It may have had some lapses here and there, one thing that OnePlus has been doing right is taking its community’s will to heart. The biggest example of that was the Always-on Display (AOD) implementation which, in spite of misgivings, it conceded to the community’s strong wishes. That feature was born out of its IDEAS crowdsourcing campaign earlier this year … Continue reading

Considering Donald Trump is not known for being a reader, it’s probably not a surprise that he can be bad at reading a room.That’s what happened Wednesday when a reporter asked him for his reaction to the decision by a grand jury in Louisville, Kentucky, to not charge the police officers who fatally shot Breonna Taylor in her death.There are many things a president could have said, such as a statement calling for peace while the process continues or an expression of sympathy to Taylor’s family.But Trump used the question as an opportunity to praise himself:“My message is that I love the Black community, and I’ve done more for the Black community than any other president, and I say, with a possible exception of Abraham Lincoln, and I mean that, with opportunity zones and with criminal justice reform, with prison reform, with what we’ve done for historically Black universities, colleges, schools, what we’ve done, nobody’s done more. Abraham Lincoln, let’s give him the nod, but beyond that nobody’s done more.”Then he indicated he hadn’t yet seen the grand jury’s decision. “I heard a decision was just made,” he said, and added he’d comment on it later.The quote wasn’t even unique to the situation. It’s something he frequently says to avoid answering questions about racial justice in America.You can hear Trump attempt to soothe his fragile ego starting just after the 22-minute mark. Trump did give a less self-serving of an answer to another reporter a little later.Instead of praising himself, he praised Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron as “a star” for the way he handled the decision and said he’d be speaking with the Kentucky governor shortly.That segment appears near the 25-minute of the video below. Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old Black emergency medical technician in Louisville, was killed March 13 when three white plainclothes police officers serving a “no-knock” warrant broke into her apartment and met with gunfire from Taylor’s boyfriend, who was injured. The subject of the warrant was not at the address. Taylor, who had been in bed when officers entered her home, was shot multiple times.Taylor’s family settled a $12 million wrongful death suit against the city on Sept. 15 that included a promise of police reforms.One of the three officers, Brett Hankison, was fired. He was indicted Wednesday on a charge related to the endangerment of people in an adjoining apartment.  Related...

A mural of a Black man who died in police custody has been painted opposite a south London police station.Local residents gathered at Lewisham Gateway Project to furnish hoardings with the commemorative piece which was painted by acclaimed street artist Carleen De Sözer.The initiative was organised by anti-racism campaigners Adam Pugh and Sallie Foyeh who both live in the area.Kevin Clarke, 35, told officers “I can’t breathe” as officers placed him into two sets of handcuffs but was “ignored” and then lost consciousness as he was taken to an ambulance, an inquest into his death heard on Monday.He had paranoid schizophrenia and was living at the Jigsaw Project, a residential support service, up until his death on 9 March 2018.Deborah Coles, executive director at human rights charity INQUEST, said the mural is a “really beautiful way of talking about important social and racial justice issues”.“I think what they’re doing is really important; it’s about recognising a life lived but also showing people, through art, that Black people die at the hands of people in the UK. It’s important that debate continues and what a good way to continue it,” Coles told HuffPost UK.“You see Kevin at various stages of his life – from childhood to adulthood – and an inquest is going on about how he lost his life at the hands of police officers.”INQUEST has been supporting Clarke’s family during inquest at Southwark Coroners Court.“It’s a really beautiful way of talking about important social and racial justice issues – and it’s to the credit of everyone involved in this project that they’ve done this,” Coles added.“Especially at a time when the family are going through a heartbreaking and really emotionally difficult process of listening at an inquest to how Kevin died. So this is also for them.”Wendy Clarke, Kevin’s mother, was overwhelmed with emotion over the mural and said she’s speechless.″It means a lot to us, as a family, and the mural will bring about a sense of awareness. There’s too many deaths in police custody and not many people realise the pain and hurt this causes families. “I’m just grateful to everyone who’s been involved with painting this. I’m also happy that it’s right in front of the police station, so they can see it. It’s a beautiful painting – I don’t have words.”A Go Fund Me campaign which raised proceeds towards the mural described Clarke as an active member of the Lewisham community with aspirations to become a football coach.  “Kevin was passionate about helping and supporting many young people in his local area, particularly through sport,” the page read.The move has been strongly opposed by mammoth housing development company Balfour Beatty, HuffPost UK understands.The organisation recently acquired Lewisham Gateway Project in a multimillion pound deal and is building luxury apartments therein.HuffPost UK has approached Balfour Beatty for comment.Clarke would have celebrated his 38th birthday next Sunday.The 35-year-old was in a mental health crisis when he was detained and handcuffed by the police officers in a school playing field.Pc Lee Pidgeon told the inquest that Clarke had begun to get “a bit fidgety” and the use of handcuffs to restrain him was appropriate as he was showing signs of acute behavioural disorder (ABD).Officers placed Clarke in two sets of handcuffs – allegedly due to his size – and in the footage he could be heard groaning, saying “I can’t breathe” and “I’m going to die”. Pc Pidgeon said he had not heard what Clarke said at the time but admitted that in the footage his speech “seems quite clear (and) comprehensible”.When asked by coroner Andrew Harris why Clarke was “ignored” by the officers in attendance, Pc Pidgeon replied “I cannot answer that, sir, I don’t know.”Black people are subject to 16% of use of force by police, despite accounting for just 3% of the population.Further data also shows that the proportion of deaths in police custody of people from Black and minority ethnic groups where restraint is a feature is over two times greater than in other deaths in custody. Related...
