I'm not sure doubling down is a good PR strategy here.

Can't be accused of racism.  They're shooting white people too.

Praying without a permit, that's a tasering rubber bullet to the gut.

Police reports say she was praying for an almighty smack down, from our lord and savior. That's attempted assault of an officer an office. She's lucky to be alive.

Praying my ass, she was attempting divine spellcasting.

Rubber bullets should be banned. They can kill and cause permanent disabilities.

Good luck with that.  We can't even ban real ones in this country.

It's the kind of a biscuit that you bounce off a rioter and into your mouth.  And if it don't bounce back, you go hungry.

Actually, they react really well to bullets.  Steel plate?  Not so much.

Better rubber bullets than the kind they WANT to use.
 
2014-08-14 11:10:28 AM  
Not that I am an expert in such things, but that impact mark looks more like she got hit with a gas canister than a rubber bullet.

I've seen paintballs leave marks that look similar, so I'd have to assume a rubber bullet would do that kind of damage if close enough and at the right angle.

For the bruising, sure, but it's a wide area for the skin rupturing. Maybe a beanbag could do that. The sum of my experience, though, is paintball and my friend getting shot with a rubber bullet because he climbed a tree during a good old college "we won a tournament so let's burn stuff" riot.

It's going to boil over.

With all these pictures and videos by witnesses themselves being spread across the Internet, there's going to be a powerful response against the cops from the higher-ups. Too much evidence of brutality and excessive force.

The people are our journalists. Because journalists nowadays either don't care of the situation or are suddenly being arrested without reason.

Paris1127: Her shirt says AMEC... The African Methodist Episcopal Church?


Sounds like one of the schismatic groups that are aligned with an African Bishop so they can continue to exclude gay people from leadership roles.
 
2014-08-14 12:16:27 PM  
Don't forget arresting journalists, firing teargas at Al-Jezeera, and arresting an Alderman. Ferguson is going to have to hire NASA's centrifuge to put a positive spin on this crap.

Paris1127: Her shirt says AMEC... The African Methodist Episcopal Church?


Makes sense

"The African Methodist Episcopal Church has a unique and glorious history. It was unique in that it is the first major religious denomination in the Western World that had its origin over sociological and theological beliefs and differences. It rejected the negative theological interpretations which rendered persons of African descent second class citizens. Theirs was a theological declaration that God is God all the time and for every body. The church was born in protest against slavery - against dehumanization of African people, brought to the American continent as labor. The Mission of the African Methodist Episcopal Church is to minister to the spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional, and environmental needs of all people by spreading Christ's liberating gospel through word and deed. At every level of the Connection and in every local church, the African Methodist Episcopal Church shall engage in carrying out the spirit of the original Free African Society, out of which the AME Church evolved: that is, to seek out and save the lost, and serve the needy. "

Well, there is a history in the South of using waterguns to quell protests:

They also gassed a news crew and tried to steal their camera equipment but ran away when they realized another film crew was still rolling tape.

Journalists cover - or don't cover - what their bosses tell them to cover - or not cover.

It drives home this is just dress-up for local dumbfarks who want to practice their GI Joe Kung-Fu Grip and shoot some evil-doing terrorists without having to enlist.
