When my talented and beautiful youngest sister offered to paint me something, for some reason the image of Miles Davis at Birdland popped into my head. A cool New York jazz club back in the day… a scene that made me wish I had a time machine. She loved the idea and... ImageImageImageImage
with the extra time due to Covid-19 lockdown started working on it. That was at the end of April.
I read more about the Birdland sessions and quickly realized this was where Miles was assaulted and unlawfully arrested in New York City. He took a break after a set (an Armed Forces
Day broadcast) and walked a white girl upstairs to get a taxi, he then stayed outside to smoke a cigarette. A white police officer approached and told him to "move on" and when Miles said, "For what?" and explained he was working downstairs pointing to HIS name on the sign,

The brutality of police is NOT the result of a few 'bad apples' - it is the result of a series of POLICY + FUNDING decisions. (thread)
Here, the NYPD budget is around $6 billion-with-a-B.…
In the U.S., in 2017, state + local governments spent $115 BILLION-with-a-B on police (4 % of state and local direct general expenditures) and $79 BILLION-with-a-B on corrections (3%).…

I spent the last 2 years working in the @NYCMayorsOffice. Last night I was arrested by NYPD for violating @NYCMayor's curfew while participating in a peaceful protest, and then questioned by the FBI. Story about what happened and what I saw in the thread below.
I was part of a group of hundreds marching through Downtown Brooklyn and Boerum Hill. We were chanting and cheering, with vocal support from apartment windows, brownstones, fire escapes, stoops and sidewalks.
We had a police tail, but they were keeping a distance, similar to what I've seen each night since the curfew was imposed. (

People stuck in traffic are witnessing NYPD beat up folks on their way home.
This was sent to me by a friend of the women in the car, @tommiesunshine. Stuck in traffic for nearly an hour on 50th street and third Ave.
Ridiculously, @CNN and @donlemon are interviewing the #Nypd chief and they are saying that protestors started the beatings at the brooklyn bridge. So what is this??? People running through the streets away from cops.

I had **A LOT** of contact with #NYPD back in 2018 when I reported a writer at @VICE for harassment and stalking.

(That's another story. But feel free to DM me w/ q's.)

The patrol officers I dealt with were a nightmare.

Like had no idea how to do their job. Didn't understand they had to take a statement from me, argued with me, etc.

At one point I had ~10 NYPD officers standing over me arguing with me and berating me and saying my story kept changing. And this was five minutes in.

The NYPD senior detectives that actually took my statement later were... fine. But when I told them about the patrol colleagues they said: "Yeah. They're not real police officers."

If you're following the wave of uprisings against racist police violence, you've probably heard that Derek Chauvin, the cop who murdered George Floyd, had a long history of criminal conduct, but was still carrying a gun, wearing a badge, and billing the taxpayer.


Chauvin was no aberration. Minneapolis, like many cities, has a police crime problem - that is, a problem addressing the crimes committed by its own police force, thanks to a combination of impunity, white supremacy, opacity, and militarization.…

Even where police reforms are enacted, the forces ignore them...and get away with it. That happened in Minneapolis. As @MarshallProj documents, a half-decade after the DoJ investigated problems with Minneapolis's police, virtually nothing has changed.…

November 2011: back home in #NYC with both my arms in casts, waiting for a friend when a man of colour pointed to my casts & asked what happened. I explained #Egyptian riot police had broken my arms.

He turned around, pulled up his shirt and showed me his back. Fuck the police
Every person of colour in #NYC who would ask me what happened to my arms, would respond with a story of how they or a relative had also been brutalized by police. e.g. nurse at clinic before my surgery told me police brutalized her brother & cousin. Fuck the police.
And this, this: a replica of what police did during #Jan25 and in so many other countries where they brutalize. And when I said Fuck the police 👇🏽 so many from around the word said it too

[Thread]1/ As a result of #georgefloyd's killing, there has been an uptick on Twitter in the vilification of the Somali Minnesotan community. This short analysis is based on around 23000 Twitter interactions (Tweets, RTs etc) from around 16000 unique accounts #BLACK_LIVES_MATTER
2/ I searched for the terms "Minnesota" and "Somali" to see what discussion was taking place around these terms. First, who is being retweeted the most. That's @chizmaga , then @mukhtaryare @johncardillo @AbshirDSM . But what are they saying, see next tweet #BLACK_LIVES_MATTER
3/ @Chizmaga uses whataboutism and false equivalence to try and portray the Somali community as hypocritical. See his tweet below. Former #NYPD man @johncardillo does something similar, suggesting somehow Somalis are deviant and have double standards as they are 'rioting' now

Check out the pinned tweet of @berniebromanny.

It should tell you all you need to know.
Love you, #NYPD. Thank you for all you do for us every day. @NYPDnews
I don’t have any conflicts about this. I stand with the NYPD.

Racism is evil. Murder is evil.
Protest is good, protest is lawful.

Looting is bad.
Rioting is bad.
Looters and rioters are simply trying to smear legitimate protestors. And I’m not falling for that for a second.
We should support all protestors. We shouldn’t hesitate to condemn looters and rioters. The two are not the same.
Don’t lump righteous protestors in with these criminals and thugs. Rioters want to disrupt legitimate protests, and smear real community activism. Don’t let them.

Surviving America's police.

Jersey City police beating up Black people for not social distancing.

The irony is that they're not social distancing either.

We gotta get the police out of the social distancing business, this is like "stop & frisk" on steroids.
Look at the difference in how the NYPD are enforcing social distancing between Black and white communities.

At around 4am, someone kept buzzing & buzzing the intercom. Everyone was at home so we ignored it.Then we heard heavy steps in the building. I found out just now that it was the police trying to get onto the roof. Apparently, their “gun detection” system was triggered in our area
I am just now hearing about “ShopStopper.” This combined with cameras I keep noticing on so many streets is pure what the fuck police fuckery. #NYC

NYPD will expand gun detection program called ShotSpotter to cover more parts of the city. h/t @rerutled…
That article is about NYPD using ShotStopper in #Harlem, where I live.

So basically, there are microphones on rooftops, on light poles, etc, that pick up and record sound and send it to a server. WTF

#Qanon #Thread December 18th, 2019 Post: Q is saying that people in the news you see retiring will be related to crimes found by #Durham. Now that #Impeachment is over, now comes the fun. Insert #InsertRudy!
Look at the date of this #Qanon vote! It’s all right there from April 2018. How do you introduce evidence into an investigation, who has everything, INSERT #RUDY, admissible in court of law #Impeachment PLANNED #TheGreatAwakening
Why did #Rudy join @POTUS team? Who has the ultimate authority. Who knows where the bodies are buried. Working with #NavySeal #ErikPrince who knows what’s on the #NYPD laptop found by #Hillary’s aide’s husband #AnthonyWeiner. #Blackwater is a mercenary group that knows a lot.

My #BlacksForYang Series 21-28 October.

Sign up for Notifications each time I post...It will be like one of those Twitter Op Eds I did, helps put everything in one place.

Should @AndrewYang worry about reaching & SECURING the Black Vote? #YangGang

@AndrewYang Thread 1: Pandering Vs Meaningful Policy

In 2020..Politicians must spend more effort talking to us not at us..".that candidates’ efforts to engage black communities often focus more on symbolic gestures than MEANINGFUL interactions." #BlacksForYang…
@AndrewYang What I really want the #YangGangFamily to understand ...ANYONE specifically talking to us about our own issues different to yours is NOT PANDERING...It's pandering when it's all about style (sounding cool, playing hiphop, photo ops etc..) and ZERO fake interest.

Did Benjamin Netanyahu & Philip Zelikow write “the 9/11 script”? Netanyahu has said repeatedly that he PREDICTED 9/11 back in 1995 - apart from the seemingly unanticipated “flying bombs” & actually naming Osama bin Laden, who was barely on anyone’s radar back in 1995.
Netanyahu in his book Fighting Terrorism (1995) "predicted" that - if we don't stop "this rising tide of Islamic terrorism" - one day "a nuclear-armed Iran" might use “its pre-armed militants in the West” to detonate “a nuclear bomb in the basement of the World Trade Center”
In 1998 Philip Zelikow w/Ashton Carter & John Deutch published article "Catastrophic Terrorism" in Foreign Affairs (CFR) also raising the specter of nukes under the WTC & implicitly pointing to Osama bin Laden, just indicted for the East Africa bombings
