Ferguson Police have dogs and shotguns. The unarmed crowd is raising their hands.
For anyone not following the Mike Brown story on Twitter: a 17 year old black boy named Mike Brown, who was supposed to start college tomorrow, was shot to death in Ferguson, Missouri by police while jaywalking. He was unarmed. He was shot 9 times.
Initial media reports claimed that an 18 year old black man had been shot and killed while fleeing police after shoplifting.
People in the neighborhood, including members of Mike Brown’s family, came out of their homes and began to protest, shouting “no justice, no peace,” and keeping their hands in the air.
Media reports claimed that a violent mob quickly formed around the shooting location shouting “kill the police.”
Spread this. Tell the truth about what happened to this boy. Tell the truth about what is happening NOW. The police and the mainstream media is painting him as a criminal, and his community as a violent mob.
SPREAD THIS. Don’t let them lie.

That’s Dara Norris, voice of both Dad and Cosmo, and also the janitor from Ned’s Declassified, m’friend.
I love everything about this.
HE WAS THREE CHARACTERS THAT WERE MY CHILDHOOD. EXCUSE ME WHILE I CRY.
…also Buddah Bob on Big Time Rush.
“ I cannot cry anymore.
The clouds have sworn to grant the pain
I feel over the land of our crops,
And it is our bitter olives that travel overseas,
Beyond exotic lands, but it is my cries that stay still.
Before the rising of the Sun, I wake by the will of
My Lord, to stand. And where peace comforts the
Air of humanity thousands of miles away,
It is the sound of blood that thickens the air that
I breathe in. I promise you my eyes have hardened,
But I have been told that the Most Merciful will
Look to see what is in my heart. My heart, it hurts
And so the soil beneath me has sworn to
Stand up and right every wrong that had
Lashed out at me, and it is the green grass that has
Shown me happiness in death.
But it was our Lord who promised us justice.
It is the Loving One who shall heal the black wounds,
The Giver shall give.
They have taken my mother, my father,
My brother, my sister
And I cannot cry anymore.
They have taken my tears,
But surely the rivers of Paradise have promised me
A home there besides their heavenly waters.
I cannot cry anymore, I tell you. They have taken my tears.
But Oh humanity, the Giver has given.
They have taken my tears and so I laugh,
Because for me, it is my humble abode that awaits patiently.
But for them, what is to become of the oppressors?
And my Lord knows best… ”
I cannot cry anymore. -Oh Palestine! (via thisis-mylullaby)
