*Well if this don’t beat all! Please join me as I shake my head on this one. It appears that if cops are not beating the crap out of somebody, they are stealing peoples’ possessions.

Gag Me: See What Some Cops Are Saying About Eric Garner’s ‘Chokehold’ Death…It’s Ugly!

Man, chokehold death
Rest in peace, Eric Garner

 

*The death of Eric Garner last week still has emotions running high; and campaigns such as #JusticeForEricGarner have been mobilized to ensure those who caused his unnecessary death will be held accountable. The 43-year-old father of six died on the watch of NYPD officers who jumped on top of him and placed him in a choke-hold as he screamed, “I can’t breathe,” beneath their collective weight.

The whole incident was caught on camera by his friend, Ramsey Orta, who talked with the media recently about what went on behind the video seen by the world. Continue reading

Residents in Obama’s Hometown Call Him, ‘Worst President Ever!’ (Watch)

US-POLITICS-OBAMA-NAACP

*Whoa, it’s really bad when your own hometown hates you. Well, hate may be a strong word, but what do you call what’s just below it? Some black residents on Chicago’s South Side have a serious bone to pick with the president. They came together to protest President Obama’s treatment of immigrants at the expense of those living in urban communities.

“Barack will go down as the worst president ever elected,” said one person. “Bill Clinton was the African-American President.”

Here’s the problem as the protestors see it: They are demonstrating the billions of dollars Obama is requesting to handle the immigration  crisis; and the youth crossing over the border, while ignoring urban cities like Chicago, which is plagued by viοlence and poverty. Continue reading

Petition: Prosecute CHP Officer Caught on Tape Beating A Woman

chp On July 1st, a CHP officer was caught on camera beating a woman off the 10 freeway in Southern California. The officer had already pinned the woman to the ground, and then proceeded to viciously punch her more than 11 times in the head.

The violence was unjustified. If this had been an incident between civilians, the assailant would have been charged with assault. Peace officers should be held to higher standards, not less, so the officer should be held criminally accountable. Continue reading

‘Locked In NOT Locked Out’ Inspired By Daddy-Daughter Dance In Virginia Prison (Watch)

dads and daughters

*This may not be a new story, but it is still a relevant one.

As we all know, being incarcerated affects more than the person doing time, it affects entire families, and sometimes, entire communities.

But the bottom line is: it’s the kids who always suffer the most.

So when Angela Patton, Founder and Director of CAMP DIVA, spoke to a group of girls about their relationships with their fathers, it was clear that the topic struck a chord. Many of the girls needed a way to connect with fathers who were no longer in the picture for a myriad of reasons that included deceased dads, divorced dads, and incarcerated dads.

So, these young, bright minds, came up with a solution to invite daddy into their lives and the result was a real tearjerker.

*Some would argue that it definitely pays to be a white man – even a deeply tanned one, at times like this.

It is exactly in these times that we see just how lopsided “the system” remains when it comes to equal justice for all.

By no stretch of the imagination, this may be the most perfect example of how, if the tables were turned and the guilty party was a black man, you could bet your next breath he would have gotten a prison sentence.

In this story, however, a former public works inspector for a small town in northern New Jersey actually admitted that over a two year period he actually stole $460,000 in quarters that had been collected from the city’s parking meters .

And the judge decided he doesn’t have to go to prison for it.

Instead, Superior Court Judge Patrick Roma has given him five years of probation.

Idiot Alert: Sarah Palin Gets A Platform And Calls For Obama’s Impeachment

sarah-palin

*Nothing like a platform eh? And guess who is stepping up to the podium with pen in hand?

Sarah Palin.

And her first order of business? To call for president Barack Obama‘s impeachment.

Palin has accused the president of  “purposeful dereliction of duty,” in a column published on Breitbart.com today. She uses the metaphor of an abusive spouse to describe Obama’s treatment of the United States.

“Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president,” Palin, the former governor of Alaska and 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate, wrote. “His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ‘no mas.’”

Suggesting purposeful and deliberate intent, Palin suggests that the president left the U.S.-Mexico border unsecured intentionally, echoing a similar stance held by Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) earlier this week.

“Without borders, there is no nation,” Palin wrote. “Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America. It’s the only promise he has kept.”

Obama requested $3.7 billion from Congress on Tuesday to address the situation at the border. The funds are to be used to  improve security at the border and provide care for children who have come into the Department of Health and Human Services’ system.

Palin, who last year suggested that Obama could be impeached over the debt limit, argued in the Tuesday column that Obama’s “rewarding of lawlessness” had caused “irreparable harm.”

“It’s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment,” Palin wrote. “The many impeachable offenses of Barack Obama can no longer be ignored. If after all this he’s not impeachable, then no one is.”

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who ran for president in 2008 with Palin as his running mate, seemed unusually tame about Palin’s actions.

“I always respect other people’s opinions,” McCain told The Huffington Post during a hallway interview at the Capitol.

The Arizona senator said he hadn’t read Palin’s column yet and hedged on making any judgments about it before reading it. Still, he distanced himself from her stance.

“Am I proposing that the president be impeached? No,” he said.

This post has been updated to include McCain’s remarks.
