Mother Jones’s Mark Follman provides new insight into the tense relationship between the black community in Ferguson, Missouri, and local law enforcement following the shooting of Michael Brown. He reports that shortly after Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed the 18-year-old on August 9, Brown’s grieving mother helped set up a makeshift memorial at the site of the shooting. Police then reportedly ran over the memorial with their cars, and at least one officer let his police dog urinate on the memorial site.

From Mother Jones:

[Missouri state Rep. Sharon Pace] purchased some tea lights for the family, and around 7 p.m. she joined Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden, and others as they placed the candles and sprinkled flowers on the ground where Brown had died. “They spelled out his initials with rose petals over the bloodstains,” Pace recalled.

By then, police had prohibited all vehicles from entering Canfield Drive except for their own. Soon the candles and flowers had been smashed, after police drove over them.

"That made people in the crowd mad," Pace said, "and it made me mad." Some residents began walking in front of police vehicles at the end of the block to prevent them from driving in.

K, so this is like super specific and stuff. But what are the names of 3 or 4 people that you hold very dear to you, and what role do they take in your life right now?



That’s okay. :) It’s an interesting question, so I like it. Hmm. Well, Kasey right now I would say is at the top of my list. He’s my boyfriend/best friend. He’s super awesome and I wouldn’t trade him for the world. Kayla is also my best friend, and I may not get to see her often, but she’s awesome, and I love her lots. Kylie is my sister. She’s always been my biggest supporter and motivator. I got lucky to have such an awesome little sister. Hmm. I don’t even know if I have a fourth person right now. I don’t have many friends anymore. I guess maybe my parents would go there? They’re great. We’ve had our rough patches, but since I’ve moved out things have gotten a lot better between us. Thank you for the interesting question. I hope this answered your question!

I love you too!!! <3 <3 <3 oh my gosh this made my day. I miss you so so much! 

Im glad I could make your day! Now come back soon so we can hang out!:(

Yeah, it kinda asked my question. For the most part, I kinda meant people that have been in your life. Not currently only, like past and present :D

Ohhh I’m sorry! Well, I mean there have been many important people in my life that have come and gone. It would be hard to pick just four that have been the most important. They have all impacted my life in such different ways. Anyone who has at some point been my best friend or more would fit here. I’m sorry I can’t give you specific names, but its hard to pick out four from all the lovely people who’ve come into my life. They have all been important, just in different ways. :)
