STOP Blaming Victims for Police Brutality | Decoded | MTV News

Despite the growing list of unarmed black people killed by police, a great deal of the discussion in media centers on past history of the victim or justification for police brutality. Why?

One Map Shows How Many People Police Have Killed in Each State So Far This Year

In 47 out of 50 states, American police officers have killed at least one person so far this year. In some, the number of officer-involved homicides dwarfs numbers from entire countries.The map below, based on statistics the research collaborative Mapping Police Violence provided to Mic, shows all 605 deaths from police violence in the United States from Jan. 1 through July 10. As is evident, there’s a clear correlation between population size and the number of slayings, but certain states still stand out with particularly large numbers.

It’s also pretty racist: The weight of all these killings falls disproportionately on the poor and especially racial and ethnic minorities, who experience significantly higher arrest rates.

A 2014 USA Today analysis using FBI statistics found white officers kill black suspects at the rate of about two a week — although the actual total is likely much higher. The New York Police Department, for example, shoots black and Hispanic suspects at many times the rate they do white ones.

Socioeconomic disparities no doubt account for part of this, but plain old institutional racism likely plays a huge role in these deaths.

Please reblog

My girl just FaceTimed me while on the road and that group of thugs that are riding around Georgia in several trucks sporting Confederate flags are in Valdosta Ga today (8/1/15). They are deep and they are armed. Please be safe brethren, because I’m sure the cops there won’t do shit.

MILWAUKEE—Frequently choking back tears, African-American computer technician Michael Shaw bid an emotional goodbye to his wife and 6-year-old son before making his morning commute Thursday, sources confirmed. “I don’t know when or if I’ll see you guys next, so I just want you to know how much I love you,” Shaw said, his voice breaking as he prepared to embark on the 25-minute trip, including a stop at a Dunkin’ Donuts drive-thru, from which he might not return. “Kevin, you take care of Mommy. Whatever might happen before I get to the office, you have to be strong, okay?” According to sources, Shaw then grabbed his briefcase and his car keys and took one last look over his shoulder before opening the front door and walking down the lawn to the driveway.

Do You Know Why I’m Pulling You Over, Being Wildly Aggressive, And Charging You With Assault Today, Sir?
The Onion - America's Finest News Source

Good afternoon, sir. Go ahead and roll your window all the way down for me. My name is Officer Daniel McEwen from the Greene County Police Department. Now, do you know why I’m pulling you over today, being overly aggressive, and charging you with a felony count of assaulting a police officer?

I’m going to need to see your driver’s license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance. Thank you, sir. Now, just sit tight in your car while I take a look here and grow increasingly hostile. I’m just going to start addressing you in an unmistakably threatening tone that is specifically meant to intimidate and provoke, and then drastically escalate the situation so that it quickly gets out of hand.

Are you aware of the speed limit on this road, sir? It’s 35. I had you clocked at 52 miles per hour, which is why I had to stop you and exhibit a nakedly confrontational, antagonistic, and condescending attitude, practically daring you to challenge my authority in any way whatsoever. You can’t be driving that fast around here, so I’m going to have to write you a ticket and then violently place you under arrest the moment you do or say anything that isn’t in complete and utter compliance—or which could even be remotely construed as noncompliant—with every single instruction I give to you.

Do you understand all that, sir?

If you have any questions about this ticket, I’d be happy to wildly overreact to anything you say that shows the slightest hint of resentment, annoyance, or resistance. Really, while you have me here, I can easily interpret any snide remark or frustrated comment as a potential threat to my safety—even so much as an angry look—and respond in a disproportionately combative way by erupting in unwarranted rage, taking out either my 50,000-volt Taser or my handgun, and pointing it directly at you through the driver’s side window.

Now, I have to head back to my patrol car real quick, so please bear with me here for a few minutes. Then you can be on your way to jail in no time as soon as I come back and forcibly remove you from your vehicle, slam you into the asphalt, cuff you, and jam my knee into your back as I radio in that I need backup right away because you’re resisting arrest—all the while both outright ignoring your vocalized concerns for your safety and directing my own petty, barbed insults at you. Just so we’re on the same page here, you’ll be getting three points on your license for speeding and also assault charges that carry a minimum sentence of one year in prison, but you’ll be assumed guilty of both while I automatically receive the benefit of the doubt despite any and all evidence to the contrary.

You know what, why don’t you step out of the car, sir? And put that goddamn cell phone away.

Ok folks, real talk. This video is awesome. Bill Nye says “Trippy as f*ck.” It’s amazing.

But now I can’t stop thinking about paint drying.

I mean, if you could apply the paint nigh (Nye?) simultaneously… would the top dry first or the bottom? Discounting areas where it was thinner… maybe the bottom? I mean, moisture is evaporating there, be it water or turpentine or oil or whatnot. The evaporated molecules are going to rise if they’re lighter than air… so you’re gonna get some re-absorption and some air/moisture saturation that’s going to slow it in the upper areas, right? 

It’s 3 am, I’m thinking about paint drying.

BIIIIILLL NYYYEEEEEEE!

Major turn ons, as according to the public school system

Want a guy to notice you?  Show him your fucking shoulder, he’ll be thinking about it all day long.

Trying to be flirt?  Wear shorts above the mid thigh, it will send out a clear message that you want to bang.

For when your feeling REALLY bold, try flashing a bra strap, he won’t be able to think clearly after seeing proof that you are in fact a girl, and wear a bra as a basic, culturally essential piece of clothing.  

Make sure to not do anything TOO risky though, like wear a crop top, it will send out a bit of a “please notice and harass me” vibe.

i swear. in like 5 seconds of clips it already shows Taichi’s different smiles in so many different ways I swear to go I can’t handle it

Like his happy go lucky smile where He’s not thinking about much he’s just refreshed and happy in the moment

His determined ‘don’t worry guys i got this. we’ll get to victory together lets DO IT’ smile of confidence! 

And then THE SWEETEST little smile of when he’s probably looking at someone else and he’s just noticing them but that in of itself makes me smile and it’s totally unguarded but ITS STILL THERE!

Like Taichi is still as expressive as ever and it doesn’t take a lot for him to show many ranges on what he’s thinking. he’s still the type to have his emotions on the outside and that’s fantastic and that’s great and that makes me happy. 

AND I JUST REALIZED HE’S PROBABLY IN A SOCCER UNIFORM 

DAMN IT. TAICHI IS BEYOND PERFECT I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THIS MOVIE
