Roosevelt Twyne, a 25-year-old African-American security guard, was arrested by Roselle Park Police.
Evan Nappen, Twyne's attorney, says his client was charged for illegally carrying a firearm and being in possession of so-called hollow point ammunition.
"He was arrested for the hollow point ammunition," Nappen told the Free Beacon. "Then they claimed he was transporting his handgun illegally. He had a permit to carry a handgun. The law … makes it clear that it's illegal to transport unless you are licensed pursuant to chapter 58. And that is precisely what a handgun carry permit is."
Nappen stated that the ammunition his client was carrying was not hollow points, instead, they were "critical duty" which is the same ammunition that his employer issues.
Twyne has stated that he has been unable to work for a month.
According to the Freebeacon, a crowdfunding effort to pay for Twyne's defense has raised nearly $5,500 from 189 donors as of Friday.
This incident does not surprise me what-so-ever. The officers that made this arrest did not care whether or not Twyne had the right to carry his firearms. They were trying to send a message. A black man with a gun is not tolerated in New Jersey. The fact that he was a security officer with a gun permit makes his arrest even egregious. It should be a lesson to black people everywhere, even if you are in compliance with the law, certain laws are not for you.
To be honest, I’m surprised Twyne wasn’t shot. Police know they can easily shoot a black man these days. With Twyne having a gun they could have shot him and said they felt like their live were in danger.
The right-wing conspiracy site, properly titled conspiracy.news, has made the claim that medical experiments are killing Black people. In the article, the writer states that Black people are taking the bait by believing in the threat of White supremacy to be real. The article also labels Black awareness groups such as Black Lives Matter as a terrorist group.
The article also lists Planned Parenthood as a means to kill black babies. While I may agree with some of the points that the writer made, I disagree with the notion that white supremacists are not a threat to the black community. A growing number of white supremacy groups are spreading throughout the U.S.A ,and have armed themselves preparing for a race war.
I don't see black extremist groups arming themselves. In fact, most black people in America know that we are out-numbered and trying to have a shootout would only lead to blacks being slaughtered. It's the white extremist groups that are forming militias, practicing at the gun range and just praying for the day that they get to "kill a nigger".
Although the conspiracy news article is riddled with quite a bit of propaganda, still there is some truth written here.
The Washington Examiner is making a bold claim which may have some validity.
In a post by the Washington Examiner, President Trump is supposedly polling better than any other Republican has polled.
Both Emerson Polling and Rasmussen Reports have it at about 34%, a stunning number. - Washington Examiner
If these poll numbers are correct then this would all but assure that Trump will be
re-elected. The Examiner sites low black unemployment as one of the reasons Trump may be doing so well with Black people.
The Examiner also states that a new Zogby Analytics survey found that African American support is at the “highest levels of the year,”
“Not surprisingly, all African Americans do not hate Trump!” pollster Jonathan Zogby said
I personally don't trust these polls. As a Black man, I have yet to meet Black people that favor Trump or would even admit considering voting for Trump.
However, that doesn't mean there aren't some Black people that are keeping their support for Trump quiet.
Most trusted polls show the Black community is in favor of former VP Joe Biden. This has been steady from the moment Biden announced he would run for President. Much of Biden's support from Black people come from his being connected to Obama for eight-years.
I would say that polls claiming that Trump has a favorable rating amongst African Americans is just wishful thinking but you never know.
George Zimmerman is suing the Martin family for 100 million dollars. Black people across America hate this man with a passion but to some racist ass White people George Zimmerman is a hero.
What racists have argued concerning the Trayvon Martin murder is that Trayvon was no saint. Here's the thing, nobody called him a saint. Trayvon was 17 year old kid that got into trouble like a lot of kids do. However, the fact of the matter is this, racists like the idea that a non-black person can get away with killing a black man because it assures them that the justice system is still in their favor.
So whatever loophole they can find will be used in every case. In this case, it was "Stand your ground," which should have never applied in this case due to the fact that there is actual audio of police officers telling George Zimmerman to leave Trayvon alone. You cannot use self-defense as your defense when you are the one that is the aggressor.
It's bad enough that Zimmerman murdered Trayvon and got away with it but now he has the fucking audacity to sue his family, claiming that they used a false witness which is "Diamond" Trayvon's alleged girlfriend.
Zimmerman's lawsuit alleges that Jeantel was not Trayvon's real girlfriend and that she was not the person on the phone with Trayvon just before he was shot killed. Zimmerman alleges that she provided false statements against him.
The Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump fired back at George Zimmerman with a statement of his own.
"This plaintiff continues to display a callous disregard for everyone but himself, revictimizing individuals whose lives were shattered by his own misguided actions," Crump said in a statement. "He would have us believe that he is the innocent victim of a deep conspiracy, despite the complete lack of any credible evidence to support his outlandish claims."
- Martin Family Attorney Benjamin Crump
As far as I'm concerned it does not matter to me whether the woman that testified against George Zimmerman is actually Trayvon's girlfriend or not. I honestly don't give a fuck. George Zimmerman is a Goddamn murderer and he deserves to put to death.
Jean Cramer, a candidate for city council in Maryville Michigan, shocked everyone in the political forum by actually suggesting that they keep the city as White as possible.
“Keep Marysville a white community as much as possible,” said Cramer, one of five candidates vying for three open council seats in November.
As much as the politicians may act as if they are shocked by Jean Cramer's comments but we all know gentrification is happening in every major city in America. Although Marysville is not a major city and is a majority-white town, it is the way Cramer wants to keep it.
It's very rare that you see a politician actually be honest and tell the whole world how they feel about Black people.
This is one of those moments.
[Keep city as white 'as much as possible,' council candidate says, stunning forum in Michigan]
After all of the mass shootings that have taken place at the hands of White extremists and White Nationalists, Black extremists is now considered more dangerous than White extremists are.
It is almost bizarre to think that Black extremism is the focus of counter terrorism when I can not recall one Black extremist killing people in the name of Black Nationalism.
Not only is Black Identity Extremism considered more dangerous than White Extremism but under Trumps administration, it is at the very top of the list of terrorist groups like Al Queda.
This is a desperate attempt to downplay White terrorists in the U.S that have reacted to their victimization mentality with prejudice and violence.
For years right-wing media propagandists have fed low-income White people the lie that brown people are taking their jobs away. In reality, technology is taking everybody's jobs away.
I am amazed at how often Black people are called out for labeling ourselves as victims but nobody calls out the Whites that literally blame minorities for everything. Truth is I should not be amazed at anything anymore. So I will end with this... if one Black person shot up a school or a mall, in the minds of racists, it would be worse than the many white extremists that have done the same thing over the past five years. So I will throw out a number here, if one Black extremist commits a terrorist attack, it would take anywhere from ten to twenty White extremists committing the same violent act before White extremism would be considered a threat. Yeah, that sounds about fair.
An Ole Miss student named Ben LeClere was suspended after he posted a photo of himself and 2 other men standing with guns in front of Emmett Tills roadside plaque that has been filled with bullet holes. The plaque commemorates the spot where Emmett Tills body was discovered after being brutally beaten to death by White men who believed Till whistled at a White woman. The men that killed Emmett Till were later acquitted by an all-white jury. It is not clear whether or not the men in the photo are the ones who shot the plaque. There have been several attempts to contact the men seen in the photo but so far there has been no response from either of them. Apparently, LeClere posted the photo on John Lowe’s Instagram page and it received hundreds of likes.
It is important o note that the three men involved belonged to a fraternity that calls General Robert E. Lee their “spiritual founder. Supposedly, Kapa Alpha has suspended all three of them but I believe it is only do to the pressure that as been on the fraternity by news organizations. I would not be surprised if the fraternity allows them back in after the story loses dies down a bit.
It seems as if the Black vote has become the key to the White House again. Trump proved in 2016, he did not need the Black vote or any other minorities to be real about it. Trump proved that all he needs is a bunch of pissed off White people, that feel like Obama was the worst thing that happened to White America.
Hillary Clinton loss the 2016, election because she was not able to click with Black people. Joe Biden has been put on the hot seat for his vote on busing in the '70s. Mayor Pete Buttigieg made an appearance at "Essence Festival" where he spoke on many issues concerning the Black Community. Mayor Pete Buttigieg is still trying to recover from the backlash coming from the Black community after a police officer shot a Black man without having his body cam on.
It has become clear that Republican candidates don't need the Black vote but the Democrats not only need the Black vote but they live and die by it.
Presidential Candidate Pete Buttigieg faces issues in the Black community after a White police officer shot and killed a Black man that was allegedly holding a knife but the police officers body camera was not on so no one can verify if the person killed actually had a knife or not. Black people were in an uproar last week. Mayor Buttigeg was interrupted while speaking at a forum by angry citizens who some yelling that there is racist police officer in the department.
“ We have tried but not succeeded in bringing diversity into our police department and we need help.” Mayor Pete Buttigeg said.
The Mayor's statement was met with mixed reaction by the mostly Black crowd at the forum. The people voicing their concerns were very matter of fact about there being racists in the city's police department while Mayor Buttigieg seems to suggest that the racists need to be sought out.
“If anyone that is on patrol shown to be a racist or to do something racist in a way that is substantiated, then it will be his last day on the street.” - Mayor Buttigieg.
The timing of this is not good for the 2020 Presidential hopeful who has been seen as a pretty squeaky clean candidate up until now.
The Black Lives Matter chapter in Dayton Ohio is scheduled to hold a rally on Saturday, May 25. Unfortunately for them, they will be met with resistance as the hate group called the Honorable Sacred Knights, which is affiliated with the KKK in Indiana, will also be there to have a rally.
Black Lives Matter purposely scheduled their rally on this day to counter the KKK’s rally which already scheduled for May 25.
Carlos Buford, the organizer of the BLM chapter released a statement, explaining the reason for holding the rally on the same day as the KKK’s rally.
“Our Black community is facing astronomical levels of systemic racism and the launch of Black Lives Matter Dayton would like to be that bridge of hope for Black citizens by focusing on challenging laws and policies that keep Black people and communities oppressed and terrorized by police brutality,” Buford wrote on the group’s GoFundMepage.
Some people in the Dayton area fear that the event could turn into a powder keg.
The two sides may clash on this day in a way that is similar to Charlottesville.
As it was admitted by a KKK member, White supremacist organizations have their members everywhere in America. The KKK member gleefully stated that there KKK members in politics, some of them are Judges, some of them are lawyers but the main thing that stuck out was how happy he was to admit that a lot of them are in law enforcement.
