I once worked with a North-African lady, at a laundromat, who was immediately fired because she dared sit down during work. She sat down because it was the middle of August, it was as hot as summers get up here and this lady just wanted a breather.So basically the world had to practically implode for these dudes to lose their jobs....
I’m talking about all of these recent murders. It’s like one gets arrested here, one gets fired over here, they charge one of four, then they charge all of them. It’s an absolute disgrace. Like @Maracujá said the average citizen (especially black ones) get fired for the slightest misstep.Umm one dude thus far.
I misunderstood. My bad. (Do people still say that? Lol).I’m talking about all of these recent murders. It’s like one gets arrested here, one gets fired over here, they charge one of four, the.

According to this the police did not have the wrong home, Breonna’s ex was the drug dealer that they were looking for. The new boyfriend pulled out his gun because he was worried that the old boyfriend was breaking in. And according to her sister she knew that her ex was a drug dealer and dated him anyway. I don’t know why her sister gave this interview. It’s a mess.
Taylor's sister, Ju'Niyah Palmer, who was also her roommate and best friend, acknowledged that Taylor had a past relationship with Glover. But she said her sister wasn't involved in Glover's alleged drug operation and had forbade him from bringing that aspect of his life into her personal life.
"You cannot come up in my house with any drugs," she quoted her sister as telling Glover. "My sister live(s) here and I can't jeopardize her getting hurt because of what you do."
She said Taylor had nothing to hide in her apartment and would have been happy to prove that to the police if she'd known it was them at the door.
"If they were to come in and say, 'Hey, you sell drugs', she'd be like ... that's not who I am," Palmer said.
Both women faulted the police for Taylor's killing and said the officers involved should be charged with murder.
"We're going to fight this to the end," her aunt said. "This is our baby and she's going to get the justice she deserves."
In general I think that no-knock warrants are a bad idea and should almost never be used. I am glad that changes that have been made to laws concerning them. That being said, I would not expect to be safe in my own home if I was dating a drug dealer. I would expect trouble with other drug dealers, the police and probably the drug dealer boyfriend himself. There are a lot of women who have died or ended up in prison because of a drug dealing boyfriend or relative.The truth is what it is but the way that article is written causes me to think that they are looking for justification after the fact...Anything to take the focus off the fact that she was murdered unjustly in the home she had every right to feel safe in. The way they present the sister's interview along with mentioning the ex is nothing more than a distraction and it's disgraceful. There absolutely is an issue with black women being murdered in the safety of their homes whether it's Breonna Taylor or Tatianna Jefferson. That is the focus. I am not at all surprised they want us to shift our gaze to other crap. Nah the focus is still the right for black women to be safe at home. I hate when they do this smokescreen mess where they try to make the face of legit issues one they will do everything they can to discredit.
