Tamir Rice has held a special place in my soul since the day I saw him throwing snow up in the air, watching it crash down in front of him, only minutes before his innocent, precious life would be stolen and abused. As I’ve said, Continue reading Tamir Rice’s Mother Speaks On Police Accountablity & Politicians
I made this video into two parts mainly because my phone messed up the main video 🙂 They both are about facts, statistics an information regarding the police in America’s racist trigger finger, the most dangerous jobs, who should and shouldn’t be cops and why, stats and numbers and most troubling a bit of news regarding both Tamir Rice and Eric Garner.
I’m aiming to have 2 or so more videos up tonight or in the morning…
Ralkina Jones was 1 of 5 women to die in just the month of July 2015 alone. Now we have a 16 year old Black female by the name of Gynnya McMillen – click here to learn the information that we do know.
This originally happened last year, but no story needs to go forgotten or untold. SAY HER NAME! Article Begins:
The death of Ralkina Jones, the 37-year-old woman who was found dead in her Cleveland Heights Police Department jail cell back in July after being arrested two days before, has been ruled accidental by the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office.
The official report lists Jones’ cause of death as sudden cardiac death in association with “postural tachycardia syndrome and obesity with amphetamine therapy.”
Jones, who was arrested July 24 following a dispute with her ex-husband, did mention that she had several medical conditions, including postural tachycardia syndrome, which were documented by officers, and she was reportedy treated. When officers saw that she seemed lethargic the following day, she was taken to a hospital, where she was evaluated and treated, before being returned to the jail. By July 26, however, she was found unresponsive in her cell bed.
Jones was one of at least five black women who died in police custody in July. Her death came a little over a week after Sandra Bland’s jail-cell death in Texas, which prompted questions and suspicions about Bland’s treatment and the treatment of black inmates in general.
