While two police officers have their weapons trained on him, Kajieme Powell looks back to see bystanders behind him in the line of fire.
He then walks sideways, stepping over the wall to change the angle of the policemen’s guns.
Kajieme then takes two steps towards the officers when he is shot. 
Kajieme Powell showed more concern for others than the police officers who were sworn to safeguard lives.

One of the reasons your tuition is high and classes are getting cut.

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME

fact checked and…apparently this is completely correct.

And people wonder and complain when I am “down” on sports.

Does this include adjuncts? Because they don’t make any more than grad students and are teaching most of your classes.

Happy labor day, kids.Hope you’re not starting your freshman year at rip-off U.

femme dyke in need to get out of abusive situation

femmevulcan:

Hi everyone,

 My name is Ezra. I’m 24, agender, lesbian, vegan straight edge and disabled. I’m desperately looking for a place to stay even if it’s for a few days with a queer person in VA Beach/Norfolk VA area (please don’t comment if you live in Richmond I have no way of getting to Richmond).

Long story short I live with a physically/verbally and emotionally abusive alcoholic roommate at the moment who has put threats against my life and has physically hurt me. I need a place to stay with some like minded queers that don’t mind that I’m vegan and don’t drink. I’m very friendly and don’t mind doing odd chores around the house. If you want money I’m on disability at the moment and can only provide 250$ but hopefully it will help. I also have a pet lizard (she’s a skink) named Mortica that I would die if I parted with, so if there is a place for her as well I would be so grateful.

BREAKING: LA Cops Shot An Unarmed Black Man, And They Are Being Even More Secretive Than Police In Ferguson

Outrage escalated in Ferguson, Missouri, as city officials waited a full week to release the name of the officer who shot and killed Michael Brown. But it took even longer for Los Angeles to release the names of two officers involved in the shooting of another black man believed to be unarmed.

On Thursday — more than two weeks after Ezell Ford was fatally shot — police announced that the names of the officers were Sharlton Wampler and Antonio Villegas, both in the gang enforcement unit. As in Michael Brown’s case, police allege that Ford was reaching for their gun — not that he had his own. But witnesses say the 25-year-old man who strugged with mental illness was laying on the ground when he was shot, and that they saw no struggle. Witness Leroy Hill told the Huffington Post that he stood across the street as officers beat Ford, at one point yelling “shoot him.”

“So as he was walking down the street, the police approached him, whatever was said I couldn’t hear it, but the cops jumped out of the car and rushed him over here into this corner,” Hill said. “They had him in the corner and were beating him, busted him up, for what reason I don’t know he didn’t do nothing. The next thing I know I hear a ‘pow!’ while he’s on the ground. They got the knee on him. And then I hear another ‘pow!’ No hesitation. And then I hear another ‘pow!’ Three times.”

Initially, a press release from the Los Angeles Police Department stated only that a “struggle ensued” and that, “It is unknown if the suspect had any gang affiliations,” implicitly raising the possibility of gang activity. But people in Ford’s neighborhood told the Huffington Post Ford wasn’t remotely involved in gang activity. In a later statement, police indicated that Ford grabbed one of the officers during the stop, after which they fell to the ground. “During the struggle, they fell to the ground and the individual attempted to remove the officer’s handgun from its holster. The partner officer then fired his handgun and the officer on the ground fired his backup weapon at the individual,” the statement says. After the shots were fired, police called for an ambulance and Ford died at the hospital, the release stated.

Police still haven’t released autopsy results. And they say they don’t plan to. “Police have also placed a security hold on Ford’s autopsy to prevent coroner’s officials from publicly releasing information about Ford’s wounds,” according to the Los Angeles Times.

In explaining their reasons for delaying the release of the names of the two officers involved in the shooting, a police spokesman cited a rap video made by a South LA rapper that referred to Ford as “cousin.” The rap is entitled “Fuck Tha Police,” and memorializes Ford and other young African Americans who have died at police hands. The rappers wear t-shirts that read “save black boys,” and among the lyrics are “To tell the truth, shit, we all really need to unite. Cause if not, shit, we all gonna die.” The Los Angeles Police Protective League sent an email to its members warning that the video — which it alleged was created by “a Los Angeles street gang” — raises “safety concerns for all officers” because they simulate a pistol with their hands and say “Fuck tha Police.”

But rapper Ceebo Tha Rapper told the Huffington Post, “I didn’t intend to threaten them in a physical or violent way,” and that the hand gestures demonstrate the frustration felt when police point real guns at members of his community. He said no one in the video is a member of a gang, although he does intend to “attack them through courts and going through the right procedures.”

“In the video, yeah, we’re using our hands to make gestures like we’re holding a gun, but what about when the police jump out on us and put actual guns in our face?” he said.

Ford’s mother said Ford exhibited signs of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, both of which run in the family. His mother described as a kind and “free spirited” guy who distanced himself from others in his teen years due to his mental illness.

Hundreds have protested and held community forums in Los Angeles in the wake of Ford’s death, calling for the release of the names of the officers and other information about why Ford was shot. The city is no stranger to police shootings — particularly in South Los Angeles.

There have been at least 303 people killed in the Los Angeles area in officer-involved shootings since 2007, according to a Los Angeles Times database. And a week before Ford’s death, another unarmed man, Omar Abrego, was allegedly beaten to death by police in the same South Los Angeles neighborhood after he was pulled over on his way home from work.

“I’m sick and tired of the police killing our people off,” one protester, Nicole Tinson, told the Los Angeles Times.

She pointed out the sexism in video games, so men threatened her until she fled her home

On Monday, Anita Sarkeesian posted a segment titled “Women as Background Decoration.” It examined how gratuitous sexual abuse and violence permeates contemporary video games. By the next day, she had received so many violent threats that she had to flee her home. And these weren’t idle Internet threats — some contained accurate identifying information about Sarkeesian’s home and family, enough for law enforcement to get involved.

But she’s not wrong | Follow @micdotcom

True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.

This vine got taken down.

I think that’s fucking important to note, that this vine got taken down. I saw it and it languished in my drafts for a while because it fell through the cracks.

Remember this. Remember that they’re taking down protest videos. Remember that they’re trying to control the narrative. Remember, keep posting, keep sharing, keep talking about Ferguson. Don’t let the story die.
