Interesting how we’re always hearing how shameful and irresponsible it is to be a teen mom.
But we never hear the same messages directed at teen dads.
Or even the words “teen dad”.
It’s almost like society demonizes women’s sexuality and sexual choices while absolving men of all sexual responsibility and judgement.
Officer Daniel Pantaleo, an eight-year NYPD veteran, and an officer who has been with the force for four years taken off the street after man dies in custody following arrest using ‘chokehold’
Partial video of the encounter obtained by the New York Daily News shows the 6-foot-3, 350-pound (1.9-meter, 159-kilogram) Mr Garner becoming irate and refusing to be handcuffed as officers tried to arrest him on suspicion of selling untaxed, loose cigarettes on a sidewalk.
The video then shows one of the officers placing Mr Garner in what Police Commissioner William Bratton said on Friday appeared to be a chokehold. The tactic, which can be fatal, is prohibited by departmental policy.
In the video of the arrest, Mr Garner, who has been arrested for selling illegal cigarettes numerous times in recent years, says he hasn’t done anything wrong.
"Every time you see me, you want to mess with me. I’m tired of it. It stops today," Mr Garner shouts. "I’m minding my business. Please just leave me alone."
As four officers bring him down, Mr Garner is heard gasping, “I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe!” The video shows one officer using his hands to push Mr Garner’s face into the sidewalk.
Prosecutors and internal affairs detectives are investigating the death of the father of six and grandfather of two; authorities believe he suffered a heart attack. Mr De Blasio has called the circumstances of his death “very troubling.”
Another stop and frisk fatality, and death to the black man. NYPD get your fucking shit together and please, almighty judging party, PLEASE dish out the appropriate punishments to those with the blood in their hands (though I am highly pessimistic because the second police officer involved is still allowed to retain his gun and badge, but seriously get that shit out of there as well he should’ve stopped his goddamn colleague).
This is an authorised system built to hunt and shut down POC like animals who need to be tamed. The bias towards targetting non-whites is extremely stark and it pains me, even as a complete outsider, to see news of such incidents.
For those shit hags who are all “what the fuck is wrong with stop and frisk it’s a fair thing to keep our streets safe if i were stopped on the streets i’d be totally cool and let them check me” first of all need I bring back this in which this guy named Alvin (totally not white) was
stopped and frisked harrassed and provoked by the police in such a manner which is totally disrespectful and is no way at all to treat another human being? And if this video isn’t enough, need I bring in this overlooked but brilliant run down on the situation which was posted a year ago but I’m sure still applies greatly today. Also, probably need to add that a judge was removed for trying to speak up against stop and frisk.
Oh god please stop this before anymore young lives are taken away.
