So let me get this straight: the Ferguson PD took the time to write an overly detailed, 18 page police report for the ALLEGED petty theft of $49 dollars worth of cigars, but they didn’t even fill out an incident report for Darren Wilson shooting Mike Brown dead? A two page (mostly blank) report for a shooting death, and an 18 page report for cigars??? The Ferguson PD didn’t cover Mike Brown’s body, they left Mike Brown’s body out on the street for nearly four hours, they didn’t write a police report at the scene, they immediately launched a campaign to smear Mike Brown posthumously…does any of that sound even remotely legit?  

Let’s review:

1. the Ferguson police didn’t even full out the Mike Brown murder incident report until ten full days after the shooting

2. when they finally got around to filling out the police report, the ONLY info they completed was the name of the victim, the shooter, and the date they filled out the “report”. that’s it. that’s all

3. Missouri has an open “sunshine law” that requires them to make nearly any police reports publicly available immediately, so for over ten days they violated that law too

4. [EDIT] Most importantly let’s never forget what caused this needless death murder - Darren Wilson racially profiled, then stopped, then harassed, then fatally shot Mike Brown 6 times for the “crime” of walking-while-Black, aka jay walking, NOT for alleged petty theft, because at the time Wilson had no idea about any cigars or any alleged theft

Ferguson is a perfect example of a sundown town, and from beating up innocent Black drivers, to repeatedly tear gassing and threatening unarmed protesters to routinely racially profiling and profiting off of Black drivers, Ferguson is showing over and over just how little they truly value Black lives

#Darren Wilson is a dirty cop #The Ferguson PD is corrupt #This is what a police coverup looks like

#ArrestDarrenWilsonNOW

If…IF there’s even just one honest cop in the Ferguson PD, now is the time to step up

James Lopez is a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman) who is trying to raise funding for his primarily hand-drawn short film, Hullabaloo, with hopes of eventually finding a studio to fund a full-length version.

From the film’s IndieGo page:

Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.

In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.

You’re Petting Your Cat All Wrong!

Jackson Galaxy  explains why everything can seem to be going fine and cuddly when your cat suddenly turns mean.

What he calls the “finger nose” actually works great for scratching too, if you go slow and are observant your cat will guide you to where they want skritches, for how long they want them, then where next, just like someone saying “Ohhh, up a little.  A bit  harder.” and will love you for it!

very nice

wish more people realized that cats do not attack for no reason

Don’t let history books tell you big groups of non-black people spearheaded several anti-racism movements when it was actually Jews, not just random people.

50% of civil rights lawyers in the south during the 60s were Jews. We were 1% of the population but 50% of the lawyers fighting for civil rights.

50% of non-black people who went to mississippi in 64 to challenge the Jim Crow laws were Jews. 

Jews have historically done a hell of a lot to advance equality in the US even though we are a tiny, tiny, tiny minority of the population. That’s a legacy to be proud of.

These actions were undertaken even at tremendous risk to jewish communities.  

We also need to remember our people’s legacy and emulate their actions today. It’s not enough to know that the ones who came before us did great things; we must follow their example in our actions in the present day.

I’ll be updating soon with coverage of tonight’s Ferguson town hall, but let me just start by saying that while this meeting was going on, police without name badges were checking license plates in the parking lot. For a town with 34,000 warrants and 21,000 people, this is some BULLSHIT.

‘Hands Up, Don’t Ship!’ Minneapolis UPS Workers Protest Shipments to Missouri Police

amaditalks:

A dozen part-time UPS workers in Minneapolis took protest action on the job August 22, after discovering ties between Missouri law enforcement and a company, Law Enforcement Targets, whose shipments we handle each day.

Some of us removed the company’s packages from trucks that would deliver them to law enforcement. Others, in solidarity, refused to ferry these packages to their intended trailers.

Others posed with a sign reading “#handsupdontship.” The phrase “hands up, don’t shoot” has come to symbolize protest over the police shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed, black 18-year-old in Ferguson, Missouri.

We decided we could not be silent while our work was contributing to the militarized violence that police are directing at Ferguson residents in the aftermath of Brown’s death.

This is high-stakes activism. These workers are at risk losing their jobs for this. Well done, UPS folks, for sticking to your principles.
