Nvm. It wouldn’t let me upload my pics
I agree and Breonna's thread doesn't get as much traffic as this one. I don't want her thread to go to the second page. Black women are also being killed and assaulted. Not trying to create distance, but let's advocate for all of us with the same rigor.We gone need a sticky to keep track of all of these deaths yall. In the midst of our despair they still killing us. We must continue to push this movement for all it has to offer. There has NEVER been a moment in time like this and it might not come back again so press on my people! Forward ever, backwards NEVER!!

I want to apologize directly to Mr. Juanillo. There are not enough words to describe how truly sorry I am for being disrespectful to him last Tuesday when I made the decision to question him about what he was doing in front of his home. I should have minded my own business.
The last 48 hours has taught me that my actions were those of someone who is not aware of the damage caused by being ignorant and naive to racial inequalities. When I watch the video I am shocked and sad that I behaved the way I did. It was disrespectful to Mr. Juanillo and I am deeply sorry for that. I did not realize at the time that my actions were racist and have learned a painful lesson. I am taking a hard look at the meaning behind white privilege and am committed to growing from this experience. I would love to have coffee with Mr. Juanillo in our neighborhood so I can apologize in person and share a dialogue where I can continue to leam and grow and be a better person.
I just watched new video footage from the floyd incident it's terribly sad . I lost my appetite it feels like my whole soul just left my body. They had him dead and still handcuffed on the ambulance stretcher.
They're both wrong in this video. The manager, who is apathetic and resistant to the BLM 'message'. The employee (the guy in the video) who knows she's apathetic and he is up in her face about it, via the BLM mask. He should have gone to corporate, sharing his feelings before putting his mask on display.
You know what... just listening to her voice is an irritant. First of all, she could care less about George Floyd, personally or otherwise. I’m tired of the ones with the fake outcries over this. Approaching this man doesn’t prove she really cares. She’s just running her mouth.On one hand I get it but on the other hand Karen would need to get up out my face. I want to see more videos like this for George Zimmerman though. This guy is complicit but he looks like a “nice person” that would do what he’s told even if it’s wrong. Kinda like a poor idiot that follows the crowd because he’s too afraid to speak up. Being that he was a few days new to the job he didn’t stand a chance of doing the right thing in George or anyone else’s situation based on the personality vibes I’m getting.
This is exactly why we need reform of police unions and qualified immunity. They are mad because he used excessive force, killed a man, and was charged. The punishment didn't fit the crime. What happened to foot pursuits? They could have impounded the car and still arrested him even if it wasn't that night that's what body cams are for. That thin blue line needs to go because I don't think you're a good cop if you allow bad cops to commit crimes and you don't speak up.Apparently, Atlanta policemen are suffering from sudden cases of “Blue Flu” and calling out sick. This is not good.
Atlanta (CNN) Hours after a fired police officer was charged with felony murder for fatally shooting a man in the back, Atlanta police officers are not responding to calls in three of the department's six zones, multiple sources within the Atlanta Police Department told CNN on Wednesday evening.
I look at it this way. If any harm / danger comes to Derek Chauvin, an African American guard cannot be blamed nor suspect. Seriously, not everything is against them; it's a blessing to be safeguarded from blame, because should something happen to Chauvin, 'they' were no where around the scene of the crime. Some 'doors' are meant to be closed to protect us. This is one of them.Minnesota jail accused of bias in allowing only white officers to guard Derek Chauvin
The discrimination complaint says corrections personnel of color were barred from the floor where the former officer accused in George Floyd's death was held.

Eight people of color who work as correctional officers in Minnesota filed a discrimination lawsuit Friday alleging that they were barred from guarding or being on the same floor as Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer charged with murder in the death of George Floyd.
When Chauvin was initially charged with third-degree murder May 29, he was taken to the Ramsey County Jail, where, eight complainants say, the superintendent segregated the correctional officers so Chauvin was guarded only by white people.
Bonnie Smith, the attorney for the eight guards, told NBC News on Sunday that her clients were told that they had to leave the fifth floor, where Chauvin would be held. All those told to leave were people of color, and they were replaced by white officers, Smith said.

The officers were "humiliated and debased," said Smith, who said the decision made them feel as though they weren't trusted by their supervisors
"My clients came to work that day fully prepared to do their work. They are highly trained, experienced professionals in dangerous and volatile situations and were just as well equipped as their white counterparts to perform their work duties on May 29," she said. "The fact that they weren't allowed to do so has devastated them."
In the suit, the clients are seeking monetary compensation, training on racial bias for all jail employees and a formal and public apology, as well as for the supervisors responsible for the decision to be disciplined.
"Their primary goal is to make sure it doesn't happen again," Smith said.
The Ramsey County Sheriff's Office said only three officers were reassigned for a total of 45 minutes.
"Recognizing that the murder of George Floyd was likely to create particularly acute racialized trauma, I felt I had an immediate duty to protect and support employees who may have been traumatized and may have heightened ongoing trauma by having to deal with Chauvin," Ramsey County Jail Superintendent Steve Lydon said in a statement. "Out of care and concern, and without the comfort of time, I made the decision to limit exposure to employees of color to a murder suspect who could potentially aggravate those feelings."
Smith said Lydon's response "appears to be an after-the-fact justification," adding that her clients "never asked for protection" and that Lydon's "care and concern" were not mentioned to the officers while they were being segregated.
"If he is really trying to protect my clients from racial trauma, he shouldn't be segregating them on the basis of skin color," Smith said. "He isn't preventing racial trauma — he is creating it."
The sheriff's office said that while it reviews what happened, Lydon's responsibilities have been modified and it has installed an interim supervisor.
Whoever’s behind this needs to caught and dragged. These are not suicidal incidents.Has anyone read about the recent hangings of black men? They claim they are suicides but I don’t believe it. This is crazy...
This is not an excuse But I have this gut feeling his intent was not to go along with the killing of George Floyd not knowing what Chauvin set out to do. It was like his second day on the job but still at anytime he could have said stop and or refuse to participate.On one hand I get it but on the other hand Karen would need to get up out my face. I want to see more videos like this for George Zimmerman though. This guy is complicit but he looks like a “nice person” that would do what he’s told even if it’s wrong.
