A police officer in Georgia admits to kicking an African-American woman in the stomach while she was 9 months pregnant. No charges were filed against the officer.

Raven Dozier was 9 months pregnant when Dekalb County police officer Jared Wheeler kicked her in the stomach with his boots. She was forced to get a c-section. Thankfully, the baby survived. In an “internal investigation” Dekalb County police found that officer Wheeler did nothing wrong and followed police procedure.

And he’s completely unapologetic about it as well and no justice was served. People need to realize that police brutality is literally a daily reality for black people and that it affects black women as well.

For all the protesters out there:

If you aren’t aware, cops love to destroy the phones of people who record them. 

So next time you’re in a situation where you are recording an officer and fear for the safety of your video evidence, try using the Bambuser app.

It uploads your video online to your Bambuser account while you record it. You can also stream the video live. This way your videos are saved online, safe from the hands of the uniformed pigs.

So this is what trust looks like.

Funny, my first thought was “So this is what the patriarchy looks like.”

Yup. This is how women are supposed to trust men. With their lives.

Woman : “Hey, can we just… Drop the bow?”Man : “WHY DON’T YOU TRUST ME I’M NOT A VIOLENT GUY, YOU ARE INSULTING ME THINKING I WILL HURT YOU!!!”Woman : “No it’s just… Well I’m afraid.”Man : “But why? Look at me, I’m not afraid. And we’re equal, look, we pull the bow together.”Woman : “I think we’re not equal, you can kill me with the arrow and I can’t.”Man : “What? So you would like to be able to kill me? You’re so agressive!”Woman : “That’s not what I mean, we were talking about equality : you can hurt me, I can’t.”Man : “Of course you can. You can hit me with the bow if you want.”Woman : “That’s not the same thing, it will never kill you.”Man : “Oh, you always complaining, stop victimising yourself! Do I talk about the difficulty of holding the arrow? Of the responsibility it giving to me?”[…]Etc, etc.Every debates about gender equality, ladies and gentleman.


omg the comments.  Brilliant.

Rudy Giuliani’s daughter arrested for shoplifting and is labelled ‘rebellious;’

Winona Ryder caught on camera shoplifting and found not-guilty.

Mike Brown ‘allegedly’ steals $.50 swisher and is executed for ‘robbery.’ 

Important.

In addition to that, the officer who murdered Michael Brown did not shoot him because of the alleged robbery and in fact did not even know he was a robbery suspect, which still raises the question.. why did he shoot an unarmed teenager in the back 9-10 times, despite the fact that the teenager had his hands up. 

According to that first article, because he was “walking down the middle of the street blocking traffic”…. 

ALSO HE DIDNT EVEN STEAL IT

THAT WASNT HIM IN THE VIDEO THAT WAS A DIFFERENT DUDE IN A WHOLE DIFFERENT OUTFIT

MICHAEL BROWN WOULD NOT HAVE HAD TIME TO A. STEAL THE CIGARETTE, B. CHANGE CLOTHES AND C. GET ALL THE WAY ACROSS TOWN IN THE FUCKING (6minutes? Check my sources.) BETWEEN THE ROBBERY AND THE MURDER

THATS ANOTHER LIE BEING SPREAD THIS DUDE WAS FUCKING MURDERED FOR NO REASON

AND PS THIS CELEBRATING IN THE STREETS AND SELFIES WITH COPS GOING ON IS BULLSHIT

WHAT A TRANSPARENT, CHEAP ATTEMPT AT MOLLIFICATION

THE REAL PROBLEM HAS NOT BEEN SOLVED DO NOT BE FOOLED AND DO NOT BE CALM

DO NOT REQUEST CHANGE, DEMAND IT!!!!
