Hello, Middle Class!

An Indiana police officer has kept his job after pushing over a man in a wheelchair – despite his entire department demanding he be fired.
Lafayette Police Department Lieutenant Tom Davidson can be seen on video, dated October 1st last year, shoving paraplegic Nicholas Kincade.
The assault appears to be prompted by Mr Kincade bumping Lt Davidson’s foot with his motorised wheelchair.
The incident occurred near the Excel School in Indianapolis, where police were called by school staff after Mr Kincade allegedly told them he had a gun in his backpack. Responding officers quickly found the man didn’t have a gun and he was told that he could leave with a trespassing warning, at the school’s request. According to Turnto23, Lt Davidson was put on leave during an investigation into his actions, but despite his department saying that he should be fired, the Lafayette Police Civil Service Commision – who vote on hiring and firing officers – instead ruled ‘unbecoming conduct’ and sentenced him to a 30-day unpaid suspension and a drop in rank. http://metro.co.uk/2014/07/05/police-officer-pushes-over-man-in-wheelchair-doesnt-get-fired-4787679/

Watch: Black teen uses Vine to catch white people following him around stores 

These videos allegedly show a number of convenience store clerks nonchalantly following Polo to “make sure” he doesn’t steal anything.
They are not slick. Each time Polo catches them snooping, his accusatory outburst sends them scurrying down the aisles. 
It would be hilarious social commentary if it was so real.

This is a photo of 17 year old Elsemiek de Borst. She was aboard the ill-fated Malaysian flight MH17. Her father, Hans, wrote a letter to the people he believes to be responsible for the death of this daughter. This letter is heartbreaking. Lennart Peeters translated it to english. Here’s the facebook link.

Detroit activist slams reporter on air for misreporting reasons for water shutoff to thousands

OMG you all have to watch this.

She’s my HERO!

DAYUM! She shut that FOX-reporter-wannabe down. Not here for that mess at all!

Bloop

I’m tryna be her when I grow up

Shiiett

Shitted on ‘em

How dare we claim to be the greatest country on Earth and allow our own people to live in abject poverty. Detroit saved this country when it was about to break and this is how we repay it? This is the future of America, kids. Whether you want to admit it or not. We need to help our people.
