s2g if my job wasn’t going to be out from under opd control come next year i would have quit today.

i like my job but it takes all of my strength to go into work and have to look cops in the eye and play nice. even if they are just desk jockeys that sucked at their job enough to get dumped at the shelter.

GoFundMe is allowing a campaign for people to donate money to Darren Wilson, the cop who killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO.

When called on this, and how it violates their ToS, GoFundMe’s response was to delete the hateful, disgusting, racist comments from the donations. They refused to end the campaign. Apparently it is only “promoting hate, violence, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime” if people can see the deplorable sentiments behind the donations. Somehow deleting the evidence of those sentiments magically changes what those donations are for: rewarding a police officer for killing Michael Brown.

This is absolutely a direct violation of GoFundMe’s ToS, yet GoFundMe is refusing to act. These are people giving money to an individual that gunned down an unarmed black teen. He is profiting from this killing, and it directly promotes racial intolerance and violence. There is no reason why GoFundMe should allow this campaign to continue…

… Except that GoFundMe gets 5% of the cut. In this case, 5% of 235k is $12,500. GoFundMe and Darren Wilson both are profiting off the killing of Michael Brown, and GoFundMe has decided they’d rather take their cut of the money than follow their own ToS. $12,500 is apparently what it takes to abandon justice.

Please, join in the boycott of GoFundMe, and consider signal boosting this.

Thank you.

Go fund me has done other shitty things as well.

just to be clear, we are looking at a scenario in which the very organization tasked with investigating an officer-involved-shooting… are behind the donation drive to support the officer involved in the shooting

I just phrased that in the most neutral terms possible and it’s still absolutely damning

Found at Valencia & Clinton Park in San Francisco.

"Alejandro Nieto, was murdered by SFPD on the evening of March 21st on Bernal Hill—a death by gentrification. Alex was student at City College, and worked as a security guard at the El Toro nightclub. That Friday evening, he decided to eat a burrito at Bernal Hill before his shift, looking out over his beautiful city, the place he was born and raised. Alex was a peaceful man, a Buddhist, and a worker, trying to get by in this time of uncertain futures. Then, some suspicious passersby called the police, not to alert a crime, but to report a man allegedly carrying a gun. Alex was not holding a gun, but a licensed taser he carried for his job. The police arrived minutes later and confronted him. Seconds later, Alex was shot to death. His crime: being brown in a changing neighborhood.”

[First of two images depict wheat pasted posters on the side of an unused storefront. They both show a black and white rendering of a young latino man, reading: Justice for Alex Nieto, Brown Lives Matter. The second Image shows two of the same posters from a further distance, on the same street corner, next to a one way sign and a mural of a reclining white woman with a backdrop of the Golden Gate bridge.]

The young lady that was shot in the head by a police officer is still waiting to be interviewed by the police department
Ferguson Police claimed that 4 to 5 Black males conducted a drive by which resulted in a White woman being shot in the head. (Here, Here, Here)
(they’ve edited the articles to take out the white part and that she was killed hehehe)
Residents knew it was BS. 
Turns out Mya was shot by a police officer. The department forced surgeons to take the bullet out and took the bullet for “Ballistics”
Over a week later, she still has yet to be contacted by the department
Do not let her story go ignored
