At a deposition, Ferguson’s former police chief revealed that his staff did not keep records of incidents in which officers used force against citizens, so long as no one died; in other words, there was no way of telling how often incidents like Davis’ happened.

remember shit like this when they talk about how mike brown’s shooter had no disciplinary record

Please keep Sharing and become a Member at http://lakota.cc/1kvf8ka. In direct violation of the Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978, the state of South Dakota takes Lakota children from their families and their communities and places them in non-Native foster care homes. South Dakota does this while state-licensed Native foster care homes sit empty. Why?  Follow the Money. Lakota foster care children are indeed “money-makers” for the State of South Dakota, which classifies ALL Lakota children as “Special Needs Children”, thereby authorizing the State of South Dakota to collect up to $79,000 per child, amounting to some $65 million in federal monies per year for the state. The Lakota People’s Law Project is working with the Lakota tribes in South Dakota to put an end to this injustice. Five tribes have submitted Title IV Federal Planning Grant Applications to implement their own Child and Family Services Programs and have federal money redirected to the tribes rather than through the corrupt state systems.

Hate doesn’t breed hate. Hate inspires anger in victims of hatred and that anger is called hatred to delegitimize it and villainize people. If you wanna help people who are victims then first you gotta stop acting like they’re just as bad their oppressors and abusers.
