Ferguson Police: Kicks out media and limits protestors to a “First Amendment Area”image

funny, i thought the WHOLE COUNTRY was a first amendment area. silly me. 

Funny that when they do this I only hear about it on tumblr, but when they try to limit guns and the second amendment it literally becomes a congressional uproar.

some horrifying shit going on in America right now.

^^ from the outside, looking in, there’s generally a decent bit of horrifying shit going on in America.

But, this is some 60s-throwback-style horrifying shit.

Anonymous: That white person bingo is probably the stupidest thing I have ever seen. It's just trying to throw away true things. Okay, he didn't deserve to die, but the family lawyer did say that there was an altercation, meaning he probably attacked the officer, resisted arrest, or something. YOU DON'T DO THAT. I don't give a shit if you're black and I'm tired of everyone making this out to be because of that. A white person was shot near Ferguson and we don't hear anything about that. SHUT THE FUCK UP

"Okay, he didn’t deserve to die, but…"

You ALMOST had it. There is no “but”. He was surrendering and didn’t deserve to be shot 6 times. Period. End of story. 

"he probably attacked the officer, resisted arrest, or something. YOU DON’T DO THAT."

You’re right, you don’t resist arrest. But resisting arrest doesn’t grant a police officer the right to kill you after you surrender. 

Also, here are your white opinion Bingo results:

The phrase “rubber bullets” is often used to describe what are more accurately termed “rubber-coated metal bullets”, heavy steel projectiles with a minimal coating of 1mm or 2mm of rubber, that are regularly used to lethal effect alongside — not instead of — live ammunition.

Rubber-coated metal bullets are fired from metal tubes placed on the end of high-velocity rifles such as the M-16s commonly used by Israeli troops. Tubes contain around 8 rubber-coated, cylindrical, steel projectiles, which are powered by blank rounds fired from the gun’s magazine.

Writing in the medical journal, The Lancet, [doctors] said firing the bullets at civilians made it “impossible to avoid severe injuries to vulnerable body regions such as the head, neck and upper torso, leading to substantial mortality, morbidity and disability.”

They added: “We reported a substantial number of severe injuries and fatalities inflicted by use of rubber bullets when vulnerable upper-body regions such as the head, neck and upper torso were struck.

“This type of ammunition should therefore not be considered a safe method of crowd control.”
