Sunshine shit on the floor outside her box and I don’t know why.
I just cleaned it? I mean hell it was awful even but she was more willing to use it then, than now that it’s clean?
I hope it was just an accident and she didn’t mean to.
I really need to get her a bigger box, though. I hope she won’t keep pooping outside when I do. I mean, her current box is deep enough but it’s not roomy enough, it’s barely bigger than her.

This is a story that isn’t getting the traction in the press that it should. I posted the case about Howard Morgan not long ago here.
Morgan was a veteran police officer in Chicago. He is black. He was shot 28 times by 4 white officers. 21 of those shots were administered to the back of his body. Morgan never fired a weapon, and a witness corroborated that. In fact, one of the officers took Morgan’s weapon away from him. Morgan was acquitted of aggravated discharge of a weapon in 2007.
Some key facts via this online petition
Howard Morgan’s van was crushed and destroyed without notice or cause before any forensic investigation could be done.
The State only produced 3 of the 28 bullets shot into and taken from Howard Morgan’s body, whereby the rest of the 25 bullets could have shown whether or not the police officers who shot Mr. Morgan shot him with his own gun after taking it from him.
Howard Morgan was never tested for gun residue to confirm if he even fired a weapon on the morning in question.
The State never produced the actual bullet proof vest worn by one of the officers who claimed to have allegedly taken a shot directly into the vest on the morning in question. The State only produced a replica.
Despite all this, and the fact that Morgan was earlier acquitted of firing his own weapon, Morgan was found guilty of attempted murder of the 4 white officers who shot him 28 times, with 21 of those shots having entry points on the back of his body. How does one not fire a weapon, get shot 28 times by four officers, and then be found guilty of attempted murder? It doesn’t make sense.
Morgan is set to be sentenced in April. More info here.
Since people insist on contacting to tell me “not all cops”, I’ll be reblogging old posts of the most egregious cases of police brutality. This isn’t about individual “nice” cops. This is about a systemic problem. Good cops are forced to tow the line or they will get dealt with. No one is denying that cops have a tough job. Who said they didn’t? Isn’t that what they signed up for? Don’t jump in the lion’s den and then complain about lions.
The case above is about a Black Chicago cop named Howard Morgan. Why his case didn’t gain national attention beats me. He was shot 28 times by fellow officers, and 21 of those shots came from behind. He survived somehow. One officer took his weapon away from him. Black cops are not safe either.
And note this again from atane’s original post:

The hatred of black people in this country knows no bounds.
on the one hand bronies “coming out” as a ponysexual or whatever because they think it’s just as dangerous as being gay is appropriative and homophobic as hell but on the other hand imagine some 22 year old with premature balding twisting his fedora in his greasy hands as he tearfully explains to his horrorstruck parents that he jacks off to technicolor horses
there’s a reddit thread devoted to people grumping about this very post
what the fucking hell that comment is so far out it has absolutely no relevance to this post
Huge Concerns Over New HIV Criminalization Law in Uganda
So, President Yoweri Museveni has just signed “The HIV and AIDS Prevention Control Act of 2014” into law in Uganda, and it’s a discrimination doozie. Here’s what it says:
- HIV+ people can get 10 years in prison plus a fine for “intentional transmission of HIV”
- Or, they’ll get 5 years in prison for “attempted transmission of HIV”
- There will be mandatory testing in Uganda for pregnant women
- And, the government will have the ability to release a person’s HIV status to the public without their consent.
what the fuck
ah yes evangelicals plan a bright future for the world
I can’t remember who originally made this (if it’s you tell me and I’ll edit the post) but this will always be one of my favourite edits of the Ctrl Alt Delete animated series. Even after it got deleted from youtube I went hunting for it because me and my friends still quote “you’re a robot” at each other like assholes. Good times
ALSO there’s a screamer-esque noise at the end fyi
This was a thing?
Rest in pieces jfc
