So We (Gonna) Getting Killed for Jaywalking Now?

it’s getting wild out here.
soon,
we ain’t gonna be able to leave the crib.
so a black wolf was thrown to the ground by the police for jaywalking in sacremento, california.
how many of us jaywalk daily??
well a f-bi sent me the story and i had to share with the foxhole…

A criminal investigation has been launched into the “disturbing” actions of a Sacramento police officer who was captured on video punching a man accused of jaywalking, authorities said.

The officer, whose name hasn’t been released, was placed on leave as authorities opened an administrative investigation into his actions.

On Tuesday, the Police Department released dash-cam video footage from the officer’s patrol cruiser showing the confrontation. (A witness’ cellphone video of the incident sparked public outrage when it was circulated on social media recently.)

“The actions of the involved Sacramento police officer are disturbing and do not appear to be reasonable based upon the circumstances,” the Police Department said in a statement. “The Sacramento Police Department holds itself to the highest professional standard and the actions that were observed are not indicative of the dedicated women and men who work for the Department.”

Police said the officer tried to stop the man just after 5 p.m. Monday as he crossed a street illegally near the intersection of Cypress Street and Grand Avenue in North Sacramento. The man, who later identified himself to reporters as Nandi Cain Jr., put his hands up and walked away.

i bet in moments like that,
you literally think you’re about to die.
that must be terrifying.
when he was crying in the back of the police car,
that broke my heart.
nandi spoke to nbc nightly news about the incident:

he doesn’t need to say another word.
he needs to get his lawyer(s) so he can sue THE FUCK out of them.
this may have been the best thing to have happen to him.

  1. I will not even watch the video. I am completely over these senseless beatings and killings by police officers.

    1. Word. I can’t watch either. U.S. police are just out of control and the current American political climate is only exacerbating the issue of racism. It’s frightening. Racism is real folks! Don’t let anyone try to fool you (because they will try).
      I still can’t believe you have an orange peel in the White House. It’s an absolute joke, but that joke is going to come at the cost of many black lives, in HIS name, that’s what’s scary.

  2. “Jaywalking” doesn’t exist where I’m from.. I never knew crossing the street to get to the other side could be seen as an offence. Wasn’t 2Pac also beaten up for jaywalking? Only in America.

"off topic", trolling, and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
