Now Playing Tracks

I want to turn myself inside out. The black hole in my chest has grown too large and the way it pulls at my flesh to collapse is to strong for me to resist. I’m tired of fighting the craving, the voices in my head just scream so loud. I wish I knew how to quiet them. My body and my mind plot against me, tell me to destroy myself. Drink, drug, self harm, suicide. Things I used to survive on, always wanted me to return. Always wanting me to burn. I can’t outrun these demons, I can only outgrow them. But I’m just so fucking exhausted, hurt, terrified, angry, triggered. I’m tired of being all these things. I need to rest.

DOJ orders Ferguson police to stop wearing ‘I am Darren Wilson’ bracelets
September 30, 2014

A Department of Justice letter sent to the Police Chief Tom Jackson of Ferguson, Missouri on Friday instructed all officers to stop wearing “I Am Darren Wilson” bracelets. Another letter issued on Tuesday ordered members of the police department to wear readable name plates, after officers were seen wearing unidentifiable tags or none at all.

Protests have not stopped in Ferguson since officer Darren Wilson shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was unarmed, in August. And in response to civil unrest, which gained steam again after Brown’s memorial was burned to the ground on Tuesday, and the use of the slogan “I Am Mike Brown,” officers werephotographed wearing the bracelets supporting the officer who killed him.

The DOJ letter sent to Jackson explained that the bracelets contributed to an “us versus them” mentality and “upset and agitated” others.

In a separate letter, the DOJ also said that officers must stop violating name tag protocol by obscuring or altogether not wearing their name tags. The practice, DOJ said, “conveys a message to community members that, through anonymity, officers may seek to act with impunity.”

Ferguson police previously drew national attention for the militarization of officers, which made the town look like a war scene and resulted in the arrest and attempted censorship of journalists on the ground. And clashes between police and protestors haven’t stopped.

Although Jackson gave Brown’s parents a video apology and joined protesters in the streets this week, Darren Wilson still hasn’t been charged, raising questions about the justice system and politics in the town. Ferguson has a history of racial tension, and research shows that justice is hard to come by for victims of police brutality. For example, a Supreme Court ruling gives police legal deference to determine “reasonable” force. But protestors say civil unrest will continue until the officer is held accountable.

When will the DOJ say something about the unlawful arrests of protesters or… the murder of unarmed teenager Mike Brown?

REMINDER: if you have a vagina and want to use Plan B as an emergency contraceptive, it loses effectiveness if you weigh more than 165 lbs (74.84 kg) and is completely ineffective for those that weight more than 176 lbs (79.83 kg) (x)

This is horrifying. And sadly true.

but there is a similar yet, better morning after pill called ella rx available at planned parenthood that is more effective for higher weights!
