I leave a lot out when I tell the truth

"I told him about the way they get to know you. Not the way people do, the way they flatter you by wanting to know every last thing about you, only it isn't a compliment, it is just efficient, a person getting more quickly to the end of you. Correction - dogs do want to know every last thing about you. They take in the smell of you, they know from the next room, asleep, when a mood settles over you. The difference is there's not an end to it.” ― Amy Hempel

About you mcdonalds looting post: You can't justify breaking into someone's establishment and looting it because they were helping out protestors with the goods they stole. No one is telling the loot- protestors to go out and practice their first amendment right. But if they want to (to which they rightfully have the right to) they aren't justified to go and destroy property and loot others work. It's sickening what's going on over there and worst yet, the naiivety of "supporters" for the cause

kingjaffejoffer:

You find it sickening that people support breaking into a McDonalds to get milk to help out people who were tear gassed.

I find it sickening that people like you hide behind the disingenuous care for local businesses and focus on poor McDonalds having their window broken instead of FAR more egregious rights violations and abuse of power that is going on with law enforcement. 

Journalists have been arrested for no reason. 
Cops are walking around with no badges or name tags.
Kids have been purposely tear gassed.
People standing on their OWN PROPERTY have been shot with rubber bullets and tear gassed. 

You ignore all of that to focus on some fucking milk from McDonalds because you can’t find any other way to oppose protests in regards to a Black teenager being murdered without looking like a bigot. 

That wack ass bullshit logic doesn’t fly around here.

Kym Worthy, the prosecutor who just brought charges against Theodore P. Wafer for shooting Renisha McBride, has a long history of being a total badass:
Prosecutor leads effort to test long-abandoned rape kits, brings justice to victims

Kym Worthy, the prosecutor, the BLACK WOMAN, who ensured that Renisha McBride’s murderer was brought to justice, who was PIVOTAL in ensuring that it didn’t become another George Zimmerman debacle, has a history of being an incredible advocate for actual justice, rather than the facsimile justice (injustice) America usually doles out to marginalized groups.


she don’t play….if what happened in Mo. happened here….that cop would be charged already

Booooooo

There was one exact moment, in fact, when I knew for sure that Al Gore would never be President of the United States, no matter what the experts were saying — and that was when the whole Bush family suddenly appeared on TV and openly scoffed at the idea of Gore winning Florida. It was Nonsense, said the Candidate, Utter nonsense… Anybody who believed Bush had lost Florida was a Fool. The Media, all of them, were Liars & Dunces or treacherous whores trying to sabotage his victory… Here was the whole bloody Family laughing & hooting & sneering at the dumbness of the whole world on National TV. The old man was the real tip-off. The leer on his face was almost frightening. It was like looking into the eyes of a tall hyena with a living sheep in its mouth. The sheep’s fate was sealed, and so was Al Gore’s. (Hunter s. Thompson “The Fix is in”)

If you’re wondering what “rubber bullets” are and what they look like this is it. This is what Ferguson police are shooting and the peaceful protesters. This is what’s making gaping holes inside of the protesters.

Graphic Images: The Mishandling Of Mike Brown’s Body After He Was Killed

There should not only be a federal investigation into the shooting and murder of Michael Brown but also a federal probe into the police department in Ferguson.

After Mike Brown was shot and killed, there were no ambulances or paramedics presented at the sight nor were they called in. That would seem very odd and strange, since it is not a proper procedure when something like that goes down.

In this video, which is graphic. It shows Mike Brown’s body laying on the streets and there are no paramedics, not even one ambulance around to evaluate the body or offer any sort of medical assistant. The police department in Ferguson, got Mike Brown’s body on a stretcher and loaded it into one of their police cruisers. This is not the proper way to handle a body. 

There should be a full investigation not only about the shooting and murder of Michael Brown but also, the mishandling of his body.

I’m only sharing tweets for those who are not on twitter and can’t see how passionate and outraged journalists are as they tweet from #Ferguson.
