#CrimingWhileWhite Opens A Prism On Police And Race

04 December 2014 - 03:15 AM

Instead of highlighting incidents of prejudice against people of color, #CrimingWhileWhite quickly zeroed in on white privilege, straight from the mouths of those who know it best.

The hashtag shines a bright light on an ugly truth -- see for yourself in the examples below.

The claims in the following tweets have not been independently verified by The Huffington Post.

Arrested for DUI, cop took me to drive through ATM so I'd have money to bail myself out. #crimingwhilewhite

 

Friend w/ suspended license gets flat tire/pulled over in someone else's car. Cop says he will use my license (passenger) #CrimingWhileWhite

 

#CrimingWhileWhite Arrested for stealing street signs xmas eve back in high school. Probation waived as it would interfere with DRAMA CLUB.

 

Exhaled blunt smoke in a cop's face as I opened my door and then told him he couldn't come in without a warrant. He left. #CrimingWhileWhite

 

My 13yo son and his friends were loitering at Walgreens recently. Only his black friend got searched for shoplifting. ~ #CrimingWhileWhite ~

 

Ticket for going 120. No license. Judge let me off. "You go to too good a school to be so dumb so I assume you aren't." #CrimingWhileWhite

 

I dined and dashed-cop found me at the movies, I paid the bill and he left. I was rude but not arrested and not killed. #CrimingWhileWhite

 

Got pulled over for a brake light out. Underage and drinking and blew over the limit. Cop let me walk to my friend's apt. #CrimingWhileWhite

 

I was 20. Stopped by cop at gas station. Under the influence & underage. He flirted with me then let me drive home. #CrimingWhileWhite

 

In high school I got in a 3 car wreck that might have been my fault. The cop told me it was the "illegal alien's" fault. #CrimingWhileWhite

 

Shoplifted when I was a teenager. Was apprehended but never charged because I looked "like a good kid" #CrimingWhileWhite

 

 

 

 

 


Florida police shoot at innocent unarmed man 15 TIMES in his driveway

04 December 2014 - 03:01 AM

A Florida sheriff says an unarmed man -- mistaken for a car thief and shot by deputies in his own driveway -- is both.

"He refused to obey commands and lunged at the deputies who fired their weapons 15 times to subdue him," they say.

 

Roy Middleton, 60, was hit by two of those rounds in his legs. He is in good condition at a Pensacola hospital after a metal rod was placed inside his shattered left leg.

Was Florida police shooting justified?

 

 
Sheriff defends controversial shooting

"The tragedy of this is the noncompliance to the directions of law enforcement officers," said Sheriff David Morgan of Escambia County, Florida. "Had that occurred we wouldn't be having this discussion. It's a tragedy all the way around. He is both a suspect and a victim."'Like a firing squad'

The bizarre story started Saturday around 2:30 a.m. as Middleton was returning home

Searching for a cigarette inside his White Lincoln Town Car, he appears to have been mistaken for a car thief by a concerned neighbor who called 911. Escambia County Sheriff's Deputy Jeremiah Meeks and Sgt. Matthew White responded to the call. This is where the story takes a fork in the road.

Middleton's family said he was not feeling well enough to discuss what happened to him.

But earlier this week, he told the Pensacola News Journal that he first thought someone was joking when they yelled at him to, "Get your hands where I can see them."

He said that as he was turning around to face deputies with his hands raised, they opened fire.

"It was like a firing squad. Bullets were flying everywhere," he told the News Journal.

I could imagine getting away with half of these stories....SMH I got a gun pulled out on me by an officer after he asked for my ID, as I reached for it he pulls out his gun because he said "I was reaching for my front pocket instead of my back pocket and I was moving too fast"


Military Veterans Send Urgent Letter to National Guard in Ferguson Telling them to Stan...

25 November 2014 - 04:42 PM

Hundreds of active duty US military and veterans have sent an open letter to Missouri National Guard members urging them to join Ferguson protesters, not fight against them.

 

The letter, signed by many veterans including dozens who fought in the Iraq war, was published on MarchForward.org and can be viewed below:

 

 

Text

To our brothers and sisters in the Missouri National Guard:

We are writing to you as active-duty U.S. service members and veterans, most of us having served in the Iraq war.

 

You have a choice you can make right now.

 

The whole world is watching the Ferguson police with disgust. They killed an unarmed, college-bound Black youth in broad daylight, and subsequently responded to peaceful, constitutionally-protected protests with extreme violence and repression.

Countless constitutional and human rights violations by these police have been documented over the course of the Ferguson protests; from attacking and threatening journalists, to using tear gas against peaceful protesters, including children.

Now, Governor Nixon has again activated the National Guard to “support law enforcement.” But you don’t have to follow their orders—you can stand with the protesters instead.

Our true duty

When we signed up, we swore an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States.

The police in Ferguson are violating that Constitution.

The First Amendment guarantees the right to free speech, freedom of assembly and freedom of the press.

These laws are, as we are taught our entire lives, our most cherished Constitutional rights—the whole basis for the “freedom” we are told makes us the greatest country on Earth.
