He's black. There's no priority greater to a police department than the opportunity to murder a black man with no personal risk to the officers doing the execution.
"We got a call of a robbery that loosely matches the description," replied one of the officers to Sky.
"We are just detaining him, OK? We're not saying he's a suspect, but we are just trying to figure out what's going on. So just try to relax."
"I can tell you, this is the MOST COMMON pretext police use to stop and search Black people," tweeted New York public defenderRebecca Kavanagh. "It is harassment."
You haven't lived if part of your routine w/ starting your car is making sure that anything you'd need if you're pulled over is readily available and in plain sight for any cop that might pull you over to see.Legit had tears watching this.
I can't even comprehend how Americans can live in such climate. I feel unsafe, threatened and insecure as hell watching this, and I am an extremely white woman. I can't even begin to fathom how black people must feel, this is disheartening, this is infuriating, this is beyond sad. How can the USA claim to be a 1st world country when this kind of shit happens on the daily?
I often entertain the idea of moving away from our country with my partner for work purposes, but every time the USA pops up as an option, we both are unanimous about this: hard motherfucking pass. How do you even live and function properly in this country is beyond me. I feel like y'all have to internalize a hell lot of shit as normal and end up thinking they are, while the rest of the world look at you with an horrified look on our faces.
Could be easily solved if it wasn’t for the apathy or hate for black people
No, they’re not. They’re doing exactly what they’re intended to do, this ain’t a mistake.
the pre-text is "the officers had it covered. so for all future reference don't stick your nose into police business. this goes out to every bleeding heart with a cellphone camera. thx."
