This is what it should mean to be a police officer. Everyone deserves to feel safe and protected, no matter their skin tone or cultural background.  If the officers currently serving aren’t like this, then something needs to be done now to make that change.

After being shot by police officers in Pittsburgh, Pa Leon is now paralyzed and wheelchair bound. He was stopped and wrongly identified as someone he was not. When he fought for his right to not exit his car an officer jumped into his car and shot him multiple times.

Leon could have died. If you are in the Pittsburgh area stop by for this rally on Friday. He stands as a living Mike Brown, Trayvon Martin and many more.

  • Dad:You don't know what happened, you weren't there. You cant tell me anything.
  • Me:I was watching live streams, I was contantly seeking out new information. I was keeping up to date and looking at mutliple sources for information. You got all your information from Fox News.
  • Dad:You're wrong. You are so wrong.
VERY FUCKING IMPORTANT.

As an atheist, latino, and pansexual, i have been looked down on by society a lot of my life. But i still know that these fucking supreme court people and kkk and white supremacists are horrible excuses for people. so let me ask you this. How does society consider me worse than a straight white man who can look at another human being they don’t know and think to themselves, “I should kill them.”?

ANTONIO MARTIN WAS NEVER GIVEN MEDICAL ATTENTION.
NOW, I WANT PEOPLE TO WATCH THIS VIDEO.
It is of US Marines firing on a bus of Taliban fighters. Before they started recording, the Marines had been taking fire from a place they couldn’t see when this bus sped up behind them. The bus-guys had guns and plenty of ammo (you can hear the rounds exploding as the bus burns) and drove up on the unit with the clear intent to kill them. The Marines acted accordingly and lit them tf up. They were justified. But that’s not what’s up for debate.
US MARINES, THE MOST LETHAL BRANCH OF FIGHTERS THE US HAS TO OFFER, GAVE TERRORISTS MEDICAL ATTENTION AFTER SHOOTING THEM THE FUCK UP.
AND EVEN DROVE THEM TO GET FURTHER TREATMENT.
SO WHY DO TERRORISTS, PEOPLE THAT KILL AMERICANS, REGARDLESS OF RACE, GET BETTER MEDICAL ATTENTION AFTER-THE-FACT THAN AN 18 YEAR OLD BLACK KID ON OUR OWN SOIL? FOR INTEL ON WHO’S SHOOTING THEM? SURE. BUT FOR A BLACK KID TO NOT BE ALLOWED TO LIVE? WHY?
ASK YOURSELF THAT.

Conversation with my girlfriend about all the shit going on, thought I'd share because this part seems really powerful.

My girlfriend (black): I’m just scared. Every time I see a police car I want to turn away or tighten my seat belt.

Me (white): I can’t even say I know how that feels, and I think that’s what upsets me the most.

while watching the news someone in my family said “I hope these protests in new york don’t mess with the thanksgiving day parade”

oh I hope they do. From the bottom of my heart, I sincerely hope they do mess with the thanksgiving day parade. If you are prioritizing a parade over human rights, you are part of the problem.
