Rudy Giuliani’s daughter arrested for shoplifting and is labelled ‘rebellious;’
Winona Ryder caught on camera shoplifting and found not-guilty.
Mike Brown ‘allegedly’ steals $.50 swisher and is executed for ‘robbery.’
This post doesn’t even make sense. Mike Brown wasn’t executed for “robbery”. He was executed for nothing. The police chief in Ferguson has admitted that at the time he was killed the officer was not stopping him in connection with his alleged “robbery”. Don’t tell me even people who want justice for Mike Brown’s killer have bought the bullshit line about his murder being related to a “robbery”. Please don’t tell me that.
But even if his alleged “robbery” had anything to do with his death, this post would still be a train wreck. What is the implication of it? That rich and powerful people can more easily get away with crimes? Is this news? Are you all that naive?
And don’t say “they’re white and he’s black.” (I’ve seen this post on here before pointing that out as the difference) Because if you seriously think the only different between the daughter of the governor of new york state, an (at the time) wealthy and famous movie star, and Michael Brown is race than I don’t think you’re looking hard enough. There’s literally too many differences to count. Wealth. Status. Connections. Power. Celebrity. The location of the incident, the jurisdiction into which the “crime” was prosecuted (hint: the people involved were separated by many many miles and years) These are only some of the obvious differences besides sex and race which are at play here.
The american criminal justice system is absolutely horrible, unjust, and rotten to the core. But this post is a train wreck in the classic tumblr model of a picture with a caption that serves no purpose but to cue rehearsed indignation and phony outrage based on a few short bullet points with no further explanation.
And damnit , mike brown wasn’t murdered.
Mike brown wasn’t executed at all. He was shot after beating a police officer to the point of breaking his orbital bone and charging towards him again after being told to stop. The robbery actually has little impact on the shooting.
Stop with the false narratives and getting played for idiots by race baiters who want nothing but power and money off of your ignorance.
What difference does it make?

my friend made an interesting point about skyrim
the only beverages in skyrim are alcoholic
maybe there is no magic, or dragons, or anything
maybe everyone is just drunk off their ass
