Police Shut Down Summit Neighborhood, Remove Petland Family Amidst Protests

Racism is becom­ing a very expen­sive pos­ture to main­tain. Unfortunately, this pos­ture is not only evi­dent in the United States now. This has been evi­dent in Israel for decades, where the Apartheid Israeli state fences itself off from the Palestinian peo­ple who have occu­pied Palestine for thou­sands of years.
This seems to be only the begin­ning as the younger gen­er­a­tion takes a stand against white supremacy.

The Richland County Sheriff’s Department has shut down access to a Northeast neigh­bor­hood after peace­ful protests have turned disruptive.
Around 8:20 p.m., deputies were dis­patched to Jonathan Pentland’s home after receiv­ing reports that it had been vandalized.
Upon arrival, offi­cials found that objects had been thrown at the home and through an upstairs win­dow. A light fix­ture attached to the home was also broken.
Pentland was even­tu­al­ly arrest­ed for con­fronting a Black man walk­ing on the side­walk out­side of his home, but only after a video of the encounter went viral on social media and view­ers react­ed with out­rage. He has been arrest­ed and charged with third-degree assault and battery.
Jail records show Pentland has since been released from the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
Officials say the fam­i­ly has been removed from the home by law enforce­ment and trans­port­ed to anoth­er location.

It must be nice how cops make these deci­sions to pro­tect their own; even when they are charged with felonies, the tax­pay­ers have to foot the bill for their pro­tec­tion.
Barricades, fenc­ing, and police pro­tect Kim Potter’s home.

Meanwhile, in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, where police offi­cer Kim Potter shot and killed 20-year-old Daunte Wright, police erect­ed a bar­ri­cade around her home, and offi­cers main­tain a defen­sive posture.
Of course, the Derek Chauvin tri­al defense con­tin­ues to blow smoke up the jury’s ass that what we wit­nessed with our own eyes we did not see.
