Enforcement Officials Beat & Kidnap a 12-yo Black Girl in Front of her Residence, Claiming She Was a Prostitute
"When her mother and father came outside after hearing her cries for help she was desperately holding a tree with one arm while plainclothes officers were beating her in the head, neck and throat.
Dymond Milburn, now 20-years-old, was an honor student attending advanced classes at Austin Middle School, when her life would be forever scarred by Galveston police.”
None of the enforcement officials who terrorized and beat Milburn were penalized.

I remember this. I REMEMBER THIS. They claimed they thought she was a prostitute cause she was wearing shorts. In summer. In Texas.
I remember this.

*university voice* unfortunately… we have too much money… so we have to raise tuition so we can build a place to keep all the other money in… so sorry unavoidable

Listen we can’t afford to pay janitors a fair wage to clean the toilets but look at this new multi billion dollar business school building.

to all the carnists who say going vegan is “too expensive:” i just got back from scavenging the dumpsters behind whole foods and found
