Seems this is becoming normalized in our society. SMH
Color of Change has released a revolting video of a swarm of Houston police kicking and beating a 15-year old kid named Chad Holley who was running away from a burglary.
Some cops kicked him repeatedly in the head and legs, others punched his torso — all while Holley was lying face down with his hands behind his head in surrender.

Some folks are just not kid friendly. Why would this idiot ever apply to substitute?

The Colliers of Largo, Fla., have yet to recover from authorities’ charging the 73-year-old family matriarch with domestic battery.
“Shocked,” Theresa Collier said of her arrest. “I am so shocked after everything that happened. I wanted to crawl into a hole and die.”
The trouble began last Tuesday when two officers from the Largo Police Department responded to a domestic violence call by Collier’s granddaughter, Felicia Collier.
The young woman, 18, was visiting her grandmother’s house to use the computer. She is finishing her senior year of studies online because she had been kicked out of Catholic school for cursing out a nun, Theresa Collier said.
“She didn’t want to listen to me. She kept saying ‘F-you,’ and using the F-word about our family members,” the elder Collier said. “I had enough of it. I was so upset that I got up and slapped her across the face. She grabbed my wrists and I couldn’t move.”
The young woman then called police to report the alleged incident.
Felicia Collier tried many times to convince officers not to arrest her grandmother but to no avail, according to police. “The next thing you know they are arresting me,” Collier said. “We didn’t know what was going on.”
This is why we need to get back to raising and displining our children. They have lost their minds. So you have your Grandmother arrested for slapping you after you curse her out – in her house?
It’s sickening that our society has come to this and that the government aids this foolishness. Grandma should have knocked her trifling behind out.

COLORADO SPRINGS — This tax-averse city is about to learn what it looks and feels like when budget cuts slash services most Americans consider part of the urban fabric.
More than a third of the streetlights in Colorado Springs will go dark Monday. The police helicopters are for sale on the Internet. The city is dumping firefighting jobs, a vice team, burglary investigators, beat cops — dozens of police and fire positions will go unfilled.
The parks department removed trash cans last week, replacing them with signs urging users to pack out their own litter.
Neighbors are encouraged to bring their own lawn mowers to local green spaces, because parks workers will mow them only once every two weeks. If that.
Water cutbacks mean most parks will be dead, brown turf by July; the flower and fertilizer budget is zero.
City recreation centers, indoor and outdoor pools, and a handful of museums will close for good March 31 unless they find private funding to stay open. Buses no longer run on evenings and weekends. The city won’t pay for any street paving, relying instead on a regional authority that can meet only about 10 percent of the need.
“I guess we’re going to find out what the tolerance level is for people,” said businessman Chuck Fowler, who is helping lead a private task force brainstorming for city budget fixes. “It’s a new day.”

Well, I guess in today’s society you can practically do whatever you want to a black female and get away with it. It’s reported that a Milwalkee “teacher” became so frustrated with a 7 year old student, Lamya Cannon that she took scissors and cut her braid off in front of the classroom. Apparently Lamya was absentmindedly playing in her hair during class (typical behavior for children this age). School administrator’s are characterizing this incident (I consider it assault) as the teacher simply being “stressed” out due to budget constraints.
Lamya Cammon is angry, confused, and scared by the incident last week in which the apparently frustrated teacher cut one of her braids off after she wouldn’t stop playing with them in class.
Cammon, 7, sports a few dozen braids, but one is conspicuously absent.
“She told me to stop playing with it. Then cut it off and sent me back to my desk,” Cammon said.
Cammon’s a first-grader at Congress Elementary and said her teacher used a pair of classroom scissors to cut off one of the braids after she absent-mindedly kept playing with them. Read More
So I guess stress is now an acceptable justification for assault? If the mother of this student became stressed and took scissors to the teacher’s hair, would this behavior also be characterized as simply a result of “stress” or would it be assault? Since when are teachers allowed to CUT CHILDREN”S HAIR? I’ve never read that as a disciplinary action in the schools I’ve dealt with – have you?
This teacher knowingly and willfully laid hands on this child’s person with scissors to degrade and humiliate her in class. She should be brought up on charges. People have been charged for far less than this in our society. It just depends on who the victim is.
I’m not in the mood for sympathizers – so I’m not entertaining it today. “Oh but AJ, the teachers have so much to do”. You know what? That teacher CHOSE HER PROFESSION. She knew when she took this job that she would be dealing with 7 year old children that daydream. If she can’t deal with typical behavior such as inattentiveness by a 7 year old…perhaps the heffa needs to take up arms and go fight in Iraq. Then she can get a clue as to what STRESS is.
BTW- the teacher was “punished” with a $175 fine for “Disorderly Conduct”. Yes……that’s it. She takes scissors to a child’s head and is only charged with “Disorderly Conduct”. SMDH

I’ve been going about my day trying to ignore the foolishness and uproar in this country by some folks because a sitting U.S. President was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. We have looked like buffoons around the world for the last 8 years with the Clueless Cretin of Crawford running our country into the ground. I for one am proud that our President was recognized and awarded for his efforts.

These fools have lost their minds. Why is it an employer can buy a policy on my life without MY permission. I guess they figure if they work you hard enough from doing the job of 5-6 people you’ll keel over in no time – simply more money in their greedy pockets. – cha-ching.
