Police wrestled a black woman to the ground, exposing her breasts in restaurant

Despicable racism!

It looked like a sexual assault in a public restaurant. Slave patrols pulling a black woman’s clothes off in public and dragging her to the ground over plastic wear & patrons kept eating like it was nothing. Cop also threatened to break black woman’s arm. Perverted slave patrol mofos!  Dylann Roof killed 9 Black people at a church & cops took him to get food at Burger King. I despise them with everything in me!

Two police officers in Alabama wrestled a woman to the ground in a Waffle House on Sunday morning, exposing her breasts during the struggle and prompting comparisons to two black men arrested in a Philadelphia Starbucks earlier this month.

The incident sparked a sit-in protest at the store Sunday afternoon, and prompted responses from the NAACP and celebrities.

A video that has gone viral shows Chikesia Clemons, 25, sitting on a chair at the diner in Saraland, north of Mobile, as one of the officers grabs her neck and right wrist in an attempt to subdue her. Clemons describes a disagreement with a store employee that triggered the police response. She soon appears conscious of her tube top, and raises her arms to cover her bust line.

“You’re not going to grab on me like that, no,” Clemons tells the officer, who appears to speak to another officer off-camera in the video filmed by Clemons’s friend, Canita Adams.

What happens next is unclear. AL.com published an edited version of Adams’s video that jumps to the moment Clemons and the two officers go to the ground in a violent tumble. It is unclear from the video who initiated the struggle that forced Clemons and the officers to the floor.

“What are you doing?” Clemons asks as the struggle continues on the tile floor.

“I’ll break your arm, that’s what I’m about to do,” an officer says.

The struggle continues, with officers demanding Clemons to stop “resisting” as her breast is exposed.

At one point, an officer places his hand around her neck.

“You’re choking me!” Clemons cries out.

The officer releases his grip when a third officer nearby gestures with his hand. Clemons was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, her mother Chiquitta Clemons-Howard told AL.com

الإبداع…طاقات لا حدود لها…نجوى حرحش بخيطان ومسامير

nadiaharhash

لا أعرف كم هو سهل ، الكتابة عن موهبة تكون اختي هي النجمة فيها .

ولكنني ، وبينما كنت أشاهد مقابلة تلفزيونية أجريت لأختي نجوى إثر مشاركتها بركن في بازار بالقدس قبل عدة ايام ، لم أستطع الا ان انظر اليها بعين اعجاب شديد.

من يشاهد لوحات نجوى المصنوعة من المسامير والخيطان برسومات وزخارف واشكال ملفتة ، يظن ان هذه الانسانة كبرت على هذا النوع من الاحتراف . والمفاجأة دائما ، هل كل هذه الحرفية عمرها بضع شهور؟

بين جواب مباشر بنعم ، وجواب اكيد بلا ، تؤكد نجوى مرة أخرى ان الابداع لا يحتاج الى مكان ولا زمان. يحتاة الى قرار واصرار.

من يعرف نجوى لا يتفاجأ ، لأن شغفها نحو الرسم والفنون كان منذ صغرها ، ودراسة القانون لم تكن الا تذكرة خروج لها من القدس للتعلم بالخارج. راوغت حينها بين حرية حركة وحرية روح ، ظنت انها تستطيع المساومة فيها …. وعلمت اخيرا ، ان الروح الحرة…
