    International hacker group Anonymous claims to have obtained audio files of police dispatch and EMS during the Mike Brown shooting.

    They have said it will be released at 2:00pm ET

    Wow

    Good.

    UPDATED skip to around 9:35, they are asking for crowd control, at 11:20 they found out from the news, not the police. listen around 21:25 for request for more cars, it’s a very long video (apx 2 hours) so you only get a little information at a time, so far what people have heard and gathered is that they called for more cars and crowd control long before they called an EMT

    clehmentine:

    Alright, i’m gonna sit down and basically explain the situation in this ask so everyone of my followers knows why i’m so pissed.

    Michael Brown, a 17 - 18 year old african american boy was unlawfully shot (8-10 times supposedly) by police in St Louis, Missouri on saturday, august 9th, 2014. He was unarmed, and had done nothing to attract suspicion other than the fact that he was black. His body was left in the street for 4 hours. (beware: somewhat graphic image linked)

    There are several claims from witnesses (see: Dorian Johnson’s account and video [HIGHLY RECOMMEND READING UP ON HIS ACCOUNT, ITS VERY SPECIFIC] — Brown’s friend who experienced the situation first hand, La’Toya Cash and Phillip Walker— Ferguson residents nearby the incident),  that fall together in generally close claims. However, the only one who’s claim seems out of place is the police officer’s who shot Brown. Who, by the way, is put off on paid administrative leave AND who’s name remained under anonymity for his safety (However, attorney Benjamin Crump is looking for a way to force release his name). He claims that Brown began to wrestle the officer for his gun and tried attacking him after he told Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson (22) to “get the f*ck on the sidewalk”.

    According to Johnson, after a minor confrontation on the officer’s part where he grabbed Brown by the neck and then by the shirt, the officer pulled his gun on Brown and shot him at point blank range on the right side of his body. Brown and Johnson were able to get away briefly and started running. However, Brown was shot in the back, supposedly disabling him from getting very far. He turned around with his arms in the air and said “I don’t have a gun, stop shooting!” By this point, Brown and the officer were face to face as the cop shot him several times in the face and chest until he was finally dead. Johnson ran to his apartment and by the sound of his account, seemingly had some sort of panic attack. Later he emerged from his home to see Brown still laying in the streets. People were gathered with their cellphones, screaming at the police.

    According to msnbc, the police refuse to interview Johnson at all, despite his amazing courage to come forward. They didn’t wanna hear it. They only listened to the cop’s account of it all and were vague with the media on what they thought happened. They’ve also refused to commit to a timeline in releasing autopsy results and other investigation information.

    Numerous rumors are sweeping around such as Brown stealing candy from a QuickTrip, the store he emerged from calling the cops on him, Brown reaching for a gun, Brown attacking the cop first, ect. But these have all been debunked. (I know a lot of these have been debunked, but im having a hard time finding sources. if anyone could help out and link some legit ones id be SO grateful)

    The event in and of itself was terrible, but now it has escalated beyond belief. Around 100 or more people, mostly black, went to the police station to protest peacefully. Things quickly turned bad as martial law got involved and authorities were bringing in K9s, tanks, heavy artillery, ect. The heavy police presence only made things worse as riots began to break out and looting and vandalism started. [ x ] [ x ] [ x ]

    Now, as of very recently, the media has been banned from Ferguson. There is also a No-Fly zone above Ferguson for the reason of “ TO PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTIVITIES ” as said on the Federal Aviation Commission’s website. Cop cars are lined up on the borders to prevent people from entering/leaving. Media outlets are being threatened with arrest. It completely violates our amendments and everything.

    It’s becoming increasingly scary and difficult to find out whats going on over there. I’m afraid this is all the information I have, though. If anybody else knows anything about the situation, please feel free to add on or correct any mistakes i’ve made as i’m no expert on writing these things.

    And as a personal favor, i’d really appreciate anyone to give this a reblog in order to spread the word. I think it’s a shame that this is going on in our own country yet so few people know about it. Help me make this topic huge and get this as much attention as possible.

    the sooner you realize that the criminal justice system is about maintaining order (racial/economic/social order), not about maintaining justice

    the more the way this country works will make sense to you

    What Gorgeous Thing

    I do not know what gorgeous thing
    the bluebird keeps saying,
    his voice easing out of his throat,
    beak, body into the pink air
    of the early morning. I like it
    whatever it is. Sometimes
    it seems the only thing in the world
    that is without dark…

    the love misplaced,

    there is the covenant of duskbirds.
    The moon comes over the mountain
    like a big peach, and I want to tell you
    what I couldn’t say the night we rushed
    North, how I love the seriousness of your fingers
    and the way you go into yourself,
    calling my half-name like a secret."

    this is a living sadness
    a hungry dog wearing 
    the ribs inside me

    every day, i soothe it
    promising in flat song:
    not today, maybe tomorrow
    i will let you out

    stay, i command

    uncertain it will run
    or attack

    But catcalling and street harassment are just about complimenting ladies and never about establishing power or male dominance, right?

    But women should just stand up for themselves against potentially violent harassers if they don’t like being catcalled, right?

    But catcalling only hurts the women who let it bother them, right?

    But catcalling is harmless, right?
