What they won’t show you on CNN tonight: Ferguson residents line a parade of roses down W Florissant, leading to where Mike Brown was taken from this world. #staywoke #powerful #insolidarity
Earlier I read some shit about how people were glad the world was rid of another “useless thug”. Look at this. These people aren’t “useless thugs”. These people cared enough to do this much for someone in their community. Anonymous people on the internet would never know what to truly think about Mike Brown, but these people would, and this is how they’re honoring his memory.
krystleis tagged me in some questions and there were rules and stuff but screw the rules I have memes
1. What is the first thing that you want people to notice about you?
"Oh he’s kind of quiet and reserved but he’s pretty nice!" I guess is how I assume people think of me at first.
2. Is there a song or soundtrack that has really affected you and if so, what is it?
The FLCL soundtrack is so good and generally always gets me deep in thought about the subject matter of the show or being nostalgic about middle school/early high school.
3. How do you like to relax?
Just watching something. I’ll usually watch some sort of let’s play, speedrun, or anime if I want to take a break from everything.
4. What games do you really want in your library? New, old, upcoming, whatever I want to see your wishlists.
I still want famicom carts of Rockman 1-6 (and a famicom to go with them). I also want to get more into shmups and fighting games, and so I’ve been thinking about picking up Ultra Street Fighter IV and a handful of bullet hell games. Probably Dodonpachi and Mushihimesama if I had to pick any that I had my eye on.
5. How would you describe your clothing style? Are you Style Savvy.
I’m not style savvy but I’m not a slob either. It’s pretty much always tees and jeans but I’m picky about both of those. Also I guess I do have some slightly nicer looking outfits (thanks overtheflagpole!) but those aren’t worn too terribly often. Only when I feel like looking fly
6. How do you like your coffee?
Iced coffee is best coffee.
7. How good are you at cooking? Are you like me and can fail at cooking sandwiches.
I don’t really cook :( I’m pretty sure I’d be competent with a recipe to follow but I don’t do it often enough to know.
8. Can you play any instruments?
9. Who is your favorite voice actor and is there a a role that you immediately associate them with and have they recorded any songs that make you melt.
I don’t think I have a favorite voice actor, there’s just a handful of people that I recognized and am constantly surprised when I remember what they did in previous games/shows I’ve watched.
10. How often do you read?
Not very often. The last thing I read was a fighting game primer someone put together, and before that I finally finished up the entire hitchhikers guide “trilogy”. That was about 2 months ago though.
11. What game are you playing the most right now and how is itttt?
Tales of Xillia and holy god damn these characters. I love all of them so much they all have relatable problems and uuuuuuuuuuuu

Alright, i’m gonna sit down and basically explain the situation in this ask so everyone of my followers knows why i’m so pissed.
Michael Brown, a 17 - 18 year old african american boy was unlawfully shot (8-10 times supposedly) by police in St Louis, Missouri on saturday, august 9th, 2014. He was unarmed, and had done nothing to attract suspicion other than the fact that he was black. His body was left in the street for 4 hours. (beware: somewhat graphic image linked)
There are several claims from witnesses (see: Dorian Johnson’s account and video [HIGHLY RECOMMEND READING UP ON HIS ACCOUNT, ITS VERY SPECIFIC] — Brown’s friend who experienced the situation first hand, La’Toya Cash and Phillip Walker— Ferguson residents nearby the incident), that fall together in generally close claims. However, the only one who’s claim seems out of place is the police officer’s who shot Brown. Who, by the way, is put off on paid administrative leave AND who’s name remained under anonymity for his safety (However, attorney Benjamin Crump is looking for a way to force release his name). He claims that Brown began to wrestle the officer for his gun and tried attacking him after he told Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson (22) to “get the f*ck on the sidewalk”.
According to Johnson, after a minor confrontation on the officer’s part where he grabbed Brown by the neck and then by the shirt, the officer pulled his gun on Brown and shot him at point blank range on the right side of his body. Brown and Johnson were able to get away briefly and started running. However, Brown was shot in the back, supposedly disabling him from getting very far. He turned around with his arms in the air and said “I don’t have a gun, stop shooting!” By this point, Brown and the officer were face to face as the cop shot him several times in the face and chest until he was finally dead. Johnson ran to his apartment and by the sound of his account, seemingly had some sort of panic attack. Later he emerged from his home to see Brown still laying in the streets. People were gathered with their cellphones, screaming at the police.
According to msnbc, the police refuse to interview Johnson at all, despite his amazing courage to come forward. They didn’t wanna hear it. They only listened to the cop’s account of it all and were vague with the media on what they thought happened. They’ve also refused to commit to a timeline in releasing autopsy results and other investigation information.
Numerous rumors are sweeping around such as Brown stealing candy from a QuickTrip, the store he emerged from calling the cops on him, Brown reaching for a gun, Brown attacking the cop first, ect. But these have all been debunked. (I know a lot of these have been debunked, but im having a hard time finding sources. if anyone could help out and link some legit ones id be SO grateful)
The event in and of itself was terrible, but now it has escalated beyond belief. Around 100 or more people, mostly black, went to the police station to protest peacefully. Things quickly turned bad as martial law got involved and authorities were bringing in K9s, tanks, heavy artillery, ect. The heavy police presence only made things worse as riots began to break out and looting and vandalism started. [ x ] [ x ] [ x ]
Now, as of very recently, the media has been banned from Ferguson. There is also a No-Fly zone above Ferguson for the reason of “ TO PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTIVITIES ” as said on the Federal Aviation Commission’s website. Cop cars are lined up on the borders to prevent people from entering/leaving. Media outlets are being threatened with arrest. It completely violates our amendments and everything.
It’s becoming increasingly scary and difficult to find out whats going on over there. I’m afraid this is all the information I have, though. If anybody else knows anything about the situation, please feel free to add on or correct any mistakes i’ve made as i’m no expert on writing these things.
And as a personal favor, i’d really appreciate anyone to give this a reblog in order to spread the word. I think it’s a shame that this is going on in our own country yet so few people know about it. Help me make this topic huge and get this as much attention as possible.
Tomoda best route ever.
I was bored so I tried really hard to become a dinosaur.
