The prisoner defiantly stares down Heinrich Himmler, Hitler’s right-hand-man, who was responsible for the Holocaust. Greasley’s confrontation with Himmler took place during an inspection of the camp he was confined to. The inmates were ordered to remain seated, but Greasley refused. Horace Greasley also escaped the death camp, but sneaked back in to rescue a German woman whom he had fallen in love with.
this is amazing
Wait it gets better, he escaped from the camp 200 times to meet with the woman he was in love with and returned after every time because there was no other place to go to. He also wrote an autobiography omfg this dude is seriously awesome

I keep seeing cartoons like this and they don’t sit well with me. The militarization of the police is a major problem, but these cartoons give a false sense of what the situation was like before police forces became militarized. The old cops prior to being militarized were still brutalizing Black people. Most of the cops who have assaulted and killed Black people were dressed closer to 1965’s Barney Fife than 2014’s police commando. It’s not about the gear and weapons they have. Of course, this isn’t to brush aside our concern of their militarization, but this problem has always been there. The problem is their anti-Black mentality in their policing. Lest we forget, officer Daniel Pantaleo choked Eric Garner to death in broad daylight while wearing a t-shirt and some shorts. He looked like he was going on vacation. He wasn’t dressed in “riot gear”. Pantaleo remains a free man.
So while we should be deeply concerned about the militarization of the police, the cops dressed like 1965 Mayberry officers were and are terrorizing Black people. Mayberry was for white people and the Andy Griffith show was for television. That wasn’t reality. Certainly not a reality for Black people. Outside Mayberry and in the real 1965, the police were beating, hosing down, sicking attack dogs on and killing Black people. They weren’t militarized, but that didn’t stop them from putting the heel of their boots on the necks of Black people. This isn’t brand new and the mentality hasn’t changed. They just changed clothes and acquired better equipment to brutalize Black people with. They have better weapons and equipment now, but it’s the same fight. The 1965 Mayberry officer will still shoot an unarmed Black person and they will get away with it because Black life is cheap and expendable in the system of white supremacy.
^ ALL of this!
Every single word of it
This is how the police in the USA handle someone who is “resisting”. Notice his “resistance”.
The eagerness with which the rotund cop scampered in to tase the unarmed black man with his hands in the air further serves to demonstrate how so many cops join the force for power-tripping opportunities to dish out abuse just like this.
These fucking pigs will do this shit every day, so much to the point that they have it burned in their head that they’re doing the right thing, We either need to kill them all or have them sent from our country with treason, These fucking animals don’t care about us, they only care about manipulating crime statistics and raking in revenue.
