Art is found everywhere; you can find it in the melody of laughter, the dance of the wind, in the thrill of life, and even in the places & tasks that seem mundane, you just have to know in which places to look for it.

"The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity" - Walt Whitman

The Investigators: Dashcam video clears NJ man; Cops now indicted →

jessehimself:

Investigative Reporter Sarah Wallace obtained the dashcam tapes, and has spoken exclusively with the 30-year old DJ who was looking at years in prison.

It was quite a turnabout, all the criminal charges against Marcus Jeter have been dismissed, and two Bloomfield police officers have been indicted for falsifying reports, and one of them, for assault.

A third pleaded guilty early on to tampering. It’s all thanks to those dashcam tapes. It’s the video that prosecutors say they never saw when the pursued criminal charges against 30 year-old Marcus Jeter . In the video, his hands were in the air. He was charged with eluding police, resisting arrest and assault. One officer in the video can be seen throwing repeated punches.

This video was submitted by one of our followers who wished to remain anonymous and asked if we could post it. I could only get through a minute and a half of this white lady but I could see where this was going as soon as the video started.

TW: racism, cultural appropriation, etc.

Here is a side by side comparison of how The New York Times has profiled Michael Brown — an 18 year old black boy gunned down by police — and how they profiled Ted Bundy, one of the most prolific serial killers of all time.
