It’s crazy how two very similar situations take place in different parts of the country yet they are so different. The aftermath of Trayvon Martin and the aftermath of Michael Brown are nothing of similarity. It’s weird how George Zimmerman is told what to do and what not to do while speaking to an operator yet he still does what he wants anyway and after he kills Martin, he’s taken to jail. Darren Wilson, a 28 year old cop, which means he probably has been in for maybe 10 years at most, knows the rules of when you should draw your weapon and when not to, yet he kills unarmed Brown anyway, he’s still walking among society. Which has many people outraged. The police may very well be trying to protect their own in the latter incident but the longer the police protect their own, the longer the aftermath will continue. Another similarity is that after the killings, the lifestyles of both men came into the spotlight possibly as a way to show members of society that it’s the lifestyle that made them targets not their skin but those attempts fail. To note, in the Zimmerman case, his background also came in to play, yet with Wilson, nothing, other than he’s a cop, is known about him. Also in the Zimmerman & Martin case, there was physical contact between the two of them while there was no contact between Brown and Wilson. Had the store clerk that was robbed been the one to shoot, there may have been an aftermath but not to this degree. The ball is in the court of the police department in Missouri and it seems as though they may end up dropping the ball in the end of it all.

OKINAWA, JAPAN - Charges of sexual harassment have been brought against the base obstacle course this week, after a female Marine from 7th Communications Battalion reported that “she felt extremely uncomfortable doing physical training on or around the object.”
The Marine, who wishes to remain anonymous, claims the O-course behaved in an inappropriate manner during a unit physical training session.
“I have never felt so ashamed and violated in my life. The course was all over my lady parts, then, it [the o-course] made me do terrible things,” she said.
Soon after the female Marine’s meritorious promotion to Corporal, her Battalion commander released a statement.
“I currently have an investigation underway, but right now, we are concerned for this Marine’s welfare,” said Lieutenant Colonel Nicholas J. Lourian. “I will order a Battalion safety stand down as soon as we have some answers so that this incident doesn’t happen again.”
This isn’t the first case at Camp Hansen. Some female Marines have complained about the abbreviation for portable radio component (PRC), which is pronounced “prick” by many male Marines. Others say they’ve endured a barrage of sexual harassment at the enlisted club, with male Marines “inappropriately buying them drinks.”
“Even at the PX I’m getting treated like a piece of meat,” said one female Marine who wished to remain anonymous. “Sometimes when I get in line, there will be a couple of men ahead, saying that I can cut them and go ahead, trying to act nice. I may be a woman but I have every right to stand in the PX line just like the men.”
Most male Marines were unsure of how to take the news.
“This is bullshit! Do you know how long it takes me to get anything done so I don’t hurt anyone’s overly-sensitive feelings?,” said Sergeant James Simpson. “I am calling my monitor and getting out of this shit sandwich.”
Marine Commandant General James Mattis ignored repeated requests for interview on the matter, but after considerable pressure, sent a fax to The Duffel Blog which only read:
Harden The Fuck Up.
Very Respectfully Submitted with Titty Sprinkles,
Lt.Col. Lourian reports that his emergency ethics stand-down for the battalion has been a great success.
“Sgt. Simpson gave multiple classes on professionalism, suicide prevention, and sexual harassment — which were really great and I think helped the Marines quite a bit.”
According to witnesses at the brief, Lt.Col. Lourian sat quietly behind his Battalion, stroking and whispering to a set of Colonel insignia that he keeps in his cover.
