"I’ll watch the night turn light blue,
But it’s not the same without you.
Because it takes two to whisper quietly.
The silence isn’t so bad,
Till I look at my hands and feel sad.
Cause the spaces between my fingers
Are right where yours fit perfectly.”

“Right and wrong are determined by the people who hold positions of authority, that’s the way it has always been so how then can anyone know this truth you speak of? Don’t you see that truth long ago became a shadow of itself, it’s a mere echo of the past now… The world is one big moral gray area, it just makes you feel safer that it can be categorized into good and bad that’s not actually how it works.”
There’s this asshole who every time he sees me with my ukulele he thinks he’s funny and asks “Can you play any Metallica?” but the joke is now on him because I just learned how to play the intro riff to Master of Puppets.
I did it. I fucking did it. He asked me again just like I knew he would and I stared him straight in the eyes without blinking and just fucking shredded on my ukulele
Police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, have begun wearing body cameras after weeks of unrest over the shooting death of an unarmed black teen by a white officer and sharply differing accounts of the incident, officials said on Sunday.
Michael Brown, 18, was shot multiple times by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, sparking nearly three weeks of angry protests in the St. Louis suburb and drawing global attention to race relations in the United States.
Law enforcement and witnesses gave differing accounts of what transpired before Brown was shot, with police saying the teen had struggled with the officer. Witnesses say Brown held up his hands and was surrendering when he was shot multiple times in the head and chest.
The discrepancy has revived calls for officers across the county to be outfitted with body cameras to help capture an accurate record of police-involved incidents.
Chicago police officers shot and killed 19-year-old Roshad McIntosh in the west side neighborhood of North Lawndale on August 24. His mother was at a press conference after a letter was delivered to the United States Justice Department calling on the federal government to come to the city and investigate crimes by police officers, who have escaped accountability and justice.
Dawn McIntosh, who was crying, declared, “My son was killed senselessly, and he shouldn’t have been. He was surrendering, and they shot him anyway.”
Also, she said, “He was on his knees with both hands up begging for his life. They killed him.”
“They wouldn’t let me see him,” McIntosh shared. “I still didn’t see him until yesterday when I identified his body. It’s not right. It’s not right. And I want justice served. I want justice served for that officer who took my son away.”
Roshad’s aunt, who did not provide her name, told those gathered that the police informed her “they needed to do an investigation.” She did not even get a chance to “say goodbye, kiss her baby and tell her baby how much she loved him.”
Dawn explained that she still doesn’t know the name of the officer, who shot her son.
“I don’t know of age, nothing. I don’t know what he looks like. But, if it was the other way around and somebody had killed the police officer, their name, their age, their address, their nationality, everything, where they’re from, their whole history would have been on the news,” she suggested.
Our fight does not begin nor end in Ferguson. Around the country many young black men and women are losing their lives to police brutality and excessive force. We cannot turn a blind eye to this. Fergson is not a singular event. Nor should our response to it be. Police brutality is an epidemic in the black and latino community and it needs to be stopped.
The information about the cop involved in this case still has not been released and all I can ask is who’s child will be next.
There was 2-3 different police involved shootings in the Chicago area within the past few days.
I’m sick. Physically ill. Why does this keep happening?
