Where are all the “It Gets Better” videos aimed at addressing the epidemic of bullying of Black youth by police?
A Bronx teen said two cops roughed him up when he made a quip after one of them stepped in a pile of dog doo.
… “It smells like doo-doo,” he remembers saying and then immediately regretting when he saw a uniformed cop scraping his shoe clean. At that point, he said other officers in an unmarked van nearby scolded him for making a joke, then handcuffed him and took him to the 46th Precinct.
He said two of the cops followed him when he was released after getting a disorderly conduct summons and led him into an alley. One punched him in the right ear, the other in the forehead, he said.
Davis said he fell and hit his head on a brick wall during the 30-second attack. “I thought I was going to die,” he said.
Wooowwww. And yea, their are no “it get’s better” videos for these young black youth because people rarely care that they are being treated in this manner. And probably won’t until the cops start doing it to tons of white kids.
So… do massively insecure, power-hungry, violent assholes just flock to law enforcement or do those qualities develop later?

“Second, it is a good idea to arrive at the restaurant with all those with whom you are going to dine. Like many restaurants, and particularly those with scenes attached to them that are as vibrant as the Dutch’s, the chance that a host will seat an incomplete party is very small. This is as annoying as it ever was, but in an environment so exciting and brash it is yucky to be left on the sidelines, checking your watch, thinking, as Lil B has, “I hate myself.”—Sam Sifton, writing about reviewing The Dutch, specifically their seating policy, makes a strange, strange reference.
