“His response was to fight it with the only weapons at hand—passive resistance and open displays of contempt.” ― Kurt Vonnegut, The Sirens of Titan

Cop pulls black man over in Ohio for ‘direct eye contact’ – NY Daily News http://m.nydailynews.com/news/national/pulls-black-man-ohio-direct-eye-contact-article-1.2343158

The officer lets Felton off with a warning, and when pressed for an explanation, he tells Felton: “Because you made direct eye contact with me and held onto it when I was passing you… I’m not going to argue about it anymore.” He threatens to issue a citation if Felton keeps talking back.

Freddie Gray, the Baltimore man whose head and neck nearly severed while being beaten to death in police custody triggeredviolent riots in the city, was stopped by police in April after making eye contact with officers and running away.

the Psychology of Policing employs the same narrative as domestic violence. It also encourages the silencing and abuse of men of all colors, and black women, brown women and Latina's. It is IRONIC that the initiatives of white female academics-VAWA specifically encouraged a patriarchal police state.

    What’s infuriating that police and agents use the opposite behavior also to justify police suspicion. “He shifted his eyes to avoid eye contact.”

    The point is that any THIN reason to detain a man is enough… and if he’s not white, then you don’t need any reasonable suspicion or probable cause.

      Yes, it’s true. We have lost everything that was gained in civil rights of the 60’s.

      But here’s food for thought: perhaps the exclusion of white males- who actually suffer oppression-from the dialogues of oppression has contributed to this state of affairs.

      I just reviewed the stats about police homicides- the largest number of dead men is white.

      I wrote about the case of Kelly Thomas of Fullerton CA who was beaten to death on film; and the case of the guy in Canada who photographed at the G8 and was torn up by cops just before Slutwaljs were stsrted-both of these greusome police abuses were swept under the rug because they were racialized and gendered. Both were white men who had no privileged narrative or expectation of it.

      I wrote about being shot in the back with a Taser two years before talking about getting shot in the back was pooularized.

      The 1990’s white female academic rhetoric has created a schism of reality management in the marginalized wm experience of institutional violence- which is why I criticize them heavily.
