Georgia officer restraining 10-year-old during father’s arrest was excessive!


A Georgia police officer’s conduct with an emotional 10-year-old boy is drawing scrutiny after the police department released body camera video of an officer restraining the child.

On Friday, officers with the Athens-Clarke County Police Department were called to a home in relation to a domestic violence suspect.

Officers carried out their investigation and placed the suspect under arrest.

While taking the man into custody, police said the boy became emotionally distraught and started running around, begging officers not to arrest his father.

Body camera footage captured by an officer was posted on Facebook.

At first, the boy is seen being restrained by the adults around him while he yelled at officers.

Back up,” one woman yelled, pulling the boy back. “Who you trying to fight?”

When those attempts to deter the child were unsuccessful, he became more upset and started running around and jumped towards an officer.

The officer is then seen wrestling the child to the ground before forcefully restraining him.

“Calm down, calm down man,” the officer called out.

Within a few minutes, the child settled down and started to apologize.

“Understand,” the officer said. “Yes, sir,” the child replied. “You don’t run up on an officer.”

The boy settled down and officers helped him to his feet and took off the handcuffs.

Officers then escorted the boy to see his father who was in the back of a cop car.

The child asked his father for his phone and said he was going to call someone to bail him out before letting out a cry and patting his father on the head.

“He didn’t do nothing,” he insisted.

The officer allows the boy to approach the patrol car, leading him to the window where his father was seated. The boy takes his father’s phone, letting his dad knows that he’ll call someone who will be able to bail him out.

“Will you get out, Daddy?” he asks. “I love you.”

“Be strong,” the father, who was restrained in the back of the vehicle tells his son, as he leans his head toward the window so his son can pat his head.

The department released the body camera footage after the boy’s family posted their own video to Facebook.

(Sic) didn’t do anything but was tryna talk to his dad who was in the police car,” Ariel Collins, the boy’s cousin, wrote on her Facebook post.

Police Chief Scott Freeman ordered an internal investigation due to a “juvenile involvement.”

Why is America So Racially charged? This week on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


ABC has cancelled Roseanne Barr’s popular scripted television show after the feisty star went on a Twitter rampage on Tuesday morning referring to former President Barack Obama’s advisor Valerie Jarrett as an ape..

The cancellation announcement came after Roseanne apologized for her offensive tweets and openly lesbian comic Wanda Sykes said she was quitting the show.

Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj,” Barr tweeted, referring to Jarrett, who is mixed race and originally from Iran.

In other tweets Roseanne mentioned Chelsea Clinton and George Soros as Nazi sympathizers.

The revamped Roseanne Show enjoyed high ratings but was short lived as millions of Trump supporters tuned into the show.

I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste.

— Roseanne Barr (@therealroseanne) May 29, 2018

Unfortunately her apology was a little too late.

Protests and Outrage after two black men arrested at Philly Starbucks


Protesters gathered outside a Philadelphia Starbucks on Sunday and planned to regroup again on today after two black men were arrested there last week when they allegedly refused to leave.

The original incident occurred last Thursday, when a Starbucks employee called 911 because two black men were sitting inside the café. Soon after they arrived, police handcuffed the men and escorted them out of the shop. Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross, who is black, said the men hadn’t purchased anything and refused to leave, which led to the arrest. Yet a protesting white women said, she’s walks in all the time to use the restroom without purchasing anything and was never arrested.

A video of the arrest and ensuing confusion went viral on Twitter.

Michelle Saahene witnessed the entire event, as she’d been at the Starbucks for nearly an hour. She told NBC News on Sunday that, as a black woman, she was slightly nervous when the police officers entered the coffee shop, but she was then shocked as the two men when they were approached by police officers.

After the two men were refused the bathroom, they just sat at a table silently and played with their phones as they waited for a friend, Saahene told NBC News.

“The cops were asking them to leave because they weren’t purchasing anything,” Saahene said. “[The two men] said they were confused. This is a Starbucks. Since when are people asked to leave a Starbucks who are just sitting there?”

Saahene said that a white man sitting next to her had been at the Starbucks for 30 minutes without making a purchase and a jogger came in and used the bathroom without making a purchase.

That’s one of the reasons she felt compelled to approach the employee who called 911.

“’Did you feel threatened’?” she said she asked the Starbucks barista. “She didn’t look at me. ‘Did you feel like your life was threatened?’ She still didn’t look at me.”

Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson swiftly apologized that the 911 call was made and that the two men were arrested. He said that the company planned to investigate the matter and retrain its staff, but said the store manager “never intended for these men to be arrested and this should never have escalated as it did.”

Unfortunately it’s too late! We’re sounding the call to boycott “StarBucks” everywhere.!!

Kneeling in Protest is not about the flag, Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


Yes she’s back and she’s back with a vengeance and she’s talking about the one thing that’s hot!! The NFL Boycott.

NFL players reacted with rage when President Trump told NFL bosses to fire players who protest and disrespect the American flag during games.

The president mocked the player protests and he told football fans to walk out of the stadiums if they see players take a knee during the national anthem.

“When people like yourselves turn on television and you see those people taking the knee when they are playing our great national anthem – the only thing you could do better is if you see it, even if it’s one player, leave the stadium,” Trump said. “I guarantee things will stop.”

Trump Tells NFL Owners to FIRE Protesting Players: “Get That Son of a Bitch Off the Field!”


NFL players reacted with rage on Friday after President Trump told NFL bosses to fire players who protest and disrespect the American flag during games when addressing the national anthem.

Trumps comments were in response to reports that player protests have resulted in low TV ratings and half empty stadiums.

Trump made the statements during a rally for Alabama Senate candidate Luther Strange in Huntsville on Friday night.

NFL players were livid after hearing Trump’s remarks. Many of them took to social media to vent their anger at the Commander-in-Chief.

The NFL Players’ Union also issued a statement, saying they will never back down from protecting the players’ rights to protest.
