A little levity for you.

really sick of seeing so much hate directed towards the police on here. look, we get it, you prefer sting’s solo work, i like it too alright? that doesnt mean ‘every little thing she does is magic’ and ‘can’t stand losing you’ arent awesome jams. ‘roxanne’ and ‘don’t stand so close to me’ are classic, don’t even get me started on ‘spirits in the material world’. just stop ok?

Fox News is now comparing the Michael Brown funeral to Margaret Thatcher’s funeral. The subtext is that Margaret Thatcher was important (as a conservative white woman in a position of power) and Michael Brown was not important (as a black man not in a position of power), so how dare the Obama administration send people to his funeral but not to that of the Iron Lady.
I guess it’s a slow news day and Fox News wanted to be assholes?

Fox values whiteness over blackness to the extent that they’ll ignore the fact that Thatcher personally covered up child sexual abuse by a politician close to her.

I hold Margaret Thatcher personally responsible for whatever the fuck Morrissey is today so fuck her.

HAHAHAHAHAHA YES.

Why do you assume they are comparing it saying it is a bad thing, and not just pointing out how much Obama cares about this issue (RE: more than he cares about foreign relations)?

Because they’re casting it in terms of this being a criticism of his priorities. Just read the article yourself: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/08/25/more-white-house-officials-at-michael-browns-funeral-than-thatchers/
This is all part of the Fox News cycle. For a refresher on how the Fox news and opinion pieces work together, watch this clip from The Daily Show.

Sketchbook comic about Kajieme Powell’s death at the hands of police on August 19th.

The video that the bystander recorded and the police released, apparently to exonerate themselves, is very disturbing. The police go to their guns too easily too often. There is less than half a minute between the time they pull up and the moment where this man is shot to death. Again, they must have had some knowledge of his potentially disturbed mental state - the reason the police were called seems to be because the man was acting strange. Other police arrive on the scene within a minute.

For more thoughts on this incident I thought this link was good.
