AFRICANGLOBE - An Atlanta cop was caught on video savagely beating a compliant teen boy to the point of knocking him out and hospitalization. He's now going to prison. Police officers beat people on video, a lot. And, more often than not, the officers will keep their jobs in spite of video evidence of the attack. However, an attack on a teenager by an Atlanta cop was so egregious that it did, in fact, cost him his job. And now, it is costing him his freedom.
AFRICANGLOBE - One of the best ways to shut people up about their simplistic views on Africa is to point out these great African empires. Africa tends to be depicted, as a whole, as backward and poverty-stricken. The purveyors and the believers of this image, however, forget some pertinent facts about African empires who had mighty effects on the world.
AFRICANGLOBE - A massive militarized manhunt that resulted in a lock down of an entire area due to a sniper shooting a deputy turned out to be based entirely on one cop's lie. The country watched on in horror last week after news stations across America ran the story of how Los Angeles Sheriff’s Deputy Angel Reinosa was shot in the shoulder by a sniper as he walked from his patrol car into the station. A massive manhunt ensued as heavily armed deputies in military attire set up a perimeter and locked down the area. For days the police state ran rampant as officers looked for the shooter. But they would never find him—because the entire story that led to the militarized lock down of the town, was a lie.
AFRICANGLOBE - Another summer in America and another mass shooting has occurred. The are no bright points to this besides there wasn’t a school shooting since school wasn’t open across the country yet and the loss of life wasn’t greater. People died in the El Paso and Dayton shootings over the weekend of 8/3 and 8/4. The thing is, we’re already going through the motions of a mass shooting in America.
