Was hoping this was going to be about antifa at Berkeley but, surprise! More corrupt cops instead. =(

To a certain degree I expect this. White supremacists and far-right activists generally have good relationships with police, and those groups have been trying to “infiltrate” law enforcement for years. But this is imbalanced even beyond what I expected. The neo-Nazis seem to be able to have their complaints treated Read more

Remember all the crying and bitching Charlottesville’s PD did about how the white supremacists were all “from the outside” and “not an accurate portrayal of the city” and whatnot? Mmmmmmmhmm

I just wanna point out that the police arrested counter-protesters for wearing masks at a freaking KKK rally. I’m sure no one wearing a hood was arrested.

They really honestly did. They never even bothered to examine Aubrey. It seems like the family put more effort into investigating her disappearance than the cops did. Total disservice.

There’s no reason to believe that she had changed radically since coming out as trans, so it’s a bit hard to believe that the earlier photos and name were relevant. If I go missing, there’s no reason to put out my high school photo-so why is it a good idea to do it here? And why is it “reasonable” to misgender her in Read more

They aren’t obligated to use her birth name, and from a functional point of view it would also be counterproductive-the people who might know anything about her disappearance are not going to know her birth name.

Ma’am, I am so sorry for your pain. Your granddaughter deserves more, far more. So do you, the rest of her family, and every single member of her community. I am not religious, but I will ask my mama to pray for your family. Nobody says a prayer like my mama. I hope peace will be with you.
