June 17, 2019 Phoenix Mayor Apologises After US Police Threaten To Shoot Black Family

Phoenix Mayor Apologises After US Police Threaten To Shoot Black Family

The mayor of the US city of Phoenix has apologised after a video allegedly showing police threatening to shoot a black family went viral.

Officers were responding to an alleged shoplifting incident last month when the video was recorded.

The parents claim they did not notice that their four-year-old daughter had taken a doll from a Dollar Store.

Mayor Kate Gallego said the officers’ actions were “completely inappropriate and clearly unprofessional”.

In the video, officers can be seen shouting at the family to get out of their vehicle before threatening to shoot them.

A woman, Iesha Harper, can then be seen emerging from the car with two young children. The children are handed to a bystander and Ms Harper is arrested.

The footage also shows another man, Dravon Ames, being kicked in the legs as he is handcuffed by an officer.

Ms Gallego said in a statement: “There is no situation in which this behaviour is ever close to acceptable. As a mother myself, seeing these children placed in such a terrifying situation is beyond upsetting.

“I am deeply sorry for what this family went through and I apologise to our community.”

She said that the city was speeding up the implementation of body-worn cameras. A community meeting about the incident will also be held on Tuesday.

Ms Harper, who is pregnant, told CNN: “I really thought he was going to shoot me in front of the kids.”

She said that she gave her two children to a bystander as she “didn’t trust the police”.

Phoenix police chief Jeri Williams said on local news that she was “sorry this incident happened” and that it was being investigated.

The officers involved have been assigned desk duty while the investigation takes place.

The project was produced by Da Beatminerz and will include contributions from Method Man, Smif N Wessun, and Rockness Monsta. 

“If you only knew how good it feels to be doing this for the love. Much respect to hip-hop for having Black Moon in the cypher. It’s been a long time” Buckshot told Complex. “It was so dope working with my crew on this album. Unlike a lot of albums today, we recorded the album together in the same studio” Evil Dee continued. “Mr. Walt & I came with our Beatminerz sound (heavy bass and drums) representing that boom bap. Buck & 5 came with the ill rhymes. Mixing the album was so dope. We wanted to bring back it back to the 90’s with our analog/digital mixing process. Rise Of Da Moon represents Black Moon’s legacy to the fullest.””It was so dope working with my crew on this album.

Nike Air Max 270 React “Black & White” Drops Next Month: Detailed Images

Nike’s latest sneaker is getting a lowkey colorway.

Ever since Nike unveiled the Nike Air Max 270 React, it seems as though we’ve only been seeing vibrant colorways of the hybrid sneaker. For the uninitiated, the shoe has a similar silhouette to the Air Max 270 except it features a reworked upper and it even features React technology in the front part of the midsole. It’s an interesting look that certainly plays well to the strengths of colorful models that will be big hits this summer. While Nike has been tempted to go with wild colorways, they still understand how important it is to have a more basic version to help introduce people to the sneaker.

The latest model that has been unveiled is a simple black and white model which will appeal to those looking for a basic shoe for the summer that will go with any outfit. The upper has a mixture of black and static materials while the Nike swoosh comes in a simplistic white. From there, the React portion of the midsole is white while the Air Max unit on the back is pitch black.

If you’re looking to cop this latest colorway of the Air Max 270 React, it will be available on July 3rd for $150 USD, according to Sneaker News.
