At least one cop has been disciplined for ordering the NYPD’s highest-ranking uniformed black officer out of his auto while the three-star chief was off-duty and parked in Queens, the Daily News has learned.
"How you can not know or recognize a chief in a department SUV with ID around his neck, I don’t know,” a police source said.
Chief Douglas Zeigler, 60, head of the Community Affairs Bureau, was in his NYPD-issued vehicle near a fire hydrant when two plainclothes cops approached on May 2, sources said.
One officer walked up on each side of the SUV at 57th Ave. and Xenia St. in Corona about 7 p.m. and told the driver to roll down the heavily tinted windows, sources said.

This just shows that no matter how you dress, how much you achieve in life, how educated you are, how much money you have, what your status is, some people will see you as just another black person that’s up to no good. 


To those who think we live a post-racial society…


I had to double check that this wasn’t from The Onion, The Daily Currant, The Freewood Post or other such satire site out there. Ugh.

Junius Stinney was the youngest person in America to be executed on death row in 1944 at age 14. He was quickly accused by the (white) police of ‘killing’ two little (white) girls with lack of evidence. His conviction and sentencing opened and closed in one day. There were no witnesses called and there was no transcript of the trial details and black people were not allowed inside the courtroom during that time.
[I always repost this because i don’t want anyone to forget about him!]

This is potentially life saving information everyone should know.

Wow, that’s awesome!

Accessibility request, anyone? I can’t read wordwalls when I can’t highlight the text to track it.

On day 12 of searching for my dog in a heavily wooded area, distraught and hopeless, I ran into a couple of hunters, They said they lost the occasional dog on a hunt but always got them back. What they told me has helped many dog and families be reunited.
—-
The dog owner(s) should take an article of clothing that has been worn at least all day, the longer the better, so the dog can pick up the scent. Bring the article of clothing to the location where the dog was last seen and leave it there. Also, if the dog has a crate and familiar toy, you can bring those too. (unless location undesirable for crate). You might also want to leave a note requesting item(s) not to be moved. 
Leave a bowl of water there too, as the dog probably hasn’t had access to any. Do not bring food as this could attract other animals that the dog might avoid. Come back the next day or check intermittently if possible. Hopefully the dog will be waiting there. I was skeptical and doubted my dog would be able to detect an article of clothing if he didn’t hear me calling his name as loud as possible for 12 days. But I returned the next day and sure enough found him sitting there! 
I hope this helps someone out there who’s missing a best friend. Good luck :)

Thank you for writing this. One of my followers wrote an image transcript already but this is still immensely helpful, so thank you.

I met my wife at a Star Trek convention. She was study abroad from France and spoke little English, and I didn’t know a lick of French. So, for the first few months of our relationship, we communicated by speaking Klingon.

Hear more tales of nerdery in this week’s Pwn Up! (via dorkly)

Okay I’m not even a Star Trek fan but that’s beautiful.

someone made a really good point in the commentary of a post once which basically boiled down to the fact that james and lily’s patronuses are complements of each other (stag / doe) as opposed to snape and lily’s (doe / doe) which just goes to show how love and obsession are not the same thing at all thank u for ur time

whoa.
