While the entire world has taken an interest in just how St. Louis residents are ending up shot in the street, there's one group who does not seem all that interested: the police. According to Riverfront Times , St. Louis County resident Mya Aaten-White was leaving a Mike Brown rally on Aug. 12, when all of a sudden:
I&#039;m sure there&#039;s a perfectly innocent explanation for it. Hmmm, how about ... that time back in high school when she shared a doobie, and that made her delusional and imagining bullets in her head and stuff?
He makes up for it by selling ideas to Carl Hiaasen.
Ooooh, a RUBBER bullet! Why didn&#039;t you say so, of course the cops wouldn&#039;t investigate those, those things are practically Nerf&trade;!
Now, this, this is classic.
No. Rubber bullets are much bigger than regular bullets, and (I&#039;m pretty sure) cannot even partly penetrate bone. One could, certainly, give you big-league concussion/brain damage, but there&#039;s a relative density thing that likely prohibits &quot;lodging&quot;.
The way you get &quot;lodging&quot; is by being a little bit out of range of a regular lead/steel bullet.
That bullet&#039;s probably at the bottom of the Muddy Mo by now.
Wow, the RFT (normally a contact mag) doing actual journalism, and seemingly very well. I have not seen anything about the confiscated bullet in the Post-Dispatch or on the local TV stations. Thanks for the info, Wonket.
I&#039;m sure there&#039;s a perfectly reasonable explanation for why the police confiscated the bullet, but haven&#039;t filed a report. (I hope this comes back to bite them, hard.)
Ladies and gentlemen, the equal protection of the law, for all to see.
Are we satisfied it was other people yet?
Un-be-fuckin-lievable. Are we now at the point where cops are so evil and corrupt that they can do whatever they want and just blame a few black guys as the default? I would like to believe that there are a few people left in the system with the courage to right the sinking ship, but I&#039;m really starting to lose faith in humanity.
Hopefully it wasn&#039;t police property, or she&#039;ll be charged with damaging it.
