Medical Examiner In Zimmerman Trial Sues For $100M, Claims Prosecution Threw Case

In a bombshell allegation, Florida medical examiner Dr. Shiping Bao (pictured) claims that Florida state prosecutors were biased against Trayvon Martin and purposely threw the case, and he is suing the state for $100 million, reports WFTV.com.

According to Bao, the medical examiner, state attorney’s office, and Sanford Police Department all felt that Martin “got what he deserved.” Bao also claims that he received the strong, though subtle, message not to speak on certain things:

“He was in essence told to zip his lips. ‘Shut up. Don’t say those things,’” said Bao’s legal counsel, legendary Attorney Willie Gary.

Bao’s allegations come swiftly on the heels of him being fired from his position as associate medical examiner.

Volusia County released a letter on Tuesday, stating that Bao was fired last week. Spokesman Dave Byron declined to give a reason for Bao’s termination, citing “county standard personnel practices,” reports CBS News.

you go medical examiner Bao, you go!

When we live in a world where you can access free content of naked consenting women in less than 5 seconds, why are people still invading the privacy of non-consenting women for nudes?

Hint: It has something to do with people feeling entitled to making any woman their personal porn, even if it violates or humiliates her in the process.

I was speaking to a friend in Gaza and he told me that his little cousin is writing her name all over her body with her markers, just in case she gets blown up and no one can identify her. She is 11 years old. 11. The psychological pain and trauma the Palestinian children go through is absolutely repulsive.

This image is very well known, but I wanna talk about Inuyasha’s words.

Inuyasha and Kikyo have found each other because they were lonely. Loneliness helped them to approach in a good way: Kikyo was alone in her task, Inuyasha was a stray and no one wanted him. So they began “to date”, but they were steadily followed by their pain and sorrow. 

I love Kikyo as character, but I also think that she hadn’t a perfect behavior with Inuyasha. He says that he wanted to become a human and live together with her, but even his soul would be changed? I don’t think so. He would have changed just the wrap, without strange ears, human colored eyes and hair, no superhuman powers. Next to her, Inuyasha would be aged like a common human, and yet  always an half demon inside..

And not the one of Kagome, but an half demon that carries rancor towards everyone and everything, unhappy, inadequate, angry with the world, and still alone. Kikyo wouldn’t have changed his soul, but only his appearence. She helped him a lot to feel less alone, but she couldn’t heal the wounds of his soul.

Kikyo is an interesting character, but I don’t understand so much her approach with Inuyasha. Maybe she was too cold outside, but surely she has loved him. 

But I ask myself how much she was willing to love Inuyasha as an half demon? Between these two, there was still fear and  just  a little confidence, but not as much to trust each other. 

This is why I think that Inuyasha is more happier with Kagome, because she has done more for him, she has tore the pain away from his heart and she has made him human inside.

What do you think about? 

To inuyasha-support-group and Inuyasha’s blog all around tumblr. 

There are some really good points here newghoul6277; let’s take a look into what Ale’s take into their relationship is:

Kikyo and Inuyasha loved each other. That much is pretty much obvious. But they also didn’t trust each other as much as Inuyasha trusts Kagome and his other friends later in the series. I’ve said this a lot in my own personal liveblogs as I watch the series - Inuyasha and Kikyo didn’t trust each other enough, making it super easy for Naraku to make them betray each other. Inuyasha didn’t trust Kikyo because he grew up training himself to not trust anyone because then they hurt you, and Kikyo didn’t trust Inuyasha because she had been taught her entire life that demons were after the jewel and half-demons were spawns from hell.

Did that stop them from loving each other? No. I do believe they loved each other, I just don’t think they trusted one another enough. It’s possible to love someone but not to trust them a whole lot, and this is a perfect example.

Because if they hadn’t trusted each other the betrayal wouldn’t have been so hard on them, but if they had trusted each other ENOUGH they would’ve known something was up and tried to do something.

You’re right in the fact that Kikyo would’ve just changed his appearance and not heal his wounds and that he’d still be a half-demon at heart, but I don’t agree with you when you say that Kagome made him a human inside.

From what I understand and can get from the manga and anime both, Inuyasha’s character development depends on the fact that he’s a half-demon - he isn’t wanted by anyone, everyone hates him, no one will ever want to be friends with him or be with him, etc., etc. Kagome changes that.

Kagome shows him that it is possible for someone to want to be with him. Kagome shows him that he can make friends as a half-demon. Most importantly, Kagome shows him that it’s possible to love someone with him not changing how he looks or his appearance and ancestry.

In my eyes, the entire point of Inuyasha’s character development is to go from hating who he is to accepting it. Kagome did heal his wounds, that’s true, but she didn’t make him human. She healed him, she didn’t change who he is because she loves him regardless of his gruffness and lack of tact - and there’s proof of this, whether you accept that these quotes happened in canon or not.

"To be honest, I like you just the way you are. There’s nothing wrong will staying just the way you are."

"I love you. I love you as a half-demon."

Kagome heals him, helps him make friends, but does not make his soul human. She makes him love himself regardless of being a half-demon.

Anyways, these are my own thoughts! I hope you enjoy my opinion on this and how it differs from yours; this is just how my brain works to comprehend things.

All of what Ale said.  Yes.  Good.

Police: Man who fired officer's gun at city hall was high on mushrooms, had 'superhuman strength'

chescaleigh:

sonofbaldwin:

Get into this.

An 18-year-old white dudebro high on mushrooms breaks into a government building acting wild as fuck.

Dudebro goes BUCK on several police officers.

During his all-out bucktitude, he manages to break out of handcuffs and grab a police officer’s gun.

HE FIRES OFF A SHOT from this gun.

A gang of the keystone cops finally subdue him and take his precious ofay ass off to be booked.

NOW.

Let’s imagine how this shit would have gone down if dudebro was black:

"Police officers shot and killed a black man acting erratically in a government building yesterday. They fired a total of 1,169 times. They said he made furtive movements and that his keys looked like a gun. An autopsy revealed that the man was on crack, heroin, and the marijuana, and his blood alcohol was 856 times the legal limit. Police say he has a criminal record dating back to 1956, before even his parents were born."

This is implicit and institutionalized white supremacy in action.

Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here. 

HEY FUN FACT: pole dancing is known as something strippers do because strippers invented it. And that’s okay! It’s okay to have respect for strippers and the hard work they put into what they do! Let’s stop trying to take the stripper part out of pole dancing so upperclass white girls can do it without being ~stigmatized~ because god forbid women be sexual.

What the hell?

It is now 3 weeks since Michael Brown was murdered by Ferguson PD Officer Darren Wilson. Officer Darren Wilson still has not been arrested, charged, or even brought to prison or court for the murder of Michael Brown.
