A Democratic Missouri state senator representing parts of Ferguson who tweeted multiple times “fuck you,” at Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon defended her choice of words on Fox News Monday saying she did so because she was tear-gassed for three days.
“The reason why I used profane language is because he has allowed us to get tear-gassed for three days,” Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal said. “I am one of his senators in his party and he was at the state fair enjoying a country concert while we were getting teargassed and shot at. And yes, anyone who’s going to get teargassed deserves to say a few ‘F’ bombs here and there.”
“I represent my constituents, not Gov. Nixon,” the senator said. “He has been absent from the minority community his entire career and only comes before us when it is politically expedient for him. Or when he’s running for office, and because he has been outside of this community…let me tell you this, and this is important for your audience to know. He has still yet to come to ground zero. Yet to come to ground zero. He’s been in Florissant, he’s been in Normandy, but he has not spoken to the victims of the crisis we are dealing with and that is why I have called him a coward.”
run for president
Yeah, I want her to go big places, she’s the best.
No words. She was also with Talib who was told by police to keep his hands up or they’ll blow his brains out. And some resident protestors are exhausted with everything and saying that street medics told them they’re experiencing a subcategory of PTSD.
Fuck da police. Fuck da police. Just fuck them so much. Fuck the bad ones, fuck the good ones who don’t do shit about the bad ones, fuck the ones with quotas…fuck em.
TRIGGER WARNING: THIS VIDEO IS GRAPHIC
Video of the Police shooting that killed
Kajieme Powell in St. Louis 08/19/2014
(I hate posting things like this but it needs to be seen!!)
*EDIT: THIS IS A VIDEO OF HIM BE SHOT AND KILLED
WARNING TO ALL!!!
Oh my god I’m literally crying.
My soul hurts
Bruh count how many fucking shots they unloaded, it wasn’t even that serious bruh
They killed him and they still putting him in cuffs
You can’t deny this evidence and I hope those cops lose their jobs, never to work as law enforcement again.
Cried. Hard. Plain disbelief.
The police story was the man was 2-4 feet away and had the knife raised in his hand. But clearly he was way farther than that and his hands were by his side. These cops are obviously pussy, did they both have to let off 9 rounds? The first shot would have made him drop the knife and him and his partner could have handled it from there. But no. Trigger happy police had to go overkill and even cuffed him after he was dead.
i’m crying i don’t want to be alive in this world i fucking hate these piece of shit trigger happy racists
My life isn’t worth shit here.
"You’re not protecting the people and you’re not protecting property, so why are you there?"
bet money somebody behind the camera had to remind her to add in that last part before the segment was over
I’m just so emotionally attached to a lot of the people I follow. Like, I might not even talk to you, but I’ll see your little icon and url pop up on my dash and I’ll just stare at it and smile and be like: friend.
Talib and J. Cole are no B.o.B and T.I.
