toocooltobehipster:

i was asked to make this rebloggable..

a lot of tyler oakley’s fans think people just don’t like him because they’re “jealous” of his popularity (lol), but there’s a lot more to it.

I remember seeing a tumblr post where someone call him out for a comment, and then he deleted the post from his tumblr. (But I don’t even where that post is now in my unorganized and disorganized tags and likes)

If a police officer’s job is to uphold and enforce the law — literally their one and only job description — and you knew that almost half of police officers think they’re above the law, what does that say? If half of them admitted it on a survey how many more do you think actually feel this way? 

What if I told you half of doctors don’t care about patient well-being, or half of farmers don’t care about growing crops, or half of our presidents dislike the public?

The law in itself is super problematic and terrible, but if on top of that police officers don’t even adhere to that at the very least, what does that tell you about the justice system? 

hey look what i found in my likes from a year ago 

And since we’re asking police and some of them lie I’m sure these numbers are much higher smh.

and shouldn’t people get involved in who they elect and what policies are for their city/town?

okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.

Is America going to start another Civil War over this? I hope not.

People trying to go home, get detained

This is a huge WTF in my head. They’re trying to comply to your bullshit rule and you’re still bullying them into being wrong. This is like those bullying teachers at school or something.

the fact that i had to find out about whats going on in ferguson via tumblr bc none of the news stations are talking about it and the fact that my family had no clue of it until i mentioned it genuinely concerns and scares me

When I actually turned on the news they had a guy on who was pitching the idea that it wasn’t racism at all; the guy seemed doubtful the officer did anything wrong and just blamed it on cops not being disciplined enough.

Missouri Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson is marching with protestors in Fergoson, MO.

After being given control of Ferguson from the Missouri Governor, Johnson has ordered all police to remove their masks and cease their violent tactics. He is protecting the citizens’ right to peaceful protest, and is actively engaging in dialogue with protesting residents.

‘The invisible pain’: Veterans march across Canada to raise PTSD awareness

The nightmares started soon after Jason McKenzie returned from Yugoslavia.

He replayed the feeling of the armoured personnel carrier he was travelling in with 13 other soldiers sinking into a muddy river, swept up under a blown-up bridge, as he struggled to get out.

“That’s where most of my trauma, most of my PTSD goes to,” said McKenzie, a 41-year-old Canadian Forces veteran who served in the former Yugoslavia in 1992 and 1993.

“I have a lot of issues at night waking up in the dark, coming out of a nightmare. I panic, and I know that I’m feeling the panic that I had that day.”

It was one of the memories McKenzie shared with his family for the first time recently, as he prepared a march across Canada to raise awareness for post-traumatic stress disorder.

New Statistics Canada data released this week shows one in six members of the military have reported experiencing symptoms of mental or alcohol disorders.

The idea for “Into No Man’s Land: PTSD Awareness March Canada” came from McKenzie’s friend and fellow veteran Steve Hartwig. And the goal is to let veterans – and the Canadian public – know that it’s ok to talk about PTSD.

“When Steve put the idea forward, it just resonated with me and I hadn’t actually sat down and talked to my family about my PTSD and the struggles I’d gone through since I got out of the military,” said McKenzie, a father of three.

“I shared that with them and it was a very profound moment, where we shed a lot of tears and they were just like, why didn’t you ever tell us about this?

“That solidified for me the importance of the journey. Because if that’s what I’ve gone through, other people have gone through[it].”

The two men plan to walk about 32 kilometres a day in 16 kilometre blocks – just like they do in the military  while carrying 50-pound rucksacks.

Blisters, tendonitis and other sports injuries are par for the course, and they are sleeping in a trailer in parking lots or with friendly strangers who take them in along the way.

Their march started on June 23 in Victoria, and will stop in Ottawa on Friday. The plan is to end on Sept. 14 in St. John’s, Nfld. A third veteran, Scott McIntyre McFarlane, recently left the march, to deal with his own PTSD.
