pro-life advocates:*verbally harasses abortion patients and pickets outside of clinics, compromising the safety and privacy of the patients*
police:
westboro baptist church:*holds up picket signs that say how jewish, muslim, and gay people are going to hell and that god hates them personally*
police:
ferguson protesters:*protests peacefully over the murder of an unarmed black teenager*
police:what the fUCK this is horrendous and completely out of order call in all units
I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat. When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves. I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while black. I am not at risk of being shot while unarmed. I am not at risk of being shot while armed with nothing more than a BB gun. I am not at risk of being shot for reaching for my wallet. I am privileged.
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged.

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.

(From what I understand, the police thought they heard a gunshot and started throwing tear gas into the crowd. Correct me if I’m wrong)

molotovriot:

regardless of whether or not mike brown robbed a store, the chief of police in ferguson states the policeman who murdered hihad no knowledge of the incident, making the crime itself and his death unrelated. 

ferguson pd also corroborates witness statements that the murderer stopped brown and his friend for jaywalking.

any further statements regarding the robbery itself, or the “good” nature of the policeman who committed the murder are stereotyped propaganda by the police and the media to demonise a murder victimand absolve his murderer.

also the legal punishment for shoplifting is not pre-trial execution.
