“The guy in red T-shirt is an American FBI Agent of South Sudanese origin. White cops harassed and attempted to arrest him. It gets sweet when he IDs himself. See how cops coiled their tails.”
Not sure if he’s actually an FBI agent…but these cops clearly got caught racial profiling…and he has some type of status, which stopped the process in it’s tracks…after he’d been put into handcuffs…So, it’s believable he is one.

“You probably don’t know it, but federal agents are working closely with police where you live. Over the past few decades, joint task forces staffed by both state and federal police have become common. They now number more than one thousand. As a result of these federal/state partnerships, the government often plays what amounts to a shell game that makes it impossible to hold individual officers to account if they violate someone’s constitutional rights by, for example, engaging in police brutality or other misdeeds.
Here’s how it works: The tools an individual can use to hold a government officer to account for violating the Constitution depend on whether the officer was acting under state or federal law. But if an officer acts under both state and federal law—as it does when a joint task force is involved—the question becomes murkier. An officer accused of abusing his federal authority can claim he was actually acting using his state-law authority, and an officer accused of abusing his state-law authority can say he was really acting as a federal officer. Plaintiffs are left guessing and sometimes end up thrown out of court altogether.
James King, a law-abiding college student in Grand Rapids, Michigan, was forced to play this game after he was brutally beaten in an unjustifiable case of mistaken identity. Task force members misidentified James as a fugitive; stopped, searched, beat and choked him into unconsciousness; and then—even after it was clear they had the wrong man—arrested James and charged his with a series of felonies to cover their tracks. After fighting a criminal prosecution aimed at preventing James from vindicating his constitutional rights and sending him to prison, James was acquitted. But that was just the beginning.
When James filed a lawsuit against the officers to hold them to account for their actions, the officers argued they were entitled to several forms of immunity and persuaded the court to throw out James’ case. An appeals court reversed the worst parts of that decision, but the government has now taken James’ case to the U.S. Supreme Court, asking the Court to shield the officers from any accountability for violating the Constitution.
James has partnered with the Institute for Justice to protect the rights of all Americans who encounter federal and state task forces. As part of IJ’s Project on Immunity and Accountability, James and IJ are asking the Supreme Court to end the shell game and hold officers to account when they violate individuals’ Constitution rights.”

“In (My) Truth: The Rape of Two Coreys, Feldman lists men who allegedly sexually assaulted him and Haim as children, including Sheen, actor Jon Grissom, and former talent manager Marty Weiss (Grissom and Weiss have denied allegations of abuse). EW reports that the documentary devotes a large portion of time to Haim’s claim against Sheen, details of which the star allegedly revealed to Feldman years ago.
“This wasn’t like a one time thing he said in passing. It wasn’t like ‘Oh, by the way, this happened.’ He went into great detail,” a crying Feldman says of Haim. “He told me, ‘Charlie bent me over in between two trailers and put Crisco oil on my butt and raped me in broad daylight. Anybody could have walked by, anybody could have seen it.’”
When the actors worked together on Lucas, Sheen was 19 and Haim, who passed away in 2010 from pneumonia, was 13.
That last paragraph gets back to something that’s been floating around out there for years…a bit more quietly, as the masses enjoy bludgeoning this entire spectacle with moral outrage and condemnation…without a care for what Corey Haim’s own role was, in all of it.
I’m just saying…
…This almost never gets acknowledged…but there have been accounts out there for years, telling of how Corey Haim wanted and enjoyed his sexual experiences, during that time in his life…and that he sought them out.
This type of behavior is not unheard of, where it comes to young, teenage boys.
…in this case, what appears to have been a gay, or bisexual, boy.

As promised…here is a link to the movie…I guess it’s available for another ten days, roughly.
It costs money to watch this…$20, apparently.
On principle, I find it straight out grotesque that anyone would take an issue like this and keep milking it for money…especially on this level.
I won’t be watching this, unless/until it becomes available somewhere for free.
I refuse to support this kind of money grabbing sensationalism.
If anything Corey Feldman has to say is so critical for you to know, and it’s imperative that the masses know…would he honestly be limiting and concealing it behind a pay wall?…as he’s done in the past, also?
…And…he’s “ending it’s run” on June 01, 2020…giving this movie a rather limited window of exposure…claiming he’s going to “move on”…
That is really, really bizarre…
…I’d be shocked if Corey weren’t back out there beating the drums with these tactics, within a year or two…possibly with another personal financial venture to push.

“The United States has long justified its support for Egyptian security services as necessary for the security and stability of Egypt and the region. Yet the means by which the Egyptian security services operate include arbitrarily arresting and torturing some of the most vulnerable members of the population – children. Now, with the coronavirus sweeping through the Middle East and conditions for children in detention ripe for a public health crisis, the situation is more dire than ever. The United States must end support to security services that disappear and torture children, and should stand up and press Egypt to end widespread abuses of detainees’ rights and the routine use of detention against children.
The case of a 17-year-old detainee named Wesam illustrates the abuses. For three frantic days in late 2017, Wesam’s family and friends had no idea where he was. Eventually they learned he had been arrested on his way to a protest. In his first days of detention, he was given only the soldiers’ and guards’ leftovers to eat, and he was interrogated for hours on end without being allowed to see a lawyer. He spent the next five months in a crowded cell at a Cairo police station that measured 9 x 9 feet. There were never fewer than 15 detainees, some of them adults, crammed in with him. The cell was so packed that inmates “slept on a shift schedule: a group of us sleeps for six hours, and another group wakes up,” he told us.
As of April 2020, Wesam is still under investigation for alleged membership in the Muslim Brotherhood, a movement the government outlawed as a “terrorist” organization and recently blamed for spreading the coronavirus. He is required to check in at a police station every day.
But he is one of the lucky ones. Egyptian security services have disappeared other children for up to 15 months and tortured them. In our work with Human Rights Watch and the U.S.-based rights organization Belady: An Island for Humanity, we recently reported on children detained for political reasons in Egypt. Like Wesam, most were held with adults in overcrowded, poorly ventilated cells, and denied adequate food and medical care. Many were also tortured.
Consider the case of Abdullah, who was only 12 when he was disappeared on December 31, 2017, a few months after his older brother joined a group that claims affiliation with the Islamic State (ISIS). For the first six months, Abdullah was held in several detention centers, where he was shocked with electricity, waterboarded, suspended by his right hand, and forced to lie on a burning hot metal bed frame. For the next 100 days, he was held in solitary confinement and denied adequate food, family visits, medical care, and the chance to bathe. After a period of slightly improved treatment, a police officer at the station where he was being held promised in January 2019 to return him to his family. However, when his older sister arrived the next day to collect him, officers denied knowledge of his whereabouts. His family has not seen him since.
Or consider what happened to Hamza, who is currently serving a 10-year prison sentence. He was 14 when forces from the Interior Ministry’s National Security Agency disappeared him in 2016 for allegedly taking part in a demonstration. For two days, officers shocked Hamza with electricity on his genitals, head, and tongue. On the third day, they suspended him from behind by his arms, which dislocated both his shoulders. He was left in an unheated corridor for three more days, in winter, then taken to an underground cell. On Hamza’s 15th birthday, a guard overheard him speaking to another prisoner, which was prohibited, and forced the boy to stand on tiptoe after placing sharp nails under his heels. “He hates his birthday now, he does not want to celebrate it again,” a relative told us.
It shouldn’t take a pandemic to get the United States to press Egypt to stop detaining and torturing children.”
…The United States government/elite only care about children and young people, when they personally have something to gain from it…
…And, yes…it can be egotistical gains…and financial gains…but it’s typically power greed gains…and gains in satisfaction, by way of violating people they claim to be “morally offensive”…or “socially corrupting”.
They don’t care about propping up, and supporting these types of ruthless abuses against children and youth, when it suits their own goals…and nobody else is seeing it happen, or connecting them to it.
So many U.S. politicians, and other powerful profiteers, are flat out bastards.
