Two New Orleans police officers were arrestedand fired from the force earlier this week after attacking another patron at a bar while they were off-duty.



A report from The New Orleans Advocate based on newly released court records Thursday reveals that the two officers, Spencer Sutton, 24, and John Galman, 26, confronted the man, Jorge Alberto “George” Gomez, because he was wearing a camouflage shirt.



As the Advocate reported, Sutton claimed not to remember what happened when questioned by investigators, but according to Gomez, the altercation began when Galman approached Gomez, said he was a Marine, and asked Gomez if he had served in the military.Gomez, a U.S. native raised in Honduras who now lives in New Orleans, said Galman asked him if he was even “American.” He speaks Spanish and English with a slight accent and said he served in Louisiana’s Army National Guard and served a tour of duty in Iraq...







Two insecure punks. Glad they got fired.

2018: The Summer of Hate in America, all caught on tape
August 1, 2018, 10:07 AM PDT
: https://www.yahoo.com/kat...29949.html
(see video at link provided)
>
This summer, social media seems to be flooded with viral videos depicting overt acts of racism in the U.S. — from immigrants being openly disparaged to an alarming number of posts showing Americans calling fellow citizens the N word. Viewers can’t help but wonder if this is because Americans have cameras in their pocket at nearly all times, or an actual rising tide of hate unleashed by these divisive political times.

This month, a woman was harassed in an Illinois park by a man for wearing a shirt he deemed “un-American” because it featured the Puerto Rican flag. Just last week, an Ohio business owner apologized for calling a black man the N word several times while confronting him after he thought he was cut off while driving — after footage of the encounter went viral. These are just two of the multitude of incidents captured on video that have dominated social media this summer.


But is it a rising trend? The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), one of America’s largest civil rights organizations, released a statement regarding a new study showing a rise in hate crimes last year, conducted by the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino. According to new data, “hate crime totals for the 10 largest cities rose for four straight years to the highest level in a decade.”

The NAACP says there is a direct correlation between the rise in reported hate crimes and those seen on social media, and President Trump’s at times divisive rhetoric and policies.

Lecia Brooks, outreach director of the Southern Poverty Law Center — a nonprofit legal advocacy organization specializing in civil rights and public interest litigation that monitors hate incidents and hate crimes — says this is a trend that grew after the 2016 presidential election.

“It really started with the presidential campaign and [Trump’s] vilification and dehumanization of Mexicans, and making fun of people with disabilities, and vilifying Muslims as terrorists. And then he won. … It’s encouraging this type of behavior,” she said.

“This has been a general, overall emboldenment on the part of people to express bias, bigotry and racism in ways that we haven’t seen since the 1950’s,” she added.

Brooks says one of the reasons Americans are seeing more overtly racist encounters on social media is because people want to cast light on these incidents.

“As we continue to move more to the digital age, people are recording it more,” said Brooks. “People are paying attention to that more, and wanting to document these things in an attempt to stop them — so that’s what we’re seeing.

NAACP SEES CONTINUED RISE IN HATE CRIMES, LEGACY OF TRUMP’S RACISM

(yes I feel racism is on the rise,)
i got in a fender bender a short while back. luckily i was not at fault.
the back passenger fender was messed up pretty bad and was almost dislodged from the frame.
my insurance company sent me to a collision repair shop. i was waited on by the shop owner. after sitting at his desk, he said he'd be right back. after about a half hour, he asked for my proof of insurance, after checking the computer he told me he'd have to charge me $500. because my policy did not provide the deductible. i asked him to call the insurance company, as I was not required to pay a deductible because I was not at fault. he left the desk for another half hr.
in the meantime i phoned my insurance rep and told her about the issue. the rep was nice enough to stay on hold for me. when the collision owner returned, once again he repeated that he couldn't find proof of my having an insurance provided $500. deductible payment.
i then handed him my cell phone so he could talk to my insr agent.
after she confirmed my status he hung up and saw that the info had been transmitted to his computer.
after this was concluded, the owner told me he would not be able to do the repair for at least 8-9 days and would not okay a rental car for me as he felt my car was driveable. so (without any confrontation on my part) i left. when i got in my car, i called my agent again and requested a different collision repair shop.
when I got to the next shop. no problem. got the rental car within the hour and was on my way.
my shoddy experience was unfortunately provided by a white man.
the positive experience was from a mexican collision shop that is well known in the area and has great online reviews.
(was my first experience racist? I think so.)

An Arkansas police officer is fired after telling a group of black men 'you don't belong in my city'

Updated 7:39 AM EDT, Fri August 10, 2018
: https://www.google.com/am...index.html
An Arkansas police officer has been fired after telling a group of African-American men that "you don't belong in my city."

The July 21 encounter with England Police Officer Mike Moore was captured on video by one of the men, Demarcus Bunch, and posted on Facebook on Tuesday.

Bunch, 28, said he and a group of his friends met up in England -- a small city about 30 miles southeast of Little Rock -- to shoot a rap video in the neighborhood where he grew up. He said the officer watched them as they got together and then followed as they drove through town.


Bunch has an uncle who also is an England Police officer, so he said he and his cousin flagged Moore down so they could introduce themselves.

"The reason I walked up (to him) recording is I could kind of feel -- I had a gut feeling -- that there was going to be a bad vibe from the way he followed us everywhere we went," Bunch told CNN.

CNN has attempted to contact Moore but was unsuccessful. England Chief of Police Danna Powell confirmed in a one-sentence news release that Moore was fired on Wednesday.

What happens in the video
In the video, Moore shakes the young men's hands and tells them his name. Bunch and his cousin tell Moore about their uncle and explain that they are shooting a video.

Bunch then says they noticed the officer was following them.

"You know why?" Moore replies. "Because you don't belong in my city."

"We're from here," Bunch replies.

"But you understand, I know who my people are, right? Who belongs here and who doesn't?" Moore says. "We've got gang wars going on, we've got all kinds of stuff. I come from the big city where this stuff is small, okay? So, that's cool. Do your thing."

"You said we don't belong in your city, though?" Bunch asks.

"Can I say something? OK ... I have never seen you here before, and I know almost everybody here," Moore says.

Bunch then points out his address in the neighborhood and tells Moore that he had attended England High School.

Not all people suck. Neo Nazi's suck. White Supremacist's suck. Homophobes suck. Mysogynist's suck. Racist's suck. Trump supporters suck. That's only about 25% of the population, so there's still hope.

well wtf.

if the racist would stop encircling black/african americans and american peoples of color with their circle of guttural hatred on a weekly basis across the u s, then there would one less "circle of hate" for the race based victimised citizens to choose not to be in.

Yep, and that's the thing, most non prison racists are cowards. They wont dare approach someone of similar size as them, and who looks like they could hold their own and will fight. Since trump, some are getting a little bolder but they still wont bring the fight to the neighborhoods where things will definitely pop off.

what I cannot understand is historically white women in the u s have been victims of inequality by white men for decades.
are these racist acting white female knee jerkers feeling so insecure that have a need to feel significant?

Exactly. I always find it interesting that all the times I've been called the n word(as a adult), it has been by someone who was driving by me, in the comfort and security of their car. I'd just be minding my own business when some fool would drive by(and usually going fast) and yell, nigger ! And my response usually has been, "bitch, come back" !!

Damn cowards, you could at least try to run me over, or something. cool
