THEY DON’T CURRENT POSE A THREAT. BUT IT’S REALLY ALL ABOUT WHAT THEY MIGHT DO. THEY COULD JOIN THE POLICE BE GIVEN A GUN THEY’RE NOT TRAINED TO USE PROPERLY THEN WANDER AROUND POINTING IT AT PEOPLE
Okay, fellow white people. We need to talk.
Let me tell you a story: I was an angry punk teenager. Not violent, but I did a shitton of…

Oh, golly, Anon. You have certainly made up some salient points there. If only I weren’t such a clearly ignorant little so-and-so, talking out of her depth! If only I were the kind of person who took care to back up her points with actual research! If only I were the kind of person who kept data on hand because she knew poorly-informed douchebags would be showing up with their fairy tales sooner or later.
A week ago, I wrote a piece arguing against (and, depressingly, pre-empting) accusations of Robin William’s being “selfish”. It was surprisingly popular. The main response I got was from people appreciating the fact that those with depression and mental illness had been defended via a…
If you don’t watch Last Week Tonight, you should. This is a man who got his own show on HBO and takes that position of influence and FUCKING CALLS OUT EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHER. I was fully expecting him to let Ferguson PD have it this week, I was not disappointed.

Five-O, allows citizens to enter the details of every interaction with a police officer.

These details are captured for every county in the United States. Citizen race and age information data is also captured.
Additionally, Five-O allows citizens to store the details of each encounter with law enforcement; this provides convenient access to critical information needed for legal action or commendation.”

I’m out of sour straws, so liquor will have to take its place to drown my sorrows.
That Weeks is such a twitter tease. I thought we were gonna be in love (or at least exchange more biscuits) but I haven’t heard from that nerd in months.
I told him to keep his distance from mah wumman if he wanted to stay man-pretty
Aww yeah, motherfuckers.
We did it. You did it. It’s a stupid, arbitrary, fun, fluffy goal, and you managed it with a month to go. Give yourselves a hand. Then dive in and read some stories. There’s 500 there so there’s bound to be some gems you didn’t find yet:
