Cops Brutally Beat Teen in Georgia

UPdate!!

*We’ve got an update from the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office. They have just announced that the deputy who was seen on camera viciously beating a Black Lyft passenger (Roderick Walker) has been terminated, effective immediately.

“The Deputy who repeatedly struck Roderick Walker is being terminated from the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office by order of Sheriff Victor Hill for excessive use of force,” is what the statement from Clayton County Sheriff’s Office says. That now fired deputy’s name was not released by the department.

Also, a WSB-TV (Atlanta) reporter also posted to Twitter a photo of Roderick Walker’s injuries from what appears to be from inside of a jail, where he’s behind plexiglass in a jail uniform … with a swollen eye.

Here is what we initially posted regarding this story …

*First, let us say the details of this situation are scant, but we do know from what we are seeing, that it’s not a good look for the cops, needless to say for the victim.

As you can see in the photo above and the videos below, once again, a young black man is seen being brutally beaten by sheriff’s deputies. One of which put a knee to his neck and punched him in the face.

Here’s more via TMZ:

The man, his cousin and a third person were passengers in a Lyft that was pulled over in Clayton County, Georgia … they say it was pulled over because a tail light was out. They say Sheriff’s deputies asked for his license but he didn’t have one. That’s when they say a deputy asked to see the passengers’ licenses. They asked the officers why they had to show ID since they had done nothing wrong.

There was clearly a confrontation, because the video starts with the man on the ground with 2 deputies on top of him. At one point, you see a deputy punch the man repeatedly in the face, drawing blood.

You hear a woman — apparently the man’s cousin — screaming at the cops to stop punching, and the deputy responds, “He’s biting my hand.”

As the deputy continues to press the man’s head on the pavement he screams, “I’m gonna die!” and “I can’t breathe.” The young child watches as the man on the ground appears to have been rendered unconscious.

We do not know if the man was injured. It appears he was arrested.

The Clayton County Sheriff’s Office tells TMZ, “After being made aware of a video posted on social media involving a Deputy using physical force on a man, Sheriff Victor Hill ordered his entire Internal Affairs Unit to come in and begin an investigation that has been on going since 8pm. The Sheriff has ordered that the Deputy involved be placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.”

American Airlines Addresses Backlash Over ‘Black Lives Matter’ Uniform Pin

*In this era of COVID-19 that has drastically and negatively impacted the airline industry for the past six months, American Airlines (AA) is facing another problem.  The storied airlines carrier is drawing backlash for allowing its employees to wear pins supporting the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement.

“Clearly we live in a time where it is so important to have a dialogue about this important issue of racism in our society and try to find common ground,” an American Airlines executive said in a recent  company-wide statement.  “American is truly committed to having an inclusive culture that is welcoming to all and a reflection of our country and world.”

The uniform pin was designed by AA’s Black Professional Network as a symbol of support.  Black team members asked if they could wear a Black Lives Matter pin after learning that other airlines are allowing their employees to do so.  American Airlines decided to allow them to do it.

However, everyone is not supportive of BLM.  Many American Airlines workers are connected in numerous ways with police officers, as well as customers, who oppose BLM, which is viewed as “anti-cop,” “racist” and “Marxist.”

Some AA employees vowed to wear pins supporting police officers.  There are also customers who are saying they will not fly with American Airlines in the future.

Nevertheless, American Airlines is sticking by its decision.

“We believe Black Lives Matter is an expression of equality, not a political statement,” American Airlines said in a statement.  “It doesn’t mean other lives don’t matter, rather that in our society Black lives should matter and be valued the same as others.  This decision underscores our belief that all people, regardless of race, gender or ethnicity, deserve to be treated with equality and respect.”

‘Racist’ White Bar Owner Charged in Fatal Shooting of Black Protester in Omaha

Published

on

James-Scurlock

*Jake Gardner, the white bar owner who fatally shot a 22-year-old Black man during a Black Lives Matter protest in Omaha on May 30, has been charged with multiple felonies, including manslaughter. 

The grand jury rejected Gardner’s claims that he acted in self-defense in the death of James Scurlock. He also faces charges of attempted first-degree assault, making terroristic threats and weapon use. 

Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine refused to bring any charges against Gardner, stating he acted in self-defense. The case was then presented to a grand jury led by special prosecutor Fredrick D. Franklin, per Complex

“There was evidence that was gathered and presented to the grand jury about activity that Jake Gardner was engaged in prior to even coming in contact with James Scurlock,” Franklin said. “Evidence to reasonably be construed as an intent to use a firearm for purposes of killing someone. You will want to know what it is, and I can’t tell you about it. But what I can tell you is that that evidence comes primarily from Jake Gardner himself.”

An earlier report on EURweb.com noted an Yahoo News exclusive story outlining how witnesses to the fatal shooting claim that a rushed investigation overlooked signs of Gardner’s racist past.

The quick decision to initially not file charges was viewed by many in the community as an example of the ingrained racism within the criminal justice system that has been the subject of nationwide protests.

In addition to several witnesses who said they made repeated attempts to provide police with crucial information in the immediate aftermath of the shooting, Yahoo News spoke to more than half a dozen people, including former employees and patrons of Gardner’s bar, the Hive, who gave firsthand accounts of racist comments and discriminatory policies they say Gardner used. Two family members also offered unique insight into the unabashedly racist culture in which, they say, Gardner was raised.

Omaha police said Gardner has yet to be arrested.

“We are happy, but we recognize that these are still crumbs thrown at us from a white supremacist system,” said Bear Alexander, a member of the Omaha-based ProBLAC organization, told BuzzFeed News. “The fact that it had to go to the grand jury is shameful. We are now changing our signs and chants from ‘arrest Jake Gardner’ to ‘convict Jake Gardner,’ and it is still ‘no justice, no peace.'”

If convicted, Gardner could face up to 95 years in prison, per omaha.com
