skeletor is an inspiration to us all because he’s a skeleton but also ripped as fuck and ready to throw down
Amid growing criticism of the military-style equipment and tactics deployed by police in Ferguson, Missouri, a Democrat from Georgia plans to introduce the “Stop Militarizing Law Enforcement Act” in Congress next month.
Rep. Hank Johnson asked his all his colleagues Thursday to join him in supporting the bill, which he said in a letter “will end the free transfers of certain aggressive military equipment to local law enforcement and ensure that all equipment can be accounted for.”
Images of assault rifle-carrying camouflaged police riding through Ferguson on military vehicles similar to the IED-resistant equipment used by American armed forces in combat have proven to be a jolt of energy for a long-simmering debate about police militarization.
In his letter to Congress, Johnson signaled that he expects his bill to break through the partisan gridlock in the House.
THIS IS A GOOD THING TO CALL YOUR REPS ABOUT.
History in the making.
Call your reps, guys. This is so important
I don’t care if you’re some type of anarchist (manarchist) who is against all forms of government and refuses to engage and shit… you need to put your personal feelings aside and FUCKING CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE, okay? If you have a phone, if you have access to a phone, if you live near a mall with payphones and you have access to a couple quarters, then you have no excuse. CALL. YOUR. REPRESENTATIVE.
Do not wear contact lenses if you are in a situation where you may be tear-gassed. When I went through basic training, we were warned that there was a possibility the tear gas they were using could melt contact lenses.
OMG THIS IS MY WORST NIGHTMARE PLEASE EVERYONE DONT WEAR YOUR CONTACTS THIS IS SO DANGEROUS
*white person shoots up movie theater* oh he probably maybe had a mental disorder and rough childhood, i feel bad for him we should have seen the signs and gotten him help….
*black person gets shot unarmed* oh he probably was walking around like a gangster thug, i want a full toxicology report and i’m def gonna ignore the eye witness accounts of the incident because they are all…you know…black…and probably biased and lying.
hey you know those photos of trees where it looks like they have a big round human ASS, that's a tree disease right, what's it called
if it’s what I’m thinking of, those are called Burls if you’re murrican or Burrs if you’re from pretty much literally anywhere else
It’s less of a disease in itself and more like a sign of a disease. Usually fungal infections fuck up the tree growth and cause them
People actually steal them sometimes because some of them are super valuable. They make really cool looking carved stuff and are really dense.
what the fuck. they just chop the ass right off a tree and sell it to the tree ass black market. that’s brutal
That’s… Yeah, that’s actually pretty accurate.
People have actually been arrested for it and redwood national park gets blocked off at night because people stealing and selling tree ass on the black market is such a big problem
requesting backup for a 376 in process, that’s right we’ve got a tree ass jacker here
i have been seeing a lot of different links for different places to donate for bail and legal fees, but i haven’t been able to find anything on whether or not the funds have actually been going towards helping out the people of ferguson so
if you know of any more please add and spread them and if in doubt remember to google first
