Justice Department: Maybe Police Treating Ferguson Like Fallujah Was A Bad Idea

A bit like the end of Close Encounters, only with tear gas.
A draft Justice Department report on the police response to demonstrations in Ferguson, Missouri, last summer finds — and we hope you’re sitting down here — that the heavily armed police were heavy-handed in their tactics, poorly coordinated, and tended to make tensions between police and protesters worse. Who’d have guessed? Read more on Justice Department: Maybe Police Treating Ferguson Like Fallujah Was A Bad Idea…

Alabama ‘Pro-Lifers’ Want Abortion Clinic Closed To Protect Kids From Alabama ‘Pro-Lifers’

People who wouldn't let their kids see an R-rated movie take them to rallies to hold bloody fetus posters.
We’ll grant this much to the fetus fetishists of the “pro-life” crowd: they’re endlessly imaginative in coming up with new ways to make it harder for women to get access to a legal medical procedure. Take the fine folks in the Alabama Senate — please, take them! — who passed a bunch of restrictions and requirements for clinics that perform abortions (mandating the same structural standards as surgical facilities and hospital-width hallways, for instance). The Alabama Women’s Wellness Center (AWWC) in Huntsville opened a new office designed to comply with the restrictions, with the added benefit of having a full parking lot so patients wouldn’t have to walk past protesters offering them “counseling” by screaming “baby murderer” in their faces, from the sidewalk. But now, state senators are expected to pass a law that would prohibit abortion clinics from operating within 200 feet of a school — and the AWWC just happens to be across and down the street from a middle school that’s being refurbished and will be re-opening as a magnet school in the fall. How conVEENient! Read more on Alabama ‘Pro-Lifers’ Want Abortion Clinic Closed To Protect Kids From Alabama ‘Pro-Lifers’…

Surprise, Baltimore Police Are Pretty Much Constantly Beating And Paralyzing People

The city of Baltimore is enraged this week, after the arrest and subsequent suspicious death of a young African-American man name Freddie Gray, while he was in police custody. Details are hazy at this point as to what exactly happened, but this is what we know. Baltimore cops were patrolling on bikes in an area that was “known for drug dealing,” and Gray ran away from them. By the time they caught up to Gray and arrested him, as can be seen in video footage, he was shouting that he was in pain, and a bystander yells that his leg is broken. A witness, Kevin Moore, stated that the police “folded Gray like ‘origami’,” and added that “[t]he officer had their knee in his neck. And he was just screaming — screaming for life. He couldn’t breathe. He needed an asthma pump, which he let them know … They ignored it.” Read more on Surprise, Baltimore Police Are Pretty Much Constantly Beating And Paralyzing People…

Clever Gay-Hating Bigot Children Hang Nooses, Offer To Lynch Gay Kids. For Jesus.

Haha bros, sorry you dressed up as a gay stereotype and stuff.
Students at McGuffey High School in Claysville, Pennsylvania — not far from Pittsburgh, but far enough away that they are in the “Alabama” section of the state — have had it with having to live in a world where LGBT also live and make a point, one day a year, about how they do not want to be bullied (and worse) by their classmates, for being gay. So in response to the high school’s annual Day Of Silence, the Not Gay kids decided to hold “anti-gay” days on Thursday and Friday, where they all got to dress up as lesbians as bears in flannel shirts, and they wrote “anti-gay” on their hands, and, according to openly bisexual student Zoe Johnson, made a list of gay kids to hang, as kids do: Read more on Clever Gay-Hating Bigot Children Hang Nooses, Offer To Lynch Gay Kids.

Catholic High School Teachers In Gay Trouble

Good way to get out of that Calculus exam.
The kids of Dowling Catholic High School in Des Moines seem pretty cool, for stinky teenagers. They have a substitute teacher they really like, Tyler McCubbin, who is engaged to be married to his boyfriend, in a gay way. Which is legal to do in Iowa. McCubbin was in line for a full-time position at the school, but was rejected because his big gay life, according to the Diocese, “was at odds with Church teaching.” This pissed the students off, so instead of taking it lying down, they decided to stage a walkout: Read more on Catholic High School Teachers In Gay Trouble…

James O’Keefe Can’t Get Anyone To Say They Want To Kill Cops, Sadface :(

NOTE: Only one of these photos is a mug shot
Poor James O’Keefe has had another of his very serious undercover filmmaking projects blow up in his face, it appears. And for the strangest of reasons: a couple of his employees at “Project Veritas” seem to have decided that one of O’Keefe’s projects was actually too morally indefensible even for them.

Poor Dears At U Of Iowa Terribly Upset By Anti-Racist Art Piece. Makeup Tests For Everyone!

Even the far-left liberal blog Wonkette says you don't get a free pass over art that bothers you
The University of Iowa has urged faculty members to let students miss or re-take tests if they were upset over some campus art that was SUPER RACIST (because it addressed racism). Apparently some students were so broken up over either the artwork itself — or the controversy surrounding its removal by the university — that they simply couldn’t get their schoolwork done. Letting students ignore their assignments because they had really strong feelings about a work of art strikes us as maybe a bad idea?

Fox Knows Who Is To Blame For Ferguson Riots (It’s Still Eric Holder Obvs)

They just can't seem to quit him
Fox News wasted no time in repackaging the news that the Justice Department is not expected to file civil rights charges against Darren Wilson in the killing of Michael Brown, according to a report in the New York Times, into an astonishingly distorted pack of lies about Ferguson. Yes, we know you’re shocked. Read more on Fox Knows Who Is To Blame For Ferguson Riots (It’s Still Eric Holder Obvs)…

NYPD Making Friends And Influencing People, Except The Opposite Of That

Not actual NYPD officers
New York cops may want to rethink whether they were making friends and influencing people when they turned their backs on Mayor Bill de Blasio at funerals of two murdered NYPD officers. A new Quinnipiac University poll of New York City voters found that on the whole, people disapproved of the act by a margin of 69-27 percent. Only one demographic category approved, and just barely: Republicans were cool with it, 51-47 percent. Even cop-friendly Staten Island residents disapproved, although by the narrowest margin of any borough, with 50 percent disapproving and 47 percent approving.

NYPD Cops So Sad At Mayor De Blasio They Just Can’t Fight Crime Anymore

Take a nap on your own time
It’s a great week to jaywalk or jump turnstiles in New York City, as cops have pretty much decided to stop being cops at all until Mayor Bill de Blasio disowns his black son or at least makes him personally thank every police on the force for keeping him safe. Following the murder of two officers by a suicidal man who was not, we must note, the Mayor of New York, police have turned their backs not only on Bill de Blasio, but also on doing their jobs. The New York Post reports that “traffic tickets and summonses for minor offenses have dropped off by a staggering 94 percent” since the murders.

Rudy Giuliani To Obama: Stop Personally Murdering All The Cops, Right Now!

Screw you too, pal
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani placed the blame for the murders of two New York City policemen Saturday squarely where it belonged: on President Barack Obama, who had personally whispered “Go kill some cops” into the ear of Ismaaiyl Brinsley, a Baltimore man who killed himself after shooting the two officers, plus his girlfriend. (A lot of people keep forgetting about the girlfriend.) In an interview on Fox & Friends Sunday, Giuliani explained that the President and others had pretty much been calling for the killing of police ever since the August shooting of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri: Read more on Rudy Giuliani To Obama: Stop Personally Murdering All The Cops, Right Now!…

Rick Perry Sure Is Glad You Don’t Have To Be Smart To Be President

Oops ad infinitum
Gosh, Gov. Rick Perry (R-Indicted) sure is eager to convince us that he is SO ready to run for president in 2016. He’s been practicing his counting and his ABCs, and he’s got those glasses, and he’s stopped popping pain pills, and this time, America, this time, we won’t be laughing our asses off forever and ever and some-other-word-we-can’t-remember-what about the comedy gold that was Perry’s last attempt to win the White House.

Ferguson Grand Jury Says Darren Wilson Killed Michael Brown But It’s Cool

After dropping days of just-kidding hints and sending the media into a third-degree frenzy Monday, the grand jury mulling the fate of Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson finally released its decision. St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert P. McCulloch announced that Wilson will not face charges relating to the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown on Aug. 9, as the grand jury found “no probable cause” to charge him with anything. Social media, however, is definitely guilty. Read more on Ferguson Grand Jury Says Darren Wilson Killed Michael Brown But It’s Cool…
