You realize that everything the police are doing in Ferguson is carefully calculated, right? They’re purposely turning peaceful protests into riots. They’re purposely committing violence to incite violence. From saying ‘We won’t be answering 911 calls,’ which is a very clever way to set themselves up to be able to say, ‘We were afraid for our safety - any call could really be an ambush, our lives were in danger’ right down to the camouflage and the military tanks and wearing more body armor than a soldier in a war zone. Its exactly why they’re going for a media blackout - yet allowing certain photos through - they WANT you to see their tanks. They want you to see their riot gear. They WANT you to see a war-zone. They’re trying to sell the world the idea that this community is inherently and constantly a source of violence and turmoil - they want you to think that they [the police] are being attacked daily in a place so vicious they need full body armor. You know why? Because then, at the end of the day, you might just be able to believe the story they’re going to spin. They’re going to tell you that this (white) officer goes to work in this war zone every day - that he spends every working moment in constant fear for his life. They’re going to tell you that Michael Brown attacked this officer. And then they’re going to bring up everything that has happened in the aftermath and try to use it to convince you that he shot that little boy because he was afraid for his life. They’re setting up a defense. You mark my words, they’re trying to set up a defense.

God bless Bobby Goepfert (p.s. he’s always like this. Give em a follow) 

"For an all out Vampire battle in the 21st century, you would think the Revolutionary war battle formations would be outdated." I mean I think he should narrate every single movie from now on. He is the next Morgan Freeman.

Bless the person who put the post together. I was following it on twitter the other night but was too tired to assemble it.

Women are actually being blamed for the USCB shooting.

There are actual comments from men supporting what Rodger did and saying that if women had just thrown him some pity sex he never would have MURDERED NINE WOMEN.

And that is SUCH bullshit.
