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

Be Very Careful When Traveling in Berrien County

A report has just come in from two men traveling on I-94 in Berrien County who were stopped by a county sheriff's deputy. When the driver informed the deputy that he was traveling under the speed limit, the deputy said, "Oh, then you were weaving." When the driver denied weaving, things kept happening: the vehicle was searched and damaged - lining was torn out of vehicle; another deputy and a state policeman were called to the scene; $100 dollars was confiscated from the driver's wallet ("It's for bond, since you might be spending the weekend in jail," is what the deputy said.) The two men were in court for three days and were able to see the Berrien County Court in it's full glory, up front and personal: all white juries convicting one black person after another, day after day. Lives and families continue to be torn apart and devastated. That's all part of the many-decade long plan in the courthouse in St. Joseph, Michigan. As more details are known about the two gentlemen, more will be reported here.

A Benton Harbor Police officer was at the scene of a domestic violence dispute. While trying to remedy the situation, he was jumped and beaten. Multiple ribs were fractured. This was a WHITE cop beaten by BLACK citizens, and the charges the officer had brought up against his assailants were dropped. Now tell me that the court system is racist against black people.

You’re not entitled to the entire facts in the basic posting. Just the 5% of the “facts” that BANCO bases their claim. BANCO would never share the entire truth, as that would ruin the fantasy.

Anyone click on the video link of Ed? Aside from the slurring of words, and the term "grass root" (singular, not plural), its almost inpenetrable gibberish. He jumps around and puts random thoughts together that he quickly confuses himself. This guy is "whack."

I reviewed all four video postings. In one video he was going to have his wife read a scripture and then he moved on to be bragging on his organizational skills and giving his secular discourse. For a reverend, he sure put God in last place. According to him, Exodus 20:17 does not apply to the people under his verbal control and they agreed enthusiastically. Some how the attendees want something for nothing and he is there to deliver. This man can’t even have two pair of glasses (one for his wife and one for himself) as he claims so how is he going to deliver jobs to Benton Harbor? As he said, there was only one Black-American (Mayor) and then eight half Americans/half Africans (the Commissioners) that weren't supporting HIS decisions for Benton Harbor and HE is the wise one and they are the fools of Whirlpool. HIS form of local democracy is…He’s in charge, he makes the decisions, and no one has the right to challenge him. Sounds like a dictator to me.
