This vine got taken down.
I think that’s fucking important to note, that this vine got taken down. I saw it and it languished in my drafts for a while because it fell through the cracks.
Remember this. Remember that they’re taking down protest videos. Remember that they’re trying to control the narrative. Remember, keep posting, keep sharing, keep talking about Ferguson. Don’t let the story die.
WAT TIME IS IT JESUS CHRIST
his life was totally in danger.
True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.

Tannaz Mehraban faced unimaginable hardships as a transgender woman in Iran — and she still struggles for acceptance in her new home in Canada.
Tannaz woke in the middle of the night to find her brother standing next to her. He told her they had to leave the house — immediately. Her family was going to kill her the next day.
Mehraban, who was only 13 at the time, had recently been kicked out of school for being someone who looked like a boy but dressed as a girl.Despite all she’s been through Mehraban remains hopeful about her future in Canada.
“One of my biggest hopes and dreams in Vancouver, in Canada, is to continue to learn English, to have a good career so I can contribute to society, to get married, to get a dog.”
She added that she also wants to be an advocate and help give a voice to other transgender people.
Mehraban is by no means worn down by life — and she wants to see how society will continue to transform in the future.
“I’m so curious to know, how are we going to evolve? How are we going to change?” she said.
"I would love to live for thousands and thousands of years, because that’s how much I love life.”
