But are you paying attention to what’s going on??? My heart is so heavy….. so heavy…
An attorney for the family of John Crawford III, the man fatally shot by police in an Ohio Walmart store, says surveillance video contradicts the police department’s version of events. Officers say Crawford refused to drop the pellet gun he was holding, but the video allegedly shows them gunning him down “on sight.”
Crawford, 22, was shopping at the Beavercreek, Ohio store on Aug. 5 whenpolice responded to another customer’s report that Crawford was carrying an AR-15 rifle. He was actually holding a pellet air rifle he had just picked up from a shelf in the store’s toy department.
Attorney Michael Wright says he viewed surveillance video that shows Crawford was facing away from the cops and talking to his girlfriend on the phone when police spotted him, and didn’t have the toy gun raised. Hetold WDTN Crawford probably didn’t see or hear the officers before he was shot.
"John was doing nothing wrong in Walmart, nothing more, nothing less than shopping,"Wright said, according to Reuters.

As you can see from the dates, I’m a horrible human being. Also, I need like 60k of a TW Red Dead Redemption AU.

It’s hard for Scott to draw his gaze away from the broad expanse of Derek’s bare shoulders. There’s a sheen of sweat across his skin, which only makes things worse. He can probably feel Scott’s heavy stare; probably deals with a lot of heavy stares, though Scott knows that in no way makes it acceptable.

For emilson / From dauntpairing: Derek/Scott
summary/comments: “The carnival is in town and this evening it’s especially packed.  Scott loses track of his friends in the dense crowds and while searching for them runs into Derek.  They start off searching for their friends together but as the evening wears on they get distracted by each others company.”
I really hope you like it Emilson, I had a great time drawing it!
