Potent minimalist art sends a strong message about police and vigilante brutality in America

Journalist and artist Shirin Barghi has created a gripping, thought-provoking series of graphics that not only examines racial prejudice in today’s America, but also captures the sense of humanity that often gets lost in news coverage. Titled “Last Words,” the graphics illustrate the last recorded words by Brown and other young black people — Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and others — who have been killed by police in recent years.

Let us not forget their voices

Reblogging because of how bad it hurts my heart.

The cop who shot a dog in front of its 6 year old owner was fired after outrage from the community and a “Justice for Apollo” campaign.

The cop who shot an unarmed black teen is on paid leave and remains protected by his department. So far, days of outrage and protest have still not brought any justice to Mike Brown.

In America, in 2014, the life of a black man is valued less than that of a dog.

Literally.

How Fox host Todd Starnes reacts to Obama’s offering condolences to shooting victim Michael Brown’s family on Tuesday.

pee drinker todd starnes drinks his own piss again

why the fuck would the president of the united states send his condolences to the police. “my condolences on the death of your morals and all of the oaths that you have broken… so sad. much cry. much console” WTF

What does he need condolences for? “I’m sorry you decided to shoot an innocent teen an excessive amount of times”

Get this cunt fired…

"If you’ve done no wrong, surely the courts will look on you as innocent before proving you guilty."

I can’t even come up with irony for that, because shitstains like this make sure this never REACHES court.

He’s burying himself and hiding becuase he knows, he KNOWS he did wrong. He KNOWS He fucked up.

And he knows that the system that has gone to great lengths to ensure he won’t suffer anything worse than a suspension of ‘being fired’ can’t protect him from people who know his face, his name, and everything else.

Because he knows his face now is more memorized and circulated than Edward Snowden.

And he can’t hide from the fucking world.

Ferguson Officer Byran P Willman, the man who murdered Mike Brown, is comfortably sitting at home changing his facebook name to a cartoon character and going “tee hee no one will find me now!!”

Use his full name as often as possible, make it immediately come up when you google Ferguson or Michael Brown.

Make sure his name is marked in fucking history. They can’t fucking hide anymore.
