I am happy to say Tony has been…set semi free from the illegitimate, wrongful capture of a then father to be (he was unable to witness the birth of his only son). As if that moment stolen were not painful enough, he lost his beautiful and loving mother to stage 4 cancer while wrongfully locked up, with no hearings, no trial dates, a bond of $900,000.00…
Why? What happened? Why does *he* matter so much?
And, what is his status now?
The video below explains…I know it’s a bit lengthy, but this is very important; it is a man who has fought for other people life I am trying to update everyone on… So please excuse length…
And, the link I refer to also will explain anything you may have to ask also. Make sure you share that link; we need to raise funds to help this man…
Feel free to ask me anything, and I will try to get it answered.
From his site:
“UPDATE: The crowdfund has been lowered from $10,000.00 to $7,500.00 because Tony’s fiance sold his motorcycle for $2500.00.
Aren’t the Philadelphia Police and Prosecutors Just Doing Their Job? They Are Not Corrupt…. Are they?
New York City Police Staff Sgt. Jimmy McNaughton died while serving in the
military and the story I just read of his family and other NYC cops complaining because the did not get their way has pissed me off. I will explain a bit below but first, the ultimate and main point of my posting this as well as my video rant is because of the double standards cops hold…
What makes me the most angry, I think, is as you can read in the link that follows, his co-worker states,
“Jimmy’s a hero. He’s our hero. And generations of future police officers who entered the subway to go to work at Transit District 2 would know that his fellow officers did not forget him,” Kenny said.
… He is not my hero, and if we are going to be renaming streets after people who were stolen from the world too soon the first names should be of those whom were unjustly and out of racist hatred murdered. Those are the lives we need to remember. And I am sorry people think I am being too harsh but I am fed up with police getting away with any and all things as people bitch about how hard the legal killers have it… This is in my opinion a slap in the face to any and all who have lost their lives just by being !
No I know nothing of this cops personal history. That is not the point though I do address in the video.
So what happened for those wanting to know, in short:
His family almost 300 police officers in NYC are angry because their proposal to have a street named after him was denied, the father going so far as to state he believes they are cop haters… Right… He also demanded to know the real reason the denied the request… The reason? NYC signs have too many damn signs on street poles as it is!
Though this devastating reality is a reality for far too many immigrants, sometimes being reminded via things such as the following help keep those not impacted by it reminded that it is not a topic that has gone away and is in need of our attention now more than ever. As obvious as this may be, it is a sad but needed reminder for too many… Please take the time to read and share… Link to original post and more info is in link at bottom.
HOUSTON — Within hours of being booked at a Border Patrol station in far West Texas, two teenage sisters from Guatemala came forward to allege that an agent conducted an improper strip search.
The agent in question denied the allegations, including the sisters’ claims that he touched their genitals. He insisted he had only fingerprinted the sisters before taking them back to their cell.
Investigating the case came down to the sisters’ word versus the agent’s. And as in dozens of similar cases, government investigators sided with the agent.
Advocates say the case — outlined in a report compiled by internal investigators — shows the kinds of hurdles detained immigrants face when they make claims of misconduct, even when they come forward immediately, as the sisters did.
“These women were actually, for lack of a better word, lucky that their case was investigated,” said Christina Mansfield, co-founder of the advocacy group Freedom for Immigrants. “They are in the extreme minority in that regard.”
The sisters, ages 17 and 19, entered the U.S. without legal permission in July 2016, several days after leaving their home village in Guatemala. They were detained by Border Patrol agents shortly after crossing the border.
The Associated Press received a redacted copy of the investigative report through the Freedom of Information Act. It shows that investigators determined that the sisters’ allegations could not be substantiated due to a lack of physical evidence.
The station where the sisters were detained did not have cameras in the booking area. The room where the sisters say they were taken, later described as a supply room or a closet, wasn’t processed for fingerprints because the sisters said they didn’t touch anything. And the agent in question said he was alone with the sisters due to manpower shortages, the report says.
Immigration advocates say the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General, which reviewed the sisters’ case, rarely recommends action against officers. A study by Freedom for Immigrants found that between January 2010 and July 2016, the inspector general received 84 complaints of coerced sexual contact against U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which includes Border Patrol. The inspector general opened just seven investigations, none of which are known to have led to charges, according to the study, which was conducted by examining government records.
The study found a similarly low number of cases were investigated by the inspector general for detention facilities operated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
CBP would not directly address the sisters’ case or whether it disciplined the agent involved. The agency said it was committed to treating detainees with “professionalism and courtesy.”
Immigration authorities detain and process thousands of people every month who cross the U.S. border without permission. Border Patrol chief Carla Provost said in a recent interview that her agency takes any allegations against any of its 19,000 agents “very, very seriously.” Provost previously led CBP’s internal affairs division, which also investigates allegations of employee wrongdoing and that the agency has taken steps to strengthen in recent years.
“They are very few and far between,” she said, speaking generally about misconduct complaints.
The sisters were taken by agents to the Presidio Border Patrol station and booked into the same holding cell. The agents who detained them went out on another call.
According to the report, a third agent then took the elder sister out of the cell. He told investigators that he processed and fingerprinted each of them before returning them to their cell.
The elder sister told a different story. She said the agent took her into a back room that had a table filled with snacks and drinks. There, she says, the agent told her to lift her sweater and dress. The woman said that after a small photograph fell out of her bra, the agent pulled up her bra. Then, she said, he told her to remove her pants and underwear, then touched her genitals with the outer part of his hand.
The younger sister would accuse the agent of conducting a similar search.
Border Patrol guidelines prohibit male agents to strip-search female detainees “except in exigent circumstances,” and only then with another agent present to observe. Under the guidelines, a vaginal cavity search must be done by a medical professional at a medical facility.
When the agent later heard one of the sisters accusing him of misconduct, the report says, he “became upset and told the girl he didn’t make her do that.”
According to the investigators’ report, one agent said that “this is exactly the reason cameras are needed in the processing area.”
The accused agent would speak to investigators three times. The last time, an investigator noted the agent “appeared to be nervous and removed,” and he “had to constantly review a prepared statement” from his initial interview. But a month after the last interview, investigators took their case to a federal prosecutor, James Miller, who agreed with their conclusion that there was a “lack of evidence.”
Miller declined to comment on why he didn’t pursue a prosecution. The agent did not return phone messages from The Associated Press, nor did his attorney, Raymond Martinez.
The sisters were eventually released and went to live with their mother in California. One of the sisters has since sued the U.S. government. Court filings show both sides are now discussing a settlement.
The other day I made a video regarding a documentary I was watching. The documentary was about racism and segregation in America; as well we the punishment placed upon the Black community when the government(s) finally “desegregated” –
Teachers, who had been more than such prior but also almost like mothers to their students, were ripped of their jobs. Cultural values and teachings began to fade for Black students as they were plunged in head first to history lessons that involved only white heroes, where the people who built this country with -no payment but a lot; far too much; suffering- never went paid for or acknowledged.
The passion the women in this video had for going to school is astonishing to me. Now a days you can’t get kids to go to school or value education even if you try with all you have. The connection is clear, but I want to explore it more.
But before that; here is last nights video. I hope you are all well!
“The person said Nike will feature Kaepernick on several platforms, including billboards, television commercials and online ads. Nike also will create an apparel line for Kaepernick, including a signature shoe, and contribute to his Know Your Rights charity. The deal puts Kaepernick in the top bracket of NFL players with Nike.”
And let us not forget, Nike provides all NFL teams with both game day wear and other apparel, such as sideline wear. The partnership between the two was extended in March to run through 2028.
I think it’s both very depressing how heartless, selfish and mindless people are outraged at people who want to draw attention to an on going evil, especially to this degree. I would say it is almost funny but…it’s not funny at all, really. It’s tragic and the racism in this country that is tolerated -by the government alone- leads me to think about what the beautiful soul of Malcolm X said about civil rights vs human rights. Perhaps it is time to begin reaching for what he spoke of and was working on; appealing to the international community for assistance… Things since he was working for justice and equality have only grown more complex, but I also think in some ways we have an upper hand now.
But I digress. Back to those of you mad at Nike and Kaepernick for doing the right thing.
It’s so funny how many people are hating on Nike now; such as in Denver one store is “clearing out” their Nike stock in, and I quote, “protest.” Yeah. Nike’s losing a lot of sleep over having a clear conscience.
If you are going to protest, make it something worth while like, oh, I don’t know, protesting innocent men, women and children being murdered or beaten, seems like a nice and moral place to start. That and/or demanding these killers do not walk free. Refusing to accept them being treated as innocent the entire trial IF it makes it that far. Paid vacations for killers… All because they protect you and you have no reason to fear them? Hmmm… what about those they don’t serve OR protect?
People are outraged over the display Kaepernick in particular is making. Why should I respect a government or the traditions held by many american’s when this country, the law enforcement here, they don’t give a damn about what they do to others. The good hearted will speak out, and get fired. Is this really an american tradition I want to follow? Hell no. How can any of you really think this “american tradition” is more outrageous than humane treatment, equality and justice?
Police vow to “serve and protect”— wait, I’ll say it this way as it reminds me of a post I came across earlier. Some guy was complaining about all the negativity towards cops. He said something like, “meanwhile, the police save thousands a day and no one pays attention” or something. So I replied, in part, with what I reply to this, “it’s disrespecting the national anthem and the american tradition,” BS:
“And meanwhile, not happening in any legal jurisdiction but once a year, police officer kills and is actually punished for his crime. being sworn to protect the people, not slaughter them, one murder by a cop should carry a heavy sentence unless he can prove he was not to blame. police in america can be caught on camera killing and walk away with nothing. or go buy and sell the gun they used to kill an unarmed human with. police are never in the wrong in america, except with people who want justice…and that doesn’t happen. so stop whining as though you really have it bad.try being a fishermen. they die more often than police while working as do others. and defending is different from what police do. the few i have seen do good were fired. real just system. “
Point of that comment post is… 1) all the players who haven’t or don’t join in protest against a wrong that has been done in one form or another; under one name or another, for hundreds of years, every last one of them should feel a great deal of shame for not being man enough to do what they could… If all players protested even just in the NFL, think of how things would change… Money forces change. But money also made some too damn blind; or perhaps they already were.
Either way, no real man would just look away, letting victims of the inhumane, unethical and on going homicides continue to be targets. Moreover, they are saying it is acceptable behavior to NOT punish those who abuse and/or murder if they have a blue shield in front of them. It’s okay, they are saying, to not have law enforcement not report to the FBI annually the number of people who have lost their lives.
I am so grateful Nike has made the choices they have… They have selected NFL opening night as the night to air the first “Just Do It” commercial with Mr. Colin Kaepernick and others. Apparently Nike, as the following article describes, has always pushed for athletes to strive for more. Their actions give me reason to believe that rich as Nike as a company and such may be, they thus far are proving they actually are on the side of justice.
That being said, I’ll end my rant here and let you read on about the latest with Nike and Kaepernick. I hope others will come through… And that includes anyone reading this as well as myself… Be a hero, regardless of how popular or unpopular you are… Every good and every bad action matters. Do the right thing even if those around you are not…
Nike has unveiled its first “Just Do It” ad narrated by Colin Kaepernick, and a person familiar with the situation says the spot is scheduled to air during the NFL season opener on Thursday night and during football games throughout the season. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the airing have…
This shows just how little the homeless matter; more over, to all you ‘patriots’. this is a huge slap to the face for if veterans truly mattered to you as much as they should and as much as so many people claim, there would be national outrage that this psycho is only getting a year (who wants to bet he is out before a year?)
Had these people not been homeless this case would be taken a lot more seriously by the courts and the people. Add fighting for the rights of homeless to the list of things I’ll be researching and writing about from here on out.
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A former case worker at an East Bay nonprofit organization has been sentenced in U.S. District Court to one year in prison for stealing $26,300 in federal funds intended to aid homeless veterans with short-term housing. William Andrews, 50, of Windsor, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge James Donato in…
Let met start out with this: I have not been able to write or make videos lately, more so than usual… While this will change in the future, once life settles down a bit, the research and work I am doing now will aid in the fight against these racist, hate filled terrorist organizations…
At the very least, I come armed with truth and knowledge that is in fact extremely and abundantly obvious to those who truly seek wisdom; to those with even a careless soul in them. It takes a special sort of evil to even entertain the idea of removing these hate-filled racists; these true terrorists, from the federal effort to study and neutralize extreme nationalization. And everyone who has any decency within need be preparing and arming with knowledge, and sharing that knowledge. So, I shall. Starting back up with the following…………………
I write this in rage; rage and shock at the silence surrounding these blatant evil, racist pigs in office and their avid supporters. I am going to begin and end my post with the quote you will hear in more detail when you press play below. It is a quote in response to the Trump administration; this quote in particular being from the founder of some neo-nazi site called The Daily Stormer. I am more than outraged; more than ready for seeing these psychopaths be overrun.
And if the following doesn’t make your blood boil, I have to let you know… you are just as sadistic as the racist “Alt Right” as they want to be called, but more accurately known as America’s domestic terrorists; the white nationalists. Ironically, from the start of their jealous hate, these white “supremacists” have yet to be superior to anything.
I am MORE THAN sickened, and infuriated!!!!!! with the audacity of this psychopath to remove these evil, soulless, racist white criminals is absolutely asinine and outrageous. What’s equally as preposterous is the lack of attention all of this is receiving. Let me make this clear: I am aware these shells of people existed prior Trump getting into office…but they were, to some degree, ashamed or at least they understood to stay in THEIR place and pretend to be human. With Trump in office, what do these psychos have to lose?
That being said; if you are not against what Trump is doing for his people, proudly evil, white terrorists, then you are no better than them. Period.
Moving on to the point. Here is part of one response to Trump’s racist action. These white racists (who murder, promote superiority, hate, death, etc) are no longer extremists, despite the fact that all domestic terrorist attacks and terrorists in America have been and are white; while people with a conscious, a soul, are murdered down by slave patrols or locked away as political prisoners for wanting equal treatment.
Hell, in too many cases this means dying for simply wanting to have the equal right of doing something as simple as eat skittles or hold a pokemon card without being murdered by one of the so called “protectors of peace”………..
The video has actual facts and the history behind what is going on, has been going on, and more. Please watch… It goes without saying, then, their hate organizations and their ‘people’ are celebrating in their natural hate and menace:
“Donald Trump wants to remove us from undue federal scrutiny by removing white supremacists from the definition of extremism……. Yes, DONALD TRUMP IS SETTING US FREE.
THIS IS ABSOLUTELY A SIGNAL OF FAVOR TO US. We may truly under estimated Trump’s covert support of our cause, but after this proposal I am fully ready to offer myself in service to this glorious regime.
Amazingly, my government no longer treats me as an enemy. It’s now officially understood at one of the highest levels, that we are so much better than the kidnapper, terrorist, pedophile left.” – Founder of Neo-Nazi Daily Stormer
I end this here….Watch the video. Educate. They will NOT rise. Make sure you are a part of educating the people if nothing else. And again, for more information, I truly urge and plead with you to take a few minutes and make sure you are aware of yet another evil going on; thanks to the extremists in office.
Please; get involved… Edcuate yourself; educate others, at the very, very least… Fuck every last racist, white psychopath and their delusional thoughts of superiority; what a DISGUSTING and SAD JOKE they are!
