Please don't shoot. by Lecidre Please don't shoot. by Lecidre




Being black is not a crime.









The picture is inspired by the Ferguson shooting and this powerful song, Be Free by J. Cole.




On average, there are 96 cases of a white police officer killing a black person each year between 2006 and 2012. I know racism has always been a problem in the United States of America, but all the crazy things happening in Ferguson right now are so horrible and sickening. I can't believe some white people think it's okay to mistreat another human being just because of his different skin color.


If someone seems like a suspect, the police should follow the due process of law and let him be judged properly in a court. Shooting an unarmed person and trying to cover everything up by creating lies after lies is downright low and disgusting. And it's disheartening to see those peaceful protesters' effort being thwarted by the police and some gangsters.







Take care, people in Ferguson. Be safe.

It's unfortunate of what happened down there, but I'm not taking a side until I have clear evidence of who's right.

That's good. The mixed opinions about the autopsy could be very confusing. It seems everyone is telling a different story. 

Hopefully such tragedy never happens again.

Same here and if things can't be settled which if the town falls into Anarchy which I hope it doesn't, then Martial Law will have to be unfortunately brought in.

My answer for the two sides asking me to pick a side: www.youtube.com/watch?v=017fbu…

Lol, that reaction. One of the best scenes in that movie. :lol:

It seems things in Ferguson have quieted down a little bit these days. Or maybe people have stopped caring. The news channels are busy reporting other stuff now and the Ferguson incident is no longer the main focus.

*claps*

The lack of Ferguson art on DA is appalling to me.

Thank you for making this.

Thanks for the comment. :hug:

I guess most people show their concerns about the Ferguson shooting on other social media sites like twitter or tumblr. I've seen some pics on tumblr and they're pretty amazing.

This is sad. I really hope they get justice for Michael brown jr.

Agreed. Everyone's life matters. No one deserves to die like that.
