HI, my name is Anne.
I like a lot of stuff. I don't do a lot of stuff.
I like talking to strangers.

1:23 AM: We literally laid in someone’s backyard for what seemed like an eternity while tanks rolled down the streets #Ferguson
1:26 AM: I’m live tweeting because there’s a media blackout. #Ferguson
1:33 AM: I’m so shaken. They’re literally just rolling around throwing tear gas into neighborhoods-not aggressive crowds. #Ferguson
1:34 AM: I was pouring milk over one guys eyes when they came back around and threw another at us. #Ferguson
1:51 AM: Let me repeat, THEY ARE GASSING NEIGHBORHOODS not crowds of protestors.There was only a few of us walking. there is no curfew, so why?]
For the “Why would a child be at a rally? where are the parents?!” crowd: THEY ARE GASSING NEIGHBORHOODS, INDISCRIMINATELY. Reports of teargas being thrown into people’s BACKYARDS have been filed. People are being ARRESTED FOR TRYING TO LEAVE AN AREA AFTER TEAR GAS IS DEPLOYED.
Get the fuck over yourself.
We’re not people really. Our concerns are not America’s concerns. We are just here for entertainment. We’re a convenient treasure trove of limitless creativity to be pillaged, watered down, and re-purposed for White audiences and the people getting rich from bastardized stereotypes and simplified caricatures of everything we bring to the table have nothing to say when shit gets really real.
Mike Brown’s killer Darren Wilson “explaining” “what really happened” - he just deactivated his facebook so I can no longer post what he’s up to, but just wanted to show everyone the absolute bullshit lies being told.
Let’s keep in mind this article from the Wall Street Journal:Local police released new details in sometimes chaotic fashion Friday about the shooting death of an unarmed African-American teenager, which sowed more mistrust in a community already lacking faith in law-enforcement efforts. Early Friday, Ferguson police identified Darren Wilson as the officer who shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown in an incident that has sparked a week of unrest in this St. Louis suburb as well as protests in cities across the country.Chief Thomas Jackson also released documents and surveillance video, alleging that Mr. Brown was tied to a robbery at a convenience store shortly before he crossed paths with police. Hours later, Mr. Jackson held another news conference in which he said Mr. Wilson, who is white, wasn’t aware of the robbery when he stopped Mr. Brown.
- Lack of the alleged robbery being called in on the 911 tapes…
- Time stamp on video of alleged robbery doesn’t match …hmmm…okay
- Police report is time stamped BEFORE the alleged Mike Brown on that tape even left the store
- Wilson’s own previous admittance that he didn’t know about the robbery at the time of the murder
- MULTIPLE eyewitness accounts detailing the events of the murder…all of which said that Micheal Brown was RUNNING AWAY from Wilson until he was shot in the back, turned around, dropped to his knees with his hands raised, and yelled something to the effect of “Don’t shoot! I don’t have a gun!” before he was shot in the head and multiple times after that…while on his knees…with his hands in the air….
- Fuck outta here, you spineless bitch
Didn’t I tell y’all they’re going to try and say he was on drugs or some shit to make him have “superhuman strength” and belligerent?! Didn’t I say that shit?!
^^^ Them claiming he was under the influence of drugs is a given. It’s the only way they could even try to justify the murder.
"Michael taunts and yells ‘What are you gonna do about it’ stuff like that”. What the fuck is “stuff like that”? You mean to tell me this boy was running full speed toward a cop with a gun pointed directly at him?? How long did it take this cracker to concoct this bullshit ass story?? It could have at least made a little more sense.
I’m not trusting any toxicology or autopsy report they release at this point. Ain’t no telling what they did to his body once they opted to transport it in an unmarked SUV versus an ambulance.
7 days….it took him 7 days to concoct that bullshit ass story, twin. And let’s not forget that aside from the fact that his ass was in a fucking vehicle and should have immediately radioed for help as soon as that gun went off, officers have other items on them to include pepper spray, batons, tasers, etc….you go straight for the gun, though? On an unarmed child? You go…straight…for…the…gun…
And yeah, I called all that. The M.E. or medic is supposed to transport the body. NOT the PD, especially when it’s a cop shooting. On everything he’d better get tried and convicted of murder….
On top of all that, the second autopsy report the family requested said that besides the gunshots that killed him, he’d been perfectly healthy.
Making the drugs excuse prove to be even more full of shit than before.
Community leaders are taking it upon themselves to provide meals for kids.
The school district has contacted outside counseling groups to help students upon their return.
TUESDAY 8/19: Ferguson PD presented a table full of fabricated evidence at this morning’s press conference - allegedly seized from protestors and stopped cars. The Colt 45 Molotov with a white bandana was the crowning glory, turns out you can’t even buy glass 40’s in Missouri. Stay classy, FPD
I seriously think white supremacist are coming in the area to frame the protesters, but it could just be the cops
Nah I think that’s exactly what’s going on.
there have been lots of tweets from Ferguson locals about white anarchists coming in from other states for a chance to fight police/incite violence. Honestly, considering the white anarchist community I believe it.
what really fucks with me is how willing people are to throw mike brown under the bus for something he ‘might’ have done. he ‘might’ have stolen something so he definitely deserved to get shot while he was surrendering? with his hands up? like where is your humanity
and when i say people i definitely mean white people because who else is out here saying he deserved it
CNN giving more airtime to the white reporter from Albuquerque than any of the black citizens
i literally hate that guy he’s full of shit
like OK sorry I have to reblog my own reblog but he runs a FB page called “Inhabitants of Burque” and he started posting shit like “man I’m gonna go to Ferguson” and then when he gets there (due to a donation from one of his FB followers) he makes literally NO effort to get to understand the community at all, takes weird selfies with Jesse Jackson, runs around in a gas mask and posts statuses like “I could get shot tonight… It’s been nice knowing you” and “This is the life I love this kind of stuff” and running around with Anderson Cooper and talking about how he’s gonna get a job with… I forget (in my seething hatred) but seriously he got a job offer out of this sitution that he capitalized on with no desire for anything except to go to a volatile place and say “fuck the cops” in conclusion: scum
I am posting this to spread awareness to folks down here on the ground. A white anarchist punched me in the face as I was running from gun shots. Before he hit me he told me to ” sit the fuck down” . The KKK is out here. There are white man throwing bombs and giving them to youth . Spread the word because its about to be night fall here in #ferguson. Please stand in solidarity with us even if just from your homes and computer screens. We are doing this for us.
Seriously, what the police are doing is not “bad”, it’s illegal.
There is a reason why people are raging mad at this situation, and it’s because it’s a blatant violation of basic human rights.
If you don’t understand that, then you are part of the problem.
Yes, I know. I was there. Some brought their own, many were not prepared at all and did drastic things because of dire needs.
i love that mcdonald’s response was like “nah nothin’ happened to our shop”
"there was no looting"
