What fucks me up about the Darren Wilson fundraiser is that he hasn’t been charged with a crime. He doesn’t have to hire a lawyer. He’s on paid leave, so he’s not losing wages. This is not covering his expenses, because he doesn’t have any additional expenses. This is a reward. He’s getting a $250,000 reward for murdering an unarmed black kid, two days away from starting college, in broad daylight.
“I wish I could just rot under this tree.
That’s my wish; to sleep, sleep, sleep.
I wish I could just rot under this tree.
That’s my wish; to be caressed by the gentle breeze and fall asleep.”—Arimura Ryutaro, リラの木 (via seabois)
