I don’t know if you guys have seen this or if anyone has posted it but I really wanted to share this because I am so disgusted; sign the petition here!!!!!!! Full story below:

On June 23, 2012 Darren Rainey, a 50-year-old mentally ill state prison inmate in Miami-Dade County, died after guards responded to his defecating in his cell by locking him into a 180-degree shower for two hours—at which point his skin was separating from his body. Local police, and the state, failed to properly investigate. The case was only brought to light in recent months by The Miami Herald. After two years, no one has been held criminally accountable, or even charged.
Darren was serving a two-year sentence for drug possession and housed in a psychiatric unit. After his death, guards forced another prisoner, Mark Joiner, to clean up the shower where Darren died, including chunks of skin.
"He was crying, please stop, please stop, Joiner said. And they just said "Enjoy your shower, and left."
Only the U.S. Department of Justice can properly investigate this terrible crime, and a broader culture of abuse in Florida’s prisons that has led to other unnecessary deaths, and which falls especially hard on the mentally ill.


THIS PETITION NEEDS ALMOST 50,000 MORE SIGNATURES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“And you will cry, and maybe sometimes you will feel the air being sucked out of your lungs. Sometimes you will feel as though you are drowning and you have forgotten how to swim and there will be times when you will feel your body being paralyzed and you will feel as though you have lost all vision and hope. But it’s okay because it doesn’t end there, you will recover and you will live on and you will be stronger than ever and honestly, darling, just take a breather and I promise you that there will come a time when you feel things changing for the better.”

"Long Live The Queen"

Fun Fact: A lot of the Avatar series are based on East Asian history.

In “The Last Airbender”, it was influenced by the Japanese occupation in Korea, China and Southeast Asia, and Tibetan and Ethnic minorities in China’s genocide & extinction of ethnicities and cultures.

In this case, Korra Season 3 is when the last Empress of China’s tightening rule in China and the Communist revolutionary takeover of Asia with the belief that people should rule themselves. Republic City is based off primarily on Hong Kong.
