The “urban heat island” effect  (where urban areas are far hotter than their surroundings) probably affects the place you live, and is only going to get worse from climate change.

Climate Central has the facts on how the heat island affects the major cities in the U.S., like New York — 20 degrees hotter than its subarbs!

"I’ve told the kids in the ghettos that violence won’t solve their problems, but then they ask me, and rightly so; “Why does the government use massive doses of violence to bring about the change it wants in the world?” After this I knew that I could no longer speak against the violence in the ghettos without also speaking against the violence of my government"

How many of us have weed in our system

Hell, I have weed in my system

I knew they were going to bring this up as a Reason that he is an aggressor.

Since when does marijuana make folks aggressive?

Since when does having marijuana in your system make you a raging criminal

The officer didnt even know that Mike a that in his system

But you see, they waited until the other autopsy was released to expose their own autopsy report

This is so much bullshit. They really are scraping the bottom of the barrel now.

Even if true OR relevant, having weed in your system makes you more likely to chill out than charge through a hail of bullets toward your certain death.

regardless of whether or not mike brown robbed a store, the chief of police in ferguson states the policeman who murdered him had no knowledge of the incident, making the crime itself and his death unrelated.

ferguson pd also corroborates witness statements that the murderer stopped brown and his friend for jaywalking.

"Don’t let the politicians chip away at the New Deal and the Great Society programs like Social Security and Medicare, that puts a floor beyond which the elderly, the sick, the powerless do not starve or lack for medicine or shelter."

"14-year-old Parkview High School Freshman, Caleb Christian was concerned about the number of incidents of police abuse in the news.  Still, he knew there were many good police officers in various communities, but had no way of figuring out which communities were highly rated and which were not.  

So, together with his two older sisters: Parkview High School senior Ima Christian, and Gwinnett School of Math, Science, and Technology sophomore, Asha Christian, they founded a mobile app development company– Pinetart Inc., under which they created a mobile app called Five-O.

Five-O, allows citizens to enter the details of every interaction with a police officer.  It also allows them to rate that officer in terms of courtesy and professionalism and provides the ability to enter a short description of what transpired.  These details are captured for every county in the United States. Citizen race and age information data is also captured.

Additionally, Five-O allows citizens to store the details of each encounter with law enforcement; this provides convenient access to critical information needed for legal action or commendation.”
