URGENT:Amazing Black Mother Savagely Beaten, Living in Torment; We Need to Help Her Demand Justice! PLEASE WATCH

UPDATE & URGENT ATTENTION NEEDED FOR ANTWYNETTE HOUSTON! PLEASE VIEW!

Black Female Police Brutality Survivor needs 3rd Surgery Cleveland Black Lives Matter

 

First is my plea to ALL ACTIVISTS. WHAT IF SHE WERE YOUR MOM?! SISTER, WIFE??…. NO ONE IS STEPPING UP; SHE IS SUFFERING AND CARRYING IT ALL; PLEASE LET’S ORGANIZE AND HELP HER OBTAIN WHAT IS RIGHTFULLY HERS SO SHE AND HER SON CAN HEAL AND MOVE ON!

please.
As I say, BLACK LIVES MATTER, and so does Antwynette Houston and her little boy. After suffering brutal assault, after a funeral and as her 9 yr old watches from the car, she is left with her shoulder so shattered (is the best way I know to describe it) and what’s more; she is left to deal with it along with everything else on her own while the abusive, sadistic officer wanders around freely. WE NEED YOUR HELP; IF YOU CAN ORGANIZE CHICAGO PLEASE, PLEASE HEAR ME OUT!

Video I just made, or skip below:

Antwynette lives in tremendous pain from being a mother and worrying to physical and trauma and of course, due to the expensive surgery (SHE STILL NEEDS ONE MORE BUT HAS NO FUNDS! I’ve got her gofundme at the bottom along with her paypal) she has the constant threat of being without a home each month. This strong woman is holding up the world and I do wish we as activists against racism and police abuse could help every person in need, I know that’s a lot easier said than done.

I’m not asking for that. I‘m asking, pleading and begging with those who organize protests and accomplish so much via them to please, rally up and help boycott the Kentucky Derby so her state and local government will realize we are NOT going to take racism, hate, police violence and disrespect -to say the least- towards women!

PLEASE SHARE… We *CAN* DO THIS! Imagine if this were your mother or sister or wife??? She is the best mom in the world; she is raising a brilliant little boy and she is doing it all with love and care for him. It’s beyond time something good happens to her, please, help me help her or simply help her; either way… please don’t ignore this…..

It’s sad that we have to ask and engage in protests and boycotts just so this horrible government and the law enforcement ‘officials’ will give the victim the justice and/or health care/financial comp/etc not only deserved but what any human with a good soul would want to happen for her and her 9 year old child without her having to take any more action.

She doesn’t have the money to obtain the surgeries she needs from the horrifically broken shoulder this off duty officer shattered; after her last expensive surgery (off borrowed money) she now is forced to live with homelessness as a possibility every month… Beyond that it gets no better. Antwynette lives in horrible, excruciating pain while longing to get back to living her life as her and her child were… As she struggles with these traumas, she continues raising her brilliant son with the most love any child could need; I wish I could have had a mother like her; he is blessed and I know her strength and love will be the foundation of his healing.

I don’t have kids but I love them; I can only imagine how Antwynette feels as she tries to hold up all that’s going on around her, waiting for the day when perhaps justice of any sort will be given so she can heal physically and emotionally!

So many mothers suffer and worry…and hurt over the pain of their child. He didn’t deserve this; she sure as hell didn’t deserve this- and we as the people, the people who KNOW the truth and KNOW we can make a difference must stand up for victims… ALL victims; and we can! Spread knowledge if nothing else, please…. If we unite and get out and make it so no one can say they haven’t heard about this atrocity, then perhaps things will move along a bit faster.

In Chicago and all over we’ve managed to unite and protest. This strong Black mother along side her precious and intelligent little boy will survive and get through this; I know it- we cannot settle for anything less; we won’t!

But what about the RIGHT NOW? … Do people not know? Do you not care? Feel you can’t contribute or… why are YOU inactive towards this cause?

Antwynette writes:
“For nearly 3 years I’ve endured severe pain, been unable to work and facing potential homelessness on a monthly bases. I continue to wait for the city of Louisville to pay for damages in which they have acknowledged responsibility.

My encounter with the Louisville Metro Police Department revealed several problems for citizens if they are physically harmed or left permanently injured by police personnel. Despite whether you are innocent of any charges or wrong doing, you will be left responsible for the cost of any and all medical bills resulting from your encounter with police until they feel like paying.
————–
I found out around August 2014, a whole year later, that I needed another surgery and that my injuries were more severe than originally thought. I asked the Commonwealth Attorney Tom Wine to intervene and press charges against the officer, he refused. I’ve since filed a lawsuit against the city and Officer Scott Sturgeon.

Well now I’m upset! I’m broken physically, emotionally, and mentally; and quite frankly, I feel compelled to take action myself and try to use public support to persuade the City of Louisville (or Mayor of Louisville) to do the right thing by making me whole again and charging now retired officer Scott sturgeon with felony assault. I’m asking each and every citizen of the City of Louisville & across the country to stand with me, and tell the City of Louisville, Kentucky; Mayor of Louisville, Kentucky; and the Louisville Metro Police Department to acknowledge the Officer’s excessive use of force against me over a parking violation & charge him, to acknowledge the injuries caused to me by the officer, to publicly apologize to me, and most importantly, pay all of my medical expenses (past, present, and future) that are directly related to the officer’s excessive use of force against me.

Until the City of Louisville corrects this misdeed, I’m also asking each of you to join me in boycott of the 2016 Kentucky Derby horse races being held at Churchill Downs and also all festivities surrounding the Kentucky Derby itself. I ask you to stand united with me, and please sign this petition to help right the injustice heaped on me. I sincerely thank you for any support you are willing to give me.”

Check out her written story as well as sign and share the mentioned petition by clicking HERE. Please, please be sure to share.

As in my video I say, the petition is simply to say you will join the rest of us in boycotting the Kentucky Derby, which brings in tons of money to the corrupt town. If they see their numbers go down, that people want the government to treat ALL of us with care, concern, respect and medical attention that is deserved beyond a doubt to victims, this is the most basic and mandatory of actions; give medical care to those in need!

Please spread the word; please let us find a way to give her relief from all the burdens she has had to hold up, not only as a mother, but ALL of it; from the mental and emotional to the financial stress and pain, she has suffered! And let no one forget, the extreme and very painful injury she received by an off duty officer.

She lives in pain, every, day. She’s a kind and good woman and mother; shouldn’t we do all we can to give her the kindness she deserves? Shouldn’t we be fighting hard as we can to demand her suffering to stop?!

How can we NOT do something??

The following is the previous article I wrote, for the interested. Old article begins:

In Kentucky, one early morning, Antwynette Houston pulled into a shop with her 9 year old son. Imagine if this were you. Imagine the trauma both her and her child endure both mentally and she also was severely physically wounded.

An off duty police officer approached her over something as insane as how her car was parked….
This guy for all she knew could have been anyone, he just stated he was a cop, and refused, refused, to call the police or show his badge; in any way identify himself as an actual cop.  After verbally harassing her for awhile, she was dragged out of her car and brutally attacked by an off duty police officer. 
Turns out he wasn’t even an officer, he’s a Sergent- doesn’t work the streets – but felt the need to harass this Black woman over ‘how she was parked.’ For that, she winds up being yanked out of her car -after she told him she had just had surgery a year prior,- breaks her shoulder & causing other serious injuries.

I feel her telling you is so much more powerful than anything I can say, so I beg you to please watch her video. She is in need of a 3rd surgery; in need of attention and justice. Let’s do all we can to help her get her life back on track- lord knows what this has done to her traumatically… This is exactly why we -anyone who cares for human rights in general but especially Black Lives Matter- need to help and bring attention to her traumatic case…
Here is her story;

Please donate to help her obtain the surgery she needs; the justice she deserves. If the media and the world is going to ignore the majority of police brutality cases, it is our job to help and expose in any way we can. If you can’t afford to donate, please, please share.

*Updated* Gynnya McMillen, 16 YrOld Black Female, Law Enforcement Killed in Detention; Refuses Give Info to Family

This was originally posted yesterday, I do not have the link to the article but if I find it, I will share it; I just had this clip as it was the only updated information on her case. I don’t know if what happened regarding “domestic violence” to be true or not, but from what I’ve read and people I’ve spoken to, it doesn’t seem like that is a reliable piece of information. Whether I’m right OR not and if it is found to be true: She did not deserve death no matter if it’s true or not.
And if her case is so natural and innocent why are they not releasing any more information regarding her death to her family? Why so secretive and why did it take so long to obtain what little they have? [These people are covering up her case greatly.] It seems to me they are trying to tarnish her image with this, or because make her look like she is “bad” by using the “foster home” information… People have no reason to be ashamed of it but people will judge; and they will do so without the right to… The information given is not information that justifies a killing nor is the information that which should be held against any person, for any reason or spoken about as if it is the victims fault [the foster care child].

Update Posted on January 20, 2016 at 4:44am:

The child was the perpetrator in the incident and the parent did receive minor injuries,” said Kelly Cable, spokesman for the Shelbyville Police De­partment. “We contacted the court-designated worker. The juvenile was transported to Lincoln Village on a charge of assault fourth-degree – domestic violence with minor injury.” According to CBS, an autopsy report found no outward signs of “visual bruising” and the teen did not have any heart related conditions. It will take several more weeks for pathology tests to be conducted on the teen in hopes of determining the cause of death. It’s unclear whether McMillen was in foster care, but she seems to have a previous history with social services. “

There is not much information released regarding this 16 year old’s death but this is what we do know thus far. On January 11th, 2016, the young Black woman was found ‘unresponsive’ in a juvenile detention center, where she was pronounced dead.

Here is where it gets absolutely unbelievable, though there is no low the law enforcement won’t stoop to in order to cover their own ass. They claim that they went ahead and did an autopsy on the minor and found she died of NATURAL CAUSES…

She was 16…. Yeah…. What the lies they claim she died from, aka the, “natural causes” is not something they are willing to give to her family or the public, either. They won’t release to anyone -including her family or parents- what the autopsy said other than she died of so called natural causes, and that they are investigating the death.

Now imagine if this were the person you loved more than anything; your wife, daughter, sister, best friend, aunt, niece, grandchild… How would you feel not only being treated with such little respect and regard, but also being kept in the dark about your loved ones death?

If this doesn’t further prove racism in America is all too well and alive, I don’t know what the hell will.
