Announcing the talented cast of (The Winter’s Tale)! Our Short Works Festival ended VERY successfully last night, but we aren’t taking any breaks! Tonight this group will jump right into rehearsals:
Perdita/Oracle: Bethany Burnside

Cleomenes/Time/Autolycus: Robert Linder
Camillo/Antigonus: Duc Nguyen
Hermione: Tashina Richardson
Leontes/Bear: Nicholas Ross
Dion/Florizel: Chris Taylor

If you think this bear book is adorable, wait until you see how awesome the ACTUAL poster is going to be. Also I’m acting and directing this because I guess I wanna kill myself. MARK YOUR CALENDARS, THIS IS GONNA BE WORTH SEEING (because it’ll either be awesome or a trainwreck).

Officers have tanks now. They have drones. They have automatic rifles, and planes, and helicopters, and they go through military-style boot camp training. It’s a constant complaint from what remains of this country’s civil liberties caucus. Just this last June, the ACLU issued a report on how police departments now possess arsenals in need of a use. Few paid attention, as usually happens.
 
The worst part of outfitting our police officers as soldiers has been psychological. Give a man access to drones, tanks, and body armor, and he’ll reasonably think that his job isn’t simply to maintain peace, but to eradicate danger. Instead of protecting and serving, police are searching and destroying.
 
If officers are soldiers, it follows that the neighborhoods they patrol are battlefields. And if they’re working battlefields, it follows that the population is the enemy. And because of correlations, rooted in historical injustice, between crime and income and income and race, the enemy population will consist largely of people of color, and especially of black men. Throughout the country, police officers are capturing, imprisoning, and killing black males at a ridiculous clip, waging a very literal war on people like Michael Brown.

So - according to this CNN story - the police are admitting that they identified Brown as the suspect in the robbery AFTER he was dead, right?  Yet they’re claiming the alleged robbery as the impetus for the shooting?  They are aware they’re full of shit, right?

We’re watching you motherfuckers.

They need to take a fiction writing course that addresses continuity errors. Have they mentioned how they went from Brown shoplifting a candy bar to this particular robbery? ‘Cause they were pretty certain about that candy bar. 

The story changes every hour or so it seems. Now CNN is reporting that the officer that shot Brown had no idea of the robbery at the time of the murder, and stopped him because he was in the road, “blocking traffic”.
