Cops Killed an Unarmed & Disabled Black Man in Brooklyn on Wednesday.
Cops fatally shot 34-year old Saheed Vassell after, they claimed, he “took a two-handed shooting stance” that was pointed at them. According to the New York Daily News, NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan said police were responding to a call of a man wielding a metal object that around 4:40 p.m.
Upon arriving at the scene, Vassell allegedly aimed the object, which people are said to have thought was a gun, in their direction. “The suspect then took a two-handed shooting stance and pointed an object at the approaching officers,” Monahan stated. Witness 40-year-old Jaccbot Hinds said the responding officers “hopped out of the car” and fired without warning. “It’s almost like they did a hit,” he told the Daily News. “They didn’t say please. They didn’t say put your hands up, nothing.”
Vassell, who was bipolar and had a teenage son, died at Kings County Hospital. The NYPD reportedly refused to say if responding officers gave Vassell a warning.
That Facebook/Cambridge Analytica Fiasco? It’s Pretty Bad.
Turns out more people were affected by March’s data breach than was originally thought. According to CNET, “data from as many as 87 million people was improperly shared with Cambridge Analytica, a digital consultancy with ties to the Trump presidential campaign, a much higher figure than the 50 million accounts previously reported.”
Eighty. Seven. Million. Do you know how much 87 million is? A whole damn lot.
This news comes just two weeks after the social media site claimed to have banned Cambridge Analytica for swiping folks’ data via a third-party quiz app (“thisisyourdigitallife”). Facebook says it will notify people on April 9 if their information was “improperly shared.” You can also no longer search for profiles by a person’s phone number or email, and all apps that request information via login will now need approval.
*Deep distressed sigh.*
