and even though it wasn’t a planned job…it was an emergency, they can tow it and force you to pay $197 to get it out of the tow yard.
OH and because it was towed, by law they also have to give you a ticket…because apparently even though it was an emergency, no signs were up, your car can ‘t get towed without a ticket.
AND apparently its okay that the police officers who talked to you 1. weren’t sure at first why they towed your car 2.then claimed they put up posts throughout the neighborhood (they didn’t and I took video and pictures) 3. get mad when you call them a liar…even though they are lying 4. claim they DID put up notices…then claim they didn’t….claim I should express my concerns to the PD, then the department of public works, traffic department and then finally they all agreed that it was actually between me and PSEG. That I couldn’t make a report through them, I would just have to take PSEG to court.
THEN it is apparently okay that a cop got mad when I was explaining what happened to my friend on the phone, its okay for that cop to walk ALL THE UP THE STREET to me to tell me that I was a liar, that he does not appreciate me claiming all of them are lying (oh the kicker, at one point they told me I was actually towed because I was parked on a part of the street that wasn’t actually a spot…um no assholes..wrong. it IS a spot), and that I need to learn procedure before I made false claims. I know procedure. And while this dude was explaining procedure to me, I caught him contradicting himself three or four times. Four times he said they put them up and then that they didn’t that it was PSEG. AGAIN THERE WERE NO SIGNS. ONLY ON THE TWO CONES THEY PUT UP ON THE SIDEWALK TODAY AFTER THEY TOWED MY CAR.
I had to make a complaint at the Mayor’s Office. I’m not letting this go.
Distressing Video Captures EXACTLY How Cops Treat Black People
I had to reblog this again because it just reduced me to tears.
As most of you know, I am an attorney. And I am an attorney licensed in Minnesota. This is the state where I took an oath last year to uphold state and federal laws and to protect the rights of the citizens.
It PAINS me to see this. To see these unjust cops who I for all intents & purposes, have to stand along side. When they are abusing EVERY SINGLE OUNCE of POWER. Minneapolis/St. Paul have BEEN a war zone. I’m ashamed. I’m embarrassed.
Not all officers are bad. Please don’t let that be the take away. But police brutality is VERY FUCKING REAL.
Watch this. If this doesn’t move you, if this doesn’t make you cry out in agony and want to change the world, I don’t know what will.
too distressing. the cries of my people 💔
Trigger warning for police brutality and antiblackness
Fucking cops. That’s all I can say. How are you supposed to respect any cops??? How am I supposed to respect them. I can’t. And this is coming from someone whose parent was a cop.
astoryofdiscovery asked: I've been good. I'm in that stage of OMG is my major right for me?, but on the flip side I've been going to Hillel on a regular basis
That’s good that you’re going!! I experienced the OMG is my major right for me each year lolol! Is it too early to get an internship so you can test it out before you’re in too deep? That’s what I did.
