Ahh, another day, another black person gets arrested and detained for basically breathing while black.
In the video below, a black guy was eating a sandwich at the train station when he was approached and eventually detained by the transit police.
Now, I have a couple of questions here, mainly who knew you couldn’t eat a sandwich at the train station?
The man (and the woman) videoing the incident questioned the officer and pointed out that there was no signage stating food was off limits. Last time I checked, millions of people drink coffee and eat snacks/food at the train station. In most train stations they have vending machines with sodas and snacks.
Secondly, did the officer ask him to not eat the sandwich and he ignored? I don’t understand how this escalated to this level. Even if the rules are no food, couldn’t a simple reminder suffice? The officer threw me off when he said it “against the law” to eat the sandwich. Weird.
This Popeye’s chicken sandwich has gotten so far out of hand it’s not funny. It’s really beyond me how a sandwich could cause this much foolery and violence. It’s very strange.
Just last week a Maryland man was stabbed to death over a dispute in line with another customer.
Apparently Debra Staggs, 55, was body slammed after a dispute with the Popeye’s workers in Columbia, Tennessee over a refund. Staggs claimed she was double charged for a sandwich. Onlookers alleged she tossed around the N-word as the argument escalated.
The dispute between Staggs and the staff as seen in the video below, then spills outside into the parking lot where the body slam occurred.
She reportedly suffered multiple bone breaks and injuries from the altercation. She has since hired an attorney.
The Popeye’s worker was fired and more than likely will be charged with some kind of assault & other liabilities.
Mexican newspaper Excelsior shared CCTV footage from Wednesday’s attack that showed the police officer parking his white vehicle outside a shopping center. Moments later, a red vehicle pulls up alongside him and armed gunmen men leap out, firing rapidly from close range.
Within 30 seconds, the gunmen fired 155 shots at the police officer, before leaping into the vehicle and running off, the outlet reported. Continue reading →
KTLA– As the nation has embraced many conversations about prison reform, Mylrell Miner, a formerly incarcerated individual, is working towards changing the narrative of the systems-impacted community with his Los Angeles-based organization called the Bromont Program.
“Every community is represented through media but not every community has a voice in that representation,” says Miner.
As a young person, Mylrell has cycled in-and-out of juvenile hall since the age of 11, culminating with an eight-year prison sentence served in his 20s. It was during his incarceration that he discovered a passion for writing, realizing just how healing and life-changing it could be. Continue reading →
It’s amazing how they were able to find this guy but other crimes, particularly against the blacks go unnoticed and unsolved.
