While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.

Witness in murder of John Crawford changes story

You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.

Why aren’t people talking about this? 

I forget where but there was another police shooting recently too. It was a white young man, shouldn’t the white part also almost guarantee people should know about it?, had his headphones on and the police told him to put his hands behind his back or something. He took too long to remove his headphones so he could hear the police and they shot him. 

I’m not saying I hate police, but I understand the flaws. Also, Ferguson was a terrible tragedy and the police officers that are shooting people without real cause should be put in jail. 

But, Ferguson isn’t the only place where unjustified shootings are happening, and we should be getting just as upset and angry as we are with Ferguson.

HELP!

My dashboard won’t do the endless scroll! It’ll just stop and I looked at my settings and it’s still on. Am I going crazy or is this a problem other people have too?

I can’t stop thinking about this guy that I almost dated. We were friends for so long and a little over a year ago, I finally expressed that there were feelings and then we went on a date.
There were parts of our friendship that he would just drop off the face of the earth until I texted him or contacted him in any way. But, I could always talk to him and count on him if and I hope he knew I would have been there for him as well.
So then, after our date, it went great by the way and I’m not just saying that either. I was concerned that he’d do the thing again where I put too much effort and he just ignores it or takes a million years to respond(he did that like 3 or 4 times over the 3 years of friendship) and I told him that I was concerned about it. He legit said that I had nothing to worry about because I was important to him and he’d make the effort.
Guess what,
HE DIDN’T
So about a two months after our date I texted him and called him out on ignoring me. I ended up sending 4 long texts over two days, he only responded once by the way. When he did finally reply, he said that he was sorry and that he’s not doing that to only me, he just doesn’t think about texting/talking to people he doesn’t see every day.
WOW, thanks. It made me feel so shitty about myself, because am I really that forgettable? So I deleted him number, I deleted him off my friends on Facebook, I didn’t see him, I didn’t talk to him.
Now, for the last couple of weeks I keep thinking about him. How he’s doing, what he’s doing, what would we be doing if we were still talking? Would we have started dating? I keep getting on Facebook and I keep thinking about adding him again. He was one of my best friends and I feel like I’ve lost a huge chunk of my life because I can’t even talk to him. Would he even talk to me?
I wonder if I should add him anyway and see what plays out. Living life with no regrets and all of that jazz. And if he doesn’t add me, then whatever, because then I can finally let go of him and he’s a dick.
Everyone always says to live life to the fullest and live life with no regrets?
There was no closure so I’m sure that’s why I’m feeling like this, but I can’t help but think something good slipped through my fingers
