Now Playing Tracks

Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson testified for almost four hours Tuesday in front of a St. Louis County grand jury investigating the Aug. 9 shooting of Michael Brown, a source with knowledge of the investigation said Wednesday.

Wilson was not obligated to testify, and has also spoken with St. Louis County investigators twice and federal investigators once, the source said. The source said that Wilson had been “cooperative.”

You just read all that correctly. The murderer of Michael Brown, Officer Darren Wilson, testified for the St. Louis County grand jury that will possibly charge the officer with first-degree murder. 

This means that the person responsible for 19-year-old Michael Brown’s death testified before the ten eyewitnesses who either saw or heard Officer Wilson shooting Michael Brown. This is also a possible sign that the grand jury may not charge or indict Officer Darren Wilson. 

If they fail to charge Officer Wilson, it would be the latest injustice in a huge line of injustices against African-Americans in America. If they do charge Officer Wilson, hopefully they throw the book at him. 

Regardless of whether Wilson is charged or not, there are other Officer Wilsons in other murder cases that need charged, along with Officer Wilson. There are other Michael Browns. There are other Aiyana Stanley-Jones. There are other Renisha McBrides. There are other Trayvon Martins. All people of color who have been injured or are murder victims, especially African-Americans, need to have their respective justices as well. [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]

I am going to play this new game where I won’t trust a single thing gentiles say until they prove that they’re not “one of those gentiles”. 

"Tumblr fave Mark Ruffalo makes a good point… but I hear he’s a gentile. Can you prove he’s not ‘one of those’?"

"Okay, your post is pretty good… but I see in your description that you don’t mention if you’re Jewish. So you’re a gentile? Show me receipts that you’re not an antisemite."

the Lakota woman who was raped as an inmate at Fall River corrections facility (South Dakota) is testifying against the white male guard that raped her today; please send prayers of support and love her way, as what she is about to do can be traumatizing and promises to be emotionally challenging.

Any updates?
