Ferguson Police have dogs and shotguns. The unarmed crowd is raising their hands.
For anyone not following the Mike Brown story on Twitter: a 17 year old black boy named Mike Brown, who was supposed to start college tomorrow, was shot to death in Ferguson, Missouri by police while jaywalking. He was unarmed. He was shot 9 times.
Initial media reports claimed that an 18 year old black man had been shot and killed while fleeing police after shoplifting.
People in the neighborhood, including members of Mike Brown’s family, came out of their homes and began to protest, shouting “no justice, no peace,” and keeping their hands in the air.
Media reports claimed that a violent mob quickly formed around the shooting location shouting “kill the police.”
Spread this. Tell the truth about what happened to this boy. Tell the truth about what is happening NOW. The police and the mainstream media is painting him as a criminal, and his community as a violent mob.
SPREAD THIS. Don’t let them lie.
I refuse to join in the commemorations of the start of WW1, I will only gine you this from 100 years ago this week when George Bernard Shaw urged both sides to shoot their officers and go home.

also, it’s a trick question… Unless fish don’t count as living things
I keep telling people this…. No fucks given… Smdh….. Imperialism at its finest, invisible
Omg look at petas response
Holy shit what the fuck burn them omg
so when we say fuck PETA you know where we’re coming from
When it comes down to it, considering the fact that they kill most of the animals they’re “saving”, they objectify women in most of their ads, and they don’t give a shit about POCs being harmed for their food, the only population PETA cares about is white American vegan men. That’s funny - sounds like almost everyone else.

I’m sorry but you have to be slightly mentally disabled to believe that criminals would go through any of the channels that a normal citizen would to get a gun. They would get their arms the same way militia’s in south america and Africa would, through shady ass arms dealers, who guess what, probably receive federal funding on some level as they not only sell to warlords, drug dealers, but governments as well (really not much of a difference when it comes to the US government
"If you regulate guns, what about [some useful but dangerous thing that’s heavily regulated but no one wants to ban]," is the #1 dumbest argument against gun control.
#2? “Criminals don’t care about gun laws,” a formulation that produces 31,700,000 hits on Google.
This is not how gun laws work.
If someone with a criminal record goes to a federally licensed gun dealer, it doesn’t matter whether he wants to follow the law or not. The dealer, who has a strong interest in following the law because his license to operate openly depends on compliance with regulations, will run the potential purchaser through NICS. Where he’ll get denied. As has happened 700,000 times. So he doesn’t get the gun even if he wants to do this bad thing.
But if someone with a criminal record chooses to buy a gun at a show or via a private seller, they can do so because there’s no requirement for the law-abiding citizen to run the buyer through NICS. That’s why they call it a loophole.
If gun control proponents are successful in closing that loophole, people with records will have to steal guns (not that easy) or buy them on the illicit market, where they will be much more expensive because the route of gun manufacturer -> dealer -> “clean” buyer -> criminal will be that much more difficult to traverse. Making criminals pay more for weapons is good.
"But criminals won’t follow the law anyhow!"
So, fuck it. Why try? I’m tired of people who think that we shouldn’t at least make it a bit harder…
Because people who are gonna steal cars will do it no matter what, but you still lock your car. Hell, some of y’all even alarm them and use anti-theft systems. But why try because someone’s gonna steal a car anyhow, amirite?
