A Philadelphia social worker wants a trial after two detectives allegedly violated her civil rights by forcing her from her Southwest Philadelphia home and making her spend time in jail.

According to Philly News, social worker Nicol Newman announced Thursday morning in a news conference that she wanted a trial on her summary offense charge of disorderly conduct. The arresting officers have not been charged in the incident.
 
According to Newman, at noon on March 9, two white detectives came to her home with an arrest warrant for her son, John Newman. She told officers her son was not home and that they could not come in.
 
Newman’s attorney, Michael Coard, said the detectives had an arrest warrant but not a search warrant, so Newman refused to let them in. The woman was pulled out of her home and thrown in jail.
 
The details of the case were revealed at a Wednesday joint news conference with the NAACP. The 48-year-old Newman and her attorney met with local NAACP president Rodney Muhammad to make her case for a trial.
 
After the incident, Newman and her attorney had a brief appearance before city Trial Commissioner Marsha Floyd, but Newman rejected pleading guilty or going into a first-offender diversion program, reports Philly Magazine.
 
“Can you imagine three or four armed Black police officers going into the Northeast and dragging a law-abiding white mother [or] grandmother out of her house? Can you just imagine that?” Coard asked the audience.

Newman said Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross has began an investigation into the incident. A police spokeswoman also stated that this Internal Affairs investigation came in response to the NAACP’s planned press conference about the case.

Many local activists and supporters came to her side in response to the incident. Newman will get her trial. Floyd has set April 19 for a trial before a municipal court judge.

THE BLACK RACE IS AT WAR

FIRST WORLD WAR:  THE APPROXIMATELY 6,000 YEAR WORLD WAR ON AFRICA AND THE BLACK RACE

Original Post

If black people acted towards white people the in the ways white people act towards black people, there'd be no black people or any other people anywhere on this earth. All there'd be on the planet is dirt, trees, mountains,  polluted waters and a couple roaches. These bastards would obliterate allllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll life. There's something seriously, seriously wrong with the Dog Cousins and there's no one alive capable of setting the plight right, whatever the fuck RIGHT IS or WHERE IT IS. We ain't gonna git it. We really are dooooooooooooooooooooooooomed with these former cave inhabitants with dogs,lice  and that yummy blood puddin' as their sole companions.

I'm glad she is fighting back too.

This story paints a picture for you to see the corruption, racism, illegal acts, and violations of Black people's Constitutional and Civil Rights that has to take place in America for America to EVER have a prison population that is predominately Black, especially where women's prisons are concerned.  

It lets you see how it happens that countless Black people in America are in jails, or have been sent to prisons. or have been arrested, or come to have "criminal" records, that never should have been put in jail, or never have been sent to prison, or never should have had a "criminal record" in the first place.
