What I've Learned from Two Years Collecting Data on Police Killings




a comment on the article:

past year, 33 police officers were killed by firearms, where as the amount of “justifiable homicides” by police is over 300. In Seattle in 2012, 20% of the homicides in the entire city that year were committed by police officers. That’s fucked and that’s institutional.

This is really scary. I probably shouldn’t be surprised, but I am.

I totally missed quilt pics last week, but since it was my first semester of teaching since Dec. 2012, I have an excuse. :) No more, though!

This week I’m featuring quilts in the style of the one I’m currently working on: a snowball block. I don’t know for sure, but I’m guessing the name comes from traditionally using white fabrics for the centers so that when you attach triangles to all four corners, you get an octagon that looks like a round ball. Pairing the snowball block with a nine-patch like in this one from the St. Croix Quilters is common. The SCQ page has more information on making these blocks if you’re interested.

Is there anyone out there that is 30 or over? Sometimes I feel like the oldest person here.  If you are 30+ please reblog this.
