Detroit Cop Who Killed 7-Year-Old Aiyana Stanley-Jones Walks Free


After two hung juries, the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office has decided not to retry the police officer who killed Aiyana Stanley-Jones in a raid gone horribly wrong four years ago.

Detroit police office Joseph Weekley, 38, shot and killed the sleeping 7-year-old with an MP5 submachine gun as he led a SWAT-like team into her home in search of a murder suspect.


Weekley was indicted more than a year later and has been tried twice before in Stanley-Jones’ death, both times resulting in mistrials. Prosecutors maintain that the officer was negligent and reckless and didn’t follow proper protocol in the May 16, 2010 operation, reports The Detroit Free Press.

I’m outraged – but not surprised.




Full Video of police shooting #KristianaCoignard age 17

Apparently this police station has no pepper spray and no K9.

And who is training these coward officers that they can’t each grab one of her arms so that she can’t pull out a weapon?

Why become an officer if you have no courage to subdue a child?

Why are we paying our officers to shoot our children? Any why do none of them make a move to stop the bleeding? Or give CPR?

Two Cops Hold Down 110 lb College Student, While Third Cop Releases K-9 to Tear Her Apart


Norfolk, VA — A 21-year-old Army private was hospitalized with severe wounds after an incident involving three Norfolk Police officers.

London Colvin is a second-semester junior and Sociology major at Norfolk State University and a private in the 3rd Brigade, 318th Regiment and 78th Training Division, based at Fort Belvoir.

Colvin was at an off-campus party early Sunday morning when a fight broke out. According to her cousin, her and her friends were leaving when the police showed up.

“She was at a party off campus. She said that a fight broke out, and she had nothing to do with the fight. She did say she was at the party, and her and her friends were leaving,” said Whitney Dunn, the victim’s cousin. “She was definitely being loud – she did admit to that.”

Dunn explained to Potomac Local the series of events leading up to the attack:

She told her family that one of the police officers approached her as she was leaving the party to question her. She also told her family that she had nothing to do with the situation, so she didn’t want to talk to the officer.

Colvin was completely within her rights to not to talk to the police officers. Also, unless she was being detained, she would’ve not had to stop. Dunn explains what happened next:

“Her and her friends continued to walk, and she said that she definitely continued to be loud, however they were walking away. The two other police officers approached her – asked her to stop. Whatever the case may be, they had her down on the ground when the dog came. Two of the police officers restrained her on the ground, and then they allowed the dogs to attack her.”

Colvin’s leg was subsequently torn to shreds after the dog was released.



Look what police officers are doing to our children.


This ain’t right.




How Will You Use It? New Website Let’s You Rate and Review Police Officers


Americans find themselves in a state of flux in 2015. Many people are dealing with the hard reality that those who are sworn to protect and serve, often do the exact opposite.

The topic of police behavior is at the forefront of discussions, worldwide. Market reactions to this interest in responsible application of authority as well as interest in the abuse of authority, are popping up online.

Trying to rely on the system, to report on itself, has proven to be a futile task. In instances of police killings alone, the official method for tallying these deaths was shown to be incredibly skewed and inaccurate. 

The unaccountable nature of the state, coupled with today’s network of technologically savvy activists has paved the way for third party accountability sites that are proving to be quite helpful in the struggle for justice.

Up next in the world of answerable innovation is the site CopScore, aptly named for its interface which allows users to submit, “officer performance reviews.”

Anyone can register in a matter of seconds upon going to the site. However, in order to submit a review on an officer, you must know his or her name, department, and title. The form also requires that the registrant specify whether or not the officer arrested them.

If you actually want to post a performance review on CopScore, you will need to sign in and provide the officer’s badge number as well.

The site’s creator, Arion Hardison, explains that he, “put the badge number there because I did not want people posting fake reviews.”

“I wanted only people that had an actual interaction with the Cop to be able to vote,” said Hardison.

Anonymous Responds to Cops Killing Teen Girl, Launches #OpSLFOC (Stop Lethal Force on Children)


Longview, Texas- In a video posted to YouTube this past Saturday, alleged Anonymous member AnonSec 101, announced #OpSLFOC (Stop Lethal Force on Children) in response to the recent killing of teenager Kristiana Coignard by Longview police.

The city of Longview confirmed Monday it had been targeted by hackers, according to the Longview News-Journal.

“We are aware that we were targeted. … We have taken appropriate steps,” city spokesman Shawn Hara said. “One thing that they targeted was the website.”

The shooting of Coignard, who was killed by officers after entering the police station lobby and allegedly threatening officers with a knife, once again raises the question of why there is a nationwide epidemic of police on citizen violence/killing.

According to Think Progress, Coignard lived with her Aunt, Heather Robertson, in Longview.

Robertson said that her niece had been struggling with mental illness, including depression and bipolar disorder, since her mother died when she was four. She had been hospitalized twice in recent years after suicide attempts.

One time, she tried to hang herself. Another time, she drank toilet bowl cleaner. Since arriving in Longview in December, Coignard had been taking medication and regularly seeing a therapist. She had no criminal record and “was only violent with herself, ” Robertson said.

Why are non-lethal options not being utilized when dealing with someone of the physicality of a petite 17-year-old girl?




I’ve seen men armed with a gun taken alive by the police.

The police need to stop shooting our children.




Michelle Alexander talks about the future of race


Lawyer and advocate, Michelle Alexander talks about her concern for criminals and the prison system at a Tedx talk in Columbus.  She argues that the criminal justice system functions like “a system of social control (“race control”) instead of crime control.”  She argues that these prisons serve to create casts and manage “caste control.”  And she dispels myths or commonly held beliefs as to the mass incarceration of African Americans one fact at a time.  Let’s keep the conversation going as we have so much to talk about.
