A federal judge has ruled that police officers in Ferguson violated the Constitution by requiring protesters to keep moving rather than stand still during demonstrations following the death of Michael Brown.
The judge issued a preliminary injunction in response to a lawsuit brought against St. Louis County and the superintendent of the Missouri Highway Patrol by Mustafa Abdullah, an ACLU staffer.

I want to hug you. Nobody ever asks me about Stelena. :( Of course I will tell you my opinion about Stelena.
I use to have a good beat on TVD. I understand JP and her thinking, whether it was DE or SE. Caroline Dries on the other hand? No clue what that woman is doing. TVD is on a layover to Crazyville.
Here’s where I am at with the show. Who Elena ends up with is secondary to me right now. I want them to fix Elena. Vampire Elena is just unlikable. I cannot stand her regardless of whether she’s with Stefan or Damon. At the core of TVD was the idea that humanity was of value. The reason Stefan & Damon fell in love with Elena was because she represented the best of humanity. They missed their own humanity and she reminded them that it was important to hold onto whatever humanity they had left. That’s the core of the show. Now? Now TVD seems to embrace this idea that vampirism is good, humanity isn’t valued and Elena? Elena has turned the worst version of herself.
So more than anything I want the Elena of S1-S3. I believe there’s a way for her to be that Elena as a vampire, but it doesn’t seem like the show is all that concerned with fixing her character.
If Elena remains the same and Elena remains a vampire, Delena is endgame. That’s just where it is with me. And you know what? I’m okay with that. This isn’t about winning to me. This is about true love. Selfless love. The person Elena is right now? I don’t want her with Stefan, she doesn’t deserve Stefan.
If Elena finds herself again or becomes human again, it’s either a Stelena endgame or neither brother ends up with her and she lives her life as a human. I think it’s very possible that Damon or Stefan would wipe her memories of them. OR, she ends up with Stefan in some romantic sense.
In either event, the way I look at Stelena is this. When Elena was Elena, her true self, the character we all loved and the woman Damon & Stefan fell in love with…her choice was Stefan. Stefan was Elena’s last, precious and most important human choice. But then she died in 3x23. That 4x1 scene wasn’t a reunion, it was a goodbye. It was Human Elena dying right before our eyes as she transitioned to a vampire. She used her last dying breath to tell Stefan that she loved him, that she would always love him and that he was the best choice she’s ever made. Then, the minute Elena transitioned to a vampire, her next scene is immediately with Damon. That’s not an accident. Human Elena died, but her love was always Stefan. No matter how TVD ends, Stelena wins. We know forever and always when Elena was her truest self, her true love was Stefan. Is it a tragic and bittersweet ending? Of course, but the best love stories are always like that. It’s what makes them EPIC.
Great analysis….and 100% agree.
So let’s get this straight: when male soldiers stand on a runway, Fox News says it is ‘disrespectful’ and ‘insensitive’ for President Obama — the soldiers’ commander in chief — to hold a caffeinated beverage while saluting them. But when a female pilot flies a combat mission in a US-led war, it’s apparently fine to speak about her as if she is nothing but a pair of breasts, and to suggest that despite her history-making status as the first female Emirati fighter pilot, she must not be able to park her aircraft. The segment must be seen to be believed.
People magazine tried to delete this real quick, but I just wanted to let y’all know that no matter what, we’ll always be maids to some folks.
Not surprising….folks are especially hateful when things are done well and we succeed. The only thing left is the spite, envy and petty. I think it is ingrained in the DNA for some. Not going to steal our shine at all…because Viola is kickin’ ass in her LEAD role with an amazing supporting cast to boot. Shondaland rocks!
STRONG BLACK WOMAN ACTUALLY BEING PORTRAYED AS SEXUAL INSTEAD OF “A STRONG BLACK WOMAN WHO DON’T NEED NO MAN”
YAAAAS YAAS YAAAS
If we can’t write diversity into sci-fi, then what’s the point? You don’t create new worlds to give them all the same limits of the old ones.
