(Before It's News)




Police officers in San Francisco, California are under investigation after they were caught exchanging racist texts.

The text messages were exchanged between former Sgt. Ian Furminger and current officers Michael Robison, Noel Schwab, Rain Daugherty and Michael Celis, according to The San Francisco Chronicle.


This revelation comes on the heels of the federal prosecution and conviction of Sgt. Furminger on corruption charges.

Now, thanks to this revelation, all four officers have been reassigned… But that is far from being seriously disciplined or fired. Instead, they have just been moved to positions where they have no contact with the public. The San Francisco police officials apparently thought this was a reasonable solution… Many in the public strongly disagree.

Some of the things the officers were caught saying include the following list, compiled byAlternet from a a federal document made public last Friday:

• “We got two blacks at my boys [sic] school and they are brother and sister! There cause dad works for the school district and I am watching them like hawks.”

• In response to a text asking “Do you celebrate quanza [sic] at your school?” Furminger wrote: “Yeah we burn the cross on the field! Then we celebrate Whitemas.”


• “Its [sic] worth every penny to live here [Walnut Creek] away from the savages.”

• “Those guys are pretty stupid! Ask some dumb ass questions you would expect from a black rookie! Sorry if they are your buddies!”

• “The buffalo soldier was why the Indians Wouldnt [sic] shoot the n****rs that found for the confederate They [sic] thought they were sacred buffalo and not human.”

• “Gunther Furminger was a famous slave auctioneer.”

• “My wife has 2 friends over that don’t know each other the cool one says to me get me a drink n****r not knowing the other is married to one just happened right now LMFAO.”

• “White power.”

• In response to a text saying “n****rs should be spayed,” Furminger wrote “I saw one an hour ago with 4 kids.”

• “I am leaving it like it is, painting KKK on the sides and calling it a day!”

• “Cross burning lowers blood pressure! I did the test myself!”

• In response to a text saying “All n****rs must fucking hang,” Furminger wrote “Ask my 6 year old what he thinks about Obama.”

• In response to a text saying “Just boarded train at Mission/16th,” Furminger wrote “Ok, just watch out for BM’s” [black males].

• “I hate to tell you this but my wife friend [sic] is over with their kids and her husband is black! If [sic] is an Attorney but should I be worried?” Furminger’s friend, an SFPD officer, responded: “Get ur pocket gun. Keep it available in case the monkey returns to his roots. Its [sic] not against the law to put an animal down.” Furminger responded, “Well said!”

• In response to a text from another SFPD officer regarding the promotion of a black officer to sergeant, Furminger wrote: “Fuckin n****r.”

Think Progress notes that only 6% of  San Francisco’s population are African American, and yet they are seven times more likely than Caucasian residents to be arrested by the police.

And that's exactly what they're doing, because they think we're gorilla cousins. That's TRUTH!!!!!! They kill our babies, and they walk free as birds in trees.


The Caucasus Cave Men Mountaineers are on an African killing spree in the dis-United States of Amerigo.


I'll bet those Kopper Beater Uppers are feeling no remorse causing that  that handsome 20 year old University of Virginia honor student to receive 10 stitches in his head.  3 Caucasoid Kopper Beater Uppers, 1 mother's African son.


They never do the 1 on 1; guess they figure ole Kopperoo will get HIS ass beaten for a change, if they ever allow that.  They're probably right.  Couldn't pick cotton, can't do 1 on 1.  That's the definition of WEAKLINGS and COWARDS.

 I guess you haven't been paying attention (obviously you're excluding the black experience in San Francisco).


I can certainly see why a white person would feel that San Francisco is a place where everybody is all peace and love and let live. Yeah, right! LOL@you


case in point:


A San Francisco civil jury today ruled in favor of a white, former transit officer who fatally shot an unarmed, black man in an infamous killing captured on cellphone cameras.


The federal jury awarded no damages to the father of Oscar Grant III, killed by a single shot to the back from BART Officer Johannes Mehserle early on Jan. 1, 2009 in Oakland. *snip*




A Black man is suing the Bay Area Rapid Transit police over an August encounter that he said occurred because of racial profiling, when they took him down and arrested him because they assumed he was a harassing panhandler.


On Aug. 17, at 6:55 p.m., BART police arrested Albert James Burleson while looking for a panhandler who accosted a woman at Powell Station.


BART officers were looking for a bald Black man in a black shirt and black plants. The only part of the description of the woman’s harasser that matched Burleson was Black male.*snip*






San Francisco Cops Detain, Handcuff Men for Recording Rap Video in Public (Updated)

San Francisco Cops Detain, Handcuff Men for Recording Rap Video in Public (Updated)





San Francisco police detained a large group of black men who were doing nothing but recording a rap video in public, ordering them on their knees, handcuffing them and emptying their pockets.



It is not clear from the 11:20 video, which shows the men singing and swaying in front of a video camera to a rap song, what probable cause police had to detain them.



One man was rolling a tobacco product, possibly a marijuana blunt, but that is not enough reason to detain an entire group of men and treat them like dangerous criminals.



But police came out of nowhere within 30 seconds into the video and demanded everybody place their hands up and get down on their knees. *snip*





Thousands of people gathered at The Embarcadero in San Francisco to celebrate the New Year and watch the annual fireworks show. Before midnight, however, a group of protesters also gathered in the middle of the festivities to protest against police brutality. 

Police in San Francisco kept a watchful eye to help facilitate the demonstrations. Things remained peaceful as protesters marched to the Ferry Building and up and down the sidewalk.

Protester Larry Everest said, "I hope thousands of people either join us or hold up a sign. At the stroke of midnight we're telling people, 'Hands up, don't shoot!' at the stroke of midnight!" *snip*


I'm just sayin'



Where's the peace and love and let live (you referred to) for black folks, huh?

It is so damn apparent that all of this police brutality and racists murdering Black people, is being deliberately orchestrated and is prelude to something far worse for Black people in America.  


It's time for Black people in America to Protest our so-called "leaders", Black politicians, Black attorneys, and African Americans with clout and money that sit back and do and say absolutely nothing while all these Lynchings of Black people take place.


Racists in America are trying to instigate a Blood-bath in this country, and virtually NOTHING is being done about it.  


African Americans should be meeting among ourselves and developing a PLAN to combat these racist troglodytes and and PLAN to insulate and protect our youth, our children, ourselves, and our communities from these psychopaths.

And, unfortunately, we also need to be prepared to die, just like those who prepared a way before us, just like so many of our ancestors were, because this is only the beginning of the horror show that is being prepared for Black people in America.


And, in the meantime, European countries are coming on board with China in it's desire to have the dollar declared worthless, and all these acts of racism and racist violence, and America's racist "Justice" System is only revealing to the whole world, America's hypocrisy and deceit, and that America cannot be trusted by its own citizens [let alone other nations], and reveals for the whole world to see, the lower-based mentalities allowed in positions of power and "authority" in this country.

Really? Like what?

Really? The question was a fair and honest. A conspiracy pundit made a statement about impending doom or "something far worse". How does asking a question make me a troll? And what is this bag of tricks and set ups accusation? I think your troll smear is getting a little stale....seriously. Ha! Ha! Ha!

Operation Ghetto Storm: 

2012 Annual Report on the extrajudicial killing of 313 Black people by police, security guards and vigilantes

The Report exposes how every 28 hours someone inside the United States, employed or protected by the U.S. government kills a Black child, woman or man. 

These state-sanctioned killings are the casualties of what we call  "Operation Ghetto Storm," a perpetual war to invade, occupy and pacify Black communities-- much like the U.S. invades and occupies the Middle East. 

"Operation Ghetto Storm" written by Arlene Eisen, with preface by Kali Akuno, is published by the Malcolm X Grassroots Committee. It is also available, with other important resources at

Read the Report, talk about it, take action.

War on Black America

December 28th, 2014  

by Stephen Lendman

Black Americans are in the eye of the storm. Militarized cops target them nationwide.


According to Operation Ghetto Storm, police, security guards, and other self-appointed enforcers kill black youths and adults on average every 28 hours.

"(S)tate-sanctioned killings." Casualties of war. Ongoing daily against black Americans. Compounded by other systemic abuses.


Including judicial unfairness. Get tough on crime policies. Mandatory minimum sentences. Guilty unless proved innocent. Three strikes and you're out.

Racist drug laws. Stop-and-frisk. Driving while black. Filling the world's largest gulag. Mostly with people of color.


Blacks most vulnerable of all. Getting longer sentences. More likely to receive capital punishment. Virtually never afforded justice.


Legal protections don't help. Jim Crow never ended. Systemic injustice defines America.


One in every eight black males is incarcerated on any given day. According to Law Professor Michelle Alexander:


"More black men are in prison or jail, on probation or parole than were enslaved in 1850 before the Civil War began."


Mostly because of the racist war on drugs. Waged "almost exclusively in poor communities of color."


In some inner-city ones, around 80% of Black youths can expect criminal injustice prosecutions one or more times in their lifetimes.


Around 70% return to prison within two years of release. If we returned to pre-1980 prison levels, "(m)ore than a million people working in the system would see their jobs disappear," said Alexander.


Billions of dollars are at stake. America's prison/industrial complex is by far the world's largest. Bigger than China's with four times the population.

Over 60% of black men born in 1965 or later without high school degrees have prison records. Marking them for life.


Vulnerable to re-arrest. Targeted by militarized cops. Arrested for any reason or none at all. Murdered by police unaccountably.


In big cities. Small ones. Urban areas. Rural ones. Militarized cops make their own rules. Operating extrajudicially. Killing with impunity.


On December 20, two police officers patrolling Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvesant community were shot and killed in their car.


NYPD deputy chief Kim Royster said Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were struck in their upper bodies.


The assailant fled to a nearby subway station. Identified as Ismaaiyl Brinsley. Dying of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.


New York Governor Andrew Cuomo condemned "this deplorable act of violence." Ordered flags on all state government buildings lowered to half staff. Honoring Liu and Ramos. Saying:


"I join with all New Yorkers in mourning the loss of Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos."


"Like all law enforcement personnel, Officers Liu and Ramos put their lives on the line in order to serve their communities, and it is with great sadness that we mourn their passing after a senseless and deplorable act of violence."


"My thoughts and prayers go out to the loved ones of these two brave men. We will remember their service with pride and endless gratitude."


"Tonight, we all come together to mourn the loss of these brave souls."


On Saturday, thousands from New York and elsewhere gathered in and around Christ Tabernacle Church in Queens. Attending Ramos' funeral. Honoring the slain men.


Including police and mourners. The Washington Post reported "a sea of police officers watch(ing) on big screens set up for the ceremony."


Mayor Bill de Blasio attended. So did Governor Cuomo and Vice President Joe Biden. "At the end of the day, we are one," said Cuomo.


"One people, one state, one community, one family. Somos uno. Somos uno. Somos uno." We are one in Spanish.


"Our hearts ache for you," Biden told Ramos' family. "Your husband, and his partner, they were a part of New York's finest, and that's not an idle phrase."

"When an assassin's bullet targeted two officers, it targeted this city and it touched the soul of an entire nation."


Mayor de Blasio called the shootings "a particularly despicable act."


"When a police officer is murdered, it tears at the foundation of our society. It is an attack on all of us."


"It is an attack on everything we hold dear. We depend on our police to protect us against forces of criminality and evil."


Obama issued a statement on the day of the killings, saying:


"I unconditionally condemn today's murder of two police officers in New York City."


"Two brave men won't be going home to their loved ones tonight, and for that, there is no justification."


The New York Times headlined "Long Line of Blue, Mourning the First of Two Slain Comrades."


Reporting "an overwhelming display of solidarity and sorrow." Saying "tens of thousands of police officers from across the country joined with (their New York comrades) to pay their respects…"


Who mourns for killer cop victims? For Trayvon Martin. Unarmed. Threatening no one. Murdered by Sanford, FL neighborhood watch coordinator George Zimmerman.


A killer cop equivalent by any standard. An earlier article discussing his acquittal asked when is killing a non-threatening unarmed teenager not murder?


When civil rights don't matter. When Jim Crow justice prevails.

When victims are black. When mostly or entirely white jurors call cold-blooded murder self-defense.


When a jury of peers representing both sides fairly is verboten. When killing black males in America is OK when whites do it.


When a culture of violence prevails. When institutionalized racism is longstanding. When conventional wisdom says black males aren't victims. They're prone to violence.


When equity and justice are four-letter words. When human life has no value. When society doesn't give a damn if a black male dies. When lawlessness is part of the national culture.


Cold-blooded murders is considered self-defense when killer cops are involved.

Who mourned for 18-year-old Michael Brown. Murdered by police officer Darren Wilson. Exonerated despite killing an unarmed youth. Posing no threat. With no criminal record.


An independent autopsy revealing six bullet wounds showed Wilson wanted him to die.


Who mourned for 12-year-old Tamir Rice. Playing in a park. With his sister and friend. Gunned down by Cleveland police.


What about Eric Garner. Father of six. Called a "neighborhood peacemaker." A generous, congenial person.


Threatening no one. Deserving to live. Murdered by police officer Daniel Pantaleo's chokehold. "I can't breathe" cries for help were ignored.


What about Oscar Grant. Unarmed. Threatening no one. Oakland, CA transit officer Johannes Mehserle thrust him face-down on the ground.


Claiming he resisted arrest. Despite having committed no crime. Shot in the back. Murdered in cold blood. Five bystanders witnessed it. Videotape on at least four cameras confirmed it.


Convicted of involuntary manslaughter. A rarity. Sentenced to two years in prison. Reduced to 292 days. For time served in jail. Free since June 2011.

Grant's family, relatives and friends were outraged. Demanded first-degree murder. His mother Wanda said "Oscar was murdered and the law has not held the officer accountable." Jurors didn't comment.


What about Amadou Diallo. New York cops fired 41 shots. Struck him 19 times. Killing him while standing unarmed in his apartment building vestibule.


What about Sean Bell. New York cops murdered him in cold blood. Celebrating the eve of his wedding. Struck dozens of times. As he emerged from a nightclub unarmed. Unthreatening. Prosecutions didn't follow.


NYPD cops illegally entered unarmed Ramarley Graham's home. With no search warrant or probable cause. Murdering him in his kitchen.


Similar incidents occur often. Killer cops are absolved. Occasionally, disciplinary reprimands follow. Cops lie.


Claiming self-defense. Deadly force used only when threatened, they say. Hundreds of cases annually show indiscriminate violence.


Black lives don't matter. Cold-blooded murder is called justifiable homicide. Nearly one black victim daily proves otherwise.


Who mourns for society's most vulnerable? Nameless, faceless victims. Blacks most often. Justice in America remains denied.

What’s stale and stankin' rotten are your repetitive creepy antics. Everyone – no exceptions – duly notes that you embrace the role of a mentally ill troll. I promise to never, ever respond to another of your posts because like other haters, you need and eat negativity and insult and vomit it back at others. That's quite a role you've created!!  Your actions turn everyone’s stomach.  Never again, son.


"So your troll ass is squarely on the side of law enforcement executing people and you had the poor taste to post a snooze emoji regarding black people being routinely executed in the streets by law enforcement?"


This is a perfect example of you (and others) cherry picking my posts and comments. I specifically and clearly stated previously that the execution style murders of John Crawford, Tamir Rice and the sickening strangulation of Eric Garner was criminal and completely unjustified! I deplore all unwarranted shootings of unarmed citizens -regardless of race! I HAVE STATED THIS BEFORE ALSO. So, your claim is bogus (no surprise)......


What I do find to be disturbing is the hysterical theatrics when a black is killed by the police -yet Negroes (like yourself) remain collectively mute about the staggering numbers of blacks murdered by other blacks. I see no riots in the streets, massive national protests and calls of independent investigations of the "thousands of blacks senselessly murdered" every year by criminal thug coons. Statistically and realistically, who do you think is the greatest threat to the lives of young black males -the police or other black males? DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH AND DO THE MATH!!!!! Done! The hypocrisy is unjustifiable and pathetic......

Ya know, I read your post....twice. And I thought about it and thought about it (after laughing at of course). There are a number of ways I can respond but I have decided to just say this: You're a gutless chump who cherry picks my comments, does coward drive bys with moronic pictures and juvenile name calling (you a a proxy Negro, you hate black people..etc). I have yet to see you respond with a deconstruction or counter point to anything I write. Just emotional carping with stupid ass pictures and more name calling. THAT'S ALL YOU DO AND THAT'S ALL YOU CAN DO.


I respond in great detail with my posts -YOU RESPOND WITH IMBECILIC NAME CALLING AND MORE PICTURES. But to be fair, if that is the best your 50 brain cells allows you to is what it is....HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!
