Meet Officer Go Fuck Yourself
A police officer in Ferguson pointed his assault rifle at journalists who were streaming the protests, saying “I will fucking kill you”.
When asked his name his reply is “Go fuck yourself”.
Someone has decided this deserves a Twitter account.
No words. She was also with Talib who was told by police to keep his hands up or they’ll blow his brains out. And some resident protestors are exhausted with everything and saying that street medics told them they’re experiencing a subcategory of PTSD.
One time my health teacher claimed that lsd can kill people by making them dance so much that they become dehydrated from sweating and they drink enough water to make them drown
Rick Perry was indicted for abuse of power today, so here’s a look back at all six times he was named Asshole of the Day:
"As the protesters marched through the streets, it began to storm. Every time the thunder crashed, the protesters would cheer louder and louder. It seemed as if mother nature herself were cheering them on.."
We ain’t going away this time
Did they even MENTION this ON CNN?
The young lady wielding the megaphone is a POWERFUL spirit in this world. POWERFUL. I can’t say enough about her.
People seriously need to stop putting their photos of this stuff into black and white. It feeds the idea that all of this is stuff that happened in the past and that we’re beyond it now, in the good and progressive present day where nothing like this could ever happen again.
At a glance you could absolutely mistake one of these black and white photos as something from the 50s or 60s if you weren’t looking out for the clothes and cars, thank goodness all that was in the past, and move on.
We’re not beyond it. This shit is happening right now. Today.
The LITERAL point of the photos being in black and white is to show a connection between the past and present. The photos are for people to understand that this is still happening now instead of glorifying the past as is typically done. I understand you didn’t know that, so it’s okay. Don’t argue with me on this, I took the photos.
The government wouldn’t spend a dime on education, healthy food, drinkable water, assisting people in poverty, de-polluting the streets, or anything else of importance. But they would be on call to spend millions on equipping a small police force to fight off a group of defenseless protestors. You can argue with me that this is not a hate crime, when it so obviously is, but you can’t argue with me when I say that this government is too corrupt to even serve it’s purpose.
"Looting? I thought these were supposed to be nonviolent protests"
I know it’s incredible! People are literally coming out of the woodwork to comment on this photoset to focus on the looting headline with “well yes it is nice they were helping people hit with the tear gas, but stealing is still wrong uwu” as if they’re back to kindergarten morality.
Like everyone who’s gone to boot camp I’ve been tear gassed. They put about 50+ of you in a gas chamber and toss it in. You have to stay there until your rank is allowed to exit. Before that though, you have to say your name, rank, and social security number. You then exit and file into ranks (again) outside and are not allowed at any point to rinse your face or eyes for the entire day.
That right there? Easily the worst part of boot camp. My eyes were literally swollen shut. I was blinded for a good 30 minutes and my chest hurt for days.
I have zero problem and not and ounce of judgement for people raiding a mcdonalds that can easily afford to repair damage for ANYTHING to help ease the shittiness that is being tear gassed. Esp because every one of us in boot were medically sound to deal with tear gas. Children, asthmatics, people prone to panic and anxiety attacks, the elderly as sooo many more are NOT going to handle tear gas well at ALL.
Or that smoke the police use either.
It’s easy to sit there and judge someone from the safety of your home and say things like “it’s just tear gas” or “it can’t be that bad”.
Fuck you. As someone who HAS been gassed, you need to stfu.

3 people stealing the same bike [video]
entirely fed up with this world
Racism right here.
White people steal, and it’s BRUSHED OFF AND OTHER PEOPLE HELP
Black person? MOB of people come to attack him.
but it’s all in our heads though
This shit is infuriatingThey helped the white girl steal it. Not just let her steal it, but HELPED her steal it.
Systemic racism, and anti-black attitudes in the white community don’t exist though.
