What fucks me up about the Darren Wilson fundraiser is that he hasn’t been charged with a crime. He doesn’t have to hire a lawyer. He’s on paid leave, so he’s not losing wages. This is not covering his expenses, because he doesn’t have any additional expenses. This is a reward. He’s getting a $250,000 reward for murdering an unarmed black kid, two days away from starting college, in broad daylight.

Been thinking about this all day:
Reasonable people can disagree on things, and certainly, we can learn a lot from spirited discussion. But if your opinion is basically, “This wouldn’t really be an issue if the people affected would just shut up about it,” well, God, Jed. I don’t even want to know you.
I am regularly asking myself “what would Mrs. Landingham have to say about this?”
