From PINAC: A New Orleans police officer turned off her body cam before opening fire on a man who had escaped from her a week earlier. Lisa Lewis shot the man in the forehead during a traffic stop, then shot at at him again as he ran away, according to the lawyer of the man who remains hospitalized. He was wanted on warrants. Not only did she turn off the camera, the department tried its best to downplay Monday’s incident, which they initially reported to the media as posted below:
If cops are going to turn off body cams when they feel like it, and suffer no punishment, than why have body cameras in the first place?
Punish them! Also, according to the P.R release, they didn’t even report that the man was shot, only an injury to the hand of the officer. Sigh.
I’m grossed out by the kind of stuff tumblr does to its users over an extended period of time
Grammar and punctuation is completely lost on some people, to the point where their posts are unreadable and irritating
And tumblr fosters and feeds this incredible narcissism and need to impress people- people who don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things.
A Democratic Missouri state senator representing parts of Ferguson who tweeted multiple times “fuck you,” at Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon defended her choice of words on Fox News Monday saying she did so because she was tear-gassed for three days.
“The reason why I used profane language is because he has allowed us to get tear-gassed for three days,” Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal said. “I am one of his senators in his party and he was at the state fair enjoying a country concert while we were getting teargassed and shot at. And yes, anyone who’s going to get teargassed deserves to say a few ‘F’ bombs here and there.”
“I represent my constituents, not Gov. Nixon,” the senator said. “He has been absent from the minority community his entire career and only comes before us when it is politically expedient for him. Or when he’s running for office, and because he has been outside of this community…let me tell you this, and this is important for your audience to know. He has still yet to come to ground zero. Yet to come to ground zero. He’s been in Florissant, he’s been in Normandy, but he has not spoken to the victims of the crisis we are dealing with and that is why I have called him a coward.”

Yeah, I want her to go big places, she’s the best.

Still feeling somewhat incoherent and dizzy though. I might take my medicine early tonight to get more in my system. I really hope the dizziness is because of that and not the higher spiro dose lowering my blood pressure to unhealthy lows…
I had a therapy consultation earlier. I had to cancel my appointment yesterday because of the daze of SSRI withdrawal so it was rescheduled to this afternoon. I was originally supposed to see a woman but a man saw me, which made me nervous at first but his specialty is trauma apparently and he was really validating when I talked to him about C-PTSD and like, he called the DSM bullshit for not including C-PTSD and said he didn’t blame me for hating mental health “professionals” so it was pretty okay. He called me a guy though (“you seem like a smart guy” was the sentence or something) which sucks but isn’t as far on the misgendering scale as like, [deadname] or “he” so I guess that’s ok. I see him again next week and then get assigned a therapist. I could work with him but I might angle for a woman who also has trauma experience. I’m glad I went though, finding a therapist who isn’t crappy and manipulative would be neat.
U.S. Martin Luther King Jr being attacked as he marched nonviolently for the Chicago Freedom Movement, 1966, which was the most ambitious civil rights campaign in the North of the United States, and lasted from mid-1965 to early 1967.
If only he’d been well-spoken, pulled his pants up and didn’t wear a hoodie… oop… wait…
Please really look at this. Look at how many men are on him. Look at how you can see he is not attacking anyone. Look at how he is dressed. Imagine the fear he has that this moment may have been his last. Remember that he was assassinated by forces within the U.S. gov’t because of his mission. Before you pull that string on that MLK Jr. watered-down quote teddy, look at this, look at what’s happening today, and really fucking think.
