Ferguson Police have dogs and shotguns. The unarmed crowd is raising their hands.

For anyone not following the Mike Brown story on Twitter: a 17 year old black boy named Mike Brown, who was supposed to start college tomorrow, was shot to death in Ferguson, Missouri by police while jaywalking. He was unarmed. He was shot 9 times.

Initial media reports claimed that an 18 year old black man had been shot and killed while fleeing police after shoplifting.

People in the neighborhood, including members of Mike Brown’s family, came out of their homes and began to protest, shouting “no justice, no peace,” and keeping their hands in the air.

Media reports claimed that a violent mob quickly formed around the shooting location shouting “kill the police.”

Spread this. Tell the truth about what happened to this boy. Tell the truth about what is happening NOW. The police and the mainstream media is painting him as a criminal, and his community as a violent mob.

SPREAD THIS. Don’t let them lie.

I read this as a kid and it had a really significant effect on me and and it’s a big influence on my world view and I still think it’s the most beautiful and profound thing anyone’s ever said about beauty

Roald Dahl and Quentin Blake contributed so much to my childhood

Hey All!

SpokeModels will be riding its collective bike off into the sunset this month. After over a year of amazing events (where we got to know you!) we’ve decided to merge into the ranks of the Savannah Bicycle Campaign. This partnership will allow us to bring bigger and better events to the city of Savannah and our bicycling community. Don’t worry — everything you’ve come to love from SpokeModels will be making the move with us, from Cyclofemme rides in May to the Tweed Ride in February. Stay tuned for more details on upcoming Mechanic’s Nights at the Savannah Bicycle Campaign’s new headquarters, a Year of the Local Scavenger Hunt in August and a Seersucker Ride this September!

We’ve had a blast this past year, but it’s time to move on and up! Don’t forget to follow the @savbikecampaign on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, and sign up for their email newsletter at bicyclecampaign.org and get geared up for bicycling events in Savannah!

Unbelievably important.

Use this to combat pro-life “statistics” (aka, statistics pulled out of a random donkey’s hiney).
