If I posted a picture of myself would it get any notes?
Help the fight against police brutality!
You should definitely do this, but please be safe and knowledgeable about it! Here are some resources for how to safely film/photograph police brutality, as well as information on YOUR rights as you do so:
Please be aware that different states have different laws on the matter. Check into them so you can know you specific laws, and what to expect if you film the police. Also check with your state’s chapter of the ACLU; many of them have tips on this matter, and some have pocket foldouts of your rights that you can use to convince the police that no, you aren’t doing anything wrong.
Seriously. Not that it isn’t sad that Robin Williams is dead…but an unarmed teen Mike Brown was murdered, the cop who did it is facing no repercussions, the town of Ferguson in which it happened is basically under attack, police are firing at peaceful protestors, 911 operators in Ferguson are telling people to “go fuck themselves” and calling people “black monkeys” and then hanging up, Ferguson police are arresting journalists and destroying their cameras, they are tear gassing protestors and shooting rubber bullets into people’s homes, among countless other atrocities I’m sure we don’t even know about. Some things need to be tallied about on the news and addressed by politicians WAY more than others
