Cop Mistakes Black Oakland Firefighter For Burglar, Draws Weapon On Man And His Kids

I guess this black firefighter isn’t going to need to have the talk with his kids, since they got to experience firsthand what it’s like for cops to make a snap decision about you based on race.

CBS KPIX5:

It was 10:45 p.m., after a recent Raiders game. Veteran firefighter Keith Jones and his two sons, ages 9 and 12, were walking back to their SUV at Station 29. A fire crew responding to an emergency had forgotten to close the garage door. Jones went in to make sure everything was secure.

As Jones walked out, he said a police officer, responding to a possible burglary in progress, yelled “Don’t move, put your hands up.”

“And his hand is on his gun. He was crouched, he was low, and he was basically in a shooting stance,” Jones said.

Jones complied, but noticed his 9-year-old son Trevon was starting to cry. The officer saw the two kids first and had already told them to raise their hands.

Jones said he told the officer that he was an Oakland firefighter, that he worked at the station and that they were his kids. He asked the officer to allow his kids to lower their hands and tell them everything is OK. Jones said the officer told them to keep their hands up and not to move.

The firefighter said this lasted for a few minutes.

“I’m pretty much thinking he’s going to pretty much shoot me,” Jones said.

“I was thinking is he going to shoot my dad the whole time,” said 12-year-old Keith Jones II.

“I was getting ready about to cry. My hands started to get tired, but I kept them up,” said 9-year-old Trevon Jones.

Black people in general get no respect by white authority because we’re automatically every single negative stereotype that white America has thrust upon us all at once. And this goes double for our sons and daughters.

"black people in general." "every single negative stereotype that white america has thrust upon us all at once." Hard words but, bitch, thats what every minority experienced.

The head of a company survived 9/11 because
His son started kindergarten.

Another fellow was alive because it was
His turn to bring donuts.

One woman was late because her
Alarm clock didn’t go off in time.

One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike
Because of an auto accident.

One of them
Missed his bus.

One spilled food on her clothes and had to take
Time to change.

One’s
Car wouldn’t start.

One couldn’t
Get a taxi.

The one that struck me was the man
Who put on a new pair of shoes that morning,
Took the various means to get to work but before.
He got there, he developed a blister on his foot.
He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid.
That is why he is alive today..

Now when I am
Stuck in traffic,
Miss an elevator,
Turn back to answer a ringing telephone…
All the little things that annoy me,
I think to myself,

This is exactly where
I’m meant to be
At this very moment

Women are underrepresented in Congress in more ways than one. Women make up nearly 51 percent of the U.S. population; of the 435 voting members of the House, just over 18 percent are women; in the Senate, the figure is 20 percent.

While there has in the past been anecdotal evidence of the predominance of male voices addressing members of Congress, the data enables us to show that this is a systemic phenomenon. The disparity in the number of male and female witnesses is significant because so much of the work of Congress goes on in committees and subcommittees.

Yes. But there is an overwhelming majority of women involved in the PTA. I guess women figured they’d rather take care of children than clean up the shit of big babies.
