All I can say is…wow. Not a good feeling.
Officer Darren Wilson’s gofundme has more money donated than Michael Brown’s memorial fund. White privilege at it’s finest.
I don’t usually post about stuff like this, but please share this in hopes of more people donating to Michael Brown’s family. You can find the gofundme page: here.
are you goddamn kidding me?
that fuck currently has $143,540 and Michael Brown’s family has $127,997…
I can’t even…
the officer who fired the most shots (and reloaded) and killed amadou diallo in ‘99 lives two houses down from my mom
He went around the neighborhood (after he murdered Diallo with his two coworkers) collecting money so he could “afford to get a lawyer” for the case
He collected thousands on thousands of dollars (maybe even more) from people whom his wife and friends had solicited to get support after this “tragic event” (tragic for who????)
instead he got a lawyer supplied to him by the NYPD for free and used the money collected by everyone he knew to :
- put an addition on his house and completely remodel it
-buy himself a giant sailboat
- send both of his kids to both a private high school and a private college
- get a new hummer and several classic cars
- swimming pool
let me add that he comfortably lives on this giant ass eyesore of a house on the corner of our block and receives no shit for what he did at all. comfy and retired with a nice chunky pension and all the material possessions he could ask for.
What do these cops need this support money for? Tell me.
