Know Anyone Who Thinks Racial Profiling Is Exaggerated? Watch This, And Tell Me When Your Jaw Drops.


This video clearly demonstrates how racist America is as a country and how far we have to go to become a country that is civilized and actually values equal justice. We must not rest until this goal is achieved. I do not want my great grandchildren to live in a country like we have today. I wish for them to live in a country where differences of race and culture are not ignored but valued as a part of what makes America great.

What Donald Trump Got Wrong on Stop-and-Frisk - The New York Times

"Donald J. Trump attributed a nonexistent increase in murder to actions that never happened, namely, the ending of the stop-and-frisk practice by, variously, “a judge, who was a very against-police judge,” and the “current mayor.”



This was multilayered fiction.



Murder declined. A judge did not end stop-and-frisk. Neither did the current mayor.



In fact, the Police Department began to drastically curtail its use in 2012, under the administration of Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, an independent. This is well documented but only lightly noticed. On July 9, 2012, an editorial in The New York Post warned that the reduction in its use would lead to “more blood in the street.”



By the way, did more blood run in the street?



No, less blood did.



Murder is down 32 percent since 2011, the last year of the old stop-and-frisk era, having dropped to 352 homicides in 2015 from 515 in 2011."

Cop Who Choked Garner Earning More Money Than Ever

"The cop who was filmed putting Eric Garner in a fatal choke hold has been doing pretty well for himself recently. In the two years since Daniel Pantaleo was placed on desk duty over his role in the incident, the NYPD officer has earned significantly more money than he did prior to the incident.


Politico reports that during the 2014 fiscal year, before Garner died, Pantaleo made $99,915, including $17,189 in overtime pay. He appears to have gotten some kind of raise in 2015: “In that 12-month period, ending June 30, 2015, Pantaleo earned $105,061, with $76,488 base pay, $17,109 in overtime and $11,673 in additional earnings, records show.” It was even better in 2016:



Pantaleo earned $119,996 in fiscal year 2016, which includes earnings between July 1, 2015 and June 30, 2016. His base pay was $78,026 and he earned $23,220 in overtime, according to a review of payroll records. He received an additional $12,853 in unspecified pay, which could include retroactive pay or bonuses.

As Politico notes, that’s a 14 percent increase in overall compensation — and a 35 percent increase in overtime — compared to 2015.



When asked about the upward trend in Pantaleo’s earnings, an NYPD spokesperson said only, “At times, officers are required to work beyond their scheduled tour of duty. This includes officers on modified assignment.” Pantaleo avoided criminal charges in Garner’s death, setting off widespread protests. He remains the subject of a federal civil-rights investigation."

Obamacare Has Increased Insurance Coverage Everywhere | FiveThirtyEight

"When congressional candidates last hit the campaign trail in 2014, one word seemed to be at the top of the agenda for virtually every Republican: Obamacare. But that was before most of the law’s provisions took effect. Two years later, the health law seems to have faded as a campaign issue.



New data released this month might give a hint as to why: The uninsured rate — the share of the population without health insurance — dropped in every congressional district in the country between 2013 and 2015, according to the American Community Survey."

Tulsa Officer Betty Shelby Charged in Terence Crutcher Death - The Daily Beast






"Tulsa County’s district attorney announced Thursday that charges have been filed against Betty Shelby, the police officer who shot and killed Terence Crutcher last Friday afternoon. Steve Kunzweiler said in a press conference that the county will charge Shelby with first-degree manslaughter for the 40-year-old unarmed black man’s death. Dashcam and helicopter footage showed Crutcher with his hands up in the air before Shelby fired at him, but the officer claimed that he was non-compliant, that she felt “threatened” by him, and that she suspected him of being high on PCP. In filing the charges, the district attorney’s office wrote that Officer Shelby “acted unreasonably by escalating the situation” while Crutcher attempted to surrender."

Charlotte Police Shooting Video Not ‘Definitive,’ Chief Says - The New York Times

With the city staggered by two nights of violent protests after the fatal police shooting of a black man, the Charlotte, N.C., police chief said on Thursday that a video of the episode did not definitively show the victim, Keith L. Scott, pointing a gun.



The chief, Kerr Putney of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police, said that while he had no plans to release the video of the shooting to the public, he did intend to show it to Mr. Scott’s family, at their request.
