An attorney for the family of John Crawford III, the man fatally shot by police in an Ohio Walmart store, says surveillance video contradicts the police department’s version of events. Officers say Crawford refused to drop the pellet gun he was holding, but the video allegedly shows them gunning him down “on sight.”
Crawford, 22, was shopping at the Beavercreek, Ohio store on Aug. 5 whenpolice responded to another customer’s report that Crawford was carrying an AR-15 rifle. He was actually holding a pellet air rifle he had just picked up from a shelf in the store’s toy department.
Attorney Michael Wright says he viewed surveillance video that shows Crawford was facing away from the cops and talking to his girlfriend on the phone when police spotted him, and didn’t have the toy gun raised. Hetold WDTN Crawford probably didn’t see or hear the officers before he was shot.
"John was doing nothing wrong in Walmart, nothing more, nothing less than shopping,"Wright said, according to Reuters.

Papier d’Arménie, a type of Armenian paper produced in France, is a room deodorizing product sold as booklets of twelve sheets of paper each cut into three pieces, which are coated with benzoin resin, the dried sap of styrax trees.
Originally in the 16th century these were known as medicinal papers and burned to fumigate things only to slowly fall out of fashion in most areas of Europe. One area that did keep the practice alive was Armenia which used benzoin resin as the bases for theirs. If you’ve never sniffed benzoin, it’s somewhere between vanilla, balsam and, to me, rich amber. Gorgeous, especially during colder times.
At the end of the 19th century, Auguste Ponsot discovered that Armenian households would burn Styrax as a fragrance and disinfectant. M. Ponsot adopted this habit with the help of the pharmacist Henri Rivier and the recipe created by the celebrated French perfumer of Armenian origin Francis Kurkdjian, who recreated the recipe going from village to village in Armenia and France, whereby benzoin resin was dissolved in alcohol, then infused onto a blotting paper support. The “alchemy” inherent in Papier d’Arménie became a huge success with the emerging importance of hygiene from 1888–1889, and has been steadily produced in Montrouge, France since 1885.
Armenian paper is an integral part of French culture, and has been mentioned in works by greats such as singer-songwriter Serge Gainsbourg (in the lyrics to “Les Petits Papiers”), and the writers Georges Perec and Robert Sabatier (in his novel “Les allumettes suédoises” published in English as “The Safety Matches”).

Study finds: White children far more negative about interactions with different races than Black children.
Is anyone actually surprised though?
These are the children of the adults who were raised by the people who fought to keep Jim Crow alive. These children are being raised by the offspring of men and women who lynched black people for sitting on the wrong side of a restaurant; the very people who fought to keep segregation alive and killed Martin Luther King Jr.
So by all means, I doubt we needed a study to prove this fact true.To add to the above argument:
Even if the child is raised in a household where race is NOT a topic of discussion the child will still pick up on Racial Micro Aggressions.If you have never spoken ill of black men, yet you clutch your purse or lock your windows when one is around; your child will notice that and process “black men are dangerous”. If you discuss how you don’t like when people get tans and have darker skin your child will process “dark skin is ugly” and it doesn’t help that the mass media the child is watching also projects this notion that white is the standard of beauty and those who do not adhere are deemed ugly and unworthy. If you don’t associate with people of color or keep any relations short and brief?; your child will too.
Many parents fail to realize that their children are ALWAYS watching them, always. Just like baby ducks following their mama, a child follows it’s parents. It’s a survival tactic for a child to copy the adult and bring the caregivers characteristics into their own being.You may think “oh he didn’t say anything” or “he’s playing he’s not listening to my conversation”; but he is. Which is why many people turn out like their parents or develop similar parenting styles.

I just copped a whole heap of messages for reblogging a post celebrating Joan Rivers’ condition in hospital and frankly I couldn’t give an ounce of a fuck if she died because that old witch is notoriously racist, transphobic, homophobic and a zionist. Here’s just some receipts for y’all.
- Jan, 2011: Calls Michelle Obama “Blackie O”
- June, 2011: Says Tracy Morgan shouldn’t have apologised for homophobic rant - "Gay fans? What are they doing seeing him anyhow? Why aren’t they watching me and Kathy Griffin? What are they doing at this show? He’s lost his one gay fan."
- April, 2013: Jokes about the Holocaust - "The last time a German looked this hot was when they were pushing Jews into the ovens," Rivers said."
- Nov, 2013: Uses racist and homophobic slurs as she defends Alec Baldwin’s use of slurs.
- July, 2014 - "Palestinian civilians deserve to be dead."
- July, 2014 - Jokes about Obama being gay and uses transgender slur against First Lady calling her a ‘tr***y’
- July, 2014 - Uses n-word on live television followed by Jewish slur.
- August, 2014 - To Justin Bieber: “You are not a big black thug, you are just like your shoes – ordinary and completely white.”
This isn’t even all of it, it’s just a summary. Also if you watch the Fashion Police you would know how notoriously racist she is on there. So, yeah. I couldn’t care less if she died. Good riddance.
