back home there’s a famous inn renowned for it’s ridiculously kitschy “themed” rooms that haven’t changed since like the 1960’s-70’s & i’ve always wanted to stay in one really bad (esp that last one like hello, giant round blue bed??? amazin)

The Madonna Inn is a magical place that time forgot. We stayed in the “Caveman Room.” There were lots of animal skins and I nearly busted my ass slipping on the wet, “cave” floor in the bathroom. 

I highly recommend it if you’re every driving up the PCH.

We checked it out (online) when we were up that way on July 4th. The rooms are not only huge, they are expensive as fuck too.

And when you think “Inn” you think kinda crappy right? The outside is top-notch.

I feel like a lot of non-black POC tend to act like they have some kind of exclusive, vaguely pat-on-the-back “in-card” when it comes to blackness, simply because they’re not white.

And I kind of get it, because non-black POC are targets of racialised violence too, and yeah, it fucking hurts,…

As an attorney, I just want to add that if an officer says that filming/photography is interfering with law enforcement’s job, he legally can tell you to stop. I STRONGLY suggest that if you hear an officer say that you ARE interfering with law enforcement (phrasing that is the same/VERY close to that is important) that you stop filming. Otherwise, you can be arrested for obstruction of justice.

Further more, please do not goad the police officer during your filming. Stay silent, aside from the suggested talking points above.

i am taking virtually everything you say as gold lately, being an attorney and me not knowing nearly as much about the law during these troubling times.

Sure. This is ‘public knowledge’ since it is your 1st Amendment right; however it is incredibly important to know how to navigate that right without exacerbating the situation.

Moreover, know that you CAN publicly film. But if the cop says you are interfering with law enforcement (HOW you would be by silently filming, I don’t know, but if they say it they mean it) then you need to stop filming.

In regards to SECRETLY filming police officers, that matter is not settled across all jurisdictions, so unless you know that your state allows you to secretly film officers, DON’T. The 1st Amendment only covers public filming in a public sphere (like the side of the road) not private/secret tapings. 

And of course, if you are arrested, request to speak with an attorney and say NOTHING ELSE. You would be AMAZED at the case studies that I have read where people think that after they say they want an attorney post-Miranda Rights, they just start TALKING “It wasn’t me, I don’t deserve this, fuck this shit” I mean literally SAY NOTHING. In a situation like that where your civil rights are being absolutely infringed on, I know it is VERY hard in the heat of the moment but it is VERY easy to be goaded by an officer into getting you to talk FURTHER and then before you know it, you’ve built a case against yourself and you didn’t even know it.

I don’t care if Mike Brown was going to college soon. This should not matter. We should not have to prove Mike Brown was worthy of living. We should not have to account for the ways in which he is suitably respectable. We should not have to prove that his body did not deserve to be riddled with bullets. His community should not have to silence their anger so they won’t be accused of rioting, so they won’t become targets too.
