UNARMED black men killed by cops vs cops killed 2015

Police killed at least 102 unarmed black people in 2015, nearly twice each week. (See which police departments were responsible for these deaths)

•Nearly 1 in 3 black people killed by police in 2015 were identified as unarmed, though the actual number is likely higher due to underreporting

•37% of unarmed people killed by police were black in 2015 despite black people being only 13% of the U.S. population

•Unarmed black people were killed at 5x the rate of unarmed whites in 2015

•Only 10 of the 102 cases in 2015 where an unarmed black person was killed by police resulted in officer(s) being charged with a crime, and only 2 of these deaths (Matthew Ajibade and Eric Harris) resulted in convictions of officers involved. Only 1 of 2 officers convicted for their involvement in Matthew Ajibade's death received jail time. He was sentenced to 1 year in jail and allowed to serve this time exclusively on weekends. Deputy Bates, who killed Eric Harris, will be sentenced May 31.

"Take Back Your Power" is an eye opening documentary...even more so than Moore's


This is on Amazon Prime for free, don't know if you can get it free from another site, but it is worth watching.

This subject was totally unknown to me, and now I wonder about my Wi-Fi laptop that is on 24-7 beside my bed!

Time to rethink, and maybe find out more about what is being emitted from the stuff in my home previously thought of as benign!

Is there a way back machine that can take me back to 2006?

There is a post I would like to see:

Mankind is returning the seas to a time when algae and jellyfish ruled. ... From the ooze of the primordial sea came food & gold & values & me.

Don't know if I can post my time in purgatory

I had a 'can't do crap' till you are 'reviewed'...usually takes 24 hours...

got 3rd hide early Thursday am...could not post Friday, Saturday, Sunday and most of Monday...

Did not know 3rd hide got review..I only know 5th hide opens one up to scrutiny?

Where is this written?

This may be my demise?

Can we all post what we think might be the beginning of our mental illness?

I posted some of my history...and you post, instead of how you are right now, how you got here?

I think that might be helpful?

Even if all you need is tea and sympathy...my mother said, as I was cutting my wrists in the bathroom...all Katherine wants is attention, as if attention was something to eschew...we ALL need attention at some time.

And I want this forum to give us what we need...ATTENTION

His/Herstory what brung you here?

Here is my breakdown...and I do mean BREAKDOWN

It took years..

I was supposed to be the boy of the family, and I disappointed by being born a girl..my first mistake

I wet the bed till I was sent to reform school at age 13, but long before that, my sister and cousins regaled in torturing me as a three or four year old...and as my mother said..."that's enough" ...as if all they had done before was just right.

I was raped when I was 11 years old...and told by my mother to wash that filth off of my body..I had no idea at that age what boys, much less what men were about..I was 11 and went to Catholic school...but I did love me some beer..I used to sit beside a chair my dad sat in, and as he put his beer down, I'd take a sip..I was about 3.

There is much, much more background...just like everyone here...I have been diagnosed with every sort of psychological disorder there is..

Why give a shit? I am who I am..I cannot change what brought me to this point...

Well, I have gotten my chance on serving juries down to 60%

because of hillary judges...this one will get me down to 40!

Omaha Steve, do you have a list of leftest democrats we can support?

Can you pin their names?

I have so far supported 3...but have a couple hundred I can help support a few more...and others feel the same.

I hope they give the time given to each person

hillary has taken up about 3/4 of the time so far!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are looking for a home in FL

for cash..we can pay about 20k a trailer not in a park is fine..a house that needs fixin up...but must have running water and electricity...beyond that???
