But are you paying attention to what’s going on??? My heart is so heavy….. so heavy…

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.

A large crowd of protesters has descended upon a northeast neighborhood in Washington, D.C., taking over the streets, on Saturday night in a symbol of solidarity with their counterparts in Ferguson, Missouri, who called for justice for Mike Brown earlier during the day.

The Washington protesters chanted: “Whose streets? Mike’s Streets” and “We’re young, we’re strong, we’re marching all night long” as they walked down H Street northeast, at one point hitting the Bladensburg Road intersection, with police not far away.

"H Street shut it down, racist cops, shut it down," they sang while shaking tambourines, clapping and drumming.

The protest was being live-streamed on UStream.

Protesters also took to Twitter with the hashtag #DCFerguson.

The crowd, carrying signs that say “Am I Next?” and “Justice for Mike Brown,” has stopped traffic and some drivers are honking at the protesters. A man on the live-stream video said the march has halted two Greyhound buses from driving. The rally is a grassroots effort, said a man on a bullhorn who seemed to be leading the protest.

Brown, an unarmed teenager, was shot and killed by a police offer on August 9. His death sparked multiple protests in the St. Louis suburb of Missouri, some of which were met with tear gas and tanks. People in other U.S. cities have also marched in response, calling for justice for Brown as well as an end to racial inequality.

On Saturday morning, hundreds of protesters in Ferguson, led by Brown’s parents and family members, began their peaceful march on West Florissant Avenue, which has become the center of several demonstrations since Brown’s death.

Just filled out my health insurance forms!

yeah!!! fucking around with health insurance forms!!!!

I hate when people complain about “oh health forms are stupid they want my biological sex instead of my gender!!!!” or “they only have male or female!!!”
There’s a reason for that, you dumb fucks, and they’re referring to biological sex
Different health risks are present in different sexes, and whatever gender is in your head does not change the fact that if you were born female, you have a higher risk for certain cancers and osteoporosis, and if you were born male you have a higher risk for heart disease and often a shorter lifespan than a female.
In other words, your biological sex is an important factor in health and health insurance, and your special snowflake status doesn’t change that.

Coulda said it nicer but it’s true; it’s about health.

No. There gets a point where nice doesn’t work. There’s too many stupid ass angsty teens on here that are gonna get themselves seriously hurt or sick because they wanna be a special fucking snowflake. Lemme tell you a thing. Doctors don’t give a flying fuck what you identify as. All they want to know is do you have two X chromosomes or an XY? Because cancer and lupus and certain medicines don’t give a flying fuck what pronouns you use. This is about your fucking LIFE. stop being angsty for TWELVE SECONDS because when you’re in an ambulance or going into cardiac arrest or whatever the situation may be, it’s ESSENTIAL that you get your head out of your ass long enough to tell them your BIOLOGICAL SEX that you were BORN WITH. It literally may save your life.
