Hedy Epstein, a 90-year-old Holocaust survivor was arrested on Monday during unrest in Ferguson Epstein, who aided Allied forces in the Nuremberg trials, was placed under arrest “for failing to disperse.” 8 others were also arrested.
"I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager. I didn’t think I would have to do it when I was ninety," Epstein told The Nation during her arrest. “We need to stand up today so that people won’t have to do this when they’re ninety.” Epstein is currently an activist and a vocal supporter of the Free Gaza Movement.

  • Look at the #Ferguson tag on Twitter and toggle between the everything, videos, and photos. Things tend to get filtered in weird ways on Twitter. 

Been watching these for the past couple days.

The charges against Shanesha Taylor has been dropped!! Taylor was arrested back in march for leaving her children in the car during a job interview. This morning a deal was reached, the deal will require Taylor to complete parenting and substance abuse classes as well a establishing an education and childcare trust fund for her three kids. With each education trust fund to have $10,000 in. The money will come the fundraisers that was set up on Taylor’s behalf to help with legal fees and other expenses. A total of $144,775 was raised. $144,775 from over four thousand donors.

By entering into this agreement and program, Taylor avoided a potential two year probation or a possible eight year sentence. 

If Taylor fails to follow the conditions of the agreement, the criminal charges will be reinstated. 

The term “tear gas” is a misnomer. For one thing, “tear gas” seems to imply something innocuous— you would think it’s just a chemical that makes you tear up. In fact, tear gas is a dangerous, potentially lethal chemical agent which is outlawed under the Chemical Weapons Convention for use during wartime. As the Omega Research Foundation argues: “Less-lethal weapons are presented as more acceptable alternatives to guns. But these weapons augment rather than replace the more lethal weapons. Euphemistic labels are used to create the impression that these weapons represent soft and gentle forms of control. CS is never referred to by the authorities as vomit gas, in spite of its capacity to cause violent retching.” NGO Physicians for Human Rights believes that “ ‘tear gas’ is a misnomer for a group of poisonous gases which, far from being innocuous, have serious acute and longer-term adverse effects on the health of significant numbers of those exposed.”

The true life is not reducible to words spoken or written, not by anyone, ever. The true life takes place when we’re alone, thinking, feeling, lost in memory, dreamingly self-aware, the submicroscopic moments.

DON’T FORGET TO SPREAD THE NEWS ABOUT EZELL FORD

25 years old with mental complications ,that everyone was aware of in the area of Newtown was complying with LAPD and was held down and shot 3 times in the back.

Witness’s say officers screamed out “shoot him” before firing at him. HE WAS HELD DOWN AND NOT RESISTING AND THEY STILL SHOT HIM. This is not getting any coverage and could easily be swept under the rug. I’m on mobile so please if anyone can post pictures,links,etc feel free to add.

It was great seeing Michael Che kill it on last night’s Daily Show.

If you haven’t seen it, Che was in Inside Joke a while back and he was also awesome in it.
