Cop handcuffs 11-year-old boy for bouncing basketball, mom says

An overzealous cop slapped handcuffs on an 11-year-old boy who wouldn’t stop bouncing a basketball after a game, the kid’s mom said.

Fatayi Jomoh was bouncing the ball after a game at the Police Athletic League of Jacksonville when an officer repeatedly asked him to stop. He didn’t — and was cuffed, according to Newsweek.

His mom, Bunmi Borisade, said she was in another area of the gym at the time, News4jax reports.

“A little girl came up to me and said, ‘Hey, excuse me. Your son is being arrested for dribbling a basketball.’ I said, ‘You can’t be serious,’” Borisade said.

 

 

“The officer who handcuffed my son looked at me and said, ‘He was was being disrespectful.’ I said, ‘Well, why didn’t you come and tell me? I’m his mom.’”

Borisade said she understands Fatayi might have been “acting out,” but he didn’t deserve to be handcuffed and is now afraid of police, which is the opposite of the league’s mission statement.

She has filed a complaint with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. It is being reviewed by Internal Affairs.

Democrat Detroit Rep. Bettie Cook Scott on Asian opponent: ‘Don’t vote for the ching-chong!’

 

white liberals and their non-white followers love to use racial slurs

 

 

More than a dozen community groups have called on Rep. Bettie Cook Scott (D-Detroit) to apologize for a series of racial slurs sources say she used to describe her primary election opponent, Rep. Stephanie Chang (D-Detroit).

Scott is alleged to have referred to Chang as “ching-chang” and “the ching-chong” to multiple voters outside polling precincts during last Tuesday’s election. She’s also said to have called one of Chang’s campaign volunteers an “immigrant,” saying “you don’t belong here” and “I want you out of my country.”

Chang and Scott were running in the Democratic primary for state Sen. District 1. Chang won the election with 49 percent of the vote; Scott came in third with 11 percent of the vote.

Prof Claims ‘Responsible Fatherhood’ Reinforces ‘Patriarchy’

A feminist professor at California State University-Fresno recently published an article lamenting that federal programs to promote “responsible fatherhood” among vulnerable men in fact perpetuate “patriarchy,” “gender norms,” and “hegemonic masculinity.”

The article, “‘Manning Up’ to Be a Good Father: Hybrid Fatherhood, Masculinity, and U.S. Responsible Fatherhood Policy,” was published in the new issue of Gender and Society by Jennifer Randles, who teaches sociology classes at the California school.

The goal of Randles’ research was to assess the feminist implications of “responsible fatherhood” programs. Such programs began in the 1970s, first received federal funding in 1996, and are currently overseen by the Department of Health and Human Services.

“Studies have shown that involved fathers provide practical support in raising children,” according to the government website, which explains that “children with involved loving fathers are more likely to do well in school, have healthy self-esteem, and exhibit empathy.”

Another Male Feminist Gets #MeToo’d: Shannon Kenevan of ‘Voices for Men’ Forced to Resign for ‘Inappropriate’ Behavior

BOOM!

MENASHA, Wis. (WBAY) - A leader of a men’s group dedicated to raising awareness of sexual assault and improving men’s behavior towards women says he’s remorseful after being forced to resign over his own behavior.

Shannon Kenevan was community engagement leader for Voices of Men.

Goodwill Industries of North Central Wisconsin, which runs the program, says two women in the community reported “behaviors that directly violate the mission, standards and expectations of Voices of Men.”

He was asked to resign immediately.

“The reported actions of our former community engagement leader are not in line with the standards set by our organization and our partners,” Voices of Men leadership team president Tom Berkedal said in a statement.

The organization was not more specific, but on his Facebook page Kenevan posted a lengthy apology, reading in part:

“I am writing this to say that I am no longer with Voices of Men because I’ve sexually harassed women — making them uncomfortable by using sexually suggestive language, being overly flirtatious, and pushing boundaries. I did not intend to cause harm, but the impact was harmful. This was made worse because of my leadership position within Voices of Men — both as someone who should uphold the high standard that Voices of Men stands for, and because I was given a higher level of trust because of that role, which likely gave me more ‘wiggle room’ for bad behavior as positions of power and privilege often do.”

 

Voices of Men was started by four domestic abuse and sexual assault agencies in the Fox Valley in 2007, encouraging men to take a bigger role in preventing domestic abuse. Goodwill NCW took over the program in 2016.

“The Voices of Men mission is to treat domestic abuse and sexual assault as a preventable matter, working to change the everyday attitudes, behaviors and language of boys and young men toward women, and create a culture of safety and dignity,” the statement reads.

In his apology, Kenevan says he developed “blind spots” in his behavior. “I did not see what I was doing as harmful, or maybe I minimized it.”

Kenevan became community engagement leader for Voices of Men in 2015. Before that, he co-founded Harmony Cafe and was Goodwill NCW’s leader of diversity and inclusion.
