no title

Objection!

America suffered yet another instance of race inequality this week when Terence Crutcher was shot dead by police in Tulsa, Oklahoma — despite being completely innocent of any crime.

The unarmed black man was killed while simply trying to fix his car… but one college professor seems to think Terence's protesters are actually the evil ones in all this.

Freddie Gray's Killers Officially Get Away With It As Prosecutors Drop All Remaining Charges Against Police

Filed under: Legal MattersR.I.P.Sad SadSocial Issues

no title

It really seems like there's no justice in the world sometimes.

Freddie Gray became one of the first high profile victims of the current wave of Police brutality when he was killed in the back of a Police van in Baltimore back in April of 2015 .

The 25-year-old was arrested for allegedly carrying around a switchblade… but was somehow killed due to injuries to his spinal cord before he ever made it to the station.

Of the six officers initially charged with varying degrees of responsibility in the homicide, three had already been acquitted prior to this week… and unfortunately, the three remaining cops just got off as well.

Baltimore Chief Deputy State's Attorney Michael Schatzow made the controversial decision to drop the charges against officers Garrett Miller, Alicia White, and William Porter on Wednesday after seeing how unlikely any convictions would be since Circuit Judge Barry G. Williams had already pardoned officers Edward Nero and Caesar Goodson as well as Lt. Brian Rice through totally not corrupt bench trials.

The medical examiner literally ruled Freddie's death a homicide… yet, once again, none of the people responsible for his murder are being held accountable.

Still think the Black Lives Matter movement is in the wrong??

Rest in peace, Freddie.

This is really powerful.

Police Union President Defends Shooting By Saying Officer Was Actually Trying To Shoot The Autistic Patient, Not His Therapist…

Filed under: Sad SadMental HealthViolenceScary!Viral: NewsControversy

no title

Don't worry, they're not racist… just horrifically incompetent?

In what's just the latest case of Police brutality in America, a 47-year-old black behavioral therapist was shot in North Miami on Monday while trying to protect his mentally challenged patient.

As we previously reported, the 23-year-old with autism had wandered away from his group home, but was found playing with a white toy car in the middle of a street by his caretaker Charles Kinsey.

Unfortunately, Police stumbled upon the pair while responding to a call about an armed man threatening to commit suicide, and proceeded to shoot Charles despite his many attempts to resolve the non-issue non-violently, which included him LAYING DOWN ON THE STREET WITH HIS ARMS UP!

However, Florida authorities are here to clear this whole mess up… because it turns out they didn't mean to shoot Charles in the leg — they were actually aiming for his patient instead!!!

Now that the story has gained national media attention three days after it actually occurred, the North Miami Police Department FINALLY held a press conference on Thursday where Miami-Dade police union president John Rivera tried to defend the trigger-happy cops, saying:

Police Shoot Unarmed Black Therapist For Taking Care Of His Autistic Patient — When Asked Why, Officer Responds 'I Don't Know'

Filed under: Sad SadMental HealthViolenceScary!Viral: NewsControversy

no title

Let's see how the people try to spin this one…

It's no secret racism is alive and well in America — and we're not even talking about the Republican National Convention's intern pic!

No, we're unfortunately talking about YET ANOTHER instance of police shooting an unarmed black man for literally no reason… but this case out of Miami may finally effect some real change.

That's because while Alton Sterling and Philando Castile's deaths were caught on camera, neither were able to share their sides of the story… but luckily, the latest victim of police brutality survived.

47-year-old Charles Kinsey works as a behavior therapist to autistic and other special needs young adults in North Miami, but when a 23-year-old patient wandered away from their group home on Monday, neither probably expected to get shot.

Unfortunately, that's exactly what happened when cops
