Ferguson Police: Kicks out media and limits protestors to a “First Amendment Area”image

funny, i thought the WHOLE COUNTRY was a first amendment area. silly me. 

Funny that when they do this I only hear about it on tumblr, but when they try to limit guns and the second amendment it literally becomes a congressional uproar.

Check out this article on the First Amendment issues at Ferguson, including a “free speech zone/alternative speech zone” (turns out major news sources are reporting on it, and several journalists have been arrested while attempting to do so).

I’d also like to do a quick fact check:*

Reverse Google image search this photo, and almost every result is for “The Bundy Standoff.” Here’s an article on this very different issue, a years-long, recently escalated land battle in Nevada:

*The only point I’m trying to make here is that while this picture sums up the kind of problems being dealt with in Missouri right now, it is not an actual photo from Ferguson.

me: yes i speak that language
me: no not that part

THIS IS A PUPPY IT’S NOT EVEN A FULL-GROWN DOG AND IT UNDERSTANDS “NO” IT IS NOT EVEN A YEAR OLD AND YOU’RE TELLING ME TEENAGE BOYS AND MEN CAN’T UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT OF “NO.” THAT IS BULLSHIT.

guess we can’t be calling men dogs as an insult anymore

This dog might know that “no” means “no,” but since it’s a trick, it’s expecting the treat eventually. So “no” actually means “wait, not yet.”

How ‘bout we just enjoy the cute puppy? Which probably doesn’t need to be used as an example of proper/improper human behavior?
