Neighborhood Good Samaritans helped exhausted police officers handcuff a suspect who was resisting arrest.

Cellphone video of the incident shows a cop kneeling on the back of a suspect who refuses to be taken into custody.

As the crowd grows agitated, the cop defused the situation by asking the bystanders for a little help: "Y'all wanna help out?"

After considering the officer's request, several bystanders stopped forward to talk the suspect into giving himself up. But the young man refused to cooperate.

One of the bystanders even offered to handcuff the suspect himself. "I just don't want you to get hurt. I don't want you to get hurt man," he said.

Cops all over the country are fearful of losing their jobs after George Floyd was killed by a former officer who kneeled on his neck for nearly 9 minutes in Minneapolis in May.

A Miami-Dade County police officer was relieved of duty after he was caught on camera punching a Black woman during a heated encounter at Miami International Airport.

Antonio Clemente Rodriguez initially claimed the woman "headbutted" him before he subdued her and took her into custody. The charge and the woman's identity are unknown.

According to police, the woman complained loudly that she missed her flight and a ticket agent called police.

The video, which was uploaded to Facebook on Wednesday, shows a Black woman arguing with a masked cop. She then stepped into his personal space and said, "You acting like you white when you really Black... What you want to do?"

Rodriguez, who is mixed with Black and Puerto Rican, is seen punching the woman and restraining her on police body cam.
 

The president of the Miami-Dade County Police Benevolent Association defended Rodriguez in a statement. He said the woman was "clearly" the aggressor, and Rodriguez was merely defending himself when he struck her with an "open hand slap," which is referred to as a "diversionary strike".

"Clearly she was the aggressor. She was being asked to leave. She's being belligerent and she pushes her face right into his face," PBA President Steadman Stahl told the Miami Herald.

But after carefully reviewing the video, county officials condemned the officer's actions.

"I am shocked and angered by a body cam video that I just saw involving one of our officers," Miami-Dade police Director Alfredo Ramirez said in a statement on Twitter.

"I've immediately initiated an investigation and ordered that the involved officers be relieved of duty."

"This is appalling," Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Giminez tweeted on Wednesday.

"It's excessive use of force and unnecessary. That's NOT what our @MiamiDadePD are trained to do. @MDPD_Director Ramirez has ordered the officer relieved of duty & investigation is underway. This is why I instituted body cameras & MDPD is reviewing all footage."

A viral video shows the moment when two Tampa police officers forcibly separated an emotionally disturbed mother from her 5 children.

The incident occurred on Saturday, June 27, on a downtown Tampa street. The woman and her 5 barefoot children were forcibly separated by the police as she clung to a toddler.

One of the officers held the woman against a fence as the other officer held another toddler while preventing the woman's sons from snatching their sister.

A bystander recorded a video that went viral on social media over the weekend. The Tampa police addressed the incident in a tweet.

"This afternoon around 12:40 p.m. near Ashley Dr. and Tyler St. in downtown Tampa, The Tampa Police Department responded to a call of a mother, in apparent distress walking in the street with her 5 children barefoot. One of our officers approached the mother offering to help,” the department tweeted.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, the mother was putting her barefoot children at risk.

"Officers intervened when the mother attempted to walk on the interstate out of concern for the safety of her and her children. Officers attempted to detain the mother for her safety after her repeated attempts to enter the interstate. While doing so, the children were not wanting to be separated from their mother. Officers were trying to prevent the children from being harmed while trying to detain the mother."

The mother was not arrested. She was transported to a hospital to undergo a psychological evaluation. The children were also taken to the hospital to be with their mother.

President Trump deleted a tweet that contained a video of a white man yelling "white power". But the White House stated the president didn't hear what the man yelled.

The video, which Trump retweeted on Sunday morning, shows two groups of senior citizens yelling at each other during a pro-Trump parade at a retirement community in Florida.

In the viral video, a pro-Trump supporter riding in a golf cart yelled "White power" in a mocking tone at an anti-Trump protester.

Trump captioned the video, "Thank you to the great people of The Villages. The Radical Left Do Nothing Democrats will Fall in the Fall. Corrupt Joe is shot. See you soon!!!"

Trump also took aim at Democratic nominee Joe Biden's mental status, tweeting that Biden is "shot", meaning he is mentally unfit.

Many believe Biden suffers from senile dementia.

The president deleted the tweet Sunday morning on the advice of his White House advisors.

The White House was adamant that the president didn't see or hear the language used by his supporter.

Another possibility is that Trump did hear what the man yelled - and he retweeted the video anyway to troll his haters.

An 18-year-old has been charged in the "unprovoked" attack on a Macy's store manager in Flint Township, Michigan last weekend.

The Genesee County prosecutor announced the assault charge against Damire Palmer on Friday.

According to prosecutor David Leyton, Palmer assaulted the 50-year-old store manager in an unprovoked attack in the men's clothing department.

The incident happened at a Macy's store in Genesee Valley Center on June 15. The attack was captured on cellphone video by aspiring rapper FT Quay, who uploaded it to Facebook on Jun 15.

Surveillance video shows Palmer walking around the store before punching the manager in the head.

According to FT Quay, Palmer attacked the manager for using the N-word. But Leyton said there is no evidence the manager used a racial slur in the attack.

"This was an unprovoked attack on a Macy's employee," said Prosecutor Leyton. "We don't believe any racial slur was made by the store manager and even if there had been, it does not condone nor justify the assault by Mr. Palmer."

Leyton said there was not enough evidence to support a hate crime charge against Palmer.

"I know a lot of people are calling this a hate crime but, under the laws of Michigan, the evidence simply does not support that charge," he said.

Palmer, who is not yet in police custody, faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.

Rapper Boosie Badazz had some choice words for Black people who were queued in line outside a Gucci store.

In a livestream video, Boosie yelled, "Gucci don't like Black people. I don't know why y'all in that line!"

Walking swiftly away, Boosie continued, "Y'all stupid as a f***. Gucci don't like black people. Y'all still in the line. Y'all stupid as a MF. Y'all stupid as a MF. All y'all."

Boosie, Tip "T.I." Harris, and other rappers called on Black people to boycott the French luxury retailer for selling what they believed was a "racist sweater."

The black balaclava sweater, which retailed for $890, appeared to mimic blackface.

Gucci removed the sweater from stores and issued an apology in 2019.

A racist employee at a restaurant was shamed by Tameka "Tiny" Harris for discriminating against a Black boy for wearing a t-shirt and shorts.

In a video re-posted by Tameka, a white restaurant employee tells a Black woman she can't eat in the establishment because her minor son is not in compliance with the dress code.

The woman points out a white boy - about the same age as her son - who is also wearing a t-shirt and shorts with white sneakers.

The employee says tennis shoes are allowed but not an athletic shirt or shorts.

"Are you telling me the little boy who just ate here does not have on an athletic shirt?" the woman asks the employee.

The employee responds, "I'm sorry, I would love for you to come back and eat here."

Tameka captioned the video: "A bunch of B.S period!! Really [middle finger icon] this restaurant!!"

Comedian and radio host DL Hughley suffered what appeared to be a syncope spell and passed out during his standup comedy routine in Nashville, Tennessee on Friday, Jun 19.

Syncope is the medical term for fainting or a loss of consciousness. Syncope can be heart (cardiac) or neurological. It can also be caused by dehydration, orthostatic hypotension and a stroke.

The first hint of trouble came when the 57-year-old comic began slurring his words. The audience thought his slurred speech was part of the act and laughed.

Seconds later, DL slumped backwards and slid off his stool to the stage as a friend rushed to him.

It was obvious that DL lost consciousness as several people carried the limp comedian off the stage.

According to The Hollywood reporter, DL was hospitalized in stable condition with what his rep said was "exhaustion".

"He was suffering from exhaustion after all the week's work and travel, and was kept overnight at the hospital for tests under doctor's orders. He is awake and feeling better, and wishes to thank everyone for the very kind prayers and thoughts," Hughley's representative told The Hollywood Reporter.

My loyal readers know that there is no such medical diagnosis as "exhaustion". That is typically a faux condition used by celebrities when they don’t want to disclose the real ailment.

Sandrarose.com send prayers to DL for a speedy recovery.

By now you've seen the horrifying viral video that shows a young Black male bashing a Black woman in her face with a skateboard, knocking her out.

After laying her out, the guy strutted away, while his boys encouraged him.

Don't expect the news media to cover this story. It's just a Black man treating a Black woman like her life doesn't matter.

The video is dark and blurry. But the Internet believe they found the guy. I won't name him. According to web sleuths, the guy is an up-and-coming rapper and a youth counselor (!).

IG bloggers say he savagely hit the woman with his skateboard because she rejected his advances.

I had a long speech written about the lack of protests decrying violence against Black women. But I deleted it.

Not one Black blog or media outlet wrote a post about this video. Not one. And that's a shame.

Tip "T.I." Harris had a strong reaction to a viral video that shows a Clayton County police officer holding 5 Black teens at gunpoint.

The incident happened on Monday night in Clayton County, Georgia after police received a 911 call about a group of teenagers who allegedly robbed a convenience store while waving a gun.

Clayton PD released audio of the 911 call to the local news media. In the 911 call, the clerk tells the dispatcher the boys appeared to be fighting in the parking lot.

According to 11 Alive News, an officer arrived within minutes and was told the direction that the boys ran in.

Body camera footage shows a group of Black teens on foot. He got out of his police cruiser and pointed his service weapon at them.

"Stop! All of y'all stop! Get your hands up! Up! Walk toward me," he shouted at the teens. "Get your hands up or you're going to get hurt... Just relax. Please, I don't want to hurt any of y'all."

The incident was captured on cellphone video and quickly went viral.

Someone is heard saying, "Please, sir. They kids. Don't shoot."

"Why you got a gun out?" another person shouted.

"Because I'm being safe," the officer responded.

When backup units arrived, an officer searched the boys and recovered a BB gun from one of them.

T.I. was irate after viewing the video on Tuesday.

"Why don't we ever see little white kids being held at gunpoint?" the "ASAP" rapper asked.

Other activists and community leaders called for the cop's immediate termination.

A protest march is scheduled for Wednesday.

A video recorded by an emotionally troubled police officer has gone viral online. The female officer -- who has been dubbed "Officer Karen" on social media -- appears to meltdown in a McDonald's drive thru after not receiving an English muffin with her order.

The Caucasian officer said she pulled into a McDonald's drive-thru after working a long shift. The hungry officer ordered an English muffin meal and a cup of coffee.

She said an employee asked her to pull forward and wait for her order. An employee then came out with the cup of coffee, but, apparently, the muffin wasn't ready.

Through tears, the officer said she told the employee to forget about the muffin because she was afraid an employee would put something in her food.

There have been many reports of fast food workers lacing police orders with non-edible items or flat out refusing to serve the police.

Some social media users sympathized with the officer. They recounted their own trips to McDonald's that ended badly when a food item was left off their order. But none could recall crying over the missing item.

Hopefully the officer will be placed on desk duty while she seeks therapy for her apparent emotional problems.
