Disturbing photos show a cop choking a college student

Police had been responding to a “disturbance” near the University of Tennessee when a house party estimated to be composed of 800+ individuals spilled out onto the street. Deputy Brandon Gilliam wrote in the report that when detaining Dotson, he “began to physically resist officers’ instructions to place his hands behind his back, and at one point grabbed on to an officer’s leg.” At some point, Deputy Phillips felt the need to begin choking Dotson to the point where he passed out — lethal force by any definition.

The deputy who assaulted the student was fired and the deputies who stood by were suspended. As it should be.

This dude made a rookie mistake. You never assault the rich white kids, they’re the only ones the system cares about after all.

^^^^^^^

LETS FUCKING CLARIFY:

A COP CHOKES A WHITE BOY AFTER A ROWDY PARTY UNTIL HE PASSED OUT AND GETS FIRED ASAP.

A COP PUTS AN ASTHMATIC BLACK MAN IN A CHOKE HOLD UNTIL HE DIED AND WE’RE STILL WAITING FOR SOMETHING TO FUCKING HAPPEN. 

THIS IS WHY I CANNOT TRUST “THE SYSTEM”. ITS EITHER SUPER FUCKED UP OR ITS WORKING JUST THE WAY THEY INTENDED IT TO. and we all know which one is right.

This commentary is on point.

This photoset is all kinds of fucked…

how can people see this and still say it’s not about race when everything in the universe is pointing to the fact that it is?

Stop calling what’s happening in Ferguson a “riot”.

It is not a riot.

Vancouver losing the Stanley Cup a few years ago was a riot. It was angry, drunken destruction with no purpose. (And as a Canadian, it was a shameful event)

Ferguson is not a riot. It is a protest. It is an uprising. It is a civil rights revolution. The people of Ferguson may be angry, but they have a reason to be angry, and they are not violent, and they are not hooligans, thugs or looters. They are protesting for their human rights which are currently being denied.

Look at the difference between a riot and a protest. A riot is chaos. A protest has a purpose.

It’s funny, how when women are ugly they are mocked for it, but when women perfect the art of makeup, skin, nails and beauty they are mocked for that too. It’s almost like if you’re a woman you’re mocked no matter what you do. Me? I sell makeup. I sell confidence. I sell gorgeous door to door.

They say Michelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel with paintbrushes no bigger than his finger, but could he paint a masterpiece on his face, at seven in the morning, with his daughter pulling on his skirt, and his husband hollering about how breakfast is late, and only 20 minutes to get everyone off to school? It’s funny, how when men create beauty it’s a masterpiece and when a woman creates beauty it’s just what she’s supposed to be

Me? I sell new beginnings. I sell a blank canvas, and your own brushes, and your own paint. I sell the chance to be your own greatest creation.

Mike Brown’s killer Darren Wilson “explaining” “what really happened” - he just deactivated his facebook so I can no longer post what he’s up to, but just wanted to show everyone the absolute bullshit lies being told

Let’s keep in mind this article from the Wall Street Journal:

Local police released new details in sometimes chaotic fashion Friday about the shooting death of an unarmed African-American teenager, which sowed more mistrust in a community already lacking faith in law-enforcement efforts. Early Friday, Ferguson police identified Darren Wilson as the officer who shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown in an incident that has sparked a week of unrest in this St. Louis suburb as well as protests in cities across the country.Chief Thomas Jackson also released documents and surveillance video, alleging that Mr. Brown was tied to a robbery at a convenience store shortly before he crossed paths with police. Hours later, Mr. Jackson held another news conference in which he said Mr. Wilson, who is white, wasn’t aware of the robbery when he stopped Mr. Brown.
  1. Lack of the alleged robbery being called in on the 911 tapes…
  2. Time stamp on video of alleged robbery doesn’t match …hmmm…okay
  3. Police report is time stamped BEFORE the alleged Mike Brown on that tape even left the store
  4. Wilson’s own previous admittance that he didn’t know about the robbery at the time of the murder
  5. MULTIPLE eyewitness accounts detailing the events of the murder…all of which said that Micheal Brown was RUNNING AWAY from Wilson until he was shot in the back, turned around, dropped to his knees with his hands raised, and yelled something to the effect of “Don’t shoot! I don’t have a gun!” before he was shot in the head and multiple times after that…while on his knees…with his hands in the air….
  6. Fuck outta here, you spineless bitch

Didn’t I tell y’all they’re going to try and say he was on drugs or some shit to make him have “superhuman strength” and belligerent?! Didn’t I say that shit?! 

^^^ Them claiming he was under the influence of drugs is a given. It’s the only way they could even try to justify the murder.

"Michael taunts and yells ‘What are you gonna do about it’ stuff like that”. What the fuck is “stuff like that”? You mean to tell me this boy was running full speed toward a cop with a gun pointed directly at him?? How long did it take this cracker to concoct this bullshit ass story?? It could have at least made a little more sense.

I’m not trusting any toxicology or autopsy report they release at this point. Ain’t no telling what they did to his body once they opted to transport it in an unmarked SUV versus an ambulance.

7 days….it took him 7 days to concoct that bullshit ass story, twin. And let’s not forget that aside from the fact that his ass was in a fucking vehicle and should have immediately radioed for help as soon as that gun went off, officers have other items on them to include pepper spray, batons, tasers, etc….you go straight for the gun, though? On an unarmed child? You go…straight…for…the…gun…

And yeah, I called all that. The M.E. or medic is supposed to transport the body. NOT the PD, especially when it’s a cop shooting. On everything he’d better get tried and convicted of murder….

Disgusting.
