So last night cops arrested 7 protesters, then turned to the rest of the protesters and told them “we’ll release them without bond if you leave (stop protesting)”

They literally turned their own dubiously legal arrests into a hostage situation. They took hostages. Ferguson PD is a terrorist organization and they aren’t even trying to hide that fact any more.

Look at this

51 days, 7 hours since Mike Brown was killed.

hasdarrenwilsonbeenarrestedyet:

Systematic injustice persists in Ferguson as police arrest protesters and then attempt to use them to coerce protesters.. As @caulkthewagon wrote: “If Ferguson PD is willing to exchange arrestees for crowd movement, then those people haven’t been arrested, they’ve been kidnapped.”

100 more days until Grand Jury deadline.

I leave Tumblr for half a day and then find Hong Kong all over my dash.

All I have to say is

  • I am very suspicious of people saying “stop a second Tiananmen Square Massacre happening” because wow way to conflate the two and ignore the different factors in each. Not to…

HAPPENING NOW (9.26.14): And in an instance, mayhem. The police attacked protesters without warning or clear provocation, mind you, WHILE the police chief was out chatting/marching with them. More to come tonight. Stay woke. #farfromover (PT I) (PT II)

So while the Chief was PR stuntin, one of his officers decided to charge through the crowd and INCITE A MELEE. I repeat, the officers got physical with protesters, and in the ensuing mayhem, used it as an excuse to whoop on some of the protesters. THERE IS VIDEO! CNN is already misreporting it as an attack on the chief. Do not let them spread that lie. These pigs have no regard, respect, or consideration for the protesters, peaceful or otherwise. #staywoke #farfromover

look kiddos: due to tumblr’s half-baked tagging system (where only so many tags count towards actually categorizing a given post), tags on this site have evolved into an acceptable form of dispensing and sharing commentary, but that is not the case on other websites — ESPECIALLY AO3. tags on AO3 are intended to be functional, not conversational, and not only do excessive paragraphs of tags like these look patently ridiculous and sell your work short, they also make life harder for the site’s tag wranglers who volunteer their time to keep the tags organized so people can actually find your fic.
in short, knock it off.

assorted sand sibs headcanons part 2 :

  • If they ever went on a rollercoaster together Temari would be really chill and have a good time, Kankuro would be that one weirdo who for some reason starts laughing his ass off and Gaara would just sit completely still the entire time with a terrified expression on his face.
  • None of them are scared of horror movies tho
  • Do not come here and tell me Temari would not be absolutely amazing at tennis
  • Temari is also really good at wii games
  • by “good” I mean “DANGEROUS AS HECK”
  • Kankuro has always liked pranking people, and even tho he doesn’t do it a lot anymore he still enjoys fucking with his siblings. Most of the time he’ll just do something like sneaking into their rooms just to move stuff around at put it in weird positions. Temari will come home and see a bunch  of forks in the shape of a smiley face on her  bed and just be like “not this shit again”

doodlingleluke:

assorted sand sibs headcanons part 3:

  • Temari has the largest feet in the family
  • Kankuro knows how to sew ( I guess its a part of making your own puppets??) 
  • He once made Temari a dress for her birthday (after her own design, of course)
  • All three of them have ridden camels, and they often use expressions like “this smells like camel”  (if someone askes them “what does a camel smell like??” they’ll just reply “you dont wanna know”)
  • When shoving Konoha people around in suna, Kankuro will sometimes start fucking with them and like, pick up some sand and smell it and go ” the sand is salty, that means a storm is coming”
  • Gaara thinks sandstorms are cozy.
  • Being a puppetmaster is all about control, and likewise Kankuro needs to have total control of all his stuff. Even though Temari thinks his room looks pretty messy, he has a system worked and will seriously freak out if someone messes it up.
  • They own a set of matching towels, bathrobes and pajamas. 
  • They even have some matching underwear because hey, you don’t say no to a good 3 for 1 deal.
  • Kankuro watches romcoms with Temari (Gaara doesn’t really understand them) and he always tears up at the end while Temari pretends like she doesn’t notice.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City police officer was charged Friday with 16 counts including first-degree rape and sexual battery after being accused of assaulting at least eight women while on patrol.

Daniel Holtzclaw, 27, also faces charges of forcible oral sodomy and indecent exposure. Holtzclaw, a former standout football player in high school and college, was arrested Aug. 21. He remained in custody on a $5 million cash bond Friday, according to jail records.

He is accused of stopping women, who were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, while on duty in Oklahoma City. Prosecutors allege that he raped two women and either fondled others or forced them to expose themselves, and police said there may be more victims.
