What the fucks happening in Ferguson?

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. (beware: somewhat graphic image linked)

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.

[I can’t stand Captain Proton episodes. They are so ridiculous and annoying.]

And that’s precisely why I love them! They were so over the top and similar to serials. YAY captain proton

I love how the first episode was pretty wacky.

i hate that i want you

DON’T BUY THESE. 

I made that mistake. I was once like you. I thought “these are probably like mozzarella sticks, except with melty american cheese instead of mozzarella and dorito dust instead of regular bread crumbs.”

I was wrong. So wrong. The cheese wasn’t melty, as shown. It wasn’t even cheese. It had the texture of play-doh and the flavor of despair. It tasted like someone had described cheese to someone who had never heard of it, and they gave it their best shot and just went “yikes, I’m really sorry, guy.”

While the cheese pictured in the image above is gooey and melty and looks delicious, the cheese in the actual product i like they took just the congealed film off the top of nacho cheese and, sun-baked it until it was completely dried out, and then jammed it into this triangular abomination. 

Which brings me to the dorito dust crusting. You would think that something so like a dorito would deliver the satisfaction of a dorito. You would be wrong. It tastes like someone used regular bread crumbs but sprayed the hell out of them with dorito-scented axe body spray, then dipped it in orange food coloring for the full effect. 

I bought this thinking “what’s the worst that can happen?” The worst that can happen, as it turns out, is that the people at 7-11 exchanged my money for four of these triangular monstrosities. Up until the second I bit down, I thought there was a chance for this to be good.

If you want to eat something roughly cheese-flavor with the consistency of a stale marshmallow rolled in the crumbs at the bottom of a bag of doritos you found in your backpack but can’t quite remember when you bought it, by all means, “load up” on the Doritos Loaded sorrow triangles. 

However, if you love yourself and think life is for the living, avoid these at all costs. They are anti-life, and left unchecked, will consume all that is good and happy in this and all possible universes.

[Despite the Rom hate I hear from other fans of DS9, I really feel like he’s one of my favorite characters. He’s a kind, shy, generous guy that’s been kicked down by life so many times, but that hasn’t stopped him from caring for people and consistently trying to do the right thing for the people he cares about. Plus, he was a brilliant engineer, maybe on par with Nog and Miles. I see a lot of myself in Rom, and I really wish there was less hate for him in the fandom.]

I’m surprised anyone hates rom. He’s awesome!
