Surveillance Tape Shows John Crawford Was Shopping When Police Gunned Him Down In Ohio Walmart
Image Credit: Whio.com
I first wrote about John Crawfordon August 7, after learning of his shooting death in an Walmart in Beaver Creek, Ohio. While much of the…
From the article:
The video shows that Crawford was not menacing, threatening or harassing anyone at any time while he was in the store. He was doing his shopping and minding his own business.
The footage also shows that John Crawford was not even facing the police when he was shot, ten times, in the back. These officers ruthlessly gunned this man down before ever allowing him a chance to respond. The air gun e was carrying was one that cameras show he picked up inside the store. At the time the police killed him, he was leaning on the gun, with the barrel pointed down, talking on the phone to his family. He never even knew what was coming.
Case after case after case. I see these young black men gunned down for no fucking reason and every time the cops walk away from it vindicated by our racist judicial system. He could have been holding a fucking toaster instead of an airsoft gun, he could have been a world famous brain surgeon, he could have been a football superstar. It doesn’t fucking matter who he was, the cops would get away with it cause he’s black.
Fuck this system and fuck these racist, trigger happy cops.

AvaLynn was attacked by another student on the school playground. We are fighting for answers and for greater supervision at school.
My friend Lacey Harris’s 5 year old daughter was brutalized by another child on the playground at school this week, in Pascagoula, Mississippi. Her face is swollen and bruised beyond recognition, and the only thing the school can tell her is that they “are investigating”
This sweet little 5 year old girl is terrified to return to school. She is in pain and she has been MAIMED. This needs IMMEDIATE media attention. The school and local news are ignoring the mother’s and loved ones’ cries for help. This family needs justice for what has been done to their poor little angel, and not just to be swept under the rug, as the school district is attempting to do. PLEASE shine some light on this situation and force school administration and news media to get some answers!
The mother has started a GoFundMe page to request help for paying medical bills and legal fees, as it looks as though she’s going to have to pursue this route in order to get any justice at all for her little girl. Please, please, share this link on your page. Even if people are unable to donate, please just help us get the word out on what is going on with this poor family.
This is really heartbroken for me and extremely hard to look at.
This is the link to Ava’s donation page.
Please donate and share and PRAY!
God bless you all!
she’s just a baby!!!! :(
I’ll bet you anything this poor little girl was targeted for being mixed. I went through it, and I know others who’ve gone through it. There’s a whole lot of hatred in this world towards kids who supposedly have the ‘best’ of both.
Oh my god babyyyyyy
I would pull my child from that school so fucking fast. Don’t even get me started on the fucking lawsuits.

Tuesday August 26th, the Belgian feminist activist group Lilith’S took Liège airport by storm to condemn the airport authorities’ role in supplying arms to Israel. Under a banner bearing the slogan “HOW MANY TONS OF WEAPONS FOR SO MANY LITERS OF BLOOD ? “, the activists spilled a hundred liters of fake blood, creating a red pool to symbolize the slaughter committed by Israel in Palestine.
this is so awesome that I can’t even begin to comprehend. Applause for them.
but who’s going to be cleaning this up?
it’s certainly not going to be the airport authorities nor these ~feminist activists~
i guess one could assume it’s going to be the minimum/low wage airport cleaners who likely have absolutely done nothing to contribute to the supplying of arms and yet will have to probably work extra hard doing extra hours to get this all cleaned up
and hey what d’you wanna bet that the majority of these cleaners will be WoC
^ This is all 100% correct. Thank you for reminding me. I screwed up here.
See, now this would be really incredible if they offered to clean it afterwards. That would make it truly revolutionary.

"Hysteria" by Muse
"It’s holding me, morphing me, and forcing me to strive, to be endlessly, cold within, and dreaming I’m alive…"
One of the best songs of all time.

When I was a kid I thought your 20s were supposed to be fun, not filled with perpetual anxiety about financial stability and constantly feeling like an unaccomplished piece of shit.
That’s because it was fun for baby boomers and they basically gave us this impression it would always be like that, but then they ruined the economy.
