Summary of the night in Ferguson:

At about 9pm on August 17th, 2014, shots were heard and police claimed to have Molotov cocktails thrown at them. One woman was taken away by ambulance for being grazed by a bullet.

Police response was a brief warning and then relentless volleys of tear gas. As it was 3 hours before curfew, many children were still in the street and were caught in the gassing, along with many other peaceful protesters.

Police continued gassing and threatening reporters. A couple reporters were arrested briefly by Captain Ron Johnson. Tensions culminated with protesters marching on the command centre, where they were yet again gassed out.

During this time, the autopsy for Michael Brown was finally released. He was shot at least 6 times, mostly along his right arm, and shot twice in the head.

As of 12:35AM in Ferguson, activity appears to be dying down. Media is currently waiting for a presser.

Anonymous: but elizabeth midford is disgusting

Okay anon, how is she disgusting?

For pretty much acting like any girl her age during the Victorian Era? For basically being forced to marry into the Phantomhive family [even though Ciel is her cousin] but loving him unconditionally anyways? 

Or are you basing your disgust over one episode where she throws his ring in a fit? [but she apologizes for it and always apologizes to Ciel for acting up] She hasn’t even acted bratty since then, and I assume you haven’t read the manga because she gets A+ Character development and pretty much fucks the patriarch.

Elizabeth Midford is one of the only people who truly knows and cares about Ciel. She has the purest of hearts and that’s amazing in the life that she’s expected to marry into. She was trained by her mother for this purpose and she’s a genuis at the swords.

Honestly, I don’t know why people find happy go lucky girls like Elizabeth Midford to be disgusting because they are exactly the people in the anime/manga hiding a dark secret and are hiding the most sadness. Elizabeth lost her family too, and she lost Ciel once and will probably lose him again.

How horrifying is that? 

For someone her age to go through loss over and over again. When all she wants is for Ciel to be protected and safe and happy.

If anyone doesn’t deserve each other’s love, it’s Ciel. I’m sorry, I know he tries at least-but there are times where he just doesn’t deserve her love. 

Ciel is far more of a disgusting person [granted, he was forced to be this way in a way and he has a lot of mental illness too I believe], Ciel uses people to get what he wants, Elizabeth fights for what she thinks is right and she doesn’t need people to protect her like they thought.

Elizabeth is the strongest female I’ve seen in a series.

This fandom just can’t handle a queen like Elizabeth, and it’s a shame.

crazy fangirls tend to just hate female characters anyway no matter how awesome they are. they’re irrational and stupid reasons.

Captain Johnson Breaks Promise, Uses Tear Gas And Military Vehicles Against Ferguson Protesters

August 17th, 2014

Captain Johnson broke a direct promise he made on Saturday when officers and SWAT under his control broke up the night’s demonstration using military-like vehicles and tear gas while enforcing a midnight curfew.

Johnson insisted at a press conference earlier in the day that those methods would not be used.

We won’t enforce it with trucks, we won’t enforce it with tear gas. We’ll communicate. We’ll talk about, you know what, it’s time to go home,” Johnson told a boisterous crowd.

But shortly after midnight, when the curfew went into effect, riot police equipped with rifles, shields and five armored vehicles, shot tear gas and smoke grenades to disperse defying protesters chanting “No Justice, No Curfew”.

It was initially unclear whether tear gas or smoke was volleyed. Police spokesmen on the ground told reporters there that the anti-riot agent they were using was merely smoke.

But several reporters tweeted pictures of the canisters they picked off the ground which showed that riot CS smoke was being used.

On Saturday, August 10th, Carly Ann Hefflin took her own life.

She was 24 years old, a mother, a sister, a daughter, a granddaughter, and a friend to many. She made a huge positive impact on the lives of everyone around her, and her depression-spurred suicide took even her closest friends and family by surprise. Her death is a tragedy.

Her family is still mourning, and her two siblings, Alex and Amanda, want to memorialize their sister with matching tattoos, but they can’t afford to get them.

Please reblog this post to spread the word and help her siblings by donating here to their cause.

Thank you all for your thoughts, your prayers, and your support.

So where the Killer 7 fans at?

Pencils, inks, colors all by me.

"We expected a professional pitch from Kojima, an outline and a treatment of what he had in mind with a cursory budget; perhaps a couple assistants to run a slide show. Instead Kojima walked in the room without so much as a piece of paper. He went to the chalk board in the room and simply wrote the words SILENT HILL. Then he added an ‘S’ to make SILENT HILLS. Dramatically, he drew two vertical lines through the ‘S’, SILENT HILL$. He turned around and grinned. We greenlit the project that day for $200 million."
