The Phonesavahs’ attorney also says an independent investigation showed authorities used faulty information to get a search warrant.

In June, Habersham County’s sheriff said a confidential informant told them he had bought drugs at the home. But they didn’t think any children lived there.

The SWAT team did not find the person it was looking for in the home. An investigation is underway into the handling of the case. 

The country is only concerned about non-violence if it seems that [black people are] going to get violent.
It’s not worried about non-violence if it’s some Alabama sheriff.

"You were born where you were born and faced the future that you faced because you were black and for no other reason. The limits of your ambition were, thus, expected to be set forever. You were born into a society which spelled out with brutal clarity, and in as many ways as possible, that you were a worthless human being. You were not expected to aspire to excellence: you were expected to make peace with mediocrity…" - James Baldwin The Fire Next Time

This really is every representation debate in sci-fi and fantasy ever.

"We can’t have people of color in this story - its in the middle ages."

Imagining dragons and elves and hobbits is fine, but imagining a world not inhabited entirely by white people? That would be unrealistic.

True that
