Here’s our new video for I Want Out. hope ya like it
My boys are back!
I’m so excited to be seeing them in Boston in October.
Just in case you thought this was anywhere near over:
St. Louis, MO
Since the police report was bullshit, this is footage of what actually happened in the Kajieme Powell shooting YESTERDAY (8/19). Yes, they got another one of our boys. They handcuffed him AFTER shooting him NINE TIMES for stealing donuts and soda. Apparently, “he had a knife”, but they could have easily defended themselves with a taser.
This happened about three miles from where Mike Brown was killed.
White cops are killing all of these brown bodies without hesitation over petty crimes, but this isn’t a race issue? k
AS A WARNING TO ANYONE WHO HASN’T SEEN IT: SOMEONE DIES IN THIS VIDEO. SOMEONE IS SHOT TO DEATH. KNOW BEFORE CLICKING PLAY.
This man was obviously upset. No one is denying he was being belligerent. I don’t care what you think, though, no one deserves to be shot over two drinks and a box of donuts or yelling at the police. NON-LETHAL FORCE COULD HAVE BEEN UTILIZED. There was so much time. So much distance. Negotiating could have been attempted, even. What do they do instead? They make a bullet filled body out of him, then handcuff him. Kill ‘em and cuff ‘em over shouting and shop lifting. Fucking. Police. Brutality.
His knife wasn’t out and his hands were at his side, but the cops are claiming he was within 3 or 4 feet with his knife raised to stab. If this gentleman had been WHITE, cops would have wrestled him down and those cuffs would have been slapped on LIVE wrists. White men with guns have been non-lethally subdued and arrested after lethally shooting multiple people. Let that sink in.
holy fucking shit
FYI, the shooting beings around 1:35, its pretty bad
HUGE trigger warning. I can’t believe this. I watched it twice just to be sure. the camera is a little too far away to tell if he did in fact have a knife drawn, but there is NO question how far away he was from the officers. this man wasn’t within five feet of them when he was shot. there was SO MUCH opportunity to take him down with a stun gun.
i’d like to see what bullshit stories they can come up with this time. they gonna claim he beat an officer too? fucking monsters.
A young man holding a toy rifle in a Walmart was shot and killed on Tuesday by police in the Dayton suburb of Beavercreek, Ohio, according to Raw Story. John Crawford, 22, was carrying a toy gun he picked up in the store, alarming two other shoppers.
LeeCee Johnson, the mother of Crawford’s children, told the Dayton Daily News she was on the phone with him while he was browsing in the store. “We was just talking,” she told the Ohio newspaper. “He said he was at the video games playing videos and he went over there by the toy section where the toy guns were. And the next thing I know, he said ‘It’s not real,’ and the police start shooting and they said ‘Get on the ground,’ but he was already on the ground because they had shot him. And I could hear him just crying and screaming. I feel like they shot him down like he was not even human.”
CBS reports that two other Walmart customers, April and Ronald Ritchie, saw Crawford walking around the store with what appeared to be a gun and called the police. The police station reports that officers asked Crawford to put down the weapon, and opened fire when he did not comply. He later died of his gun shot wounds at a nearby hospital, where his death was ruled a homicide by the Montgomery County coroner’s office. A request for comment by msnbc to the Beavercreek police department was not immediately returned.
The Ohio Attorney General’s office has said that the gun Crawford was carrying was an MK-177 BB/Pellet rifle, also known as a “variable pump air rifle.” Family members could not be reached for comment by msnbc.
Tasha Thomas, who identified herself as Crawford’s girlfriend, told the Dayton Daily News that she drove Crawford to the Walmart and was also in the store, but was in a different aisle from Crawford when the shooting happened. He was not armed when he entered the store, she said. “He did not have any type of gun on him. It’s not fair.”
A relative told the paper the family had contacted the NAACP and the National Action Network, a civil rights group led by MSNBC’s Rev. Al Sharpton.

"Curing AIDS? Shit, that’s like Cadillac making a car that lasts for 50 years. And you know they can do it, but they ain’t going to do nothing that fucking dumb. Shit, they got metal on the Space Shuttle that can go around the Moon and withstand temperatures of up to 20,000 degrees, you mean to tell me you don’t think they can make an El Dorado with a fuckin’ bumper that don’t fall off?"

The girlfriend experience

Is it me, or do Biffy Clyro just look Scottish?
This tiger cub wants to play with a little boy in a tiger costume!
Actually, that tiger does look playful. I might be completely wrong, but the pawing at the glass and the skipping don’t spell “I’m a predator and want to eat you” to me.
