The public has continued to discuss the death of 22-year-old Victor White III, who died from a gunshot wound while handcuffed in the backseat of an Iberia Parish deputy’s vehicle.
OK. I KNOW YOU ARE ALL WORRIED ABOUT FERGUSON BUT CAN YOU FOR A SECOND LOOK AT THIS VICTOR WHITE CASE?
NOTHING ADDS UP.
APPARENTLY AFTER BEING SEARCHED TWICE (while handcuffed) HE PRODUCED A GUN AT THE POLICE STATION AND SHOT HIMSELF. HIS DEATH HAS BEEN RULED A SUICIDE.
YOU NEED TO SPREAD THIS TUMBLR. BECAUSE THIS IS BULLSHIT AND THE COPS ARE COVERING IT UP.
boosting this again. all this shit needs scrutiny. thats the only way we will get the reform we are literally dying to get.
Don’t forget: he didn’t just somehow magically conjure a gun. He didn’t just shoot himself with his hands handcuffed behind his back.
He shot himself in the chest. While still handcuffed.
That is the bullshit lie they are still fronting. Still.
73% of America agrees. Overturn #CitizensUnited
The candidates make the case for overturning Citizens United and getting big money out of politics better than we ever could.

Remember when during the 2012 Presidential election, Mitt Romney was caught on tape reminding people that Republicans only care about rich people? Many believe that lost the election for him. Well, it looks like history is repeating itself but this time, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was the one caught saying what he actually thinks about corporate America and the rest…
Food for thought…
Another REPUBLICAN Presidential Candidate.
The liberal, on the other hand, strives to establish and maintain the social, economic and political order without which there is no freedom. The liberal understands that the economic output and the civil liberties of a society are the products of the joint contributions of all members of society – of the plus-sum cooperative, rule governed and goal oriented efforts of all.
Many folks aren’t aware of the wily indirect connection between iHeart Radio (a Pandora copycat) and Clear Channel. iHeart is owned by Clear Channel, which is owned by Bain Co, which was founded by Mitt Romney… yes, the ‘Teapublican’ trail runs long and deep. Clear Channel also broadcasts Rush Limbaugh and the ‘Hate Radio Parade’ (Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck…) on over six hundreds of stations nationwide. Out of his mojo, Rush Limbaugh seems to be marching a few blocks behind the parade due to the loss of sponsors, radio stations, and popularity. In fact, he’s tripping all over himself these days and angering the public and vocal celebrities like Lewis Black.
Fighting Words from Rick Perry
AUSTIN (The Borowitz Report)—Lashing out at what he called the “Soviet-style” tactics of the indictments against him, Texas Governor Rick Perry said on Tuesday that the government had “grossly overstepped its traditional role of mandating transvaginal ultrasounds.”
Speaking to supporters in Austin, Perry blasted the indictments and called for a return to an era of limited government that focusses on requiring gynecological procedures.
“We are living in dark days indeed when the state of Texas is spending time and money probing its officials instead of its women,” he said, to thunderous applause.
At a deposition, Ferguson’s former police chief revealed that his staff did not keep records of incidents in which officers used force against citizens, so long as no one died; in other words, there was no way of telling how often incidents like Davis’ happened.
remember shit like this when they talk about how mike brown’s shooter had no disciplinary record
