A 20-year-old black man who was rushed and brutally assaulted by a group of white supremacists in Charlottesville two months ago is now himself facing a felony charge.
Deandre Harris was participating in a counterprotest to the white nationalists' "Unite the Right" rally in August when a clash broke out in a parking garage near the University of Virginia campus.
Video of the incident shows Harris on the ground being violently kicked and beaten with poles by several attackers.
One person involved in the brawl, who has not been identified by authorities, has now accused Harris of injuring him during the exchange. The Charlottesville police department said in a press release on Monday it has issued an arrest warrant for Harris for unlawful wounding.
The video and several images of Harris' beating went viral, triggering a social media crusade to identify the white supremacists responsible for the violence. Harris told media he had suffered injuries from the beating including lacerations to his head, a concussion, a broken wrist, and a chipped tooth.
Two men - 18-year-old Daniel Borden of Ohio and 33-year-old Michael Ramos of Georgia - were identified, arrested, extradited to Virginia, and charged with malicious wounding in August. At a court hearing for Ramos last month, his attorney reportedly said it may have been Harris who "struck the first blow in that fracas."
Harris' attorney S. Lee Merritt has described the charge against his client as "clearly retaliatory" and said Harris will soon turn himself into police.
"We find it highly offensive and upsetting, but what's more jarring is that he's been charged with the same crime as the men who attacked him," Merritt told The Washington Post.
He added that it was "highly unusual" for a warrant to come from the magistrate rather than the police department, and suggested that the alleged victim had previously made an unsuccessful attempt at accusing Harris.
The Charlottesville Police Department, however, said in its press release that the warrant was issued by the police department, at the request of the magistrate.
"The victim went to the Magistrate's office, presented the facts of what occurred and attempted to obtain the warrant. The magistrate requested that a detective respond and verify these facts," the release said. "A Charlottesville Police Department detective did respond, verified the facts and a warrant for Unlawful Wounding (va Code 18.2-51) was issued."
After news broke of the arrest warrant against Harris on Monday, white nationalists openly celebrated on Twitter. One even suggested that a crowdsourced effort to produce evidence against Harris occurred:
So my girl almost cousin n law asked me to fix her man's computer i ignored it for months because I was gping through mad stuff and they never ever called me about it

Lets say you and your homie rob a bank. You get caught and your friend gets away. The police say that you're looking at 20 years, but if you give up your accomplice (your homie) then they can work out a deal where you only have to serve 5 years.
What would be "keeping it real"?
1. Snitching on your homie to get a lighter sentence (5 years)
2. Not snitching and serving the 20 years
Don’t let her doll face fool you, Julia Vins is a powerful young woman. The 20-year-old is a powerlifter who started the sport to improve her self esteem when she was 15. One of the coaches at the gym saw she had talent and the potential to become a competitive weightlifter.
Julia may be known as “Muscle Barbie” but she is very confident of who she is. “I have these big, beautiful eyes and wear make-up. But at the same time, I’m strong,” says Julia. The Russian is often criticized for choosing a sport deemed unfeminine but Julia sees it as her true calling. She won the 2014 World Powerlifting Championships in Moscow, Russia. She also broke three world records in squat, bench press, and deadlift.
She works hard for that body.

She keeps it simple.
Her meals usually consist of chicken, rice, vegetables, cheese, and eggs.
Mike Ditka Doesn’t See Black Oppression, but He Wants NFL Protesters to See Their Way Out of His Country
Former NFL coach Mike Ditka has never been an ally in the struggle of African Americans—he just coached black players—but he’s a bigot nonetheless. Never forget that for every edition of the cover of ESPN’s magazine showing then-New Orleans Saints coach Ditka posing as the unhappy groom next to running back Ricky Williams is another portrait of Ditka, the sports icon who wants those who kneel during the national anthem to “find another country.”
Here’s Ditka stance on Colin Kaepernick’s protest against the killings of unarmed black men, women and children, from the Shan & RJ radio show:
“I think it’s a problem. Anybody who disrespects this country and the flag. If they don’t like the country they don’t like our flag, get the hell out. My choice is, I like this country, I respect our flag, and I don’t see all the atrocities going on in this country that people say are going on,” Ditka said. “I see opportunities if people want to look for opportunity. Now, if they don’t want to look for them then you can find problems with anything, but this is the land of opportunity because you can be anything you want to be if you work. If you don’t work, that’s a different problem.”
Ditka, 77, is also a Donald Trump supporter, so there is that.
On Monday, Ditka, the man who once coached a team that gave the world this piece of jewelry......,
claims that there has been no oppression of blacks in the last 100 years and that players should “respect the game.”
“Is this the stage for this?” Ditka said during an interview with Jim Gray. “If you want to protest, or whatever you want to protest, you’ve got a right to do that. But I think you’re a professional athlete. You have an obligation to the game.”
“I don’t see a lot of respect for the game, I just see respect for their own individual opinions. … Respect the game, play the game,” Ditka continued. “When you want to protest, protest when the game’s over, protest whatever other way you want to.”
This is a common opinion held by those who don’t believe the players are people off the field: the idea that they should be able to protest, but not during business hours, and surely not during a game and not in uniform, and actually not at the stadium.
Ditka added that if he were still a coach, he would demand that his players stand for the anthem.
“Yes. I don’t care who you are, or how much money you make. If you don’t respect our country, you shouldn’t be in this country playing football,” he said. “Go to another country and play football. If you had to go to somewhere else and try to play this sport, you wouldn’t have a job.
“If you can’t respect the flag and this country, then you don’t respect what this is all about, so I would say: Adios,” he said.
Also, did I mention that Ditka is a Trump supporter? So, there is that.
Ben Shapiro’s Daily Wire Website Posts Racist Video Mocking Native Americans for Columbus Day
To celebrate Columbus Day this year, right-wing pundit Ben Shapiro’s website posted a video apparently excusing ethnic genocide by depicting Native Americans as cannibals and savages who weren’t tamed until white Europeans came to America and took their land.
The Daily Wire’s animated video begins with a caption that sarcastically reads, “The North American indigenous people are a noble people…” Then, a group of Native Americans are seen slaughtering and even eating each other. But alas, there is hope for these evil, murderous savages, as the clip then cuts to a very Caucasian looking Christopher Columbus arriving on the North American continent and taming the indigenous people. He does this by teaching them how to construct buildings, raise cattle, and farm crops — though, the video does not include the ethnic genocide, land-stealing, and rape that Columbus and his crew are known by many for.
The second caption reads “1492-2017” and a montage of civilizational progress is shown — suggesting that this positive progress was the sole result of white Europeans showing up in America and killing off much of the native population.
The cherry on top of this racist sundae is a text-on-screen segment in the video that reads, “List Of Contributions.” The Native American side of this list includes dreamcatchers, tomahawks, and cannibalism. On the other side of the screen, the “After Columbus” contributions include iPhones, cars, airplanes, electricity, women’s suffrage, human rights, “The Simpsons,” and about 15 other things.
While Shapiro likes to bill himself as a conservative pundit who is vehemently opposed to racism and the alt-right, with videos like these, it is hard to understand why, as white nationalist leader Richard Spencer often espouses the exact same talking points promoted in this video. Additionally, Shapiro has in the past made openly racist comments about Arabs. “Israelis like to build. Arabs like to bomb crap and live in open sewage. This is not a difficult issue. #settlementsrock,” tweeted Shapiro in 2010.
Once again another conservative “provocateur” is exposed as a racist...
This is how you know the state of black men is constantly under attack. It's bad enough to deal with white supremacists, but it's completely something else when our own sisters. SMH Here's the article:
Because “Harrasser” Is Just Not Enough: Why I Consider Calling Black Men Terrorists
September 27, 2017 | By Veronica Wells
I’ve started taking a new route to work that puts me closer to my actual office building. It helps me avoid a ten minute walk. While the commute is shorter, when I step off of the train, there’s so much more to see than what I notice on the longer trek. Outside of this train stop there’s a farmer’s market every morning. There are vendors selling dresses and other, mostly women’s, goods.
For years, I’ve been trying to get my hands on one of those Jamaican mesh dresses. You know the ones that often feature the colors red, black, green and yellow. Something like what Rihanna wore in her “Work” video. When my boyfriend traveled to Jamaica earlier this year, I tasked him with procuring one of those dresses but, to make a very long story short, it was stolen.
Anyway, so when I saw the dress hanging there outside, I kind of started meandering, wondering if I should keep on my course toward the office or stop and inquire about the dress I’ve been tryna cop forever. In my stagnant indecision, a man, Black, steps and bends into my line of vision, making sure I heard him over the music coming from my headphones.
“Are you looking for the Statue of Liberty?” He asked.
I frowned a bit until I noticed he was wearing a shirt with the image of Lady Liberty embroidered on it. He worked for some tourist company.
“Oh no, I’m not.”
Since I had been further delayed, I decided to ask the man with the dress a few questions. I was touching the dress on the hanger, asking how much it cost and did he have one with the red color in it, when the Statue of Liberty man says, “You don’t want that cheap sh*t.” I looked over at him, waiting for him to tell me something I didn’t know or explain further why this wouldn’t be a good use of my money. But he didn’t have anything else to offer. He repeated himself, “You don’t want that cheap sh*t…Unless you’re into cheap sh*t.” Then, looking me up and down, he said, “Oh yeah you look like the type who like cheap sh*t.”
At that point, I’m just confused. The Statue of Liberty brotha was going out of his way to clown both this Black man and his products as well as me and my taste. It was childish and uncalled for. And so I did what I often do when I deal with children who are behaving poorly.

Police review video of cop striking man outside store
Detroit police officials are reviewing a video that shows an officer striking a shoplifting suspect with a baton during a tussle outside a Detroit store to determine if the use of force was justified.
Police Chief James Craig said he has reviewed both a shaky 4:52 video that was uploaded to YouTube and more comprehensive surveillance footage from the Meijer store on Eight Mile, where the incident occurred about 8:30 p.m. Sunday.
“Preliminarily, it appears the officer’s use of force was proper,” Craig said during a news conference Monday at police headquarters. “But we’re not finished with our investigation yet.”
The 23-year-old suspect was arrested and police are seeking charges of disorderly conduct, and resisting and obstructing. If charged and convicted, he could face up to two years in prison.
Craig said the trouble began when a security guard told the officer, a 39-year veteran who was moonlighting at the store as part of the Police Department’s Secondary Employment program, that the man had shoplifted some items.
“It turned out not to be the case,” Craig said, adding the man’s friend produced receipts for the merchandise he’d been accused of stealing.
The YouTube video begins with a struggle already underway near the store’s exit between the 65-year-old officer, who is assigned to the 11th Precinct, and the suspect.
The struggle takes both men through the automatic door and into the parking lot. Although it’s not clear in the YouTube video, Craig said store surveillance video shows the man pulled the officer into the parking lot.
The cameraman in the YouTube video walks outside the store, where the officer is seen pinning the man to the ground. The man eventually rises to his feet, and the officer follows him further away from the store.
The two men parry for a few minutes in the parking lot, with the officer apparently trying to compel the man to surrender.
“You’re under arrest,” the officer tells the man, who replies, “You have no legal right to arrest me.”
The man pulls the officer down, knocking him off balance, and the officer swings his baton, striking the man in the face.
“Why you hit him?” a bystander asks, and the officer replies, “He’s under arrest.” Another bystander yells, “Not like that.”
A crowd gathers around the officer and suspect, who keeps yelling “no!” or “go!”
The officer eventually leads the man back into the store, apparently by the collar, and the video winds down.
“Any time a police officer uses force, particularly with a side-handle baton, that always looks bad,” Craig said. “It never looks good, although it’s part of our our force continuum.
“This quickly escalated from active resistance to active aggression.”
The struggle drew criticism of the officer’s actions by a community group.
"Hitting people in the head is what led to the death of Malice Green. The officer could've made the arrest without striking him in the head. That's why federal oversight of the DPD should still be in place," said Kenneth Reed of the Coalition Against Police Brutality.
Craig said the suspect has no arrest record, and the officer has been disciplined in the past, including one incident in which he was censured for using force, although he declined to provide further details about the infraction. Craig added it’s not unusual for a cop to have been disciplined after so many years on the job.
“There are some concerns I have with this incident,” Craig said. “I hate to Monday-morning quarterback ... but I would have preferred early on, when this officer saw it was beginning to escalate, that he notify dispatch and requested assistance.”
Craig also said he wanted to find out why store security guards left the scene once tempers began to escalate.
“I understand the frustration if you’re stopped by a police officer and you’ve done nothing wrong,” Craig said. “But my wisest counsel is to just cooperate. There’s a process of making complaints later on. The officer had a right to investigate, based on the information he had at the time.”
Craig said the incident would likely have justified the use of a Taser if the officer had been equipped with one. Tasers have already been approved for use by Detroit police and officials are choosing a vendor, Craig said.
Craig said while the video showing the officer hitting the suspect in the face with his baton is graphic, the officer’s use of force likely was proper — and, he said, the officer accomplished his goal.
“What was telling was when he deployed the single strike to hit the suspect in the face, the suspect’s resistance stopped, and the officer de-escalated the situation, and there was no force after that,” Craig said.

In light of the outrageous revelations of alleged sexual misconduct involving Hollywood super-producer Harvey Weinstein, actor Terry Crews has decided to share his own story.
The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star and former NFL baller revealed in a series of tweets that he was once sexually assaulted while attending a Hollywood event with his wife.
"This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD. Why? Because this kind of thing happened to ME," tweeted Crews on Tuesday afternoon.
Crews, 49, went on to share the whole story of what went down and why he never reported it.
"My wife n I were at a Hollywood function last year n a high level Hollywood executive came over 2 me and groped my privates...Jumping back I said What are you doing?! My wife saw everything n we looked at him like he was crazy. He just grinned like a jerk...
"I was going to kick his ass right then— but I thought twice about how the whole thing would appear...“240 lbs. Black Man stomps out Hollywood Honcho” would be the headline the next day...Only I probably wouldn’t have been able to read it because I WOULD HAVE BEEN IN JAIL. So we left..."
Hear me out.
The NFL is at a crossroads. Some players want to protest by kneeling at the national anthem, but the problem is they could lose their jobs. And they get nice paychecks. A good QB makes $15M per year. A good running back or wide receiver gets about $5-$8M per year.
As much as I think they should kneel during the national anthem, I can understand why they stand; they don't want to lose their jobs.
What if we could get our Black billionaires to support the movement so the athletes don't go broke? So the athletes could kneel for the national anthem and get let go from the team. Then you'd have a bunch of second rate players because the a-list players would have all been fired.
If the Black NFL players could get financial support from an alternative source they could all kneel during the National anthem and shut down the NFL. But unless they have financial support from somewhere else its not gonna happen.
I know people don't read so I'll highlight some of the reasons why women are admitting to cheating as stated in the article for your viewing pleasure.
they found married life incredibly dull and constraining and resented the fact that as women, they felt they consistently did a disproportionate amount of the invisible labor that went into maintaining their lifestyle.
* I gather that these women feel like their husbands are not planning sh*t for the family or for her or helping out as much as she would like, so she goes outside of the household to find the "plans" she's missing out on.
"I think there's an incredible amount of deep resentment for women in America about divisions of labor," said sociologist Lisa Wade when I asked her to comment on this contradiction. "And what social scientists are finding now is that there is a correlation between equal division of labor and better sex."
* Its about time we start telling these women that marriage isn't all its cracked up to be. Only people that want you to get married are your parents and the blood diamond companies.We now tell women that they can have it all, that they can work and have a family and deserve to be sexually satisfied. And then when having it all is miserable and overwhelming or they realize marriage isn't all it's cracked it up to be, maybe having affairs is the new plan B."
* Sheesh.At the time I married, marriage had felt like a panacea; it was a bond that would provide security, love, friendship, stability, and romance -- the chance to have children and nice dishes, to be introduced as someone's wife. It promised to expand my circle of family and improve my credit score, to tether me to something wholesome and give my life meaning.
Could any single relationship not fall short of such expectations?

With the new FMLA law the letting new fathers take off up to 12 weeks (although not all paid) for Paternity leave.
