    Police continue to make arrests at Ferguson protest.

    Part 4.

    Take note: The moment people stopped reblogging and tweeting and writing news articles and calling attention to Ferguson, they brought back the armored cars. It is not over. They were waiting for the world to lose interest and knew it would.

BREAKING: Two White Construction Workers Who Witnessed Michael Brown Shooting Appear In Newly-Released Video Stating “He [Michael Brown] Had His Fucking Hands Up” [TW: Graphic Content]
NOTE: Watch the video by clicking through the picture above.
In new footage obtained by CNN, two contractors working in Ferguson, Mo. the day Darren Wilson shot Michael Brown react to the teen’s killing, with one throwing up his hands and shouting, “He had his fucking hands in the air!”
The men, who asked to be kept anonymous, told CNN’s Randi Kaye that they watched Wilson chase Brown, whom they claim threw up his hands and pled, “OK, OK, OK” before being fired on with his back turned. “The cop didn’t say get on the ground. He just kept shooting,” one said.
The video, taken minutes after the shooting, would appear to be congruent with previous eyewitness reports that not only was Brown unarmed, but that he had also put his hands up in clear surrender and Wilson fired anyway.

  5. sneezle said: Hey, sorry to bother you, I just have a friend whose suffering with depression, and I'm not sure how to handle things well without unintentionally hurting her. we've been friends for about two years now, and I still don't know how to reassure her that she's not hated, and I'm not secretly only interacting with her to laugh at her behind her back. I was wondering if you knew any general tips for comforting a friend with depression, since I've proven time and time again to be rather poor at it.

    That’s the thing with depression- it warps your mind into thinking awful thoughts about you and your loved ones. I like to compare it to building a wall around yourself or rolling up like a hedgehog- depression makes you feel horrible and isolated and all you want to do is lash out at people who care about you.

    I don’t know how old you + your friend are, but I think it’s time she gets help- there’s no amount of reassurance you can do to make her feel better. Her chemicals are all out of wack & she needs to seek therapy, & get on medication.

    The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline’s 24 hour toll-free crisis hotline, 1.800.273.TALK (1.800.273.8255) can put her into contact with her local crisis center that can tell her where to seek immediate help in ya’lls area.

    There are so many options, but I’ll list a few down below:

    Mental Health America affiliate is an excellent resource for information about local programs + services (including affordable treatment).

    Network of Care offers information including descriptions of community treatment services.

    Psychology Today’s Therapy Directory to search for mental health professionals in your area

    Therapist Referral Network at 1-800-843-7274 and 1-858-481-1515 provides referrals to individual mental health professionals.

    GoodTherapy offers a searchable database of over 1600 counselors and therapists worldwide. 

    American Counseling Association

    Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (patient to patient recommendation section)

    There are SO MANY options out there for your friend, but she needs to take the first steps.

    If you guys are still under your parent’s households, she’ll need to talk to them about it, which is a painful and often an embarrassingly raw conversation (which I didn’t end up doing, until I was out on my own as an adult and didn’t need to go through my mom, because of stigmas it made it difficult for her to understand I was suicidal/depressed/anxious from around aged 10 on).

    I hope this helps you!

    Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

    Ready? 

    Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

    (Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

    PLEASE. 

    Please do it. This one is important. You may not think YOU are important (you are, by the way) but if your representatives know that you care about how they vote, and if you call, and the person before you calls, and the person after you calls… then they vote to keep the internet the way it is. 

    DOOOO ITTTTTTTT (said in the reassuring voice of the thing under your bed when you were tiny)

     
  7. This is exactly how I would have responded too.
