The Blatant, SAD Double Standard for Black & White Victims

Below is a brief video I mad out of frustration regarding how police brutality, racism and accountability are different things for every person depending mainly on the color of your skin. I can’t wrap my head around that thought, but anyway…
In it I talk about cases I’ll be going into more depth over in upcoming videos, as noted, I took a break to get this off my chest; but it’s truth and I think that’s easy to see. *Before I go any further, no child should die, no person regardless of age or race should be murdered. My point here is why is there such a major difference in reaction to the murdering of a white child and the murdering of a Black child? In this video I talk about previous cases regarding children whose lives were stolen by police, but we need only look to present day to see the difference in treatment between Black victims and white victims. That is a simple and plain fact.

The media [for-profit media] will try to slander the character of any Black victim, trying to brainwash those watching mindlessly into believing that the police were actually in the right. Instead of blindly accepting their opinion and “statements” why not look into the issue yourself if you must judge? Or better yet; why is it we can’t see with great clarity that no one, especially a child, should be murdered by the police?

And when a child or a person of any age is killed or beaten, why are we not holding the cops to a higher standard; why are they allowed to walk…so long as the child is not white that is.

Jeremy Mardis death is tragic and my heart goes out to his family. But Tamir Rice and countless others (currently what the main video I’m working on, will post soon) don’t get the same treatment, attention, respect or closure and that’s not right; that’s not justice! All deaths by cops should at the very least be treated as Jeremy’s tragic and premature death. But the majority are not; regardless of age or circumstance… It all comes down to race; and that is a huge problem. A huge problem we all need to unite and fight to change…Together.

This, needs to change…. No matter the race, color, gender, etc- no one should be killed. But, dealing with the reality that too many innocent lives are being taken by cops in America we must face the facts. Racism is very evident, cops should NOT BE ALLOWED TO MURDER OR BEAT ANYONE WHOM IS NOT WHITE; THEY SHOULDN’T BE ALLOWED TO MURDER PERIOD! That’s my point.

The thumb nail photo brings tears to my eyes; I work with kids who confide things like this; my friends kids confide feelings like this… To see the site, please visit http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2015/01/cleveland_students_racism_viol.html#3

David Felix; Remember That Name…

April 25, 2015, the 24 year-old unarmed ‘Black’ man from Haiti; an activist and an aspiring fashion student living in NYC, was murdered by two veteran NYPD ‘detectives.’ It’s sickly ironic to me that they always seem to hit the good guys, maybe I’m just being paranoid; but anyone who is pro-community seems to be an even larger target. Is that just me?David Felix Murdered by NYPD
David was a very popular and welcomed face among the homeless and the runaway youth community here in New York City. Social and legal providers alike knew David Felix to be a man with a beautiful heart; the loving, giving first generation immigrant was welcomed into New York City with open arms because of his good nature, his pure spirit and beautiful heart.
He had a passion of caring for those who needed it the most; hurting a soul was the last thing I can imagine David Felix would have ever thought of. He is the kind of man this world needs more of; not just man, but soul. But the NYPD do not want to see that; especially from a Black male so you know what tragically happens next.

Undercover NYPD, MTA, Metro, Documents Kept on BlackLivesMatter Activists

Repost! I’ll write my response to this insanity, or, make a YouTube video in response sometime this weekend. For now…Read this insanity; insanity that we were warned was happening, anyhow.~Eve

Documents obtained by The Intercept confirm that undercover police officers attended numerous Black Lives Matter protests in New York City between December 2014 and February 2015. The documents also show that police in New York have monitored activists, tracking their movements and keeping individual photos of them on file.

The nearly 300 documents, released by the Metropolitan Transit Authority and the Metro-North Railroad, reveal more on-the-ground surveillance of Black Lives Matter activists than previous reports have shown, conducted by a coalition of MTA counterterrorism agents and undercover police in conjunction with NYPD intelligence officers.

This appears to be the first documented proof of the frequent presence of undercover police at Black Lives Matter protests in the city of New York, though many activists have suspected their presence since mass protests erupted there last year over a grand jury’s decision not to indict Daniel Pantaleo, a police officer involved in the death of Eric Garner.

The protest surveillance and use of undercover officers raises questions over whether New York-area law enforcement agencies are potentially criminalizing the exercise of free speech and treating activists like terrorist threats. Critics say the police files seem to document a response vastly disproportionate to the level of law breaking associated with the protests.

URGENT! Please Help the Family of Nate Wilks Get the Truth!

We gotta try new approaches if we are to ever take back control of our own lives; especially those of young Black males. Please consider donating even $1.00 to the cause of raising money for an independent autopsy for Nate Wilks, who was shot to death only days before his 28th birthday. justice4natewilks

The autopsy conducted by the government of course contradicted everything the eye-witnesses testified to. Having law enforcement officials investigate fellow law enforcement officers in cases like this is the same as asking a gang member to judge and speak out in truth against his fellow brother. CLICK HERE TO GO TO DONATION SITE.

The cops will, if we are lucky, 1% of the time, find wrong doing to belong to officers. Independent investigations and autopsy’s are NEEDED but so is money. We need to unite; we need community; we need to all join and do anything we can… Even if it is just sharing this petition and raising awareness to this young man and his plight.

Please, do anything you can… Whatever you do, please do not remain silent…

What: Raise $5,000 to pay for an independent autopsy for Nathaniel Wilks, who was shot to death by Oakland police last week.

When: ASAP. We need to raise the funds in the NEXT FOUR DAYS–by Sunday, August 23rd. Sunday is the day before Nathaniel’s mother will return to NY and three days before what would have been Nate’s 28th birthday.

Why: On Wednesday, August 12, 2015, 27-year-old Nathaniel Wilks was shot and murdered by Oakland police at the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Way and 27th St. in Oakland, CA.

A team of Anti-Police Terror Project First Responders arrived at the intersection within half an hour of the shooting and spoke with over a dozen eye-witnesses. Every first-hand account has been consistent on this point: Nate was running away from the cops when he was shot.

In the week that has followed, however, Continue reading URGENT! Please Help the Family of Nate Wilks Get the Truth!

Aron Shaw; Remember That Name. Murdered, Tortured, His Killers Walked Away

I have so many current cases with police brutality and my other areas of activism I’ve not been able to keep up the videos here as I wish to- that WILL change and I’ll also start including other videos dealing with things like racism, modern day Jim Crow, the ORIGINS of cops, modern day slavery, poverty, the Prison INDUSTRY and etc. For now though, it’s for police brutality; and these are some of my cases I worked on a few years ago.

I’m sharing for two reasons: 1) Remember the victim, 2) See what the cops doing today as these cases were about 2 yrs back give or take. Each video will be for a new person, and I will do current beatings and murders soon. For now, please share this mans horrible story.
Unarmed. In his 40s. Screaming for his life. Beaten in multiple locations. Taken 7 miles outside the town and then the father/son cop duo got him out of the car and killed him.

They have never been punished. And they never will, as enraging as that is. Let it enrage you; this is STILL GOING ON! It has never stopped!!! Let’s change that.

Urgent: Stop surveillance of Black Lives Matter activists

Black Lives Matter

Stop surveillance of Black Lives Matter activists

(click here to sign petition)
Sunday, August 9th marked one year since Michael Brown’s unjust death and the ensuing protests in Ferguson.

On top of the numerous unnecessary fatalities that have occurred at the hands of police this past year, it turns out that the Department of Homeland Security has been conducting surveillance on #BlackLivesMatter activists1.

By trolling Facebook, Twitter, and Vine, the federal government has mapped and collected info on #BlackLivesMatter protests and activists around the country.

We know that DHS shares what it gathers with local and federal law enforcement for targeting police stops and investigations. This can result in private information about specific individuals being funneled into the Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting system, which provides reports to the FBI.

This must stop. Tell DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson and Attorney General Loretta Lynch that activists have a right to speak, organize, and protest.

Today, at a time when the public is outraged and sickened that Black men and women are killed by police in too many incidents, the tracking of #BlackLivesMatter activists is just unacceptable.

Aiyana Stanley-Jones; Murdered by Detroit Police Officer

On May 16, 2010, Aiyana Stanley-Jones, 7 years old, was murdered in her sleep by Officer Joseph Weekley, who shot her in the head with his sub-machine gun. She was sleeping on the couch at her grandmothers house when Weekley and other officers raided the wrong apartment. This is a tragic but sadly perfeaiyan-jones-shot-by-cops-1ct example of how cops shoot without caution, care or out of “fear for their lives”.

After an officer outside threw a flash grenade threw the window and Weekley could see, he pointed the sub-machine gun (why do police need sub-machine guns?) at the precious 7 year old girl sleeping, and shot her in the head; killing her.

His defense? He claimed her grandmother tried to knock the gun out of his hands thus resulting in him pulling the trigger. There is no evidence of that, however. No finger prints but his are on that gun. No blood is on anyone’s hands but his own. It’s beyond me how he can sleep at night knowing he aimed his gun and killed a sleeping child and then lied, blaming the grandmother for his actions. She had been traumatized enough without his cruel words being spoken. How could anyone with a heart even fathom to kill anyone much less an innocent child; and then place the blame on the grandmother, who witnessed the entire thing? That is a special kind of evil.

Aiyana’s grandmother says she never touched the officer but instead ran towards her granddaughter, which makes complete sense for a human being to do in this situation. We don’t even need the physical evidence to know that what happened is exactly what her grandma said happened as it’s basic human nature. But the physical evidence should have helped.

It took three years before the officer was taken to trial. Weekley has been tried twice for this horrific crime, both resulting in deadlock or a mistrial. Interestingly enough, the defense proposed a motion that the judge at the first trial denied. The judge in the second case for some reason decided to approve the same motion, which dismissed the felony charge of “involuntary” manslaughter. Because of Judge Cynthia Gray Hathaway’s decision to accept the motion by defense Aiyana’s case cannot be appealed under law. The defense attorney said the following in response:

“Today we personally informed the family of Aiyana Stanley-Jones that we have made a decision that we would not be going to trial for a third time in the Joseph Weekley case. It is unfortunate that Judge Cynthia Gray Hathaway granted a directed verdict dismissing the felony Manslaughter charge, leaving only the misdemeanor count of Careless Discharge Causing Injury or Death. Under the law her decision cannot be appealed.  On Friday, January 30, 2015 at 9:00 a.m., we will move to dismiss the case.”

What a wonderful nation we have; what a wonderful legal system we have, that allows killers to get off and then ensure there are no more appeals or He swore to protect citizens, but that is the last thing he did. Police should be held to a higher standard than citizens when they murder someone; especially a sleeping child. Outrage should be seen across this nation; but nothing like that has happened nor will it.

Weekely is still on the streets as a cop. He has never been punished for this unspeakable crime. During the investigation he was placed on paid leave, which is nothing more than a paid vacation. That’s no punishment and he hasn’t had any form of discipline whatsoever for the murder of Aiyana Stanley-Jones.

How many more times do we have to go through this; how many times does police murder and beatings have to occur before the people, including you the reader get angry and we all unite against the true enemy?

My YouTube Channel for Police Brutality, Racism

I have been away from this blog site for far too long; but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been active. I just couldn’t handle at that time all I was doing and maintaining another blog. However, I am back now and plan to be posting a few times a week, and also making videos.
In fact, I’ll let the videos explain 🙂
The first video is just a little information about me and etc; it’s short… And then I’m going to include one video from an argument I had a few weeks ago that sparked me wanting to get back into blogging about police brutality and racism as it sums up my views on racism an police brutality pretty well.
I just made my new channel tonight, click here to subscribe for police brutality, racism, and etc related videos. There is only one video right now as I started this channel tonight, but I assure you a lot more will come very soon, so please subscribe if interested 🙂
Thanks and thank you all who stayed during my ‘time of silence’.
Me and Police Brutality & Racism; And What My New YouTube Page is About:

For the interested, here is a video I made the night I was arguing with the racist…it pretty much sums up my feelings regarding racism and police brutality. The ones that came before it are on that channel for …again, those interested. But from now on, polic ebrutality and racism will have a separate and dedicated YouTube channel.
And yes, I am a bit angry in them especially the last one…but if you aren’t…perhaps you should be.
