Earl Sampson, is filing racial profiling charges against the Miami Gardens Police Department. For the last 4 years at least one time a week Earl has been stopped by Miami Gardens police, as a result he has been questioned at least 258 times, searched over 100 times, and arrested 62 times with a majority of the citations taking place at the store he is employed at!

This case goes to show that the police presence in the black community isn’t there to protect and serve, it’s there to harass and arrest. It’s a common trend for police to harass Black Men daily because we are viewed as a threat since childhood. You don’t really hear many cases of racial profiling happening to White men. Actually when they compare Racial profiling cases between Black Men and White Men, the numbers will show you that Black Men are HIGHLY likely to be racially targeted by the police more than anyone else.

29 year old #CharlesSmith was killed by police in #Savannah, GA yesterday while handcuffed. Savannah is mobilizing.
Savannah residents seeking answers in the death of #CharlesSmith. Autopsy scheduled for today. This is one version of the event circulating on Twitter.

The first thing they put out about him after he was killed was he was a rapper who “glamorized violence” and all they could emphasize was his “troubled past.” They put up a picture of him that made him seem hard, but never bothered to put up a sweet one up like this. Meanwhile, some white guy down the street from me in the same city beats his wife to death and he was just “mentally unstable.” He is still alive. 
The night Charles was killed, I had to call pop a lock and a drunk man came out of nowhere and made the pop a lock guy freak out, so he called the cops. About 2 cop cars came just to subdue the man (who was Mexican and wasn’t really causing any trouble. I tried to speak to him in Spanish so he could understand better and I kept calmly telling him to please go home. I felt so bad when they put him in the car. The cops just laughed it off.) The cops questioned me about what happened and were talking about how dangerous Savannah was that night and that they had to kill someone. All they did was laugh.
Savannah is known for this. Police brutality is rampant here. Troy Davis walked these same streets that led him to his fate. All they do is laugh.

Idk much about this but I will say this is the article I found: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/ga-shots-kills-man-handcuffs-found-armed-gbi-article-1.1945108
