i want someone who will lie on the floor w/ me and talk about life and art and film and kiss me like everywhere
It’s not just their refusal to name the officer who killed Brown or their decision not to interview Johnson. More important than either of those is the continuing battle we have seen on the street between residents and police, night after night, since that cop shot Brown. The Ferguson police are armed to the teeth with military weaponry and equipment. They’ve restricted airspace above the city and told journalists they can’t come in. They have treated the people that they are sworn to protect like enemy combatants on a battlefield. They have disrupted peaceful protests. They have done everything possible to inflame tensions instead of easing them.
I don’t trust the Ferguson police. I don’t think they care what happened to Michael Brown. In a city that is two-thirds black with a police force that is overwhelmingly white, it isn’t surprising that a death like this occurred. It’s inevitable.
I don’t know how much of Dorian Johnson’s account is true. Eyewitness accounts are always unreliable, and certainly Brown’s friends and family have all the reason in the world to paint his actions in a positive light. But the account the police have told, with a teenager going for an officer’s gun, isn’t remotely credible. And with police continuing to show zero respect to the people of Ferguson, they aren’t giving us any reason to believe they’d tell the truth.
I remember one day I was sitting in the living room and my brother was just about to go to the store. My father caught him on the way out and told him to not take his backpack to the store. I couldn’t understand this at all. I thought it was the strangest thing to tell somebody to not bring a bag…
people who use the xD face are still naive and full of life. they are happier than us. do not rain on their parade
