Abby! 19. I play League and other games. Sometimes I read books. Less often, I write.

Besides League, I love literature, Beyonce, and cats-- mostly cats. This is mostly a social justice blog concerned with feminism/womanism, racism, trans rights, and intersectionality. If I'm doing something wrong tell me!

This is a story that isn’t getting the traction in the press that it should. I posted the case about Howard Morgan not long ago here.
Morgan was a veteran police officer in Chicago. He is black. He was shot 28 times by 4 white officers. 21 of those shots were administered to the back of his body. Morgan never fired a weapon, and a witness corroborated that. In fact, one of the officers took Morgan’s weapon away from him. Morgan was acquitted of aggravated discharge of a weapon in 2007. 
Some key facts via this online petition

Howard Morgan’s van was crushed and destroyed without notice or cause before any forensic investigation could be done. The State only produced 3 of the 28 bullets shot into and taken from Howard Morgan’s body, whereby the rest of the 25 bullets could have shown whether or not the police officers who shot Mr. Morgan shot him with his own gun after taking it from him. Howard Morgan was never tested for gun residue to confirm if he even fired a weapon on the morning in question. The State never produced the actual bullet proof vest worn by one of the officers who claimed to have allegedly taken a shot directly into the vest on the morning in question. The State only produced a replica.

Despite all this, and the fact that Morgan was earlier acquitted of firing his own weapon, Morgan was found guilty of attempted murder of the 4 white officers who shot him 28 times, with 21 of those shots having entry points on the back of his body. How does one not fire a weapon, get shot 28 times by four officers, and then be found guilty of attempted murder? It doesn’t make sense.
Morgan is set to be sentenced in April. More info here.

Since people insist on contacting to tell me “not all cops”, I’ll be reblogging old posts of the most egregious cases of police brutality. This isn’t about individual “nice” cops. This is about a systemic problem. Good cops are forced to tow the line or they will get dealt with. No one is denying that cops have a tough job. Who said they didn’t? Isn’t that what they signed up for? Don’t jump in the lion’s den and then complain about lions.
The case above is about a Black Chicago cop named Howard Morgan. Why his case didn’t gain national attention beats me. He was shot 28 times by fellow officers, and 21 of those shots came from behind. He survived somehow. One officer took his weapon away from him. Black cops are not safe either.

And note this again from atane’s original post:

The worker who becomes a policeman in the service of the capitalist state, is a bourgeois cop, not a worker.

THIS MAN HAS ALS, AND HIS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH. THEN IT’LL MAKE YOU CRY

The video begins humorously as Anthony Carbajal, a photographer, dresses up in a neon bikini top and soaps up a car before being doused with ice water. 

So watch the full video here and laugh out loud at the first half and then get ready to tear up in the second half.

Recently, I’ve found out I need life-saving surgery done to my mouth, and it’s rather costly.

I’m trying to raise $10,000, the cost of what needs to be done, as soon as possible.

here is the link to the gofundme that I’ve started to try to help. It includes more information about what I need. If you don’t feel comforatble donating, keep an eye out. I’ll be updating this post with my redbubble account, so you’ll be able to buy something and know that you’re helping to save my life. If you can’t donate, or don’t wish to buy anything, can I ask that you spread the word? Thank you for your time.

Guys, please, PLEASE take a moment to read and consider helping my dear dear friend! Every cent counts and it is so, SO appreciated! This is a time-constrained matter so please do not hesitate if you have some spare change! His life is at stake here!

Hey everyone! Go check this out please!
This fellow is in dire need of some help- if you can throw some change his way please!
Seriously. Go. This is super important.
