This is really interesting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhJKyK6VqDI. This white guy, a known double murder suspect, aggressively charges at a cop with his hands in his pocket yelling "Shoot me! Shoot me!". This goes on for a good bit. The cop never shoots him. They end up arresting him instead.

Compare that to what happened to 12 year old Tamir Rice, playing by himself at a park with a toy gun. The cops drive up and shoot him instantly.

Or John Crawford, talking on his phone at WalMart holding an air rifle he picked up from the shelves, shot instantly when cops arrived on the scene: http://www.theguardian.com/world/video/2014/sep/25/ohio-shooting-walmart-video

I dream of a gaming world free of windows!
Any game that's available for SteamOS works on other Linux distros too, and the focus on Steam Machines has been a boon for Linux gamers.

 "I am aware that there are many who wince at a distinction between property and persons—who hold both sacrosanct. My views are not so rigid. A life is sacred.

"I want you and Fox News to get out of  #Baltimore  City because you are not here reporting about the boarded up homes and the homeless people under MLK. You're not reporting about the poverty levels up and down North Avenue. ... But you're here for the black riots that happen. ... you're not here for the death of #FreddieGray ."

First they commit to raising their minimum hourly wage, and now zero deforestation. What's going on with McDonald's? Whatever it is, I like it.
