I’m not like other guys.  I don’t compare myself to other guys.

The Ferguson Police Department STILL has not released a police report from the shooting of Michael Brown. They did release a FULL police report AND video AND stills from what they ADMIT is an unrelated incident in which the shooting victim, Michael Brown, THEY say, was implicated in a theft at a convenience store earlier in the day on the day police killed him. They released ALL of that, but NO police report, still to this day, from the shooting of Michael Brown. They still have also not released the autopsy results from the county autopsy of Michael Brown. Today, the Ferguson Police Department turned down a request from NBC News to please see the personnel file of the officer who’s been named as the shooter of Michael Brown. The ONLY thing they would release is his name, the day he was hired, and his salary. They would not release any other details from his police file. The one substantive piece of information that the Ferguson Police Department DID decide to release about the officer implicated in the shooting, the ONE piece of information they HAVE decided to release, was THIS video that they released today, showing the officer in question receiving a COMMENDATION from the City Council for good police work.

hey, just an fyi, the creator of five nights at freddy’s is extremely anti choice and even made a pro life video game called The Desolate Hope that’s also on steam.

if you want to play five nights, please torrent it. don’t give him any money.

I don’t know the creator’s views on abortion but I never noticed anything that blatantly screamed abortion to me. I decided to look around.

A google search turned up the quote This game is dedicated to the children who never saw childhood.”  Here is what I uncovered about that.

  • There are a lot of contexts one can take that in. Children who died for other reasons, children who were forced to take care of themselves or grow up too quickly because of their home environment, etc.
  • The quote was removed from the game to avoid being interpreted as a political statement and skewing the message of the game.
  • Scott himself stated that he did not intend it as a political message and that the themes of the game are meant to exist on their own, even though some of the game’s themes can also be applied to the abortion debate. (A character who is “not natural” or “wasn’t supposed to exist”.)

Again, I don’t know what this creator’s  political views are but I’m not down for assuming or name calling.  ”Some person on tumblr said so" isn’t evidence. If somebody provides actual evidence then maybe I’ll change my tune but I don’t think this big sci-fi adventure is aiming to change any minds about abortion and I don’t have any reason to assume that money he makes from his games are going toward any kind of anti-choice organizations.

So by all means, play the damn games. He’ll probably buy food or something with your payment.

Going on right now in Ferguson: Police are raiding a church that has been stocked with medical supplies, food, and tear gas recovery kits for community members engaging in protests. This cannot be allowed to continue.

Stand up, speak out.

Violence continues to erupt in Ferguson, Mo., more than a week after the fatal shooting of unarmed teen Michael Brown by policeman Darren Wilson. The 18-year-old’s family demands justice be brought to their son with the arrest of the six-year veteran officer. Protesters have clashed with authorities as control over security shifted from local police to St. Louis County officers to the Missouri State Highway Patrol. Gov. Jay Nixon has since called in the Missouri National Guard. And the Brown family continues to prepare for the teenager’s funeral arrangements amid completion of three separate autopsies.
