I have enjoyed reading the Raven cycle because of several reasons. But I think so far that my favorite, favorite reason is the characters. The little things that they do to one another, the little interactions and nuances that is singular to each individual and yet so similar to people that I know in real life. On top of that, it’s about a girl named Blue who has the nickname Jane which is awesome because my name is Jane and I have short blue hair! I’m a lot like Blue, and so I really enjoy reading about her and her friends!

At a deposition, Ferguson’s former police chief revealed that his staff did not keep records of incidents in which officers used force against citizens, so long as no one died; in other words, there was no way of telling how often incidents like Davis’ happened.

remember shit like this when they talk about how mike brown’s shooter had no disciplinary record
