About Me

Married, 2 kids a boy and a girl. Two dogs, both boxers, a cat that I'm pretty sure is at least part maine coon..who knows. I found him in my driveway freezing and starving. I enjoy reading, music, I watch entirely too much tv and Republicans make me sick. I think family is the most important thing. Anything else you wanna know, just ask. :-)

Carmelo Anthony Makes Public Stance Against Police Brutality

Carmelo Anthony has joined the small ranks of sports stars to speak out against the heinous acts of police brutality that have occurred within the last week — followed by an act of terror against police in Dallas, Texas.

Whereas many athletes have been slow to speak, Carmelo is calling on his fellow sportsmen to stand up and rise together to use their recognition and influence to denounce what’s happening and work toward solutions. He shared a photo of Muhammad Ali, Jim Brown and Lew Alcindor seated together the Ali Summit 45 years ago along with the following statement to his Instagram account on Friday:

This photo: UPDATED WITH MORE INFO

It is a remarkable picture. A single woman stands in the roadway, feet firmly planted. She poses no obvious threat. She is there to protest the excessive force which Baton Rouge police allegedly deploy against the city’s black citizens. She stands in front of police headquarters, on Saturday. And she is being hauled away by officers who look better prepared for a war than a peaceful protest.

There are images that are impossible to forget, searing themselves into our collective consciousness. One man staring down a column of tanks in Tiananmen Square. A high school student attacked by police dogs in Birmingham, Alabama. This is such a photo.

Once seen, it cannot be unseen.

The Baton Rouge police department lists the virtues it seeks to instill in its officers. Protection. Obligation. Leadership. Integrity. Courage. Excellence. I wonder what these officers thought about as they hauled her away.

powerful!!!!


UPDATE;

As some demonstrators moved and others yelled at officers, one woman stood silently on the roadway and resolutely refused to budge.

“I photographed someone arguing with an officer and then I looked over my shoulder and saw her there and she had every intention of not moving,” he said. “She just stood there and made her stand. I was just happy to be able to capture something like that.”

The woman was quickly detained, Bachman said, but when he checked his camera he knew had captured a remarkable photo of her defiant act of peaceful civil disobedience.


“She was there, she wasn’t resisting, and she had every intention of not moving.

Kansas cop gets fired for sickening, random online attack against black woman’s child in aftermath

of Dallas shootings.

A white Kansas cop who threatened a random black woman’s young daughter over Facebook amidst racial tensions between police and civilians has been fired. Rodney Lee Wilson, who had been an officer with Overland Park Police Department for more than a year, lashed out at LaNaydra Williams online, despite no obvious connection between the two.

Having found pictures of Williams’ five-year-old daughter India visible on her Facebook profile, Lee launched an astonishing rant in which he appeared to threaten the girl’s life.

Referencing the Black Lives Matter movement, Lee wrote: ‘We’ll see how much her life matters soon… better be careful leaving your info in the open where she can be found.

‘Hold her close tonight, it’ll be the last time.’



....Williams added that she has never been to Overland Park, has no connection to Kansas, and has no idea how Wilson found her Facebook page.

She also claims that after contacting Williams’ superiors she was initially told that his account had been hacked, despite the post being deleted.

However, the police later backtracked, confessed that Wilson had been behind the message, and dismissed him from duty.

Speaking to KSHB.com she added: ‘I felt horrified because I don’t know these people. And then when I click on they guy’s, Rodney Lee’s, picture I see he’s a cop.

‘Hit the ground!’: Trump supporter pulls gun on Black Lives Matter rally in Portland

...Strickland held a tripod-mounted video camera in his left hand. His right hand grabbed near his waistband.

Seconds later, facing the crowd, he pulled a Glock 27 from a holster on his right side. Assuming a wide stance and grasping the gun with both hands, he swung it from side to side, bellowing, “Back off!”

Kerensa claims, “Strickland takes pictures of women and minorities, puts them online with their names and addresses. He stalks them and harasses them.”

Kerensa said before anyone reached him, Strickland put his hand on his gun, which had been hidden under a rain jacket.

“He swept the crowd a few times with the gun,” said Kerensa. “I saw him take out the regular clip and slot in an extra-capacity magazine. I saw him chamber a round.”

For a moment, it seemed he might open fire as protesters scrambled away and two journalists sprinted toward him.

Strickland alleges he was shoved before he reached for his gun and repeatedly stated, “I feared for my life, that’s why I pulled out my gun.” Kerensa disputed that, claiming no one touched him before, and that he was only lightly pushed away after he grabbed the gun.

When reporters caught up with Strickland, he appeared panicked. The gun was still visible, and at least five rows of bullets could be counted in the magazine sticking out of the gun’s handle in the magazine. Strickland said they were 9mm bullets.

Bernie Sanders on Chris Hayes confirms...

talks about possible endorsement...

Bernie Sanders confirmed on Wednesday night that he is in discussions with the Hillary Clinton campaign about a potential endorsement of her candidacy, adding that he anticipates a “coming together” of the two campaigns.

Appearing on MSNBC’s “All In With Chris Hayes,” Sanders was pointedly asked whether mounting reports that he is finally getting ready to endorse his longstanding Democratic primary rival had any validity.

“You’re not denying the report that there are talks about a possible endorsement?” Hayes asked.

Sanders replied: “That’s correct.”

There Will Be Blood

At a Donald Trump rally, supporters call for the death of Hillary Clinton.

They’ve got murder on their minds now.

At the previous Donald Trump rally I’d attended, in Greensboro, North Carolina, Hillary Clinton was called a “bitch” more times that I could count. “Trump That Bitch” was the most common refrain. They shouted it from the rafters, wore T-shirts emblazoned with it. But at a rally in Raleigh on Tuesday night, a new cry rang out:

“Hang that bitch!”

The anger among Trump supporters toward the presumptive Democratic nominee apparently had escalated in the past month, perhaps especially so after FBI Director James Comey announced on Tuesday morning that he would not seek criminal charges against Clinton over her email scandal. This was a travesty against justice, obvious proof of corruption. As Trump said on stage, “Today is the best evidence ever, that we’ve seen, that our system is absolutely, totally rigged.”

Clinton might have escaped criminal justice, but this mob had a different kind of justice in mind. Trumping that bitch was no longer good enough. Now they wanted her dead.

*snip*

The first time I heard someone yell “Hang that bitch!” was during a speech by Trump policy advisor Stephen Miller. I heard “hang that bitch” at least twice more during Trump’s speech, remarks that led to the crowd’s calls for Comey to be fired. Trump alleged that former President Bill Clinton had tampered with the FBI’s investigation, and that Hillary had used her position as secretary of state to line her pockets and singlehandedly destabilize the Middle East.

While Trump made the latter case, a man stood up and yelled, “Hang Hillary!”

“Yeah!” another shouted.

A smattering of applause.

Nearly six years have passed since I last heard, in person, somebody call for the death of a politician. I was at a Tea Party informational meeting at the Greene County Fairgrounds outside Bloomfield, Indiana, back when Obamacare was still a dirty word. Speakers equated President Barack Obama with Mao Zedong and Joseph Stalin. They alluded to the Great Famine and the Great Purge. If Obama had his way, they argued, we should all be ready to report to work camps. After the presentation, I listened to farmers and factory workers alike wonder whether to take up arms and march on Washington. If the time had come, as one speaker put it, to “refresh the tree of liberty with the blood of tyrants.”

There was a similar mood at Trump’s rally in Raleigh—the notion that extraordinary circumstances call for extraordinary means. For bloodshed. Trump himself implied as much when he invoked Saddam Hussein approvingly. “Saddam Hussein was a bad guy, right?” Trump said. “He was a bad guy, a really bad guy. But you know what he did well? He killed terrorists.”
