Notice something in common in these photos?

It’s not what you think

I gave it away in the third pic

That’s right! None of these cops are wearing badges or name tags! I wonder why… seems like it’d be important to wear those, since it’s even illegal not to in other states…

This is actually illegal in all states. A police officer must be marked as such with name and badge at all times unless their jurisdiction states otherwise (such as an undercover officer), and even when not wearing a badge, the officer must have the badge accessible at all times and must show the badge in order to make an arrest. Name tags are not required as long as a badge is available because the badge has the officer number on it.

This has really been bothering me. The police in Ferguson are breaking the law by concealing their identities. Everyone knows this, it’s been going on for ten days, and it appears that nobody is doing anything about it.

The police are clearly and systematically violating the first amendment rights of the press, and they are getting away with it. This has been happening for days, and nobody appears to be doing anything about it.

A police officer pointed a rifle at a journalist and told him to fuck off *while he was being filmed, so he’s easily identifiable by his superiors*, and that police officer still has a job.

I know that not all cops are bad (or even most cops), but there are clearly bad cops in Ferguson, and they’re acting with complete impunity. I don’t understand why those cops aren’t being taken off the scene, and why a higher (possibly federal) authority isn’t coming in to address these things.

The Althing is the Icelandic Parliament, founded in 930 AD and featured as a central plot point in the 13th-century “Njals Saga,” which featured events that took place in the period between 960 and 1020 AD. The saga concerns the family of Njal Thorgeirsson and the feuds which embroiled Iceland in this period as a consequence of both honor and fate; there are several instances of prophetic dreams which affect the choices of characters, sometimes leading to their deaths. The Althing serves as a venue for a tense legal showdown between two rival families, in which Njal, a renowned lawyer, proves his strength of argument and skills in legal matters. 
In the relevant passages, it is shown that the justice system of the Althing was based on knowledge of a concrete legal code and appeals to a jury, much as many legal systems function today; considering this saga takes place some 1000 years before the present, this is a considerable development of personal rights and legality compared to many other contemporary systems.
However, in the course of the saga and despite his many good qualities and nobility of character, Njal is killed, and the cycle of feuds continues until almost all of both families are dead. This only ends when both sides agree to abide by the rule of law as set down by the Althing. It is believed that the author intended this to serve as an example; writing it in post-Norse Christian, 13th-century Iceland, firmly under the rule of the Norwegian kings, he may have intended it to serve as a moral tale illustrating the anarchic and bloodthirsty old ways.

This here is nothing short of amazing

Now this is solidarity. 

I’m so speechless that’s amazing wow

The cops are REALLY going to look like even bigger assholes if they tear gas people now. Like, now instead of just a state Senator, a bunch of people who came all the way from India to protest can just be like “Yeah, when are you gonna gas us again?”
