Stay mindful of the time stamps when these Twitter images are passed around in the following dayz.

So much for the heroic-community minded “good cops” who came into Ferguson to deescalate the violence. That was a trick. Smoke and mirrors. An attempt to pacify the people of Ferguson who are very very righteously furious.
Speaking of smoke and mirrors: Putting a child on trial for his own death is a very cruel trick. An attempt at distraction. Deciding if an unarmed person is respectable enough to not be slaughtered by a cop is useless. No one deserves that, regardless of how “respectable” they are. It’s an attempt to justify the actions of a disgusting worthless cop who killed a kid in cold blood.
More tricks up the media’s sleeve: Labeling a community as a bunch of hooligans who loot stores and riot for fun detracts from the situation at hand. It paints that community in a false light that invalidates their pain, their experiences, and even their mere existence. It’s an attempt at dehumanization, which would be the only way to justify the police crackdown on these communities. It’s all horseshit. Don’t let yourself be tricked.
"Though looting, vandalism and clashes with police have occurred during previous rallies, many protesters assert that out-of-town activists — not Ferguson residents — are to blame."
Also literally fuck any and all curfews.

This band played at the Nu Youth show last night. It was not only my first time seeing them but the first time I had ever heard of them.  I didn’t know what to expect. But I didn’t expect to be blown away
They play some wildass music that I couldn’t possibly describe. I couldn’t even begin to guess what their influences are. But it’s energetic as fux and completely unique. To my ears at least.

Listen to them here:
