This is an alternate cover of Spider-Woman #1 (the other cover by Greg Land has been on this blog earlier).
I assume in this issue, Spider-Woman fights a villain who makes decoys of heroes using plasticine, but he forgot to factor in that people’s clothes aren’t bodypaint, and he messed up her head positioning.
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged.
A police officer in Kansas City, Mo. is facing internal review after he reportedly posted an inflammatory message on Facebook about the slain Ferguson, Mo. teen whose death has led to mounting chaos.
Televison station KCTV reported on Monday that Kansas City Police Department Officer Marc Catron posted a picture to his Facebook page along with this caption: “I’m sure young Michael Brown is innocent and just misunderstood. I’m sure he is a pillar of the Ferguson community.”
The photo depicted a black man with a wad of money in his mouth, pointing a gun at the camera. But the photo wasn’t of Brown at all. It was of a man in Oregon accused of murder.
Catron also reportedly posted about the violence that has erupted in Ferguson since the fatal police shooting. “Remember how white people rioted after OJ’s acquittal? Me neither,” Catron wrote, according to the television station.
"Facing internal review"? This officer needs to be fired, immediately. Someone who is clearly a racist has no business policing a community.
Notice something in common in these photos?
It’s not what you think
I gave it away in the third pic
That’s right! None of these cops are wearing badges or name tags! I wonder why… seems like it’d be important to wear those, since it’s even illegal not to in other states…
This is actually illegal in all states. A police officer must be marked as such with name and badge at all times unless their jurisdiction states otherwise (such as an undercover officer), and even when not wearing a badge, the officer must have the badge accessible at all times and must show the badge in order to make an arrest. Name tags are not required as long as a badge is available because the badge has the officer number on it.
This has really been bothering me. The police in Ferguson are breaking the law by concealing their identities. Everyone knows this, it’s been going on for ten days, and it appears that nobody is doing anything about it.
The police are clearly and systematically violating the first amendment rights of the press, and they are getting away with it. This has been happening for days, and nobody appears to be doing anything about it.
A police officer pointed a rifle at a journalist and told him to fuck off *while he was being filmed, so he’s easily identifiable by his superiors*, and that police officer still has a job.
I know that not all cops are bad (or even most cops), but there are clearly bad cops in Ferguson, and they’re acting with complete impunity. I don’t understand why those cops aren’t being taken off the scene, and why a higher (possibly federal) authority isn’t coming in to address these things.
That’s the funny thing. You’re seeing multiple acts nightly that would, on a competent police force, have consequences, repercussions. Chief of police don’t care. Mayor don’t care. Anybody who does care isn’t in a position to do anything about it. So they can play soldier and bash as many reporters into the pavement as they fuckin’ want. And you get to watch (until all the reporters are teargassed into unconsciousness or plastic-handcuffed and dragged away for some shit charge that’ll just end up being dropped later).
Anyone who thought 2nd Amendment freaks were paranoid, well, here you go. This is institutionalized violation of the Constitution in full sight of the entire world, and they’re going to get away with it.

The potatoes have escaped
anyone concerning themselves with trying to prove that michael brown shoplifted from a convenience store believes that black people should be executed extrajudicially for petty theft
Same with “Oh, but he had marijuana in his system,” and I’m hearing it from people who I KNOW have smoked weed. Smoking weed is not a capital offense. Shoplifting is not a capital offense. Being black, apparently, is.
