Young and Stupid at Howard University

Like in any movement, or any group you have some folks a few tons short of a full payload.

Racial politics shouldn’t even be entering into this discussion – much less politics based on loudmouth ignorance.

The former FBI Head may not be your best friend, but unlike the current asshat in charge of the DOJ – he isn’t your enemy.

Comey at least is trying to add value. The loudmouth protesters here provide no value whatsoever – and need to be sent back to their grandmas to learn some manners. And their daddies if he can be found to teach them some common fucking sense.

Choose your enemies carefully.

This old white guy may have some important things to teach you.

James Comey’s speech interrupted by protesters at Howard University

Former FBI director James Comey’s speech to students the historically black Howard University in Washington, D.C., was interrupted numerous times by protesters on Friday.

“We shall not be moved!” the protesters yelled, fists raised in the air. They also chanted, “No justice, no peace,” and told Comey to “get out” of their “home.”

“I’m only going to speak for 12 minutes,” Comey said in response to the demonstrators.

Comey, who was appointed FBI director by President Obama in 2013 to lead the FBI, was fired by President Trump in May. His dismissal provoked the appointment of Robert Mueller, himself a former FBI director, as the special counsel tasked with investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Howard University named Comey an endowed chair in public policy last month, with his $100,000 salary going to provide scholarships to the school. “I look forward to contributing to this remarkable institution and engaging students and faculty alike,” Comey said in a statement upon his hiring.

However, some students were clearly upset Wednesday by the school’s decision to bring Comey aboard. “You sold out to the FBI!” some yelled at administrators during the speech.

Cop in Grand Rapids Pulls Gun on Teens Walking In Front of Their Homes

There really was no justifiable reason to do this. In Grand Rapids, 5 black teens are accosted at gunpoint by a Police Officer, supposedly looking for an armed black male. There are a lot of ways the Cop could have approached this issue without drawing a firearm. Especially since it seems he had substantial backup less than 10 seconds away.

This Cop just cemented any suspicion in these kids minds, that the Police are armed thugs instead of community protectors.

Hat Tip to “The Advise Show” on this one. Advise is a YouTube Channel out of Houston, with interesting content.

‘Stop crying, bro! They gonna think we did something!’: Unarmed black teens sob as cop holds them at gunpoint

Last month, officers in Grand Rapids, Michigan were responding to a call about an armed suspect when they pulled their gun on five teenagers minding their own business.

The body cam video posted by BuzzFeed revealed sobbing teens forced to lay on the ground as the officer pointed his gun at them.

“Guys, get on the ground. Keep your hands out,” a Grand Rapids police officer tells a group of youths in the video. “Just follow our directions and we’ll be all right, OK?”

The teens are seen raising their hands before laying on the sidewalk.

“Stop crying, bro! They gonna think we did something!” one of the boy’s friends can be heard saying.

Police Taser 90 Year Old Alzheimer’s Victim

As any Policeman in the world ought to know, elderly people with Dementia can be hard to deal with. They are in their own world. They are frightened by new situations, and become extremely uncomfortable if removed from the environment they are used to. This poor guy posed no risk to anyone except possibly himself. In any event, hitting someone in their 80’s or 90’s is tantamount to attempted murder – as the taser can shut down any heart devices they may have implanted. And it is fairly easy for the seizure caused by a taser shot to break fragile bones.

Another incident of Cops going crazy.

My question is…Why did the nursing home people call the cops? Often, you can change a person ‘s mind who is suffering from the disease by something as simple as waiting 10 minutes.

And yeah, this is under Black Lives Matter – making Cops responsible, and getting them the correct training doesn’t just help black folks.

Body-cam video disputes police account of 91-year-old man with Alzheimer’s tasered at nursing home

Body camera video is now available from the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office of an incident in March in which officers used a taser on a 91-year-old man with Alzheimer’s at a nursing home.

Police were called because the Minneapolis man wouldn’t get into the car to go to the doctor, KWCH reported. At the time of the incident, the sheriff’s office claimed that the elderly man was violent but the videos show a different story.

The 28-minute long video shows the man repeatedly refusing to leave. Sitting in a char in his room, he was batting at officers as they attempted to try and help him up. Then he begins to run away. The undersheriff then tased him and the man was taken out on a stretcher.

The family of the man asked that the video not show the man’s identity. They also revealed that the handcuffs broke his wrists and they think the incident weakened his heart and lead to his death two months later.

The Sheriff’s office is closed for the holidays, but in March Police Chief Jon Strowig said that there would be an investigation.

“There was forced used, and that’s currently under investigation,” he said simply.

NYC Cops Attack Man for Walking Dog Without a Leash

Another case in the seemingly never-ending story of over-the-top policing. In this case Nicholson Gregoire was walking his dog when the police noticed the dog was not on a leash. He went inside his home to retrieve his ID, when the police broke in and a fight ensued.

NYC cops beat up black man inside his own home for walking his dog off leash

In dramatic footage provided to the New York Daily News, a Queens man had his head repeatedly bashed into a wall and punched during a dog walking incident that escalated out of control.

According to 25-year-old college student Nicholson Gregoire, he had just exited his home to walk his 5-month-old pit bull when police noticed the dog was not on a leash.

After he was asked for his ID, Gregoire reentered his home to retrieve it only to have the police repeatedly ring his door — causing the young man’s grandfather to open the door to them. After refusing to give the cops his ID — despite his grandfather’s pleas — the two cops rushed Gregoire and tackled him, setting off a wrestling match that was recorded by Gregoire’s girlfriend.

According to Gregoire’s attorney, Mark Crawford, “The police are alleging that my client answered the door and dragged them inside, to justify coming into the house. They had no basis to enter the premises.”

In the video, Gregoire can be seen fighting off the police while holding his ID in the air, saying, “Here it is.”

At that point it was too late, as the officers can be heard yelling, “Stop resisting,” a sentiment echoed by Gregoire’s girlfriend while she also pleaded with the two cops to stop.

“I’ve been watching the video over and over. I didn’t use any foul language. I don’t think I should have been arrested in my home for walking my dog. I was scared for my life. They have the guns,” Gregoire explained.

At one point, Gregoire put one officer in a chokehold, before he was wrestled down a staircase where the officers are joined by over a dozen other cops who attempt to pile on him.

As Gregoire holds onto a banister, one officer can be seen punching him repeatedly in the head before slamming his head into the wall, causing a fist-sized hole.

Gregoire was eventually subdued and taken into custody, charged with resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.

Texas the new Mississippi Burning?

Here we go again, with the same Police Department as arrested Sandra Bland on diaphanous reason.

This time the out of control cops taser a City Councilman in his front yard for the crime of coming outside to see what was going on in his front yard.

Texas councilman seen on video being tased by police

A video out of Prairie View, Texas, is raising questions about police use of force. A councilman is seen getting tased while on his knees and with his back to officers. Police say he was resisting arrest.

Jonathan Miller, 26, was on his knees with his hands by his side when he was tased on Thursday night by Prairie View Texas Police.

Before using the taser, police warned the councilman, several times, to put his hands behind his back.

“He’s going to have to tase you because you’re not doing like you’re supposed to,” an officer can be heard saying on camera before tasing him.

“I live here man, I live here,” Miller is heard saying after being tased.

“I told you to back off and you didn’t listen,” said one of the officers.

Officers arrived at the scene to question Miller’s fraternity brothers, who were outside of Miller’s home. Miller came out to ask what was going on.

“I’m not trying to be combative or anything,” Miller told officers before being tased.

“I understand you’re coming in at the tale end of it,” a female officer replied. “I just told you everything is okay. They already explained everything to me.”

But the situation escalated when another officer asked Miller to move away.

“Go over there before you go to jail,” a male officer said to Miller.

Miller just stands and looks at the officer.

He was tased, arrested and spent the night in jail…

Coincidentally, the female officer in the body camera video is the same one who transported Sandra Bland to a county jail after she was arrested in July. Bland made national headlines after authorities say she hanged herself while in jail.

If I were that Councilman, that Police Chief better have a really good car repair shop, and be real comfortable with what he is making now…Because it will be 2050 before he gets any new cars, or a raise.

Police Militarization – Cops Fire at Minivan Full of Kids

While I certainly agree the Mom in this case was way out of bounds…

Shooting at a minivan full of kids is something else entirely.

And as to the “Marijuana pipe”…If you believe that was in the van before they searched…. I got some oceanfront to sell you in Death Valley. She certainly IS guilty of evading the police, although I have to say fleeing from some “officer” shooting at a van full of kids isn’t exactly “criminal”.

Seems to me what you got in this case is criminals stopping a criminal.
