Donations go to Shield of Hope, a 501c3. The charity shares the same address as a police union in St. Louis.
just to be clear, we are looking at a scenario in which the very organization tasked with investigating an officer-involved-shooting… are behind the donation drive to support the officer involved in the shooting
I just phrased that in the most neutral terms possible and it’s still absolutely damning
$3.5M minimum the murderer will be receiving as an award for a lynching.
That’s pretty much the scope of it.
ain’t that some shit

This style is so adorable! I feel like if you dress like this you will not be anxious about growing older because you’ve already made peace with your inner old lady.

And if Michael Brown was not angelic, I was practically demonic. I had my first drink when I was 11. I once brawled in the cafeteria after getting hit in the head with a steel trash can. In my junior year I failed five out of seven classes. By the time I graduated from high school, I had been arrested for assaulting a teacher and been kicked out of school (twice.) And yet no one who knew me thought I had the least bit of thug in me. That is because I also read a lot of books, loved my Commodore 64, and ghostwrote love notes for my friends. In other words, I was a human being. A large number of American teenagers live exactly like Michael Brown. Very few of them are shot in the head and left to bake on the pavement.
The “angelic” standard was not one created by the reporter. It was created by a society that cannot face itself, and thus must employ a dubious “morality” to hide its sins. It is reinforced by people who have embraced the notion of “twice as good” while avoiding the circumstances which gave that notion birth. Consider how easily living in a community “with rough patches” becomes part of a list of ostensible sins. Consider how easily “black-on-black crime” becomes not a marker of a shameful legacy of segregation but a moral failing.
