Distressing Video Captures EXACTLY How Cops Treat Black People

I had to reblog this again because it just reduced me to tears. 

As most of you know, I am an attorney. And I am an attorney licensed in Minnesota. This is the state where I took an oath last year to uphold state and federal laws and to protect the rights of the citizens.

It PAINS me to see this. To see these unjust cops who I for all intents & purposes, have to stand along side. When they are abusing EVERY SINGLE OUNCE of POWER. Minneapolis/St. Paul have BEEN a war zone. I’m ashamed. I’m embarrassed.

Not all officers are bad. Please don’t let that be the take away. But police brutality is VERY FUCKING REAL. 

Watch this. If this doesn’t move you, if this doesn’t make you cry out in agony and want to change the world, I don’t know what will.

[trigger warning]

This is fucking bone chilling bc i recognize this skyway i know exactly where this is i have walked where this man was crying out assaulted i have seen that woman as well she harassed my mom before im pretty sure this is scary i never realized how bad it is in st paul too

Ten pages into chapter 3 of my original novel and my supporting lesbian couple has not only taken over the chapter but owned it. I think I ship them.

It’s been a productive day.
