At a deposition, Ferguson’s former police chief revealed that his staff did not keep records of incidents in which officers used force against citizens, so long as no one died; in other words, there was no way of telling how often incidents like Davis’ happened.

remember shit like this when they talk about how mike brown’s shooter had no disciplinary record

WOW

Ferguson could be the beginning of a revolution, if we keep money out of the situation.

I’m sorry but I just can not support donating money every time something needs to be done. Yes I am aware that retweeting and sharing links does nothing but inform a few people, and yes I am aware that I suffer from being afraid to do anything that would put me in danger, even if it could change the world (American Lazy Syndrome). I have no solution to this stasis that keeps me from being a real activist, BUT, money is an illusion. It means nothing, because if anyone has more than you (which they do) you have wasted it. We are stuck in a society where children are forced to waste the most important developmental stages of their life brainwashing then to believe that happiness, generosity, and love are far less important than earning money. So no, I will not donate the few dollars I have to my name, so it can be wasted against the evil (stemming from cultural trauma from past generations) people with a ton of money, who are behind this latest attempt to continue their pathetic misguided, and racist beliefs. What I can do is urge anyone able and motivated enough to physically protest. Where the hell is Occupy? Why does FOX news still exist, poisoning the minds of the American Dream Guzzlers? If you can do something with your body instead of your money, DO IT NOW.

In case you haven’t already seen it come through your dashboard, iwriteaboutfeminism is doing a fine job of rounding up on-the-ground coverage of the events in Ferguson.

Pair this with links from the venerable shortformblog, fantastic as usual.
