Well, a judge ordered her to be jailed until she complies with the court ruling. I don't see the point of it personally. All this will do is make her a martyr of sorts to other bigots who support her flawed beliefs. I'm sure there is already a gofundme being set up in her name, which will of course funnel thousands of dollars from gullible people just wanting to stick it to gay marriage.
The brotherhood "keep quiet" mentality within police departments that shields this sort of thing is very real, and concerning. Also, the reality of situations like this finally being brought to the forefront these days makes one wonder just how common this may have been in years past before the prevalence of social media. Which in turn directly places everything we thought we knew about our police departments in doubt. It's truly sad.
You sought me out to quote dude, not the other way around. If you wish to have a dialogue other than "no need to get defensive", you are welcome to. I typed that up pretty fast, could have worded it better admittedly.
I definitely can see your argument about pretending to point a gun being a bad look obviously. Other than that, I really don't see anything to remotely get up in arms over here. Of course if it were me mentoring a 15 year old kid, I would stress to him the importance of dangerous stereotypes that are becoming all too common these days. Yes there are some idiots out there who unfortunately do reinforce certain stereotypes, but for the most part, there is an even larger group out there who automatically see any group of black guys together, and think trouble just has to be brewing.
Knowing what I know about Newton as an individual that he has shown to our community throughout these last several years, I really don't give a poo who he takes a picture with. It's just something else for the neanderthals in our fan base, and around the country to showcase their outright bigotry towards. Much like the Panthers Spanish language video social media responses that were shown here. This country still has a long ways to go.
