Research suggests that family violence is two to four times higher in the law-enforcement community than in the general population. So where’s the public outrage?
I hate cops. I don’t trust cops.
I don’t care if your uncle is a cop.
Fuck your uncle, I hate him too.
In the first seven months of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration, the NYPD made more arrests for petty crimes than it did last year under former mayor Michael Bloomberg—and the racial breakdown of those arrests remains the same, according to numbers released yesterday by the Police Reform Organizing Project (PROP).
From January through July of 2014, police made more than 137,000 arrests for misdemeanor offenses, 86 percent of which involved people of color, according to data obtained by PROP from the state’s Division of Criminal Justice Services. Last year’s number during the same period was just above 136,000, with 87 percent involving racial minorities.
Repairing relationships between the NYPD and the city’s black and Latino communities was a primary tenet of de Blasio’s campaign for mayor. Since taking office, however, he has faithfully defended the strategy of Broken Windows policing, which charges officers to aggressively enforce low-level infractions in the hopes of preventing more serious crimes.
“I could understand why any New Yorker might say, ‘Well, that may not be such a big offense, or that may not be something that troubles any one of us individually’… But breaking a law is breaking a law, and it has to be addressed in one form or another,” de Blasio said at a news conference held after the death of Eric Garner, who was killed during an arrest for selling untaxed cigarettes in July.
In the wake of that death, however, some New Yorkers are asking whether repairing relationships and maintaining Broken Windows are irreconcilable goals.
“Unfortunately, these practices continue not only to inflict harm on and to fuel anger and resentment in low-income communities of color, but also to divert needed police personnel and resources from addressing the serious felonies that beset certain areas in our city,” said Robert Gangi, PROP’s director.
The third most common charge for a misdemeanor arrest continues to be possession of marijuana. These arrests received particular scrutiny under Mayor Bloomberg, since small-scale marijuana possession is only illegal if the substance is in public view. Defense attorneys argued that police were arresting large numbers of African Americans and Latinos after compelling them to empty their pockets. After much public outcry, then-NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly ordered officers to obey the public-view law.
Marijuana arrests dropped by nearly half during the final years of the Bloomberg administration (from 50,000 in 2011 to 28,600 in 2013) but have remained steady under de Blasio—and almost exclusively target people of color. In the first seven months of this year, the NYPD made more than 17,000 marijuana possession arrests. Nearly 50 percent of arrestees were black; 38 percent were Hispanic.
The city has also faced controversy over arrests for trespassing in public areas of apartment buildings and public housing developments. In a class action lawsuit still making its way through the US District Court, public housing residents claimed that they are stopped so frequently by police that it amounts to a de-facto pedestrian checkpoint system in their own homes. “You could not imagine this practice going on in many of the white neighborhoods of the city,” said an attorney for the Legal Aid Society, which helped to bring the suit.
From January through July of 2014, the NYPD arrested close to 7,600 people on misdemeanor trespassing charges. More than 87 percent were black or Hispanic.
Looks like de Blasio’s stats for his aintshitness are finally popping up with numbers. Appointing an islamophobic ass person as the new police chief was all we really needed to know that he wasn’t about shit. I’m glad the numbers are showing that for anyone who thought otherwise. Same shit, different face.
just like a lot of people have normalized this racist idea that black people are inherently and naturally dangerous as is our culture, I’ve normalized the idea that white/white passing people are inherently racist and antiblack for my own safety. I don’t wanna waste time building connections with these people and come to find out they a racist piece of shit. my time is more valuable than that.

The best deodorant you will ever use
Seriously. 1/4 teaspoon in each pit and you can sweat your ass off, totally stink-free for like 2 full days. It’s a natural anti-bacterial so those little fuckers won’t multiply and make you smell. Plus it’s cheaper and healthier than any deod you can buy anywhere.
Use equal parts of the following:
With a few drops of whatever essential oil you want, for fragrance. Otherwise it basically just smells like nothing. I use tea tree oil & pine needle oil. Cuz they’re MANLY.
Note - It pretty much turns to liquid if it’s warmer than about 75 degrees. If you want to keep it solid, you can refrigerate it or add a little more corn starch.
Reblogging myself again, cuz I still use this and it’s still awesome
