What To Do When You're Stopped By Police - The ACLU & Elon James White

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.

Marissa Alexander prosecutor risks ‘bully’ image in ‘errands’ arrest | theGrio

"But we are coming very close to the point when the word “bullying” might be applicable in the case of Marissa Alexander.

The 33-year-old Florida mother of three was released November 27th on $150,000 bond, after a judge threw out her conviction on three counts of aggravated assault with a firearm for firing a gun over the head of her husband, who she claimed threatened her, while his two sons were present in the room. The judge ruled that the jury was given improper instructions during the trial.

Alexander initially claimed self-defense under Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” statute, but a judge threw out that claim. She was quickly convicted by a jury, and sentenced to a mandatory 20-year prison sentence under Florida’s 10-20-Life law.

The prosecutor in the case, Angela Corey, has been vigorous in pursuing and defending the conviction, and Alexander faces a retrial this spring." 

This glaring example of the continuing American racial injustice system continues. We must raise the decision costs for America.  They must pay a price for their injustice.
