Fourteen-year-old Tremaine McMillan says he was feeding his puppy and playing on the beach with some friends when cops riding ATVs approached him and asked where his mother was.
When McMillan walked away to lead them to his mother, the police chased him on ATVs, jumped out, knocked the puppy from his arms (the puppy was injured, and the police did not mention this in their report) pinned McMillan to the ground and arrested him. McMillan was charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. His trial is in July.
Please reblog and help spread Tremaine’s story. This is racism, pure and simple and this innocent 14 year old does not deserve to be charged with a felony.
What the actual fucking shit? Even if this story wasn’t complete fabricated bullshit and the 14 year old BOY fully intended to somehow attack or harm the police…what the fuck is he going to do anyway? Throw sand in your eyes? Were they really that fucking terrified of a skinny child that they had to slam him to the ground and choke him out?
Yeah, sorry, I figured my batons, pepper spray, guns/tasers, steel handcuffs, men behind me and extensive training wouldn’t be enough to contain the situation if things got physical, so I had to beat the shit out of him as a preliminary caution. What complete cowards, not to mention bullies.
Even if it was a physical situation, which it obviously wasn’t, that force would never have been justified. That officer could have apprehended him with minimal force if he even needed to, WHICH HE DID NOT

Things to think about.
That’s…. That’s a good point.
Hmm. That makes me uncomfortable about a few things. My mind is a little blown right now.
I was at Hot Topic and saw this cool tshirt for some band or something called Bring Me the Horizon and idk what bring me the horizon is and don’t really care but the shirt is cute so i’ll wear it
this is fantastic, the middle private message explains it best, haha
It’s interesting that people will go so far out of their way to point out the hypocrisy in your life if you’re vegan, like vegans are the only beings capable of contradiction and the absolute worst kind of contradiction at that. I mean you can rise to power advocating peace while bombing the fuck out of foreign countries, that’s cool man, but claim to be vegan and accidentally step on a slug and we’ll riot so hard I swear to god.
HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE
Let’s say it’s 6.15pm and you’re going home (alone of course), after an unusually hard day on the job. You’re really tired, upset and frustrated. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only about five miles from the hospital nearest your home. Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself..!!
NOW HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE…
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously.
A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.
A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.
Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating.
The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can perhaps buy precious time to get themselves to a phone and dial 911.
