Bloop.

What the FUCK

White people riot all the damn time. UNC wins? Riot. UNC loses? Riot. Penn State fires a guy for covering for a pedophile for years? RIOT RIOT RIOT!But too many black people gather, even peacefully, and here comes the tear gas and rubber(coated) bullets.

crazyy

listen.

Stay woke

The thing is:White people riot and destroy property when they lose games, or, strangely, when they win games, at sporting events.They riot and destroy property when child rapists and people who are complicit in covering up child rape are penalized and punished.But if black people riot and destroy property in response to systemic injustice and State-sanctioned violence against black people, then the country, the media, and American citizens regard us as unthinking savages.Surely, the unmitigated fuckery present in this paradigm is self-evident….

All of the truth here.

Mike Brown’s killer Darren Wilson “explaining” “what really happened” - he just deactivated his facebook so I can no longer post what he’s up to, but just wanted to show everyone the absolute bullshit lies being told

Let’s keep in mind this article from the Wall Street Journal:

Local police released new details in sometimes chaotic fashion Friday about the shooting death of an unarmed African-American teenager, which sowed more mistrust in a community already lacking faith in law-enforcement efforts. Early Friday, Ferguson police identified Darren Wilson as the officer who shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown in an incident that has sparked a week of unrest in this St. Louis suburb as well as protests in cities across the country.Chief Thomas Jackson also released documents and surveillance video, alleging that Mr. Brown was tied to a robbery at a convenience store shortly before he crossed paths with police. Hours later, Mr. Jackson held another news conference in which he said Mr. Wilson, who is white, wasn’t aware of the robbery when he stopped Mr. Brown.
  1. Lack of the alleged robbery being called in on the 911 tapes…
  2. Time stamp on video of alleged robbery doesn’t match …hmmm…okay
  3. Police report is time stamped BEFORE the alleged Mike Brown on that tape even left the store
  4. Wilson’s own previous admittance that he didn’t know about the robbery at the time of the murder
  5. MULTIPLE eyewitness accounts detailing the events of the murder…all of which said that Micheal Brown was RUNNING AWAY from Wilson until he was shot in the back, turned around, dropped to his knees with his hands raised, and yelled something to the effect of “Don’t shoot! I don’t have a gun!” before he was shot in the head and multiple times after that…while on his knees…with his hands in the air….
  6. Fuck outta here, you spineless bitch

Didn’t I tell y’all they’re going to try and say he was on drugs or some shit to make him have “superhuman strength” and belligerent?! Didn’t I say that shit?! 

^^^ Them claiming he was under the influence of drugs is a given. It’s the only way they could even try to justify the murder.

"Michael taunts and yells ‘What are you gonna do about it’ stuff like that”. What the fuck is “stuff like that”? You mean to tell me this boy was running full speed toward a cop with a gun pointed directly at him?? How long did it take this cracker to concoct this bullshit ass story?? It could have at least made a little more sense.

I’m not trusting any toxicology or autopsy report they release at this point. Ain’t no telling what they did to his body once they opted to transport it in an unmarked SUV versus an ambulance.

7 days….it took him 7 days to concoct that bullshit ass story, twin. And let’s not forget that aside from the fact that his ass was in a fucking vehicle and should have immediately radioed for help as soon as that gun went off, officers have other items on them to include pepper spray, batons, tasers, etc….you go straight for the gun, though? On an unarmed child? You go…straight…for…the…gun…

And yeah, I called all that. The M.E. or medic is supposed to transport the body. NOT the PD, especially when it’s a cop shooting. On everything he’d better get tried and convicted of murder….

Disgusting.

U.S. Martin Luther King Jr being attacked as he marched nonviolently for the Chicago Freedom Movement, 1966, which was the most ambitious civil rights campaign in the North of the United States, and lasted from mid-1965 to early 1967.

If only he’d been well-spoken, pulled his pants up and didn’t wear a hoodie… oop… wait…

Please really look at this. Look at how many men are on him. Look at how you can see he is not attacking anyone. Look at how he is dressed. Imagine the fear he has that this moment may have been his last. Remember that he was assassinated by forces within the U.S. gov’t because of his mission. Before you pull that string on that MLK Jr. watered-down quote teddy, look at this, look at what’s happening today, and really fucking think.

The case around Mike Brown’s killing by a Ferguson police officer is only getting murkier.

After releasing images from a gas station robbery to the press Friday morning with the suggestion Mike Brown was pictured in them, the Ferguson police department is now backtracking. In a second press conference hours later, Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson admitted that Brown’s shooting was unrelated to the incident.

Jackson told reporters that Brown and a friend were in fact stopped, “because they were walking down the middle of the street blocking traffic.”

He also admitted that Darren Wilson, the officer who killed Brown, didn’t suspect Brown at the time that he stopped him.

When Chief Jackson was asked by reporters why his department chose to release the robbery tape if it was unrelated to the shooting, he replied that he had to because “the media asked for it.”
