Remembering Hispanic/Latino Victims of Murder/Police Brutality In America
Mark Salazar, 22 (Oklahoma): Killed on August 25, 2014 By Oklahoma City Sergeant Ryan Stark, Who Murdered Salazar After He Allegedly Killed Stark’s K-9 Agent, Kye, Who Police Gave A Full-Honor Funeral, While The Town Celebrated The Hispanic Man’s Death
OKLAHOMA CITY – A case that grabbed the attention of Oklahomans across the state is now back in the spotlight.
On Aug. 25, Sgt. Ryan Stark and Stark’s K-9 police dog, Kye, were involved in a high-speed chase.
Authorities say 22-year-old Mark Salazar led officers on a chase through Moore, Norman and ended along I-35 in Goldsby.
After crashing his car, officers say Salazar tried to run away but was caught by Kye.
At that point, police say Salazar repeatedly stabbed Kye before Sgt. Stark arrived.
“The canine officer made his way to the suspect’s location to pull the canine off the suspect and noticed the suspect armed with a knife and had been actively stabbing the canine,” said Capt. Dexter Nelson, with the Oklahoma City Police Department.
That’s when Stark opened fire and killed Salazar.
The next day, the K-9 officer died as a result of the stabbing.
Now, the case is back in the spotlight with the release of the autopsy by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Oklahoma.
According to the report, Salazar was shot six times, four of those in the back.
Salazar’s death was ruled a homicide by the medical examiner, which means another human caused his death.
The McClain County District Attorney will determine if the manner of death was criminal in nature.

The Salazar family attorney believes the shooting was not justified.
“He’s not a punk. He’s not a thug. He doesn’t have some extensive criminal background. Yes, he has a job.” said Noble McIntyre, the Salazar family’s attorney.
According to McIntyre, there are a number of things the police department got wrong the night Salazar was killed.
He says Salazar was suspected of stealing a car.
However, McIntyre says the car belonged to Salazar.
After the incident, police said Salazar was stabbing the dog when he was shot.
“We know the officer was in close proximity to the suspect when the suspect was stabbing the dog, which places the officer in great danger of the suspect,” said Capt. Nelson on Aug. 25.
The medical examiner’s report told a different story.
According to the report, the medical examiner investigator wrote the suspect was running away, an initial determination allegedly formulated when the investigator was out at the scene.
“Mark had been shot in the back multiple times from a distance. Not while he was on the ground wrestling with a dog, but as he was attempting to flee,” McIntyre said. “There was a larger concern about the dog than there was about the human life.”
In a surprising twist, the medical examiner’s office changed its mind on the idea that Salazar was running away.
In an email to the chief of police, the medical examiner said, “The gunshot wounds on the back of this deceased individual all have a clearly steep angle, downward trajectory and are highly unlikely to have been discharged while this man was running away from a person who was shooting.”
The police chief is expecting a change to the autopsy report and feels it is justified.

People with a uterus will get about 500 periods in their lifetime. Meaning that you’ll be on your period for a total of around 2500 days. With a loss of about 1440 ounces of blood. Which is approximately how much blood there is in 9 adult human bodies. That, my friend, is some very badass stuff.

Imagine if Breaking Bad was set in Canada or the UK or Australia. Walt discovers he has lung cancer, is promptly treated at no cost and discharged with no financial burden apart from $20 in subsidised prescriptions. The end.

hmm. it’s almost as if Breaking Bad might have been trying to say something. Who knows, though

So let me tell you about the shittiest parent on the motherfucking planet.

I work at a grocery store and this man comes in with his 11 year old son. He buys a pack a cigarettes and a two cases of beer. The son was holding a two dollar drawing pad and placed it on the belt and I guess the dad didn’t notice it at first but when I was about to scan the pad he asked where’d it have come from and turned towards the kid and asked “Did you put that shit up there?”. He told me to put it back and then told his 11 year old child that he “ain’t paying for that gay ass notebook.”.  So I looked at the kid, who was close to tears and saying how he ran out of paper at home and my heart broke. So I gave the pad to him, for free, and told the dad I would take care of it. I gave the kid some tokens for a game outside and said I would look forward to buying some of his drawings and paintings when he’s all famous. He kids face was so priceless and I thought everything was good. But then, about 10 ten minutes after giving the kid his notebook, I walked outside and saw this. The drawing pad all ripped up and tossed on the pavement. I could only imagine what happened in the parking lot, but I know that that poor kid heart is fucking ripped apart, just like this pad.

I’m fucking horrified that there are parents like this, who, just because it’s not masculine or gender specificthey won’t let their children follow their true passions or explore interests that lead to their happiness. Even more so, I’m horrified that parents don’t care about the fine arts anymore because it doesn’t have job security. Since when did it ever matter to a child if their passion makes them money or not? Parenting is about supporting whatever makes your child happy. Have some fucking consideration for your child’s wants not your homophobic and anti-art ideals. 

this fucking broke my heart

Anybody else remember this episode? In it, a female villain called Femme Fatale is stealing millions of dollars in Susan B. Anthony coins. Naturally, the Powerpuff Girls go to stop her. She then convinces them that men are all horrible because female superheroes aren’t as well known as male superheroes, even asking Blossom to name some to where her only answer is Wonder Woman.

They start acting bitter, refusing to do chores when the Professor asks and even telling the Mayor to save the town himself. Ms. Bellum and Ms. Keane talk to the girls and basically explain that being mean to guys won’t do anything and that isn’t the kind of message feminists should put out.

They proceed to beat up Femme Fatale while giving her a history lesson about Susan B. Anthony, the story where she voted and was found guilty because women couldn’t vote back then, but when the judge wanted to let her off easily because she was a woman, she forced them to take her to jail. The girls handle her and the lesson is that misandry will not stop misogny and we all should just respect each other.

And it fell on Tumblr’s deaf ears.

To the point where many among the sort of person depicted in this episode point out that Lauren Faust later regretted writing the episode. What they conveniently leave out is the fact that it was because of all the death threats she received from that sort of person.

disabledgirlism:

it’s pretty common for people discussing rape culture within feminist discourse to conveniently leave out disabled girls, but this is just a casual reminder that disabled women are far more likely to be sexually assaulted, abused or raped than able-bodied women. on top of that, 50% of deaf girls and 54% of deaf boys have been sexually abused or assaulted. so please stop leaving us out of your discussion about rape culture.

Today my hometown was struck by a disgusting hardship.

A woman this afternoon was found by a neighbor, bleeding and naked. She was attacked in her home because she was gay. Two or more men broke into her home through the basement and proceeded to tag her basement. They found the homeowner, who is an open lesbian, and stabbed, assaulted, and carved “dyke” into her chest. They attempted to burn her house to the ground, but the gas only sparked. Somehow, this woman (who remains anonymous until she decides to come out on her own time) was able to escape. She was found naked, bound with zip ties, and bloody. She is still alive and in the hospital. A candle light vigil was held in her name tonight, where more than 500 people from Lincoln and surrounding cities and states joined to talk about the hate and to pay homage to the victim.

A recovery fund has been set up to help her cover medical bills and anything she may need. That link can be found here, along with a link from the original news story.

Crying.


Why doesn’t this get a full day of news coverage and nationwide outrage?

I know someone who lives just blocks away with her partner. They are terrified. It’s sickening.

To the anon who claimed mocking a T-shirt in support of Joe Paterno is a hate crime: No. THIS is a hate crime.

Absolutely, utterly horrifying.

Why the FUCK isn’t this on the news. I just watched the news for like two hours, no mention of this. What the fuck.

Signal boost

Can we talk about how Hairspray is a story where a not-conventionally-attractive girl gets the hot guy in the end without having to Become “Pretty.” Because we need more stories like that.

It’s also story about breaking down the barriers of racism which we also need more of.

And it’s about nice hair and cheesy dance moves, more things we need more of

It’s a movie where John Travolta plays a chic, which we need more of

No. We don’t need more of men in roles which should have gone to plus size women.

Actually, the role was written as a man playing a woman because it’s a pantomime technique so it’s not like the movie purposely discriminated, It was literally just written that way and it’s probably one of my favourite comedic techniques.

Actually, the role was written as a man playing a woman because in the original Hairspray movie the role was played by Divine, a radical and influential plus-size drag queen. It is in honor of that original casting and in Divine’s memory that more recent stage and movie adaptations of Hairspray have continued to cast Mrs. Turnblad as a man in drag.
