(not so)tiny crush on Anna Faris’s husband, Chris Pratt (x)
Natalia Vodianova by Mario Testino for Vanity Fair, November 2014
I have mixed feelings about what’s happening with police departments all over the country right now. On one hand, I’m overjoyed that people are taking a stand against the racism, bigotry, and oppression that is being enforced by police officers and their departments, and I’m happy that corruption is being brought to light on a national scale. But on the other hand, I’m enraged that there are men and women taking advantage of the power that comes with a badge. And not just the traffic cop who goes on a power trip when they pull you over for going 5 mph over the speed limit. I’m disgusted with these fucks who are using unnecessary and deadly force on civilians; these assholes who are killing innocent men, women, and children, and gassing and pepper spraying nonviolent protesters have no business wearing a badge or being near any position of power. Does it make me not want to become a police officer anymore? Not by a long shot. Unlike them, I actually want to serve my community. But it does make me very concerned with what I’ll be associated with when I do eventually put on the badge and uniform.
Police officers are supposed to protect and serve, not oppress and intimidate.
