Great Concern As Parents of Missing Schoolgirls Tragically Pass Away.

This headline is so shocking and heartbreaking it’s almost unbelievable. 11 parents of the missing Chibok #schoolgirls have died or have been killed in the three months since their #abduction.

According to a report by AP, seven of the girls’ fathers were among over 50 bodies that were brought to a #hospital in the area after an #attack on the nearby village of Kautakari this month. Four more #parents are said to have #died from heart failure, high blood pressure and other illnesses many blame on the #trauma sustained from this incident.

Speaking out on this issue, #community leader Pogo Bitrus has said, “one #father of two of the #girls #kidnapped just went into a kind of coma and kept repeating the names of his #daughters, until life left him.” #Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan, who has been heavily criticized for his slow response and the ineffective manner in which he has been handling both this situation and the greater #BokoHaram threat, met with some of the victim’s parents and their classmates on Tuesday where he promised to continue efforts to bring back the girls #alive.

Meanwhile, the town of Chibok seems to be in more and more #danger as Boko Haram continue to gain ground in the surrounding area. Over the weekend, the #terrorist group launched several raids in northeastern Nigerian towns and villages where they also #attacked an army base in the strategic town of Damboa. This particular attack saw as many as 
15,000 civilians fleeing the area as a result.

I remember this story. How mentally sick do you have to be to shoot an unarmed #teenager begging for help in the face and truly believe you’re justified in your actions? #disgraceful #disgusted

@KingKwajo:
Renisha Mcbride was a 19 year old #Black Girl from Michigan. On November 2nd, she was involved in a terrible car crash but survived. After the accident, she ran to the nearest house looking for #help because her phone had died. She knocked on the front door and was #shot in the #face with a #shotgun by the White Homeowner. After the murder, No Charges have been pressed against the #White shooter and it is being called a justified #Killing. Several Police officers and the Shooter’s lawyer have said that “He acted Properly” in #shooting her. Don’t ever be fooled into believing that Racism is over.

UPDATE:
@Jjessicaj: They started picking the jurors Monday in this case….he was charged with 2nd degree murder, #manslaughter & gun use during a #crime.

@Anafricanqueen_: The city she was viciously #murdered in is historically known as a “sundown town” Where #Blackpeople have been clear of at night due to the threat of White vigilante #violence.

CLAIRTON (KDKA) — Laid up in a #hospital bed, 17-year-old Merceedez Wright says she’s still in #pain after what took place outside of a Clairton ice cream shop Tuesday night. “I was #terrified. I thought I was going to be #beaten #up for hours,” Wright said. “It felt like hours because no one could really like do nothing for me.” It was 10 p.m. when Wright and her friends were approached by the Clairton #Police telling them to go home because they were in #violation of the city’s #curfew.

Wright says she and her friends started walking away, but returned to pick up a purse and cell phone that had been left behind. #Officers reportedly put her friend in a cruiser, and Wright says she tried to walk away, but was stopped by an officer.

Bryon Clifford, who witnessed the #incident, said, “She kept walking. He got out, started chasing her, and once I seen her running around the corner about five seconds later, I hear her #screaming at the top of her #lungs.” Wright says she admits that she ran from #police saying she was #scared by the way the #officer got out of the car.

“They both just #tackled me to the ground and smushed my face into the ground, and their feet and legs, and they start pulling my hair, pushing me and stuff,” Wright added.

Wright says while on the ground she fought back trying to #protect herself.

She was taken to #Children’s #Hospital for treatment. “It was basically a diagnosis that she had some type of air pocket between her lungs,” Audelia Amoah, Wright’s mom said. “I guess from when the police pounded on her.” Wright’s mom says she respects the #law, but questions why things had to go this far. “I understand the police have their job to do. They just were too #excessive,” Amoah said. “I don’t think that curfew is great of a violation that someone needs #assaulted.” KDKA reached out to the Clairton Police Department to gain their version of the events that unfolded. We were told the chief wasn’t in and didn’t hear back from any other officer after leaving contact information and details about the story.

The #media here in the #UnitedStates of #America would have us believe that #Israel is “defending” themselves (Even these Christian network stations smh). #Palestine is literally being blown off the map into oblivion. They have something Israel wants. #Israelis sit at the border and watch the #bombs drop, #blowup, and #kill #innocent people. Where’s our #humanity? 

Go to #YouTube and look up “#The #Gaza Bombardment - What You’re Not Being Told”. There’s always two sides to every story and the #truth is somewhere amidst the #lies and cover ups.  #liestheytell

Wars are ALWAYS about #resources, #territory, and #power.

This story continues to stay with me since I saw the video 2 days ago and read the story in the New York Times online last night. I hate the subtle wordplay they (from media to police chief) use to minimize the the facts of this horrendous story. Nothing that I read stated he had no cigarettes on him or that he was known for breaking up fights as he did that day, but they wrote about his past arrests and health problems though to deflect from what they did. Stick to the terrible issue at hand! You #murder our people in the streets! #Chokeholds are #illegal! If he did have a heart attack it was as a result of the stress from the constant harassment and let’s not forget the fact that you suffocated him to death!!

From what I read, his Legal Aid lawyer called him “a gentle giant”. To die over some damn cigarettes SMFH! This death was just so unnecessary and disgusting.  It happens way too much. I mean damn, what year is it?!! Ain’t shit change that damn much if a #blackman can still be killed on the damn sidewalk for doing absolutely nothing wrong! Still praying for his wife and 6 children. He just had a 3 month old! My heart aches for them.

I know most won’t agree, but we also need to take responsibility. We’re just so desensitized by these stories that all we do is get upset, call Al Sharpton, hold rallies, and cry out for justice. Then we are passified in some way or just forget, someone else gets killed, and the vicious cycle continues. Malcom X planned to take his charges of America’s hate crimes (racism is a hate crime!) to the United Nations and reached out to African leaders for help. There have been so many leaders here and in Africa who warned us (Marcus Garvey and Patrice Lumumba just flashed across my mind) and sacrificed their lives for us all to unite, but we still don’t head the call.

Ok, I’m done. Had to vent.

Story below👇

@revolutionary_mindset #repost:

The #NewYork Daily News is reporting that a man has died while being arrested by the #NYPD after officers put him in a #chokehold and slammed his head against the pavement. #EricGarner, a 43-year-old #asthmatic, attempted to tell police that he could not breathe several times before he collapsed according to a video of the event.  Police are alleging that Garner had a heart #attack.  Garner’s wife states, “When I kissed my husband this morning, I never thought it would be for the last time.” Garner’s friend Ramsey Orta, who shot #video of the #arrest, can be heard pleading with police to leave Garner alone and that the only thing he had done was break up a #fight.  Several other witnesses corroborate the fact that Garner was not breaking any laws.  He had been previously arrested for selling untaxed cigarettes, and police claim that is what he was being #arrested for. However, Garner did not have any cigarettes on him or in his car at the time of his #arrest.  Garner clearly had been experiencing #harassment from the cops over the sale of untaxed #cigarettes as he can be heard saying, “I didn’t do $*&%…Every time you see me you want to mess with me.  I’m tired of it.” Orta reports that cops, “jumped on him and they were choking him.  He was foaming at the mouth.  And that’s it, he was done.  The #cops were saying, ‘no, he’s OK, he’s OK.’ He wasn’t OK.” 

This is not the first time NYPD has been accused of using excessive force or questionable uses of #power.  They have been seen smashing a 14-year-old boys head through a store window and causing an 84-year-old woman to be hospitalized from head #injuries she suffered during a stop for jaywalking.  The NYPD also has a #history of unnecessarily targeting #blackmen.  Data reported by Think Progress shows that in 2011, the NYPD actually made more stops on blackmen than there are black men in the city.
