Again, is there not any way to force that release, such as by taking it to a judge?
Is there no way beyond a FOIA request to force that bodycam footage release for either this kid or yours?
Our elders keep on showing up and showing out, and one 89-year-old mother of 12 did just that over the weekend after becoming the oldest graduate to cross the stage at Liberty University’s Commencement in Lynchburg, Va.
I love your writing for more important reasons, but lines like this just add to the fun:
Even an ostensibly “good cop” is a member of a systemically corrupt and discriminatory institution. One that exists primarily to enforce a corrupt and inherently white supremacist power structure.
That you can’t even explain your own bullshit (see step 3) should be a signal to you that this is bullshit.
Statistically, this isn’t stunning to me at all. The cops are implicitly (and in most cases explicitly) biased toward blacks and other PoC. Thus, more innocent black motorists will be stopped... while the hurdle to be pulled over for driving while white is so high, of course the ratio of mayo-criminal activity is…
She’s like definitely the Commander’s wife from Handmaid’s Tale, right?
“I think people forget I’m a real person and these things embarrass and humiliate me, and for my family, I didn’t want them to be part of this,”
She is the Paris Hilton of political punditry. Knows nothing, does nothing, and is there purely as window dressing for the old white men to gawk at while “watching the news”
She should have gone with it when the water hit her and started writhing while screaming, “I’m melting, I’m melting!”
I hear you. I mean, a blog blogging about viral news? And I can see if we don’t nip this ad revenue thing in the bud then everybody will be doing it.
Has there been any progress at all for your son?
stay strong. must be scary for you and your son. filed an IA complaint once and was then harassed for months. it gets harder before it gets easier.
Nope. Not missing anything.
“Then a spokesman for the county later said in a statement that “internal investigations, including those initiated by community complaints, are exempt from FOIA, and it is the department’s practice not to release information related to those investigations as they are personnel matters.” “
Graceful and vicious all at once. This is why I keep coming back to The Root.
But you know what’s really golden? Your page view. So far I have about 6.9 million & yours just pushed Harriot closer to my #1 status. Damn you..but thanks.
Every day. Every. EFFING. Day its something new that’s happened. This is beyond ridiculous. I don’t even really know what else can be said at this point. You can’t be black and do anything without the cops getting involved for no damn reason. :(
