This is nonsense. Of course the picture used here is her mug shot. Typical portrayal of blackness as negative. I wonder if she had paler skin if the Walton Tribune would have reached out to the family for a pic that displays her humanity? The cop in this story should be fired. Policing as a historical extension of the 'slave patrol', needs to be done away with as an institution and black people should be the ones protecting themselves and setting up defenses within their community. This way they'll know how to protect themselves coming from the same culture and experiences. Hopefully they won't get beat or die so much from this modern iteration of the oppressive arm of the US. Though this website gives plenty of ways they can take comments down, serious discussion of these issues needs to take place. The real question we should ask though is.... did I lie?

Her humanity? The police were called because Kyndesia Smith threw a bottle at another woman and threatened the womans child, it was caught on video. Kyndesia Smith knew she had done wrong and yet acted like she didnt care about that and the police had no right to be on their property ( Uhm, you being arrested). I woman who commitied a violent act and then resisted arrest and your looking for news to show a photo that shows her humanity?? The officer should not have been dispatched to a potentially violent 911 call alone, did his best to capture a criminal that was resisting arrest. He should be rehired immediatly and the whoever dispatched him to the 911 call alone should be fired. Kyndesia Smith's ignorance is obviose, you do not assaulf someone and chant Black Lives Matter while resisting arrest

lol. The Walton Tribune already took down my comment regarding a critique of this article. I suppose that's easier for them to do that than actually deal with my points.
