An LA protester had been held for 2 weeks on $30k bail. Throw some support Jay’s way! https://www.gofundme.com/f/free-jay-from-jail
Dijon Kizzee was riding his bike in south LA. Sheriffs tried to stop him for a traffic violation, shot him in the back, left his body in the st. https://ktla.com/news/local-news/dijon-kizzee-was-running-away-from-deputies-when-he-was-fatally-shot-in-south-l-a-family-attorneys-say/
The RPD chief just resigned along with both his deputies, which is a victory—the man felt the need to thoroughly self-pity—but damned if this isn’t going to make the protests tonight worse with a bunch of pissed-off cops and no one officially in charge. Which is what RPD is hoping for.
Lmao I need 480 dollars worth of fillings and my bottom wisdom teeth removed which I don’t have a price for yet. And that’s with the low income discount. One medical emergency has already wiped me out this summer and my UE is out this week. If anyone wants to help me
This is a bad time to ask for money but I don’t have any options. Thank you.
Y'know what sucks?
The BLM protests are still happening with less media attention.
The Portland police are rioting and it's not being reported by media at large as people are being assaulted in the streets.
Another Black trans girl, Brayla Stone, was murdered in Little Rock, AR and she's being misgendered in the news while her alleged killer is bragging about making a 5K hit.
Black Lives Matter LA has started a new bail fund for the thousands of protestors arrested the past two days: 👇👇

Breakaway on Twitter has been sharing a lot of good sources on the uprisings in Italian prisons in response to the poor handling of covid19 https://twitter.com/Breakaway_chi

I have seen more journalism addressing incarceration and pandemics in the last few weeks than I ever have. It's so important that we don't forget the people who are locked up and behind bars
Delaying paying rent no matter where you are could be one of the biggest stress relievers in times such as these. Financially, it really wouldn't make a difference landlors/real estate holding but for the people it's a boost that would really enable people to not have to struggle.
But the greed and contempt this country has for it's people cannot be underestimated.
Empathy just isn't something the US does on a national scale when there is money to be made.
