WATCH: White NJ cop brutalizes screaming handcuffed man — and brags about it

Published

on

Newly released bodycam footage shows a New Jersey cop pummeling a screaming handcuffed man laying on the ground and later bragging about it to another officer, Trentonian reports.

The incident happened in April 2017, when a suspect named Chanzie Washington allegedly led cops on a car chase. He then got out of the car and ran on foot, and was eventually caught. When the police caught up with Washington, he was punched a number of times and brought to the ground.

There, the video appears to show Washington cuffed and being punched again as he screams in agony.

Among the cops who threw punches while Washington was allegedly cuffed was Drew Inman, the son of a cop who is a longtime friend of Trenton’s police chief.

Inman bragged about the punches—and was saved from possibly further incriminating himself by another officer.

“I beat the living shi…,” Inman says in view of the officer’s camera before the other officer points to his body camera.

According to Trentonian, Hispanic cop Antony Villanueva has borne the brunt of the backlash. He was immediately placed on restricted duty after the incident while Inman, friend of the chief’s son, went about normal duty for more than a month before he, too, was placed on restricted duty. Villanueva had 14 use of force reports in the previous two years, the paper reports, and is now suspended without pay while Inman remains on restricted duty.

“What Inman did was much worse, but they’re painting Anthony as the villain,” an anonymous cop from the department told Trentonian.

Trump’s attack on Sotomayor and Ginsburg backfires as people point out conservative justices’ conflicts of interest

Published

on

This Monday, President Trump attacked liberal Supreme Court Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Justice Ruth Bader and demanded that they recuse themselves from any cases that involve him.

“‘Sotomayor accuses GOP appointed Justices of being biased in favor of Trump,’” Trump tweeted while citing Laura Ingraham of Fox News. “This is a terrible thing to say. Trying to ‘shame’ some into voting her way? She never criticized Justice Ginsberg when she called me a ‘faker’. Both should recuse themselves on all Trump, or Trump related, matters!”

If Bloomberg is so rich, why does he steal workers’ wages?

Published

on

Michael Bloomberg has been pummeled over the treatment of women at his media and data company. Yet that is not the only blemish on the employment record of Bloomberg L.P. The company also has a serious problem with wage theft.

Violation Tracker lists a total of $70 million in penalties paid by Bloomberg for wage and hour violations, putting it in 32nd place among large corporations. Yet many of the companies higher on the list – such as Walmart, FedEx, and United Parcel Service – employ far more people than the roughly 20,000 at Bloomberg.

Tennessee Christians are replacing health insurance with ‘sharing ministries’ that require people to live Godly lives: report

christian evangelicals raising hands in praise prayer

On Tuesday, Brett Kelman of The Tennessean wrote about a spike in the uninsured rate in Tennessee — driven in part by 31,000 Christians in the state foregoing health insurance in favor of church-backed "sharing ministries."

These ministries are pitched as alternatives to medical coverage, but they are not health insurance at all — rather, they are better described as religious crowdfunding ventures where fellow congregants may cover your medical bills. But the key word is may. According to Kelman, "these groups don't actually guarantee any payment, and if you break their rules by smoking pot or having unmarried sex, you are on your own."
