A mural was painted over Monday afternoon after Trenton police expressed concern that the painting, depicting Michael Brown, a Ferguson, Mo., teen who was fatally shot by police in August, sent the wrong message about community and police relations.
#Ferguson — BREAKING NEWS
Mike Brown’s autopsy shows he was shot 3 times in the head. Once in the middle of his forehead.
Turns out ex Milwaukee Police officer was discharged due the random pat down of Dontre Hamilton, not killing him with 14 bullets
Christopher Manney murdered Dontre Hamilton.
Shot 14 times? For sleeping in a park? This guy should be doing life in the pen but this is the norm in America.
Im sure he’s gonna get his pension still. A slap on the wrist and moved to another district
This picture reminded me of the picture in 1965
“Hog-spitting – not just spitting,” Tonja Bulley emphatically clarifies.
“He just hog-spit at my baby. He hog-spit. He took everything out of him and spit in my daughter’s face. She is a minor. That’s the absolute worst thing you can do, when you spit on another human being. She was just saying ‘No justice, no peace’ and he hog-spit (at) and then smacked my baby. At that time — there was no more being peaceful.”
Bulley and her daughter, Brandy were released from jail last night after being arrested by police outside the St. Louis Rams game the previous day after a violent clash with football fans.
As the Rams were completing an impressive 28-26 victory over the Super Bowl champions Seattle Seahawks, Tonja and Brandy were outside the stadium participating in a non-violent protest calling for justice for Mike Brown, and the immediate arrest of his killer, Darren Wilson.
Tonja, known affectionately to her friends as “Tiny,” continued:
“We were peacefully protesting. We were saying something that this big, tall White man did not like. He should’ve been locked up, and they did not lock him up. One slapped my daughter and another hit her with his fist. Another woman threw her drink on me – and I retaliated. I’m not coming out to fight, but I have the right to protect myself.”
Tiny would eventually get punched and knocked to the ground. “I got hit by a couple people. I have a mark behind my ear.” She was initially charged with two felonies for throwing punches after the initial altercation. No violent Rams fans were arrested.
She says the racial double-standards were apparent: “We had a right to protest without anybody interfering. When the White people protest, there are no problems. Nobody is spitting on them. When we try to do it, the media goes around and acts like we started (the fighting.) We did not start it. I peacefully protest every day in Ferguson, and it’s never a problem.”
In Ferguson, Tiny and Brandy have been protesting since Brown was killed in August, and have become unofficial members of the Lost Voices—a spirited and well-known group of young leaders who led Sunday’s protest.

Stunning images from yesterdays 150 year commemoration of the Battle of Pukehinahina. Photos by Merle Seeling & Tania Lewis Rickard. More photos here and information about the 1,700 soldiers that entered the pā “The battle of Gate Pā was one of the few outright Māori victories against the British during the wars over land. The Māori warriors waited in reinforced bunkers, strong enough to withstand the bombardment. The pā itself was designed as a trap to draw in the British troops.”
I just wanted to see drawn-on (although not all of them are) Moko Kauae in the setting and on the people they belong to
Also that first image is one of my faves on all of tumblr 5eva
