This is for those who are curious and you all out in Ferguson. I’m going to be attaching some info graphics (one may seem needless due to circumstances but I’m adding it anyway.) I have some more info I’d like to put into a better to use format ( alot of them are screen grabs and I’d like to put in clearer and slur free language.) If you want me to send anything I got or any info I have ( I’m a Criminal Justice student) don’t hesitate to ask.
I have seen a few of these but a post with them compiled may help more. I will be editing these as I get it all prepared I’ll use the Ferguson Protest Aid tag for any updates I do. Stay safe everyone.
"This petition is for Amadou Diallo - shot at 41 times. An innocent, hardworking man simply reaching for his wallet, Diallo should be alive today.- Petition | Please Enact New Federal Laws to Protect Citizens from Police Violence and Misconduct | Change.org (via brutereason)
This petition is for Sean Bell - shot at over 50 times and killed on his wedding day.
This petition is for Oscar Grant - handcuffed with his hands behind his back for breaking a fight on the subway - Oscar was shot in the back and killed by a police officer while sitting down.
This petition is for Chavis Carter - arrested for marijuana, searched, handcuffed with his hands behind his back, and put into the back of a police car. Chavis is then said to have somehow killed himself with a gun.
This petition is for Wendell Allen - just 20 years old - police busted into a house and shot him in the heart - killing him. He wasn’t who they were looking for.
This petition is for Eric Garner - choked to death on YouTube for the entire world to see. While the coroner has deemed his death a homicide, we must change the laws to prevent this from ever happening again.
This petition is for Mike Brown - unarmed and shot to death in Ferguson, Missouri, we are still waiting for even the basic answers here.
This petition is for these men, and for many other unarmed men and women who have been killed by the police. It is unacceptable for the police to serve as JUDGE, JURY, and EXECUTIONER."
"When stopped by police, blacks in Ferguson were twice as likely as whites to be arrested — even though police found contraband for 34% of whites stopped, versus 22% of blacks"-
Yeah. It was a ticking time bomb…. like most of America.
There should be riots across this entire country.
Perceptually speaking, we are all fundamentally alone in our minds. There can be no test to effectively translate my own experience to another. The one tool that comes closest to letting another share my thoughts is language, and even with all its shapes, with it’s infinite forms in infinite combinations, it often fails at its task.
Imagine someone with an allergy to oysters. They had never had one and had in fact been ordered to never partake. I could tell them about oysters. I could bring up the salt, the copper, the sensation. I could quote Hemingway and ask them to take a test based on my descriptions, but they would never know the essence of my experience.
This is perhaps a bad example, but my point is this. The next time you think you know how someone else experiences this world, stop. You don’t. You may get close, but you will never know.

A vigil held for Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager gunned down by Ferguson, Mo., police on Saturday in disputed circumstances, turned into what the media described as a riot on Monday evening.
But while national coverage has focused on the indisputably counterproductive violence and destruction committed by Ferguson residents during a moment of anguish, videos and photos taken from the scene show local police aggravating the situation as well.
Please pay attention to what is happening in Ferguson right now.
The people of Ferguson are staging a peaceful protest regarding the unlawful, tragic murder of Mike Brown, and the police are responding with rubber bullets (one man has been injured so far) and tear…
