This is a police officer in Weirton, West Virginia who thought it was okay to display a lynching in his front yard on Halloween.

Even after it made a few neighbors uncomfortable, he refused to remove it. He works as a school resource officer. #EndRacism #SurvivingAmericasPolice
Some people still don't grasp the depth of racist white American savagery. The lynching of blacks for pleasure, gets swept under the rug like it wasn't some of the most violent shit in American history. This display is disgusting, and shouldn't be promoted by police officers.
Let's be real, all shit aside. Only racist white men pose this proud at a lynching.

Sometimes thousands would turn up to watch the murders. The black victim was routinely tortured, kept alive until the body could stand no more. Then they celebrated in postcards.

T.I. is an intelligent brother. Shout out to @Tip.
For those watching @TheView, let me dissect what T.I. did. He reinforced that we still have no solid plan or agenda currently in place to accommodate the kneeling, and provide clarity on how exactly we end police killing & brutalizing people of color. #SurvivingAmericasPolice
Which reminds me of a question @witinradio asked me during an interview three years ago. #SurvivingAmericasPolice

Shooting an unarmed teen in the back of the head was justified.

16-year-old Isiah Murietta-Golding ran from the @FresnoPolice. Police officer, Ray Villalvazo, took aim, and shot Isaiah through a fence. Fresno hid this for 2 years. #SurvivingAmericasPolice
.@KamalaHarris @CoryBooker @ewarren @JulianCastro @SenSanders @BetoORourke If elected president, will you enforce de-escalation training for all police, routine mental evaluations, drug testing & strict penalties for officers killing unarmed people. #SurvivingAmericasPolice
Isiah Murrietta-Golding, 16, takes eight steps before the officer fires a bullet that shatters the teenager’s head, just above his brain stem.

He died three days later in a hospital.

The officer said he feared for his life because the unarmed teen had reached for his waistband.

The family of Atatiana Jefferson sent @shaunking some additional pictures of her.

She was a star in her family. College grad, caregiver, and a kind generous soul. She didn't deserve this.

When will enough, finally be enough. #SurvivingAmericasPolice
The Fort Worth PD is following a familiar script -- kill an unarmed black person, and then try to justify it with irrelevant facts.

That's what we're witnessing with the #AtatianaJefferson murder. Just admit, police are programmed to kill black people. #SurvivingAmericasPolice
"There was nothing nefarious or illegal about owning a firearm and they presented, in nowhere that firearm was contributory towards the use of deadly force here."
- Atatiana Jefferson’s family attorney, Lee Merritt. #SurvivingAmericasPolice #AtatianaJefferson @MeritLaw

Killing unarmed black women screaming "I'm pregnant," isn't enough. Now they just show up at your window.

A white Texas police officer shot & killed Atatiana Jefferson in her home while she was playing video games with her nephew. #SurvivingAmericasPolice
The cop was responding to a call for an “open structure” in Forth Worth at about 2:30 a.m. when he saw someone inside the home, standing near a window.

The officer, who was looking stupid in the backyard, then pulled out his gun, despite the fact that there was no threat.
“Put your hands up. Show me your hands!” the officer can be heard yelling in bodycam footage before firing through the window.

The resident, later identified as #AtatianaJefferson, 28 — was killed in the 3-second gunfire and pronounced dead at the scene. #SurvivingAmericasPolice

#JoshuaBrown was shot in his mouth & chest. He was exiting his car at his apt when he was ambushed & shot at close range. His mother asked @MeritLaw to help find out who murdered her son. She suspects foul play. He had no known enemies. We need answers.
Joshua Brown testified against Amber Guyger, the Dallas cop who gunned down Botham Jean in his own apartment. #JoshuaBrown
Too many black people think just because BLM exists, that's a pass for them to sit on their ass and do nothing. First, stop killing each other.

Next, understand we must continue to take to the streets, become public officials, educate, empower, and be a voice for the voiceless.

White privilege is when you can randomly walk into a black man's home, murder him in his home, then walk out of Court with a ten year sentence and a hug from the victim's brother.

Rest In Peace Botham Jean. #SurvivingAmericasPolice
I'm certain if I walked into a white womans home and killed her, I'd get much more than ten years (with no hug). Botham Jean didn't receive justice.
Former Minneapolis officer Mohamed Noor (black man) was sentenced to 12½ years for the fatal shooting of Justine Damond (a white woman) while responding to her 911 call.

Both cases prove police have a pass to kill and receive light punishment, but even black cops get more time.

New goal. With the help of her amazing followers, Little Miss Flint raised $123,620 in less than 2 months to provide quality filters to families all over America.

I believe we can do it too -- and provide more clean water. Please donate or retweet.

Thank you to the public for the gofundme Hero Award nomination. When I started the #SaveFlintChallenge it was with one mission in mind, to help save Flint. Together we are making a difference. #FlintWaterCrisis #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis
The Trump border wall gofundme is still receiving more support than our #SaveFlintChallenge water relief campaign. If anyone can help give our campaign a boost, please consider. Thanks. #NoWaterNoWall

I'm highly disappointed in my country. Each day I'm online having to beg people to donate & care about helping Flint. Meanwhile a killer cop sits at home with his feet up, while the world shares his gofundme campaign easily, and he reaches $171k in 57 days. This is disgusting.
The officer who killed an unarmed man raised $171,205 in 57 days.
The Trump border wall has reached $25,141,300 in 9 months. They recently raised over $30k in 48 hours.

The gofundme for the cop who murdered Eric Garner reached $170,010 in 40 days. Let this sink in. Then explain to me how a murderer gets more support than a campaign to help Flint residents get clean water. I'll wait. Donate if you can. #SaveFlintChallenge gofundme.com/rvaflint-water…
It's heartbreaking to finally realize if I was a Trump supporter or killer cop, we'd be receiving more support & donations for our campaign to help Flint. #NoWaterNoWall #SaveFlintChallenge

It took our #SaveFlintChallenge water relief campaign for Flint, 1 year & 2 months to reach $170k. Eric Garner's killer did it in 40 days.

America is officially the most embarrassing country of all time. #FlintWaterCrisis

Thank you to everyone supporting and contributing to our #SaveFlintChallenge campaign. But to the rest who've been ignoring us, fuck you very much. Regardless of how you feel about me, black people, or gofundme -- There is no excuse for allowing a murderer to rise this strong.

It took our #SaveFlintChallenge water relief campaign for Flint, 1 year & 2 months to reach $170k. Eric Garner's killer is about to do it in 40 days. I'd like to also point out, his campaign has been shared 23.8k times. Ours, only 4.1k shares.

This is America. #FlintWaterCrisis
It's all surreal to witness for me, beyond the fundraising because I created the #SurvivingAmericasPolice hashtag to expose cops killing unarmed black people. Watching the world fund Eric Garner's killer, during this Flint campaign was unexpected.

The gofundme for the officer who murdered Eric Garner is at $161k in 27 days.

Our goal is $170k. We've been campaigning over a year to get clean water to Flint.

If anyone reading this can help, please consider donating and sharing. #SaveFlintChallenge gofundme.com/rvaflint-water…
In America, we don’t turn our backs on our neighbors when they need help. After watching everyone on social media forget about thousands of Americans struggling due to the water crisis, we decided to create our own campaign to help Flint. #SaveFlintChallenge #NoWaterNoWall
Thank you Ben Stiller for supporting our #SaveFlintChallenge campaign, but we have so much more work to do. Please tweet our campaign link and encourage your followers to contribute. #FlintWaterCrisis #NoWaterNoWall @RedHourBen

"The DC police not only escorted & protected the Proud Boys around town, they also gave them fist bumps." @darkhairme

White supremacists and other domestic extremists keep an active presence in U.S. police departments and other law enforcement agencies.
No centralized recruitment process exists for the 18k law enforcement agencies in the U.S., many of which have deep historical connections to racist ideologies. This presents opportunity for white supremacists and other right-wing extremists looking to expand their power base.

Shaquille Dukes was admitted into the hospital for double pneumonia. He received doctors orders to walk around the hospital.

He was stopped by a racist security guard, who called racist cops. He was arrested and accused of trying to steal the IV machine.

If elected president, what are your immediate plans to hold killer cops accountable and combat police harrassment/murder. Will black people finally feel secure and receive justice in America. #SurvivingAmericasPolice

@KamalaHarris If you bring a passion to connect with fed up Americans. And you address ending police killing unarmed people, helping Flint & Puerto Rico, fueling education/ending debt, increasing wages, abortion rights, China & no more concentration camps.

You'll win. #DemDebate
This first round of debating showed us something, but not enough. @ewarren was the obvious favorite, but she's still going to have a hard time making the black community believe. Which now sets the stage for @KamalaHarris. If Harris gives the world that Obama feeling, she'll win.
I've said it numerous times, and I'll say it again. @HillaryClinton should be the current president, and a woman should be our next president. #DemDebate

I'm watching @Lights4Liberty organize/prepare, and I'm totally against what's going on at the border in these Trump concentration camps.

But I'm still left asking why nobody has the same energy when it comes to police killing unarmed black people, & Flint not having clean water.
Hear me out. Tamir Rice was 12-years-old, and all he gets is a damn nonprofit dedicating the gazebo where a racist Cleveland police officer shot and killed him, dedicated to a museum?

Where is the outrage that @phoenixpolice pulled guns on black babies. Where are the protests?
Why isn't a Vigil being held to end police killing unarmed people in America? #SurvivingAmericasPolice

All these God damn hashtags and videos after Sandra Bland. Now police are executing black women who scream "I'm pregnant" and pulling guns on black girls and babies.

And yall muthafukas ain't furious?

Every black MAN should be in the streets right now marching for black women!
Fuck outta here man. Everybody silent is complicit, and just as guilty as these muthafukkkin pig beasts out here executing our people. I'm sorry but the Black Lives Matter movement DIDN'T STOP SHIT! They're still killing us.

It's time for the revolution. #SurvivingAmericasPolice

Dear white people. When I tweet these videos of police killing or harassing black people, it gives me hope reading the replies from white people outraged by police racism. Your voice is appreciated, because they've been ignoring us since the Rodney King beating caught on tape.
Amateur video captured King's beating after LA police officers stopped him for speeding March 3, 1991. Police beat King repeatedly, delivering 56 baton blows and six kicks -- causing skull fractures, and brain and kidney damage. #SurvingAmericasPolice
In November 1992, Malice Green became a household name in the U.S., after the 35-year-old unarmed black man was beaten to death by white cops in Detroit.
