  • "Yeah, you should be [scared]!" Jesus effing Christ, why do American police officers sound like they stepped straight out of an action movie? I mean, European police have problems with racism as well and definitely treat non white citizens differently, but not by pulling guns and shouting like a mad man on drugs at regular traffic stops.

  • UGGHH....I HATE "AN HISTORIAN"!!!!! (Or more commonly "an historic") KILL IT WITH FIRE!!!! It is "a" before any h-word where the "h" is pronounced. It is only "an" before a silent "h" like in "honor." It drives me f-ing insane that supposedly intelligent people keep doing this (and even more so EMPHASIZING IT AS THEY DO). Get yourself together, Colbert. You don't sound smart when you do this. You sound like a pompous idiot.

  • as much as i am much more disturbed now by the new video on how a US black lieutenant is being mistreated by the very white policemen .... “ a nice way to say thank you” , i sadly add a simple note here for all americans; you must look into your militarism, you should find out what your tax dollar military is, where your tax dollar military is, why your tax dollar military does what it does .... you should learn what does it mean when a US lieutenant is serving overseas ..... you see, we all reap what we sow .... it is only the beginning of the harvest season for americans .....

  • i 100% support black lives matter but i am also really pissed off that people keep pretending that police arint also killing innocent white people. like when people say "we need to stop black on black crime" all i can think is "so white on white crime is ok?". i get the point that blacks are being targeted at higher rates but that does not change the fact that we should be working towards stopping police brutality all around, not just for those who are the most effected by it

  • Colbert is wrong. He’s pushing the victim narrative. That lieutenant knew exactly what he was doing when he turned his phone video record on, set it up, and then ignored and argued with the police.

  • The LT and Dante are not the same. Dante fought like an animal, instead of in court. The lady had a second or two to react. It's not a mistake between taser and gun. It's about Dante acting like an animal and the cop making a blunder during a 5 second window that she had to react. Stop defending Dante's skin color, you biased enablers. As for the LT, I offer ZERO defense to those cops that pepper sprayed him. ZERO excuse. That's more then I can say for you people you defend color other character.

  • *See No Evil (TV Series) Can I Help You? (2020) Plot Summaries* In July 2013, shopkeeper Imran Ashgar is suddenly shot dead in his store in Columbus, Ohio. With the shooting caught on camera, and the killers on the run, detectives are in an urgent race to capture them. Devonere Simmonds, 17, and Nathanial Brunner, 18, have both been charged with the murder of Ashgar’s death. Three days later, the pair also shot and wounded Joe Rudd as they stole his car at a truck stop in Madison County. A fourth accomplice, Lamont Frazier, was allegedly shot dead by Simmonds a few days after the robbery. Simmonds was initially charged with this murder, but the police subsequently dropped the case due to a lack of evidence.

  • The oppression in this country is real.... My family being low income is suffering from a great deal of oppression from the system in place that governs our people.... Laws are made against the poor to keep families of color oppressed and in some cases like ours it flows over to all of the poor not only those of color. As a family we feel the pain our country is suffering through as so much of our case relates. We are currently guilty until proven innocent. Being denied justice or safety because we aren't rich enough to afford a lawyer... By the way modest means... a program to help people retain a lawyer (and in this case we didnt even start any of the court proceedings) Can only lower the retainer to $1,500. (There is even a case we overheard the lawyer and judge discuss by name where a person suffering from mental illness has to defend herself in family court.) We have been battling against the loss of our children for the last 2 years.(they pulled a trump and spread misinformation and made a decade of false reports all unfounded and even brainwashed coached manipulated and mentally destroyed our children.) Recently we received a letter of recommendation from the therapist that states : To Whom it may concern, My name is ******** ********; I am a licensed marriage and family therapist at douglas CARES. I began working with the ***** and ******I family July 9th, 2020 for individual and family therapy due to diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder in many family members. During my time working with the family, they have made immense progress, they are beginning to stabilize however, visits with the kid’s grandparents cause behaviors and anxieties tend to escalate prior to and immediately following contact with their grandparents. There have been several behavioral concerns and stressors prior to and following visits with the children’s grandparents. The girls had been placed in relative foster care, with their maternal grandparents. This placement did not encourage a relationship with their mother and the girls were then moved into nonrelative care. While living with their grandparents the relationship between the girls and Douglas CARES has gone though many challenges. The grandparents would continuously get involved in their treatment and berate them into telling them about their sessions. The grandparents strongly discouraged any positive conversations regarding mom. For example, **** has reported that if she was to behave poorly in visits with her mother or Douglas CARES staff, she would be rewarded with bubble gum ice cream. When **** was ask how long this behavior had been going on with her grandparents, she reported “my whole life.” During **** and ****’s time in care, they have had an estranged relationship with their mother and stepfather; both have been working on reestablishing this relationship in therapy. Both girls are wishing to spend more time with their mother and stepfather at this point. Since the girls have been asking to visit and go back to live with their mother, they have been feeling as if their grandparents are treating them differently. **** has stated that she feels as if her grandparents are mad at her due to wishing to return home. When in sessions with Douglas CARES staff, if they attempted to identify strengths of their mothers or past positive memories, the girls would become agitated and not speak to therapist working with the girls the following visit. Due to these concerns, it is my recommendation that any visits between the **** and ****** family is conducted at the child welfare building. Weekly visits with the girl’s grandparents had become detrimental to the progress the girls are making in treatment. Visits with grandparents should be limited to once a month, supervised at DHS. Since starting visits with their grandparents, **** has begun to act out, including harming her sister, being defiant and having (bathroom) accidents both at night and during the day. I am concerned that these visits are causing a relapse of post trauma anxiety for the family. Thank you very much for your consideration in this matter. And the judge knowing all of this and more still is trying to force us to place our child in the care of people who have done so much to our children already. We as parents are absolutely mortified at the way everything has transposed. We have much more information please contact us by email: allenbowers802@gmail.com
