Police in Ferguson, Mo., have violated their own reporting standards since last month’s controversial fatal shooting of Michael Brown by Officer Darren Wilson.
Ferguson Police Department protocol requires that a use-of-force report be submitted after all such incidents — lethal, non-lethal and even when barehanded physical force is used.
A written directive signed by Chief Thomas Jackson in 2010 states “early and accurate reporting helps establish agency credibility.”
But there is no use-of-force report for the Aug. 9 death of Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old shot multiple times in broad daylight in the middle of a residential street.
Yahoo News requested the review under Missouri’s public records laws. Ferguson City Clerk Megan Asikainen said the document doesn’t exist.

Not a stupid question, developing a larger, visible, adams apple is possible. Mine became much more prominent, it was slightly visible pre-T, but now it’s very visible.
I did this comparison a while back, but it shows how my adams apple has become visible.
" Tupac died at 25. If Malcolm X died at 25 he would have been a street hustler named Detroit Red. If Martin Luther King died at 25 he would’ve been known as a local baptist preacher. And if I had died at 25 I would’ve been known as a struggling musician. Only a sliver of my life’s potential.

reblogging again because i keep thinking of this quote in regards to Oscar Grant’s death. How far would that boy have gone in life if he hadn’t been killed?
