Mugshots that show how US police handle black and white culprits

These mugshots above show how police allegedly handled two culprits. The black guy, Stephen Martese (you can see the injury on his forehead) was arrested for a fake ID while the other red head is James Eagan Holmes, who killed 12 people during a mass shooting at a movie theatre in Colorado in July 2012. 

Blacks in America are outraged that Martese was allegedly manhandled by police over a fake ID and are calling for proper investigation into his arrest.

No doubt racism is rife over there, more reason we should help build our nation to avoid running to other countries and being victims of such cruel treatment.

Discrimination has been as old as the idea of seperating white clothes from the black ones during laundry.I'm not under the illusion or delusion that it's gonna stop anytime soon.Quite pathetic!

Linda in ur caption u used "while" instead of "white".

Dis is wht I call modern day slavery. D discrimination in dealing wit d black and whites in their custody is not only biased but criminal offense. I wonder wht d world is turning into?

I thought it was only in Nigeria we hear cases of police officer's manhandling suspects or those charged into their custody. Wonders shall never end.

Linda it's not just blacks, the white students were also protesting against the use of force by these cops. The students in uva are outraged by the incident

The Igbos in Nigeria are believed to love money SO much they will do ANYTHING to get it, hence when people of other tribe and (indeed other Igbos) deal with them in matters concerning money, they tread softly. Because of the BH Scourge in Nigeria, people of other religions look at Muslims with scorn and anger.
What is my point? It is simply the fact that over the fact the black people/community have continued to reinforce the belief that they are gun totting criminals, it has being portrayed in their movies and in their songs.
Yes what these cops do seem inhumane but would you approach a lion without a weapon even if it has being house trained? NO!!!
Slavery and racism was bad, but the world is changing and those wounds are beginning to heal, so black Americans should stop acting out and start acting right!
Who wants to bet that this kid talked back at the cops or resisted arrest?!!

Cops are humans and they get angry, scared and frustrated too.

Shutup, Ary. You think the guy who went to a movie theater and massacred 12 people, injuring 70 didn't give the cops a reason to be angry but a kid with a fake 7D did? Your brain and reasoning are beyond faulty. Get them back before writing nonsense on this blog again. Moron.

Anonymous said...

That is such an unfair comparison. Do we know the circumstances of the arrest? The nature of defiance/resistance dictates the tone.

Ary, you should be informed before jumping in to defend a monster versus an innocent college student. The crap you describe of black Americans in movies doesn't compare to the horrors James Holmes inflicted in real life. In the months leading up to the massacre, he purchased 6,350 rounds of ammunition to carry out his plans. On the fateful day, he booby trapped his apartment with explosives and then set off gas and smoke cannisters in the theater to carry out his murderous intentions. Get informed before coming here to vomit trash. Movies made by whites based on stereotypes they've created in media of blacks are laughable illusions compared to the mayhem a monster like James Holmes committed in real time that's inflicted immeasurable harm on at least 82 people and their families.

Yes 95% of them are. Worst are English people as they are covert racists. I don't know what it would take for them to change but one thing for sure is that black people should help themselves and unite against this.

So true. Tribalism makes me sick. We can't even look at our similarities instead we start dividing ourselves even more. One day I pray it will end.

Racism is a crime against humanity, Tribalism is a crime against one's kinsmen. Either acts should be discouraged
