it’s my first day off in over a week and my sass levels are off the charts
Now with less typos! Details still en route…
Fingers crossed for my general region!
Lawmakers in St Louis, Missouri raised serious concerns about escalating tensions between police and African American residents at least a year before the shooting death of Michael Brown in the small suburb of Ferguson.
“Tensions have been high because of what the citizens here see as police abuse.” says Michael Voss, the co-founder of Arch City Defenders, a non-profit legal service in St Louis. “I know that our clients feel racially profiled and that their poverty is exploited.”
The Arch City Defenders published a white paper last year detailing issues with racial profiling there. The paper argues it’s a systemic problem.
One of the most obvious data points highlighting the disparity is the amount of traffic stops police make on black people.
Let’s take a look at Ferguson. There are more warrants issued in Ferguson than there are people. Voss says a good majority of these warrants are a result of traffic stops. Black people make up two-thirds of the total driving population, but account for 86 percent of all traffic stops there.
Sorry that I’m ruining the surprise nipsndoobies but I’m way too stoked with how this came out. Happy late graduation, you fancy bitch!
Happy birthday, Big Bertha! #200000miles #toyota #4runner
Zeus (fawn) and Neveah (brindle) are two senior English mastiffs in need of a home! They were surrendered to Big Bones Canine Rescue in Windsor, Colorado after their owner passed away two years ago and have been with the rescue ever since. They are both in good health despite their age (Zeus is 8 and Neveah is 6), but we have been unable to find a home that will take two senior mastiffs. If you or someone you know would want to provide these two sweet doggies with a forever home or permanent foster, please contact Big Bones Canine Rescue.
Note: Neveah is dog-aggressive, so we are looking to place them in a home with no other dogs. They are also a bonded pair, and must be placed together.
If I didn’t already have a dog-aggressive pup I would be all over this! Colorado people, go adopt these guys!
