Israeli shelling killed at least 15 Palestinians sheltering in Jabaliya Girls Elementary School in Gaza’s biggest refugee camp on Wednesday, the Health Ministry said.

Some 3,300 Palestinians, including many women and children, were taking refuge in the building in Jabaliya refugee camp when it came under fire around dawn, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) said.

There were blood splattered floors and mattresses inside classrooms and survivors picked through shattered glass and debris for flesh and body parts to bury.

"Children, women and men killed & injured as they slept in place where they should have been safe and protected. They were not. Intolerable." said UNRWA chief Pierre Krahenbuhl on Twitter, adding"This is 6th time one of our @UNRWA schools has been struck. Our staff leading int’l response are being killed. This is a breaking point."

NYPD officer pictured ‘putting seven-months pregnant woman into a chokehold for illegally grilling outside her apartment’

An advocacy group has released images which claim to show an NYPD officer putting a seven-months pregnant woman into a chokehold for illegally grilling on the sidewalk in front of her apartment. 
NYPD officers have been banned from using the chokehold since 1993, but an officer can be seen in the pictures wrapping his arm around 27-year-old Rosan Miller’s neck in the Saturday incident. 
Her young daughter is also in the pictures, watching the arrest unfold.

Illegally grilling on the sidewalk! What a hardened, dangerous criminal! And I bet that little girl now has a very solid grasp on who she can trust and what’s ok to do to women and/or people who are physically weaker than you!

I know someone who thinks this kind of thing is uncommon, but when I see two or three new examples of this every day… fucking ‘law’ enforcement.

Can we please have our security system please check itself because this is getting out of hand
