Newark, NJ-Cops Draw Gun on 10 Yr Old Black Child-Video!

This 10 year old child omg how I wish I could hug him! He reminds me of so many children I know as well as too many children I’ve counseled… Racism doesn’t exist? I had some idiot trying to tell me the KKK isn’t a threat; call these white ‘supremacists’ idiots what you want, they are all the same and MUST BE STOPPED!

I’ve lived in Newark off and on, and I love the community… I’ve never seen a child afraidwhite supremacy police white power sucks black pride black lives matter of the cops except, sadly, Black children. From friends, to family and to the kids I worked with and those I still work with… Why is it only the precious Black children being traumatized if there is ‘no racism’?!?!? I HATE THAT THERE IS RACISM, but it’s REAL denying it does NOTHING!

To this precious child… I don’t know what to say; he is the embodiment of so many I have worked with… And it enrages me; it enrages me that the cops can get away with it because he is Black! AND WE KNOW THAT IS TRUE!!!!!!  Please watch.  I’m gonna have to make a video on this in a bit.

Tony Soto, Black Male & Activist, Being Wrongfully Held No Trial; $900,000.00 Bond!

“… falsely arrested in response to an incident which occured on May 18,2016 with an off duty police office. Tony has been held since May 18, in a Phila prison on an outrageously absurb $900,000.00 bond and has not had an hearing yet. The PPD has fraudulently manufactured a case on Tony and has him unlawfully detained on an unreasonable bond to keep him from adaquetly defending himself.”- Tony Soto’s mother 

Yeah you saw the number right; $900,000.00 bond, and her son is not just an educated Black male; he is an activist who has fought for civil rights and equality in Philadelphia, PA, for years. He’s a caring person; please help spread the his story! 

Not only is he an activist, but Tony’s also a friend of mine; I know his personality and the videos I share below his mother’s link and information will prove to you too that Tony knows what he’s talking about; that’s the real reason they’ve locked him up, to silence him. There are no allegations the police can make to justify holding him without trial on $900,000.00 bail! 

He knows how to respect police and wouldn’t do anything that he knows would put him away; this is an attempt to silence him; please don’t let that happen!!!  And let me add, as you’ll see if you watch his videos, that respect he gives is met with harassment and intimidation, numerous times by the Philadelphia police.

“The cops responded on local news claiming the allegations made was done with the intent to and I quote,“bait the police.”… No, I’m not joking.”- Police use blame “game” when the media questions them over  Tony’s video recorded harassment. 

 He has many of these on video; in fact I wrote a couple of posts with those videos regarding the police harassment he was going through. Please, please help anyway you can… Even if it’s simply share. Remember, Black Lives Matter; that includes the lives of those living and being wronged; especially for someone who has spent so much of his time helping others. 

The first post is here and includes videos an insane and uncalled for traffic stop which he recorded. It is vivid evidence of the Philly cops targeting him with harassment and intimidation tactics. Being a a young, educated Black man…who knows his rights and stood up for the rights of others as well came with a price; after a set up. 900,000.00 bail! . <!–  The following two quotes are from Tony’s videos in the post I mentioned above, first, a small piece from his convo with a rude cop:

We’re going to stop all this nonsense with you guys down here- just stopping people and doing whatever you want so that’s done, those days are over.”-Tony

“I’m glad you think you’re changing the world.” -Cop
“No sir actually, let me explain something to you, I’m not changing the world okay, I’m professional, and we’re going to change it one person at a time.”-Tony

And as he later sat in his car waiting for the cops to come back over and say he could leave. He had been stopped by the cops and harassed, treated with no respect or kindness, and the police end up sitting in the squad car until, for whatever reason, they decided to simply drive off… Before this though, as he awaits the officers return:

“I’m going to set my phone back down before I get shot and they say that I’m reaching for something.” – Tony says to the camera sitting, waiting and wondering why the cop suddenly -and strangely- decided to move to the other side of the street without speaking to him again during his ‘traffic stop’. 

The cops ended up trying to make him into a villain on local media which Tony made a video response about:

 Fox29 News After Story Aired; very interesting. The cops responded on local news claiming the allegations made was done with the intent to and I quote,“bait the police.”… No, I’m not joking.

As he says in this video,[paraphrased] the last time he checked, it was the police officers who stopped him, not the other way around.
He goes on to say he isn’t anti-police; however all forms of abuse the police participate in or commit is BLATANTLY WRONG.

As he states regarding the illegal traffic stop and harassment by police, the video offers a prime example of one of the many ways in which police get away with behaving in any manner they desire.

The second post can be found by clicking here.  Again, he is harassed by police on video,  and also a lot of information from Tony himself.

Finally, almost a year ago, in this post  you can check out the last time I wrote about Tony’s situation; and I made a video on his behalf as well as to explain the sickness in white privilege, for this wouldn’t be happening to a white male. Not like this. 

Please donate, share and help get his story noticed. He’s been fighting for ALL targets of police killings and racism; now it’s our turn; please do whatever you can… Thank you… 

Black Female, Ralkina Jones, “I don’t Wanna Die in Your Cell”-Caugh on Video

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.”

Excerpt from Ralkina Jones’ autopsy reportCuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office

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.

While Jones was being booked, she was seen on video telling officers, “I don’t want to die in your cell.”

Tamir Rice; Why Isn’t Cleveland Police Department Being Held Accountable Knowing the Dangers of Loehmann?

“People need to get involved with something and try to make a change or something because you don’t want to wait until it happens to you and there’s nobody out there for you,” said Samaria.

Too many mothers and grandmothers have felt the pain of losing a child; too many people know what it is like to have their child -no matter how old-stolen from them because of racist cops. [First post / video I made regarding Tamir Rice…] And after all the documents revealed from others about Loehmann’s behaviors, including departments stating how unfit

tamir rice

he would be as a cop and how irresponsible he would be with a gun; how did he get signed on in Cleveland and why aren’t we doing more to ensure they are held accountable?!?

A grand jury in Ohio said they wouldn’t indict Tamir Rice’s murderer, Timothy A. Loehmann, 26. Tamir Rice’s mother is obviously hurting, upset that more people are not waking up and getting involved. This case -along with countless others- will continue to grow, nothing will change, until more is demanded, she is right. We can look at the case of Jeremy Mardis (6 years old, white), the Black officers that killed him and compare with Tamir Rice (or any other case). Click HERE to do that. [CHECK BACK WITHIN 24 HOURS FOR ACTIVE LINK]

On this post, I want to remind people of what a detestable person Timothy Loehmann is. HAVE PEOPLE FORGOTTEN HOW UNACCEPTABLE AND INAPPROPRIATE THIS COP WAS FOUND TO BE EVEN PRIOR TO HIS MURDERING A 12 YEAR OLD CHILD!?

Loehmann was deemed unsuitable as a police officer and resigned after the small town police department accounted that Officer Loehmann was too emotionally unstable and unfit to be an officer; taking extra time to note that he was especially unfit in his handling of firearms.

In December of 2012 Loehmann quit his $42,000 patrolman in training job after a November 2012 memo written recommended Loehmann be dismissed due to his inability to follow instructions as well as make good choices during stressful situations.

His firearms trainer noted Loehmann’s performance with handguns was unsatisfactory and unfit for an officer. That he was unable to “communicate clear thoughts” and showed up for training weepy and distracted added to the trainer and Deputy’s belief Loehmann was shouldn’t be a police officer.He applied -unsuccessfully- to many police departments, including the NYPD and was turned down; that says something in itself.

“That theme was repeated many times by Ptl. Loehmann, even him stating,“I will work here as long as possible; and do my best, but if I find I don’t like it then I will go do something else.” I found this lack of commitment to us, disturbing. It just appears that he is not mature enough in his accepting of responsibility or his understanding in the severity of his loss of control on the range.”

The deputy chief questioned Loehmann’s decision-making:

Ptl. Loehmann’s inability to perform basic functions as instructed, and his inability to emotionally function because of a personal situation at home with an on and off again girlfriend leads one to believe that he would not be able to substantially cope, or make good decisions, during or resulting from any other stressful situation.

After repeat incidents where he would go into emotional fits over anything from not being hired in NY to his on and off again girlfriend or anything else on his mind (he is noted as emotionally unstable THROUGHOUT), he additionally considered himself to be the only one allowed to give him orders as he disobeyed any orders if it didn’t fit in with what he wanted to do.

“It appears from the pattern developing within our short time frame with Ptl. Loehmann that he often feels that when told to do something, that those instructions are optional, and that he can manipulate them if he so feels it can better serve him. I do not say he is doing this for some benefit, or in an insubordinate way, but he just appears to have the mind set that if he thinks he knows better, than that is the course he follows.”

Finally, Loehmann was noted to as showing “dangerous loss of composure” during live range training. The ultimate conclusion was Loehmann was not mature enough nor emotionally stable enough to be on the police force. He did not believe time nor training would change “or correct the deficiencies,” correctly noted in regards to Loehmann. YOU CAN READ THE COMPLETE MEMO HERE.

Since they are not going to indict Loehmann, I say the Cleveland Police Department should face charges for being unaware of the dangerous, unskilled and unstable officer they were releasing upon the public.

Additionally, in September of 2013, Loehmann failed the Sheriff Department’s written entrance exam; coming out with a failing score of 46 of 100. Keep in mind 70 is the minimum score allowable for entrance… Read about this, HERE.

Even former California Sheriff lieutenant, Mr. Clark, noted:

“The killing of this child was completely avoidable and preventable and should never have occurred.”

And the Cleveland PD hired this guy… Why are we not demanding action against them, then, if the government refuses to take the correct action against the physical killer; shouldn’t Cleveland PD be held accountable for their hiring this unstable thug, for allowing him out onto the streets with a gun?

Cleveland Police say they formerly did not read the public records, some of which are noted above, before hiring. Since Tamir Rice’s death, they have made it a ‘priority’ to check all publicly available information.

That’s no excuse.

WE HAVE TO TAKE ACTION!

Currently, his mother is rightfully so upset and hurting as we need to be going after the ‘verdict’ in this case. We need to be demanding justice; not letting up AT ALL….

I will have some videos up related to this info soon, stay tuned….

CLEVELAND — Samaria Rice expected more protesters following the grand jury’s decision not to indict two Cleveland police officers in the shooting death of her 12-year-old son, Tamir.

“I wish there could have been more people,” said Samaria. “These people need to wake-up if they want some change.”

Protesters turned out consistently in the days following the decision, but not in big numbers.

“People need to get involved with something and try to make a change or something because you don’t want to wait until it happens to you and there’s nobody out there for you,” said Samaria. To read more, please click HERE.

EXPOSED-Police Violence VS Community Violence

Screen Shot 2015-12-23 at 8.55.40 AMIt’s no surprise the cops enjoy lying…still, I think this article is very important to read. I hope this is a sign that people are starting to focus energies on the real enemy, and unite together… One people, one struggle…

The police often say that the police are where the crime is as a way to suggest that the reason that they are more violent in certain communities is because they have to be there because the communities are more violent,” DeRay Mckesson, a member of Campaign Zero’s planning team and one of the most prominent voices in the Black Lives Matter movement, told The Huffington Post. “We wanted to see how the data matched to that suggestion, and what we saw is that it doesn’t.

“It just reminds us that the police are choosing to be violent in communities,” he added.  

A common retort to movements against police violence has been “Well, what about black-on-black crime?” — a phrase that originated in the 1980s and has been used to cite black people as the problem instead of poverty, poor educational opportunities, proximity and other factors that spike crime rates in all communities despite racial composition.

“For us it was pretty simple. We’ve been hearing these arguments going around without any data or any evidence from folks who are saying that police are killing so many people — particularly black people — because they say black people are in high-crime communities and potentially involved in criminal activity,” said Samuel Sinyangwe, another member of the planning team.

The group compared violent crime rates from the 2014 FBI Uniform Crime report to the number of people police killed in each city this year. To confirm the findings, Sinyangwe said Campaign Zero also ran three years worth of police killing data and arrived at the same conclusion.

“This myth that people have created that community violence is the cause of police violence is absolutely false,” said Brittany Packnett, another member of Campaign Zero’s planning team, who also sat on Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon’s (D) Ferguson Commission. “This is an issue of policy, of accountability and of culture inside of departments.”

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
