"I have had to experience so much stupidity, so many vices, so much error, so much nausea, disillusionment and sorrow, just in order to become a child again and begin anew. I had to experience despair, I had to sink to the greatest mental depths, to thoughts of suicide, in order to experience grace."

- Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha  (via 19040825)

Cops Strap African American Woman To Chair, Pepper Spray Her and Cut Off Her Hair

It’s the kind of story that you wouldn’t believe unless you saw it with your own eyes. Thankfully, this story was caught on surveillance video, so we can do just that.

Charda Gregory, a 22 year-old hairdresser, had allegedly trashed a hotel room. She was taken into custody by Michigan police, then pepper sprayed in jail, slammed against a wall and strapped down to a chair.

It was then that officer Bernadette Najor took out a pair of scissors and started hacking away at Gregory’s hair.

According to Charda’s lawyer, her hair hair was torn with such force that she suffered some permanent hair loss.

The officer tried to justify her actions in the police report, saying that the hair was a “suicide risk.” Thankfully, this resulted in charges against Gregory being dropped, and Najor being fired. But had this not been caught on video, who knows what would have happened.

Other officers involved are now under investigation.

Watch the video and SPREAD THE WORD! These sorts of abusive cops can only get away with as much as we allow them to.

All we can do is all we can do. Spread information.

The colors within the flags from its respective country are used to represent current, geographical relevant issues. Take a look.

This is kind of awesome.
