BLACK MAN SHUTS DOWN THE POLICE

YouTube is full of videos where young white men, often times armed, stand up to police and force the officers to back down. With African-Americans, however, the rules are often different and knowing your rights will get you Tasered or worse. One African-American man recorded an encounter with police where he avoided getting arrested or shοt while preserving his rights.

When cops knocked on his door looking for a fugitive, Avel Amarel was determined to record the incident and not allow officers to illegally enter his home, according to a video posted on TheFreeThoughtProject.com.

Police told Amarel that they wanted to search his home because of an incident that occurred in the parking lot, but Amarel told the officers that the person they were looking for was not inside his home and he wasn’t allowing police to enter without a warrant.

Officer, I can’t let you inside without a search warrant,” he says.

Early in the encounter, an officer attempts to get Amarel to stop recording cell phone video, using the excuse that he didn’t know what the object was. Amarel informed the officer that the object in question was a cell phone and continued recording.

Throughout the video, Amarel refuses to let up, asking officers for three forms of identification. The officers never present any ID, but ask Amarel for ID, but he refuses. Amarel asks the officers whether he’s suspected of a crime and when the officers explain again about the fugitive, Amarel tells them that only he and his family are at the home.

When one officer asks for permission to search the home, Amarel tells him to come back with a warrant. Eventually the officers leave in frustration.

I ADORE that this video ends with him saying “playin’ no fuckin’ games in this mothafucka.”

YES, YOU ARE CORRECT. PLAY NO GAMES WITH THE PIGS. THEY WILL ABUSE THE FACT THAT MOST OF US DO NOT KNOW OUR RIGHTS. Oooooo they were caught so off-guard by him demanded ID and knowing for sure that there should be a warrant. 

It’s sad and annoying that we have to do this shit. They tried to get him to turn off the camera like he was doing something wrong, ugh. This is what I want though, we need to know what we can demand by law, just as a start. It helps. Play no games.

Baton Rouge cop resigns after he’s caught texting desire to ‘pull a Ferguson’ on ‘n*ggers’

A police officer in Baton Rouge resigned Thursday after a local news channel revealed that he sent text messages in which he wished that fellow officers “would pull a Ferguson” on a “bunch of monkeys,” The Advocatereports.

Fifteen-year-veteran Michael Elsbury resigned on Thursday after text messages he sent to a female friend were brought to the attention of his superiors. In one message, Officer Elsbury — whose patrol included the area around the historically black Southern University — wrote that blacks are “nothing but a bunch of monkeys,” and that the “only reason they have this job is the nigger, nigger in them.” It is unclear what “job” he is referring to.

In another text, he wrote that “I wish someone would pull a Ferguson on them and take them out. I hate looking at those African monkeys at work…I enjoy arresting those thugs with their saggy pants.”

After WBRZ reported on the text messages, the female friend turned her phone over to police, who spent two days combing through it in order to authenticate the messages. At 6:15 p.m. on Wednesday night, the Baton Rouge Police Department had collected enough evidence to place Officer Elsbury on administrative leave.

On Thursday afternoon, he tendered his resignation.

Police Chief Carl Dabadie said that “it was gut-wrenching to believe that someone had that much hate in them, especially a police officer who is out there enforcing the law every day. It made me sick to my stomach.” Chief Dabadie said that he understands how an incident like this could “cast a bad light” on the entire department, but hopes the community can appreciate the alacrity with which the incident was handled.

“I believe this is an isolated incident that occurred between the officer and this girl,” he said. “I do not want this to become a direct reflection on our officers. I have 650 officers, and 649 of them work their butts off every day for the city of Baton Rouge.”

Some will still believe that cops like these are isolated cases.

HAHAHA HHE GOT CAUGHT IM LAUGHIN SO HARD

I think that the USA needs to move on from September 11th.
Now before all you pseudo-patriots come attempting to sway my opinion with your “unwavering loyalty to the country”, let me just take a minute to explain things. I am an American. I’m a female. And I was a young girl when the events took place.
The events are tragic. I’m not saying that they aren’t. But the US government and the media make it out to be some worldwide catastrophe that claimed the lives of millions of people around the world, when really, the event only killed about 2,600 people, which in the grand scheme of things for a large country like the United States isn’t a huge number.
Also, we’re Americans. Not only are we extremely self-absorbed with our ignorance, fueled by the liberally biased media, we’re hardly sympathetic for our victims. We forced unspeakable violence upon the natives when we came here, we killed almost 150,000 people in dropping the atomic bomb in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and we’ve pointlessly murdered innocent people in the Middle East.
I understand that a lot of people died, and I should be respecting them. But while we honor the dead, we can’t have these extravagant 2-hour TV specials reading the names of all these people who died 12 years after the disaster. You don’t see Japan having these insane specials reading off the names of people who died in their terrorist attacks. Yes, that qualifies as a terrorist attack.
I honestly don’t care anymore. Terrorist attacks happen all the time in other countries every day. Just because this one happened in America doesn’t make it any different. It was a terrible thing that happened, but it’s been 12 years. We killed Osama. Why we are still in Iraq, I will never know, but that’s a story for another time. The USA is comparable to a person who still clings to their ex-spouse or significant other years after they broke up.
We have to move on with our lives. Not forget about it completely, but just move on and keep in it the back of our thoughts.

Finally.
Finally someone says it.
Kudos.

im Canadian and I even felt gulty saying it. but this post is true as fuck.

With that being said, I’m not gonna spend my whole day liking and posting about 9/11

They need you to remember it because they need something to fuel the cultural consciousness’ hatred toward all things vaguely Middle Eastern.  They need that justification so we will look like the victims instead of the exploiters.  It is in their best interest that we hate the Middle East so we can keep demonizing them, othering them, killing them and taking their resources and looking the other way when Israel murders one child every three days.
I guarantee you, the day we are no longer interested in Middle Eastern oil or in annexing Palestinian land for illegal Israeli settlers is the day you will stop seeing “Never Forget” on your screen.
With that said, I still mourn for the thousands of people killed in the Towers.  As I still mourn for the half a million civilians killed in Iraq.  I have never subscribed to or understood the idea that once a certain amount of time has passed, a tragedy is no longer a tragedy.

Remember when the only people who were into to nail art were Asian Black and Latina women and we were all considered tacky ghetto bitches and now that white girls rock nail art it’s now actually considered an ART FORM? Remember that?
