Hi. Is Pete Dardas (pictured below) still working as a cop in .@BerksCounty? I'm going to be dropping some information in a minute, and you may want to tell him to box his stuff up.
"Constable" Pete Dardas seems to have some pretty abhorrent views. I'd like to ask for your help in taking a look at some of his Facebook comments and posts below, and tell me how they sit with you.

Let's start here.
You know, it seems like your cop... Pete Dardas, has a large problem with racial sensitivity.

In fact, I'm just going to say he's a racist, sexist, hateful man and is a danger to our communities. He's also a liability to everyone he works with & non-white/GOP community members.

More #COVID19 statistical funny business. Notice the spikes in deaths on 6/26 and 7/1. The footnote clearly states that the data from @ECDC_EU was updated those days to include “probable/earlier deaths”. I.E., there was no spike. Manipulated data:…
This is the same “methodology” that the @CDCgov has been using (which is to say, no methodology whatsoever). Are you telling me that there are people who died and never even even got a posthumous #COVID19 test? #GeorgeFloyd —>…

How my congressional race in #TX10 relates to the most notorious incident of racist Texas law enforcement in the last 20 years, a THREAD:

(📷= @courthouselover on Flickr)
Early in the morning of July 23rd, 1999 in #Tulia, a town of roughly 5,000 in the Texas panhandle south of Amarillo, law enforcement officers arrested 46 people, of which 39 were Black, on charges of dealing cocaine.
Over 10% of #Tulia’s Black population was handcuffed & paraded out of their homes in front of tipped-off TV camera crews. Many defendants weren’t even allowed to get dressed. A local newspaper headline read “Tulia’s Streets Cleared of Garbage.”

Good morning. I’ve been President of the @ULPDX for 5 years and 3 months. Who wants to help me name all of the PPB chiefs and acting chiefs who have made these same comments to me during that time?
I’ll start. First, there was Chief Larry O’dea. I thought he was someone I could work with. 😬
Then he retired in June 2016 while under criminal investigation for shooting a friend during a camping trip.…
Who was the next PPB Chief?

Queridos tuiteros, acompáñenme a compartir esta historia: El chico en la foto es Jorge Enrique Rodríguez, escritor y periodista independiente en Cuba. Fue detenido en La Habana el 28 de junio y se espera que le hagan juicio sumario el 8 de julio por "desacato a la autoridad"...
...El policía que atendió a su hermana, le dijo que Jorge se metió "en un conflicto de la población con la policía". El conflicto, al parecer, fue cubrir una protesta por la muerte a manos de la policía de #HanselHernández, un joven conocido como el #GeorgeFloyd cubano...
...Jorge Enrique es corresponsal del diario @abc_es en Cuba y reportero de @diariodecuba. Estaba allí haciendo su trabajo. Pero lo detuvieron, solo hoy pudo ver a su hermana, y le dijeron que él se metió "en un problema que no le correspondía". Es decir, documentar la realidad...

1. The duplicity of #BlackLivesMatter is on full display with new insight into where money raised is going. Although believed by the well-meaning Left to be an anti-racism movement, we now know BLM has instead been organized simply as another revenue stream of the Democrat Party.
2. Money raised for #BLM goes through the radical-Left funding platform, ActBlue, which pretends to be a GoFundMe-like service for grassroots activists. But unlike GoFundMe, there’s not the same separation between causes, so money raised across initiatives lands in the same pool.
3. These funds are then “claimed” by activist groups if they want it, but – and here’s the kicker – if the money is never claimed, ActBlue is allowed to disperse it wherever they choose, with ZERO obligation to donors to ensure funds go toward the causes they intended it for.

1/ New paper! @mathewkiang and I take a look at the statements issued by top 50 medical school deans following George Floyd's killing and the subsequent unrest.
2/ We were inspired to undertake this analysis after one of us read a statement issued by an academic medical center that was framed as though #GeorgeFloyd somehow spontaneously died of unknown causes. He did not. The cause was known. The cause of causes is also known.
3/ Floyd was killed by a @MinneapolisPD officer who knelt on his neck for 7 minutes and 46 seconds while he was handcuffed, lying prone, pleading for his life, and calling out for his mother. The #GeorgeFloydProtests are still going on. DON'T STOP ✊

Remember the version of the #Cleveland #Police Department that showed up at the #Republican National Convention in the summer of 2016? That was then, this is now. Appalling images from the #GeorgeFloyd protest show officers are far from reformed.…
#Reporter @LeilaAtassi writes: "They were the picture of #constitutional #policing, representing #Cleveland when all the world was watching. Working alongside law enforcement officers from across the country, Cleveland #police managed even the most volatile demonstrations..."
"... on downtown streets with #professionalism, #civility & respect for the rights of citizens. Observers worried that the embattled #police department – then operating under its first year of a federal consent decree governing use of force – would overly restrict protests..."

3/ The story begins with Fred Trump, one-time supporter of the KKK and a developer who made it big by constructing housing in New York's outer boroughs for whites only.

Wonder what all the Israel haters have to say about this:

#Palestinian police detain their captive in the same way as the 🇺🇸 cop who murdered #GeorgeFloyd.

Will Jordan (they train them) be blamed?
Will America (they also train & fund them) be blamed?

No, only ever 🇮🇱🤬 Image
The photo in the Tweet above was shared by the Palestinian Voice for Peace FB group, see here:…

The Arabic in the image, translated through Google reads: "Freedom deplores the killing of the young Al-Amouri by the Palestinian police in Al-Eizariya"

#DEREKCHAUVIN #GeorgeFloyd notes via @jbarrchicago @WSJ)

Will this trial be bigger than O.J.?

Defense lawyers argued for opening up TELEVISED hearings, saying public officials including Gov. #TimWalz & @MayorFrey have made public statements that could sway a jury.
@HennepinCounty Judge #PeterCahill set a a hearing this 9/11 (how romantic), & a trial in March 2021 for the 4 former police officers charged in the "killing of George Floyd."

On 9/11 he will hear pleadings for certain matters e.g potential change of venue for the trial of "videotaped killing that has sparked protests and calls for racial justice across the country." #blacklivesmatter #BLMriots #GeorgeFloydProtests

{THREAD} France used to be the land of the free for African-Americans. But the reality has always been very different for Blacks of African and Caribbean descent. Let's understand and deconstruct racism in France in 7 films - with a special focus on #women...
1. 1. The invention of the Other : BLACK VENUS (Abdellatif Kechiche, 2009)
The film shows how Saartjie Baartman, the "Hottentot Venus", is forced to play the savage to meet audience expectations, an audience that cannot imagine Black women in any other light...
1.2 This construction of the Other is a key element of racism. Today still, some media and politicians do not hesitate to create a truncated image of Black people to shape public opinion – for example, the threatening “youth from the hood” figure.

🤔What The Hell?

#Digg | #DarnellaFrazier GoFundMe

The woman who caught some of the #GeorgeFloyd footage has raised more than $500,000?

Or has she?


#darnellafrazier | “How do we know this campaign is legit?”

"For the love of Black Jesus, please see previous update. The campaign has been verified by #GoFundMe via #Twitter.

OKidoki then!

GoFundMe has ties to #BigPharma. They've confiscated $ & banned many, including moi.
But wait! Apparently, #darnellafrazier has no connection to this account & says many are using her name to make 💰

So who is this "fundraising team"?

Monica is "just" a mom from Chicago. On March 21, '19, she posted a pic of black cake pic w/ words "The Revolution."

Crises de responsabilité pour les abus de pouvoir systémiques aux États-Unis
En cette Journée internationale de soutien aux victimes de la torture,
les États-Unis sont à la croisée des chemins.
Nous saurons bientôt si le pays est capable de briser le cycle de l'impunité pour le racisme systémique dans le recours à la force meurtrière par la police.
Alors que la société réinvente le rôle de la police,
les décideurs politiques doivent garder à l'esprit que même les changements les plus radicaux échoueront si la torture et le meurtre de Noirs ne sont pas rapidement suivis d'enquêtes crédibles, de sanctions appropriées et de réparations pour les victimes et leurs familles
