And there’s nowhere to even go here because EVEN THE MALL IS OUTDOORS. You are a victim of your own stupid hubris, Southern California, and I can’t wait until you all burrow underground to escape the sun and your useless cardboard box construction just in time for the state to fall off into the ocean. I hope this neighborhood goes first.
Talk about hubris. Most native LA people I know hate the heat but refuse to consider moving elsewhere because this is the “best place on earth”. Feh to that, I miss green in a land where everything is shades of brown.
NYPD Forcefully Arrests Woman For Simply Waiting For Family Outside Restaurant, She Turns Out To Be A Human Rights Attorney
The NYPD stepped into it big time after forcefully arresting a woman for standing outside a restaurant. She also happens to be a human rights attorney. Oops.
I’m looking forward to authoritarian personality types trying to figure out a way to blame her for you know…being arrested for waiting for her family outside of a restaurant.
Nevermind the “free advice” the arresting officer gives about being “in America”.
When a white teenager named Steve Lohner was stopped by the police last month and refused to show his ID after carrying a loaded shotgun on the streets of Aurora, Colorado (the same city where a mass murderer killed 12 people and injured 70 others in a packed movie theater in July 2012), the teen walked away with nothing but a citation.
But when a 22-year-old black kid named John Crawford picked up a mere BB gun in a Walmart store in Dayton, Ohio last week, customers called the police, who then shot and killed him.
Here lies a racial disparity that’s difficult for honest people to ignore. How can black people openly carry a real gun when we can’t even pick up a BB gun in a store without arousing suspicion? The answer in America is that the Second Amendment doesn’t really apply to black people.
