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.

“Israeli joy for a hostage rescue contrasts a weekend of death in Gaza

Many Israelis were feeling a bright spot of joy after the return of four hostages. But as they cheered this weekend, Gazans picked up after the bloody Israeli raid to retrieve the hostages. The death toll from the Israeli raid on the Nuseirat refugee camp was about 274 Palestinians, Gaza’s Health Ministry said Sunday. Benny Gantz, a member of Israel’s war cabinet, said he would hold a news conference Sunday evening after delaying a potential resignation announcement.
Here’s what to know
• It was not clear whether Gantz will resign. Gantz’s departure could complicate the leadership of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is already straining to hold together his government. Gantz had been scheduled to hold a news conference on Saturday about potentially leaving the government but delayed it after the hostage rescue. He will now give a statement at 8 p.m. local time Sunday, his office said.
• The rescued hostages — Noa Argamani, 26; Almog Meir Jan, 22; Andrey Kozlov, 27; and Shlomi Ziv, 41 — “are in good medical condition” and were transferred to a hospital for examinations, the Israel Defense Forces said. They were taken hostage from the Nova music festival during the Hamas attacks on Oct. 7.
• White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan said in a CBS interview Sunday that “the most effective, certain and right way” to release the remaining Israeli hostages is for Hamas to immediately accept the U.S.-backed proposal for a cease-fire.
• At least ​​37,084 people have been killed and 84,494 injured in Gaza since the war started, according to the Gaza Health Ministry, which does not distinguish between civilians and combatants but says the majority of the dead are women and children.
• Israel estimates that about 1,200 people were killed in Hamas’s Oct. 7 attack, including more than 300 soldiers. Its military says 294 soldiers have been killed since the launch of its military operations in Gaza.

Geut Elgrabli, sister of freed Israeli hostage Almog Meir Jan, said her brother is doing well and watched Al Jazeera TV in captivity. “Keep doing what you’re doing at the rallies on Saturday night,” Elgrabli added, referring to demonstrations calling for the release of hostages and a cease-fire. Some hostages watched them, she said — “which gives them strength. Almog asked me to say this.”

UNICEF’s supply shipments to Gaza were looted less frequently last week, the aid organization’s spokesman Ricardo Pires said.
Of the 19 supply trucks UNICEF took through the Karem Shalom border checkpoint early last week, four were looted and the rest reached a Gaza Strip warehouse, Pires said.
Fuel deliveries through Karem Shalom every two days, bringing 392,000 liters each round. But humanitarian aid can’t keep up with growing desperation.

​10:27 a.m.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that Danny Danon is set to return to his role as the Israeli ambassador to the United Nations.
Netanyahu removed Danon from his post as deputy minister of defense in 2014 after Danon said the prime minister wasn’t doing enough to fight Hamas, the Times of Israel reported at the time.
He then served for five years as Israel’s U.N. representative.

​10:20 a.m.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) told Fox News on Sunday that he was “dismayed” by criticism of Israel’s operation to recover four hostages “at the cost of supposedly 200 Palestinians.”
Cotton criticized information from Health Ministry officials in Gaza, which has been so dangerous that journalists have been unable to verify deaths.
“But my advice to them [Gazan officials] would be: If you don’t want your people killed in hostage rescue missions, then you shouldn’t take hostages in the first place and you should release them once you have and you certainly shouldn’t hide them in civilian areas.”
