Her book is very good - also very hard to read, as she tells in detail what happened to her.
Wow. I watched the video and you were right. It was difficult to see that level of abuse of power, in particular the tazing of his genitals, which was pure sadism. The cop in question only getting a three day suspension is a travesty. He should not be a police officer.Arizona police officers taze passenger 11 times for not ID'ing himself
Body-cam footage of the entire 2017 incident has been released. It shows the police asking a passenger in a car that has been pulled over for turn-signal violation, to provide ID, incorrectly claiming that passengers in vehicles are required to carry ID, which the passenger disputes. Officers then open the door and begin grappling with and demanding the man exit the vehicle, which he cannot do because the way in which they're holding him physically prevents him from disentangling himself from his seatbealt; nevertheless, for not cooperating, he is tased repeatedly, as the police continue to demand he "stop resisting" while laying on the ground outside the vehicle, his legs still wrapped in the seatbelt.
Eventually the victim's 11-year-old son reaching over from the backseat removes the seatbelt from his father's legs, whereupon the officer begins demanding the young child exit the vehicle as well, causing the boy to start crying. The officer turns his attention back to the man on the ground, who is now handcuffed with his hands behind his back, and proceeds to pull the back of the man's shorts down and tase him in the genitals for "resisting". In total, the man is tased 11 times, despite not having done anything illegal. The officer who did all the tasing received a 30-hour suspension.
The news site link contains the video of the entire incident; it's pretty difficult to watch.
Not taking away from the fact this illustrates widespread abuse of power rampant in our police force, but I would rather it be with tasers than with guns. Neither is good, but at least one has a better chance of surviving the taser.Great. The tazing incident happened close to where I am.
This next one caused a death in Phoenix.

Tasers are a *problem.* It's clear police don't use them ethically, and I think they should be banned. There are too many incidents like the two above. There are even examples of tasers used on people already in jail.
So the extermination of Jews, Roma, LGBTQIA, are all just fancy with her if Hitler had only kept it in Germany.The right-wing US youth movement, "Turning Point," is attempting to spread its activities to the UK, initially backed by some right-wing Conservative MPs.
This was always going to be a more hazardous enterprise than Turning Point might have expected, since certain aspects of US "conservatism" (e.g. religiosity, anti-abortion activism, support for Donald Trump) are -- quite rightly -- viewed as electoral poison by mainstream British Conservatives.
These concerns do not appear to have been misplaced in the case of Turning Point:
I forget where, but I saw a thread on Twitter recently that argues she's simply working her grift -- making a pretty good living from telling white (predominantly male) conservatives what they want to hear a black woman saying. It's a similar grift to Milo's, before he blew it.So the extermination of Jews, Roma, LGBTQIA, are all just fancy with her if Hitler had only kept it in Germany.
It always amazes me when POC sort out condone Nazis. Surly if they'd been a big enough demographic in Hitler's Germany, POC would have been on the but list, possibly first?
