No justice no peace.
While other politicians have released statements and tweets about the situation in Ferguson, MO, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) published a searing, thoughtful editorial in TIME Magazine calling for a simple solution: demilitarize the police.
"Given these developments, it is almost impossible for many Americans not to feel like their government is targeting them. Given the racial disparities in our criminal justice system, it is impossible for African-Americans not to feel like their government is particularly targeting them…Anyone who thinks that race does not still, even if inadvertently, skew the application of criminal justice in this country is just not paying close enough attention."
Are you shitting me?
Rand fucking Paul recognizes racism better than Keke Palmer?
Rand fucking Paul!!?!!?
::logs off: I’m done
Who would ever think that I’d actually agree with Rand “fucking” Paul on something.
As the world watches the events unfolding in Ferguson, many people have thought “how can I help?”. As a public school teacher, my first thought is always…
Many school-age kids rely on school meals, and school has been closed since Monday in Ferguson, Missouri, where my wife, Jennifer, attended HS.
Kids are going hungry!
She is partnering with the City Council in Ferguson/Florissant. She has a food bank and an army of volunteers who can help distribute. What’s needed NOW is donations to help purchase additional food and necessities, and money to help cover hotels, gas, etc. for the volunteers.
ALL OF THIS MONEY WILL GO TO FEED KIDS IN FERGUSON. A dollar or a hundred, it doesn’t matter. You will be helping to put food in the mouth of a child who needs it. Regardless of your opinion on the civil unrest in Ferguson, there is no need for innocent children to go hungry because of it.
Here you go, #education. Do what you do.
