(Video) Police Don’t Have the Most Dangerous Job & Other Myths…

I made this video into two parts mainly because my phone messed up the main video šŸ™‚ 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…

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 juryā€™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.

Outrage Over: Innocent People Being Killed by Cops orTwo Cops Shot in Brooklyn…

I find it humbling that some protesters in NYC left flowers for the two cops that were killed by a gunmen with a history of violence and mental illness. Upset over the injustice of the murders of men such as Eric Garner and Micheal Brown, he set out to take police life; and he did. Do I agree? No, of course not. But he was seriously mentally ill, and I am positive watching Black male after Black male be murdered by police was not helping him any. So I can understand to a degree. However, now things are going to escalate. Black lives will be in even more danger as police across America have now been put on alert due to the killings.

I don’t support killing another unless it is self defense. However, I can’t say I have the same good heart as so many protesters have by giving the flowers and showing their condolences. I don’t want anyone to die and anytime anyone loses a member of the family it is hard… However, I somehow cannot feel sympathy like I do for victims of police violence. Newspapers never mentioned anything positive about Tamir Rice; and I’d be willing to bet Fox News isn’t talking about Darren Wilson or the lying witnesses in Michael Brown’s case.

I have not read anywhere (so I assume TV is the same … as always ) that mentions the grief of the families that just lost a child to killer cop(s). However, when you read the papers all one will see is talk of how horribly painful it is for the cop’s wife, and of course, the children…

That is what upset me the most. The children. Kids have been killed by cops before, but because Tamir Rice made the news I will use him as an example and ask, why is no one outraged that a mother has lost her baby? Why are people not outraged when the cops kill or severely beat an innocent, unarmed person? How can so many people in society see evenĀ  just one or two of these cases and then turn away, saying that the police “must have had a reason”, as if they are saints from heaven above?!

In New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio has made it clear that he wants all police brutality protestors to stop mourning and to stop their freedom to express their pain, disgust and outrage over the killing of innocents by police until the dead cops funerals are finished. This is a slap to the face and I hope not one soul listens. #NYPDLIVESMATTER but no more than #BLACKLIVESMATTER or #HUMANLIVESMATTER –

During his public speech to give condolences to the families of the slain cops he said the following, which only fuels the fire and passion in me to fight for what is just and right. He said: Continue reading Outrage Over: Innocent People Being Killed by Cops orTwo Cops Shot in Brooklyn…

Is There Any Hope Left? -Regarding Police Brutality …

Whether this society is hopeless or not doesn’t matter. If this society is damned, then that doesn’t mean we must allow it to defeat the good within us, we shouldn’t bow down to sickness even if the sickness will never end. But it can end. And I know how. I know why I have hope.

No matter how evil, racist, sexist and hate filled this society is, I will be more so. Love conquers all, and I can and do love enough to hate (Slipknot reference, sorry). I refuse to let hope slide away. If there is no more hope for humanity, trying to save it may be pointless, but one thing each and every one of us can do, hopeless or not, is at least fight back against those who are doing inhumane things. Comfort those who need it; speak out for those who cannot or will not.

childAnother 12 year old child was murdered on video, Tamir Rice (I say another because he is not the first and I fear he will not be the last). I watched him, somehow I connected with him in a way I rarely do with anyone. IĀ feltĀ his innocence, I saw his humanity, his good soul; and I saw it stolen forĀ no reasonĀ in under 2 seconds upon police arrival.

Then I see that the cop who blatantly killed Eric Garner in that choke hold (video available for this also) has been cleared… while the one who video-taped it was indicted. Why are we not rioting in the streets more? Is this what it means for society to lose all hope? To stop fighting? Because we are letting murder, blatant murder, go on and the murderers go unpunished. Why is society not revolting? Why are more people not outraged? Giving up hope on society is one thing; silencing yourself is another.
