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.

Um, weird flex but ok. SMH.
Hustlers, did he nail it or fail it?
According to WKRC, Craig Stivender posted a video to his Facebook page where he says he “learned the values of faith, family and honesty at an early age.”
“That’s why I want to tell you at the start of my campaign some things that politicians would try to hide. Things my opponents may try to use to tarnish my integrity.”
The final event on the list dealt with an inappropriate Halloween costume Stivender wore to a Halloween party with other officers a decade ago. Continue reading →
