here’s a quick “fact list” (or what i presume is true) about the whole ferguson thing (for followers’ benefits and my own):
- mike brown was shot 6 times and twice in the head (which is apparently a violation of the law of war or something)
- hate groups are infiltrating ferguson and throwing molotov cocktails to screw things up
- some brave brave man picked up burning tear gas and threw it away from a crowd of children
- media are being put in a playpen which is apparently the parking lot of the market
- curfew was set a few days ago and oh no it did not go well
- they’re sending national guard in?
- police in ferguson are so fully equipped it literally looks like a war zone
- people are breaking into mcdonalds and looting
- BUT ONLY BECAUSE THEY’RE TRYING TO HELP PEOPLE WHO GOT TEAR GAS IN THEIR EYES
- amnesty international deployed human rights teams to ferguson (first deployment within america)
- police are being fucking dirty liars and making up excuses to justify their violence
- people from GAZA are tweeting tear gas advice to ferguson
- Tibetans have flown in and are apparently standing and protesting with them?
- apparently they’re arresting innocent people just randomly off the streets
- reporters are also being held at gunpoint

i recently saw an article about how obama is becoming increasingly lazy and ”not using his power to make america a good influence in the world" and i call so much bullshit on that america cannot become a good influence if ALL THIS SHIT is happening DOMESTICALLY
seriously its 2014 this should not be a problem anymore racism shouldnt be this large of a problem ANYWHERE.
