What even is this show
What fucks me up about the Darren Wilson fundraiser is that he hasn’t been charged with a crime. He doesn’t have to hire a lawyer. He’s on paid leave, so he’s not losing wages. This is not covering his expenses, because he doesn’t have any additional expenses. This is a reward. He’s getting a $250,000 reward for murdering an unarmed black kid.
HE HAD TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL. MIKE REACHED FOR HIS GUN. HIS FRIEND THAT WAS WITH HIM EVEN ADMITTED THAT HE LIED ABOUT THE COP JUST RANDOMLY SHOOTING HIM AND CONFIRMED THAT THEY ROBBED THE STORE. SELF DEFESE.
None of this is true. This is how good the Ferguson PD’s smear campaign has been. Not one sentence here is accurate. Let’s break this down:
- "HE HAD TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL." Michael Brown’s autopsy showed no sign of struggle.The picture of the CT scan that’s being passed around to show that Wilson had an orbital blowout fracture is actually from 2008 from the University of Iowa, and a right-wing pundit photoshopped out the date and hospital info.
- "MIKE REACHED FOR HIS GUN." Officer Wilson’s story is that the first shot that went off was an accidental discharge while they were fighting over the gun. However. there was no gunpowder residue on Mike Brown, meaning that he was absolutely not holding the gun when it went off and furthermore that he was not even that close. He was fired on from a distance.
- "HIS FRIEND THAT WAS WITH HIM EVEN ADMITTED THAT HE LIED ABOUT THE COP JUST RANDOMLY SHOOTING HIM AND CONFIRMED THAT THEY ROBBED THE STORE." This is actually a compound lie, which is kind of impressive. His friend, Dorian Johnson, did not say that. His lawyer said they were together in the convenience store, the police said there was a robbery, and the media put those two statements next to each other to imply a statement was made that never was. Johnson isn’t being charged with anything because the Ferguson PD “determined he committed no crime." The Ferguson PD also admitted Officer Wilson didn’t know about the scuffle at the convenience store before he stopped Brown and Johnson. You may be wondering why I say scuffle instead of robbery. That’s because there wasn’t one: the owners of the store didn’t call the police and video shows Brown paying for the cigarillos! The clerk confronted Brown about reaching across the counter instead of waiting for him to hand over the cigarillos, he put his hand on Brown, and Brown pushed him. Yes, he pushed him too hard, but the clerk apparently didn’t care enough to call the police. The police were called by another customer in the store, who apparently didn’t know what was actually happening.
- "SELF DEFESE." The autopsy shows that he was shot on the inside of his arm, meaning his hands were up, and the top of his head, meaning that, since Brown was 6’4”, either he was on his knees or the officer was 8’ tall. The officer was not 8’ tall.
The evidence clearly shows that Officer Wilson, who had no idea of the not-actually-a-robbery, executed the unarmed Mike Brown while he was on his knees with his hands in the air. Just like all of the eyewitnesses said (except for “Josie,” who turned out not to be real).
But the Ferguson PD’s already tainted public opinion. They’ve spread so many lies so effectively that no amount of evidence will bring justice. Your ignorance here is proof of just how effective it’s been.
I know Steve is really talented with his shield and is like an expert with it
but just imagine him smacking it in his face
or tripping over it
or waking up in the middle of the night and he shuffles off to the bathroom only to step on the edge of the shield and it smacks him in the shin and he curses loudly enough to wake up the other Howling Commandos who just sit up and start laughing at the way Steve is holding onto his leg and swearing
Seriously, though, super-soldier or not, watching Steve learn to use his shield must’ve been A+ comedy!
Steve throws it at some HYDRA goons but misses them by a mile and it bounces off a wall and flies out through a window, and Steve is just standing there, whoops, while Bucky rolls his eyes, takes out the enemies with his rifle, and jogs back outside to fetch the shield.
Steve hasn’t learnt the ctrl+c to crouch move yet; he holds the shield in front of his face and a HYDRA sniper shoots him in the thigh. Bucky facepalms because Steve you idiot, the shield only protects the bits of youactually behind it. Eventually, Steve masters the art of hiding his entire body behind the shield, tortoise-style, by ducking and having Bucky chuck pebbles at whatever parts of him are sticking out - of course Bucky has a wicked good aim and an even more wicked sense of humour, and Steve ends up with some rather embarrassing bruises.
The Commandos are on a stealth mission to infiltrate a secret HYDRA base, except the shield slips, falls, and does that rolling-metal-lid-dropped-on-the-ground sound like clang!!-grooiinnng-rooiinng-ooiinnnng-rnnnng-rrnng-rrnng-rrnng until Steve puts his foot on it. Everyone stops and just stares at him.
Also, my personal headcanon is that Steve once bet the shield in a hand of poker and Bucky won it. So it’s actually been Bucky’s shield since October 1944, Steve’s just borrowing it.
jurantparetoiles asked: 1-3 and 21
1: What was the last book you read?
I’m in the middle of Neal Stephenson’s The Diamond Age but I’m gonna talk about the one I finished previous to that because it’s part of my favorite series: The book was The Kingdom of Gods by N.K. Jemisin, part of the Inheritance Trilogy (not cycle, there are no dragons here).
2: Was it a good one?
yES it was my second time reading it and it was as good or better this time through.
3: What made it good?
The whole series is wonderful, a really unique take on fantasy with racially diverse protagonists (gasp) one of whom is disabled and lots of really lovely characters in a nonheteronormative, poly-friendly world. My favorite in the series is the first one (The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms (go check it out it’s gr9)) but what I like specifically about The Kingdom of Gods is that I love the protagonist Sieh and his growth over the course of the novel is really cool
21: Who is your favorite character in a book series?
-sweats- I can’t just pick one but a few are Ernest (and Roz, and Jack, and Maks…) from The Posterchildren, Tybalt from the October Daye series, Karrin Murphy from the Dresden Files, Yeine and Oree from the Inheritance trilogy…
EDITED TO ADD: I forgot the Luidaeg from the Toby Daye books holy shit I suck
EDITED AGAIN: and Seyonne and Aleksander from Carol Berg’s Rai-Kirah trilogy why do I suck at this
princettemiles asked: Every ends in 5
5: How often do you read?
Not as often as I’d like lately, but usually I’ll read at least a few pages a day, right before bed or over a meal if nothing else.
15: Do you prefer physical books or ready on a device (like a kindle)?
That varies. For reading a book the first time, I tend to prefer a kindle or ipad mostly because 1. it’s lighter/easier to carry around 2. it remembers where I am so I don’t have to remember (and I lose bookmarks constantly so those don’t really work for me orz) and 3. I don’t have to hold it open if I’m eating or something while I read. That being said, if it’s a book I love and want to own a personal copy of I prefer to have a physical copy.
25: How long does it take you to read a book?
Depends on the book, of course, and my schedule, but let me give some examples. I finished the sixth Harry Potter book in a day, but I had a six-hour ish car ride where I did nothing else. I read Perdido Street Station (by China Mieville) in a day as well. I can knock out a Dresden Files book or an urban fantasy novel in a day. Game of Thrones books take longer (four-five days at the beach) but the point is not very long.
35: Do you read while in the bath?
Man I read my kindle in the bath what’s life without a few risks amiright
45: Which author would you most want to interview?
Ohhhh that’s hard. N.K. Jemisin, maybe?
