I know that this happens, but, it’s still outrageous.๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜

This also had the effect of substantially lightening his complexion. They then put the altered mugshot in a photo array. The tellers picked out Mr. Allen. He was arrested and charged.

A court is now deciding whether what the police did is constitutional. https://twitter.com/DrRJKavanagh/status/1162594772437147648?s=17

Think on that….
They were so determined to put this man in jail that the physically altered his appearance so as to get “ID Confirmation “.

I am not saying that the man is innocent. That he didn’t commit previous crimes. But, HE DIDN’T COMMIT THESE CRIMES.
But, law enforcement decided that he should go to jail, so they attempted to frame him. Yes, I believe this is a frameup.

And, as was further put:

Rebecca J. Kavanagh (@DrRJKavanagh) Tweeted:
This is great but your client usually sits in jail until the hearing, which could be 6 months or a year later and so the issue is never litigated because they want to be free and a prosecutor offers a plea that will get them out of jail so they plead even if they are not guilty. https://twitter.com/DrRJKavanagh/status/1162757741733171202?s=17

They will offer a plea…..even if they are not guilty.๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ 

Something is wrong, and every person in the law enforcement chain that went along with this attempted framing should be fired and then arrested themselves.

And, just don’t think that it only happens with adults:

      Can I borrow him for a few days, pretty please? My brother that lived with me until he passed would cook the same way your brother cooks. In fact, when he was alive, I could barely get in my own kitchen to cook anything. I think about him everyday. We had a plan to buy some property out in the country and continue living together after I retired, but sadly, we didn’t get to fulfill our dream. He wanted to establish a safe place where kids could come and play sports and learn a variety of things, including computer programming.

      • Majiir I hardly cook anymore. I just let him have the kitchen. I stay out of the way. He’s suppose to cook roasted chicken today. His roasted chicken is so delicious.

    I dont know if Elizabeth Warren proposing to eliminate the 94 crime bill is a hit out on Biden and Bernie or a way to appeal to Black voters.

    Either way it’s nonsense. https://twitter.com/Ange_Amene/status/1163849608180580353?s=17

    Team Bernie deciding to โ€œgo to warโ€ with Warren was inevitable. They have the same base of college educated whites and Bernie feels they occupy the same ideological space. Unfortunately for both, they arenโ€™t doing well with Black voters in the south. So may not matter anyway https://twitter.com/marcushjohnson/status/1163841434862149632?s=17

    Read the replies and let it sink in. You cannot convert Trumpists. It’s on the order of a religion, steeped in deeply held racial views and fears. You cannot negotiate with Trumpism. Democrats need to get this through their heads. Defeat them — soundly — or be ruled by them. https://t.co/LDaVc4jkx4 https://twitter.com/JoyAnnReid/status/1163139397124050946?s=17

    Texas couple with a history of running gay conversion programs are charged with human trafficking for ‘forcing underage boys at their religious home for troubled youths to do lawn work and punishing them by making them stare at walls if they misbehaved’

    Gary Wiggins, 49, and wife Meghann, 34, were charged with human trafficking
    They ran The Joshua Home in Bertram, Texas, a home for troubled young boys
    Wiggins has been accused in the past of running gay conversion programs
    Despite being reported to authorities several times, he has evaded arrest for years by uprooting his operation whenever police looked into him
    In July last year, eight boys aged 10-17 were removed from their home amid claims of abuse and forced labor
    The Wiggins moved to Alabama but were extradited back to Texas this weekend
    Now, they are each being held on $100,000 bonds in county jail
    Former ‘students’ at Wiggins’ other homes have told how he beat them with belts to ‘get the demons out of them and make them straight’

    Trump’s scam is failing him.

    * Trump publicly says recession talk is a conspiracy

    * But privately, Trump fears economy could hurt his reelection

    * To top it all off, Trump laughably claims his tax cut is making ordinary US consumers “rich”

      This reminds me of the time I worked for Sears. The branch decided to send some of us to a class on how to become department managers. There were about 10 of us in the group. We had to take a test to pass the course. Well, I was the only one in the group who passed the test. Everyone in the d@mn store was surprised, and some began to question whether I’d cheated to pass. Why? Because I’m a black female, and in their minds, we’re not supposed to be able to master information that white males can’t master. I never took a certification test more than once! Some folks need to stop with the stereotyping. Because of my mom, I could read before I started school. My parents encouraged my voracious reading habit by ordering books and magazines for me while I was growing up. I read everything from Nancy Drew to Redbook to Readers Digest. I remember my mom making a surprise bed check one night. She caught me reading a book under the sheets while using a flashlight. She didn’t fuss at me, she just told me to turn off the flashlight and go to sleep. LOL.
