I know you're sick of this, but just so you know, no one "looted" the McDonald's in Ferguson. The window was already broken, and peaceful protesters ran inside and stole a bottle of milk to flush tear gas out of a woman's eyes. There are photos of this event happening. The protests aren't riots, and tear gas and "rubber bullets", both of which have extremely misleading names, are not appropriate ways to deal with them.
According to the Washington Post, a FOX interview with a protestor, and KSDK, a Quicktrip and a Walmart were looted, and that’s just from the first 3 results I get by googling “looting in Ferguson.”
I’m not saying the protestors are the ones doing the looting (though the interview on FOX would suggest at least some are), but it’s definitely happening.
From what I understand, though, the protests and the looting are two different events going on in Ferguson. Perhaps the people of Ferguson would see a lot less police presence if the looting stopped. Who knows, maybe there wouldn’t be such a militant presence at all if the looting hadn’t begun the same night as the protests. (Or maybe there would, I don’t have knowledge of police/civilian relations before this incident.)
So I agree with you, the police should not be using force on peaceful protestors, but I can see them being justified to stop looters and thieves.
I’m going to say… all of the above. Less the Yu-gi-oh cards, but I could always sell them.
My thoughts on the Doctor Who premiere are kinda run of the mill.
But I’ll say it anyway.
I LOVED Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor, he was so complex in relatable ways.
A lot of people are saying Clara finally “clicked” as a character in this episode, and I totally agree. I actually like her now, and I think it’s because of the sass between the two of them. Also, she isn’t trying to impress him anymore.
I liked Vastra and Jenny before, but in this episode they did very little except say multiple times that they are married and hate men.
Strax was hilarious. All the slapstick was hilarious.
Tomm Moore - Secret of Kells Watercolors
LOVE this movie. These watercolors are amazing as well. It would be interesting to see a whole movie in this style.
