A shocking video showing a black female Arizona State University professor being manhandled and slammed to the ground by campus police last month for allegedly jaywalking is now drawing heavy criticism and protest online despite the University declaring that the police did not act inappropriately.

A Christian motorcycle club in Jamestown, South Carolina is accusing local police officers of aggressively running them off the road and causing an accident in what was supposed to be a routine traffic stop for running a stop sign.
The incident occurred last weekend, when close to 50 members of the Disciple Christian Motorcycle Club (DCMC) were riding through the small town of Jamestown to attend a fundraiser for the American Diabetes Association. As DCMC's president, James Johnson, told The Post and Courier, the motorcyclists performed a routine biking practice when passing through a stop sign, where two of the bikers wait at the stop sign to watch for oncoming traffic, while the rest of the biking group rides through.
Police watching from close by saw the group of motorcyclists run through the stop sign, and proceeded to pull them over. The bikers present at the scene claim the police aggressively forced them to tumble off their bikes by coming up on them in the left lane. Multiple bikers fell off their bikes as a result, and three had to seek treatment at the nearby hospital for their injuries. more >>

Backers claim that there are more than 800,000 signatures already, which exceeds the 504,000 signatures needed. If passed, the law would reduce the long sentences for minor drug possessions, shoplifting, check forgeries, and other such non-violent felonies to misdemeanors.
