5 Things You Should Know About The Ferguson Grand Jury

1. The Grand Jury that is “investigating” Darren Wilson is comprised of nine White people and three Black people (no word yet on how many of those jurors are from Ferguson Missouri, the town where Mike Brown was executed, and who’s residents are mostly Black)

2. The prosecutor, Bob McCulloch, the son of a slain police officer, has deep ties to the police community, has favored law enforcement in criminal cases, and has literally never prosecuted a police officer for anything, ever

3. Bob McCulloch’s father was reportedly killed by a Black man and McColloch has stated in the past that growing up, he always wanted to become a police officer. Also, Bob McCulloch has a reputation for vigorously prosecuting Black people for any manner of offenses, from minor drug possession to capital offenses 

4. Missouri’s Governor, Jay Nixon, has the authority to replace McCulloch with a special prosecutor, but has not done so

5. For Darren Wilson to be criminally charged, at least nine people on the Grand Jury must vote to indict Wilson

As always, there are factors which should always be remembered in this case: officer Darrin Wilson had absolutely no idea about the alleged theft of cigars when he shot Mike Brown 6 times.The Ferguson PD has a history of racially profiling and harassing innocent Black people, and their officers have a slave master mentality. And finally, Mike Brown, who was UNARMED, was racially profiled for walking-while-Black, for jay walking, which is not a capital offense

if anybody asks me why i hate men, i’m just gonna redirect them to this post.

it’s pretty fucking obvious that men only want to invest in breast cancer research to further degrade, objectify, and jerk off to body parts they already feel 100% entitled to. that’s what is at stake for them. 

what about the women whose “tatas” weren’t saved? how must they feel being surrounded by awareness ads that focus more on keeping women’s sexy-sexy-titties-to-continue-titillating-the-males than saving real life human beings and helping survivors? 

If anyone’s wondering, those posts came from here. It’s a forum for breast cancer support. Give it a read, and you’ll see how many women are outright abandoned by their husbands, sometimes after being married for decades, because their “tatas” couldn’t be saved.
