Bully messes with karate champ. [video]

The source video is very, very worth watching. A few things to point out:
The young woman in the dark coat is continually trying to escape from the man. She has spoken to him, she’s pulled away, she’s even tried to walk away before he dragged her back. She hit him as a last resort but it didn’t do anything, he just got more aggressive.
The girl in the white jacket was walking by, recognized that a bad situation was happening, stopped, and intervened. At 0:28 she calls the man out, and continues to call him out until he breaks off attacking the young woman in the dark coat and turns his aggression on her. At which point she defends herself—and then she escorts the young woman in the dark coat safely away.
This is a hero.

Bringing this back.

GIRL POWER

The woman in the white jacket is Olga Ivanova, taekwondo world champion. That kick must have hurt like hell.

Tae Kwon Do Champion. You fucked up, bro.

I do not understand how men are comfortable instigating a physical altercation with their partner in public in broad daylight. Men have no shame, no fear and it’s terrifying.

84yo Asian American victim of NYPD brutality to sue city for $5 million

I blogged earlier this year about the story of Kang Chun Wong, the 84 year old Chinese American man who was brutally beaten by New York City Police Department officers after he was stopped for an alleged incident of jaywalking. Wong, who speaks predominantly Cantonese and Spanish, was walking on the Upper West side when he was stopped by Officer Jeffry Loo at the intersection of 96th and Broadway.

According to the NY Daily News, Officer Loo asked for Wong’s identification, which Wong provided. However, when Loo began to walk away with the ID, Wong — not understanding what was happening — protested. That’s when Loo, along with several officers pushed Wong against the wall of a building and then slammed him to the ground, bloodying his head. Witnesses were horrified, capturing graphic pictures of Wong being handcuffed and taken away.

Wong was eventually charged with jaywalking, along with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, however the Manhattan district attorney’s office decided not to prosecute the case.

Now, Wong — through his attorney Sanford Rubenstein — is suing the city and the NYPD for $5 million dollars.

Early Tuesday morning (IN LESS THAN 6 HOURS), 65 year old Jamila Bibi will be led from the Saskatoon Police detention unit to a plane bound for Pakistan - where she faces persecution for a charge of adultery and threats of being stoned to death by her ex-husband’s family.

Use this form (and email steven.blaney@parl.gc.ca) and the template email below to challenge this decision before she is deported in the morning: https://www.publicsafety.gc.ca/cnt/bt/cntct-frm-eng.aspx

Your Honorable Steven Blaney,

I’m writing in regards to Jamila Bibi, a 65 year old woman who faces deportation from Saskatoon tomorrow morning due to outstanding charges of adultery in her home country, Pakistan. If she returns, it is possible that sh
e will be targeted by her ex-husbands’ family and stoned to death in an honour killing, as is commonly the punishment for female adultery in Pakistan. 

Last week the federal court decided to proceed with the deportation despite the fact that Bibi’s case is currently being processed by the United Nations Office of Human Rights.

I urge you to honour Canada’s obligation to international human rights by respecting the UN’s request to refrain from expelling Bibi while the UN Committee against torture completes its review. 

Yours sincerely,

Columbia student will carry her mattress until her rapist exits school
September 2, 2014

While most students at Columbia University will spend the first day of classes carrying backpacks and books, Emma Sulkowicz will start her semester on Tuesday with a far heavier burden. The senior plans on carrying an extra-long, twin-size mattress across the quad and through each New York City building – to every class, every day – until the man she says raped her moves off campus.

“I was raped in my own bed,” Sulkowicz told me the other day, as she was gearing up to head back to school in this, the year American colleges are finally, supposedly, ready to do something about sexual assault. “I could have taken my pillow, but I want people to see how it weighs down a person to be ignored by the school administration and harassed by police.”

Sulkowicz is one of three women who made complaints to Columbia against the same fellow senior, who was found “not responsible” in all three cases. She also filed a police report, but Sulkowicz was treated abysmally – by the cops, and by a Columbia disciplinary panel so uneducated about the scourge of campus violence that one panelist asked how it was possible to be anally raped without lubrication.

So Sulkowicz joined a federal complaint in April over Columbia’s mishandling of sexual misconduct cases, and she will hoist that mattress on her shoulders as part savvy activism, part performance art. “The administration can end the piece, by expelling him,” she says, “or he can, by leaving campus.”

As painful as I know the constant reminder of attending school with her rapist must be, I’m glad she won’t be the only one forced to remember. I hope the rapist drops out immediately…or better yet, I hope he faces the justice he deserves.
