NYPD beat Muslim teens, rip off hijabs
(trigger warning for police brutality)
A disturbing story emerged out of the Bronx on Thursday. Two Muslim sisters, Lamis Chapman and Khalia Wilson, aged 12 and 14 respectively, told the New York Daily News that they were thrown to the ground, put in chokeholds, and had their hijabs violently torn off by members of the NYPD, for a reason that remains unclear.
Chapman and Wilson said they were playing handball around 9:30 pm in the park near their home in the Lester Patterson Houses in Mott Haven, the Bronx, when police approached them and asked them to leave, as the park was closed.
The girls recounted that the cops followed them out of the park, and one grabbed Wilson from behind, putting her in a chokehold and wrestling her to the ground. “They said they asked for ID. I didn’t hear them,” reported Wilson. When her sister protested, she was also thrown to the ground, and both sisters’ headscarves were ripped off.
"I kept saying, ‘I’m 14! What are you doing? We’re not bad kids,’" explained Wilson.
When their 15-year-old brother, Shytike Wilson, saw the police assaulting his younger sisters from a window, he ran to their aid. “I asked them why my sisters were in handcuffs,” he said, when the police, “charged me, picked me up, and slammed me on the floor.”
An 18-year-old college student, Jonathan Harris, became involved when he heard the girls screaming and ran to the park to help. He told the cops to leave the teens alone and took out his cell phone to record the incident, but was also subjected to police abuse.
You Stole My Artwork: An Open Letter to Anita Sarkeesian
Long Story Short: You stole my art, used it for commercial purposes, and won’t even respond to my polite inquiries.
Financial and legal complications aside, I hope you…
Didn’t she also basically admit she doesn’t play video games yet all the feminists drank her video gamy sexism punch? What a cunt bag. Hope you win this.
This woman stole money, LP footage, and lord knows what else. And she’ll keep doing this as long as feminists make excuses for you and companies give her awards. She needs to be called out.
I’m sure I will never ever make excuses for her. This affects the movement as she has made herself so prominent already. If only she had bothered to do it with the right mediums.
