the place is still called fucking sugar land and the company is called imperial sugar, of course there are dead slaves there. the story reads like some freshman writer wanted to construct an on-the-nose tale of why every industry in the u.s is an insititution to coddle generations of fat settlers and are built on the graves of exploited peoples. they didnt even bother making it sound less like a plantation

The 13th Amendment to the Constitution abolished slavery in 1865, except as punishment for a crime. Several Southern states, including Texas, used this exception to outsource prisoners for labor, Mr. Brown said.


amerika's crimes always rendered in past tense

the theory that will take down the continent-cleansing settler empire is out there and we're going to find it

this mindset of trying so hard to justify the cop's actions drives me nuts. with all the videos that have been released you'd think the next logical thought would be "hey, all this terrorizing seems kind of thuggish in nature, maybe the cops are actually organized criminals that have impunity to do whatever they want and therefore feel empowered to push people around" but instead it's just "oh that cop bad"

This virginia cop got arrested for beating a 6-month-old to death. If I had to guess why i'd say he was furious he looked more like a baby than the 6 monthold

Cop accidentally enters wrong apartment, shoots his neighbor
#464
Cop "accidently" tried to get into the guys room, then "accidently" shot him to death when he opened his door for her. He "by coincidence" was black, and she "as chance would have it in this particularly misfortunate mix-em-up" was white.
#465

Two women who live on the second floor near where the shooting happened said they heard a lot of noise late on Thursday.

"It was, like, police talk: ‘Open up! Open up!’" 20-year-old Caitlin Simpson told the Dallas Morning News.

Yazmine Hernandez, 20, was studying with Simpson when they heard the commotion.


"We heard cops yelling, but otherwise had no idea what was going on," Hernandez said.



All of the headlines are like "she walked into the wrong apartment" when she actually caused a ruckus demanding entry then immediately shot the man.

#466
i can see this easily blowing over since she ofc could have been afraid for her life thinking there was an intruder in her apt even though it wasn't actually hers. accepting at face value as the newspapers are and the courts will that her story is factual
#467
this case is so clear cut i think she'll be convicted of something

cmon it'll be one of those concession cases they make to the public where she gets like two weeks or whatever. Apparently the cops are getting a warrant for her arrest on manslaughter charges

my odds are on her actually going to trial but still getting away with it PLACE YOUR BETS FOLKS

it helps to remember that if you're a cop who gets away with a crime because you're a cop, especially murder and especially if it all started with a stupid mistake you made, you become an instant hero to your peers. it's one of the main things that attracts people to the job and keeps them there, and it's why a lot of cops in the States would be full-time violent criminals even if they weren't paid to do it.

The Scalia Law School has a black campus police officer and someone saw the black policeman and called the police to report black man with a gun.
