Okay. This is sickening and infuriating and sadly not the first time I’ve heard of things like this as when i worked for the national organization I’ve heard from women abused by
police or families who had a loved one murdered under similar situation. People, I hope, realize that just because it isn’t on the news does not mean it is a rare thing.
I also hope people understand that though it may seem like every abuse or death case would be online, even if it is just locally based, some victims of police brutality just as some families of murdered victims are often embarassed by the sort of abuse, or afraid to speak out thus it only is heard of if they decide to reach out for counselling or something similar, sadly.
Below is the heartbreaking and repulsive actions of police officers whom admit Natasha McKenna was handcuffed and had her legs shackled when the police murdered her. What the hell are the people doing; our previous method isn’t working so … my god how can people not be viciously outraged??
Natasha McKenna was murdered by the police, plain and simple. There is really no other way to put it, or any other thing to call it when a woman is killed after being handcuffed and shackled.

Trayvon is horrific, but there are so many people that are exposed to the same injustice, if not in death, in abuse. Trayvon got media attention, most cases do not. If they did, maybe there would be some change… It takes people to CARE, first…. Article begins:

Isolated for decades – solitary confinement is like “living death”. Help end this horrible practice -> click here to sign the petition, which is almost at it’s goal; let’s try to make it way higher than the goal target…
Not all people in prison are guilty of horrific crimes… In fact, most aren’t. Murderers, pedophiles and rapists don’t make up the majority of our prisons. Point of me saying that is, if people say they are “put off” signing this because people in prison should “all rot” they are mistaken GREATLY.
Not even including the innocent souls in prison, it seems people also tend to leave out those who Continue reading Please Help- People are Tortured in American Prisons for Things Such As, Reading “The Prince”
