SWAT Team Fires Semi-Automatic Weapons At Unarmed Teenage Girl

Members of a SWAT team opened fire on an unarmed teenage girl this week when police officers outside of Washington, DC attempted to serve an early morning search warrant.

Myasia Hughley, 18, is recovering from flesh wounds following Thursday morning’s events in District Heights, Maryland. She was asleep in her bedroom at her family house when 15 FBI SWAT agents stormed the house with guns drawn.

“I’m shouting ‘Nobody is armed, nobody has a gun!’ and then all of a sudden I heard ‘She’s got a gun!’ and they just opened fire,” Emory Hughley, Myasia’s father, tells local station WJLA News.

Myasia didn’t have a gun, though, nor did any other member of the Hughley household. The authorities allegedly saw something, and in their minds had enough reason to unleash a barrage of bullets at the girl. Mr. Hughley tells Washington’s NBC News4 that he saw one agent even fire off around seven shots himself using a semi-automatic weapon.

“They almost hit my daughter, man,” he adds to WJLA. If I hadn’t told her to go back in her room they probably would have shot her.

“I’ve got eight holes in my wall. One bullet went past my head, almost hit me, ricocheted off my brick wall and some of the shrap metal hit my little daughter in the back of her neck, all for nothing.”

The Hughleys are now asking for answers from the FBI, but so far the authorities have stayed silent as to why they were raiding the home. Mr. Hughley says a day later that he has yet to be told why his house was visited in the early morning hours by more than a dozen heavily armed FBI agents other than they were executing a search warrant. The FBI’s Washington Field Office has deferred from answering pleas from the press to explain what the judge-approved order was for.


I’m genuinely pissed off right now!




So Thandiwe just told me that our school (well, my old school) is planning on banning afros/natural hair and weaves next year because they’re inappropriate for school.


First of all the school council and teachers that are pushing for this are white.

Now that says a lot. The racism is fucking blatant that I dont think they even realise it.

Second of all, how is our hair inappropriate?? The hair I was born with is deemed inappropriate. Im genuinely hurt by this.

In the 4 years that I was in that school I witnessed our people being harrassed about their hair. “Its too long”, “The colour is against the rules”, “The style is too fancy” but white people were free to walk around with their crazy ass hair. I was once told to tie or straighten my hair by a white teacher because she found it messy. I was equally disturbed and angered by this.

You know what, I’m actually too pissed to write any further.

Fuck that damn school

fuck all the teachers that think our hair is inappropriate

Fuck the black parents that will keep quiet, out here behaving like these white people owe you something whilst their kids are being oppressed of a BASIC RIGHT!!! FREEDOM OF CHOICE!!

And they say this is the “new South Africa”

OOOOOHHHHWOW that’s horrible. 

if you used demonoid you might wanna read this and maybe pass it around.




ok. so, maybe like half an hour ago my husband tries to open up his browser and this was the only thing that would pop up. 


that file was downloaded a while ago before we even moved when we had time warner internet.

so, he deletes the file and calls cox. he asked how/why they’re allowed to come into our computers and invade our privacy. she just gave a number for him to call with a reference number.  

he calls the number and after a few minutes the internet is back up. he asks again how they’re allowed to just come into our computers and scan our files looking for pirated shit and this guy on the other end of the phone says that shit is hitting the fan with demonoid getting shut down. i guess marvel got in on it and is going after anyone that has any of their shit via the fucking fbi. 
the fucking fbi called cox and told them to kill our internet until we get that file off our computer. like, just wow wtf.

then he tells a friend of his about it and that guy has a friend who had the actual fbi show up at his house with a warrant.

so i guess, just heads up. if you’ve got anything marvel that you’ve used a p2p site, specially demonoid, get rid of that shit or back it up.

i’ve been using demonoid for nearly 4 years now and have thousands of songs, but i’ve never once downloaded a movie or tv show so idk if i’m in the clear or not. who knows if record companies are gonna get in on it too.  

and now i’m guessing the rumor that demonoid was shut down by anonymous is bullshit. 

Well shit. I’ve only ever downloaded music and digital books, and some anime, but I know Alex has downloaded movies, specifically and recently the last two batman movies. Reblogging for him to see.

fucking ruh roh

Sending out a signal boost. TW: hospitals, neglect, awful medical practices



Hello internet, my name is Traci and I have a story to tell you about Inland Valley Medical Center in Wildomar, California. It is not a very happy story, but I hope to get as much of a signal boost as possible to spread the knowledge of their unsafe, inhumane, and completely unacceptable practices.

Rest of the story here…

I rarely ask people to reblog for signal boost, but this is a very close friend of mine and even if she wasn’t, what this hospital did and will continue to do is unacceptable and they need to be called on by the public, the state and anybody who will listen.

I’m not even on tumblr much lately, but this is really important and people need to know about this hospital so they can avoid it.

(Deaf relevant) Why I will never be flying United or flying into/out of Louisville ever again.





(TW for audism out the ass)

As we were leaving the NAD convention in Louisville, Kentucky, I had on the following shirt I got at the convention:

It was a very public week-long event downtown, make no bones about it. As such, the shirt very clearly identified me as deaf.

It was a very public week-long event downtown, make no bones about it. As such, the shirt very clearly identified me as deaf.

While I was going through the TSA, some of them started laughing in my direction. I thought it might’ve been someone behind me, but I found out otherwise.

They went through my bag (for no reason), and found a couple bags of candy I brought. I was told I wasn’t allowed to fly with that (wtf? I’ve flown with food before — these were even sealed still because I brought them right in the airport). I was then asked if I would like to donate the candy “To the USO”. Since I know the airport there has an Air National Guard base, and I figured it would go to the soldiers, I (annoyed) said sure, why not? 

The guards, as I was getting scanned, started eating thecandy they just told me was for the soldiers. In front of me, still laughing at me (very clearly now). One of them asked why they were laughing, and one of them came up to me, pointed at my shirt, laughed at me and said, “Fucking deafie”. The Louisville TSA called me a “fucking deafie” and laughed at me because I was deaf, and they expected wouldn’t say anything back (or wouldn’t hear them). Make no bones about it — she was facing me and I read her lips. There was no mistake. I would later find out that they had called at least 4 other individuals the same thing. 

My teammates had to hold me back from going after them, but we moved on. After I had calmed down and we had sat down, somerude as fuck lady got up and started filming us signing. She called us “Dumb apes” with a “gesture language” and laughed at us. When we asked her to stop, she said“I was getting a picture of the plane behind you! (the plane wasn’t even at the gate yet)”and“You’re dumb deafies anyway so no one would believe you”.

At this point I was blind in rage, but I let it go. It wasn’t the end of it though. This, however, is why I’m never returning to Louisville, ever again. 

When we got back to Rochester, we found out that United had lost all of our luggage. It ended up in Kansas. The United reps had put a phone number up and said to call it. I responded, “I’m deaf, I can’t use a phone!” I was told, “Buy a TTY then talk to us!” When I shouted back that TTYs had gone obsolete years ago for texting, I was told,“I guess you’re shit outta luck then, huh?” .

But I guess because I’m disabled, I have too many rights, huh?

I smela lawsuit pending against United and I’m utterly disgusted at some hearing people. 

This is really fucking disgusting. Please make this go viral and repost. Is there anything we can do? Can we make a petition and demand that United fires all of these employees and send a formal apology?

They owe more than an apology. They should be fired. This is heinous and so very wrong. What the fuck is wrong with people?
