But are you paying attention to what’s going on??? My heart is so heavy….. so heavy…
An attorney for the family of John Crawford III, the man fatally shot by police in an Ohio Walmart store, says surveillance video contradicts the police department’s version of events. Officers say Crawford refused to drop the pellet gun he was holding, but the video allegedly shows them gunning him down “on sight.”
Crawford, 22, was shopping at the Beavercreek, Ohio store on Aug. 5 whenpolice responded to another customer’s report that Crawford was carrying an AR-15 rifle. He was actually holding a pellet air rifle he had just picked up from a shelf in the store’s toy department.
Attorney Michael Wright says he viewed surveillance video that shows Crawford was facing away from the cops and talking to his girlfriend on the phone when police spotted him, and didn’t have the toy gun raised. Hetold WDTN Crawford probably didn’t see or hear the officers before he was shot.
"John was doing nothing wrong in Walmart, nothing more, nothing less than shopping,"Wright said, according to Reuters.

You know that feeling when you want to say someting good to someone you like and who’s terribly down but you have no idea what to say and how to say and how not to sound weird and then you end up saying nothing at all?
I hate that feeling.
I’ve been nominated by hobbitscoot and I nominate now utabay, aliceramone, theolddictionary and dreamboatqueeen.
I hope you won’t find this video too long and boring, but I wanted to spread some actual awareness about what the ALS (SLA in italian) is, and I did it in my way, since I have not the knowledge and skills to explain it medically corretcly and stuff.
Please check all these links and donate to the research. I know the economic crisis is marching all over the world, and I myself won’t be able to donate much, but please do it!
Also please whatch these videos, they might help you understand what ALS really is:
I wanna personally dedicate this to anyone out there who has something against african people, asian people, native american people, latino people, arabic people, all kinds of non-white people, gay people, lasbian people, transexual people, asexual people, bisexual people, pansexual people, all kinds of non-heterosexual people, all kinds of non-binary people, women, men, kids, retarded people, authistic people, queer people, depressed people, fat people, thin people, and I am sure I forgot a lot of labeled people.
We are all the same, we might be different, but we are all the same.

I saw a lot of challenges but not much awareness, so I explained about ALS whilst doing the Ice Bucket Challenge.
PLEASE WATCH THE WHOLE THING
if you keep reblogging celebs dumping water all over themselves, even if you’re not, please watch this. please please please watch this.
I almost closed the video, when I saw it took 5 min. cause I thought Yeah the guy in the bikini is funny, but I don’t wanna watch him for that long, but I’m so glad I did! This is without competition the most important ALS video I’ve ever seen
I never thought I would say this—because this makes me sound like a cynical asshole—but it’s way easier just being sad than being ready to participate in the social world. It’s like coming off of a deserted island and having to figure out how to communicate with other people. Jesus, I sound like such a prick right now, but fuck high school.
