13-year-old girl terrified after multiple cops detain her and berate her with slur for riding her bicycle: mother

Published

A Maryland teenager was pulled over by police for riding her bike on the street—and a police officer allegedly used a racial slur while detaining her, reports the Capital Gazette.

At a community meeting, her mother—who is white, but has biracial kids—said she feared for her children’s safety following her daughter’s encounter with police.

“I’m afraid to let my son walk to the local store,” Amy Brown said, according to the Gazette. “I’m afraid. Because he is black. He is not like Jayda, he is black. My daughter has not ridden a bike since the July 6 incident. She has not been outside in my neighborhood to play.”

The County’s police chief said the department was investigating the incident.

“We have zero tolerance for racist behavior in this police department,” police chief Timothy Altomare said. “If someone is wearing a uniform and spouts racist ideology. … It ain’t happening on my watch.”

But Brown told the Gazette she was told that papers were “on the lieutenant’s” desk and a letter would be sent to her in the mail,” in November and she still hasn’t heard from police about the incident.

“I feel like I have been lied to because I gave all my trust to the officers,” Brown said. “That they were going to do the right thing.”

‘He should be hospitalized’: Internet stunned after Trump goes off on completely incoherent Mt Rushmore rant

Published

on

President Donald Trump was asked on Tuesday whether his face should appear on Mount Rushmore along with other major American presidents.

“If I answer that question yes, I will end up with such bad publicity,” Trump told The Hill, before pivoting to an incoherent rant about fireworks.

The president's rambling shocked many people on Twitter:

Apart from Trump’s apparent inability to string together coherent English sentences on the fly, note also the sheer ignorance and apathy toward the idea that there might be legitimate reasons why fireworks are not detonated around the Black Hills. https://t.co/jja2XD19Mw

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
