EXCLUSIVE: 'We prepare to stop these murders by any means necessary.' Black Lives Matter leader declares war on police and group is 'training our people to defend our communities' in Black Panther style armed 'patrols'
A Black Lives Matter leader has declared war on the police and plans to release a blueprint for change that involves Black Panther style armed 'patrols' monitoring the behavior of officers on the streets, DailyMailTV can reveal.
Hawk Newsome, Chairman of BLM's Greater New York chapter, says the black rights group is 'mobilizing' its base and aims to develop a highly-trained 'military' arm to challenge police brutality head on.
In an exclusive interview, Newsome says the BLM movement has marched for years to wake people up to the realities of police brutality and oppression.
And he believes that since the tragic death of George Floyd - who died after his neck was pinned under the knee of white police officer Derek Chauvin during an arrest on Memorial Day in Minneapolis - people have finally awoken.
'We want liberation. We want the power to determine our own destiny. We want freedom from an oppressive government, and we want the immediate end of government sanctioned murder by the police.
'And we prepare to stop these government sanctioned murders by any means necessary.
'We are preparing and training our people to defend our communities.'
Tanzanian Official Banned From U.S. for Antigay Witch Hunt
A Tanzanian official has been barred from entry into the United States due to his attacks on the LGBTQ community.
Paul Christian Makonda, the regional commissioner of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania's economic capital, launched a state-sanctioned witch hunt of gay people in 2018. In this campaign, Makonda urged all citizens to report "homosexual behavior" and created a surveillance team to track down gay people and arrest them.
Under a law dating from when Tanzania was a British colony, sexual acts between men carry a maximum sentence of life in prison. Even though antigay rhetoric has been abundant in Tanzania for some time, it has ramped up since the 2015 election of noted homophobe John Magufuli as president; he once said that even cows condemn gay sex.

The Supreme Court will hear 2 major cases about when religious schools can ignore civil rights laws
The Supreme Court announced on Wednesday that it would hear a pair of cases concerning the “ministerial exemption” to employment discrimination laws.

Texas Gov. Celebrates Signing Antigay Legislation With Chick-fil-A
Last month, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed what was dubbed the essentially anti-LGBTQ "Save Chick-fil-A" bill into law. If it weren’t enough that Abbott signed the bill over a month ago, late last week he thumbed his nose at LGBTQ people even more and participated in a TV ceremony celebrating the bill’s signing while he and his team were surrounded by Chick-fil-A food and beverages. He then tweeted the moment out to his supporters.
“No business should be discriminated against simply because its owners donate to a church, the Salvation Army, or other religious organization,” Abbott said.
“No business should lose a government contract because of their religious beliefs. The save Chick-fil-A legislation that I’m about to sign is a victory for religious freedom in Texas.”

Franci Neely, a Houston socialite and the ex-wife of Astros owner Jim Crane, was recorded harassing a black family for taking photos on a scenic boulevard in celebration of their daughter's first birthday. Neely had her unleashed Pomeranian with her, and zero shoes.

However, as the Allens were photographing their daughter, Franci Neely became angered that they were blocking the sidewalk. In a now-viral video, the barefoot Neely is seen with her leash-less dog, approaching the family and screaming at them for taking pictures on the esplanade. According to Kelyn, Neely passed several groups similarly taking photos to approach Kelyn and her family, yelling, "You are trampling the grass that we pay for."
