Family members of unarmed black man shot by police sue city of Sacramento

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Family members of an unarmed young black man slain by two Sacramento policemen last year sued the officers and the city on Monday for wrongful death, claiming racial profiling and use of excessive force.

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Sacramento by the parents, grandparents and children of shooting victim Stephon Clark, 22, seeks damages in excess of $20 million.

Marine veteran says Vallejo cop assaulted him for filming traffic stop

A U.S. Marine veteran and filmmaker says he was assaulted by a Vallejo police officer and suffered a concussion just for filming the officer from his front porch on Jan. 22.

Adrian Burrell, 28, posted video of the encounter to Facebook this morning and provided it to Bay City News. He has retained civil rights attorney John Burris, who called the case "egregious" and said the officer's use of force was "unnecessary and unreasonable."

Vallejo has a history of problem cops. Even before the city almost filed for bankruptcy. At one time gang violence there was over the top.

On the whole Vallejo is getting better, but dirty cops is not anything new.

Cindy McCain calls cops because she saw a woman with a child of a different ethnicity.

Cindy McCain, the wife of the late Republican U.S. Senator John McCain, said that she prevented a human trafficking situation, but the claim was later denied by police, reported Arizona family News.

“I came in from a trip I’d been on and I spotted—it looked odd—it was a woman of a different ethnicity than the child, this little toddler she had, and something didn’t click with me,” she told KTAR Mac & Gaydos radio show. “I went over to the police and told them what I saw, and they went over and questioned her, and, by God, she was trafficking that kid,” she said.

Every stepparent in an interracial relationship (with white children)'s nightmare. Never had it happen to me, personally, but twice I was "mistaken" so-called for the goddamn nanny.

It's like...friends. This is 2015 (at the time). This is not 1915.

And glen wants to prattle on about "100 years ago..." same mentality persists, 100 years later.

This was stupid of Cindy McCain to do. Unless she observed the woman mistreating or abusing the child she should have just kept her mouth shut. This is 2019, not 1959 and multiracial families are not against the norm but are becoming more and more common. Society is accepting multiracial families as evidenced in TV commercials showing interracial marriages and families. If businesses are not accepting of multiracial families then they wouldn't show them in their ads because it would be bad for their business. Just as 15 years ago you wouldn't see a lesbian or gay couple on TV or in ads and now they are common place.

Cindy McCain needs to come into the 21st century.

Yes and I don't usually express "disappointment" about Republicans since I consider them to basically be social writeoffs, but one thing I did appreciate about her and Meghan back in 2008 was them participating in the No H8 campaign. I think it did a lot for getting more somewhat-normally oriented conservatives to stop being so dumb and stupid and ignorant about samesex marriage. So one would THINK she'd sort of kind of know better on a parallel social issue.

Evidently, this is too much to ask of people like her. :problem:

dumb bigot

A black Missouri man was humiliated during his birthday party after a waitress gave up on his group — and managers called police to escort them out.

Terrence Dickerson, a chef and recording artist, made reservations for 30 friends and relatives Saturday at Blue Sky Tower Grill in Richmond Heights, but he said the group was kicked out before the party was set to end, reported KTVI-TV.

I guess we can be thankful that the cops didn't start shooting people.

11-year-old student arrested by school resource officer after refusing to recite Pledge of Allegiance

An 11-year-old at Lawton Chiles Middle Academy in Lakeland, Florida was arrested and removed from class after a substitute teacher demanded the student recite the Pledge of Allegiance.

The teacher, who was filling in on February 4, asked her sixth-grade class to stand and recite the pledge, but the student refused, reportedly telling the substitute teacher that the flag was racist, and adding that the National Anthem was offensive to black people.

New York to ban hairstyle policies that discriminate against black people

New York City will ban discrimination based on hairstyles, a rule meant to stop policies that penalize black people.

The New York City Commission on Human Rights issued the new regulations on Monday. Believed to be the first in the US, they give African American New Yorkers the legal right to wear their hair in afros, cornrows, locks, twists, braids, Bantu knots and other styles.

Arizona marshal threatens to have pre-teen journalist ‘thrown in juvey’ for reporting the news

In the town of Patagonia, Arizona, Marshal Joseph Patterson is being scrutinized by the local government because of a video that shows him threatening a pre-teen journalist with arrest on Monday, February 18.

The journalist is 12-year-old Hilde Kate Lysiak, who publishes the website the Orange Street News. According to a February 18 article Lysiak wrote and posted on her site, she was riding her bike while covering a story when Patterson stopped her—and in a video, Patterson can be heard saying, “You can tape me, but what I’m going to tell you is if you put my face on the Internet, it’s against the law. I’m not giving you permission to use my picture or my face on the Internet.”
