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

Developers = Earth's Destroyers

John Madill / H-P staff

Piles of torn up boardwalk and trees are seen at Jean Klock Park on Friday. Work has been suspended while a U.S. District Court judge decides whether a restraining order should be granted to halt construction until a lawsuit filed by Protect Jean Klock Park over lease of that piece of the parkland has been ruled on.

Why would the Whirlpool newspaper take such horrifying and mind-numbing photographs of destruction? Since Whirlpool is in control of the paper, it makes no sense they would allow this to printed.

At first I thought I was looking at Broadway, near Empire, in Benton Harbor. Then I realized that there wasn't enough trash lying around and gang graffiti to be that location.

I was just thinking how nice the area was starting to look.
