Black Man Profiled in Chicago Walgreens

Just last week we shared video footage of a Black man in West Covina California being falsely accused in a Walgreens and this week a different man had almost the exact same thing happen to him at a Walgreens in Chicago. The man, Facebook user, Vinnie Dewayne, shared the video from his page stating that he was at the Walgreens that he frequents in his neighborhood to purchase food for his cat and travel items for an upcoming trip. Vinnie, obviously and justifiably frustrated with being confronted by police, questioned…

Video: Griffin Georgia Police Attack Female High School Student as She Waits for The School Bus

This incident occurred at Griffin High School on Thursday November 5th and involves Assistant Principal Dr. Douglas Wheeler, GPD Cpl. Chris Webb and Griffin Police Department.

I can’t confirm it but he certainly did not display any compassion nor the restraint one would…
