Hedy Epstein, a 90-year-old Holocaust survivor, was arrested on Monday during unrest over the death of Michael Brown,KMOV reports.

Epstein, who aided Allied forces in the Nuremberg trials, was placed under arrest in downtown St. Louis, Missouri “for failing to disperse” during a protest of Governor Jay Nixon’s decision to call in National Guard into Ferguson. Eight others were also arrested.

“I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager. I didn’t think I would have to do it when I was ninety,” Epstein told The Nation during her arrest. “We need to stand up today so that people won’t have to do this when they’re ninety.”

Oh, you’re upset and feeling bad? I’m just going to sit right here, use your arm and lap as a bed, and purr.

Cops target minorities

This is a fact. You can look at statistics and see that minorities will be targeted by police before white people. 

THIS DOES NOT MEAN COPS DON’T KILL INNOCENT WHITE PEOPLE. 

They absolutely do. 

But 1/3 of all black men will spend time in jail. 

One out of every three. 

This should terrify you. 

Admitting that cops treat minorities differently than white people does not diminish the horror of innocents killed by police. It opens a discussion about why the cops are trained to treat people differently based on the color of their skin. Open your eyes.

"14-year-old Parkview High School Freshman, Caleb Christian was concerned about the number of incidents of police abuse in the news.  Still, he knew there were many good police officers in various communities, but had no way of figuring out which communities were highly rated and which were not.  

So, together with his two older sisters: Parkview High School senior Ima Christian, and Gwinnett School of Math, Science, and Technology sophomore, Asha Christian, they founded a mobile app development company– Pinetart Inc., under which they created a mobile app called Five-O.

Five-O, allows citizens to enter the details of every interaction with a police officer.  It also allows them to rate that officer in terms of courtesy and professionalism and provides the ability to enter a short description of what transpired.  These details are captured for every county in the United States. Citizen race and age information data is also captured.

Additionally, Five-O allows citizens to store the details of each encounter with law enforcement; this provides convenient access to critical information needed for legal action or commendation.”

Admitting that cops target people based on the color of their skin does not make you a racist. It makes the cops racist. One out of every three black men will spend time in a cage in America. That should terrify every one of you, regardless of the color of your skin. 

For humanity to move forward, this needs to end.

When you look at a picture and say “Statistically speaking, 10 of the 30 people in  this picture will end up in a cage" there’s a problem. 

When cops kill someone within seconds of arriving on the scene, there’s a problem. 

The police are better armed than troops invading Iraq, and have no repercussions for their actions. Here’s a cop who raped a woman WHILE ON DUTY and got probation

Don’t stop speaking out against the police state, please. This is about more than Michael Brown. So many have been murdered by police.

Rudy Giuliani’s daughter arrested for shoplifting and is labelled ‘rebellious;’

Winona Ryder caught on camera shoplifting and found not-guilty.

Mike Brown ‘allegedly’ steals $.50 swisher and is executed for ‘robbery.’ 

Important.

Naw its worse, the officer didn’t know he was a suspect

ONE OUT OF EVERY THREE BLACK MEN WILL SPEND TIME IN JAIL. 

ONE OUT OF EVERY THREE.

Government and Police are the most racist people I know. This needs to end.
