Man Wears 'Fuck the Police' Shirt to court & wins trial! Epic!
Citizen journalist Michael Burns recently witnessed a large group of police shutting down a peaceful gathering near highway 27 in Broward County, Florida, at around 1:30 in the morning.
Burns decided to stop and film the encounter, to provide some assistance to the victims who were at risk of having their rights violated by police.

Are Black men really murdered at higher rates than whites?
There doesn't need to be another article about if this is a fact or not. The new discussion is how do we fix that problem instead of just accept it as a part of the world that we live in.

Structural Racism Looks Like Stop & Frisk Thanks Bill Bratton!
Try to vote racist policies down as unconstitutional & see what happens.. the story starts like this: " Three days before he was sworn in as New York City’s 109th mayor, Bill de Blasio announced he would drop the city’s appeal of Judge Shira Scheindlin’s ruling finding the NYPD’s aggressive stop-and-frisk tactics unconstitutional."
