Black Lives Matter protests have been going up for weeks with everyday civilians across the US and world pounding the pavement to demand racial equality for blacks and people of color.
In this clip an Everett, Washington man was charged with assault after he dangles a strawberry glazed donut on a string and stick in front of a police lieutenant’s face during a Black Lives Matter protest. The lieutenant, clearly livid, warns the man to “get that f-cking donut out my face” as other officers swarmed in to push him away.
Just FYI, cops are synonymous with donuts.
Eventually the man, skateboard in tow is hauled off and booked for “assault”.
Do you think he should have been charged with a crime? After all the donut didn’t appear to strike anyone. I couldn’t see where a crime was committed.
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.

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.
