The ‘ol classic crying white woman tactic, works almost every time. :rolleyes:

For some, one of the most dangerous substances on Earth. Many have died in this country as a result of their use.

About a month or so ago, a Black mother was pulled from her car in front of her kids at gunpoint and told by a cop "I'll blow your fucking head off" after her infant daughter walked out of a dollar store with a $1.00 doll.

I bet she cried too.

This is a more realistic and respectable of our Peace Officers. Having empathy and humility are qualities I want in ALL public officials, not just Peace Officers.

God will bless you three cop one day I promise. That’s for pure kindness and compassion . It’s brakes my hart to see a person steel because she probably was to ashamed to ask for help. I feel your pain. This happens all the time in nyc and something has to be done about hunger in New York City 💔💔💔💔

...........

I bet she cried too...........


Unfortunately the hubby in the car also was shoplifting from what I read about it and probably added to the drama.

No matter what..it was far in excess and dangerous and terribly traumatic for all..the cops should have the book thrown at them.. Those cops gotta go..

I'm glad that this woman got some help from these officers.

That said, Doni's point is also salient; she looks either White or close enough to White. Had she looked like, say, this:

I suspect the outcome would've been rather different, despite the tears on this woman's face.

Or this woman, threatened by White supremacists.

https://womenintheworld.com/2018/10/12/1st-black-woman-legislator-in-vermont-resigns-after-white-supremacists-threaten-safety-of-her-family/

I'm sure she had tears on her face, too.

Freckles gets a helping hand..

Giant manta ray seeks help from diver

A giant manta ray with fish hooks embedded under its eye approached a diver off Western Australia and appeared to be asking him for help in removing the unwanted fishing gear.

Monty Halls of the U.K. was among a group of freedivers exploring Ningaloo Reef with Ningaloo Marine Interactions when he witnessed the encounter with guide Jake Wilton, calling it "one of the best things I've ever seen underwater."

"I'm often guiding snorkelers in the area and it's as if she recognized me and was trusting me to help her," Wilton told The Independent via World News.

"She got closer and closer and then started unfurling to present the eye to me. I knew we had to get the hooks out or she would have been in big trouble. I went for a few dives down to see how she'd react to me being close to her."

The manta ray remained calm with his close proximity, and Wilton said it "stayed completely still in the water," allowing him to remove the hooks.

"That manta absolutely understood what was going on," Halls told The Independent. "Jake went down again and again and she just remained still for him."

The Independent reported that manta rays are believed to be one of the more intelligent creatures in the ocean, and are "generally harmless" to humans because, unlike stingrays, they don't have an external spike.

This particular manta ray is known to locals as Freckles.

David Boyle, who lectures on marine biology at the University of Plymouth, told The Independent, "It's pretty incredible behavior if this is what happened. It's not uncommon for animals - generally mammals - to interact with divers, but for one in distress to seek out assistance would be novel indeed.
