They Shoot Black Folks, Brown Folks…And Dogs

More trigger happy policing – this time shooting a family’s support dogs in their back yard!

And then lied about it.

The Cops are in trouble now! You see in America, you can shoot and murder unarmed Negroes…Shooting white folks dogs is a hanging offense!

 

Police say they shot two dogs who ‘charged’ at an officer. Then the homeowner posted her video.

 

Before the gunfire, the injured dogs and the accusations of police misconduct, the home security video makes one thing clear: In the gated back yard, the animals and the officer are surprised to see each other.

That Saturday night interaction — an officer-involved shooting that left two emotional-support dogs seriously injured — has embroiled the Minneapolis Police Department in controversy.

Video of the shooting recorded by an overhead security camera has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times, including by many animal lovers who are calling for the officer’s badge.

The dogs — Ciroc and Rocko — are both Staffordshire terriers that Jennifer LeMay and her children have had since they were puppies, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. They’re emotional support dogs for LeMay’s two sons, who both suffer from anxiety.

According to the Star Tribune, a friend had been dog-sitting while LeMay and her two daughters were camping. But the trio decided to come home early, and one daughter accidentally triggered the home’s alarm system Saturday night. They called the alarm company, which canceled the alert, but the police were already on their way.

On scene, one officer stayed at the front of the house, the newspaper reported, and another hopped the fence and began looking around the back.

There’s no sound in the video, which LeMay ultimately posted to Facebook.

In the video, the officer has already hopped the fence into the yard and briefly steps out of the camera frame as he investigates.

When he appears again, he’s backpedaling and his gun is raised. The reason for the retreat becomes obvious a few seconds later: A gray and white dog pads into the camera frame.

Its tail is wagging as it closes the distance to the officer, who has his back to the locked gate. The dog appears distracted and doesn’t beeline for the officer. As it closes to within a few feet, the officer fires a single shot. The dog jumps back, falls and rolls on the ground as it tries to get away.

Around that time, a second dog, Rocko, enters the frame. The officer fires at the second dog, and it sprints away.

The Minneapolis Police Department released a statement confirming that the incident happened but did not try to explain the officer’s thinking or rationale for firing. The department also didn’t identify the officer.

“Anytime an officer discharges their firearm in the line of duty there is an investigation that is completed by the Minneapolis Police Department’s Internal Affairs Unit,” the statement said. “We are in the process of reviewing the video posted online, as well as the officer’s body camera video. We have reached out to the owner of the dogs and will continue to do so during the investigation.”

A police report obtained by the Star Tribune said the dogs charged at the officer.

“While staging at the rear, two large-size pit bulls charged at officer,” the police report narrative said. “Officer dispatched the two dogs, causing them to run back into the residence.”

Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau released a statement Monday afternoon saying the department was “implementing updated mandatory training” about officer-dog encounters.

“I’ve watched the video, and as someone whose family has included dogs most of my life, I can say that it was difficult to watch,” the statement said. “This was an outcome that no one wanted. I’ve asked for an Internal Affairs use of force review. We are reaching out to the family to help them with the veterinary care bills to ensure that both dogs are adequately taken care of.”

Still, LeMay was livid. She declined to be interviewed for this story Monday afternoon, saying “I’ve lawyered up.” Her attorney did not immediately respond to a message.

But she raged about the incident on Facebook.

“Xfinity home central services and 4th precinct can expect to be seeing and hearing from my lawyer bright n early monday morning,” she said on Facebook. “I WILL GET F‑‑‑‑‑‑ JUSTICE FOR MY KIDS! THERE IS NO PENNY OR DOLLAR VALUE TOO WHAT THESE BABIES MEAN TO MY FAMILY, EXTENDED FAMILY, FRIENDS OR ANYONE WHOS LIVES THEYVE BRIGHTENED DAILY! #knowthat”

She told Minneapolis CBS-affiliate WCCO that she’d racked up thousands of dollars in veterinary bills and posted pictures of her dogs’ conditions: Ciroc wrapped in a cone and with bandages on an injured jaw; Rocko with surgical drainage tubes on a stitched belly.

Officer Injured in Louisiana Shooting Sues BLM

Unless the Judge is a Trumpazoid, I can’t see this getting beyond a preliminary…

Officer Injured In Baton Rouge Shooting Sues Black Lives Matter Leaders

DeRay McKesson and four other Black Lives Matter leaders were named as defendants.

A police officer wounded in a shooting rampage in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, last year that left three officers dead sued Black Lives Matter movement leaders on Friday, accusing them of inciting violence that spurred the attack.

The lawsuit filed in a U.S. district court in Louisiana named DeRay McKesson and four other Black Lives Matter leaders as defendants and sought at least $75,000 in damages.

It came on the one-year anniversary of one of the deadliest days in modern U.S. history for law enforcement. On July 7, 2016, a black man angered by what he saw as deadly racial bias in U.S. policing launched a downtown Dallas sniper attack, killing five officers deployed at a protest decrying police shootings of black men.

McKesson was not immediately available for comment and Black Lives Matter leaders have denied accusations that their movement promotes violence against police.

About 10 days after the Dallas shooting, a decorated ex-U.S. Marine sergeant opened fire on police in Baton Rouge, killing three officers.

Baton Rouge had been hit by waves of protests after two police officers earlier that month killed a black man, Alton Sterling, under questionable circumstances. The incident was caught on video and sparked national debate.

The officer wounded in Baton Rouge, who was not named in the lawsuit, was shot by “a person violently protesting against police, and which violence was caused or contributed to by the leaders of and by ‘BLACK LIVES MATTER’,” the filing said.

Gavin Long, the black gunman who killed the Baton Rouge officers and was later shot dead, identified himself as a member of an African-American offshoot of the anti-government, mostly white Sovereign Citizen Movement, documents showed. Last year, McKesson and two other activists sued the Baton Rouge police department and other officials over the arrests of nearly 200 demonstrators during mostly peaceful protests over police killings.

A Police Officer’s Response to Philandro Castile Murder

This in the letter section of a Minneapolis Paper. It points our that Officer Yanez could have retreated – and should have, if there was any question in his mind.

There was nothing about the stop that indicated that Castile posed any danger to the public. The “crime” he was stopped for was a basic traffic ticket – and in a lot of jurisdictions, would result in no fine if the driver went and got the issue fixed

 

Letters: ‘This shouldn’t have happened,’ cop says of Castile shooting

I have been a police officer for 19 years. I love my job and serving my community. I have learned over the course of my career to never assume anything. As I watched the events unfold on July 6, 2016, on a Facebook Live feed, I thought that there must be more that happened. There must have been such a threat that wasn’t captured on this video, that forced Officer Yanez to feel his only option was to shoot into a vehicle with a child in the back seat.

Over the past two days, I have listened to the audio interviews. I have read the documents. And then I watched the dash cam video. And it broke me. Officer Yanez was in a position that if he perceived a threat, he could have disengaged. He could have taken other steps to ensure everyone’s safety, and not have forced this outcome.

Shooting a seat-belted man, with a child in the back seat, was not the only option. Until those of us who wear the badge are willing to stand up and speak out when we see things that are wrong, and lead hard conversations, how can we ever expect change? How can we ever expect to rebuild trust within our communities? Barbecues and pick-up basketball games are nice, but that’s not going to do it.

So today, I stand up and speak out, even if it means standing alone. To the family of Philando Castile, to those that loved him, and to everyone who watched that video and felt broken inside, I am sorry. This shouldn’t have happened. His life mattered.

Black Cop Warns Black Men of White Cops

It isn’t like we haven’t seen a lot of evidence of some white cops escalating what should be a routine stop to murder. In combination with stacked juries and corrupt state prosecutors who protect bad cops from even murder prosecution, this creates a situation for increased violence instead of de escalation.

The problem here, at least to my view, is in large part the training given to cops to use massive force in response to every situation. This approach, instead of any sort of walking a situation down into a non-violent conflict is exacerbated by white cop prejudices and racism.

This black cop who let the cat out of the bag…Better watch his back.

That John Brown Moment – 2017

Bleeding Kansas” , the open war between anti- and pro- slavery groups started when Pro-slavery forces moved into Kansas and attempted to steal the vote to make Kansas a slave state.

It marked a turning point because Abolitionists who were the victims of slaver violence and terrorism began to fight back resulting in virtual Civil Wars along the Kansas Missouri border.

Substitute pro-slavery for today’s Republicans – and see if this doesn’t sound familiar –

Through the Missouri Compromise of 1820, Congress kept a tenuous balance of political power between North and South. In May 1854, the Kansas–Nebraska Act, created from unorganized Indian lands and territories of Kansas and Nebraska, permitted residency by U.S. citizens, who were to determine their state’s slavery status and seek admission to the Union. Immigrants supporting both sides of the question arrived in Kansas to establish residency and gain the right to vote. However, Kansas Territory officials were appointed (1854) by the pro-slavery administration of PresidentFranklin Pierce (in office 1853–1857), and thousands of non-resident pro-slavery Missourians entered Kansas with the goal of winning elections. They captured territorial elections, sometimes by fraud and intimidation. In response, Northern abolitionist elements flooded Kansas with “free-soilers.” Anti-slavery Kansas residents wrote the first Kansas Constitution (1855) and elected the Free State legislature in Topeka; this stood in opposition to the pro-slavery government in Lecompton. The two Territorial governments increased as well as symbolized the strife of Bleeding Kansas…

It was rumored in the South that thousands of Northerners were arriving in Kansas. Believing these rumors, in November 1854, thousands of armed pro-slavery men known as “Border Ruffians” or “southern yankees”, mostly from Missouri, poured into the Kansas Territory and swayed the vote in the election for a non-voting delegate to Congress in favor of pro-slavery candidate John Whitfield.[4] The following year a Congressional committee investigating the election reported that 1729 fraudulent votes were cast compared to 1114 legal votes. In one location only 20 of the 604 voters were residents of the Kansas Territory. In another 35 were residents and 226 non-residents.

Not much different from the situation America is in today.

John Brown, who had led anti-slavery forces in Kansas led a raid against the Harper’s Ferry West Virginia Armory in 1859. While the raid failed, and John Brown was executed…It established that Abolitionists would no longer tolerate slaver abuses and crimes, and would strike back.

In America today there are several hate attacks by Trump’s supporters against minorities, LBGT people, immigrants, and progressives. Peaceful protests are increasingly met with violence.

From the headlines as of the last two weeks –

  1. ‘Not racist’ member of ‘White Privilege Club’ tries to run over Trumpcare protesters with motorcycle
  2. White St. Louis cop shot black off-duty officer — then claimed it was a ‘friendly fire’ incident  
  3. An unarmed black police officer shot in his front yard after identifying himself as a policeman by a white officer.
  4. Trump administration cuts funding to group fighting neo-Nazis
  5. The Philando Castile jury was stacked with pro-gun, pro-cop, middle-aged white people
  6. Texas man charged with hate crime for burning mosque
  7. TEXAS MADE ATTACKING COPS A HATE CRIME; THESE STATES COULD BE NEXT
  8. Man charged with hate crime in phone threat to Muslim-American …
  9. Vandalism At Naperville Deli Leads To Hate Crime Investigation
  10. Amnesty calls for NI laws to be bolstered as hate crimes soar
  11. Central NY hate crime assault came after men were asked to get off …
  12. Kansas man charged with hate crime in killing of Indian
  13. Man charged with 2 Bellevue hate crimes
  14. Fulton Mayor: Hate crime suspects previously made a threat on my …

A good summary of the attacks by Trump supporters and right wing haters is here.

This just in…

Ray Tensing trial: Jury deadlocks, mistrial declared in Ohio cop’s murder retrial

This list doesn’t include those not charged, or those attacks on whites by alt-right and neo-nazi Trump white wingers. Right wing sites continually use language encouraging violence against the left.

The rise of the Second KKK in the US only abated when the victims began to shoot back,

Was the shooting of Republican Scalese our “John Brown” moment?

I hope so.
