We need to make that bottom photo iconic.
Like give it a filter and spread it around.
That bottom photo is going to be in our children’s history books, mark my words. It is iconic already
Hedy Epstein, a 90-year-old Holocaust survivor was arrested on Monday during unrest in Ferguson Epstein, who aided Allied forces in the Nuremberg trials, was placed under arrest “for failing to disperse.” 8 others were also arrested.
"I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager. I didn’t think I would have to do it when I was ninety," Epstein told The Nation during her arrest. “We need to stand up today so that people won’t have to do this when they’re ninety.” Epstein is currently an activist and a vocal supporter of the Free Gaza Movement.
I hope her arresting officers feel REEEEAL good about their life choices that led up to this moment, because arresting a holocaust survivor for using her first amendment rights is some next-level bullshittery.
These cops should be ashamed. Our entire country should be ashamed.

Why are they following him in the first place? He’s made no secret of being liberal.
Well he’s made no secret of not being a huge racist a-hole and of generally being a decent person, so I’m really not sure why these people thought that he might be on the side of a racist murderer.
I like this guy more each time he posts.
American medicine is the best in the world when it comes to providing high-tech care. If you have an esoteric disease, you want to be in the United States. God forbid you have Ebola, our academic medical centers are second to none. But if you have run-of-the-mill chronic diseases like congestive heart failure or diabetes, the system is not designed to find you the best possible care. And that’s what has to change.

On Aug. 9th, 2014 a Ferguson, Missouri police officer racially profiled and fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown as the teen stood with his hands in the air. His family and community members are calling it an execution. Racially-motivated police violence has no place in law enforcement and represents the systemic police abuse against Black communities in Ferguson and Missouri at large. Enough is enough. We need widespread public pressure to ensure justice for Michael’s family and to prevent this type of indefensible violence in the future. Please join me in calling on federal and city officials to investigate, prosecute, and fire all officers involved by clicking here.
