A Texas man is under arrest after gunning down a SWAT team member as the officer quietly tried to climb in through the apartment’s window during predawn hours.
Police State USAreports  that a resident fatally shot Detective Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie as the officer climbed in through a ground level window as part of a “no knock” raid. The officers were there due to suspicion that residents were in possession of controlled substances.
Upon hearing a noise, resident Marvin Louis Guy, 50, opened fire on the unidentified officers, shooting three others as well, although only one fatally.
Guy is currently being held on capital murder charges in connection with Dinwiddie’s death, even though it’s unclear how Guy was supposed to know that the men crawling in through the window were police officers since they hadn’t identified themselves.
The evidence sheet lists a laptop, a safe, a pistol, and a glass pipe, but no drugs were found. Given the evidence, why did police deem it necessary to seek a “no knock” warrant and why did a judge sign off on it?
Very little is known about Mr. Guy, but Dinwiddie left behind two children, all because his SWAT team went creeping into a home where the residents didn’t even have any drugs. Is that the best use of law enforcement tax dollars?
Guy’s bond has been set at $3 million dollars.

Thank you lieutenantnorals!

It has nothing to do with white people you fuck! For all you know the swat team couldve had black members. This kind of ignorance is going to tear this country apart. Instead of focusing on police brutality and joining together and taking down the tyrannical police departments, were simply blaming it all on race, just like they want us to.

Folks,The original post didnt state anything about white people

No your right it was the person i reblogged it from he tagged it with a racial remark. But what im saying is that it has nothing to do with race, its about police brutality and we all need to stand TOGETHER against it. You feel me man?

No, because police brutality disproportionately targets people of color.. Race DOES matter.. I’m sorry that you’re white and don’t know shit about race/racism so it makes you uncomfortable but for those of us who are NOT white we have no choice but to know that usually, this stuff IS about race..

"There could have been black SWAT team members" so utterly misses the point that one is inclined to assume that missing the point WAS the point.
OF COURSE this is about race. I looked for background about this case and I found a bunch of people citing it in triumphant backlash against protests around Michael Brown’s death. To many, that’s all this case is. A black man gunning down a white cop. That’s the narrative they will shove this case into. That’s the narrative that has Marvin Lewis Guy facing the death penalty for an act that gun rights activists have explicitly sought to promote. And where are they now? Maybe they’ll hear about this case and get upset, but then they’ll see the mugshot and sit on their hands.
How is this about race? Look up Henry Magee. Just like Marvin Lewis Guy, he is from Texas. He also had a swat team raid his home looking for drugs. Unlike with Guy, they actually FOUND drugs, though nothing remotely like what their informant suggested. Like with Guy, Magee shot and killed an officer trying to force his way into his home. But unlike Guy, the prosecutor didn’t ask a Grand Jury to indict Magee and sure enough, they didn’t. He faced no charges for the shooting.

Henry Magee is white.

i really like this ultrafact because the setup implies something funny or unexpected is going to happen, but not only is the ‘punchline’ actually just standard torturous murder but the lack of punctuation adds a bizarre, text-post quality to the tone. syntactically speaking this ultrafact is a piece of accidental genius

The Mongol Empire was the safest place in the world as long as you didn’t backstab the Mongols.

To add to this, he actually sent two. The first was to sorta present a message of peace telling the leader in essence “We’re both great leaders of great empires and equals in stature.” and after the fucker killed the first caravan he sent another to figure out what the hell happened because maybe the fucker didn’t know who he was.
Then he invaded and utterly erased the empire off the face of the earth 

Did you guys know that Genghis Khan even went so far as to divert a river through the Khwarezmid emperor’s birthplace, erasing it from the map? This was how mad the emperor made Genghis feel. (Source)

History Tumblr is often full of gems like this.
White folks will have you believing Ghengis was a mindless murderer, but he damn near took over the entire European peninsula and GOD how different would the world be had he succeeded?

Just yesterday I was thinking that I needed to learn more about him…

    "She immediately alighted, caught hold of the astonished youth, and gave him a sound thrashing, using her fists in a scientific fashion…”

    I would love to know what this means.

    I think that might be code for “punched him in the balls with devastating accuracy”.

    fuck

    THIS IS EVEN BETTER WITH THE ARTICLE!!

    Well he shouldn’t have been imbibing. The youth was clearly asking for it.

    Spectacular.

    Ethiopian Activists Fight US-Backed Land Seizures

    "Fasil is just one of the estimated thousands of students who were detained during university protests against the IMP. Though Fasil was beaten, electrocuted and harassed while he was imprisoned last May, he considers himself lucky. “We know that sixty-two students were killed and 125 are still missing,” he confided in a low voice."

  9. So the Vagine Regime documentary has arrived.  I had previously thought it was just sorta about the team and the community.

    The trailer floored me, and I had to fight back tears even with that “putting on makeup” shot.  I was expecting a Roller derby documentary, and I got one, but…  wow.

    Here’s holding out hope that it lives up to what I hope it can be.

     
  10. T minus 10 days

    My mind is so not able to think about anything except for playoffs. So keyed up, so fucking proud of my team, so anticipating this damn tournament. Looking forward to skating against Freight Train again, anticipating the possibility of OHRG and CN Power rematches, possibly getting to sit and talk with max-welp about their general awesomeness and derby, skating skating skating.

    Brain is on fire, brain is yelling, cannot stop visualizing, cannot make the code seem important. Derby is coming.

    this isn’t shade to anyone, but yall need to stop acting surprised when your fave celebs fuck up. they’re part of a ruling class who are thoroughly isolated from concrete global issues and catastrophes and actually rely on the disenfranchisement of others to sustain their status. their entire persona is inherently problematic as ultimate beneficiaries of capitalism. what ethics do you expect, idgi

    2013 WFTDA Championship

    I am jealous that Nashville gets to host the 2014 championship. I am grateful to watch the 2013 championship locally. Smart move by WFTDA to schedule it during Halloween.

    MINE!  ALL MINE!  :D :D :D

    One is Cobra approved, the other is not.

    cobrakaiderbycoach:

    Saw two things at a bout this weekend I’d never seen before.

    Thing #1: Because of the configuration of the rink, the jam line had to be on the opposite side of the track from the benches. To make sure they got their desired line-up positions in the next jam, the home team would call the jam off near the line whenever they could and have one blocker stay on the track. That blocker would establish a position laying down in front of the jam line until her teammates who were skating in the next jam got there to take her place. Then she’d skate off into the ref lane.

    This was brilliant because not only is it not a penalty to have extra skaters heading towards the bench in the ref lane when the whistle blows, the opposing team could get a penalty for knocking that lingering skater out of position even though they weren’t skating in the same jam.

    Thing #2: Saw a visiting team jammer get knocked down and out. As soon as she got back up and in it happened again. And again. And again. The home team blocker was really good at staying 19 feet from the back of the pack and putting her onto the floor.

    The fourth or fifth time it happened the jammer waited until her coach wasn’t looking and stepped onto the track in front of the opposing blocker.

    That’s right. She couldn’t handle the pressure so she got herself sent to the box on purpose. She handed the other team at least 15 points and lead in the next jam.

    What do you think about her decision?

    I don’t think that in #1 an opposing skater could get a penalty if she has downed herself.  In fact, she puts herself at risk for one by laying down.  That said, holding a position on the jam line is a time honored strategy*.

    * during the 3 years I’ve skated.

    #2?  That sucks.  That sucks HARD.  First of all, no, never give up a power jam intentionally.  Second of all, her pivot should have gone back to help her well before then.

    Fail all the way around.
