The NYPD tried to start a hashtag outpouring of positive memories with their police force. 

If this were ever a bad idea, it was probably the worst idea for arguably the most corrupt police force in America. 

via Vice:

What the person running the Twitter account probably failed to realize is that most people’s interactions with the cops fall into a few categories:

1. You are talking to them to get help after you or someone you knew was robbed, beaten, murdered, or sexually assaulted.

2. You are getting arrested. 

3. You are getting beaten by the police.

In category 1, you are probably not going to be like, “Oh, let me take a selfie with you fine officers so I can remember this moment,” and the other two categories are not things that the NYPD would like people on social media talking about. Additionally, the people who use Twitter a lot (and who aren’t Sonic the Hedgehog roleplayers) are the type who love fucking with authority figures. In any case, #myNYPD quickly became a trending topic in the United States, largely because people were tweeting and retweeting horrific images of police brutality perpetrated by New York City cops.

In which the NYPD’s attempt at “public relations” backfires tremendously.

this had me dying of laughter

If someone can be kicked out of school for copying a paper, a person should be kicked out of school for raping another human being.

New York City: “25 years is too long! Justice for the Central Park 5!” City Hall, April 17, 2014.

In April 1989, five youths of color were framed by the NYPD, local officials and the media in the infamous Central Park jogger rape case — “the modern Scottsboro Brothers.”

After the five (now grown men) won their freedom when the true rapist confessed, and more than a decade after they launched a civil suit demanding reparations from the city, they and their families have still not received justice.

Mayor Bill de Blasio promised to settle the case within a week of taking office. Now more that 100 days into his administration, the Central Park 5 and their supporters rallied to demand an end to a quarter century of racist injustice.

Honor to our brothers who continue to stand up: Yusef Salaam, Kevin Richardson, Raymond Santana, Antron McCray, and Kharey Wise.

U.S. Military Veteran Emily Yates, Violently Arrest for Standing in the Shade 

Emily Yates -I used to think that as a veteran of the U.S. military, I was safe, at least while in America, from being brutally arrested with no warning, thrown into a tiny cell by myself for three days, and then charged by my own government with assaulting the very officers who had dragged me around by my wrists and ankles.

Please Watch this video and share this widely.

To anyone with a VHP who also strips for a living. Does it ever get in the way? Do you ‘rack yourself’ while while doing any stage shows, pole work or lapdances?
I’m getting mine Monday and am more nervous about it affecting my job over anything. Halp!

I have a VHP and it really never gets in the way of anything, especially when I dance or do lap dances. It’s actually been my favorite piercing since the first day I got it! It’s definitely been my best friend for the past seven years.
