Re: “#PhilandoCastile #AltonSterling #BlackLivesMatter — Share Your Words and Thoughts With the Express

306 people have been killed and 2,066 have been shot and injured in Chicago in 2016 alone. Hundreds more are dead in Baltimore, Detroit, st.louis, basically any black urban area is plagued by violence and death so I find it really had to get worked up over some extremely awful errors by law enforcement. But what is the real problem? Y

Re: “#PhilandoCastile #AltonSterling #BlackLivesMatter — Share Your Words and Thoughts With the Express

As a veteran who at 17 years of age made an oath to protect and defend this country I'm broken. Why is it that the mere presence of melanin is enough to cast doubt about my character, intellect, intent, or value before I even open my mouth? Why is it that my saying my life matters qualifies me as a racist? Why is my equality a threat to those who have it implicitly? Why do I have to beg and plead for my life to matter when I sacrificed my youth to protect a country that hates the very idea of a successful me? Why do the bigots who's freedom to speak I defended feel so comfortable speaking to me like trash. I've never hurt anyone, i am not a criminal' I am not a mutant, nor a super predator...I'm simply me and all I wanna know is why?

Re: “Federal Police Officer Offered to Pimp East Bay Teenager at Center of Oakland Police Sex-Abuse Scandal

We've been telling the public for years that this goes on... what will it take before you understand that the prohibition of consenting adult commercial sex ALWAYS leads to this type of corruption? While minors should not be engaging in the sex industry, the fact that it is against the law means that cops use the laws for their own ends. Decriminalize consenting adult commercial sex- PERIOD!

What does it take to get the cops to investigate themselves?

Re: “#PhilandoCastile #AltonSterling #BlackLivesMatter — Share Your Words and Thoughts With the Express

It is beyond frustration and anger for the tremendous sadness I feel for all the lives lost due to sick, phobic, psychos with guns randomly killing innocent people. But on the issue of Black Lives Matter...how can another innocent black man be killed at the hands of police? How can it be that this is still happening where the color of one's skin causes them to be killed for no apparent reason? It is on tape for all the world to see yet still the police do not admit they made a mistake. "Stand behind your own is bullshit" and they need to admit their faults and fire the ignorant asses who are shooting people for no reason. And even if and when men or women of color may be doing something illegal, Why SHOOT? Why not taser or spray them with something that will hault them? Why are the policemen trained to shoot to kill!!! KILLING people is wrong!!!! It needs to stop. What can we do as a people to stop them from killing innocent men and women of color?Unfortunately, I don't have an answer. I really don't know what it's going to take to make a change. I have a niece and two nephews of mixed race and I am scared to death for their future. If I were a mother of sons of color, I would be extremely frightened for their lives knowing that they can be pulled over whether walking or in a vehicle and harassed at the hands of the police for no reason. Wearing a hoodie, playing with a toy gun, walking in a white neighborhood, standing on a corner, walking in a convenience store, selling cigarettes, DOING NOTHING. This should not be happening. The police need to take a good hard look at the men and women on their force and get rid of the aggressive, warlike behavior of these officers. It is 2016 for gods sake!!! We have supposedly moved past the time of oppression and slavery and racism. We are regressing folks and it is not pretty. The color of ones skin should not cause them to be in danger and in fear of their lives. What happened to love for all? Why is it that people of color are treated like a lesser race. Why do we notice the color of one's skin at all? It is unacceptable, appalling and intolerable. If you haven't seen Michael Moore's documentary on "Where to Invade Next" you might want to have a look at it. There are policemen in the world who don't carry guns. And when asked why, their response is they don't need them!!! BLACK LIVES MATTER. STOP THE KILLING. Jail the corrupt criminal police officers who are killing innocent people and maybe that would put a little more trust in the police. At this point, I would have a hard time stopping if I were to be pulled over and I'm a white, 65 year old woman. Who knows what would happen!!!

That Second Amendment appears to apply only to white people.

Expect a lawsuit for slander you have to use the statement alleged.

Re: “Cops That Worked at Richmond Schools Now Under Investigation for Alleged Sexual Misconduct with Former Student

Obvious Tong was working during visit at the Guap estate. Was Hill on-duty during visiting? Obviously also Guap received Hill's message (904 in OPD 9 codes) and stopped texting Hill concerning coming over for sex. But why after being so spy like did Hill thank her? I guess he is a polite child molester! Is Tong still working everyday with school age children and "mentoring" the Explorer Post??

So many unanswered questions!! More to come I hope...

Re: “Landlord Being Sued for Allegedly Pushing Out SRO Tenants

This is a very bad landlord. He took out all our belongings without notice. We are using law to protect ourselves. He has a Chinese Wife that's why he believes that he understands our Chinese don't know how to use the law to help ourselves. But don't forget that this is in the USA not in China. We will win the case and we will see.
