i never want to stop searching for beautiful things.
Mr. Rogers makes us all look terrible.
This same reasoning is why I hate it when people tell me not to be scared. If I’m scared and you tell me not to be, I’m not going to suddenly be peachy keen - I’m going to be scared and frustrated that I am scared!

if lions are coming to rescue someone, you have to know what you’re doing is wrong. you know, in that moment before you’re torn in to tiny little pieces by said lions
just in case you somehow forgot how horrible the pro life movement is
if people have the right to the hospital then i have the right to critically wound them
If people have the right to education then I have the right to give them brain damage
If people have the right to speak freely then I have the right to silence them permanently.

They literally ran the police out of the neighborhood, and are currently marching around the city. Details are still emerging, but from eye witness accounts, the young man was shot 16 times after the cop mistook a sandwich for a gun. My heart and soul are with the people of STL tonight.

A family from Hammond, Indiana is suing the Hammond Police department for excessive force after what should’ve been a routine traffic stop turned violent. Lisa Mahone was driving with her boyfriend Jamal Jones and her two children to Stroger Hospital when Hammond police pulled her over for not wearing a seatbelt. Mahone admitted to the violation and asked for a ticket so she could continue on her way to the hospital to visit her dying mother.
Though Mahone was the operator of the vehicle and produced valid identification and proof of insurance, police demanded to see identification from Jones as well. Jones informed the officers he didn’t have ID, as he recently received a ticket. After attempting to reach into the backseat and produce the ticket from a backpack, the officers drew their guns.
Mahone’s 14-year-old son then began recording the encounter with his cell phone and Mahone dialed 911.
According to Fox Chicago, an officer told Jones “”I don’t know you and I don’t know what you’re going to do.” Jones told the cops “That’s why I have my windows up. I’m not no harm to you right now. I got my kids in the car and you’re drawing your weapon.”
Police refused to take the ticket from Jones as ID and ordered him out of the vehicle. “Once the kids were scared, I wasn’t gonna get out of the car and leave my kids in the car,” said Jones. “He was being so aggressive.”
While Mahone was relating the story as it happened to the 911 operator, Jones demanded to see a “white shirt,” a commanding officer. The officer on the scene told Jones “Look at my shoulder dumbass. I got bars.” Video shows that after asking Jones another time if he was going to exit the car, an officer then breaks the passenger window, shocks Jones with a taser, then pulls him out of the car.
holy fucking shit I can’t believe this. HOW IS THIS NOT ALL OVER THE NEWS. what the FUCK is happening with the police across this country.
I wish I read all the text before I watched the video.
I’m reblogging this to keep it spreading. Please be warned this video includes unnecessary police brutality. They smash the window open and tase him.
