For once, there’s some good news coming out of Ferguson

sassydrunkcersei:

The Highway Patrol of St. Louis has taken over for the St. Louis PD. Their captain is from Ferguson, and has been marching with the protesters.

Spreading the primary data from last night - all of the videos and other first-hand accounts - has apparently worked as it should. The governor of Missouri has relieved the Ferguson Police Department of duty and replaced them with the Highway Patrol. They are led by Ferguson native, Capt. Ronald S. Johnson, who says he is dedicated to keeping his community safe, but allowing the demonstrators their say.

The news is doubled with the news that the FBI is more clearly going to oversee the investigation into the shooting of Chris Brown. All of this points to the people in charge recognizing that what the Ferguson police did last night was wrong, and I’m sure that everyone’s hard work to get live footage out there and spread across social media played an active part in that.

There are only 2 states where the legality of filming police officers can get to be legally questionable. In all other 48 states, the courts have ruled that as long as you are not interfering with their work and aren’t breaking any laws (trespassing), you have a right to film a police officer as they fulfill their duties in public.

WITCHCRAFT

I’m mad… I just tried like 10 problems and they all worked. I’m depressed

WHERE WAS THIS WHEN I WAS IN SCHOOL?!?!

This is basically the exact same thing as long multiplication, and it works for numbers of any length. But if you can do long multiplication, it’s actually much faster. I should make a video explaining how this works exactly, because when you see this method right next to long multiplication, it’s actually cool to see how it lines up to just be a visual representation of the same thing.

Go ahead and see if you can figure out how it works by multiplying 312 by 421.

They just fired on the crowd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! peaceful protesters

watch this link please now!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do not just like this, reblog it and watch it, they need witnesses, the police need to know they are being watched and that black lives fucking matter 

This whole thing is sickening. I don’t want to spread misinformation, but actual footage from what is happening is primary evidence and needs to be seen.

Anonymously tell me your assumptions about me and I’ll confirm or deny them.

Why not just inform yourself then?

There are only so many hours in the day. I know that sounds like laziness, but no: there are so many issues out there that to actually have a informed opinion on requires thousands of hours of reading and research and internalization and synthesis. I can’t just read a collection of headlines and feel like I know what’s going on in Gaza. I’m not the informed specialist on trans-gender bathroom usage who has a PhD in gender studies. No matter how much I read, I won’t ever understand the pain of the people rioting in Ferguson because my life and experience is so much different than theirs.
So, the only smart thing to do is to admit how little I know and not say anything. I don’t want to spread misinformation accidentally. I’m sorry if you feel that’s not good enough, but we all have our own lives to live and everyday problems to face.

I shouldn’t have to say this, but I will.

If you and I are buds, because then you probably have the means to talk to me, and you’re feeling down I’m always here to at least listen. Even if I have nothing to say, I’ve done this before and I’ll do it again. I know what it’s like to not have anyone hear you out and no one should have to feel that way. It blows. But I’m a stupidly loyal friend.
