caleb4l asked: Quit posting absolute bullshit and get over the fact that a fucking criminal was put to rest that day. If he would have never stole from the store, he most likely wouldn't have had contact with police that day. If he would have never assaulted the officer and reached for his gun, he wouldn't have took a bullet to the skull. #justicehasbeenserved

Even if he stole Rellos, would he get the death penalty? No.

Even if he stole an officer’s gun, would he get the death penalty? No.

Even if he punched a cop, would he get the death penalty? No.

Never mind the end of that video shows Mike Brown paying for his Rellos.

Never mind the store owner said there was no robbery and that no one working for him reported it.

Never mind the police chief said Darren Wilson did not know Mike Brown was a “suspect” in a robbery — he was stopped for walking in the street versus on the sidewalk.

Never mind the autopsy report that says he was shot from nearly 35ft away.

Never mind that report shows wounds consistent with him being shot with his hands in the air.

Ultimately, you have one White cop who gunned down yet another unarmed Black man, a police force that has not been at all forthcoming with any answers, and a Black community tired of their children being murdered for shit as simple as walking down the street. That same police force (accompanied by National Guard and Missouri Highway Patrol) has used violence to try to quell peaceful protest.

When looting broke out, the people in that community banded together to PROTECT local businesses from the looters who looked a fuckton like your shitstain self.

Here’s a newsflash, cockwagon: If you stole Rellos, your ass might spend a few hours in a holding cell. You might stay overnight. But you’re never gonna be thought of as a suspect right off the bat by a cop when you’re just walking down the street with a pal. You’re never gonna have to worry if your hoodie makes you suspect. You’re never gonna have to wonder if a traffic stop is going to end in your murder.

And if you go all mass shooter on us, which White boys like yourself are wont to do, rest assured your legacy will be burnished with sympathetic interviews bemoaning how such a good boy went wrong. The media will not pour through your social media profiles looking for the most “thug” picture of you mean mugging for the camera. In fact, if you have a gun selfie on your Facebook, you’re just standing up for your Second Amendment rights. Of course you’re not a thug like THOSE people, amirite?

Also, you’ll be a hell of a lot more likely to be taken alive after committing mass murder than a young Black man who was simply suspect for walking down the street, or holding his wallet, or who fit the description — that catchall justification beloved by policemen everywhere. Or even a young Black woman seeking help after a car crash. If you pound on a stranger’s door, you’re getting a ambulance instead of a bullet in the face.

Take your impotent Wonderbread™ White supremacist opinions elsewhere, son, because I am fresh out of fucks to give and won’t be restocking any time soon.

P.S. Your wrong as fuck hashtag up there means as much as your opinions. I think you forgot how to internet.

Executive Order 14-09, signed by Gov. Jay Nixon, authorizing the deployment of the National Guard, and restricting access into and out of Ferguson.He claims it’s to assist law enforcement with restoring order, but he’s evidently not seen the videos where they’re teargassing children and threatening to shoot reporters in the head for filming. The cops don’t need protection from the people, the people need protection from the cops.

Lost a cop friend on Facebook today because he messaged me with this “Not all cops… but what about all the good ones?!” bullshit. I got pissed and fired back, “If it’s not all cops, and some of y’all are good guys, then what the fuck are y’all doing about the bad cops trashing your reputations? What are y’all doing to stop the unjustified and racist use of lethal force? Why are you defending a murderer? This looks more like y’all ‘good cops’ are more into serving and protecting your own asses instead of the people.”

He called me a reactionary bitch and said I could go get teargassed for all he cared with the “thugs” in Ferguson. He also said that people like me sympathizing with “the wrong type of people” get officers killed every day, and that people in Missouri are “determined to learn that the hard way by pushing officers into using deadly force, even if they dont [sic] want to and these thugs will make more mistakes happen.”

Guess he’s not one of those good cops after all.

Fuck everything about this.Wearing one of these shirts is flat out advertising a person’s disgusting racism and should be reviled as such. The KKK is also raising a defense fund for Darren Wilson. Let that sink in for a moment.The cops met the 125 protestors on bicycles and on foot, with no riot gear, tear gas or SWAT. As opposed to tonight, when they gassed the crowd and threatened to shoot a reporter.Spread this shit like wildfire, y’all.

Angry, largely white, fully-armed militia folk point guns at law enforcement at Bundy ranch with no repercussions, but a mostly black crowd of unarmed protestors with their hands in the air in Ferguson, Mo. necessitate tear gas, rubber bullets, armored vehicles, and martial law.

White gun fetishists open carry AR-15s into big box stores and it’s their right, but a black man picks up a BB gun at Walmart, carries it up front, and is gunned down after a panicked shopper called 911 to report a black man with a gun.

Please. Lecture me about post-racial America.

I’ll tell you where they are — smearing Mike Brown and cheering on the police because to them, Black lives don’t matter, and they can’t actually fathom a world where the barrels of those same weapons would be trained on them.

White supremacy is a hell of a drug.
