Snoop Dogg highlights difference in how police arrest White mass murderers and how they arrest unarmed Black men

Snoop Dogg highlights difference in how police arrest White mass murderers and how they arrest unarmed Black men

Police brutality and racism are two topics on the lips of most Americans right now following the brutal murder of George Floyd.

Advertisements

Before Floyd’s death, he pleaded with a Minneapolis police officer to get off him because he couldn’t breathe.

Advertisements

“I can’t breathe. My neck hurts, my stomach hurts, everything hurt,” George cried out.

Advertisements

However, Derek Chauvin continued kneeling on his neck until he started bleeding through his nose and became unconscious. Even then, Chavin didn’t get off of him.

Advertisements

Bystanders asked Chauvin to get up as George Floyd had become motionless but he stayed on top of the unconscious man until an ambulance arrived.

George’s death and the death of other Black men killed by police has now renewed the call for justice in the United States.

People pointed out the difference in the way police handle Whites arrested for major crimes to the way they handle Black men arrested for petty crimes.

Snoop Dogg shared a photo collage showing the arrest of 4 men, two of whom are White and two Black.

The White men, Dylann Roof and Patrick Crusius, were arrested for mass murder. Yet, photos of their arrest show police treating them with dignity and used no force at all.

Officers even bought Dylann Roof food from Burger King following his calm arrest after he had killed nine African Americans and injured one other in Charleston Church.

In August 2019, Patrick Crusius, 21, killed 23 shoppers and injured 23 others at a branch of Walmart in El Paso, Texas. Yet he was arrested calmly.

At the bottom of the photos shared by Snoop are two Black men, Eric Garner killed in 2014 after a police officer put him in a chokehold, and George Floyd killed by police at the age of 46.

Garner and Floyd’s death are similar in the sense that police held them down and they screamed “I can’t breathe” until they died. In both cases, the police officers didn’t listen to their cries for help.

Eric Garner was arrested on suspicion of illegally selling cigarettes on July 17, 2014. He died after a police officer choked him for 15 seconds while he screamed “I can’t breathe”. George Floyd was arrested On May 25, 2020, after he was suspected of forgery. On Monday night, an employee at a Minneapolis grocery store called police after Floyd allegedly tried to pass a counterfeit $ 20 bill. 

Police claim Floyd resisted arrest but surveillance footage showing the incident leading up to George Floyd’s arrest shows he cooperated with officers.

Snoop Dogg captioned the photo collage: “So nice to the (white ). Mass shoooting suspects minutes after they killed 32 people combined But we die on the spot change gone come fuck marching and. Talking we done talking.”

He wrote:

 I made a promise to myself that i will never discuss anything that has to do with my brothers the Okoye’s family or ( Psquare ) on social media platforms not minding pressures from left right and centre. Jude have always been the elder brother to all of us while he was the manager as well too.

Our relationship as young hustlers/ brothers as at when i joined them started more then a decade and half about 16years or more, from Ilupeju together then to Omole phase 1 and building the psquare studio in omole house then and the rest is history, so when i say that to you all that before you talk or bash someone by jumping into conclusions, always make sure that you do your due diligence and have your facts right.

Well I’m not here to discuss Peter & Paul because this two are kind hearted & lovely beautiful personalities in their own ways nor the reason for the separation of the group ( Psquare ) because that’s a family matter and just like all of us come from our different families and we all have our own issues, none of you will bring the issues in your family to the public for sentiments or public pity expect maybe you don’t have respect for your family. First of all I will like to say A Very Big Thank You to Jude for speaking up & please do this more often big bro meanwhile I’m here to say that on the contract issues with Cynthia Morgan & May D, all this happened right in front of all of us. Yes nobody knows it all and just like the saying goes “anybody can make mistakes” & nobody is perfect.

On Jude’s position I Stand. Jude did the very best he knew to help each of their music careers and support them but i guess that lessons have been learned.

I will like to please ask Jude my elder brother to forgive and let this whole issue be laid to rest, while i’m trusting God and looking forward to seeing my two twin brothers Peter & Paul ( Psquare ) MAKE A COMEBACK in our very EYES while we’re all still Alive. To Cynthia Morgan ( Da German Juice Queen ) I pray you make a great comeback & to May D please make a great comeback too. #bringbackpsquare #letlovelead #forgiveness

A police statement said: “Sooraj stayed in the same room as Uthra as if nothing had happened. 

“He was going about his morning routine the next day when he was alerted by Uthra’s mother’s screams.”

It added: “They took her to the hospital where the doctor said she had died.”

According to MonoramaOnline, Uthra’s parents became suspicious when Sooraj tried to secure ownership of his wife’s property just days after her death.

She was from an affluent family, but Sooraj, who worked in a private bank, was not doing so well financially.

The couple had a one-year-old child.

Police said the marriage had involved a huge dowry comprising nearly 100 gold coins, a new car and some 500,000 rupees (around $20,000) in cash.

“Sooraj feared that divorcing Uthra would mean giving back all the dowry. That’s when he decided to kill her,” the police statement said.

The snake provider was also arrested, the statement added.

Former Serbian footballer, Miljan Mrdakovic, 38, commits suicide after saying ?I can?t take this anymore?

‘But he had problems, he liked to drink and I think that, in addition to the problems he had with depression, is the main reason why he did it.

‘After the end of his career, he struggled to cope because football meant everything to him.

‘He started working as an agent, but it is a job where sometimes you have work and earnings, sometimes you don’t. He was depressed and anxious.

‘The day before the suicide he drank a little too much and I felt like something bad could happen. I calmed him down, dragged him to bed and we talked all night.

‘When we woke up, he started drinking. I froze when I saw a gun next to him. I cried and asked him to put it away and I called his mother to talk to him.

‘I asked him to come with me and went to the bathroom to get dressed. Every now and then I looked at what he was doing and then suddenly I heard a shot. I ran away from the apartment and called the paramedics.’

Mrdakovic played for twenty clubs across 10 countries including Vitoria Guimaraes in Portugal and Maccabi Tel Aviv in Isreal. He also played nine matches with Serbia U21s and three times for Serbia at the 2008 Olympics.

Former club Maccabi Tel Aviv posted a statement, reading: “Maccabi Tel Aviv is saddened to learn of the passing of the club’s former Serbian striker, Miljan Mrdakovic, who died in tragic circumstances on Friday in his native Belgrade, aged 38.

“Mrdakovic played for Maccabi in the 2006-07 season under then-coach Eli Cohen, and as a 24-year-old he made an immediate impression when in the opening round of the season he scored a spectacular goal against Beitar Jerusalem as he beat three defenders in a solo run that began in his own half before unleashing a powerful shot from the edge of the area.

“That season was his only campaign with Maccabi Tel Aviv in which he scored eight goals and set up four others in 29 appearances. After leaving Maccabi he moved to Portugal.”

He wanted big car, house in Lekki like Psquare – Jude Okoye gives reason for sacking May D

The former manager of the now-defunct P-Square, Jude Okoye, has responded to allegations of maltreatment made against him by singer Akinmayokun Awodumila, popularly known as May D.

May D had in a series of tweets on Sunday revealed his ordeal under Jude Okoye who is also the elder brother to Paul and Peter, formerly known as Psquare.

Advertisements

May D said he had no personal bank account despite releasing hit songs, adding that he was maltreated under Square records.

The singer further claimed that he shared the boys quarter in the Okoye’s home with their cook and slept on cartons and was not given the credits for writing their ‘Invasion’ album.

Advertisements

May D was reacting to a tweet where a fan had accused him of leaving Psquare in 2012 because he (May D) was being greedy.

But speaking in an Instagram Live chat with blogger Tunde Ednut on Sunday, Jude, said, “I treated him as a brother, gave him a platform, flew him across America, put him on a show with Akon, and gave him a home in my place.

“We treated him as a family. We spent over $100k. When I saw potentials, I gave him a contract.

“He came back after 2 weeks asking that he needed incentives: A big car, a house in Lekki, and more, just like the Square. I said no. Paul spoke to him, he said no. I told him to go.”
