‘Wait until your a*ses turn 18 — then you’re mine.’ Watch cop’s racist attack on black students in Virginia

A police officer in Richmond, Virginia has gone viral after an incident on Thursday, in which African-American middle schoolers filmed him shouting, “Wait until your assess turn 18. Then you’re mine.”

Cameron Hilliard, the eighth-grade student who posted the incident, said that someone shouted “f**k the police” as the officer pulled up in a squad car as she and her friends were walking to an after-school activity. She said that the shout had not been any of her friends.

The officer’s threat highlights the school-to-prison pipeline, whereby African-American children are more likely to be arrested and charged for offenses that white kids simply receive counseling or psychiatric treatment for.

According to NBC News, Richmond mayor Levar Stoney issued a statement condemning the officer’s actions. “I trust that the Richmond Police Department will conduct a quick and thorough investigation and respond accordingly,” said Stoney. “This behavior is unacceptable. It reinforces stereotypes of our communities that are hurtful and damages the relationship between our police department and the citizens they are charged to serve.”

FEDCO is a U.S. company operating on American soil. It makes sophisticated pumps that turn seawater into fresh water. But to protect itself against punishing new tariffs imposed by President Donald Trump, it has turned to an obscure program that began 85 years ago — the last time tariffs soared as high as they are today.

Trump and his enablers are now in open defiance of all democratic norms: Congress needs to quit stalling and impeach

Published

During all the months when the world waited with bated breath for the results of the Mueller report, the most pressing question was always whether the special prosecutor would find that President Trump and his campaign had colluded with the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 election. Trump had branded the investigation a "witch hunt" and repeated the words "No collusion! No obstruction!" on a loop.
