12 Beautiful Sunsets You Need To See In Person.

lifejoy21:

Sunsets are one of the most natural, and perfect beauties this world has ever had. The sunsets, all different, and always so unique, are great because they capture the individuality of each and every location in the world. In fact, you could see a sunset in one place, and see it…

William Bratton: Investigate Ryo Oyamada's Death.

Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run.  Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph.  The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp. 

On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture.  I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive.  But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency.  Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up. 

Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case.  *Edit*  This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police.  Please advise, it is highly disturbing. 

And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST

jspark3000 I will share this every single day at least 3 times a day because this is disgusting and we need the NYPD to pay for what happened. I am absolutely sick and tired of their recklessness and lack of sensitivity on every front. 

PEOPLE , PLEASE SHARE THIS AND SIGN THE PETITION! R.I.P Ryo Oyamada :(

Is about as rare as a diamond
And about as expensive
As time
No wonder people
Loose lives
When they tell it. ”
