Chels’s cat brought this little dude in and we spent the better part of the day screaming and trying to catch him. Dad finally caught him and we let him go outside.

Uhm okay. Unpopular opinion time. But when you have someone who is putting their life on the line everyday to defend people from violent criminals (because that is what Mike Brown was) they have to have a way to defend themselves. The officer tried using non lethal force at first by shooting him multiple times in the arm. And when that didn’t work he had to use lethal force. The officer has a family, and he was attacked by a kid who was not afraid to use his size and strength against people. Did the authorities do the right thing following the death of Mike Brown? No. Obviously not. But I do not believe that the cop did anything beside his job.

Wow that is an unpopular opinion. As you know I’m all for cops but I gotta get on to them when they do the wrong thing and what occurred was SO WRONG. There is nothing that says Mike Brown was a violent criminal, nothing. The surveillance tape that seems to show him, we don’t know if it was him. The cop did not do his job. When a cop shoots they shoot for one reason TO KILL. That’s why they shoot, they never shoot to incapacitate someone. He had his hands up that’s what the autopsy report suggests yet he shot anyway and even more so the cop had no reason whatsoever to shoot six times. An unarmed kid, 6 times. No matter how you look at it, that is not okay.
Following that the police department of Ferguson has no idea what they are doing. I fully think they just aren’t trained. You don’t dress yourself in military combat gear to deal with a bunch of protesters and you NEVER NEVER point a loaded weapon at anyone. Now we have stuff going on where another person in the department said a bunch of racist things and yeah it doesn’t look good for that department clearly full of corruption. Because guess what? If this was an African American officer who shot a white 18 year old, he wouldn’t be on paid leave, he’d be in jail. Our system has some major kinks to work out. Studying this field for years has taught me this
But! They can change, NYPD used to be one of the most corrupt departments in the United States in the 1980’s and now they are doing pretty well. LAPD while also having issues have made the steps to change. And I believe Ferguson can too it’s just a shame this had to happen for the steps to be taken.

The autopsy report gives several reasonings behind the placement of the bullet wounds one of which being that the kid was charging him. And the person in the tape was wearing the exact same outfit as Mike Brown was when he was killed and fit the same physical characteristics. Not to mention the fact that there are medical records showing that the officer was assaulted by Mike Brown and there is Mike Brown’s fingerprints on the gun that was discharged once in the car.
And I completely agree that the justice department there is crazy corrupt. But getting mad at a cop who was protecting himself is not going to do any good.

Those medical reports were deemed as false. The frontal lobe punch he received was actually just a picture taken from google images as what a frontal lobe injury would look like. It’s pretty obvious at this point the department is covering something up.
The gun thing however is new to me and I never heard that anywhere so I’d be interested to hear where that came from. And as far as I can tell they aren’t mad at the cop but the department and how this was handled. And the situation in general. And can you blame them? Zimmerman should have been imprisoned, Dunn hid behind a faulty law and now another one of their community is murdered due to police brutality. Doesn’t matter if he was protecting himself or not, what he did was not protocol and as such is police brutality. That’s why they are upset and I agree with the people saying something should be done, because it should. Again if it was a black cop who murdered a white kid, he’d be behind bars. It shouldn’t be that way. Officer whatever his name shouldn’t be on paid leave of all things. And his “Support Officer whatshisname fund” should even be a thing, much less have more money donated than Mike Brown’s fund.     

What is the Mike Brown fund even supporting though? That officer will probably have to relocate out of the area to protect his family. The actions of the public after the shooting does not imply that he or his family would be safe. And I haven’t seen that the medical records were fake from a real source. Just people gossiping on the Internet. I’m not on my computer so I can get a source for the finger prints thing at the moment but this is a quote from an article about the second autopsy that his family had done. "To a forensic pathologist, the body diagram Brown’s attorneys released tells a different story. The wound at the top of the head, the frontal wounds and angled right hand and arm wounds suggest that the victim was facing the officer, leaning forward with his right arm possibly extended in line with the gun’s barrel, and not above his head.The image of a person standing upright with his hands in the air when he was shot does not appear compatible with the wounds documented on that diagram.”http://www.cnn.com/2014/08/20/opinion/melinek-michael-brown-autopsy/index.html?c=&page=3(I’m on my phone so my formatting is gross. Sorry.)
It then continues on to say that that doesn’t mean that he was charging. Just that his hands did not appear to be in the air.
This article talks about the fact that a shot was fired in the car. It doesn’t mention finger prints, but the fact that a shot was fired during the struggle in the car implies that there was a fight over the gun. 
http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/08/14/michael-brown-ferguson-missouri-timeline/14051827/

That’s the thing with news reports I read another one that said his hands did appear to be in the air, from an off shoot of CNN HLN. So we’ll never know the truth. And the public was never unpeaceful until the cops came at them with guns and tear gas, the officer is going to be perfectly fine if these pasts cases have anything to go by. The sad part is the violent protesters were people not even from Ferguson who made it worse for the Ferguson natives. As for what the Brown fund is for probably court fees and memorial service. Funerals /caskets/ all that stuff is super expensive and I bet his family can’t afford it.That doesn’t change the fact that white supremacists have an officer fund and have some very racial comments similar to what nazi’s would say. Both sides have made some mistakes the the officer support group has made far worse and continue to do so due to the vilification of black males. He shouldn’t have shot. And because of him an 18 year old child is dead. I don’t care if he was in fear for his life, or he was being charged as I still don’t believe though as eyewitness reports all say he was down on the floor and officer continued to shoot. But whatever I just can’t get over shooting 6 times that’s where my hangup is. He shouldn’t have done it and needs to face the consequences which currently he isn’t facing. It’s a hell more complicated than that that’s the main thing. Had he followed protocol Brown wouldn’t be dead.    

Yeah I mean, I dunno. It’s really hard to say until like there are more official reports. Because there are a lot if conflicting reports. Plus a lot of the eyewitness reports have been proven false. Especially the ones collected early on.I think that the police should be able to use lethal force if the public are willing to use force against them. So I mean, I don’t think that Mike Brown deserved to die, in legal terms death is not the punishment for theft or even assault. But had Mike Brown gotten ahold of the gun this could very easily have been a different story. And while the people donating to the officer might be terrible people it doesn’t mean that the officer is.

The officer tried using non lethal force at first by shooting him multiple times in the arm. And when that didn’t work he had to use lethal force. The officer has a family, and he was attacked by a kid who was not afraid to use his size and strength against people. Did the authorities do the right thing following the death of Mike Brown? No. Obviously not. But I do not believe that the cop did anything beside his job.
And did Mike Brown deserve to die for what he did? Probably not, but the cop didn’t deserve to be harmed either.

However, A lot of animals are only bred for the pure reason of creating produce to sell and to be eaten, it gives money to farmers, and also if everyone stopped eating the meat then they may stop selling the meat and breeding the animals. In other words they could become extinct. Don't get me wrong I have absolutely nothing against vegetarians and vegans (my boyfriend is even vegetarian) and i know a lot of the animals are treated horribly, and I understand that.

Extinction is an ecological problem, while most farm animals do not exist inside of a natural ecology. If all the cows went extinct, that would be ecological fine (actually, beneficial) because they are not natural animals, they were created by human breeding. There has never been a wild cow in the history of ever….though cow ancestors (like bison) are still around, the direct natural ancestor of the cow, the Auroch, is already extinct.

Pigs would not go extinct…they live in the wild in lots of places. Chickens probably would…though their wild counterparts are also doing fine. 

The question of “what would happen if all people stopped eating meat” is a very interesting one. I would like to answer that question…possibly a very good video idea…

But I can’t really imagine that people will stop eating meat unless meat becomes completely unavailable. 

It would have to go as far as everyone in the world becoming vegans. Because even if cows and chickens aren’t being raised to eat the still would be being used to make milk and eggs. And with the way that factory farming works I’m not sure what kind of impact everyone not eating meat would have on that because what do you do with the boy cows and chickens?
That would create either a very high population of male chickens and cows, or more likely a lot more waste produced in those areas in the form of dead animals.

Earlier today, I served as the “young woman’s voice” in a panel of local experts at a Girl Scouts speaking event. One question for the panel was something to the effect of, "Should parents read their daughter’s texts or monitor her online activity for bad…

I think that obviously trust is important between a parent and a child. But a parents most important job is to protect their child.
The content you can find on the Internet even without looking is far too disturbing to leave a child on it without monitoring. But at the same time I think that it shouldn’t be sneaky. Your child needs to know that you will read their texts, or check their browsing history.
