Autopsy Shows Michael Brown Was Struck at Least 6 Times

Autopsy Shows Michael Brown Was Struck at Least 6 Times | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it


"A private, family-requested autopsy shows that Michael Brown was shot at least six timestwice in the head — with all of the bullets striking him in the front."

...

“The sheer number of bullets and the way they were scattered all over his body showed this police officer had a brazen disregard for the very people he was supposed to protect in that community,” Mr. Crump said. “We want to make sure people understand what this case is about: This case is about a police officer executing a young unarmed man in broad daylight.

‘You’re not supposed to shoot so many times,’ said Dr. Baden

Better Treatment of Trans Women by Philly Police Could Have Averted Brutal Murder, Says Activist

Better Treatment of Trans Women by Philly Police Could Have Averted Brutal Murder, Says Activist | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

"We always seemed to really click together, personality-wise," Aamina Morrison says of Diamond Williams, whom she first met in a Philadelphia LGBT youth group 12 years ago. “Like the issues of oppression we shared or things that came up in her own transition. She didn't realize those little things she did for me right there helped me see the possibility for who I am today."

Williams was brutally murdered last month, her body dismembered and thrown in a field. A 43-year-old Philadelphia man named Charles Sargent, who has previously been charged with rape and aggravated assault, confessed to the crime and led the police to Williams's remains. He will be tried for murder.

Morrison is now co-director of the peer-led Trans-Health Information Project, which, along with other LGBTQ and social justice groups in Philadelphia, is demanding justice for Williams. They believe Williams was targeted because she was transgender and working in the sex trade. Bringing Sargent to trial isn’t enough, they say; they want changes to how police and the media respond to violence against members of the transgender community.

Morrison has her own reason to believe that if Philadelphia police treated transgender victims of violence better, the friend she remembers from her youth group would still be alive. She says that when she saw Sargent’s photograph in the press after his confession, “it immediately took me back to an incident I had with him."

This is not the first time a person visiting from another country has been affected by U.S. gun violence. 

 

Teens with no guidance and no responsibilities I am always suspicious of. This is not the first time a group of teens had used their free time for evil. 

 

1% of people are psychopaths. Was this a group of three psychopaths? Or another manifestation of the U.S. culture of violence?

No, Texas Law Does Not Say You Can Shoot an Escort Who Refuses to Have Sex

No, Texas Law Does Not Say You Can Shoot an Escort Who Refuses to Have Sex | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

A misreading of the verdict in an upsetting Texas case has gone viral, since Gawker claimed: “Texas Says It's OK to Shoot an Escort If She Won't Have Sex With You.” Texas law does not say that, and the jury didn’t either. This story looks very different depending on if you are looking at the law or the reporting.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

It's is horrible & shocking enough, without the "salcious sex worker" angle.

Pre-med Univ. of South Florida student charged with first degree murder for tricking girlfriend into taking abortion pill

Pre-med Univ. of South Florida student  charged with first degree murder for tricking girlfriend into taking abortion pill | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

Genevieve Valle's curator insight, May 16, 2013 3:56 PM

Another horrendous crime out of Florida... This pre-med student, John Welden, sent his pregnant girlfriend to see his OB/GYN father. Welden told his girlfriend that his father diagnosed her with an infection requiring her to take antibiotics. Welden swapped the anibiotic pill for Cytotec, the abortion pill. He instructed his girlfriend to take the "antibiotics" three times a day for a week. His girlfriend only learned about the abortion pills when she showed up to the emergency room a week later, having aborted the pregnancy. Welden's girlfriend was six weeks pregnant and communicated her intent to carry the pregnancy to term to all of her friends and family. Federal authorities have since charged 28-year-old Welden with first degree murder and tampering. Normally, a 6 week old fetus would not be considered viable, but federal law provides otherwise. Under the Unborn Victims of Violence Act of 2004 (18 USC 1841), an "unborn child" is defined as “member of the species homo sapiens, at any stage of development, who is carried in the womb.” The Act further provides that if an unborn child is killed during the commission of a federal crime, it will constitute murder. Here, Welden's tampering with his girlfriend's prescription (a federal crime) allows authorities to tack on a first degree murder charge. Welden faces life in prison for his crimes. It is not clear what role, if any, his OB/GYN father played in the commission of these crimes.
