well black face is making one hell of a comeback this year huh?
This is Avonte Oquendo.
He is 14
He is Autistic
He cannot communicate verbally
and he has been missing for 11 days now.
There is a $70,000 reward for his safe return.
Anyone who sees him or has information is asked to call 800-577-TIPS.
If you live here in New York City, you can’t walk anywhere right now without seeing a picture of this little boy. It’s heartbreaking.
May he be found safe and returned to his folks who are no doubt suffering.
This isn’t a hoax people. His story has been on the news almost every night since his disappearance. I just watched the report a few seconds ago and thought I should share this on my dash.
If you live in this area, keep an eye out.
Remember, he is severely autistic and can not communicate and has no survival skills. He can not ask for help. He can not tell you his name or where he’s from. If you find him you are to get a hold of him so he does not wander away again until police arrive.
I’ve been seeing his picture/missing ad all over Manhattan and the Bronx. They even have his name and info scrolling on the things that tell you when the train is coming. I hope he’s okay and his family finds him.
A group of young black men were filming at a Houston Walmart near the front entrance, when a cop who can be seen standing nearby at the beginning of the footage suddenly approached them and asked them for ID
One of the men said that he did not have to show his ID, which prompted the officer to draw his Taser and walk towards him. Another member of the group put his arm out towards the Taser-wielding officer out of fear that his friend might be tazed, which prompted the officer to push his hand away in anger and accused him of “resisting.”
One man can be heard saying, “Don’t taze me sir, don’t taze me sir!”
The cop threatens to call for an unit after another member of the group can be heard saying, “We know our rights. We know the Constitution, sir. We know the Constitution. Do I sound illiterate?”
“You know what, I’m calling for a unit right now,” the officer replies. “We’ll see how well you know the Constitution.”
“What’s the– What’s the unit gonna do, take me to jail for knowing the Constitution?” the man responds. “For standing for my freedom?”
As the video ends, another member of the group explains to the cop that he is a dialysis patient and could have been killed had he been tazed.
Please give the video below a watch and see if you think the cop’s action was justified and what laws the group might have broken by filming in a Walmart parking lot.
Fuck that cop
That guy is a fucking hero for standing up to that cop.
"you put your hand up to stop me from what I’m doing"
Apparently blocking an incoming fist is impeding an officer.

But the cops are your friends~~ Yeah, not if you’re black/brown they’re not.
Cops lol smh

Family is the cornerstone to the black community. A child with parents that love each other and that child positively is set on a course for success even in this world. Yes, it is true that a child can survive without both parents, just as a mother can raise a child without the father, or like a father can raise a child without the mother but they shouldn’t have to.
