It is great that this #OfficerGoFuckYourself dick has been removed from duty, but it should be known that A) He was not fired, merely suspended, and more importantly B) This is not an isolated incident. Many (but if we’re being real, “most”) of the cops down there act exactly like this, if not worse. “I’ll fucking kill you” and “Keep walking or I will shoot you dead” are terrifyingly common phrases heard down there, said to countless peaceful protesters while assault weapons are pointed right at them. The only difference between the majority of the cops down there and this fucker is that he was caught on camera.

If it wasn’t fucked up enough that Amnesty International actually sent people to Ferguson to give aid on American soil, tonight the police kicked them out, with their hands up, AT GUNPOINT. Same goes for so much press throughout the night (side note, I recently saw a former military officer talk about tactics and how they only point their guns if they intend to shoot. If that were true in Ferguson, hundreds of people would already be dead). At one point, a cop pulled the press badge off a Vice News reporter’s neck, tore it up, and told him it “didn’t mean shit.” War correspondents from OTHER COUNTRIES have travelled to this small town in Missouri. War correspondents. Of all the messed up pictures out there of citizens being bullied and denied their rights, imagine what happens after all the press are denied their rights (regularly) and are forced to leave (regularly). They’re not even allowed to leave their little press area, far from the real story. “The world is watching” has been sent to Ferguson from all over the globe, and it’s very heartening. But what happens when no one can watch?
Fixed the link.
YES THE PRESS DESERVES RIGHTS OTHERS DON”T GET…..but how do you feel when the press is helping destroy many of those lives in other FERGUSONS across the country? If 2 journalists wouldn’t have been arrested, THE MASS MEDIA, Journalists would not be covering Ferguson right now. All of a sudden, “the press” doesn’t get access and the story of an innocent black teen’s murder by a racists cop, turns into how the press is denied the right to report. HMMM, where have you been all this time before PRESS?
You seem to think this post was exclusively about how the press has no access. You seem to think people including myself weren’t already paying attention to Ferguson before those reporters got arrested. You seem to think I don’t care about arresting the murderer of a young black male. You seem to think in not appalled by the treatment of PEACEFUL PROTESTORS. You seem to think a lot of things that you pulled right out of the air, and you seem to be very angry about those things. You confuse me, lonely internet stranger. Get your fucking shit together.
Finished a Dragon Age Origins doodle today. My superbadass dwarf warrior romanced Leliana, so, here they are running around.
Leliana’s supposed to be wearing the Felon’s Coat and my superbadass dwarf is supposed to be wearing Wade’s Superior Dragonbone Plate, but eh. It’s a notebook sketch. It’s not exactly super accurate.
I think they’re cute, though. Piggy back rides for all!
I have been following the shit going down in Ferguson for days, and I am just—I need something else for a minute. I don’t know about you. So, I drew this.
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.
Hug your kids and loved ones tight. Stay safe out there. The world is watching.
Creating a world where the battle cry of the mob is “We’re unarmed, please don’t shoot us.”
And they’re STILL getting shot and gassed, and it’s fucking deplorable.
THE VATICAN last night wondered aloud if the world was sure about issuing driving licenses to women.
“I mean, we don’t even trust them to be priests, and that’s a job with the most thorough instruction manual ever printed” a Vatican spokesman told assembled reporters. “Though you do have to skip over the bits about selling your daughters into slavery. God himself apparently tells us that women…

"Evolution, we’ve talked about this."
"But I miss them.”
"It’s not the same."
"I know. I’m sorry."
"Can I at least make these cassowaries 50 feet tall?"
"Come on, you know that size didn’t work out so well before."
"Six feet, then? And over 100 pounds?"
"Yeah, that sounds better."
"And can I put weird prehistoric crests on their heads?"
"I don’t see why not."
"And can they slash people’s throats with their dagger claws?”
"Sure, pal, if that would make you feel better."
"I think it would. Thanks for understanding."
"You got it, evolution. Anytime."
