"York county Sheriff Diggs said he considers alleged militarization a ‘nonexistent problem’ and a ‘manufactured issue.’" 

"Alleged militarization?" What else would you call arming local police forces with military arms surpluses? The only manufactured issue is your conviction that you could ever find practical uses for your new weapons. 

Diggs said the military tank his department paid for in $6,000 recovered from drug deals is “just a tool, just like the guns we wear every day.” 

Last time I checked, tanks and guns differed in size, use, maneuvering, cost, and practicality. And so what they paid for the tank in money recovered from drug deals? That money could’ve gone towards improving rehabilitation centers to slow the cycle of repeat drug offenses so that we can stop wasting even more money on drug busts.

"Asked about the appearance of police during the Ferguson protests, Diggs said ‘how would you expect the police to show up to a looting riot situation?’ and said officers wouldn’t arrive in jeans and ball caps."

Ferguson only escalated into a “looting riot situation” after police started to teargas peaceful protesters! And to describe Ferguson as merely a “looting riot situation” not only ignores its racial context but also misrepresents the nature and purpose of the protests themselves.

This is happening in my town. Here. Now.

i love that fall has a feeling, it’s not even the taste of smoke and barbecue in the air or the smell of wet dead leaves, it’s like a palpable feeling against your skin. it reminds me of renaissance festivals and cider barns and long highway drives to lawrence with the trees all sunset-shaded on the side of the road and cold night bonfires and guys i really fucking love autumn
