Unarmed black teenager James Means fatally shot by white man who called him “another piece of trash”

  • On Monday night, 15-year-old James Means was reportedly shot and killed by a man he “bumped into” outside of a Dollar General store in Charleston, West Virginia. 
  • Means, a black teenager, was said to be unarmed. 
  • That same night, police arrested William Pulliam, 62, in connection with the shooting. Pulliam had gone to dinner after the shooting.
  • Pulliam was white and carrying a gun, despite no permit to own a firearm due to a previous conviction for domestic violence
  • Pulliam reportedly “admitted” to fatally shooting Means, telling police, “The way I look at it, that’s another piece of trash off the street.”
  • A GoFundMe has been set up for Means’ funeral
  • Pulliam, whose criminal history includes physical abuse of his wife and daughter, has a history of harassing teens in the area.

Fifteen.

“But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, 

pursuing invariably the same Object 

evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, 

it is their right, 

it is their duty, 

to throw off such Government, 

and provide new Guards for their future security.”

No Justice, No Peace (9/21/16, Part 1): Another night has turned rebellious in Charlotte. Protesters took the streets in downtown Charlotte, specifically around the EpiCentre, expressing outrage at the murder of Keith Lamont Scott, a fixture in the local community. Reports vary between the police and witnesses–police claim that Scott was brandishing a gun (in an open carry state), witnesses say he was carrying a book. Protests began peacefully, but escalated throughout the night, particularly after riot police swarmed the scene. One protester was shot dead and remains in critical condition (the police claim it was by a civilian, witnesses on the frontline claim it was by police), while several other protesters were injured. The night is still early, and protesters are in the street. Pray for safety for everyone out there. 

UPDATE: A state of emergency has been declared in North Carolina, and the National Guard is being deployed to Charlotte. The protester who was shot is NOT dead, but instead on life support. (Part 2)

Baltimore Country Police Fatally Shoot a Black Woman and Injure Her 5-Year-Old Child.

23-years-old Korryn Gaines has been shot by Baltimore County police on Monday. Her 5-year-old son was shot in a limb and taken to the hospital. The boy is expected to survive.

Three officers went to Gaines’ apartment in Randallstown at approximately 9:20AM to serve arrest on her and a man for traffic violations.

All the videos Gaines shot before she was shot and all her media are being deleted!

Can anyone tell me since when a 5-year-old child is a threat?!

New York Police Arrest Woman During News Interview for Speaking Out


In a chilling display of police intimidation, Rochester police dressed in riot gear snatched a woman away as she was conducting an on-camera interview with a news reporter during a protest against police abuse in New York Saturday night.

“I’m not going to hit anybody, I’m not going to shoot anybody. I’m going to speak to you, I’m going to use my words. I’m going to articulate myself because the message needs to be heard, the message is important. We don’t need this exact format, we need us to come out in numbers, we need more Rochesters.”

no justice no peace

Her name is Sapphire Williams. She was released the next morning but t s being charged with disorderly conduct. http://www.cnn.com/2016/07/14/us/ny-protester-rushed-by-police-during-interview/

Why do they always come at us like we’re resisting they didn’t even read her her rights they just jumped on her like she pulled a out broomstick and was about to leap into the air

So if any of y’all wanted to see what a REAL infringement on free speech looks like, here you go. This is some fucking bullshit. And she’s been charged with “disorderly conduct” somehow

Can she use this video to fight for this egregious violation of her rights?

Unarmed Black Man With Hands Up Shot By Police.

Charles Kinsey, 47, a behavior therapist from South Florida was shot in the leg three times by the police in North Miami while laying on the ground with his arms up and trying to help his patient with autism who had run away from a group home.

It all started when someone called 911 and said there was a man walking around with a gun. However it was Kinsey’s patient who was sitting on the ground cross-legged, playing with a toy truck.

Charles got shot by police despite telling them he was only trying to help his patient.

The police shot him, handcuffed him and left him on ground bleeding.

North Miami police have not released much information at
all. They haven’t released the officer’s name, they haven’t given us an update
on the investigation. However, they did say that the state attorney is now a part of
this investigation.

Charles Kinsey: Sir, why did you shoot me?

Officer: Idk.

WHAT THE HELL

I’m so glad he’s alive..

This is FUCKING RIDICULOUS, and I hope anyone who’s ever been a carer is as pissed off as I am

“WE ARE SICK AND TIRED OF THE KILLINGS OF YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN IN OUR COMMUNITIES.

    IT IS UP TO US TO TAKE A STAND AND DEMAND THAT THEY ‘STOP KILLING US.’

    WE DON’T NEED SYMPATHY. WE NEED EVERYONE TO RESPECT OUR LIVES.


    WE’RE GOING TO STAND UP AS A COMMUNITY AND FIGHT AGAINST ANYONE WHO
BELIEVES THAT MURDER OR ANY VIOLENT ACTION BY THOSE WHO ARE SWORN TO
PROTECT US SHOULD CONSISTENTLY GO UNPUNISHED.

    THESE ROBBERIES
OF LIVES MAKE US FEEL HELPLESS AND HOPELESS BUT WE HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT
WE ARE FIGHTING FOR THE RIGHTS OF THE NEXT GENERATION, FOR THE NEXT
YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN WHO BELIEVE IN GOOD.

    THIS IS A HUMAN
FIGHT. NO MATTER YOUR RACE, GENDER, OR SEXUAL ORIENTATION. THIS IS A
FIGHT FOR ANYONE WHO FEELS MARGINALIZED, WHO IS STRUGGLING FOR FREEDOM
OR HUMAN RIGHTS.

    THIS IS NOT A PLEA TO ALL POLICE OFFICERS
BUT TOWARD ANY HUMAN BEING WHO FAILS TO VALUE LIFE. THE WAR ON PEOPLE OF
COLOR AND ALL MINORITIES NEEDS TO BE OVER.

    FEAR IS NOT AN EXCUSE. HATE WILL NOT WIN.


    WE ALL HAVE THE POWER TO CHANNEL OUR ANGER AND FRUSTRATION INTO
ACTION. WE MUST USE OUR VOICE TO CONTACT THE POLITICIANS AND LEGISLATORS
IN OUR DISTRICTS AND DEMAND SOCIAL AND JUDICIAL CHANGES.


WHILE WE PRAY FOR THE FAMILIES OF ALTON STERLING AND PHILANDO CASTILE,
WE WILL ALSO PRAY FOR AN END TO THIS PLAGUE OF INJUSTICE IN OUR
COMMUNITIES.

    CLICK IN TO CONTACT THE POLITICIANS AND LEGISLATORS IN YOUR AREA. YOUR VOICE WILL BE HEARD.”
