Ask me anything   Submit   I'm fighting off some physical illness, lonely. Moved to Columbus for OSU. One unique thing about me, I really dig West African music. Other music on here too. Sex. Women. Social justice. Funnies. Politics. Pretty shit. Emotional shit. Real hard of hearing. Jewish white dude. I don't want to show my face, in case someplace I ever apply to uses facial recognition software (I've heard it's widely available, laugh). ...:( :) probably quite far from gorgeous, do want to show it though :). I tag the pictures without my face "me" (getting over like being anorexic, something like that, intend to improve my body, start buying clothes as my size stabilizes..., :) gonna post more eventually). Trigger warning: porn (I try and tag stuff that's straight porn). And, I forgot, I'm some kind of like vegan. I don't see anything wrong with eating animals, I see a lot wrong with the way our society raises foodstock animals. Maybe it's being hypocritical, dunno, but I'll eat stuff I wouldn't buy if someone is trying to share their food, a meal, with me. As far as the relative lack of pictures of white women, white skin just doesn't seem to look as good IN PHOTOS. I like white bodies plenty. now 32. Naw, it's also that I don't prefer thin, pointy noses when it comes to women; also, many white people, myself included, have skin that is fuckin translucent, shit don't look good. Seeing veins, got red splotches all about.

A police officer shot and killed an unarmed, mentally challenged black man in Los Angeles on Monday, his family said.

Family members identified Ezell Ford, 25, as the man the cop killed on the 200 block of West 65th St. about 8:20 p.m. And one eyewitness says the officer yelled “shoot him” before killing the man in the street.

His mother, Tritobia Ford, said the shooting was unjustified and that her son was complying with the officer’s orders, according to local media.

"My heart is so heavy," she told KTLA. ”My son was a good kid. He didn’t deserve to die the way he did.”

Ford, she said, was lying on the ground when the officer shot him in the back three times.

A man claiming to be Ford’s cousin told the station he witnessed the incident and that there was no justification for excessive force.

"They laid him out and for whatever reason, they shot him in the back, knowing, mentally, he has complications. Every officer in this area, from the Newton Division, knows that — that this child has mental problems," he told KTLA.

And another eyewitness told the Huffington Post that an officer screamed out “shoot him” before the unarmed Ford was filled with three slugs.

"He was mentally challenged,” Lerman said. “This is not the person that’s lurking behind a corner with a gun. He’s not a gangbanger. Walking down a city street, a citizen of Los Angeles, walking down a city street unarmed at 8:00 on a Monday night.”

Anonymous asked: About the Ferguson thing: The cop was severely beaten and even suffered a major eye injury, which many people think caused him to miss Mike Brown so many times. And there are also many witnesses who claim to have seen Mike Brown rush back at the cop after assaulting him in the car (and I know this is pretty much irrelevant, but just to let you know, some of those witnesses were black). So can't you at least give this guy the presumption of innocence please?


Answer:

On the right is the image right-wing pundit Jim Hoft used to prove that Darren Wilson had an orbital blowout fracture. On the left is a CT scan of a blowout fracture, taken at the University of Iowa in 2008 and used on a website explaining what orbital blowout fractures are. If you look carefully or casually or at all in any way using eyeballs of any kind, you’ll notice that they’re the same image, except that the one on the right has been edited so that it no longer includes the date or location. That’s because the story was made up.

In video taken after the shooting, you can see Wilson walking around uninjured. His eye socket is not busted, nor is his jaw (an addition to the story I’ve seen since it’s been on its telephone game journey across the internet). In addition, Michael Brown’s autopsy showed no sign of struggle. And the claim that over a dozen witnesses agreed with the cop’s story were fabricated, made up by either police or a local journalist who has been on leave since March and is not reporting officially or unofficially on the situation in Ferguson. None of the actual witnesses (the ones who exist and are not made up) agree with the cop’s story.

Given that everything so far in defense of Wilson has been made up, police have been intentionally spreading lies to make Wilson look better and Brown look worse, and they deleted Wilson’s social media presence and helped him flee town before revealing his identity (making it impossible to know what he may have said about the case or comments he may have made about other subjects that could paint a picture of who he is as a person), it’s pretty hard to presume they’re not hiding something.

Wilson’s story was not even from Wilson himself. It was told 3rd hand by this “Josie”, which makes it hearsay. But hearsay out of a white woman’s mouth is the only thing more credible than actual witnesses I guess…

The War on Cameras →

I could not believe this.

This incident where the cops had gotten physical with a female investigative reporter and claimed that seven dashboard cameras weren’t working at the time is amazing.

(And check out what this news radio station mentions about this case I mention about: On Friday, a jury awarded McCarren $5,000 — far less than the $500,000 she was seeking. The two sides had been close to a settlement, but could not come to terms on a confidentiality agreement. (http://www.wtop.com/25/1577281/Jury-Cops-used-excessive-force-against-reporter-#ixzz3Bnmu6V00)

The fuck the police department want to keep anyone from talking about the case for, would be seeking a confidentiality agreement?

Distressing Video Captures EXACTLY How Cops Treat Black People

I had to reblog this again because it just reduced me to tears. 

As most of you know, I am an attorney. And I am an attorney licensed in Minnesota. This is the state where I took an oath last year to uphold state and federal laws and to protect the rights of the citizens.

It PAINS me to see this. To see these unjust cops who I for all intensive purposes, have to stand along side. When they are abusing EVERY SINGLE OUNCE of POWER. Minneapolis/St. Paul have BEEN a war zone. I’m ashamed. I’m embarrassed.

Not all officers are bad. Please don’t let that be the take away. But police brutality is VERY FUCKING REAL. 

Watch this. If this doesn’t move you, if this doesn’t make you cry out in agony and want to change the world, I don’t know what will.
