Someone set Mike Brown’s Memorial on fire in the middle of the Night
Residents are rebuilding another memorial.
FERGUSON • One of two Michael Brown memorials burned overnight, though it’s not clear how.
Memorial items near a post along the street burned. However, a larger memorial in the middle of Canfield Drive, marking the spot where Brown died, is several feet away and was not damaged by fire.
For weeks, burning candles have been part of the memorials near the shooting site on Canfield Drive, but it was unclear if the fire at the roadside memorial was set or an accident. One photo showed an empty, overturned votive candle next to the burn site.
Some residents of the area were upset, claiming the fire was set by someone in the pre-dawn hours early Tuesday and that they smelled gasoline in the aftermath.
Many on Tuesday morning had gathered on Canfield Drive, which police had closed. Some were rebuilding the memorial with a blanket and a new collection of teddy bears and other stuffed animals next to the soot-stained pole.

if the higurashi fandom is so accepting then why is it that i, mangagamer,
I’m aware a post was made for this before quite a while back BUT if you’re not too keen on downloading the Higurashi visual novels you can find the entire play through of it on youtube RIGHT HERE
(but if you do want to download it, go to this page!)
Start reading this amazing series!! (which is also 100% better than its anime adaptation)
"Don’t keep it to yourself, talk to somebody." - Ryukishi07
Despite its recognition for being violent, Higurashi—-all in all—-is a story about overcoming depression, putting your faith in others and fighting against fate. Believe me, the visual novel conveys this far better than the anime.
Need extra encouragement? Go check out these posts!:
“Higurashi no Naku Koro ni takes place during June 1983 in a fictional rural village called Hinamizawa (based on the village of Shirakawa,Gifu, a World Heritage Site) which has a population of approximately 2,000. The main character, Keiichi Maebara, moves to Hinamizawa and befriends his new classmates Rena Ryugu, Mion Sonozaki, Rika Furude, and Satoko Houjou. Keiichi joins their after-school club activities, which consist mostly of card and board games (and punishment games for the loser – usually him). Hinamizawa appears to be a normal, peaceful, rural village to Keiichi. However, the tranquility abruptly ends after the annual Watanagashi Festival, a celebration to commemorate and give thanks to the local god, Oyashiro. Keiichi learns that every year for the past four years, one person has been murdered and another has gone missing on the evening of the Watanagashi Festival. Keiichi himself soon becomes drawn into the strange events surrounding the Watanagashi Festival and Oyashiro. In each story arc, he or one of his friends becomes paranoid, and a crime is committed. Usually, the crime involves the murder of one of their own friends. While it seems impossible to tell their delusions apart from the mystery of Hinamizawa, slowly the truth is revealed.”
don’t let anyone tell u that u should stop ranting about the MG sprites bc ‘nothing can be done’
don’t be made to feel that u need to come out with something positive bc you’ve been ‘whining too much’
'ooh the higurashi fandom complains too much'
we are dissatisfied
we are rightfully dissatisfied
and rightfully pissed off that the series we love so much is being provided w shit anatomically flawed oversexualized art by some trash hentai artist. that the series we love is getting sold off w the image of a h-game by some shitty localization group.
the reason chie is angry is bc she saw the other sprites tbh
and the biggest problem is, this whole sprite thing is going to make people take higurashi less seriously than they already do now. the generalization is going to go from “ins*ne murder lolis lolol yandere usoda XD” to “SEXY ins*ne murder lolis” and i am ANGRY. i am angry. this is not the happiness i wished for
it genuinely baffles me that men don’t want women in positions of power because “they’re slaves to their hormones/emotions” and yet one of the first lines of defence when it comes to rape cases tends to be “it’s hardly his fault look at what she was wearing how could we expect him to control himself”Gee, it’s almost as if misogyny isn’t based in logic.
