the fact you are cognizant of all this now makes me suspect you will make the right choices. (I say that without any implication behind what those choices might be — just that your judgement in making them seems thorough, informed, and reasonable)

Thank you so much, Gabbie, for always being so supportive and insightful.  The notion that there are more readily ethical and immediate avenues for enacting change has been fluttering around in my head since before I took the test, and it was really just undeniable that I would need to acknowledge this and progress from there, more selflessly.

Personal, but police-related.

The term “tear gas” is a misnomer. For one thing, “tear gas” seems to imply something innocuous— you would think it’s just a chemical that makes you tear up. In fact, tear gas is a dangerous, potentially lethal chemical agent which is outlawed under the Chemical Weapons Convention for use during wartime. As the Omega Research Foundation argues: “Less-lethal weapons are presented as more acceptable alternatives to guns. But these weapons augment rather than replace the more lethal weapons. Euphemistic labels are used to create the impression that these weapons represent soft and gentle forms of control. CS is never referred to by the authorities as vomit gas, in spite of its capacity to cause violent retching.” NGO Physicians for Human Rights believes that “ ‘tear gas’ is a misnomer for a group of poisonous gases which, far from being innocuous, have serious acute and longer-term adverse effects on the health of significant numbers of those exposed.”

CultureHISTORY: The Ferguson Protests - #NMOS14

In light of Mike Brown’s murder, and the police occupation of Ferguson, something extraordinary is happening. With the help of #BlackTwitter, social media, the spotlight of national attention and the impassioned citizens of Ferguson, a protest movement is taking shape and it is important to bear witness.

First there was the #IfTheyGunnedMeDown thread which was reported in the NY Times & LA Times, the #DontShoot thread of photos (some above), and tomorrow a National Moment of Silence across the country for the victims of police brutality.  

Thursday, August 14th#NMOS14 - 4:00P (PT) / 6:00P (CT) / 7:00P (ET). Check cities/location here.

The issue of police brutality against communities of color is a decades-old problem. But with new technology, everyone has access to more information and these cases are getting more attention. Plus, in the last four weeks, four unarmed black men have been killed by policemen across the country. Along with Mike Brown in St. Louis, Eric Garner in New York, John Crawford in Dayton, OH and Ezell Ford in L.A. Yes, it’s time for a movement.

I feel bad for the good, honest cops who are currently given a bad name due to the unfair, corrupted cops.

A child is dead and you direct your sympathy towards members of the corrupt institution that murdered him. 

There’s no such thing as a good cop. If a cop was good, he’d reveal the corrupt things his coworkers do and be fired or murdered. Any cop following the Blue Code of Silence—which is all of them—is a bad cop.
