BLM and Wichita Police Hold a Cookout

This is a big difference from what we see on the racist Faux News, where ex-cops are paid to berate the BLM Movement, call them murders and terrorists…

Never mind that many of the ex-cops Faux News pays to appear are ex-Cops because of their own criminal activities. Drag in a few paid Lawn Jockeys, and you have the universe of Fox News racism.

The Wichita Police took what I would call and “adult” way to approach things. Why not invite the BLM protesters to a cookout, where Cops and the community could sit down and hold an honest conversation. For a lot of black folks, especially in Urban areas, this provides an opportunity to meet and get to know local Police on a personal level – instead of when they have you pulled over for something. For Police, it is an opportunity to meet the ordinary folks who make up the majority of people in the community.

Black Lives Matter protesters have friendly cookout with Wichita police

When a group of Kansas police officers spotted members of the Black Lives Matter movement protesting near a highway last week, they didn’t try to put a stop to it.

Instead, the Wichita officers suggested holding a cookout, where members of the community and cops could gather for food, dance and an open discussion. The Black Lives Matter protesters happily agreed.

Now the city is being praised for its response — with many people suggesting communities across the country should follow their example.

Conlee Borchard, whose fiancé is in the Wichita Police Academy, said protesters stood in line on Sunday and waited patiently to ask officials, including Wichita Police Chief Gordon Ramsay, questions.

“They asked hard questions, such as, ‘What are you doing to make sure our officers are held accountable?’ ‘What do we do if we have a complaint against an officer?'” Borchard told CBS News.

When the Q&A ended, the dancing began, and Borchard captured an inspiring sight on camera. A video of an energetic officer doing the “Cha Cha Slide” with Wichita residents went viral with more than 14 million views on Facebook.

Some applauded the heartwarming video as a welcome alternative to the tensions escalating between communities and police across the U.S.

“Other states are rioting, and killing…Were eating BBQ and dancing with the police!” one Facebook user commented.

“So proud of our hometown for making a ‘slide’ in the right direction,” another replied.

“It felt like coming into the future,” she explained. “In such a short amount of time there was so much restoration. Everyone walked away with hope.”

In a Facebook Live video posted on Monday, Chief Ramsay thanked everyone for making the “First Steps Community Cookout” a success.

“I really want to thank those who came out and were a part of this; it can’t just be the police that make these changes,” Ramsay said in the video. “It takes two parties to make a healthy relationship.”

Texas Judge Beats Daughter who has Cerebral Palsey for Downloading

This is utterly and completely out of control. This Judge needs a bit of his own “justice”…

Judge Under Fire After Daughter Posts Video of Beating

A Texas judge is facing a police investigation along with death threats after his daughter posted a video of a severe beating she endured in 2004, reports KRIS TV. The disturbing seven-minute clip has racked up more than 600,000 views on YouTube after Hillary Adams shared it on Reddit. “My father’s harassment was getting really bad, so I decided to finally publish the video that I had been sitting on for seven years,” she tells the TV station. The response from Aransas County Court Judge William Adams: “It happened years ago. … I apologized.” He added, “It’s not as bad as it looks on tape.”

The tape shows a screaming Hillary getting struck repeatedly with a belt, apparently because she had disobeyed her father by downloading music off the Internet. “She has had ataxic cerebral palsy from birth that led her to a passion for technology, which was strictly forbidden by her father’s backwards views,” says the text accompanying the video. Reddit has a “strong protective streak,” notes Gawker, and its users have quickly spread the story.

Update of Texas Judge Story

 

Police launched an investigation Wednesday into a Texas family law judge whose daughter posted a YouTube video of him savagely beating her with a belt during a tirade several years ago when she was a teenager…

The nearly 8-minute video, viewed more than 950,000 times as of late Wednesday, shows Aransas County Court-at-Law Judge William Adams lashing his then-16-year-old daughter in the legs more than a dozen times and growing increasingly irate while she screams and refuses to turn over on a bed to be beaten. The video was uploaded last week.

“Lay down or I’ll spank you in your (expletive) face,” Adams screams. His daughter, Hillary, wails and pleads for him to stop…

Hillary Adams said she set up the camera because she knew “something was about to happen.” Toward the end of the video, her father shouts that he plans to beat the girl “into submission” and rants about having a computer in the house and the problems it causes. The video ends with the adult woman telling her to leave the room and sleep on the sofa.

Elected in 2001, Adams draws an annual salary of $138,055 as Aransas County’s top judge. He dealt with at least 349 family law cases in the past year, nearly 50 of which involved state caseworkers seeking to determine whether parents were fit to raise their children…

Hillary Adams’ parents divorced in 2007 after 22 years of marriage, according to court records. The divorce petition states that “the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities,” but a counter-petition filed by Adams’ ex-wife states that the divorce was filed under grounds of “mental cruelty.”

Court records show that the couple had another daughter who was 6 at the time.
