Police shoot teenage special-needs girl within 20 seconds of arriving to ‘help’

On June 3rd, 2014, the Serrano family was having difficulty with a young female family member who suffers from a mental illness and depression. Yanira Serrano-Garcia, 18, had apparently gone off of her medication and became agitated and hard to control.
“[Yanira] wanted to be normal. She wanted to stop taking her medication, and I get it. Sometimes when my feet hurt I just want to be normal. I don’t want to take pills. I get her…all we want is justice,” said a friend of Yanira’s during a community march. 
“Sadly, they mistook her for something she didn’t do, and a cop decided to get his gun out when he could have gotten out his taser, his pepper spray,” she said.
“She has special needs and we just want answers,” said Yanira’s brother, Tiny Serrano. “Who are we supposed to call now when we need help when who is supposed to help us is killing our kids?”


I feel like I reblog this kind of stuff every single day… Same story, different names. And police always use the same fucking excuses because they’re trained in how to loophole the law. It’s what they do for a fucking living.

This is heart breaking.

This news always breaks my heart because I think of my special needs brother. He generally pretty sweet. Sometimes has a temper but he’s gotten a lot better over the years. It used to be really bad and I would be in situations where I wondered if I would have to call the police. I never did because I was terrified of things like this happening. I still worry about this. Shit like this is why I can’t sleep at night.

You can’t spend the rest of your life being afraid of people rejecting you. You have to start by not rejecting yourself. You don’t deserve it.

MMFD can be hard to get through at times just because it hit so very very close to my heart. But It can be a nice thing to go through because wow, Rae is such a freaking important woman in television. 

I went to Ulta to grab stuff for my mom to get Christmas shopping started. Because the 21 Days of Deals is an excellent time to get ahead in the game. And eyyyyy BareMinerals eyeshadows were seven bucks.

So this precious makeup angel was helping me and then was asking me about my Arctic Monkeys vest and hair color and how I did it. I’m just acting like my root situation is a sartorial choice. 

I just like talking about makeup.

Let’s say I was going to be Ariel for Halloween and wanted to have red hair. Is that possible to do for like one day or two days and then wash out?

BOOST

Possibly. What color hair do you have now?

Your best bet will be the spray in variety. It will be good for one night and then probably stain your hair. Hang on. You can use a liquid dish soap and scrub it out. It has enough sulfates/salts to dissolve and rip color out. Just have a conditioning mask to apply after. Might take a couple of rinse jobs.

Most artists take their invitation to DJ for Boiler Room very seriously. Then there is Grimes. The Boiler Room hit Ibiza today for a party at influential electronic artist/DJ Richie Hawtin’s house, and Grimes was present to provide music for an hour. Instead of digging for some deep cuts and giving the people what they want, Grimes took a very different route.

Her set included Taylor Swift, Daddy Yankee, Venga Boys, and, of course, Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas is You.” She played the music off of her iPod.

That is what people want
