Rev. Pinkney Arrested AGAIN, supporters: Lynn Stewart, Voice Of Detroit, EXPOSED,

What's really happening to the people of Benton Harbor:
The thrust [of the Berrien county courthouse] is to physically remove and destroy families through the use
of the criminal justice system. Every person they can put in jail; every person whose voting rights they can
revoke with a felony conviction; every person they can cause to lose their job by putting them on probation;
every person they can cause to lose the ability to pay for basic necessities through imposing ruinous court
costs and probation is all part of the process. In the 1960s, it was called Negro removal. In Bosnia, it was
called ethnic cleansing. It could be called genocide, the removal of the minority population for the purpose
of redevelopment of the land. That’s what’s happening in Benton Harbor and the foremost leader
of the resistance is Rev. Edward Pinkney. --Civil rights attorney, Hugh "Buck" Davis

Whirlpool: Public Opinion Be Damned



Don Campbell / H-P staff
A crew from Gelock Heavy Movers of Grand Rapids works to put a 190-plank bridge in place connecting Benton Harbor and St. Joseph over the Paw Paw River north of Whitwam Drive. The bridge will serve as the cart path between holes 2 and 3 of the Harbor Shores golf course and serve as a link to parts of the expanded Jean Klock Park trail system.

I'd like to golf with Ed Pinkney after he is done serving his sentence. What is his handicap (for golf)?
