We have been shocked when we saw the brutal pictures of Rodney King being beaten by LAPD officers. We had been even far more shocked when those same officers were acquitted of any crimes in connection with that beating.
Nevertheless, that shock continues to echo across America from police brutality cases and it is time for Americans to say “sufficient is sufficient” and began to fight back to protect our communities from those becoming paid to shield us.
Recently in Houston, a 16-year-old robbery suspect, Chad Holley, was shown on tape getting physically assaulted by members of the Houston police division despite allegedly laying on the ground and having his hands behind him and not showing any resistance to these officers.
Far more video footage has also surfaced in Houston from other alleged police brutality instances, like the alleged assault of 26-year-old Henry Madge. In addition, two Rutgers University students, Kareem Najjar and Jake Kostman, accused neighborhood police of busting into their house and abusing them although they had been still asleep.
In the African American community we have usually been taught to stay compliant when confronted by police officers and we ought to be compliant to stay away from incidents like the aforementioned police brutality instances. However, there is no law in America that says we have to be silent and accept substandard therapy from those who can’t manage the energy they have been provided.
In Houston, many in the minority and majority communities criticize civil correct activist Quanell X for getting addicted to the spotlight and out for his personal advantage and not the advantage of the community. Nonetheless, Quanell X along with city leaders like Rev. D.Z. Cofield, Rev. James Dixon and City Councilperson Jolanda Jones seem like the only leaders not afraid to place their neck on the line for the advantage of the community.
“There is a dilemma with police brutality and use of excessive force that will no longer be tolerated,” explained Cofield, who is president of the Houston chapter of the NAACP.
In low-income Houston neighborhoods like Acres Houses, residents complain that officers do not even respond to their complaints about crime, but count on those identical residents to be silent when it comes to police brutality cases.
This mentality is not just germane to the city of Houston, but to all areas where the voiceless are intimidated and threatened to sustain the status quo.
All through my quick life I have encountered excellent and negative police officers, like I have encountered excellent and bad folks from all other walks of life as properly. However, it is unfortunate that the excellent cops are stereotyped simply because of the actions of rogue cops. Nevertheless, these great cops are partly responsible since just like citizens have to be courageous in order to quit corruption, those great officers have to be just as courageous if they are to modify the unfavorable culture in many police departments.
Throughout the Civil Rights Movement, laws only started to modify when our people began fighting back for their God-offered rights. In 2011, police brutality situations will not cease until we cease becoming silent. And just possibly if we raise our voices in unison, these identical officers that shocked us with these current police brutality situations will be just as shocked that we are not going to take it any longer.
New York Police Shed It More than a Drone

The SHARK group thanks these commenters who have a grasp of the US Constitution, and the important rights it bestows on our citizens. Brave Americans have died to preserve and defend these rights, and it is tragic that so numerous folks are not only unaware of their rights, but in addition are willing to give them up, and even insist that other people do the identical.
The Constitution provides Americans the chance to stand, but standing requires a spine – anything really a number of people lack nowadays. We will continue to stand strong with other proud Americans.
November 13, 2016, a SHARK team uses an Angel drone to get an aerial view of Marshall Farms, a organization in North Rose, New York that raises beagles, ferrets and other animals for investigation.
Even though completely no laws were broken, police created an illegal targeted traffic stop that lasted more than an hour. The bullying and incompetence is difficult to believe.
Per the ACLU: Police could quit and briefly detain you only if there is reasonable suspicion that you committed, are committing or are about to commit a crime.
The police lost their credibility, their dignity, and any legitimacy by selling out to a organization that sells animals for research. Shame on the New York State Police and the Wayne County Sheriff’s Department.

There is no law against flying more than private home.
Even though we quite a lot appreciate the supportive comments numerous people have left, we ask you to consider that threats against police officers is not the way to go.

Harming others is what we are trying to finish, so let’s not threaten even these with whom we very considerably disagree. We undoubtedly comprehend the emotion, possessing noticed so a lot corruption firsthand, but violence is not the answer.
