2 white women adoped 6 black children.

An 80 y.o. man called 911 because his daughter saw a girl escape from the 2nd floor window & came next door begging for help.

The 🚔 didn’t even knock on their door.

Later, the women drove the children off a cliff.
The two adopted mothers paraded the children around on social media as tokens for their “progressive” activism, but behind the scenes were torturing them with physical abuse and neglect. The children were so malnourished they appeared years younger than they actually were.
This photo of the oldest child grasping onto a police officer in the wake of post-Michael Brown protests went viral.

In hindsight Devonte Hart was likely desperate for someone to help him escape.

More than 6M Americans have already voted 🗳

Democrats have returned more than twice the number of ballots as Republicans.
Hillary Clinton lead in early voting in 2016 as well but not by these margins.

For instance, in Florida Democrats outvoted Republicans by only 2% at this point in 2016. But right now 53% of the votes cast in Florida are Democrats versus 28% Republicans.
In North Carolina, registered Democrats have cast 52% of the ballots so far, up from 36% in 2016.

Registered Republicans account only for 17% of the ballots turned in right now. That is down a whopping 37% from 2016.

One of my friends was dating this dude — he was fine AF but I told her from the beginning don’t catch feelings because he ain’t shit. She found herself buying him his dream 🚗 for his b’day. After she found out he cheated on her w/10 girls she dumped him and he took the 🚗
The car was $20k. I told her call the police and report it stolen. She said I can’t because it’s in his name. WHAT?! I told you if you gonna play sugar mama buy the car, register in YOUR name and just let him drive it. Now he’s gone and you’re stuck with the LEASE.
The car still has $10k on it to be paid off and she depleted her life savings on the down payment and other girls for him (PlayStation, jewelry, Yeezys, and other shit)

I feel bad but I told her at every fucking turn not to trust him, just get the D and keep it pushing

🚨 White woman with missing teeth falsely claims a black family is stealing her car.

6 white bystanders believe her, surround the car, block them from leaving, start physically attacking them, and then follow on motorcycles when they try to escape.

This is terrifying to watch
This is the rest of the video that shows them trying to escape while one man remains on the hood of the car and another is chasing them on his motorcycle.
People have reached out to Lee Allen, the father in the video offering help to pay for the damages.

The white woman apparently “believed” it was a car she had that was stolen 6 years ago.
