Doing my part to shine light on injustice...

While checking out blogs and news sites, I found this news story about a 15 year old girl being beaten by a Seattle police officer. The girl was in a holding cell and when she kicked her shoe off at the officer, he goes off and attacks her. In the video posted below, it's reported that the girl called the officer names. This GROWN MAN could not handle the name calling and ATTACKS her. I don't care what she allegedly said, there is ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSE!!!! She could have called his mama a stank ho and it would not being reason enough for him to ATTACK her! We have to stay informed about these crimes...if we can get up in arms about the NY Post and that racist cartoon they published last week, then we should definitely do the same for crimes like this! Check out the You Tube clip below...also read this article for more information on the story (click here).

  1. You are so right! How on Earth did I not hear about this. There is so much injustice that will only stop when people step up and let their voices be heard!
