Police reform now. Intimidation and instigation are not perks of the job.

A police officer in Georgia admits to kicking an African-American woman in the stomach while she was 9 months pregnant. No charges were filed against the officer.
Raven Dozier was 9 months pregnant when Dekalb County police officer Jared Wheeler kicked her in the stomach with his boots. She was forced to get a c-section. Thankfully, the baby survived. In an “internal investigation” Dekalb County police found that officer Wheeler did nothing wrong and followed police procedure.
And he’s completely unapologetic about it as well and no justice was served. People need to realize that police brutality is literally a daily reality for black people and that it affects black women as well.

In 1962, the U.S. Army briefly had the idea that they should use a cheesecake spokesmodel to recruit young men into service. That same year, future cult film & TV actress Francine York became Miss All-American Girl U.S. Army Recruiter. Her mission: to provide autographed pin-up photos to a “Valley group of Army inductees called the Buddy Group,” be their pen pal, give them a Hollywood studio tour and to visit them at Ft. Ord while they were in training. The Buddy Group in the picture is identified (left to right) by the Los Angeles Public Library as Jerry Williams, Reseda;Jim Szeredy, Pacoima; Sgt. Leslie F. Zickefoose Jr., North Hollywood recruiter; John Kruse, North Hollywood, and Richard Eckols, San Fernando. (LAPL)
As for Francine York’s Hollywood career—well, if you watched TV in the 1960s, you definitely saw her. She was in Batman; Lost in Space; Burke’s Law; General Hospital; Wild, Wild West; Bewitched, etc.
