Police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, have begun wearing body cameras after weeks of unrest over the shooting death of an unarmed black teen by a white officer and sharply differing accounts of the incident, officials said on Sunday.
Michael Brown, 18, was shot multiple times by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, sparking nearly three weeks of angry protests in the St. Louis suburb and drawing global attention to race relations in the United States.
Law enforcement and witnesses gave differing accounts of what transpired before Brown was shot, with police saying the teen had struggled with the officer. Witnesses say Brown held up his hands and was surrendering when he was shot multiple times in the head and chest.
The discrepancy has revived calls for officers across the county to be outfitted with body cameras to help capture an accurate record of police-involved incidents.
I would like to know who handles the footage once recorded.
It’s not as if the police would be above altering it or making it disappear.
I hope they have literally no access whatsoever to any of the footage after it’s recorded. Otherwise this was money wasted.

The emotion and all of the sweat…. shit is hard to look at, even if its only a picture
I didn’t want to reblog this because it’s hard to look at, but people SHOULD see it.
We SHOULD see a father mourning his teenage son.
We SHOULD see how a killing like Mike’s can take a toll on not only a community, but a family.
It’s as easy for young black men to become martyrs as it is for them to become victims. They can never just be humans.
We can never just be.
The net worth of the average black household in the United States is $6,314, compared with $110,500 for the average white household, according to 2011 census data. The gap has worsened in the last decade, and the United States now has a greater wealth gap by race than South Africa did during apartheid. (Whites in America on average own almost 18 times as much as blacks; in South Africa in 1970, the ratio was about 15 times.)

“Dragon Age Inquisition Update: New Morrigan Footage, Zombie Unicorn Mounts, Save Games Across Consoles [VIDEO].
Our favorite sarcastic Witch of the Wild Morrigan gets some character-expounding in this new video from Outside Xbox. We also learn about save games, mounts, the Fade and dragons.
Is everyone excited about November 18/21 (North America and Europe, respectively) yet? If you’re not (and yeah, you totally are) - here’s some cool tidbits that’ll totally make you want to run-not-walk-or-perhaps-mount to Thedas right the Fade now.
On a character level, we learn that while Morrigan will not be a recruitable party member, she will be playing a major part in the storyline and will be seen from quite a different perspective than the perhaps slightly one-note ice queen she’s been in the past. Having a demi-god demon baby will do that to you, I suppose!
We all knew mounts were a new thing in this third Dragon Age game, but beyond just horses, we’ll be getting riding lizards and “bog unicorns” - a rotted horse corpse that has been stabbed through the head and the sword protrudes from its skull and oh deaaaarrr get to my hard drive now, game!
Additionally, the Fade is promised to be a far scarier place than the slightly confusing and by all accounts rather unpopular part of the game it was in Dragon Age: Origins. Going to make myself a target of scorn here and say that, personally, I found the giant cavern systems near Orzammar far more tedious. But at least this shows BioWare is listening!
Finally, saved your games on previous gen Xbox and now own a One? Thanks to the Dragon Age Keep, you’ll be able to import your save game decisions anyway… or “cheat” a bit by just making up your own previous decisions right on the spot - a feature that had been going around in the fan community for ages.”

Distressing Video Captures EXACTLY How Cops Treat Black People
I had to reblog this again because it just reduced me to tears.
As most of you know, I am an attorney. And I am an attorney licensed in Minnesota. This is the state where I took an oath last year to uphold state and federal laws and to protect the rights of the citizens.
It PAINS me to see this. To see these unjust cops who I for all intensive purposes, have to stand along side. When they are abusing EVERY SINGLE OUNCE of POWER. Minneapolis/St. Paul have BEEN a war zone. I’m ashamed. I’m embarrassed.
Not all officers are bad. Please don’t let that be the take away. But police brutality is VERY FUCKING REAL.
Watch this. If this doesn’t move you, if this doesn’t make you cry out in agony and want to change the world, I don’t know what will.
sorry to have you go over this again. But what does autochorissexualism mean?
The following definition can be found in our lexicon:
Autochorissexualism: A disconnection between oneself and a sexual target/object of arousal; may involve sexual fantasies, or arousal in response to erotica or pornography, but lacking any desire to be a participant in the sexual activities therein. Commonly found in asexual people; an analogous feeling may occur in aromantic people for romantic fantasies. Coined by Anthony Bogaert. (via anagnori)
I hope this helps!
A very good way of going about explaining this issue. It’s good to see something positive come from Tumblr.
HOLY SHIT. THIS. THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO TELL PEOPLE. SHUT YOUR MOUTH ABOUT MEN VS WOMEN. @_@
this is literally so important
This is the best example and illustration I have yet to find. If more people realized that this is what equality is pushing for then we would be better off.
The more we depend on women to prevent rape, the easier it is to blame them when it happens to them. Here’s a look at the well-documented ways we can actually stop rape. Maybe it’s time we invest a little more time and resources into implementing them before we send gallons of nail polish to colleges across the country.
