imagine if mike brown’s family had considered deleting their son’s social media before the media got to it

that would turn heads

"what are they trying to hide?"

"a teenager with no internet profile? seems fishy"

"did he keep a low profile because he was in a gang?"

but no one thinks its weird that darren wilson’s internet EVERYTHING seems to have magically vanished

I NEED YOU TO ALL READ THIS PLEASE

iamsupernaturalsbitch:

Most of you know who electricmonk333 is. She’s been a member of the SPN family for a long time and makes some amazing edits for us all.

Most of you also know the story of what happened to her just days after DCCon. If not, her post is here

Her family have put together a fundraiser for her. Here is a summary:

On May 7, 2014, Shaefali’s life was changed forever. She was visiting New Orleans with a friend, when she suddenly became very ill. She was rushed to the Tulane Medical Center and was diagnosed as having a rare condition known as Toxic Shock Syndrome triggered by the common strep A bacteria.

As a result of the pressors used to save her life, she lost blood flow to her extremities and gangrene set in. The doctors had to amputate part of her left arm, all the fingers save half a thumb on her right hand, and part of her legs.

Although Shaefali has health insurance, there are a lot of additional expenses, including the retrofit of her home to accommodate her injuries. Insurance covers only very basic prosthetics. Due to the extent of her injuries to every one of her extremities, more advanced prosthetics are necessary.

Helping Hands: Shaefali’s Prosthetics Fund

She has a 4 year old daughter I’d really like to help make sure she gets to hold again.

If you can’t afford to donate that’s fine, you could just go send her a lovely message. Please signal boost this if you would.

for those not in the know, night witches were russian lady bombers who bombed the shit out of german lines in WW2. Thing is though, they had the oldest, noisiest, crappest planes in the entire world. The engines used to conk out halfway through their missions, so they had to climb out on the wings mid flight to restart the props. the planes were also so noisy that to stop germans from hearing them combing and starting up their anti aircraft guns, they’d climb up to a certain height, coast down to german positions, drop their bombs, restart their engines in midair, and get the fuck out of dodge.
their leader flew over 200 missions and was never captured.

But, remember, women never did anything in history.

I’m reblogging this again. Always reblogging. Always

This is so bad ass why don’t they teach you this shit. Like damn talk about putting your life on the line.

Actually, the Night Witches were even more badass than the OP said.
The planes? They were NOT noisy, nor were they in crappy shape. The women who maintained the planes did an incredible job under appalling circumstances:
The winter of 1942 was brutally cold, with temperatures plunging as low as -54F and countless snow storms. One night in March of that year the women were called upon to save the aircraft from being blown over by gale-force winds. Several women would literally lie on the wings and horizontal stabilizers of each plane, using the weight of their bodies to keep the planes from blowing away. When the wind subsided, the women looked like snowmen, but the planes were intact. Their respite was brief however. By noon the storm had resumed, and again the women rushed to the airfield to save the planes. The storm finally blew itself out around midnight, and the exhausted women, soaked to the skin and half frozen, could finally rest.
Also, the engines did NOT “conk out in mid-air.” Cutting the engines, gliding to the target, dropping bombs and then starting the engines again was one of the main tactics of the Night Witches. 
The Witches developed the technique of flying close to their intended targets, then cutting their engines. Silently they would glide to their targets and release their bombs. Then they would restart their engines and fly away. The first warning the Germans had of an impending raid was the sound of the wind whistling against the wing bracing wires of the Po-2s, and by then it was too late.
They also flew very close to the ground and made turns that were below the stalling speed of German planes. The planes themselves were non-reflective and emitted almost no heat. Tracking them and attacking them was extraordinarily difficult
As for the leader flying 200 missions? That’s nothing.
The 588th flew thousands of combat bombing missions. They fought non-stop for months, sometimes flying 15 to 18 missions on the same night. They flew obsolete Polikarpov Po-2 wooden biplanes that were otherwise used as trainers. They could only carry two bombs that weighed less than a ton altogether. Most of the women who survived the war had, by the end, flown almost a thousand missions each.
In conclusion? BAD. ASS.

Black officer on Ferguson 'divide' 

[D]o you feel like an outsider among your colleagues in the police force?

I do, very much so. I don’t relate with a lot of them, I haven’t lived similar lives to them.

It may be a combination of being African American and a woman, but there are certain events I am not included in, or even informed of.

Maybe in their growing up they didn’t have a lot of interactions with African-American females from the inner city - they’re uncomfortable with it, but instead of trying to address it, they avoid it, even fear it.

So when black people in Ferguson say the issue is not just about Michael Brown, but the way they have been treated as a community, do you agree?

I can completely agree with that.

assleighhh:

So did anyone hear about the officer who placed a woman under arrest for breastfeeding in NYC? She went to get on her bus, he pulled her back by the collar of her shirt, and as a result she dropped her 3 month old baby. He still placed her under arrest while her baby was lying on the concrete with a cracked skull. Her daughter died at the hospital while she was at the police station. He’s on PAID leave.

wtf. you can read about it here

Yeah, about that story—which has been taken down, by the way—

It’s a fake.

It was originally reported in the National Report, which is a satire site that people keep mistaking for an actual news site. It then got picked up by other sites, including Political Ears, which seems to make its money from capitalizing on anything that remotely sounds like news. The story sounded good, so they posted it.

But no child died in NYC because her mother got busted for breastfeeding.. Know why?

Because public breastfeeding is LEGAL in New York State. Check out the laws:

N.Y. Civil Rights Law § 79-e (1994) permits a mother to breastfeed her child in any public or private location. (SB 3999)


N.Y. Correction Law § 611 allows a mother of a nursing child to be accompanied by her child if she is committed to a correctional facility at the time she is breastfeeding. This law also permits a child born to a committed mother to return with the mother to the correctional facility. The child may remain with the mother until one year of age if the woman is physically capable of caring for the child. (2009 N.Y. Laws, Chap. 411; SB 1290) 


N.Y. Labor Law § 206-c (2007) states that employers must allow breastfeeding mothers reasonable, unpaid break times to express milk and make a reasonable attempt to provide a private location for her to do so.  Prohibits discrimination against breastfeeding mothers.


N.Y. Penal Law § 245.01 et seq. excludes breastfeeding of infants from exposure offenses.


N.Y. Public Health Law § 2505 provides that the Maternal and Child Health commissioner has the power to adopt regulations and guidelines including, but not limited to donor standards, methods of collection, and standards for storage and distribution of human breast milk.


N.Y. Public Health Law § 2505-a creates the Breastfeeding Mothers Bill of Rights and requires it to be posted in a public place in each maternal health care facility. The commissioner must also make the Breastfeeding Mothers Bill of Rights available on the health department’s website so that health care facilities and providers may include such rights in a maternity information leaflet. (2009 N.Y. Laws, Chap. 292AB 789)

of course fashion is sociologiclly fascinating! it varies depending upon our race, nationality, gender, social status, temperament, body shape. There are people who can tell you what a person is like if you show them the person’s wardrobe.

Clothing is such an integral part of our culture that it cannot escape becoming part of our social systems.

it’s scary and awesome at the same time

I’m not entirely sure what point Streep’s character is supposed to be making. So the fashion industry, which designs and makes clothes, affects the design and manufacture of all clothes, and you cannot escape the industry’s choices when you buy something to wear. And?

Georgia Restores Gun Rights To Ex-Cop Who Tried To Sexually Assault A Woman With His Gun

Dennis Krauss was dispatched to the home of a woman who called 911 alleging that her husband had hit her. Rather than arresting the husband, however, Krauss asked the victim to ride with him in his police car. Once she was in his car, “Krauss told the victim that he could take her to jail if he wanted to” or, if she did not want to be arrested, she could have sex with him instead. Krauss’ words, according to the court opinion, were “[w]e can go to the motel or you can go to jail.”

At the motel, Krauss drew his service weapon and told the woman that he wanted to anally penetrate her with the gun. When she refused, and began to cry, “Krauss then pushed her back, pulled off her pants, and had sex with her.” And then he drove her home to the same husband that led her to call the police in the first place.

Krauss was convicted of sexual assault against a person in custody, and this one instance of sexual assault is far from the only allegation against him. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, “[h]is record was filled with allegations of misconduct: that he beat a prisoner so severely the man’s brain bled; that he threatened to fabricate charges against a suspect so he could sleep with the man’s wife; that he pressured at least 10 women for sex to avoid arrest.” The former cop, for his part, is unrepentant. When asked about his sexual assault conviction, he claims that “[t]here wasn’t any crime,” and that “I was dealt a bad hand.”

And yet, in July of 2013, the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles restored Krauss’ right to carry a firearm. According to a Journal-Constitution tally, he is one of 358 violent felons who regained these rights over a six year period. That includes 32 violent felons who killed someone, and 44 who committed sex crimes.

Not many people know this, but in many states, convicted felons with a record of violence lose their right to vote, but not their right to bear arms.

Meanwhile America can’t even admit that the global climate disaster is a thing… Yet we’re still arrogant enough to think we can boss an entire continent around. Ridiculous.

China is doing the same thing as the African countries. The Chinese project is called the Three-North Shelter Forest.
