, so she took him out from under the car,” said witness Ursula Rocha. “When he took his breath, he was bleeding out of his mouth.”
Bystanders tended to the boy until emergency crews arrived about eight minutes after the crash, and he was alert and conscious when he was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Antwan’s mother said he suffered a broken pelvis and leg and a lacerated spleen and liver — but doctors said he was expected to make a full recovery.
“What was he thinking? What was going on at the time? But I feel like it was negligence of the officer,” said the boy’s mother, Janet Martinez. “I want to see some justice. Something has to get done because it doesn’t make sense that these officers are speeding for nothing.”

The name of the negligent officer wasn’t released. Traditionally police blames a victim. I’m sure that Janet Martinez will sue the police and I hope she will succeed. Cops always get away with any kind of misconduct – assault, negligence or wrongful arrest. We should do our best to destroy this situation and create healthy society. Police officers should be the last people to show negligence just due to nature of their service.

Officer Omar Edwards, 25, was chasing a suspected car thief and had his gun drawn, on a spring evening in 2009.

With only a second after the command “Police! Stop! Drop it!” Officer Andrew Dunton from the 25th Precinct opened fire on Edwards, killing him instantly.

Police used the tried and true story that “he turned with the gun towards us” – just as they would say in the case of John Crawford in 2014, even after video evidence proved that never happened.

This standard police justification shows that officers can even use this way out when they have gunned down a fellow officer.

“This is always a black cop’s fear, that he’d be mistaken for a [suspect],” one source said to local reporters after the incident.
