#PoliceReform #TyreNichols #Tyre #Video #Riots - Bodycam footage pf Tyre Nichols' murder by 5 police officers is due for release tonight. Police across USA are bracing for riots and violence. But violence will only harm and destroy communities with NO benefit. Please don't do it.
#RodneyKing #TyreNichols + Memphis, HELL NO trend. 1992's Los Angeles Rodney King riots did great harm. This was both the immediate damage and massive subsequent economic devastation as companies and customers stayed away. What do #riots do to the communities they devastate?
3/ #PoliceBrutality #TyreNichols: People have every right to be angry. I'm angry. 😠😠😠But for once, the system actually seems to be working. The five #Memphis #police officers have been fired and arrested. Quickly.

This plate contains some hot 🌶green chillies called "kochchi" in 🇱🇰 #SriLanka.
A Sri Lankam student of year 5 (around 10 y/o) gave these chillies to the canteen staff of the school asking if she can get some food in return. 1/
🌶Imagine how many children of 🇱🇰 #SriLanka are malnourished now? 🌶Imagine how desperate this child was for some food?
🌶Imagine how many children skip school because of hunger?
Dear 🇱🇰#SriLanka,
Do you still support these politicians who stole from you and are stealing? 2/

There's a series of interlinked Discord groups for Britain's cops. You must show policing ID – such as a warrant card – to gain entry.

These groups are packed full of misogyny, racism + homophobia that – quite frankly – makes the recent WhatsApp revelations look tame.🍎
Over the next week or so, I'm going to share excerpts from these groups, which – collectively – have a membership of many hundreds of police officers. And of course, we can be certain they're emergency services workers as they all foolishly flashed their ID to join the group.🍏
The @metpoliceuk has launched a #NotInMyMet campaign to combat misogyny, racism + other forms of discrimination, after Sarah Everard's death at the hands of a serving officer.

Unfortunately, many police officers show huge contempt towards this training on women's safety.🍎 Image

As a girl of 19, I was removed from my car at gunpoint, then brutally pistol whipped by a Los Angeles county Sherrif in plain clothes. The Officer never stated he was a cop. He had me walk to his car with the gun to my back. 1/2 #PoliceBrutality
Terrified, I pissed myself. I had been waiting for my bf in the pking lot of a club. It was the end of the night.I made the decision to be shot rather than get into his car. My screams were heard by other cops. Fucking ironic that they saved me from one of their own. 2/3
I was picked up off the ground with no kindness. This Off duty cop told them I had struggled for his gun and hit my head on the car. Later on forensics would prove that the 17 stitches right above my left eye was caused by blunt force trauma.

Update on "our Ken" - the ex Met Police officer who sent a threatening letter, placed rubbish in the garden, then escalated to spray painting the property and wielding a knife. His complaint? Having anti Brexit stickers on my dustbing
To avoid going to court (His son works for Kent #Police and Ken is a football coach for young people), Ken finally paid £3000 for the restoration of the property (some 75% of the sum requested). It becomes clear that #Brexit doesn't pay.
Ken's main complaint (apart from the fact that I don't accept his form of democracy and that "I lost") was his claim that my anti-Brexit stickers were lowering property values in the area. I have not been able to verify the matter, nonetheless ...

SR and @AufstandLastGen occupied Hamburg Uni demanding the Uni take a position on the criminal plans of the German gov. to expand new oil & gas. Uni Hamburg sent in police on day 4 after an art action.

Result - #PoliceBrutality on peaceful protestors 1/
Over 40 officers arrived in full gear and dragged peaceful protestors out using pain holds and a special crane to lift down the 4 occupying the building roof. One police officer began crying after having seen the pain inflicted upon Melli, 26, from Letzte Generation. 2/
Interrupting normal classes + holding talks on the role of the Uni in society as a cultural and community meeting point and centre of knowledge & research, they highlighted the historically significant position Universities have taken in civil resistance against injustice. 3/

Centinaia di persone si sono radunate fuori dall'ospedale dove è iniziata la processione, molte delle quali sventolano bandiere palestinesi e intonavano quelle che la polizia ha definito “cori di incitamento nazionalistico”. ⬇3

I appreciate & take the concerns of @NBPactueel very seriously. I have investigated & provided training & advice for police & military operations in contexts of war & violence for 20+ years & personally experienced their often very difficult & dangerous working environment. (1/7)
Throughout my career, I have also seen more than enough to be able to immediately distinguish allegations of #PoliceBrutality that require careful contextualization from cases that are plainly obvious & primarily require immediate correction. (2/7)
My two statements of 3 January 2022 may be harsh, but they are neither biased nor premature, but respond to well-documented facts that are clearly incompatible with international standards irrespective of any contextual factors & that require urgent & decisive remedy. (3/7)

Our report on #policebrutality shows that the same violent patterns are deployed in different European countries to allow police forces to continue brutalising racialised communities; #structuralracism can no longer be ignored in Europe.
The #Covid19 measures have also allowed police and law enforcement to further brutalise racialised communities. We all remember the #MichelZecler case in France:⤵️
The many systemic human rights violations perpetrated against refugees and migrants in Europe with complete disregard towards the protection of their fundamental rights also clearly demonstrates how institutions in Europe target racialized communities.
