Banks, I don't know where in nyc you were

Brownsville... Seth Low projects on the corner of Belmont and Christopher. I also lived in Bushwick on Halsey and Wilson. I've had plenty of run in with cops and they were always positive because I complied and kept a positive attitude. Windows down because tints, hands on steering wheel, call out every move before I make it and don't admit to anything. A lot of times they cut me loose without a ticket, even though I deserved it.

People here have stated the opinion that because they had criminal records, theyre better off dead

Nobody said that. You stated that Rittenhouse shot unarmed Black protestors. You were corrected.

He started deleting my comments & monitoring my comments before he allowed them to be posted.

That's common. I was posting here for a few years before I got past moderator monitoring. A bunch of my comments weren't approved. Is what it is. I'm sure there were reasons for it, I don't take any of it personal.

Lastly, that picture I posted isn't a meme, it's from the Washington post article about the case.

I didn't say it was. I said a picture can say anything you want it to. That's the history of memes.

I also have a criminal record but I shouldn't have to die because I feel strongly about racism & police brutality.

I think most people share your feelings on police brutality and racism. Nobody said you should die. Idk where you're getting this from. You really need to stop looking at your life through the lens of a victim. It's detrimental to your life and relationships.

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

I told Brett he was co-opting the *I can't breathe* slogan for his grand plan

Please explain what my "grand plan" is and how I co-opted "I can't breathe" to make it happen.

Was I successful?

What's wrong with calling looters animals? Of course they are animals. And by the way, just as any other crime, looting does not have a color.

Quote from Brett Aquila:

The People United Against Tyranny

Please take a step back and understand the big picture. Then, let's continue this fight together.

Today's protests aren't just about racism. It's far more than that.

Today's protests are about the tyranny people have faced from governments all over the world, including ours.

This lockdown was unconstitutional and unjust. They stomped on the Constitution by taking away our rights and our freedoms. They've devastated our economy. They've censored our information. They've treated us like little children who are incapable of making decisions for ourselves or controlling our own fate.

Each and every one of us deserves the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness on our own terms. We must make our own choices.

Our Government must be reminded that they operate with our permission on our terms, not the other way around.

Do not let the government or the media divide us. This is not black vs white, man vs woman, gay vs straight, or Christian vs Muslim. This is THE PEOPLE unified as one against tyranny.

They told us "We're all in this together" - Damn right we are. We, THE PEOPLE, are all in this together. We must never again let our Government choke us out. Now we all know what it feels like when we can't breathe.

Never again will we allow our government to box us up like rats.

Let's keep it peaceful, but be loud and be bold. We must be heard. Let's stay united. Let's make sure this never happens again.

I’m curious Bklyn Dreams since you didn’t seem to know anything about the Rittenhouse trial are you aware than that George Floyd said he couldn’t breath before he was even on the ground? I bet a lot of people don’t know that. The drugs in his system greatly effected his respiratory system.

Yes, this right here. Although I know you won't, Bklyn Dreams, this sums up a lot of what holds you back from succeeding in life. You yourself have admittedly been involved in criminal activity therefore all of your interactions with police have been as a victim because you were at risk of being arrestedfor your actions. You were not the victim, you were the criminal. You always see things based on that victim mentality. Just as you saw Kyle Rittenhouse as the evil white supremacist out looking to murder black folk. You had him arrested, tried and convicted of shooting 3 black guys without so much as a thread of facts, you even got the race of those that he shot wrong. You see those he shot as the victims because you more closely relate to them as they were also criminals. It didn't matter that they were attacking him because that's what you would have done also, hell, it didn't even matter that they weren't black. Facts don't seem to matter to you and when someone calls you on your wrongful facts you get defensive and bring race into it. Nobody has said anything about you that you haven't already admitted about yourself but you still can't see past he victimhood mentality.

We all dislike racism and police brutality however as a law abiding citizen I tend not to agree with the criminals that are fighting with police, trying to take their weapons or throwing blows. If I were a criminal it might be different. I must say though, the chomo? The world is a much better place without him in it. Are there some bad police? Sure but there are much much more bad citizens then police.

As for as some of the segments about the statistics of blacks committing crime based on geography? I call BS. Just because they tend to commit more crime in their neighborhood area doesn't mean crap. They have feet and cars, they can move around and if they are willing to randomly shoot someone on their block, they are just as open to shooting someone 100 miles away. If you want to know why young black males are profiled or viewed with caution, think about it like this, the #1 cause of death for a black male between 14 and 35 is homicide..at the hands of another black male. That age range, black males make up about 4 or 5 percent of the population but commit over half of ALL murders in this country. If you had a room of 100 random people made up by their representative percentage of the population there would be 13 black people. Those 13 or a percentage of them, are responsible for over half of all murders and over half of all violent crimes. That is some seriously out of what amounts of violent, murderous crimes. Most black people like to pretend it isn't happening because they would have to admit there is a serious problem with their community, white people won't mention it because they don't want to be labeled as racists. Keep in mind I am not being racist in any way shape or form, just pointing out facts. The problem isn't with all black or brown people as most of them are good, honest people just trying to get by. The issue, IMHO is with gangs and gang culture. THAT is the biggest threat to America, even more than terrorism. Its basically the equivalent of a few bad apples ruin it for everyone. I really don't know what more to say as I'm sure you will read this and think I'm attacking you personally and that everything I've stated is wrong (although deep down inside you know I'm right) .

Something to consider regarding "I can't breathe."

You're the one who decides what's valid or isn't. You delete posts before others have a chance to offers their views. My problem with that quote was & still is that you took the BLM slogan and coopted it to fit your narrative. Your beef was with the govt response to a pandemic that affected your business model & your bottom line. Your use of I can't breathe had nothing to do with police brutality. Your wallet was being oppressed.

You've lost a great deal of very informed contributors because of your arbitrary use of the delete option. It's your site, have at it.
