    Tina Fontaine, 15, was reported missing on Aug. 9. Her body was found in the Red River near the Alexander Docks at about 1:30 p.m., more than a week after she was reported missing. Fontaine, of Sagkeeng First Nation, had only been in Winnipeg for a month before her disappearance. “She’s a petite little thing — just turned 15, barely in the city for a little over a month,” O’Donovan said. “And she’s definitely been exploited and taken advantage of and murdered.” 

    Fontaine was in the care of a Child and Family Services agency when she went missing, according to police. She had run away from her foster home before, including once in July of this year. Police said she was found wrapped in a bag, in “a condition she couldn’t have put herself in.”

    “She’s a child. This is a child that has been murdered … Society should be horrified,” O’Donovan said. “That’s why we’re asking for people to come forward. And that’s why we’re asking for people to help us and to come forward with anything they know about this child.” Anyone with information can contact police at 204-986-6508 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-8477.

    Seriously, it surprises me that people still don’t get that “whitewashing” doesn’t just mean “taking a character of color and turning them white,” but also applies to “focusing disproportionately on the stories of white people,” “glossing over or altering…

    TUESDAY 8/19: Ferguson PD presented a table full of fabricated evidence at this morning’s press conference - allegedly seized from protestors and stopped cars. The Colt 45 Molotov with a white bandana was the crowning glory, turns out you can’t even buy glass 40’s in Missouri. Stay classy, FPD

    I seriously think white supremacist are coming in the area to frame the protesters, but it could just be the cops

She has a tattoo of a traditional style female attached to a record player on her left and and below it a shoe with haircutter tools in it. She has a Friday the 13th knife tattoo on her right hand in between her thumb and index finger.

    Ew. Ew, ew, ew. And especially gross, given how it was Bill Clinton who proudly instituted NAFTA, which had a huge hand in destroying Mexican agricultural economy and making conditions worsen for all these children—to USA’s benefit! Give it a month or five and we’ll have to deal with her making stops at taco shops and using corny guacamole metaphors to show Mexican Americans how much she ‘gets’ us. 

    Clear message, indeed. And it is not missed by us.

    White dude in St. Louis named Kevin Miner was wanted for burglary.

    He eluded police officers until they conducted a search of a resident’s home and found him.

    He attacked both officers, breaking one cop’s hand. The media even alludes to Miner being forced to “fight back” against the police because of how he was being apprehended!

    Miraculously, the cops managed not to punch him in the face repeatedly, put him in a chokehold, or shoot him six times including once in the face and once in the head.

    He, in fact, barely had a scratch on him.

    Imagine that.

    The next time someone says to you:

    "BUT IT’S NOT ABOUT RACE (Patent Pending)!"

    Throw your tea dead in their face Dominique Deveraux-style and pump on away from them like Naomi Campbell.

    Marissa Alexander, who fired warning shot at husband attacking her, likely won’t see prison after Florida changes ‘Stand Your Ground’ law

    (ABC NEWS) - Thirty-three-year-old Marissa Alexander of Florida is “grateful” that she will likely not have to serve 20 years in prison after reportedly firing a warning shot at her allegedly abusive husband, whom she thought was about to attack her.

    Alexander stood trial for firing a warning shot against her husband on Aug. 1, 2010.

    Alexander testified that her then-husband, Rico Gray Sr., questioned her fidelity and the paternity of her 1-week-old child. She claimed that he broke through a bathroom door that she had locked and grabbed her by the neck. She said she tried to push past him but he shoved her into the door, prompting a struggle.

    Afterwards, Alexander claimed that she ran to the garage and tried to leave but was unable to open the garage door, so she retrieved a gun, which she legally owned.

    Once inside, she claimed, her husband saw the gun and charged at her “in a rage” saying, “I’ll kill you.” She said she raised the gun and fired a warning shot into the air to scare him off, rather than hurt him.

    The jury rejected Alexander’s claims of self-defense, and said the “Stand Your Ground” law didn’t apply to her because she had not been harmed in the struggle.

    Alexander’s sentence sparked outrage across the nation, with many claiming racial bias, particularly in the wake of George Zimmerman’s not-guilty verdict, which happened around the same time.

    Her lawyer appealed, and won her a new trial late last year.

    Florida Governor Rick Scott signed new guidelines into law Friday, inspired by Alexander’s case, ABC News reported. The law allows Florida residents who threaten to use a gun or who fire a warning shot to protect themselves the chance to avoid criminal prosecution.

    "We are of course grateful for the governor’s actions," read a statement from Alexander’s legal team.

    oh thank god

    Finally some good news

    Yaaaaay!

    Good. Anything else would be a travesty.

    Sending this woman to prison would be an utter disgrace.

    I’m so happy for her! This headline is real misleading tho. Like she has been in at least a holding cell if not an actual penitentiary this whole damn time. Does that not count as seeing jail time?

    my dude just brought this up today, so glad about this!!!! Praying and sending her love. My God.
