Fix It Jesus! Mother Posts Facebook Video of Herself Brutally Beating Teen Daughter
One Georgia mother has come under fire for posting a video of her beating her daughter, Nia Green. No, the beating wasn’t an act of self-defense, but a way to “teach” her daughter not to be a “thot” (an abbreviation for “that h*e over there).
According to Inquistr, Shanavia Miller was upset when her 16-year-old daughter posted a picture of herself and her boyfriend wearing only a towel. Now, granted, any parent would be upset, but Miller’s response was to take over her daughter’s Facebook page and livestream the attack.
“You wanna hide this boy in my f*cking house,” Miller yells before striking Nia. The attack, which consisted of the teen being punched in the face, stomach, and other body parts while being called a “thot,” was seen by 4,000 people. Some viewers called the Division of Family and Children Services, and asking for the police to get involved, Inquistr noted. It’s unknown if any of the authorities intervened.
After the attack, Miller later posted on social media: “I love my daughter with all my heart, [and she] is not going to disrespect me or herself for nobody. Ain’t nothing [changed], [she’s] still my baby. Lesson learned.”
Girl, no. We understand not wanting your child to be sexually active at a young age and air out her business on social media, but brutality and humiliation aren’t the answer. Our children are not our property, they are human beings who deserve much better than abuse.
Sigh … Iowa Football Player Mistaken For Bank Robber While Playing Pokémon Go
University of Iowa’s defensive lineman Faith Ekakitie was held at gun point by Iowa City police officers after they mistook him for a man suspected of robbing a bank.
“My pockets were checked, my backpack was opened up and searched carefully, and I was asked to lift up my shirt while they searched my waistband,” Ekakitie wrote.
“Not once did they identify themselves to me as Iowa City Police officers, but with four gun barrels staring me in the face, I wouldn’t dare question the authority of the men and woman in front of me. This is what happened from my point of view,” he added.
So what happened?
The Iowa police recently told the Des Moines Register that they had received a phone call saying the suspect was “a large black male, wearing all black, with something on the top of his head (and the suspect is armed).” Apparently to them, Ekakitie fit this description. But, as they approached the football player, he had on his headphones and didn’t hear the officers request, which led to the officers drawing their weapons, Huff Po noted.
Thankfully, this situation cleared itself up with Ekakitie writing that he is “lucky to be alive.”
“Misunderstandings happen all the time and just like that things can go south very quickly,” he said.
Now we gotta be cautious playing Pokémon Go, too? Dis tew much.
White Mayor Refuses To Take Down Black Lives Matter Sign From City Hall
A Massachusetts mayor has refused to remove a Black Lives Matter banner from the City Hall despite being asked by the local police union, USA Today reported.
The banner has been hanging from Somerville’s City Hall building since August 2015. In a recent letter, Michael McGrath, the police union’s president, wrote to Mayor Joseph Curtatone, saying, “It is inconceivable to us as it is demoralizing that our city would propagate its support for this movement while standing silent over the seemingly daily protest assassinations of innocent police officers around the country.”
However, in the wake of the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, Curtatone isn’t trying to hear any of that noise:
In a statement responding to the police union’s letter, Curtatone wrote, “My unwavering support for our police officers does not and cannot preempt our commitment addressing systemic racism in our nation.”
He added, “The City of Somerville stands against all violence and all injustice, which is why a Black Lives Matter banner hangs at City Hall and why a banner in honor of the slain officers is hanging at Somerville Police Headquarters where it would provide the most moral support to our officers — both on my order.”
