"If I see three or four young black men walking down the street, I have to stop them and check their names. I want them to be afraid every time they see the police that they might get arrested."

Chief Russell Mills to the LA Times after shooting and killing black 89-year-old great grandfather Shawn Monroe at a barbecue unprovoked. Today, he walks free with no charges, despite numerous witnesses and his own admission that he enjoys terrorizing black people.

Tell me again why Black people should be okay with police when they have, since the history of our being kidnapped to this fucking country, have not EVER been about protecting us, but about terrorizing us?

Police are NOT for Black people’s safety. They are about torturing us, terrorizing us and killing us. Period. There is no safety with police. There is no peace keeping with police. They have ALWAYS been a terror to the Black community and I am tired of this fact being pushed to the wayside.

(via sourcedumal)

And Ray Kelly, when he was Commissioner in NYC said the same thing.
Arpaio has said the same thing.
This is a ROUTINE assertion that the point of the police is to be an agent of state terror. And that such terror should be all but exclusively focused on Black and Brown bodies.

Court rules Wal-Mart must compensate workers
~~~
Canada’s Supreme Court ruled Friday that Wal-Mart must compensate former workers at a Quebec store that was closed after they voted to become the first Wal-Mart store in North America to unionize.
The high court ruled in 2009 that Wal-Mart was entitled to close the store in Jonquiere in 2005, seven months after workers voted to unionize. But the workers filed a new case that said Wal-Mart contravened a section of Quebec labor law, which says working conditions must not be altered in any way, shape or form during a unionization process.
The court ruled in a five-to-two decision that the world’s largest retailer modified working conditions for the employees without a valid reason when it shut down. The court ruled an arbiter will determine appropriate reparations, possibly with damages and interest. The store never re-opened. […]

Detroit activists call for UN help as city shuts off water for thousands

Detroit has too much of some things – stray dogs, abandoned houses – and not enough of others, such as residents who pay their water bills.
The latest sign of Detroit’s decline came from the city’s water department, when it said in March it would begin shutting off water for up to 3,000 homes and businesses a week in an attempt to stop the utility from sliding even further into debt.
The announcement sparked outrage among activists groups, who say the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) is going after the city’s most vulnerable citizens to shore up its bottom line.

As the mainstream media continues giving the 3 missing Israelis unrivalled coverage, seven-year-old Palestinian Ali al-Awour passed away last night after succumbing to injuries sustained by an Israeli airstrike on Wednesday in Beit Lahiya, Gaza. The boy was out with his uncle to get food for dinner when the attack took place, killing his uncle instantly.

Your Favorite Banana Company Spent $780,000 Campaigning Against 9/11 Victims

Chiquita, the world’s largest banana company, is locked in a legislative battle with 9/11 victims and families over a bill that could dredge up the fruit conglomerate’s sordid past.

The company has spent nearly $800,000 lobbying Congress over the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, a bill created and supported by a group of 9/11 survivors and family members that would make financiers of terrorism more legally accountable, according to a Daily Beast scoop.
