The young lady that was shot in the head by a police officer is still waiting to be interviewed by the police department
Ferguson Police claimed that 4 to 5 Black males conducted a drive by which resulted in a White woman being shot in the head. (Here, Here, Here)
(they’ve edited the articles to take out the white part and that she was killed hehehe)
Residents knew it was BS. 
Turns out Mya was shot by a police officer. The department forced surgeons to take the bullet out and took the bullet for “Ballistics”
Over a week later, she still has yet to be contacted by the department
Do not let her story go ignored

This is an update for the different funding campaigns associated with the events in Ferguson. It’s absolutely tragic, I’m so saddened to see the gap between them widen even more. 

Here are comments made by those who donated to both causes:

Michael Brown Memorial Fund:

"You guys deserve everything. I am so sorry for your lose. I can’t even imagine. There is evil in this world and you have experienced it fully. You are all so strong and I am supporting you and your people 200%. Rest in Peace Mike Brown."

"I am profoundly saddened by the loss of this young man. I offer my deepest condolences to the family and community of Michael Brown."

Support Officer Darren Wilson:

"I wholeheartedly support you and your family in these difficult circumstances you have been thrown into Officer Wilson. I believe in your innocence and pray daily for God’s peace to surround you and your family. The truth will prevail & you Sir, will walk & serve in freedom again~! My community would embrace and be honored to have an officer with your integrity! Really!! Stand strong for what you know is right~!"

"Psalm 138:8 May the Lord vindicate you and keep His eyes upon you and keep you in His perfect peace! and He will take care of that which is of great concern to you!!"

And the worst: 

"Thank you for saving me tax dollars to keep that walking turd alive."

This makes me so upset. This just displays the hatred and clear mass advocacy of institutionalized racism. This shows how the media will spin a story until it displays the complete opposite of what is actually going on.

I can pick up “To Kill a Mockingbird” and read about Harper Lee’s experiences with racism and court-proceedings and how awful life was in the southern states during the 1930s. But if Wilson somehow wins his case, then how much can we say has really changed? If we’re certain that someone is being unjustly attacked by a police officer then how can anyone possibly pretend to defend that? But of course, this fund exists to do just that. If anything, the Brown case is worse than the kind we see in Lee’s book. Unlike in her story, there are numerous witnesses. There’s a coroner’s report explaining Brown’s obvious murder. There is absolutely no doubt whatsoever that this is the unjust murder of an unarmed man and there is no evidence which can support the opposite: none. 

Eight decades on from the 1930s and how much has really changed? When middle-class white people will openly support a white man who undoubtedly deserves no support for what he has done.

You can donate to Michael Brown’s fund here

Update.
Officer is ahead.

Stop calling what’s happening in Ferguson a “riot”.

It is not a riot.

Vancouver losing the Stanley Cup a few years ago was a riot. It was angry, drunken destruction with no purpose. (And as a Canadian, it was a shameful event)

Ferguson is not a riot. It is a protest. It is an uprising. It is a civil rights revolution. The prople of Ferguson may be angry, but they have a reason to be angry, and they are not violent, and they are not hooligans, thugs or looters. They are protesting for their human rights which are currently being denied.

Look at the difference between a riot and a protest. A riot is chaos. A protest has a purpose.
