#it's messed up
Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.
Notice something in common in these photos?
It’s not what you think
I gave it away in the third pic
That’s right! None of these cops are wearing badges or name tags! I wonder why… seems like it’d be important to wear those, since it’s even illegal not to in other states…
This is actually illegal in all states. A police officer must be marked as such with name and badge at all times unless their jurisdiction states otherwise (such as an undercover officer), and even when not wearing a badge, the officer must have the badge accessible at all times and must show the badge in order to make an arrest. Name tags are not required as long as a badge is available because the badge has the officer number on it.
This has really been bothering me. The police in Ferguson are breaking the law by concealing their identities. Everyone knows this, it’s been going on for ten days, and it appears that nobody is doing anything about it.
The police are clearly and systematically violating the first amendment rights of the press, and they are getting away with it. This has been happening for days, and nobody appears to be doing anything about it.
A police officer pointed a rifle at a journalist and told him to fuck off *while he was being filmed, so he’s easily identifiable by his superiors*, and that police officer still has a job.
I know that not all cops are bad (or even most cops), but there are clearly bad cops in Ferguson, and they’re acting with complete impunity. I don’t understand why those cops aren’t being taken off the scene, and why a higher (possibly federal) authority isn’t coming in to address these things.
#that guy is such a creep and an asshole
So, I am removing the face block out. I no longer think he is an awkward person who didn’t know what he was doing, I think he is a terrifying and aggressive person.
100% of the conversations I have had with him are posted above, with the exception of apparently I responded to a tweet he sent me? But I am not searching through those to see just how inane my response was there.
He decided to paint a picture in his head about who I am with no knowledge other than that I am a female model and I follow a few sceptics on Twitter.
Watch out for this man.
My friend gets so many crazies sometimes, I really worry for her. This guy is more asshole than human at this point. What entitled crazy bullshit.
I messed it up in such a weird way before.
Anyway Kathy made this extremely appropriate gif at my request.
WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT.
Those rants are seriously frightening and I’m so so very sorry you had to endure that Penny. That wasn’t being socially inept, that’s something more and much darker.
I saw that you were turning off messages on your fan page, now I completely understand why. I hope you’ve reported him!
Please stay safe in these bizarre times everyone.
#places to go
Grüner See (Green Lake) is a lake in Styria, Austria. In the winter you’ll find crisp, tranquil grasslands and lake that is only about 3 to 6 feet deep. However, during the spring, when the temperature rises and the snow melts, the basin of land below the mountains fills with water. The lake reaches its maximum depth of around 40 feet from mid-May to June and is claimed to look the most beautiful at this time.
