Missing Bullets
Do you remember that woman who got shot in the head in Ferguson early last week? Her name is Mya Aaten-White (SpookWrites on Instagram) and she’s going to be okay. She woke up from surgery one week ago, and the doctors and nurses told her that the police came and confiscated the bullet. Assuming they would come back and question her about the shooting, she waited. For days. No one came to take her statement, though media reports the incident as a “drive-by”. Mya has claimed no such thing, and remembers no such thing.
It has been over a week since the incident, and no policeman has spoken to Mya or followed up. Her lawyer has contacted authorities in search for the bullet and had this to say:

"I’ve talked to both the St. Louis County Police Department and Ferguson… they have no record… no file number, no report… They don’t have anything."

So anyway, that happened.
During the incident, a woman filmed herself questioning a police officer about it. She also filmed a different police officer physically stopping the first one from answering.

Anyway.
How’s it going with you?

"With a kind word and a strong embrace, she had the ability to remind us that we are all God’s children; that we all have something to offer. And while Maya’s day may be done, we take comfort in knowing that her song will continue, ‘flung up to heaven’ – and we celebrate the dawn that Maya Angelou helped bring."
— President Obama on the passing of Maya Angelou.
