sunvapor asks: What the fucks happening in Ferguson?

wocinsolidarity:

clehmentine:

Alright, i’m gonna sit down and basically explain the situation in this ask so everyone of my followers knows why i’m so pissed.

Michael Brown, a 17 - 18 year old african american boy was unlawfully shot (8-10 times supposedly) by police in St Louis, Missouri on saturday, august 9th, 2014. He was unarmed, and had done nothing to attract suspicion other than the fact that he was black. His body was left in the street for 4 hours. (EDIT: i’ve discovered that the Brown family wishes for any and all photos of Michael lying in the streets to be removed. please respect this and do so)

There are several claims from witnesses (see: Dorian Johnson’s account and video [HIGHLY RECOMMEND READING UP ON HIS ACCOUNT, ITS VERY SPECIFIC] — Brown’s friend who experienced the situation first hand, La’Toya Cash and Phillip Walker— Ferguson residents nearby the incident),  that fall together in generally close claims. However, the only one who’s claim seems out of place is the police officer’s who shot Brown. Who, by the way, is put off on paid administrative leave AND who’s name remained under anonymity for his safety (However, attorney Benjamin Crump is looking for a way to force release his name). He claims that Brown began to wrestle the officer for his gun and tried attacking him after he told Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson (22) to “get the f*ck on the sidewalk”.

According to Johnson, after a minor confrontation on the officer’s part where he grabbed Brown by the neck and then by the shirt, the officer pulled his gun on Brown and shot him at point blank range on the right side of his body. Brown and Johnson were able to get away briefly and started running. However, Brown was shot in the back, supposedly disabling him from getting very far. He turned around with his arms in the air and said “I don’t have a gun, stop shooting!” By this point, Brown and the officer were face to face as the cop shot him several times in the face and chest until he was finally dead. Johnson ran to his apartment and by the sound of his account, seemingly had some sort of panic attack. Later he emerged from his home to see Brown still laying in the streets. People were gathered with their cellphones, screaming at the police.

According to msnbc, the police refuse to interview Johnson at all, despite his amazing courage to come forward. They didn’t wanna hear it. They only listened to the cop’s account of it all and were vague with the media on what they thought happened. They’ve also refused to commit to a timeline in releasing autopsy results and other investigation information.

Numerous rumors are sweeping around such as Brown stealing candy from a QuickTrip, the store he emerged from calling the cops on him, Brown reaching for a gun, Brown attacking the cop first, ect. But these have all been debunked. (I know a lot of these have been debunked, but im having a hard time finding sources. if anyone could help out and link some legit ones id be SO grateful)

The event in and of itself was terrible, but now it has escalated beyond belief. Around 100 or more people, mostly black, went to the police station to protest peacefully. Things quickly turned bad as martial law got involved and authorities were bringing in K9s, tanks, heavy artillery, ect. The heavy police presence only made things worse as riots began to break out and looting and vandalism started. [ x ] [ x ] [ x ]

Now, as of very recently, the media has been banned from Ferguson. There is also a No-Fly zone above Ferguson for the reason of “ TO PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTIVITIES ” as said on the Federal Aviation Commission’s website. Cop cars are lined up on the borders to prevent people from entering/leaving. Media outlets are being threatened with arrest. It completely violates our amendments and everything.

It’s becoming increasingly scary and difficult to find out whats going on over there. I’m afraid this is all the information I have, though. If anybody else knows anything about the situation, please feel free to add on or correct any mistakes i’ve made as i’m no expert on writing these things.

And as a personal favor, i’d really appreciate anyone to give this a reblog in order to spread the word. I think it’s a shame that this is going on in our own country yet so few people know about it. Help me make this topic huge and get this as much attention as possible.

PLEASE SHARE!!! EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON.

reblog if u love me like if u wanna hug me

you’re cute (lovely) & i want to see

a huge sanity-saving thing for me has been, making myself feel really cute & pretty & good & taking pictures of that. it has helped me, for years. & i see in pictures of ppl i love on here, that same expression, this like.. ‘look at me’ pose and vibe & a lot of us have been told, don’t show off, don’t be proud, don’t feel too good. a lot of us have been punished by the world in various shitty ways for trying to.

so, any of you, all of you, anyone! if you have or take a picture of you in that moment, where you just fucking love how you look and it’s like coming out of your pores (or, where you love how you look at all, but at any level that is new and exciting for you), please send it to me. you can send me a link via fanmail, you can email it to lifeinsideamusicbox@gmail.com, you can do whatever will work. include any text you want me to include, & how you want to be identified. i’m gonna think up a really good tag, & hopefully collect images of wonderful people having my favorite feeling.

thank you for reading, & please reblog if you like this idea!!

✨💕💗💖💞💫

people keep saying the bewildering or theoretically bewildering thing about Robin Williams’ suicide is, how could someone who seemed so happy, be so miserable? but that doesn’t seem bewildering to me at all. that seems obvious. outward behavior means nothing to internal experience. nothing. sometimes the two correlate but just as often they don’t, so it means nothing.

what’s bewildering to me, and subsequently terrifying, is how someone with such clear and obvious value could believe that their life is not worth continuing. how such success and validation and resource and, so many solid, solid things, could do NOTHING to ground, to solidify, to fill the void of emptiness and despair.

but, it’s not really bewildering. it’s the sick fear that lives in the bottom of your stomach and eats away at you when you try to sleep. it’s the thing you’re trying to escape from, when you distract and numb your mind. the knowledge that nothing, nothing will ever be enough.

there is no warding it off, and there are no guarantees. there’s trying to survive, and there’s gambling, there’s fighting a mind that wants to destroy you. but there’s no safety. there’s no end game where you get to be okay.
