“A coroner’s report obtained exclusively by NBC News directly contradicts the police version of how a 22-year-old black man died in the back seat of a Louisiana police cruiser earlier this year — but still says the man, whose hands were cuffed behind his back, shot himself.
 
In a press release issued March 3, the day he died, the Louisiana State Police said Victor White III apparently shot himself in an Iberia Parish police car. According to the police statement, White had his hands cuffed behind his back when he shot himself in the back.
 
But according to the full final report of the Iberia Parish coroner, which was released nearly six months later and obtained exclusively by NBC News, White was shot in the front, not the back. The bullet entered his right chest and exited under his left armpit. White was left-handed, according to family members. According to the report, the forensic pathologist found gunshot residue in the wound, but not the sort of stippling that a close-range shot can sometimes produce. He also found abrasions on White’s face.
 
And yet, despite the contradictions – and even though White’s hands were never tested for gunpowder residue – the Iberia Parish coroner still supported the central contention of the initial police statement issued back in March. Dr. Carl Ditch ruled that White shot himself, and declared his death a suicide.”

““White knighting” is a pejorative term bigots use to undermine such actions from men who are using their voices for support, not for condemnation and misogyny. Bigots use it to claim men are supporting women in the hopes of sleeping with women. Because, apparently, that’s the only reason you would ever want to treat someone as a person.”

why

The Guinness World Records series Spotlight posted the official video showing Muhammed Rashid of Pakistan as he claims the world record for “Most Walnuts Cracked Against the Head in One Minute” at a head-crushing 150 nuts. Rashid performed the incredible feat on February 26th, 2014 at the Punjab Youth Festival where more than 30 Guinness world records have been broken in the last three years. Rashid’s record crushed the previous one which was set at only 44 walnuts.

"Now, two brothers who spent 17 months in jail before Judge Joseph Claps in June cleared them of the..."

“Now, two brothers who spent 17 months in jail before Judge Joseph Claps in June cleared them of the attempted murder are suing the city and two detectives. And the judge’s stinging rebuke of the way police handled the case against Vernell and Antwyone Green is the centerpiece of their federal lawsuit. Vernell Green, 23, and his younger brother Antwyone, 22, were charged with the January 2013 attempted murder of Jryce Starling, 17, based entirely on Starling’s flawed hospital identification of them as the gunmen who shot him in the 8500 block of South Hoyne, the suit alleges. Detectives James Scannell and Lorenzo Sandoval took a week before talking to Starling at Christ Hospital. And when they did, they showed him only two photos — mugshots of the Green brothers. “The investigation in this case, pretty much, can only be described as pathetic,” Claps said as he cleared both men at the end of a bench trial on June 16.”

i know ive reblogged this before at least twice but i decided to read through the entire thing this time and im in pain from how hard i am laughing please forgive me

If I ever stop reblogging this call EMS immediately.

I’m torn between “did a ghost do my taxes,” “are there fraggles in my body,” “who is solar system,” “cant see legs,” and is sarah palan made of crab meat.” Any one of them could be a Chip Zdarsky tweet.
