OMG! The rioting after the #BreloVerdict has begun…oh wait.

This is the #BreloVerdict protests, that other shit was from that time when LeBron James took his talents to South Beach. But you got the fucking #CSIJudge (watch for the show on CBS this fall, y’all!)

and everybody and their momma in the local #Cleveland government, including Cleveland Mayor

“Prospector” Frank Jackson, talking that bullshit about staying calm and the low tolerance for “rioters”  

No….

THIS was the aftermath of a police sanctioned “riot”, GTFO!  Brelo was the last chance for SOMEBODY to be held accountable for the death of two unarmed people who’s only crime the night they died almost 3 years ago was running away from the police. The last I checked, the only place where that’s a punishable by death offense was in Judge Dredd’s Mega City

But, here we are, again, kids.  

Two more dead black Americans (Malissa Williams and Timothy Russell for those of you keeping count) 

You know it’s a fucked up situation when someone from Congress steps up to the mic and says something…on a Saturday before a Holiday, too? 

Two more lives that didn’t matter, that we are adding to the list and I hope you know Algebra, we’re getting close to using fractions and shit to keep up with the dead count and the justifications;

A young man walks to the store to get snacks
A cop wannabe is looking for “some action”
Solve The Following:  When will the wannabe come across the young man and kill him?  When will the wannabe get away with murder? 
NOTE: Please don’t forget to factor in Stand Your Ground.

And the “Those Negroes probably didn’t deserve it for this but…” justification has begun (The following from One of Belo’s attorneys, Patrick D’Angelo)

and the “get out of here with your Civil Rights, Black America” patronizing

…and the usual “yadda, yadda, yadda”.

Don’t get me started yet another case with complicated rules and laws that make it impossible to convict anyone of wrong doing in situation like these. 

I’m sure that’s the point. 

I wish that Cleveland would borrow Marilyn Mosby from Baltimore for the Tamir Rice case, I know she wouldn’t put up with this bullshit.  

It took almost 3 years for the Brelo case to go to “trial” and we’re at 6 months since Rice was shot and killed and the officer who fired the fatal shots has yet to be questioned about it.

But you stay calm, Black America. Yeah.

Now that I’m all done with my Baltimore SMK&C photos (even though I KNOW that I have a ton of outtakes that I want to post eventually!), I’m itching to make a few gifsets. This video will be up first… because the moment that caused that thumbnail to exist needs to be put in motion. :)

Whites, Blacks, Split Over Cause of Unrest

Which of the following do you think is the best way to explain the events in Baltimore and other cities between police and members of the African-American community?

North Penn. I’m walking down the sidewalk and I see gangs walking together with blue (Crips), red (Bloods) and yellow (I don’t even know) bandanas. I think to myself only in Baltimore will you see rival gangs united. More than anything I’m inspired by them. One of the Crips comes up to me and gives me a hug for no particular reason…I have a way of making friends anywhere. They pose together and I ask if they have an extra blue bandana for me..they don’t but anyways.. before I could take the shot a group of people start running away from the protest and the gangs get distracted.
