Michigan: 14 year old girl famous in police brutality controversy dies of COVID

VT: Back in 2017, police needed to put her in a car only if they feared she would run into traffic, something done a highway arrests or accidents.  This is police work.  Instead, they pointed guns at her and cuffed her as a potential suspect in a mistaken warrant looking for a woman 4 times her age…and white.  Breonna again?  Almost?

Now she is dead of COVID but when you go to the county website, no deaths of anyone under 60 are listed for that day. How many kids are dying and not being reported? Why are figures for black and Hispanic COVID victims being given us that show 10% higher mortality when, we very very strongly suspect death rates are 30% higher?

Call this part of a sea of anecdotal evidence the White House has put out orders through corrupt HHS to censor the real cost of COVID. Why are the Russians doing the same, pushing the same COVID lies about the US as well? Why are OAN, Newsmax, Breitbart, InfoWars and Fox News parroting Russian propaganda? This is more than anecdotal, we are afraid.

GRAND RAPIDS, MI — A girl who was at the center of a major Grand Rapids police controversy three years ago has died after a two-week battle with coronavirus, family members have confirmed.

Honestie Hodges, 14, tested positive for COVID-19 on Nov. 9, according to a GoFundMe page created by her grandmother, Alisa Niemeyer.

“It is with an extremely heavy heart that I have to tell all of you that my beautiful, sassy, smart loving Granddaughter has gone home to be with Jesus,” Niemeyer wrote in an update Sunday, Nov. 22.

Niemeyer declined to comment further on her granddaughter’s death when contacted by phone Sunday, but asked for prayers for her family.

Hodges’ mother, Whitney Hodges, did not respond to a request for comment by MLive.

In December 2017, a then 11-year-old Honestie was handcuffed at gunpoint by officers and placed in a cruiser as they searched for a suspect in an attempted murder. Hodges, her mother and another relative were just leaving their Grand Rapids home when they encountered police looking for one of their relatives in a stabbing.
