POLICE ARE USING TEARGAS AND WATER CANNONS AGAINST PEACEFUL, UNARMED PROTESTERS.

THIS IS WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO US. I’M FUCKING ANGRY THAT I CAN ONLY SIT HERE AND UPDATE SHIT.

PLEASE REBLOG AND SIGNAL BOOST.

This was the photo right before the break up of the protest.

We are unarmed. We have only our umbrellas.

They started it first. How fucking inhumane.

A child was hit by teargas. A Child.

A monk in the protest literally prayed and begged the police to stop. 

Dozens of people are injured from the water cannon.

My friends are freaking there. And I’ve lost contact with them. The last text I sent was to go to our campus because it is safer there.

I’m so angry. Dear international followers, please acknowledge and please boost this post.

I’m sorry for swear words but I just can’t tolerate this shit anymore. I’m ashamed that I can only sit here, translating and donating. But I’m going to keep updating the situation nonetheless.

If you are unaware, the Thai people are protesting against monarchy and asking for abolishment or reform to their government so that they can have a true democracy.

This began because the Future Forward Party, a political group pushing for democratic reform, was forcefully disbanded by the unjust court.

Currently, two protesters face life imprisonment and >50 more have been arrested since the start of these protests.

Please show support to the group of students organizing, เยาวชนปลดแอก, (Free Youth) and spread the word.

Cop’s name is Philip Brailsford

He shot Shaver 5 times in the chest when Shaver, while crawling on all fours towards the officers, reached to pull his shorts up

Shaver was unarmed during the encounter, crying, and desperately begging for his life. In the official police report, Brailsford claimed he believed Shaver was crawling towards the police to put himself in a better position to shoot them, despite Shaver initially begging to be handcuffed while he was laying down to lower the risks of being shot. It was only after police ordered him to crawl towards them that Shaver began crawling

The dustcover of the rifle Brailsford used to kill Shaver was engraved with the words “You’re Fucked”. The judge decided this was inadmissible as evidence, despite prosecutors arguing it was a clear indicator of his mindset at the time of the shooting

Brailsford was found not guilty on the charge of second degree murder two years after the incident, and reinstated to the Mesa Police Department. This reinstatement was for the sole purpose of allowing Brailsford to apply for work-related disability (PTSD), at which point he was granted early retirement from the force with a 2.5k a month pension

Every. Single. Cop. Is. A. Bastard. They are either murderers or they are enablers. There is no such thing as a good, or even a decent, cop
