If I’m shopping at Target and I see this, I’m calling the cops.  
Seriously.  I don’t care about your fucking rights, I just want to buy some dad jeans and maybe a tub of frosted animal crackers without having to worry about your casually slung assault rifle going off and the bullet ricocheting off the price checker and right into my ass.  Thanks but no thanks.  

This can not be real

but think about it if it was armed black people or hispanic people. They would be considered “thugs” and “criminals”. If it was a group of people from the middle east they would be terrorists, But because it’s like 800 different shades of mayo they’re using their 2nd amendment rights…smdh. 

I don’t think it would be in the best interest of any poc, ESPECIALLY black people, to do what this woman in the photo is doing. We would be killed so quick. The police already hate us to the point where they have killed and continue to either beat, kill, torture, and discriminate against us. The 2nd Amendment only applies to white people as far as I’m concerned.

Maybe poc should start carrying around assault rifles jus so congress would be motivated to legislate some fucking gun control. When the panthers starting carrying around guns in the sixties, the nra became pro regulation real quick.

You guys know how racist you all sound, right? “Waaaah we can’t ban guns but people would support us if it were black or hispanic people open carrying!”
"yeah lets make a campaign to encourage blacks and hispanics to carry weapons so that we can finally ban them! everyone is afraid of a black person with a gun” — you.

Furthermore the fact that poc’s would be put in jail for doing this is not a reason for police to have guns and for citizens not to.

People are idiots. police kills, beat, and imprison POCs at incredible rates > let’s ONLY allow police have guns > I’m a fucking idiot

It’s all his PR. He wants to come off as the cool young president to cover up his sociopathic war criminal reality.

For those that forgot a batch of Wikileaks material showed that the Obama Administration worked hard behind the scenes not only to prevent any investigation of torture in the United States but shutdown efforts abroad to enforce the Geneva Conventions and the Convention Against Torture. This includes threatening the Spanish that, if they did not derail a judicial investigation, it would have serious consequences in bilateral relations.

For two years, President Obama has worked to block the investigation of torture under the Bush Administration — even as both Dick Cheney and George Bush publicly admit to ordering waterboarding of suspects.

Just as many conservatives abandoned their principles in following George Bush blindly, many liberals have chosen to ignore Obama’s concerted efforts to protect individuals accused of war crimes. Under our treaty obligations, the United States has the primary responsibility to prosecute torture by U.S. citizens. That responsibility rests with the Executive Branch – the prosecuting authority of the United States. What is particularly disgraceful is that Obama would refuse to fulfill this responsibility under our treaties and international law and then demand the same hypocrisy from our allies.

Massachusetts Cops Handcuff Man, Force him to sit in Sweltering Cop Car for Hour, for Not Showing Respect

A Massachusetts state police officer ordered a man out of his car over a tinted window violation, aggressively handcuffing him when the man would not put his camera phone down, forcing him to remain seated and handcuffed in the back seat of a cruiser with the windows up and the air-conditioner off for an hour.

All because the cop wanted to teach him a lesson for “questioning my authority.”

The incident took place this week in Revere,  just outside of Boston, which explains the mob-like tactics of police. That’s just how it’s done up there.

Destefano posted two videos on Youtube, explaining in the comments that he was released with only a citation for illegal tints after he was forced to sit in a sweltering cop car for an hour.

It all started when Anthony Destefano was pulled over and ordered to provide his license and registration with him insisting on knowing why he had been stopped before handing over his information.

They went back and forth a bit before Destefano provided these items and the cop informed that he had been pulled over for tinted windows.

The cop walked back to his car with his information before walking back a few minutes and ordering him out of the car while opening his car door – as if he had just discovered a warrant for Destefano’s arrest.

But there was no warrant. There was no probable cause. And there was no reasonable suspicion that he had done anything more but buy a car with illegal tints.

It was all because, as he can be heard saying in the video, “you treated me with zero respect.”

But respect must be earned.

Honorary Tumblr Feminist Andrea Mears has been charged with beating the living shit out of a teenage boy because he went to the beach to fly his Camera Drone. First she tried to have him arrested using false accusations (She told the Police He Assaulted HER). Fortunately he had everything recorded. When that didn’t work she straight up assaulted him.

"That’s what you get you little pervert" she said as she repeated struck him, knocking him to the ground.

Later it was revealed..

Haughwout released video from the drone taken just prior to the attack. It shows aerial footage of Hammonasset beach and the surrounding woods — public areas. No one person appears to be targeted for surveillance.

He wasn’t there taking pictures of anyone… he was using what amounted to a toy to record the scenic coastline. You can watch his “creep shots” here.

However, this Honorary Tumblr Feminist clearly believed he was taking creep shots and proceeded to assault him and felt justified in doing so.

You can help fund his crowd source campaign to sue the ever living shit out of her by clicking here.
