Holy. Fucking. SHIT.

Sabrina Reid just put me on to a police dash cam video from South Carolina regarding an incident that occurred between Levar Jones and a state trooper on September 4, 2014.

The video shows a state trooper pulling up to a gas station as Jones gets out of his car.

The trooper yells for Jones to produce his license.

Jones bends into his car to get his license and the trooper opens fire and strikes the man.

Jones, in shock, backs away from the car WITH HIS HANDS IN THE AIR.

In a stunning act of inhumanity, THE TROOPER CONTINUES TO FIRE UPON JONES—WHO CLEARLY HAS HIS HANDS UP.

Jones falls to the ground and the fucking trooper yells “Get on the ground!”

The wounded Jones, already on the fucking ground, says to the trooper, “I was getting my license. You said ‘get [my] license.”

The trooper continues to treat Jones as though he were guilty of some heinous crime, talking to him as though he had already been tried, convicted, and sentenced.

He walks over to Jones and tells him to put his hands behind his back.

Jones asks, “What did I do??”

The trooper ignores him and continues to tell him to put his hands behind his back.

“Are you hit?” the trooper asks.

“I think so,” the confused Jones says. “I can’t feel my legs.”

“Why did you shoot me?” Jones asks.

“Well, you dove head first back into your car.”

NO HE DIDN’T. HE FOLLOWED YOUR ORDERS TO RETRIEVE HIS LICENSE.

“I was telling you to get out of your car,” the trooper said.

Yes, but he SHOT Jones at CLOSE RANGE even before Jones had the chance to COMPLY with the BRAND NEW ORDER the trooper gave to get out of the car. He literally FIRED ON JONES WHILE HE WAS TELLING HIM TO GET OUT OF THE CAR.

And why? Because the man unbuckled his seat belt before coming to a full stop in the gas station.

Yes, y’all.

This was all over a seat belt.

….

Look, I’m fucking tired.

I’m tired of marching.

I’m tired of praying.

I’m tired of talking.

I’m tired of singing spirituals.

I’m tired.

BREAKING: Peaceful Protesters In Ferguson MO Get Pummeled By Police Officers After Their Chief Marched With Protesters

  • I think the PD is aggressively attacking protestors because they assume & no longer gives a damn
  • Chief Jackson did this. His officers did this. Women were attacked. He said he was marching with us. Lies..he set us up
  • And Chief Jackson didn’t do ANYTHING to stop the attacks and mayhem. DID NOTHING!
  • LOTS of cops out right now. A short clash with the police after arrests were made. Live Feed Here:

Fuck the police.  Seriously.  All this to protect a murderer.

While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.

You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.

Darren Hunt of Utah

The murder of young Black Men by police continues.

oh for fucks SAKE

Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…

http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/58409680-78/family-hunt-moss-police.html.csp

He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.

and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…

Exactly! This is evil.

Damn. Niggas can’t even cosplay anymore? I would love to see the cosplay community say something about this but that definitely won’t happen

Also: this paper is edited by a clown. It should’ve been in the first fucking paragraph that this dude was cosplaying. I’m reading this shit wondering why the fuck this negro is walking down the street with a sword and obvious answer is hidden almost at the en of the article.

This dude was cosplaying.

He was dressed up in a costume.

Should all black people just stay home on Halloween this year?

Friendly reminder that the police shot a black cosplayer in the back

Malcolm X: Our History Was Destroyed By Slavery 

on March 17, 1963 in Chicago.

see how little we get taught about history - I never had any idea why Malcolm X used the ‘X’. 

How come I didn’t know this

Also that crusty old white man called the named ‘gifted’. Jesus.
