  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson

So my school is fighting back against this principal

August 14- Principal Rich Thomas, in a senior class meeting about new rules and policies, when explaining the new phone policy, said “I don’t care if your Aunt is laying on her deathbed, you aren’t getting your cell phone back if we take it.”

Made a male student change out of his tank top in front of the school in front of him and at least 50 students into a shirt that followed the new dress code.

August 15-on- Constantly scans hallways, walkie talkie in hand, searching for students to either A. Give tardies to or B. Send to the In-School-Suspension room (ISS).

August 19- Pulled approximately 50+ female students from classrooms to be sent home over wearing gym/running shorts, made the girls who weren’t old enough to drive, and who’s parents couldn’t bring them clothes sit in ISS the rest of the day, even though this was many of their first EVER offenses.

August 20- Sent Mariah Adams home for wearing the outfit included in the picture attached.

Side notes: Was fired from Scott County High School for discrimination of the LGBTQ community members of the school.

Is forcing all students to wear lanyards with IDs to get into school.

Gives ISS after 4 total tardies in one semester, giving us 0.007% success rate in not going to ISS. With a total of 150 tardies within the first three days of school because of new, non-relenting policy.

Has expanded ISS room from capacity of 15 to capacity of 40 students with knowledge of the fact that he would be sending multiple student there for menial reasons every day.

And he also was fired before from another local school. LGBTQ Nation sent him a letter and sued the school: http://www.lgbtqnation.com/assets/2013/02/021413_Scott-County-Prom-Letter.pdf

The local news network has gotten word if the large amounts of chaos in the school and the nauseating dictatorship he’s made of our school.

We’re located in Perryville, MO. Literally and hour and half away from Ferguson.

Signal boost this, it’s important

People are losing their fire and forgetting about Ferguson. That’s exactly what the police want, though: for all of this to just go away and for people to forget about it.

Don’t let that happen.

#SaveInTheFlesh Social Media Sundays - masterpost

What is it?

It is a monthly fandom event and part of the wider #SaveInTheFlesh campaign. On the last Sunday of every month at 10pm UK time, we all suddenly start talking about In The Flesh on facebook, twitter and tumblr, and we make sure that the BBC sees by tweeting at their twitter accounts, writing on their facebook walls and mentioning their blogs on tumblr.

Why a particular day at a particular time?

In The Flesh has a lively, rapidly growing fandom. But we are still relatively small. In terms of numbers, we can’t really compete with shows like Sherlock, Supernatural and Doctor Who. So we need to be more organised to get our voices heard. By all talking at the same time, we create a sudden jump in activity for In The Flesh across the BBC’s social media platforms that gets noticed and shows how much we love the show and that we want to see more. 

Does it work?

As part of the overall #SaveInTheFlesh campaign, the ultimate aim is to get a new series of In The Flesh. So we won’t know if it has worked until we hear definite news either way.

But it also brings in new fans as dashes get filled with wonderful new posts about the show. It shows the cast and crew how much we appreciate their work. And it helps bring the fandom together in a monthly celebration of the show. It works because anyone can take part, whether you are a hugely popular blog or not - your notification in the BBC’s activity feed that you want to save In The Flesh shows up just the same. You don’t have to apply to join any “network”, you don’t have to be following us or even “like” our posts about the event. You just need to make your own post or tweet and publish it along with the rest of the fandom.

Here are some success stories from the campaign:

So yes, it does work!

How to take part:

tumblr

  • Create a post - this isn’t about likes and reblogs, this is a show of numbers. It could be a bit of fan art you’ve made, a gifset, an edit, your favourite quote, a picture of your favourite character, or even just one of the images above
  • Here are screencaps for series 1 and series 2 for images and here are the scripts for quotes. Or you can use this free to use fan art from ruvillie and these free to use gifs.
  • In the caption, say how much you like the show and that you want another series
  • Include mentions of BBC Three and BBC America - do this by typing “@ bbcthree” and “@ bbcamerica” in your post without the space. When it has worked, the @ will disappear and the text will become a link. The BBC’s tumblr accounts will then get a notification when you publish the post so they’ll see that you support the show
  • Tag it saveintheflesh
  • Schedule it for 10pm UK time on the next Social Media Sunday

facebook

  • At 10pm UK time on the day, write on BBC Three’s facebook page and BBC America’s facebook page that you want a new series

twitter

  • At 10pm UK time on the day, tweet #saveintheflesh at BBC Three and BBC America
  • Hootsuite and TweetDeck both allow you to schedule tweets ahead of time, and are easy to sign up for - just use your twitter login details. 
  • After creating your own tweet, retweet a few others from the tag a few minutes later
  • Get conversations going with your fellow fans - tweet questions and answer other people’s using the hashtag. This will help get the numbers up and ensure the topic stays busy. 

To work out when 10pm UK time is where you are, use this handy time zone calculator 

The Social Media Sundays campaign is recorded in this tag on our blog. It is a part of the wider #SaveInTheFlesh campaign.

If you have any more questions about Social Media Sundays or the #SaveInTheFlesh campaign in general, just let us know and we’ll be happy to help :)

No Charges for Cop Who Killed 13 Year Old Holding Toy Gun | The Free Thought Project 

Sonoma County DA announced on Monday that they will not be filing charges against Deputy Erick Gelhaus who shot a child through the heart, then 6 more times after the first fatal round, on October 22, in Santa Rosa, CA.

The young boy was walking down the street carrying a partially translucent plastic airsoft BB gun that resembled a rifle when he was spotted by Deputy Gelhaus and his partner Michael Schemmel.

Gelhaus ordered Lopez to drop his weapon, possibly confused because the orange tip on the toy was missing.

Lopez then began to turn towards the officer when the officer immediately opened fire, shooting to kill. Gelhaus told investigators that he could not remember if he identified himself as a police officer,

Seven bullets were fired at Andy Lopez within six seconds.  The officer’s report claims that he shot Lopez after he turned towards him with the toy gun, despite bullet wounds in Lopez’s side (which supporters claim may indicate he was struck while turning).

The altercation lasted a total of 19 seconds from the call for backup to “shots fired”.

After the 8th grader was on the ground, having been shot repeatedly, the officers then handcuffed the child’s dead, lifeless body.

New information released yesterday indicates Lopez may have smoked weed in the hours before the incident, the report states that he would likely have had “impaired judgement, slowed decision making and increased mental processing time, particularly when having to deal with performance of sudden, unanticipated tasks, including decisions that require a quick response.”

Jonathan Melrod, attorney and extremely dedicated activist, said the decision was based on “patent lies.”

“The police feel that we, the community, are their enemy, they police us as though they are still in Iraq or Afghanistan.” he stated.  He also said that using marijuana as an excuse is just a way to divert blame to the victim.

“Let’s assume there was THC. Does that justify executing Andy?” he demanded.

Gelhaus is ironically a firearms instructor, as well as a contributing writer to gun publications, despite having once accidentally shot himself in the leg in 1995 as he searched a teenager for weapons.

People gathered to protest the decision last night, and social media was full of cries of “You say justified- We say homicide!” and “Jailhouse for Gelhaus”.

Dozens of protests have been organized, mainly by other children who go by “Andy’s Youth”, and they have been passionate and intense.  From crossing police lines to bravely face off with riot policemarching and storming city council with crosses representing police brutality victims, to shaming killer cops they run into along their marches… these kids have been truly inspiring.

A demonstration to protest the decision was scheduled at the “hall of injustice” for Tuesday at 1pm.

It has yet to be announced if Gelhaus will begin patrolling the streets once again.  Lets hope he doesn’t.

Andy’s life mattered.

Officer Darren Wilson, who killed Mike Brown. Spread it like wildfire.

And PLEASE stop sharing the image of the black officer named Darren Wilson who serves in STLPD. That’s not the right person.
