This photo is disgusting. 

He was probably also beaten and arrested for assault immediately after this picture was taken.

That has been the regular here in NY around OWS. Its gross, and totally worth cutting a bitch over.

    “You’re under arrest”

    “What for?”

    “It doesn’t matter.”

    ok he’s fucking insane…. but he has a legal right to know why he’s being arrested, and saying “it doesn’t matter” is bullshit

    LMAO. It’s messed up, and he’s strange, but it’s hilarious to me how he just takes off. Fucking gone!

    DYING! homeboy straight up took off on them pigs. i’m still in awe of how he completely avoided being tasered.

    what a fucking legend!

    This horrific story offers a window into the reality of life for low socioeconomic status minorities:

    Ikenna, a 28-year old construction worker, went to deposit a $8,463.21 Chase cashier’s check at his local Chase branch, only for the teller to decide that neither he nor his check looked right and he got tossed in jail for forgery, KING5 reports. The next day, a Friday the bank realized its mistake and left a message with the detective. But it was her day off, so he spent the entire weekend in jail.
    By the time he got out, he had been fired from his job for not showing up to work. His car had been towed as well. It ended up getting sold off at auction because he couldn’t afford to get it out of the pound. He had been relying on that cashier’s check for his money but it was taken as evidence and by the time he got it back it was auctioned off.
    All this while the cashier’s check had been issued by the very bank he was trying to cash it at.
    Chase didn’t even apologize, not even after a year.

    Meanwhile, in his freshly pressed khakis, the young white college student who used to live across the hall managed to cash, on two separate occasions, two checks he stole out of my mailbox and forged without the slightest problem.

    But hey, I’m sure this has nothing to do with race or class.

    Whaaaaat the fuck.

    I can’t even articulate in words how this angers me. I really can’t. When are we burning this whole thing down? Tomorrow? I’ll be there.

    Holy fucking shit.

  8. DREAMers Arrested in Indiana Yesterday on Hunger Strike

    DREAMers Arrested in Indiana Yesterday on Hunger Strike

    By Maegan La Mala

    10 May 2011

    Earlier, when I wrote about President Obama’s immigration speech, I mentioned the arrests of five DREAM Activists in Indiana.

    Erick, Omar, Lupe, Paola and Sayra were arrested yesterday in Gov. Daniels office in Indiana protesting two immigration laws that passed in the state legislature. Senate Bill 590 is similar to Arizona’s SB1070 and would make local police into de facto immigration agents. HB1402 forces undocumented Indiana students to pay out-of-state tuition rates – triple the cost of in-state rates in some cases. The protesters demanded a meeting with Daniels, a request he denied.

    Now incarcerated, the Indiana Five started a hunger strike, refusing to be bonded out of jail, until the Governor vetoes HB1402 and SB590. The media is reporting that a spokesperson for Daniels says the governor is expected to sign the bills into law.

    There is a petition you can sign urging Governor Daniels to veto Senate Bill 590 and House Bill 1402 immediately. The DREAMers are also requesting donations towards a bail fund.

       Marcus Brown

    “It happened again! This time a lazy Waterbury (CT) police officer electrocuted 26-year old Marcus Brown with 50,000 volts of electricity from his taser gun. Officer Andy Sanchez, a 3-year veteran, has been placed on administrative duty while state police investigate Brown’s death.

    Officer Sanchez was called to Saint Mary’s Hospital around 12:30am on Sunday, May 1. Sanchez and another unidentified police officer arrived in the lobby of the hospital’s emergency room to a report of a man creating a disturbance.


    The man, Marcus Brown, was taken into custody and placed in the back of a police cruiser. He was handcuffed and under control of the police. However, it appears that he was disrespectful to Officer Sanchez by kicking the door and window of the police car. Of course, Sanchez valued his car over human life … so he took out his taser gun and electrocuted Brown.


    Brown died right then and there.

    Brown didn’t have to die. He was handcuffed and not a threat to himself or others. There was no DEADLY FORCE involved. So, why did Sanchez pull his taser? It appears that the taser was simply being used as a HUMAN CATTLE PROD to compel obedience and respect.

    The young man was in a hospital. Perhaps he was upset for a medical reason. We’ll never know Brown’s side of the story because he was killed. He’s dead because a police officer was way too quick to reach for a taser gun in order to make his job easier. When will the police learn?

    I can’t figure out how to post the video here so that nobody has to go to bullshit evil sites, but I managed to at least get the video off of the original site (which was a highly disgusting site) and I changed the title of the video (but original offensive title remains at link)…

    Anyway—the video is of peruvian women (I don’t know spanish enough to be able to translate, so if there is something offensive being said in video, I don’t know)—one of them was being arrested (and harrassed) by a gang of police—and a group of women stepped in a protected her—and in true femme style, even used their sparkly silver shoes!

    in the end, they chased off the police!

    there is violence against trans women (and I *think* sex workers, not sure tho) in the video—but in the end, there is an incredible demonstration of love and solidarity.
