I’ve seen a lot of people enraged over the Supreme Court’s ruling in Maryland about DNA testing. In Maryland, if you’re arrested for a serious crime, the police can take a DNA sample whether or not you are eventually charged or convicted. For some, that’s a gross invasion of privacy and they’ve taken to the Internet to voice their discontent with the Supreme Court’s ruling to uphold that statute.
Nobody’s really talking about the other side of that coin: prisoners who ask for DNA tests to clear themselves.
Christoper “Xtrav” Beatty was drinking an Arizona in the parking lot of a liquor store in Fayetteville, NC while waiting for his friend who was inside shopping. I hope that tea was amazing, because now he has to go to court for it.
Take some deep breaths or burn some sage or whatever you need to do to get yourself in the calmest space possible before you watch this.
Cops are disgusting.
Let me tell you about most of the police officers I’ve encountered.
A man who told authorities months ago that he wanted to be killed by police entered a suburban Salt Lake City police station Monday and pointed a gun at an officer and a records clerk, prompting at least one other officer to open fire on him, wounding the man in the arm.
The shooting at about 8:30 a.m. in the heart of West Valley City caused panic at a bustling train and bus stop nearby, with people taking cover as they heard gunshots and saw officers storm outside with their weapons drawn. No one else was hurt as the suspect was quickly shot and apprehended.
Shot, but not killed. Apparently, Utah police officers — unlike the NYPD — know how to shoot would-be criminals in the arm instead of shooting-to-kill multiple times and injuring innocent bystanders in the process.
This is so awful it’s comical. You have to laugh because if any of my fellow New Yorkers were to sit and really think about how the NYPD is supposed to be keeping the city safe, you’d probably move.
Sergeant Lesly Charles got upset at some guys for illegally parking on a street in Bensonhurst down in Brooklyn. So, he followed them to a Chinese restaurant, put on his I’m Mr. Big Shit pants, and went on a pretty graphic spiel about his long dick and shoving guns up their asses.
Clearly this guy still has some hostility leftover from childhood about being a black dude named ‘Lesly.’
If you are really about to put handcuffs on a six-year-old girl, you need to take a minute and ask “Is this the very best reaction to the situation or am I just following protocol?”
If you are really about to arrest a pregnant mother and take her toddler away from her because she bought $50 worth of groceries but forgot to pay for the sandwich she was snacking on, you need to take a minute.
If you are really about to arrest a mother of three because her children were less than ten minutes late to school a few times, you need to take a minute.
And if you still feel like you’re making the right decision, take another minute and ask someone else.
