Donald Andrews Jr. A Black man and Business Owner from New York was cleared just last April After being Arrested on Drugs Charges in Scotia, New York. Police were “suspicious” of Donald Andrews Jr.’s store, which sells incense and smoking paraphernalia, and sent undercover informants several times in March. In one of the informants visits he is seen on Andrews hidden camera planting Crack Cocaine on the counter in Andrews Store.
Andrews was arrested in April 2013 and cleared only after he asked a Grand Jury to watch the surveillance footage from his store. The informant used a cellphone photo he took of the planted drugs as evidence that Andrews was dealing, leading to his arrest.
*YES THIS IS FUCKING REAL LOOK IT UP*
The police claim that the informant has now “fled” and they haven’t found his whereabouts. The sheriff “claims” his investigators didn’t purposely framed Andrews and have the “informant” out to be some rogue agent.
FYI this same “informant” has lead to seven other drug-related arrests the Report says.
Sounds like a Movie right? But yall still out here calling people “conspiracy theorists”.
Andrews is now in the process of suing NYPD.

Nice! Stick I too em.
Police planting crack to lock up Black people is no conspiracy theory. It’s American History (1980-present).
Dominican artist Amara La Negra is everything.
BREAKING: Federal Judge Strikes Down Part Of Texas Abortion Law That Would Have Shuttered More Than A Dozen Clinics
The law would have required abortion clinics to meet hospital-level operating standards, but opponents argued it would make it too costly to remain open.
A Federal judge Friday struck down parts of a Texas law that would have shuttered more than a dozen abortion clinics, the Associated Press reported.
The law — which Texas Gov. Rick Perry signed in 2013 — would have required abortion clinics to meet hospital-level operating standards. After the law passed, a group of clinics sued, arguing that the new requirements made it too costly to remain open. They also argued the law was designed as a backdoor effort to force them to close.
Proponents countered that the requirements were designed to protect women’s health. There are 19 facilities in Texas that provide abortions, the AP reported.
In his ruling Friday, Judge Lee Yeakel said the law would “create an impermissible obstacle as applied to all women seeking a previability abortion.”
The law drew national attention last year when Democratic state Sen. Wendy Davis conducted a marathon filibuster to stop the law.Eric Gay / AP
Davis’ filibuster managed to kill the bill, but Perry brought it back during a special legislative session. He said that the state would “not allow the breakdown of decorum and decency to prevent us from doing what the people of this state hired us to do,” the BBC reported. The law passed on its second time through the Texas legislature.
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbot said he would appeal the ruling, the AP reported.
Lauren Bean, a spokeswoman for Abbot, confirmed to BuzzFeed Friday that an appeal was in the works: “The State disagrees with the court’s ruling and will seek immediate relief from the Fifth Circuit, which has already upheld HB 2 once.”
In the past, the state has fought hard to preserve the law in the past. After Judge Yeakel tossed out another part of the law last year, the state took it to an appeals court in New Orleans, according to The New York Times. The appeals court sided with Texas and reversed the lower court decision. That ruling ultimately forced some facilities in Texas to stop offering abortions.

William Bratton: Investigate Ryo Oyamada's Death
Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run. Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph. The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp.
On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture. I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive. But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency. Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up.
Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case. *Edit* This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police. Please advise, it is highly disturbing.
And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.
On February 21st, 2013, Ryo Oyamada was struck and killed by a police cruiser while crossing the street. NYPD claimed that the cruiser’s lights and sirens were on before the collision, but multiple eyewitnesses stated otherwise, that the lights and sirens were only turned on afterwards, and that the cruiser was speeding in excess of 70 mph down a residential street. None of these eyewitnesses were interviewed for the police report.
This is atrocious. . By the time everyone wakes up.. i fear it will be too late..
