The most dangerous neighborhood in NYC. And how to tell which guys are probably criminals.

Angry Crows Attack Police Officers In Everett, Washington

Officers at a Seattle-area police department have found themselves in a flap with some unusual suspects: an angry flock of birds.
Crows have been attacking police in the parking lot of an Everett Police Department precinct station. They’ve been swooping down and dive-bombing the officers as they walk to and from their cars.
Lt. Bob Johns said he recently was flanked by the aggressive birds and “got zinged.”
“They’re like velociraptors,” Johns said.
One officer used his siren to try to scare away the crows, but it didn’t work. The birds responded by decorating his car with droppings, The Daily Herald reported.
All Crows Are Brilliant
it’s true! they are so fucking amazing!
Walter Benjamin, One Way Street and Other Writings (via fuckyeahdialectics)
Do you know (of course you do) the secret police (CIA, etc.) go to great lengths to murder and consequently silence every effective black person the moment he attempts to explain to the ghetto that our problems are historically and strategically tied to the problems of all colonial people. This means that they are watching you closely. I worry. If something happened to you I just wouldn’t understand.
It’s no coincidence that Malcolm X and M. L. King died when they did. Malcolm X had just put it together (two and three). I seriously believe, they knew all along but were holding out and presenting the truth in such a way that it would affect the most people situationally-without getting them damaged by gunfire. You remember what was on his lips when he died. Vietnam and economics, political economy. The professional killers could have murdered him long before they did. They let Malcolm rage on muslim nationalism for a number of years because they knew it was an empty ideal, but the second he got his feet on the ground, they murdered him. We die too easily. We forgive and forget too easily."

Gerhard Scholem, letter to Walter Benjamin (via howtotalktogirlsdialectically)
Powerful and resonating, particularly considering Benjamin’s suicide (unless you entertain the murder conspiracies, which I’d rather).
A news station was interviewing a man who lived near a dangerous intersection. It is known for an inordinate number of car crashes.
