I wish I’d learned the virtues of vanity earlier in life.
That if I think I’m beautiful, no one can sell me things to make me pretty.
That if I think I’m gorgeous, I won’t waste my time on relationships looking for validation.
That if I think I’m lovely, it doesn’t matter if anyone else disagrees.
Richard Haste, an NYPD officer, killed an unarmed black teen (Ramarley Graham) in front of his grandmother and 6-year-old brother at point blank range over marijuana. The landlady, Paulet Minzie, 55, ran out the shower with only a towel after hearing the gunshots. Officers then put a gun to her head and told her to put her hands up. It wasn’t until she told them that there were cameras surveilling them, that they put their guns down.
Court papers say “[He\] immediately lowered his weapon. His demeanor completely changed, and he alerted his colleague that they may be on camera,”. The footage later revealed that Graham walked calmly to his apartment followed by police barging in without a warrant, contradicting the officers original claim that the teenager was running away from him.

Haste was freed on $50,000 bail yesterday after pleading not guilty. Police cheered for him as the parents of Graham wept in the court room.
Murderers. Evil filthy murderers. I hate the police.
FUCK THE POLICE
And 2.5 years later and this murderer is still free. The original indictment was thrown out on a technicality and the grand jury declined to re-indict him. He’s gotten away with murder. (Source)
This is why every officer should be required to wear a camera. But they can’t have any access. The footage needs to be held and reviewed by a third party if a situation arises.
Can’t stop, won’t stop (9.22): Updates from tonight’s town hall are slow coming due to the virtual media black out, but it seems like the name of tonight’s game was “Pass the Buck.” Hard to heal when no one’s willing to take responsibility for their wrongs. #staywoke #farfromover
okay but how can they even begin to deny having military gear when there are literally hundreds of pictures of cannisters and riot gear???
is this some semantic-based loophole?!
"Our police department doesn’t use or possess tear gas, rubber bullets, stingers, or any of the items used during protest."
So are they admitting those items were used during the protests? Or are they saying “we don’t use them during protests [but we didn’t consider those times protests]”
Like what in the holy fuck is happening?
