Why the creeping militarisation of our police has experts worried

From “Down Under” but they speak on all the English speaking countries militarizing…. funny how YTs notice it now when it’s been an occupying army in the hood since slavery was ended….

Australian police are increasingly being “militarised”.

Front-line officers in Queensland and Victoria, and specialist units across the country, are being trained in military-style tactics and thinking. Continue reading

Chicago Cops Use Social Media to Track Grieving Families of Gunshot Victims

Only naive people are surprised…..

It was below freezing in Chicago on December 12, 2017 when a 23-year-old man was fatally shot in the abdomen while standing on the sidewalk. In the days following the victim’s death, the Chicago Police Department (CPD) gathered information about the victim on social media. Documents obtained by OneZero indicate that the CPD also went one step further, collecting social media content from individuals who were publicly mourning and grieving for the loss of the 23-year-old man. “I can’t stop crying…” one of the posts collected by the CPD reads, “why would this happen.” Continue reading

Chicago Police Officer William Whitley, convicted of sex trafficking, left Polaroids of nude women on his dashboard: lawsuit – Chicago Sun-Times

Chicago’s finest at work eh?

A box full of Polaroid photos of “nude and scantily clad women” was once found on the dashboard of a Chicago Police vehicle used by an officer who would later admit he paid young girls for sex before landing a 25-year prison sentence.

How The 1919 Chicago Race Riot Created Black Street Gangs

It’s a reason gangs started in Chicago….

On Sunday, the highly-anticipated HBO series Watchmen set the internet ablaze with America’s shocked reactions to a little-known incident frequently called the Tulsa Race Riots. The bombing of Black Wall Street is common knowledge to a large percentage of black folks (we’ve written about it at least 20 times, including here, here and here), but apparently it’s news to a lot of people who prefer a whitewashed, sanitized version of American history.

“The favela (slum) is a field of extermination of black people,” says Rio-based community leader

All ghettos and favelas are designed to kill us off without most of the public noticing…. as in Brazil as it is in AmeriKKKa….

When I first starting researching the history of brothers and sisters in Brazil at the end of the 20th century and beginning of the 21st, I honestly thought titles of books by the great Abdias do Nascimento such as Brazil: Mixture or Massacre or The Genocide of the black Brazilian were exaggerations. Now, nearly two decades later, I see these books as the grim prognosis of a reality that has been in the works for more than a century. The more I dig, the more I find evidence that the extinction of the black Brazilian is an ongoing work in progress. Continue reading
