Update, 4:30 p.m.: The ACLU, responding to BuzzFeed's Chris Geidner on Twitter, says that the officer involved in the incident described above has been removed from duty following a public ACLU complaint.
this is great and all but lets observe the fact that the moment a WHITE journalist is threatened, action is taken…while Michael Brown’s murderer still walks freely and the police officers threatening the lives of black people/hitting them with tear gas and rubber bullets are still on the clock
do that, but also kick out one of those lights and put your foot or arm through the hole so that other drivers can see you. the kidnapper won’t be able to see you as you wave for attention, and you’ll be much more likely to elicit a responce than just turning the lights off

Ferguson Police: Kicks out media and limits protestors to a “First Amendment Area”
funny, i thought the WHOLE COUNTRY was a first amendment area. silly me.
Funny that when they do this I only hear about it on tumblr, but when they try to limit guns and the second amendment it literally becomes a congressional uproar.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air 2x09 - “Cased Up” (November 11, 1991)
Cops have been put on notice: Let the cameras roll.
Camera-shy cops across the city were reminded they can’t legally take action to stop someone from filming them while they’re on the beat, the Daily News has learned. The refresher was provided in a memo the chief of department’s office distributed to all police commands Wednesday.
“Members of the public are legally allowed to record police interactions,” the memo states. “Intentional interference such as blocking or obstructing cameras or ordering the person to cease constitutes censorship and also violates the First Amendment.”
Cops can take action if videographers and shutterbugs “interfere with police operations,” the memo notes.
spread this like wildfire
when you see abuse, take out your phone and film that shit.
Post it on youtube, send it to the news, let the whole world hear about it.
DO NOT SEND IT TO THE NEWS!, SEND IT TO THE INTERNET OR EACH OTHER INSTEAD

When women can’t go out because they’re asking for rape, and black men can’t go out because they’re asking to be shot, it’s time for a fuckin’ change.
You know what I’m saying? I’m saying this is bullshit. If a sixteen year old Dean Winchester came face to face with a werewolf like that, he wouldn’t be alive. The werewolf wouldn’t grab him from the forearms. He or she would bite him and claw him till he was dead or too weak to move.
So yeah, this isn’t a werewolf. That’s just John.
Friendly reminder that Dean didn’t ever personally encounter a werewolf until Season 2, 11 years after this episode.
I WAS HAPPY WITH THE LIE AND NOW IM SAD SO FUCK YOU TOO
