“Nicki features twerking girls in her Anaconda video and people call it “pornographic and inappropriate” but Taylor Swift uses black girl’s asses as props and people see it as ~quirky and cute~ I’m so sick of this earth”—Submitted by Anonymous
Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.
The most common symptoms are bruising, tenderness and swelling around the eye; redness of the eye; double vision, ordiplopia (seeing two images at the same time); numbness of the cheek, nose or teeth; nose bleeds (epistaxis) [See figure 1].
Symptoms that typically indicate a more serious injury are pain on eye movement, double vision, air under the skin around the eye, and numbness of the cheek/mouth/nose on the side of the injury. Severe trauma may cause facial bone fractures, injury to the eye itself, and injuries to the skull/brain.
For suffering a major injury, Officer Wilson was demonstrating no pain, discomfort, nor was an ambulance called for the treatment of the potentially life threatening injury.
Just because a story fits the narrative you want does not mean you should run with it. The right-wing wants Michael Brown to be a bad guy, so they saw this and went with it, never questioning the validity.
Thank you to LGF for helping to keep the blogosphere honest, and shame on TGP for running a fake story.
The protesters were all unarmed, which they asserted repeatedly, and were clearly exasperated by the cop’s overreach.
As protests continued on Tuesday night in Ferguson, Missouri following the shooting death of Michael Brown, a Ferguson police officer was caught pointing an automatic rifle at unarmed protesters and journalists and threatening them: “I will fucking kill you!”
The protesters were all unarmed, which they asserted repeatedly, and were clearly exasperated by the cop’s overreach. The incident took place at 11:55pm CT:
Protesters followed Officer Go Fuck Yourself, demanding that his sergeant take his gun away and requesting his name. Neither the officer nor his supervisor would supply it. But Caleb-Michael Files, journalist with The Youngist, who shot one of the videos, has learned that the officer’s name is Ray Albers.
It seems that some citizens of Ferguson want to increase the extremely low voter participation rate in Ferguson, and the Missouri GOP (or, at least the leadership) is not happy about that effort at all.
Ferguson is majority black, but the mayor is white, and five of the six city council members are white. For members of the community who feel their interests aren’t being represented, the first step towards changing that is registering to vote. Also, reportedly, only three of the 53 Ferguson police officers are Black.
@ 12% voting….no wonder the GOP is mad, they will be losing their control!
