So I had my first #Police vs #Dev Encounter today.

Stepped out of School to run an errand and on my way back I was stopped.

We had the regular back and forth on whether I was doing "work" as they called it.

Questioned me about my phones and laptop also

1/11
Showed them my school ID which had Computer Sciences boldly written on it and I told them I needed a laptop for my school activities.

They searched me, searched inside my trousers, hoodie, shirt and bag.

They then began questioning me about homosexuality and cultism 😭😂

2/11
Next thing, they wanted to search my phones and PC. I opened them all for them to search.

Well I use Linux so they couldn't operate my PC, they also couldn't operate my Pixel because the pixel doesn't have the regular back and minimize buttons like the regular Android.

@joebos617 @MeritLaw You can't be a good apple if you're hanging from a rotten tree.
@joebos617 @MeritLaw FYI the National Association of Police Organizations

napo.org

info@napo.org
@NAPOpolice

has endorsed the WH criminal #MafiaDon for 2020

thecrimereport.org/2019/09/10/pol…

[BTW the crime rate has been going down for decades, Mr. Sam Cabral. Still bumped up a bit w/trump]
@joebos617 @MeritLaw @NAPOpolice 🔼 story was published just a month ago.

They're gonna have to revoke that endorsement unless they want to be known as the police association that endorsed a criminal for president.

Anyone want to take odds how long they'll keep that endorsement under current circumstances?

You are welcome to translate the letter without my permission.

I think it will be more comprehensible for most #HongKongers to read in Chinese.

And I am happy to elaborate my ideas here if it is necessary.

Q: How much do #HKPolice’s pro-#China cowards fear FREEDOM & DEMOCRACY?

A: So much that they’ll use 8 heavily-armored thugs to beat one of #HongKong’s peaceful protestors into submission.

#StandWithHongKong #StandUp4HumanRights #FreeHK #SOSHK #HKPF
#HKPolice have literally BASHED THIS MAN’S SKULL 💀. He has profuse bleeding from his head. Pray for him & #PrayforHongKong. 🙏

#HongKong’s #PoliceTerrorism must STOP. #Congress must pass the #HKHumanRightsandDemocracyAct & @POTUS must SANCTION #HKPF.

… there are literally no words to describe #HKPolice’s excessive force other than “#PoliceBrutality & #PoliceTerrorism.”

WATCH how #HongKong’s #HKPF are indiscriminately beating young, peaceful protestors & bystanders. Many are probably just commuters!

【Thread】1/ MY VIEWS ON MTRC (Hong Kong only metro company)

Protests against MTRC is MTRC self-inflicted. After People's Daily criticism on MTRC, they changed tactics, from treating protesters as passengers (and they really are) to treating them as criminals.
2/ Protesters initially would block CCTV cameras, surround station staff, use the fire hose to deter police advance esp after 7.21 Yuen Long Attack. After MTR's change of tactic, they spray graffiti, take down the CCTV entirely, and vandalize the ticketing machines.
3/ The anger was not directed at MTRC but it stood out to be targeted and hated. It said closing down stations is for the safety and operation, I wonder whether it had re-think after these few weeks if it is really a better approach for the operation of the company?

I left my house for two minutes.
And two minutes was all it took.

#Arrest #Immigration #PoliceBrutality

If you're thinking about traveling or living in #Morocco, but have the audacity to do it while black, read this first:
On March 21st, 2019, at about 7:45pm, I left my apartment in Rabat, Morocco to buy some wine before the store closed. I passed by my roommate on the way there, and told her I'd be back. I did not come back.
When I reached a roundabout right up the street, a strange man repeated, "Bonjour" to me. Many people constantly sell things here, so I ignored him. But he got closer and eventually grabbed my shoulder and then grabbed my chest.

Thread! CW: police violence

Friends, you know I don’t share violent content often but I’m sharing video of a #MadisonWI black disabled high school student who was assaulted by police. Read the thread for the longer narrative courtesy of @AboutFreedomInc
Earlier this week, a Black high school student with a mental disability, who attends West High School, was failed by @MMSDschools and assaulted by @madisonpolice officers.
West High School staff called the cops on the Black disabled student (I haven’t heard why). The student left and went home. The cops came to the student’s home and violently arrested them. The student was cooperative, but that did not stop the violence.

The definition of mindless idiocy is voting for the EU which wants to destroy Europe & impoverish the 99%.

Brexit won by a country mile (32%).
Remain Parties Tories and Labour (9% & 14%) got savaged.
#EUElectionResults
LibDems will sit with @Guyverhofstadt's anti-democracy Fascists (ALDE), who want to destroy Europe & impoverish the 99%, in the EU Parliament.
ALDE is an extreme Fascist, Soros controlled group for the 1%.

#EUElectionResults
Tories and Labour were crushed
The definition of mindless idiocy is voting for the anti democracy, totally corrupt, EUSSR which wants to destroy Europe & impoverish the 99%.

The EU Parliament is a talking shop PR stunt with no power - just like the Soviet Duma.

Now, rather than let my daughter have access to one of *her* staff people, to try and calm her, @spokanecounty has contacted *some other agency* we've never heard of, to transport her to some facility they won't name because they can't verify our ID over the phone.
They haven't even *tried* to have her current staff, who has worked with her for years, who *know* how to bring her back to stable, be a part of the decision making for what's going to happen to her.
So she sits behind bars, scared, freaked out, with *nothing* that feels safe and familiar to help her, while these people refuse to do anything to actually *help*. We've been playing "pass the phone" all morning to try and find someone with decision making power.

There is a myth going about. It is spoken on our news. It is taught in our schools. Liberal free thinking allies and racists alike tout it. It is an image that is much more a mirage of a colorblind hero in the body of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Gather round. #MLK2019 #MLK #MLK90
Let's jump right in with a quote from the "I Have A Dream" speech.

Dear White People,
Dr. King's mind was on a lot more than Black kids and White kids holding hands. Read this part: #MartinLutherKingJr on #PoliceBrutality. How #BlackLivesMatter of him...
Schools don't teach that #MartinLutherKing began the Poor People's Campaign, believed in Americans having a universal guaranteed income, and stood vehemently against the "evils" of capitalism and the Vietnam War. His dream went so exceedingly beyond "content of character".

How gender identity politics is endangering #WomensRights masquerading under the guise of “progressivism”- or in other words, as I said to this @notokyriarchy fatherfucker, an #MRA’s dream come true
- (thread)
I shouldn’t have to explain the realities of sex-based oppression in 2018! #Female is a biological sex. #Gender is the roles and norms that are imposed on those with female bodies to subjugate them to males for free sexual, domestic, and reproductive labor.
No matter how many genders a given culture had or recognized, somehow, the half of the group with a cock and balls (males) knew which other half of the group to forcibly impregnate (“#NonMen”, according to some). 🤔🤔🤔
