A video by a University of Wisconsin black student shows police officers in pig’s masks beheaded. The black man wears a sweatshirt that says, “F*ck the police they the biggest gang in AmeriKKKa.”
UW-Madison in a prepared statement condemned the content of the video, but said it was protected by free speech rights
Channel 3000 reported:
MADISON, Wis. (Channel 3000) – A University of Wisconsin-Madison student released a controversial video portraying police officers being beheaded after they put an American flag noose around the neck of an African American man Friday.
Part of the First Wave scholarship program, Eneale Pickett, released the video to promote his clothing line with messages addressing police brutality and racism. In the video people wear sweatshirts that make statements about these issues.
“I would ask for justice but she’s helping the cops burn my body,” one of the sweatshirts in the video said.
The video portrays the police officer as a man in a pig mask. The sound of the video combines speeches from Donald Trump, with the sounds of protests and a consistent heart beat.
While controversial, Pickett considers both the video and the clothing line to be a form of artistic expression.
“This is to start a conversation about police brutality,” Pickett said. “I want people to look deeper than the image on the screen, and to think critically.”
UW police say while they don’t share the views expressed in Pickett’s video, they respect his right to share them.
“We may not agree with the message, but we appreciate and respect people’s opinions and their right to free speech,” UW-Madison police spokesman Marc Lovicott said about the video.
State Senator Steve Nass criticized the video in a release Wednesday.
A 911 call reveals suicide by cop plot by Georgia Tech, non-binary student Scout Schultz who screamed ‘shoot me!’ as the officers pleaded: ‘Nobody wants to hurt you.’
From Daily Mail:
The police officer who shot dead a barefoot, suicidal LGBT activist at Georgia Tech on Saturday has been identified as campus police officer with just one year on the force.
Tyler Beck shot Scout Schultz on the university’s Atlanta campus on Saturday and the man died later in hospital.
The non-binary student’s death sparked protests on campus and police officers’ cars were set on fire.
Schultz, who preferred to be referred to as ‘them’ and did not prescribe to any gender, had left three suicide notes at home and called 911 to report a man fitting their description with ‘long blond hair’ and wearing a ‘white t-shirt’ walking around campus with a knife or gun on his hip.
In a soft voice, the 21-year-old is heard calling 911 before the shooting to report a ‘white male’.
He was filmed firing a single shot, wounding Schultz in the chest after trying to talk the student out of carrying the knife for more than a minute.
Schultz had been screaming ‘shoot me!’ as the officers pleaded: ‘Nobody wants to hurt you.’
The fatal shot was fired as Schultz walked towards one of the officers.
TRANSCRIPT OF 911 CALL
SS: Hey, um I’m over a West Village it looks like there’s somebody skulking around outside.

SS: Uh sure. Scout Schultz.
Black Lives Matter protesters put a child on the hood of a cop car to help smash it. The usual flag burning. Businesses, such as the MX movie theater and Papa Johns, have opted to shut down completely.
Former St. Louis Police officer Jason Stockley had been charged with murder after he shot and killed Anthony Lamar Smith after a car chase in 2011. Protesters took to the streets of St. Louis on Friday after a judge acquitted of murder charges Stockley in the shooting of black man.
Via Blue Lives Matter:
St. Louis, MO – A St. Louis Police Department vehicle has its windshield smashed in, and video of the incident shows the vandals bringing up child to help them (video below.)
In the video, you can see three people are jumping on the hood of a police vehicle. It doesn’t take long to realize that one of them is a child. The people then kick in the windshield before jumping back down.
St. Louis area Walmarts have reportedly pulled all of their ammo off of the shelves, while other businesses choose to board-up windows.
Marielle Mohs reports that Papa Johns Pizza has been boarding up windows, but plans to remain open for deliveries.
Meanwhile, other businesses, such as the MX movie theater, have opted to shut down completely.
After-school activities have also been canceled in the area to ensure that students can get home safe before the situation escalates.
St. Louis Circuit Court Judge Timothy Wilson announced a not guilty verdict on Friday in the Jason Stockley shooting of Anthony Lamar Smith.
“This Court, in conscience, cannot say that the State has proven every element of murder beyond a reasonable doubt, or that the State has proven beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant did not act in self-defense,” Judge Wilson wrote, according to CNN.
There’s no doubt that Stockley acted inappropriately prior to the shooting, but if Anthony Smith had pulled a gun on the officer, then the shooting would have still been self-defense.
The prosecution tried to present a theory that Stockley had planted a gun on Smith after shooting him, but it appears that they lacked evidence to support that.
Judge Wilson noted, “Finally, the court observes, based on nearly thirty years on the bench, that an urban heroin dealer not in possession of a firearm would be an anomaly.”
Governor Eric Greitens has activated the Missouri National Guard and the city has been flooded with police officers in anticipation of civil unrest.

While America watch and pray for victims of hurricane Irma, left-wing Antifa thugs descended upon Portland in response to a “Patriot Prayer” rally on Sunday. Antifa members reportedly launched smoke bombs and other projectiles at police officers, who arrested at least seven people, according to the Portland Police Department, which documented the violence on Twitter. At least two police officers were injured in the violence.

( Daily Mail ) A veteran Houston police officer has perished in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey when his patrol car sank in the floodwaters Sunday.
Sgt Steve Perez, 60, was driving to work in downtown Houston when he found himself trapped in torrents of water at Interstate 45 and the Hardy Toll Road.
Search and rescue crews were able to recover Perez’s body from his flooded vehicle at 8am local time.
Mayor Turner said in a series of tweets this afternoon that Perez, whom he hailed a hero, had served on the force for 34 years and ‘died in trying.’
‘”I’ve got work to do,” Perez told wife, who urged him to reconsider reporting for duty,’ the mayor revealed on social media. ‘Sergeant Perez fulfilled his purpose. His mission is complete. This city ought to celebrate his life. 9K police and fire working to serve.’
Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said during an emotional press conference on Tuesday afternoon that Sgt Perez left his home in the pouring rain at 4.30am on Sunday to report for duty, even though his wife, Cheryl, urged him to stay home because of the dangerous conditions in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.
Perez drove around for two and a half hours, in vain looking for a safe route to his duty station. Eventually, he called his superiors to let them know he was unable to get to the station.
Perez followed protocol and proceeded to a second station, located in Kingwood, according to the police chief.
It was not until Monday that the chain of command realized the Perez had failed to show up for duty Sunday, reported KTRK.
A search operation was launched to locate Perez, and on Monday night a dive team was dispatched to an area around Hardy Toll Road and Beltway 8.
The flooding, however, became too severe and it was not until 8am on Tuesday that the divers, assisted by the Cajun Navy and volunteers, were able to recover the officer’s body.
Perez was part of the traffic enforcement division within the Houston Police Department.

Announcing Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement – Philly!
The Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement has sought since its inception to spread nationwide, and create international connections to further the cause of abolitionism and revolutionary anarchism. Today, August 20, 2017, we are proud to announce the formation of the Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement – Philadelphia Branch (RAM Philly). With the growth of each new branch we inch ever closer to the day when we can realize our revolutionary aspirations, live in a world of true freedom, and decisively eradicate the abhorrence of 21st century slavery.
The struggle in the US seems like an unrelenting weight being pushed down on revolutionary forces, but that same force has been bearing down on criminalized communities for decades with no reprieve. Mosques are being ruthlessly bombed, state agencies and vigilante groups are deporting Latino people with relentless vigor, LGBTQ people are being battered, and the destruction of black life continues unabated as millions languish in the plantations of the modern day slave system
We continue in the legacy of Philadelphia’s rich revolutionary tradition, demonstrated by Mumia Abu Jamal, Russell Maroon Shoatz, and the MOVE organization.
We are now establishing a revolutionary political movement that can confront the challenges ahead of us, and together with Philadelphia based comrades, we are taking one step closer.
