I don’t have dyslexia myself, but in the event any of my followers do, I thought I’d share. Maybe it will help people.
A half-dozen Kern County sheriff’s deputies were across the street beating a man with clubs and kicking him, she said. So she whipped out her mobile phone and began to video the episode, announcing to the officers what she was doing.
For about eight minutes, Ms. Melendez said, the man screamed and cried for help. Then he went silent, she said, making only choking sounds.
Finally, having hogtied him, a number of witnesses said, two officers picked up the man and dropped him, twice. One deputy nudged the man with his foot. When he did not respond, they began CPR.
“He was like a piece of meat,” said Ms. Melendez, 53, who was visiting her son at the hospital after he was injured in a car accident. “We were telling them: ‘He’s dead. You guys already killed him.’ ”
Responding to a call, deputies had arrived at the scene to find the man, David Sal Silva, a 33-year-old father of four, on the pavement. Their attempts to rouse him resulted in the altercation, the authorities said. Mr. Silva was pronounced dead less than an hour later at Kern Medical Center.
the cops who murdered this guy are not only still drawing a paycheck, but they’re still on duty.
Okay Tumblr, I’ve never been one to ask for help, but this is my cat, my baby, Zidane. Currently he’s being hospitalized for bladder stone/bladder crystallization, by some of my close friends who are taking care of him. As much as I wish I could be there with him, I can’t. Because of life events that happened within the span of the first week in February, (Me getting kicked out of my father’s home, my mother being arrested, etc) I’m stuck in Florida living with my girlfriend Ai and her mother until me and Ai can get back home to San Antonio, Texas (We are hoping to go back in June). Zidane was supposed to come with me to Florida, but the night we had to leave he became extremely ill, again because of the crystallization that started forming in his bladder, and I had to leave him behind with friends Maddy , Nick, and Jason, otherwise Zidane would have never made it through the night, let alone the road trip. Jason was generous to cover the first vet bill, $400 for which I still owe him and am forever grateful. However he, nor can I, or any of us, even think to cover these next round of vet bills. This is why I’m coming to you, Tumblr, for help.
We need to raise $1,800. This will cover his hospitalization, urine/blood tests, and a procedure that will unblock his urethral canal/get rid of crystals building in his bladder. With the tests being done, the vets are hoping to figure out why it keeps happening, and hope to keep this crystallization from happening again for a very long time with the procedure.
This is one of my children; I don’t want to lose him before I even get to see him again. Just letting him go the night I left my home city was painful enough. He’s a really loving cat with a personality like that I’ve never seen before. He will talk to you if you talk to him, if you’re crying he will become very concerned and meow at you until you let him into your lap so he can pitter-patter you and purr until you’re smiling again. He likes to burry himself into piles of bras because he’s a little pervert, and loves to sleep in the bed with you at night. He never bites or growls…Zidane is just a sweetheart and I love him. I’ve had him through some of the toughest years of my life, when I had to deal with trouble at home, Zidane was there to comfort me. I want to do everything I can to help him.
I don’t want everything my friends have done for him to have gone to waste either. Please Tumblr, anything you can donate would be greatly appreciated from all of us, and if you can’t donate, a reblog is equally appreciated to spread the word.

…i didn’t cry drawing it…
:( I teared up, Cute. This is really lovely.
Hi guys! I wanted to inform you about this great thing that is happening!
These smart fellows have devised a way to create cups, straws, mixers, etc that can detect common date rape drugs. This is an amazing idea and it needs funding! The campaign ends in 35 hours and they are a little short on funding. Please, signal boost this or even give a dollar if you can, it’s a great cause and something that will really change the world!
26 hours, people, let’s go!
Tumblr, please spread this like WILDFIRE. This teenager has been wrongly suspected of being one of the Boston bombers. He’s scared for his family.
Please pass it on.
Signal boost or GTFO. NOW.
i wanna talk about something that i’m sure nobody here is about to take kindly to. it’s something that i’ve actively told myself i won’t even talk about on tumblr because tumblr’s typical idea of “social justice” is an ass-backward venomous screaming match between children. but…
This is what’s happening on Venezuela right now. Please reblog to spread the word. We had a fraud on the presidential elections. People are getting killed for defending their rights. I know what happened in Boston is extremely horrible too and I am really sorry about that but maybe you can help us too. Please guys reblog this so the whole world can know the truth!
I am putting this on various tags so more people will see it. I know this has nothing to do with Owl City or One Direction or whatever but please we NEED your help
Please spread this!
My aunt lives in Venezuela omg fuck
