Slay for a Change Uses Fashion To Spread Police Brutality, Cultural Appropriation Awareness

Shayla Janel is an entrepreneur, fashion activist and creator of “Slay for a Change” a bold initiative using fashion to spread awareness about police brutality as well as cultural appropriation. “After the untimely and unjustly death of Sandra Bland I felt sadness and frustration, so I conceived the idea for Slay For A Change,” said Shayla Janel. “Then it was the horrendous murders of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile that gave birth to my vision. At the time, the whole world seemed to be in shock and in mourning. As a fashion lover, I was following most of the major fashion designers, publications, and influencers on social media and I noticed an eerie silence from the fashion community. I thought to myself, “wow…this is an industry that profits so much from the culture but can’t even acknowledge this tragedy. “In music, sports, television, and etc., people were seemingly taking a stand, she said. But the fashion industry seemed to care less. So, I took our police brutality issues to their front door—Fashion Week. It was a very passive aggressive way of being an activist.”

Cultural Appropriation

Shayla Janel, along with her team of fashion industry disruptors, has also hit the streets of Houston, New York City, Paris, and a few more places in between. Donning a variety of strong statement-making pieces such as a sequin dress, a hoody, a bomber style jacket and penguin-slim-fitted blazer, the team has been featured in MSN China, Elle Brasil, Women’s Wear Daily, Fashion Bomb Daily, and more.

“For the past four years, I’ve attended Fashion Week. While I never made it into the major shows, I learned quickly by just loitering around the streets that you could potentially capture the attention of the press from all over the world, she said. We were silent but the clothes made a very boisterous statement. The first reaction from people was “Are y’all a singing group?” Then we would turn around and we were greeted with “Yaasssss” left and right—especially from people of color. We were also bombarded by photographers and it was insane for a second. There were a few Caucasian photographers who mocked us and condescendingly shouted out “Black Lives Matter” but overall it was all love!

Slay for a Change launched on 9/11. I wanted to let people know that I will never forget the victims of 9/11. I will also never forget about the deaths of the ones who were killed unjustly. Using #SlayForAChange fashion pieces to amplify her voice, she documented her journey from Texas to New York Fashion Week (NYFW) and produced her very first documentary Fashion Weak with a budget of less than a $ 1,000. “During filming, we ran into my icon, June Ambrose, who makes an appearance in our documentary. Because June reposted our photo on her Instagram account, Slay For a Change went viral.

#StayWoke: More Than a Hashtag

cultural appropriation

“I chose to use the names of victims of police brutality and injustices because I noticed after the death of Sandra Bland, everyone was up in arms but a month later people moved on, including myself, which is why I didn’t go through with my vision the first time I came up with it,” she said. It’s also important for me to note that Sandra Bland and I are both alumni from Prairie View A&M University. Her death was my official wake up call. Initially, I thought if I could get some pictures taken with Sandra Bland’s name during NYFW,  the media would photograph me and continue to spread awareness.

Two years later, the fashion activist has no plans of slowing down. “I’m most proud of my first documentary, Fashion Weak, which was directed by my sister, April Joi. She is also part of the SFAC team. It’s raw and imperfect with a very small budget, but the story is so powerful. It not only follows us throughout NYFW, it tracks my journey through fashion and brings the issue of racism within the Industry to the forefront. With the help of my dream team—Sr. Fashion Editor Kaye Washington; Web Director Chloe Moore, and Senior Editor Gabriella Layne; SlayforaChange.com is a digital safe space where African American millennial women can share their voice through articles and uplift people from all over the world. I’m also proud of my ever-growing business which is an online vintage store called Randomandchic.com.

Say What Now? Dallas Police Officer Shoots and Kills 26-Year-Old Man After Entering Wrong Apartment, Believing It Was Her Own

A Dallas police officer was arrested on Friday morning after she mistakenly entered the wrong unit in her apartment building and fatally shot a 26-year-old man who was minding his business inside.

via NYDN:

The officer was fresh off a shift and still in full uniform Thursday night when she walked into what she believed to be her apartment at the South Side Flats, located about a block away from the Dallas Police Department Headquarters. She was confronted by a man, identified by the Medical examiner’s office as Botham Shem Jean.

“At some point, she pulled her weapon and shot the victim,” Sgt. Warren Mitchell told reporters during an early morning press conference Friday.

The officer reported the shooting around 10 p.m. and police officers administered first aid when they arrived on scene. Jean was then taken to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

When asked whether the officer believed the man was an intruder, Mitchell declined to offer additional details on the circumstances surrounding the incident.

“I won’t go into that information right now. We have not interviewed her,” he said.

“We still have a lot to do in this investigation. There’s a lot of information I understand you guys want, but this is all we can give you at this time.”

Authorities did not indicate there were any witnesses to the shooting.

“We have not spoken to anyone else at this time,” Mitchell said.

The officer involved in the shooting, who has not been identified, remains in custody while the District Attorney’s office and police determine appropriate charges, according to WFAA

We have so many questions — was the door unlocked? How did she not realize it wasn’t her unit — did she not notice it wasn’t her furniture? Did she take even a single pause to assess the situation before she started firing her gun?

SO many questions.

Black Police Org. (NBPA) Endorses Nike/Kaepernick Deal And Slams Other Police Organization

While Trump and the National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO) is spitting fire at Nike‘s hook up with Colin Kaepernick, the National Black Police Assoc. (NBPA) is basically giving the deal a standing ovation.

The NFL-banned QB’s stance is “is in direct alignment with what law enforcement stands for,” says the NBPA.

Earlier, NAPO fired off a letter to Nike saying the Kaepernick ad “grossly insults the men and women who really do make sacrifices for the sake of our nation.”

Hmm, they obviously hadn’t seen the ad before making that stupid statement.

“We are calling on all our member officers, their families and friends to join in boycotting all Nike products,” the seemingly out of touch police org added.

On the other hand, the National Black Police Association has the complete opposite view of the situation. They sent a letter to Nike praising the deal … and slamming the other police org.

“The National Black Police Association is not in agreement with NAPO on this matter, and we strongly condemn their call for police officers and their families to boycott Nike and its products,” the letter says.

“Your inclusion of Mr. Kaepernick in your ads seems appropriate to us. We live in a country where the 1st Amendment is a right of the people.”

“The NBPA believes that Mr. Kaepernick’s stance is in direct alignment with what law enforcement stands for — the protection of a people, their human rights, their dignity, their safety, and their rights as American citizens.”

“NAPO has shown an adeptness at maintaining the police status quo and the tone in their letter further validates Mr. Kaepernick’s concerns, as it undermines the trust that is needed by law enforcement in order for the profession to maintain its legitimacy.”

The NBPA believes NAPO’s stance “only perpetuates the narrative that police are racist, with no regard, acknowledgment, respect or understanding of the issues and concerns of the African American community.”

“For NAPO to presuppose that Mr. Kaepernick has not made sacrifices because he did not die on a battlefield, shows you just how out of touch NAP is with the African American community.”

The letter ends … “We will likely be buying and wearing lots of Nike products in the near future.”

If that isn’t support for Kaepernick, we don’t know what is.

Mel Gibson’s New Police Brutality Movie Is a Vile, Racist Right-Wing Fantasy

Summit Entertainment

VENICE, Italy — Two years ago, the Venice Film Festival hosted the world premiere of Hacksaw Ridge, a World War II drama directed by Mel Gibson. The film marked Gibson’s first turn behind the camera in a decade, since he’d drunkenly slurred “the Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world,” pleaded guilty to battering his then-partner Oksana Grigorieva, and was caught on audio saying she was “asking” to be “raped by a pack of n*ggers.” Despite never demonstrating much in the way of genuine contrition, he was treated to a prolonged standing ovation on the Lido—the opening salvo of a “comeback tour” replete with rave reviews, a $ 175 million box office gross, and six Academy Award nominations. This fuck you attitude, coupled with a rich history of racism, misogyny and homophobia, has elevated Gibson to folk-hero status among the far-right. He is their Oprah. 

And they’re going to be very happy with his new film.

Making its world premiere in Venice, Dragged Across Concrete’s premise is as follows: a pair of detectives, Brett Ridgeman (Mel Gibson) and Anthony Lurasetti (Vince Vaughn) are caught on tape applying excessive force to a Hispanic prisoner in handcuffs, in the form of Ridgeman grinding his boot into the man’s neck until it emits a cracking sound. (During the bust, Ridgeman and Lurasetti also mock a scared, naked Latina suspect, claiming they can’t understand what she’s saying due to her accent. Both scenes are played for laughs.) With the tape destined to go viral, Ridgeman and Lurasetti are suspended for six weeks without pay, though the chief of police (Don Johnson) is sympathetic to their plight, delivering a rambling sermon about how being branded a “racist” today is akin to getting labeled a “communist” in the 1950s—or, to quote the president, this is a WITCH HUNT! and these two violent cops are the real victims.

Cuteness Overload! 8 Kentucky Police Officers from the Same Department Pose with Their Newborns

Eight police officers from the same department in Kentucky have more than just their jobs in common — they are all parents of newborns.

Seven dads and one mom from the Erlanger Police Department all had children within the past year, and they decided to share a photo of all of them together.

“We are all like, ‘Oh, I am having a kid,’ then we are like, ‘So am I.’ ‘So am I.’ A couple months later, ‘So am I.’ Then you start looking at it and say, ‘(The) schedule is going to be an issue,’” Officer Ryan Atchley told WLWT.

And while the officers were all smiles for the photo, Justin Auton, admits that he only sleeps around three hours a night on average.

“I do cook a lot. I do all the wife’s meals for the whole week, the kids, I do all of that. I make birthday cake, stuff like that. Even though I don’t eat cakes,” he told WLWT.

The photo shoot was an adorable attempt to upstage the Glenpool Fire Department Department, who posed with seven newborns in May.

“Hey Glenpool Fire Department. I guess there’s something in the water here in Erlanger KY too!” they wrote in the Facebook post.”

In just a little over a year, seven firefighters from their department had babies. To celebrate, they took a sweet group shot.

“It’s crazy how it all happened, but we are a really tight fire family, so it was a blessing in disguise for us,” Sarah Hutchinson, wife of Glenpool firefighter Dustin Hutchinson, a 10-year vet of the department, told PEOPLE at the time. “We never thought we would get this attention!”

After Insulting Police Entrapment Scheme, Rapper Vic Mensa Gives Back

The Chicago police department recently came under fire for setting up a sting operation that many said was a form of entrapment. The operation was a joint effort between the police and Northern Southern Railroad and involved parking unlocked, unmanned trucks filled with sneakers as bait to catch thieves.

Only three people ended up swiping shoes. A viral video of the so-called ‘bait trucks’ sparked outrage and the railroad company has since apologized.



In an effort to diffuse the situation, native Chicago rapper and Roc Nation signee Vic Mensa announced that alongside his SaveMoneySaveLife foundation, 5,000 sneakers will be given away to kids in need at the same location where the “bait truck” incident initially took place. Mensa has asked for the support of shoe companies, professional athletes, and other high profile public figures to make a contribution to this initiative.

The rapper also tweeted an Amazon.com link where anyone can donate by purchasing sneakers directly that will go toward the drive.

Laundi Keeseagle, who serves as the executive director of Vic Mensa’s foundation was quoted as saying, “We wanted to do something in response, but have a positive response.”

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, an official date of the giveaway event has not yet been determined but will be announced once the sneaker goal has been reached.

Vic Mensa is taking a grassroots approach to alleviate an issue that directly affected his community in the Southside of Chicago.  Increasingly, entertainers are using their influence for social impact. Other notable Chicago rappers including Twista, Chance the Rapper, and Common have also given back to the city.

Chance the Rapper has been particularly active in giving back. Last December, he hosted a holiday party at The Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago to raise money for homeless children.

His organization, SocialWorks, raised $ 2.2 million as of 2017—funds set aside for the Chicago Public School system.

Say What Now? Safeway Grocery Store Employees Call the Police on a Black Woman in the Parking Lot Donating Food to a Homeless Man

Employees at a California supermarket called the police on a Black woman who was simply donating food to a homeless man.

The employees accused her and her family of being involved in an alleged grocery heist.

via NYDN:

Erika Martin told the Daily News she was in the parking lot of the Mountain View Safeway July 8 to give a homeless man food for his dog with her sisters Faith and Ashley when she was approached by two police cars.

Martin said she explained to the officers what she was doing, and they asked if she was waiting on someone, like a husband, to exit the store – which she was not. She said the officer then told Martin someone had been stealing items from the store, and that the suspect was wearing a blue spaghetti strap shirt.

“I said, ‘What! Wait, are you kidding me?’ I never even stepped foot inside of Safeway, I was in my car the whole entire time I was there,” she wrote, noting that she was not wearing the spaghetti strap shirt in question.A spokesperson for the Mountain View Police Department told the Daily News it received a phone call from the store that day reporting a possible theft in progress. When police arrived, employees identified a male, a female and several children they believed were connected with the alleged theft.

The spokesperson said when police spoke with the accused group, they were “extremely helpful” and “cooperative,” and cops quickly determined no crime had been committed.

The heavily redacted incident report says employees believed Martin was taking goods out of the store and that children were “grabbing goods from the shelves” and bringing them back to an awaiting car.

Martin said the accused children were her 13-year-old niece, 11-year-old nephew and 9-year-old son, who had entered the store to use the bathroom.

She also said the incident greatly affected her son, who had sought free cookie samples from the bakery during the bathroom break, as he frequently does.

“He broke down in tears as if he was afraid for his life,” Martin said of her son’s “confession.” “He said, ‘I didn’t mean to do anything wrong. I didn’t steal anything, mom’… He thought he did something wrong. He thought the police were going to arrest him for looking behind the counter. To see my child in so much fear broke my heart.”

She said the incident was especially hurtful as she frequents the store and is known to employees.

“We were there to do a good deed and we left feeling humiliated, embarrassed, hurt and shocked,” she wrote.

A representative for Safeway said in a statement that the police were called concerning an “adult male with a history of suspected shoplifting” at the story. The rep said it was “not entirely clear” why the police spoke to Martin, and that an internal investigation had been launched.

“Safeway is committed to fostering an environment of treating everyone with courtesy, dignity, and respect. We have strong policies against racial discrimination and we do not tolerate violations to the policy,” the statement read. “Safeway contacted Ms. Martin to sincerely apologize for the misunderstanding and we look forward to continuing the discussion regarding her concerns. “

Martin said she received an apology from a store employee who was not working the day of the incident, but is still awaiting a call from the location’s two managers and the company’s corporate offices.

“It’s like they don’t care, they’re brushing it under the rug,” she said, adding that she was also racially profiled at a PetCo in October. “I’m so tired of the craziness in this world.”

Safeway’s going to have to do a LOT better than that. This is completely unacceptable.

Former NBA Player Tyler Honeycutt Dies From Suicide After Shootout With The Police

According to new reports, the former basketball player, Tyler Honeycutt, died after a standoff with police. The former UCLA Bruins and Sacramento Kings basketball player was 27-years-old.

Josh Rubenstein, a spokesperson for the police department, said to Us Weekly that the police had received a phone call around 5 pm regarding a man who had a gun and was behaving erratically at a Sherman Oaks address.

When the police arrived at the scene, they discovered a man in his late 20’s, and he supposedly began shooting at them. The police shot back, and after several hours, Honeycutt turned the gun on himself.

Mr. Rubenstein stated that it isn’t known if they managed to hit him with gunfire. Before his death, Honeycutt barricaded himself in the house, and SWAT, Crisis Negotiation Team, and MEU, all responded and came in full force to the scene of the crime.

The police had to evacuate around 30 different people and at 2:30 am, the police found Mr. Honeycutt unresponsive inside the house, subsequently pronouncing him dead. You can check out the LAPD’s tweet below:

After the incident went down, the police took to Twitter to say that SWAT had entered the residence and located him. Later on, they claimed that it appeared he had killed himself through a self-inflicted gunshot.

A spokesperson for the LAPD said they had also found a handgun near his body. According to TMZ, his mother was the one who called the police because Tyler was behaving strange and unpredictable.

Honeycutt, perhaps, is most known for playing basketball for the Bruins for two years, from 2009 until 2011, and played in 2011 for the Sacramento Kings.

Tyler only played professionally for one year, before he was assigned to the D-league team, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers. He then went on to play with the Russian team, Khimki and won the Eurocup championship. And in 2015-16, he competed in the EuroLeague games and averaged around 6 points per game.

Prosecutor: Pittsburgh Police Officer Had ‘No Justification’ for Killing Unarmed Black Teen

Justin Merriman/Getty Images

A white East Pittsburgh police officer who was sworn into duty only hours before he shot and killed an unarmed black teen last week was charged with criminal homicide Wednesday morning, according to court records.

Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala Jr. told reporters that officer Michael Rosfeld, 30, had “no justification” to fire at 17-year-old Antwon Rose, whose hands were raised in the air as he fled a vehicle.

“Rose never committed any crimes,” Zappala said. “Rosfeld’s actions were intentional and brought about the result he was looking to accomplish.”

The Orlando Police Department Is Ending Its Test of Amazon Facial Recognition Tech—For Now

Orlando will not be renewing its contract with Amazon.

The city’s police department had been one of two in an Amazon pilot program to incorporate its facial recognition software, Rekognition, into law enforcement. But the program has come under fire from civil liberties groups and even some Amazon investors over concerns that the technology could be used for mass surveillance.

In a letter to Orlando’s mayor and city council on Monday, the legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida urged the police department to end its use of the technology.

In a joint statement, the city and the Police Department said the contract “remains expired” but left open the possibility of reinstating it or trying other types of software: “The City of Orlando is always looking for new solutions to further our ability to keep our residents and visitors safe. Partnering with innovative companies to test new technology–while also ensuring we uphold privacy laws and in no way violate the rights of others–is critical to us as we work to further keep our community safe.”

Amazon Rekognition is also being tested in Washington County, Oregon. The technology remains in use. In an email to The New York Times the Sheriff’s Office said, “The Sheriff’s Office has not, and will not, utilize this technology for mass or real-time surveillance. That use is prohibited by both Oregon state law and our own policy.”

Calif. Toddler Dies After Mom Leaves Him in Car for 10 Hours While She ‘Socialized’: Police

A 23-year-old California mother was arrested after allegedly leaving her 18-month-old son in a hot car for 10 hours while she “socialized” with friends.

Police say Alexandrea Raven Scott left her son Chergery Teywoh Lew Mays inside of her car around 3 a.m. Wednesday while she visited friends.

“Once there, Scott, who resides in Humboldt County, socialized with people while leaving her child in the back seat of her car which was parked in front of the residence with the windows rolled up,” according to a statement by the Mendocino Sheriff’s Office.

“It is believed the child was left unattended in the back seat of the vehicle with the windows rolled up for about 10 hours,” it continued.

Scott allegedly discovered her son in the back seat at about 1 p.m. and took him to Howard Memorial Hospital in Willits, police stated. He was pronounced dead upon arrival.

She was arrested and booked into the Mendocino County Jail for willfully causing or permitting a child to suffer great bodily injury or death.

Scott is currently being held without bail.

On Tuesday, Elizabeth Marie Barhonovich, 28 of Mississippi, was arrested and is being held in jail without bond after allegedly leaving her 10-month-old son in a hot car. The baby, Kash, died on June 14 “after being left in his mother’s vehicle for an unknown length of time while it was parked” outside her home “in the heat.”

RELATED: What to Know About Hot Car Deaths and How to Avoid Them

Records show temperatures reached 90 degrees on the day Kash died. The heat index was 98 degrees.

The Centers for Disease Control say that it is never safe to leave children unattended in a car in any weather, even with the window cracked open.

To remember that a child is in the car, they recommend keeping a stuffed animal in the child’s car seat on days when they’re not, and moving the stuffed animal to the front passenger seat when the child is there as a reminder. Other suggestions include placing purses or bags in the backseat by the child, or even one shoe so parents are assured to check before leaving the car.

NBA Player Sterling Brown Is Suing the Police for Using a Stun Gun Against Him

(MILWAUKEE) — Milwaukee Bucks guard Sterling Brown filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the city of Milwaukee and its police department, claiming unlawful arrest and excessive force when officers used a stun gun on him during his arrest for a parking violation.

Brown’s attorney Mark Thomsen filed the lawsuit in federal court.

Brown had been talking with officers while waiting for a citation for illegally parking in a disabled spot outside a Walgreens on Jan. 26, when officers took him down because he didn’t immediately remove his hands from his pockets as ordered.

Police Chief Alfonso Morales apologized to Brown last month when body-camera video of the arrest was released. Brown wasn’t charged with anything and three officers were disciplined, with suspensions ranging from two to 15 days.

Eight other officers were ordered to undergo remedial training in professional communications.

Video of the confrontation shows an officer approached Brown around 2 a.m. When their conversation becomes tense, the officer calls more squad cars for help and eventually eight officers are standing around Brown. One asks him to take his hands out of his pockets and a second or two later the scuffle begins. Almost immediately, an officer yells: “Taser! Taser! Taser!”

According to the lawsuit, one of the officers later took to Twitter to mock Brown, saying, “Nice meeting Sterling Brown of the Milwaukee Bucks at work this morning! Lol#FearTheDeer

Police only released the body camera video of the first officer who contacted Brown. But additional body camera and squad car videos, obtained by WISN-TV, showed the moments after officers used a stun gun on Brown. In one, Brown is on the ground and handcuffed when an officer puts one of his boots on Brown’s ankle, holding it there. Brown doesn’t mention being in any discomfort but he questions the officer’s actions.

“C’mon man, you’re stepping on my ankle for what?” Brown said. In response, the officer said he was trying to prevent Brown from kicking anyone.

Other videos obtained by WISN-TV showed an officer talking with two colleagues seating in a squad car. They talked about how they could be perceived as racist for arresting a black Bucks player, with one saying if anything goes wrong, it “is going to be, ‘Ooh, the Milwaukee Police Department is all racist, blah, blah, blah.’”

Brown told the Journal Sentinel in an interview last month that he “gave in” when police used a stun gun and that he didn’t do anything to resist because he didn’t want officers to “pull out their guns.”

“I was just being smart. I just wanted to get out of the situation and get home,” he said.

Janet Jackson Calls Police On Estranged Husband During Visit With Son

Even Janet Jackson isn’t immune to problems with her baby daddy. While her estranged husband, Wissam Al-Mana was in Los Angeles visiting with their son, Eissa, Jackson called police to do a welfare check on him, reportedly because a nanny reported some troubling behavior on Al-Mana’s part. Al-Mana and the child were at Malibu’s Nobu Hotel. TMZ first reported on the story.

People.com reports:

Jackson called authorities around 10 p.m. PT on Saturday, a spokesperson for the Malibu Lost Hill’s Sheriff’s Station said.

“Deputies were there [and] called to the scene. They decided the child was okay and they left,” the spokesperson told PEOPLE.

Jackson, 52, was not at the hotel at the time, authorities confirmed.

The pop star’s brother Randy Jackson told Entertainment Tonight — which first reported the news on Sunday — that Jackson was concerned after their nanny grew “terrified” by Al Mana’s behavior and “locked herself in a bathroom, so she could contact Janet.”

Janet Jackson has made no comment.

Say What Now? New Jersey Police Officer Caught on Camera Violently Punching a 20-Year-Old Woman for Drinking Beer on the Beach [Video]

A New Jersey police officer is under investigation after a viral video showed him repeatedly hitting a underage woman caught with a beer on the beach during a Memorial Day weekend outing.

via NYDN:

What began as a day of fun in the sun Saturday turned into a beach blanket beatdown after a Wildwood police officer was caught on camera slugging a 20-year-old woman in the head at least three times while trying to handcuff her, according to video of the encounter.

The disturbing clash was caught on a cell phone camera by a woman who had been napping on the Jersey Shore beach before the commotion broke out just feet away. Her video showed the officer straddling the woman in the sand, and wailing away at her head as he ordered her to “stop resisting.”

The woman, who was arrested, and later identified by police as Emily Weinman, cried out, “You’re not allowed to hit me like that!

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Weinman added, while struggling under the tight grip of two officers.

While KYW-TV in Philadelphia reports Weinman managed to kick an officer in the groin during the arrest, the video does not appear to show it.

Neither the officer who hit Weinman nor another cop that grabbed her legs or a third one who stood by has been identified.

The arrest took place on a beach in the resort city, about 30 miles south of Atlantic City.

Weinman, who lives in Philadelphia, was slapped with a slew of charges, including two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, aggravated assault by spitting bodily fluids at a police officer, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, obstruction and minor in possession of alcohol.

The footage was shared on Twitter on Saturday evening, and has since garnered more than 2.3 million views.

“I was sleeping on the beach and I woke up to this,” the video taker said in a post accompanying the footage. “I can’t believe it.”

Weinman, in a Facebook post that has since been removed, said she had been drinking a beer, according to NJ.com. The website said she was approached by officers on the beach around 4 p.m. Weinman said she passed a Breathalyzer test and that cops followed her when she went to make a phone call.

‘I asked them don’t they have something better to do as cops than to stop people for underage drinking on the beach,” the Facebook post said, and that’s when Weinman claims an officer said, “I was gonna let you go but now I’ll write you up.”Weinman said she refused to give the officer her name for the ticket. She said she tripped and fell as she was backing away, and that’s when the officer tackled her.

Weinman turns 21 in September, according to court records.

Weinman pleaded guilty to simple assault and reckless endangerment in November for a 2016 arrest in Philadelphia, records show.

Wildwood Police Chief Robert Regalbuto found the video upsetting, authorities said.

“Chief Regalbuto stated that while he finds this video to be alarming, he does not want to rush to any judgment until having the final results of the investigation,” the department said in a statement posted on Facebook.

The officers involved in the arrest were placed on desk duty pending the results of the internal probe, officials said.

Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano Jr. said the officers were wearing body cameras and when the footage is released, it will show Weinman insulting and spitting at the cops, according to Philly.com.

You can see the footage for yourself below. This is completely unacceptable.

Police Suspend Officer After 65-Year-Old Woman Dragged From Car During Traffic Stop

The police department in Alpharetta, Georgia have suspended an officer and opened an internal investigation regarding a May 4 traffic stop where a 65-year-old grandmother was pulled from her car.

“I just panicked. I felt like my heart exploded,” Rose Campbell told WSB-TV. “I didn’t expect that in America. I didn’t expect that in Atlanta. I didn’t expect that especially in Alpharetta.”

In the full dash cam video posted by the police department on YouTube, Public Safety Chief John Robison begins by promising “a decisive and appropriate outcome.”

“There are aspects of this video that do not represent who we are as an organization,” Robison says.

According to the police, Campbell was pulled over by officer Michael Swerdlove after she swerved into a second lane while turning, almost causing a collision. Swerdlove is seen approaching the vehicle and then attempts to warrant a citation for the incident. Campbell refused to sign the ticket because she believed it would be an admission of guilt–and that is when things quickly escalated.

“He told me he was giving me a citation for failure to maintain lane.  I said for what?  Everybody does that when a cop gives you a ticket, unless you’re wrong, you’re gonna ask why,” she said.

Swerdlove told her that if she refused to sign the citation she would be arrested. Campbell then attempts to ask for a supervisor, but the officer demands that she gets out of the car to attempt an arrest. Swerdlove is then shown opening Campbell’s door and begins to pull her out.

“No sir, this is abusive behavior,” Campbell can be heard saying at one point in the video. “I’m being abused, I need the supervisor now!” she continues.

As a second cop approaches the car, Campbell continues asking for the supervisor. The cop continues to tug on her, while the second officer begins to attempt to pull her out of the car.

A third officer named James Legg approaches on the passenger’s side, but then walks around to the other two officers who are still pulling on Campbell to get out the car.

As Campbell agrees to get out of the car, Legg walks around to the driver’s side and begins cursing at the woman.

“Hey, you’re not in charge! Shut the f— up and get out the car!” Legg yells at Campbell. Campbell, who is diabetic says she was terrified as they attempted to arrest her.

Legg was suspended as a result of the investigation. Campbell has hired an attorney, but has yet to decide if she wants to take legal action. What she wants is an apology, she told WSB.

“They need to be put on suspension, disciplinary action without pay.  That normally works in the brain,” Campbell said.  “I don’t like the issue of firing people.  I think everyone has a space for redemption.”

Bystander Saves the Day After Tripping Armed Man Who Was Running Away from the Police

Thanks to a helpful bystander, police in Ohio were able to apprehend an armed man who was trying to run away from them, authorities say.

On Thursday, exactly one month after the incident occurred near a library in Columbus, Ohio, on April 3, the Columbus Division of Police released footage that showed a man, whom they identified as “Bill,” bravely sticking out his leg to trip the armed suspect.

In the video, Bill described the moments that led up to his decision to step in, saying, “I saw you guys were chasing him and I could see that he was holding something in his waistband while he was running from you guys, but he had a good lead on your closest officer. So I got in his way to slow him down so you guys could get him.”

Alongside the video, the Columbus Division of Police added that “Bill,” who uses a cane, had been visiting the West Columbus Library “with his granddaughter” at the time of the incident.

Describing what happened next, police wrote that “Bill stuck out a back leg to trip the suspect who was running from police.”

“That move likely saved the 18-year-old suspect’s life,” they continued. “Police recovered a Glock 9 MM pistol with a high capacity extended clip containing 29 rounds. The suspect, with a lengthy criminal record, went back to jail. No one was injured.”

The video did not address what had led to the police chase and what the 18-year-old suspect had been arrested for, although in an interview with Inside Edition, police named the suspect as Shawn Briggs. The Columbus Division of Police did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

“I just felt as a citizen of this town I had a responsibility to act, to help,” the helpful bystander said in the video after being thanked by an officer. “I think people are supposed to help.”

Commenting on the footage, one officer in the video said, “You can tell he’s timing it out perfectly. He made the decision early and it’s great watching that footage.”

Wyatt Cenac: It’s Not Trump’s Job to End Police Shootings

HBO

Wyatt Cenac knows the assumption. Former Daily Show correspondent gets his own late-night HBO talk series: He’s going to rail against Trump.

“It felt like we could talk about Trump and the presidency, but a lot of people do that,” Cenac says about his new series, Wyatt Cenac’s Problem Areas. “Unless you have some damning video of that guy beating a baby seal while screaming the word n—er over and over again… even then I don’t think he’d get impeached.”

Problem Areas, produced by John Oliver and premiering Friday night, finds Cenac traveling the country over the course of 10 episodes to explore different topics having to do with the effects of police on society, ranging from how officers are hired and trained to how they interact with the homeless and the transgender population.

Atlanta Police Attempt to Quell Conspiracies About Missing CDC Employee

Screenshot/Fox 5

During a Tuesday press conference, the police major of the Atlanta Police department provided an update regarding the disappearance of an employee for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Maj. Michael O’Connor said 35-year-old Timothy Cunningham, who went missing without a trace two weeks ago, did not recently receive a promotion despite previous reports according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. The Morehouse and Harvard graduate was an epidemiologist with the chronic disease department of the CDC. Previous reports stated he was a commander of the U.S. Health Services department.

O’Connor also confirmed Cunningham would not have been in the presence of infectious diseases at his place of employment. The officer stated the aforementioned in an effort to silence any conspiracies as to whether his disappearance was motivated by potential knowledge of any impending public health scares. The officer said he worked within the chronic disease department.

Cunningham was last seen by co-workers at the CDC’s Chamblee, GA office on Feb. 12. Shortly after being formally informed he would not receive the promotion, he reportedly told his managers he felt ill and left early. He has not been seen or heard from since. Cunningham left behind his phone, wallet and car. His family does not believe he left on his own accord.

“This is an extremely unusual set of circumstances,” O’Connor said. “It is not common for us to find someone’s entire belongings.”

Police Commander Shot Dead in Downtown Chicago In Broad Daylight

A senior Chicago police commander was shot dead on Tuesday in a brazen early afternoon shooting that has even shocked a city where gun crime has become the norm.

Commander Paul Bauer, 53, was shot multiple times by a man reported by the Chicago Tribune to be a four-time felon known to police who was wearing body armour at the time of the shooting around 2pm Tuesday.

Bauer, a married father survived by a 13-year-old daughter, is believed to be the most senior police officer to be shot and killed in Chicago since the 1980s, and the first officer of any rank to be killed in 7 years.

Police Confirm Logan Paul Really Did Citizens Arrest an Intruder. Here’s Who He Collared.

Embattled YouTube superstar Logan Paul issued a citizen’s arrest on Tuesday night after a fan broke into his LA mansion—and it wasn’t just a prank, police have confirmed to The Daily Beast.

Around 10 p.m. on Tuesday night, Paul came home to find a man downstairs sitting on his couch charging his iPhone phone.

The man, 20-year-old, Tahj Deondre Speight, was no friend of Paul’s or any of the other vloggers in the house, and had apparently entered the residence through the unlocked front door.

Jennifer Hudson Police Report Details Domestic Violence Claims Against David Otunga: ‘Don’t Have My Son Around Your F*cking Boyfriend’

Now that Jennifer Hudson’s ex-fiancé David Otunga has been cleared of domestic violence charges, her police report has been released and it contains great detail of her allegations.

via TMZ:

She told cops in the early hours of November 16 she and Otunga were arguing over where their son, David Jr., would sleep that night. She said they had been arguing earlier in the evening because he was upset that David Jr. was at a recording studio with her and a producer who David claimed was her new boyfriend. She says David said, “Don’t have my son around your f***ing boyfriend,” adding he would come to the studio to “f*** him up.”

Jennifer — who denies the producer was her boyfriend — claimed during the argument David picked up their son, said “I’m not leaving” and took David Jr. upstairs to a bathroom. She followed and she claims he pushed her with both hands to shove her out of the bathroom. She claims she stumbled backward and yelled for her security guard. The guard says he never heard her call for him.

David has vehemently denied laying a hand on her.

The police report also references an incident in April 2017, in which Jennifer claims she went into their kitchen to find David sitting next to a gun and staring ominously at her. She concedes he told her it was a toy gun and removed it from the house.

Jennifer got a restraining order the day after the bathroom incident forcing David out of the family home. She has since dropped the restraining order and they have struck a temporary custody agreement.

We don’t know what happened in their home, but what we do know is that this incident isn’t outside of the realm of possibility.

11-Year-Old Held at Gunpoint by Police Looking for White Aunt

Screenshot/WOOD-TV

A Michigan girl was held at gunpoint and later arrested by cops who claimed to be looking for her aunt.

WOOD-TV reports Grand Rapids police officers came up to 11-year-old Honestie Hodges as she was leaving her home and held the young girl at gunpoint. Cops then handcuffed her and put her in a police car.

The officers in question said they were looking for a suspect in a stabbing. The person of interest was Honestie’s 40-year-old White aunt Carrie Manning who allegedly stabbed her younger sister. Cops went to the house where Hodges and her mother lived as they believed she may have sought refuge in the home.

The cops’ belligerent actions toward Honestie’s are unsettling given the young girl clearly didn’t fit the same description as the older White woman.

“It made me feel scared and it made me feel like I did something wrong,” Honestie told WOOD-TV.

She said the frightening interaction has even deterred her from wanting to pursue a career in law enforcement.

“When my mom was walking past, I was putting my hands through the little bars, banging on the windows screaming please don’t let them take me,” she continued. “I wanted to be a detective or police officer, but now I don’t want anything to do with those kind of things.”

An internal investigation into the incident has been launched.

Terry Crews Files a Police Report Alleging Sexual Assault

Terry Crews has decided to take action after revealing he was once sexualy assaulted by a ‘high level’ Hollywood executive.

According to TMZ, Terry filed a police report on the assault.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Crews went to cops nearly a month after posting on Twitter that a high-level Hollywood executive “came over 2 me and groped my privates” at a Hollywood function.

Crews came forward with the allegations following mounting accusations against former movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. Because the alleged incident occurred last year and within the statute of limitations in Cali, it’s possible Crews coming forward could trigger a criminal investigation.

We spoke to Terry’s wife days after the accusation, and she said there’s a reason why rich, powerful men get away with it.

The executive behind the assault has been identified by some outlets as Adam Venit, the head of WME.

This Oakland Teen Is Creating an App to Prevent Police Brutality

George Hofstetter

A Bay Area teenager is inventing an app to tackle police brutality. 17-year-old George Hofstetter created the app CopStop which aims to inform users on the best behavioral practices when being apprehended by police officers.

CopStop is being developed by his own company George Hofstetter Technologies Inc. which he founded when he was just 16 years old. The app will essentially a digitalized version of the conversation Black parents often have with children about being approached by law enforcement official.

The app has yet to be released as the young techie has to fix a few errors. But it may be a while before we get to see it as his main focus is applying to college. In the meantime, apps Five-O, Cop Watch and I’m Getting Arrested are also focused on ensuring users’ safety around cops.

Hofstetter also has another app in the works called Connect the Dots. The app will allow Black students attending predominantly white institutions to connect with another.

BEST DEAL UPDATE (UK):

Were the NFL Players Protesting Police Brutality or Trump On Sunday?

NFL's Oakland Raiders Take A Knee

President Donald Trump’s condemnation of athletes who don’t stand during the national anthem moved more athletes to take a knee during the pre-game tradition on Sunday than did Colin Kaepernick’s months-long peaceful protests against police brutality last year.

During Sunday’s football games, a number of players took part in a widespread protest of the national anthem.

Yet, the only update in the yearlong controversy of whether athletes should mix their politics with their profession was that a widely abhorred president chastised it.

Prior to Trump’s strongly worded criticisms of the NFL at an Alabama rally on Friday, NFL players were privy to the suffering police brutality was causing in the Black community. They knew the killings of unarmed Black men were so frighteningly frequent, former fellow player Kaepernick was compelled to risk his career to protest it. They didn’t—or shouldn’t have—needed strongly worded opposition from an unstable president to realize the urgency of the former San Francisco 49er’s game-changing movement.

So did the NFL players know why they were kneeling on Sunday?

The players may have simply been rebelling against Trump to prove their right to free speech after the president verbally attacked the league. Or some players may have collectively decided White supremacy has done too much talking and it was finally time to use their platform as a tool of resistance. A few others (*cough* Ray Lewis *cough*) may have just been fearful that if they opted out of this protest yet again they’d confirm their status as absolute sellouts.

We can’t confirm what any of the players were thinking when they chose to take a knee for the first time. But what we do know is police killings such as those that moved Kaepernick to action in August have yet to have the same effect on the majority of the players.

Last week, former St. Louis police officer Jason Stockley was acquitted for killing Black motorist Anthony Lamar Smith in 2011. If anything, Stockley’s freedom should have incited a wave of protests. Yet, by instructing NFL players to “get that son of a b**tch off the field” in reference to national anthem protesters, Trump simply rehashed what the NFL was, in essence, already doing by blackballing Kaepernick.

The hypocrisies of other players left little room for question in their motives. Former Ravens player Ray Lewis and Buffalo Bills’ LeSean McCoy criticized Kaepernick’s act of resistance within the past two months yet still sat out the anthem on Sunday.

@jemelehill 😩😂 #pettypost #raylewis

A post shared by PettyPost®NYC 🇯🇲🗽 (@pettypost) on

Calls for players to #taketheknee that began circulating on social media Saturday—as well as the general offense taken in Trump’s comments—probably made it easier for those who were scared to take a knee prior to the weekend. Not only did NFL bigwigs perform indignation, a fair number of people felt their president’s statements were harsh, unnecessary and insensitive.

Trump’s callous and dog-whistle language forced athletic players to realize the pressing need for unity among one another—which folks such as Lewis and McCoy resisted when they spoke out against Kaepernick. Shows of solidarity among the league are touching and all, but protesting the national anthem is much larger than the league. Taking a knee isn’t about coming together against a hot-headed White supremacist, it’s about calling attention to the lives regularly being lost to these supremacists during traffic stops and while walking home from the store.

Kaepernick’s kneeling was certainly an exercise in freedom of speech, but its purpose was to draw attention to the rampant police killings of Black people. The majority of the movement Sunday was more than likely well-intentioned but it appears the significance of kneeling has either been lost on some of the players or they’re simply worried about the wrong things.

Will NFL players continue to follow in Kaepernick’s footsteps or was Sunday’s opting out just a temporary form of rebellion? We’re interested to see what will happen in the games to come.

NFL Player Michael Bennett Says He Was Assaulted by Las Vegas Police

Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett says he was restrained and had a gun pointed at him by officers of the Las Vegas Police Department last month for no reason other than being black and being at the “wrong place at the wrong time.”

Bennett posted a message on social media describing the incident.

Bennett says he was in Las Vegas on Aug. 26 on his day off to attend the Floyd Mayweather–Conor McGregor fight. After the fight, Bennett says he headed back to his hotel when he heard what he thought were gunshots.

He says he ran away from the area seeking safety when he was confronted by a Las Vegas police officer who ordered him to the ground.

“All I could think of was ‘I’m going to die for no other reason than being black and my skin color is somehow a threat.’

“Terrified and confused by what was taking place, a second officer came over and forcefully jammed his knee into my back making it difficult for me to breathe,” Bennett wrote.

Bennett says his fingers went numb because the handcuffs were so tight. He repeatedly asks the officers what he did to be handcuffed.

Later, Bennett says he was placed into the back of a police car and only released when officers verified his name and that he was professional football player.

“The system failed me,” Bennett wrote. “I can only imagine what Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice and Charleena Lyles felt.”

Bennett says he has hired an attorney to investigate the incident and that he plans to explore his legal options, including a potential civil suit for violation of his civil rights.

Bennett has said he plans to protest all season during the playing of the national anthem to shed a light on racial injustice in the United States.
