For anyone who doesn’t know who Michael Brown is or what’s been going on in Ferguson
- Saturday Aug. 9, 2014: Reports out of Ferguson, MO. that a 17 y/o boy was shot 10 times by police over stolen candy
- He is identified as 18 y/o Michael Brown. The store Mike Brown…
Unwilling to speak about anything but how gently this baby says “cheese” today. Thank you for understanding.
i will never ever get over this “cheese.. TAKE THE PICTURE”
Animal fun fact: Chinchillas can’t get wet. Their fur retains too much water and will start to grow mold. So they bathe by rolling around in dust.
Chinchilla fun fact: Chinchillas have around 20 hairs per follicle; unlike humans who have 2-3 hairs per follicle. Because their fur is so dense, they cannot get fleas or other parasites. The bugs will suffocate in their fur.
Chinchilla fun fact: Petting one of those awesome little guys feels like touching a motherfucking cloud.
Chinchilla fun fact: Their newborn babies are like little pieces of fluffy popcorn. You could easily just toss a handful in your mouth.
Chinchilla fun fact: Don’t toss a handful into your mouth.
Do you know how much I would know about what’s happening in Ferguson if it wasn’t for social media? Nothing. Zero.
Jokes aside I feel like we all need to take a minute to thank the people on the streets literally risking their lives bringing us this information with their cell phone video cameras. Furgeson is on media lockdown right now and without the people braving tear gas to bring us this information we’d all be in the dark.
Deaf Awareness Week is upon us here in the UK! :D These pictures highlight the importance of lip-reading for Deaf and hard of hearing people all over the world…
We hate it when people mumble
we hate it when people cover their mouths
we hate it when people shout thinking we’ll hear better
we hate it when more than one person speak to us at the same time
we hate it when people do speak clearly….
BUT we do love it when people make the effort to talk clearly to us :)
Happy Deaf Awareness week!!
These are amazing.
A ‘Ring of Fire’ solar eclipse is a rare phenomenon that occurs when the moon’s orbit is at its apogee: the part of its orbit farthest away from the Earth. Because the moon is so far away, it seems smaller than normal to the human eye. The result is that the moon doesn’t entirely block out our view of the sun, but leaves an “annulus,” or ring of sunlight glowing around it. Hence the term “annular” eclipse rather than a “total” eclipse.
WITH RESPECT TO THE BROWN FAMILY WE SHOULD REMOVE PICTURES OF MICHAEL BROWN SLAIN IN THE STREET.
as far as I know I haven’t shared any of the pictures of Michael’s body, but I’m reblogging this for my followers who have.
my last words will probably be sarcastic
Oh sure, wave that knife around. I am SO SCARED…
Calling the Ferguson Police Dept. and requesting information about Antonio French’s release.
After posting this video, I discovered new information that states his arrest and release are public record and according to the Missouri Revised Statutes, Chapter 610 “Governmental Bodies and Records”, Section 610.200, information about whether his arrest involved a crime or infraction is supposed to be available to the public for copying and inspection. So I called a second time. A different operator answered and I asked, “I would like to request information about Antonio French’s arrest and release.” He told me Antonio French is on a 24 hour hold. I asked if his arrest involved a crime or infraction and the operator told me that he couldn’t give that information over the phone. When I asked why, he said it was “policy.” I asked him to read me the policy and he refused to because “it wasn’t in front of him and he’s not going to look for it.” I told him that according to the statutes, that information must be made available to the public. He told me, “Okay, you went to law school. You know how to read. That’s great, but I’m not releasing that information to you. Do you have any more questions?”
"Yes. Will you please read me the policy that states you can’t release information regarding his arrest over the phone?"
"No. Any more questions?"
"Yes. What is your name?" He hung up.
If there is one picture i post on here that i really wish y’all would reblog the fuck out of, it’s this one.
PLEASE. It could save many people that are under the ridiculous police state going on right now in Ferguson Missouri. Those people need our help.
And there it is.
Agreed but the media are being treated the same as the peaceful protestors. I’m not sure what good sending more in would do when the ones already there are being arrested, gassed, and shot with rubber rounds. They also can’t get any more in or out cause the roads to Ferguson are blocked.
International hacker group Anonymous claims to have obtained audio files of police dispatch and EMS during the Mike Brown shooting.
They have said it will be released at 2:00pm ET
UPDATED skip to around 9:35, they are asking for crowd control, at 11:20 they found out from the news, not the police. listen around 21:25 for request for more cars, it’s a very long video (apx 2 hours) so you only get a little information at a time, so far what people have heard and gathered is that they called for more cars and crowd control long before they called an EMT
this need waaaaaaaaay more notes
