My name is Jennilee. Call me Jennifer and you die. I am thirty-something, trying very hard to graduate from college, and opinionated like you wouldn't believe. I'm un-apologetically liberal and pagan. I have no problems with other people's beliefs until they try to shove them down my throat. I'm also un-apologetically childfree. (google it if you don't know what it means)

Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run. Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph. The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp.
On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture. I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive. But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency. Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up.
Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case. *Edit* This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police. Please advise, it is highly disturbing.
And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.
On February 21st, 2013, Ryo Oyamada was struck and killed by a police cruiser while crossing the street. NYPD claimed that the cruiser’s lights and sirens were on before the collision, but multiple eyewitnesses stated otherwise, that the lights and sirens were only turned on afterwards, and that the cruiser was speeding in excess of 70 mph down a residential street. None of these eyewitnesses were interviewed for the police report.

Please note: “everyone who works retail, admin, or labor” is pretty much everyone. I can’t remember the last time I worked somewhere without “security” cameras that monitored employees.
Hell, I work as a programmer and we have cams all over our dept. No excuses. None.
Hey everyone: for those of you who are wondering, the Westboro Baptist Church and gonna bandwagon on he death of Micheal Brown in order to promote even more hateful rhetoric. Please don’t let them do this. If you can, send the people of Ferguson support. If not, then signal boost this as a warning.
aw, hell naw.
I had a feeling this might happen. Sick. Just sick & wrong.
Naughty Ranger is naughty. #naughtydog #lab #labrador #blacklab #sneakydog #dogshaming

Have you ever played a video game where you have to sleep to recover? They only let you do it if everything is safe. Otherwise they won’t let you sleep. You’ll get a message, saying “You cannot sleep now, there are monsters nearby.”
Now, remember the last time you just couldn’t get to sleep?
Don’t you fuckin do this to me
WHY. WOULD YOU DO THIS. I guess I’m sleeping with an axe in my bed again tonight.
ALL HAIL BAG-HEAD CAT! #HAIL
New comic about NAMES! I’ve mentioned name stuff before in a previous “do and don’t” comic, but I fleshed the idea out a little further because its a pet peeve of mine. But a bigger problem that affects a lot more people in different more scaring ways
I don’t understand why this is huge deal. If someone tells you what their name is/what they want to be called, you use that name. Easy. People are stupid sometimes.

i will be the next Khaleesi
I want one!
A friend of mine and I are going to perform a protective energies ritual for the protestors tonight. We’ll be starting roughly 9pm Central time. I am casting a circle and will update this just before I begin. Anyone willing to lend energy is welcome to do so. We are calling Artemis, Athena, and We’ll ask Sekmet to join as well, if willing.
Anyway, if you want to lend energy that would be appreciated.
EDIT: Starting to cast circle in 5 mins or so. 9:20pm Central time. You don’t need to be Pagan to send energy. As long as it’s protective and positive we will receive.
I almost forgot my briefcase!
it contains important lab results
Important DOGUMENTS! *dying*
Hey all, there’s been some community discussion starting up about getting magic-users and pagans together to direct energy/do workings/pray for the situation in Ferguson. If you don’t know what’s happening, here’s a good summary of what’s going on,…
I’m trying to send protective energies to the protestors. I encourage anyone who can to join me in doing so. Action + magical power is better than no assistance at all.
