"My big brother Ethan, who had Down syndrome, was killed by three police officers earlier this year. His crime? Not buying a $12 movie ticket. And now the police officers who killed my brother are getting off with no consequences.
On January 12, 2013, my brother Ethan went to the movies. When the movie was over, he returned to his seat to see it again. Three police officers told Ethan he had to leave, but Ethan didn’t understand why. He got frustrated and afraid when the officers told him he was going to jail. His aide came into the theater and told the officers that they should not touch Ethan because it would only make him more upset. He needed time to process their request.
But the officers didn’t listen. Witnesses say they threw Ethan to the ground and piled on top of him. Seconds later, Ethan couldn’t breathe, and eventually died. The coroner ruled that his death was homicide by asphyxiation.
My family waited six months for the truth about what happened that night, but the officers’ own department investigated and decided they deserve no punishment at all.” - Emma Saylor

Guys, do this and spread it around, ok.
I was walking down the sidewalk, listening to music, when I noticed this man waving his arms at me. So I pulled out my earbuds, and said: “What’s up?”
He replied: “How are you not going to photograph New York’s number one homeless man?”
Ohaguro is a Japanese aristocratic term describing the custom of dyeing one’s teeth black. In Japan, it existed from ancient times, and was seen among the civilians until the end of the Meiji period(1868 -1912). Pitch black things such as glaze like lacquer were seen as beautiful.
