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

More Benton Harbor lives ruined - Poverty (ie, no jobs) has always been main cause of "crime" - Keep jobs out of BH, the easier to lock people up

judging by the total lack of activity anymore on this blog, pretty obvious nobody cares anymore. Ed and his whole thing are old news.

This is for the person "anonymous" who said to let Benton Harbor self-destruct~~~

Your statement exemplifies what is wrong in Benton Harbor and What is wrong with this country and it is people like you, the individualistic, selfich and greedy ...that needs to be put away.

I am a white woman who just moved here from out of state....One of my offices is in Benton Harbor ( a new job ) and when I saw that bridge.....between st. Joes and Benton Harbor

I am disgusted. I am appalled. It makes me want to cry~~to see this community left to rot.

It is not there fault! All these assholes that act like the African American Communities brought it upon themselves~~~that is completely ridiculious!

try that one thing...you know....called REading! Educate yourselves! Segregation ended 30 years ago, oppression and racism is still a prevalant disease...Inequality is not an accident ! That bridge between St. Joe and Benton Harbor is a symbol to mirror the way our society operates.

Benton Harbor needs help from the outside..what is wrong with the cities surrounding Benton Harbor!!!!! You are letting those people suffer! It disgusts me completely.

from a sociological perspective ( facts )Where there is poverty there is crime. So Everyone ( always ignorant white people )

say black communites has more crime becuase they are a culture that is predisposed to act as criminals.....NO!

These are opressed people that STATISTICALLY still do not have equal opportunites in america.
I'm talking about numbers~not just my personal opinion.

They were pushed to the same poverty induced regions~~just like the Native Americans...and then left to deteriorate.

It is not an accident that minorites are in poverty. That was systemic and purposeful placement by the white men that have had power over this country for all of these years...

So For those of you that want to just let "Benton Harbor Self-destruct "

You are ignorant and not educated to the least. You are a disgrace to what this country even stands for.

This is why I wept when barack Obama became president.

Now my daughter who is also white ( which shouldn't even matter! )
Will not have to know the same racism and inequality that I have had to experience in my life. We are one step closer to all being brothers and sisters..... .

This is what this country says it represents but doesn't...

This is why Benton rabor is the way it is...that is why New orleans was left to drown....

these are the facts. .. ..

If you don't agree ..

then you need to start reading a little more.

The numbers are the proof, our history books are the proof.

So, to you anonymous who wants to, "leave Benton Harbor to self-desctruct"

I feel sorry for you ~~
You obviously do not have the capacity to understand anything outside of the little box you have constructed around yourself.
